    Hi,

    Having problems with a new Imac in school that has all my art course work on. When pressing the power button there is no start up, screen stays black. There is a noise from the Disc Drive, when you put your ear close you can hear the Disc spinning, occasionally it starts to make a loader noise like its trying to spin to full speed maybe, but stops before it can. Green light can be seen from bottom, tried unplugging and waiting, tried pressing the cmd R-P keys down at start up. Also tried as suggested on the apple website to use a paper clip to manually eject the disc. None of these have worked. Don’t know what to do anymore, and I really need to carry on with my art work its getting close to the deadline.

    All help much appreciated,
    Ian

    Trey pressing and holding the mouse down, while turning your mac on. This should eject your stuck disk.

    You said you tried pressing the cmd R-P keys
    It is hold ''Option + Command + P + R'' all at the same time. While turning your mac on.
