    Hi, Had a problem with my 27" iMac (early 2010) Everything was totally dead on pressing power button. Did SMC reset by removing power cable, holding power button down for 5 secs, put power cable back and then pressed power button and hey presto all worked. Moved machine to a different desk and now still completely dead after trying a number of resets. Power cable is live. Any ideas.

    If its not switching on at all then all you can do is take it back to Apple as it should still be under warrenty
