check for faulty RAM

Apple 2.16GHz... | Answered on Dec 04, 2013

A few ways of doing this

1) restart mac and press down the mouse button after you hear the startup noise

2) if that does not work try opening up disk utility and click on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject

3) or open up terminal found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in
drutil tray eject and then press return

4) Finally what to do is try pick up your imac tilt the
imac to the one side and press the eject key and hopefully the effect of gravity will allow the CD to fall out.

However, I would say that DVD drives in all macs are a bit suspect and if
your macbook is still under warranty or under AppleCare take it back to the Apple Store and tell them that the DVD drive is faulty and they will replace it free off charge.

If it is out of warranty there is one other way to do it which I have used recently but IT CAN BREAK THE DVD DRIVE (Use it at your own risk), so only use it as a last resort. Get a thin piece of plastic (or credit card) and put a piece of double sided tape on it then with the macbook switched off insert the piece of plastic with the tape facing down in relation to the keyboard. Put it in about half an inch and you may be able to drag the DVD out.

Hope this helps.

  • Verify that the power outlet you're using is good and your power cable is firmly connected to the wall outlet-if using a surge protector, be sure that it's firmly plugged into the wall outlet. Also, try temporarily plugging directly into the wall outlet to eliminate any issue with the surge protector; plug a different electronic device into the same wall socket to make sure the socket works, and also try the iMac's power cable in a different wall outlet.
  • Make sure the computer's power cable is firmly connected to the computer.
  • If any external devices are connected to your iMac, disconnect them and try to turn the computer on again. If the iMac will power up when those devices are removed, but not when they are connected, contact the manufacturer of those devices for assistance.
  • Try resetting the iMac's SMC
  • Remove and reinstall the SO-DIMM memory modules, located in the bottom of the computer.
  • Resetting the SMC for Mac Pro, Intel-based iMac, Intel-based Mac mini, or Intel-based Xserve

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the computer's power cord.
    3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    4. Release the power button.
    5. Attach the computers power cable.
    6. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

The Audio drivers for your Mac audio device had stopped working.

First try downloading and installing the latest combo update for your Mac OS version, that may repair the problem.

Check the bar at the left on Apple download page.

If that does not work, then you may need to reinstall Mac OS.

Every company has quality control issues, Remember apple only has less than 10 percent of the market and they are exploding due to the IPOD and ITUNES so they are scrambling to keep up. Of course that not our problem its thiers but they are trying. Just for reference I have a Mac Plus in my garage which can still get on the internet. Quality has been there staple and if they didnt out source so much to keep up with demand I am sure those things wouldnt happen nearly as much.

Hello, you can test your parts using your Apple Hardware Test. But you can also see if the system profiler sees it, by going in the apple menu, about this mac, more info. The best test to do is connecting a device on it though.

Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
So, tell me is this a 17”, a 20” or a 24” iMac?
Have you ever opened or had this iMac opened by a technician ? If so, they may not have put it back together properly.
If not, this sounds like you might have to get in there and re-seat the optical drive.
are you handy and courageous or do you want to have someone else take care of it.
I should not be an expensive repair, no parts necessary, Apple service center should take care of this for about $150
Otherwise, take a look at this and maybe try it yourself:
Now I know, it's a Korean website, in Korean, but the list on the right hand side, has the take apart information you need.
Good luck

When rebooting press and hold the Alt key until it displays all bootable drives. Now insert your disk. If it works install Leopard from here. If not then your drive is dead or faulty and needs checking or replacing.

All the best

Hi There,
9 times out of 10 any faults encountered to hardware during an upgrade are due to a faulty or misinterpreted install. To rectify this download the combo installer from here. It's pretty huge at 668MB so will take ages to download but it should repair our drive situation.
Hope it works out for you
All the best

Sound is controlled in the Systems Preferences. Go to the Apple icon (top left on top menu bar), then Systems Preferences > Sound. Check the Input Output configurations, making sure that mute is off and volume is on appropriately. I would think the "Built In" choices would be appropriate. I hope this helps.
