It sounds like your imac really requires a tuneup. You can do this using an application which can be downloaded for free from http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11582/onyx select the version for your OS e.g. Snow Leopard, Lion etc. It is worth backing up up your machine first before running it. Start it up and it will first check the smart status of your hard drive then it will verify the startup volume (this can take a minute or so) click on the automation tab after reading the warning page. check under maintenance (repairs permissions and execute maintenance scripts) under rebuilding click on LaunchServices and Display of Folders' contents, under cleaning check all the boxes. And then click on execute. As it says this will take some time, possibly up to an hour, don't worry it will be worth it in the end. Once it is finished it will come up with restart or shutdown, press restart. Hope this helps.

How to reboot a colored apple imac computer


A normal restart only requires you to press the re-start button on the back of the CPU or on the front. You should hear the chime, the screen will come up and you will be taken to the Mac start-up screen (different OS will have different looking screens).
If the Imac has shut down suddenly or prematurely, you might not hear the chime but will see a grey screen with a status bar. Eventually you will see the normal Mac screen and your icons will slowly reappear.
If you do not get any start-up screen or any chime, unplug the unit, remove all peripherals ( such as USB cables etc) and leave it sit overnight. I have restored "dead" Macs by that simple technique.
If you see a screen but the Imac still won't boot, insert the restore disc, hold down the "C" key and restart from the disk. Or use disk warrior and start the same way. Disk Warrior will diagnose and repair problems with your OS.
If none of these strategies work, you may have internal component problems with your Imac that will require more expert repairs.

Vertical stripes on start up


Unfortunately, vertical stripes, most likely 2 inch wide, are indicative of GPU failure. The failure is cause by the GPU slowly detaching itslef from its mountings. This process made more common by the introduction of lead free solder. IF its under warranty... take it to Apple, if not, it's doomed. There are fixes available know as 're-flows' or re-balls' .. whilst these are different processes entirely, neither is a sure fix, and neither, if it works, are guaranteed to last more than a few months.

I would like to know if an older hard drive from imac model A1076 could be installed in a slightly newer imac, model A1145 and have it be compatible and working with no problems?


Hard drives are universal, and based on physical connection / type. So your older HD should work even if you have newer SATA connection. The connection is backwards compatible.

Rosetta stone farsi running slowly on iMac


The only thing I can see from your machine specs is that you only have 256 MB of RAM. This is quite low for running the system and also programs.
