Question about Apple iMac Computers & Internet
My iMac boots well and suddenly freezes and beeps constantly unless I press the power button for a few seconds to power off. This happens several times in a day. I am using mountain lion with all the new updates.
Only a guess.. Virus/malware/Trojan Try every other suggestion, hopefully you have back up, could try reloading saved mirror copy

The question mark usually relates to the computer not finding a system. Usually a bad hardrive. The beep at the beginning can be faulty RAM.
I would suggest taking the computer to your closest authorised apple dealer for them to diagnose further.

Safe mode just requires holding shift down during start up and if it starts up at all this should be possible. Once in safe mode, you should be able to use Disk Utility to Verify disk and Fix Permissions. To Repair disk or with/without safe mode you need to startup with your install disk and on the first screen or after selecting language, use options to select Disk Utility. You really should tell us the MacOS version--10.3.9 10.4.11 10.5.8 or 10.6 are current and tell us your install disk version, too. With safe mode you can use terminal to run fsck to fix the disk, read the man page. Alternatives include starting up in Target Disk Mode (command+t at startup) and using your computer as an external disk for another Mac by Firewire or possibly USB, fixing it using the others software. These methods in descending ease.
A now permanently dark screen would indicate a bigger problem and a trip to an Apple store for an evaluation. Tell us your iMac model--could affect whether you can easily savage your disk data in this case. -Ken

same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it
