When booting immediately after the first chime before the grey screen hold down keys (apple,option,p,r) allow the computer to restart if it still goes to that blank screen restart again and this time hold down only the (option) key or maybe (option,s) depending on model try option key first then select the main start up disk from the menu and click the arrow underneath

Have apple eMac forgot user password can you help


You need to start up from the system cd for the eMac then use 'Password Utility' to change the password.
Alternatively, if you are transferring the files to another Mac, you can start up the eMac in 'Target Disk' mode by holding down the 'T' key during start-up until a Firewire symbol appears on the screen. The computer can then be connected to another Mac which will see the eMac as an external HD.

Apple logo and loading symbol


If you have another MAC computer available, you can create a USB key to solve this problem:

If not, I'm afraid you will have to turn to an authorized apple service center. They will do the repair for you.

Mac will not boot, displays folder icon with alternating mac face symbol and ? symbol. have tried removing and externaly reformating the drive with no change. cannot get it to biit from cd


Hello
This situation comes when the System is not recognized. If you have tried to reformat the drive, then it will still display a folder icon with alternating mac face symbol, simply because no System is installed on the hard drive. To repair this, you should consider reinstalling the system using a System DVD (to boot from the dvd, hold the "c" key at startup.

When I turn on my Mac Book Pro


The flashing folder with hard drive symbol is telling you that the computer cannot find a bootable system folder (operating system). This could be because the hard drive is working properly, or the operating system folder has become corrupted. Try booting up from the system CD or DVD that came with your Mac Book Pro and see if it can repair your hard drive.

My Mac wont work. blinking Folder with "?"


Another alternative is to hold the "option" key as the Mac boots up to force it to recheck possible blessed start-up disks. If your hard disk drive shows up, select it. When it boots into OS X, immediately back up your data and restart the Mac with the OS X DVD (or CD) Install Disk. When you're in the boot menu from the OS X Install Disk, select "Utilities" then "Repair drive" and select your HDD. That should help OS X repair any file permissions or data corruption that may have occurred. I would also look into getting a new HDD. It seems to me that your current one may be failing and need replacement.
