Hi there,

If you have re-installed the RAM without any luck, it looks like you have to take trip to your closest Apple Repairer. It could be any number of problems. Video card, display, logic board. Only when it has been diagnosed will it be known. If the computer is less than 10 days old you can ask for a new one. Yours would be classed as DOA. If not, standard warranty it 12 months from the Invoice date.

Hope this helps

How can I increase the memory above the recommended on an iMac 3.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo


first you need to find out if the machine will take more RAM.
Some computers will only take a small amount like 4Gb where others you might get 16Gb in it So you have to find out from the manufacture or maybe the booklet you got with the computer if is possible

Startup screen has apple with spinning wheel then screen goes black


probably bad, might be disk, ram or logic board.

Try resetting pram and then try rebooting in safe mode by holding down letter s on start up. Try disk or drive select by holding down option key on start up. Make some effort, look up key commands on google and apple support.

Is there any way to replace super drive of apple imac by any other external optical drive


Yes. There is a tutorial here http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+21.5-Inch+EMC+2428+Optical+Drive+Replacement/5961
that will show you exactly how to access and replace it. Be SURE that you feel comfortable doing so though as you can do more harm than good if you aren't careful. Apple is notorious for tiny cables and logic board plugs that will break if not handled properly. Make sure you have the correct tools and that you have large enough suction cups to pull the screen out. If you pull on a small portion of the screen only, it will snap into pieces on you and they cost more than the drive to replace.

GOOD LUCK

IMac G3 Not Starting


Hey, RexKing:

Your problem is hard to diagnose with your current description without knowing where the clicking sound is coming from or exactly what it sounds like, but most likely the problem resides either with the power supply or its connection to the circuit boards. If you have access to any scrapped G3 iMacs to cannibalize for parts at an E-recycling depot, you can probably find just about anything you need, as long as you get the right model, as they changed key components a few times, but, like cars, a lot of parts cross over. The exact model description is on the bottom in really fine print.

In any case, you will have to take it apart to check out the power supply and/or other components, which is a bit tricky without a guide. You can find a really comprehensive Apple iMac G3 service document, for many of the later models, posted at this URL as an 11 Mb PDF file:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/103447/iMac-G3-Disassembly-Guide?autodown=pdf

Only catch is that to download it you need to sign up for a free SCRIBD account. (It's a document sharing co-op site.) Hopefully this won't result in years of spam. Good luck, and if you figure out the cause, please let me know. (I have about a dozen iMac G3s that I am gradually refurbishing.)

My iMac Won't Boot, The bong sound goes on and than my mac shuts off Whats Happened?


Try booting with a boot disk like the install disk or a Norton disk. If you cant see the hard drive image on the desktop it is bad. If you see the HD image the chances are you have a bad ram chip. To test the ram if you have more then one stick in there pull one at a time and try to boot. Hope this helps
