My imac wont turn on!
It sounds like something is either corrupted on your system or one of
the files in your imac may be
suspect. What I would suggest is get your system disc boot the imac
down holding down the c key on your keyboard. Once it is booted up go to the file menu and find the disk utility.
Open up the disk utility and first of all repair your disk permissions
and then run disk verify and if an error comes up choose to repair it.
If this does not work. I would suggest installing a clean system.
Again with the system disk in your computer restart your machine with
the c key held down on your keyboard. Choose to
do an install but remember to select preserve users. This will give you a
clean instal with your files and preferences intact.
Once your machine has restarted it is well worth setting a second account under system preferences under accounts as if one account becomes corrupt in the future you have a second account to fall back on.
For prevention of any problems in the future I would download Onyx from this website
which also talks you through the method of using it. I use it every
month just to keep my mac in tip top condition.
