Imac freezes up

I have iMac computer made in 2008.RAM 2GB.Recently it frequently freezes up (beach ball appears and no matter how long I wait it does not go away) Disk Utility does not indicate any problems .Considering this and the fact that I do not hear any clicks,noises etc makes the impending failure of HD unlikely.The only way to deal with the problem is to switch off the computer using a power button.Switching to another browser does not help.It can happen regardless of what I am doing eg accessing a webpage reading email)When these problems occur there is usually approx 50% of fre memmory and a lot of free space on HD.I did not recently install any new sofrware My operating system is OX 10.8.6

This sounds like overheating.. if the fan on your processor has failed you will get some time when you can use the pc and then it stops. Turning off for 15 minutes and then back on again gives you a little more time.
Solution.. check cooling fins are clear of dust and the fan is running freely, lack of cool airflow is the usual cause. if there is no dust and the fan is running then it is possible that the processor is suffering from failing ram.. try replacing your ram..
good luck.

It could be "bad RAM" -- run a RAM-testing program, or remove the RAM and install different RAM.

Like trying to use chalk to write on a chalk-board that has a few "greasy" spots, and being unable to read what you wrote, having bad RAM causes the computer to "freeze" when it cannot read from the RAM.

When you say you've used Disk Utility, have you done both Repair Permissions, and Repair Disk? For Repair Disk you need t boot from a different drive, the original install DVD if you have it?

Another thing to try is, remove and and then replace the RAM chips, sometimes the connections need to be re-seated.

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.

My 24" Aluminium iMac (early 2008 model) with 2.88Ghz 320g hard drive and 4g rams would freeze out of nowhere...I have ran various program tools to scan (tinkertool, DiskWarrior etc) soft and hard ware but...

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

In cases where you are experiencing issues with your iMac 24" and you have already tried hard drive and software repairs (including Tinkertool and Disk Warrior), one troubleshooting step I would recommend you try is unseating and re-seating your RAM card one module at a time.

Once you have tried this, then run Disk Warrior, run the Repair Disk Permissions (at least twice).

Once you have run the Disk Repair option, then perform a Disk Rebuild (it will not remove your files from your hard drive but actually rebuilds the Mac OS X directory) and reboot your iMac.

Try this procedure and see if that makes a difference in your iMac's performance.

Let me know if this helps.

Open the Activity Monitor application can see what process is taking the most CPU time.
You can also use the "top" utility by opening the Terminal program and then typing "top" and pressing return at the command prompt. To quit top just press the "q" key.
