Hi guys, I have an iMac 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo machine, I had it re-installed with Snow Leopard, but in the process I lost iLife, and the original install disk 1 is nowhere to be found, how can I recover the lost software? Or I have no other choice than to buy a new iLife?

Contact Apple and explain the situation. They may have a record of your purchase of iLife and send you another CD for a small fee.

MA878LL iMac 24" core 2 duo 2.4 do not turn on,


Checking the power supply isn't the easiest thing to do, it involves pulling apart the entire machine.
You can try resetting the SMC, unplugging all power, hold the power button for 5 seconds, replace power, then attempt to turn on.
if it still won't turn on, and assuming you didn't get AppleCare or it is expired (past 3 years) it might be worth taking in to an Authorized Apple Repair Facility and see if they will check it out for free. If it is under warranty, most definitely take it in or call 1-800-APL-CARE
If neither of those are an option, Power Supply http://www.ifixit.com/Apple-Parts/iMac-Intel-24-Inch-2-4-2-8-GHz-or-3-06-EMC-No-2211-GHz-Power-Supply/IF169-002
a tear down from iFixit for the 20" model, it is most likely very similar for your model as well http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Installing-iMac-Intel-20-Inch-EMC-2133-and-2210-Power-Supply/1006/1
Hopefully that helps. Good Luck

I have imac. and i want to change his operating


Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here: http://www.apple.com/macosx/ On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.

Lost my admin password how do I reset it


Restart the MacBook from the original install disk or Snow Leopard install disk, then after selecting the Language, go to the menu and you'll see 'Reset Password', just select the user you want to reset (There will only be one in most cases) type in a new password or leave blank (not recommended) , and restart as normal.

Macbook black will not start beyond the initial 'bong'. Blue screen followed by endless spinning gear. PRAM, SMV reset, no go. Safe mode can't complete. With battery or on power adapter same result....


Hello yang2699tlk,
Try this instead of using your Leopard Disc.

  1. Immediately after the "bong" press and hold down "Command + S".
  2. Wait for blinking cursor and then type fsck -y (exactly like that).
  3. If you receive an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
  4. If you receive a "Disk has been modified" then repeat the fsck -y command until you get an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.

This set of commands entered in "Single User Mode" will repair your disk. If this does not work remove the hard drive, plug it into another Mac and transfer your data to a different computer. Then install a new hard drive and reinstall Mac OS X.

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote. Thanks.

If your iMac is an Intel Core 2 Duo running Leopard, it's certainly not a G4.
From the symptoms described, you have either a bad LCD panel or a bad LVDS cable. Either way, what the tech told you is wrong. They can both be replaced. Whether it is cost-effective or not is for you to decide.

Bought used iMac and need documentation for Leopard OS.


go to

manuals.info.apple.com/en/Welcome_to_Leopard.pdf

It gives you the basics. The support section on the apple website should help you as well also the help on Leopard is quite good. But if you want to get more information it is probably advisable to visit your local library or buy something like Dummies Guide to Leopard (Not Snow Leopard)

My imac 0s 10.5.7 goes blank and restarts mid work. I thought maybe a mouse problem so took off the wireless and put on the one that came with the imac. That didn't solve the problem.


It sounds like either a hardware problem that has been shown up when you installed Leopard, or your Leopard install hasn't gone smoothly.
IS it a new install?
