If you have the boot disk try loading it by restarting it holding down the c key. If the hard drive image doesn't appear on the desktop it is bad, which is my guess of what the problem is.

I need to unlock a iMac running OS 10.6.1


Step 1:

Turn off your iMac G5

Step 2:

Power it back on. Right when you hear the startup sound, hold down Command and S together. This will bring up a black and white terminal prompt.

Step 3:

If at this point, it asks for a password (firmware password), power back down the iMac, change the amount of RAM (remove one stick of RAM and leave the other in), turn the computer back on and when you hear the start up sound hold down Command + Option + P + R. Keep holding until it restarts again. Once it restarts again, let it boot up, then shut it down again and put the stick of RAM back in. This will reset the firmware password and should allow you to continue onto the next step.

Step 4:

Once you are successfully at the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing enter after each line.

mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

Step 5:

That's it! Once you boot back up, you should have a brand new administrator account that you can use to access all files and remove other accounts.

When I turn on the computer it takes a while to boot up, and when it does it stays idle for 10 seconds or so then shuts off?


Sounds like there may be a problem with your OS X.
You will need to boot from your OS X DVD and run your Disk Utility to do a repair on your operating system.
To do this, start your iMac and pop in your DVD. Once you hear the boot up sound, hold the Option/Alt key. You will be given the option to choose between your hard drive boot up and DVD boot up, so choose the DVD. It'll take a while longer to load than usual as you're booting from a DVD, but once your Mac has booted up, use Spotlight (Apple + Space, type "Disk Utility") to load up your Disk Utility program. Once you've got that open, select your hard drive on the left and click "Repair Disk Permissions" and then click "Repair Disk."
Once you're done, reboot and your Mac should be working good as new.

Powers on , wont boot and cant insert a disc to get it to boot.


To eject an optical disc at startup, hold down the mouse key on a wired mouse immediately after turning the iMac on with the power button. Keep it held down until the disc ejects, which should occur within two minutes. If you hear the disc trying to eject but failing, it is physically jammed in the drive and will have to be removed by a professional technician.

Try resetting the Pmu.
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Good luck

My iMac G4 turns on and goes to the grey startup screen with the apple and loading circle, but stays there, and gets stuck, and after a few minutes shuts off on it's own.


You may have to reinstall you OS e.g. tiger, leopard with the disks that came with your computer. that should solve your problem

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
