Imac 10.4.11 tiger.
Tried pulling plug out for 30 seconds.
Tried to restart holding down option, control, p, r, and waiting for the second symphony tone.
Did that, now a grey screen and apple logo.
Computer restarted, but still grey screen, apple logo, revolving gear.
I have imac OSX install discs 1&2.
Choose a language
Does not have next but continue
Pressed the repair disc.
Invalid key length
Volume ckeck failed
Error: the underlaying task reported failure due on exit.
1HFS volume checked
1 volume could not be repaired because of an error
Nothing has happened.
The permission repair seems to be stalled.
Still no movement
Did the above.
Imac stuck at grey reboot screen with the revolving gear.
22 minutes and nothing happening
Everything on my last 3 macs have been backed up.
No irreplacable files.
Just time consuming.
Would you advise me to spend on a newer up to date computer. Either way I will be willing to pay for our session today
Dustin....Thanks for your help in this matter. Please bill me.
