You can try shutting down your iMac and then turning it back on. You’ll need to go to the recovery disc and click on Disk Utility. If this does not work then you may need to reset the PRAM and NVRAM. Another option that you could try is to start the computer in safe mode.
You can try running Disk Utility to see if it can isolate and solve the problem. If this does not work then try reinstalling the Lion OS X. You can also try installing a third party disk utility application like Disk Warrior. Disk Warrior is supposedly more powerful that Disk Utility.
This usually occurs if the administrator account has been deleted or if the OS X is corrupted. You can log into safe mode and disable the guest account. If you don’t have an administrator account you can create a new one easily. If your OS X is corrupted, you should try reinstalling it.
You can transfer music from your iMac to an iPad by using iTunes. First locate the music that you want to transfer. Open iTunes, drag and drop the selected songs to iTunes. Once the songs are copied you wil need to connect the iPad to your iMac. Click the music tab on the iPad and choose the music that you want to sync. Click sync and the music will automatically get transferred from your iMac to your iPad.
First try clicking “Repair Disk Permission “which is located at the Disk Utility. After that process is completed you should shut down your Mac and hold down the “Command-Option-P-R” keys before the gray screen appears. As soon as the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound, release the keys and check if the internal microphone gets detected. If this does not work then shut down the iMac again and this time when you restart it while holding down the Shift Key. This will start the computer in safe mode and you can check if the internal microphone is detected.

iMovie 10 problem I have a late 2012 iMac running OSX 10.9.4. 32 GB memory 1600NHz DDR3, Processor 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7. I have 3 external hard drives. A 3 TB (LaCie) for Photos and music; a 4TB (WD) for Documents and download storage; a 6 TB (WD) for Movies. This latter drive is used for my Dad's large 8mm collection that I had digitized, plus my Hi* collection that was also digitized. The 4 and 6 TB drives are Thunderbolt. I had originally used the 6TB drive for Time Machine backup, but it ceased backing up changes. So, I ordered an 8TB WD. Originally, my movies were on the 4TB drive so when I hooked up the 8TB (as my Time Machine), I moved all those files from the 4TB to the 6TB. On the Movies (6TB) drive I noticed three files "iMovie Library.imovielibrary 1 2 and 4. Each was nearly a TB in size. Since my iMovie Library.imovielibrary was still in my iMac User Folder and opened up iMovie 10 ok, I deleted them. Later while working on iMovie, it crashed and just about every project and event was gone. The Theater is still showing up intact. I still have all Events and Projects. They were just gone from iMovie. BTW, when I did "Update files" it started updating until at about 90% done, it crashed. My Theater is still intact. 1.Should I just Trash this iMovie app and download a new one? 2. Would my Theater still be there?
BTW, I have the iMovie Crash Report word file (54 pages) if you need that
