My iMac Won’t Start Up
If you have gone back to your Mac and it wont turn on try not to worry, it probably only requires a simple fix. To start the recovery process you need to reboot it from its Recovery Partition. Only the newer iMacs can perform this including Macs that are running on OS X Lion or later, if you have a earlier edition of a iMac simply boot it from its install DVD.
If you are in fact using the Recovery Partition you can reboot the system by holding down ‘Command and R’, however if your rebooting it from the install DVD hold down the letter ‘C’ whilst it restarts. When your Mac has booted using the Recovery Partition, you’ll see a Utilities Window, from there select Disk Utility. If you’ve booted from a DVD, choose Disk Utility from the Install menu. Finally Click the First Aid tab and then click on your start up volume, click ‘repair’ at the bottom of that window and repair the start up disk. Now restart normally and your iMac should be back up and running.
