Do I have logic board issues?
A few days ago,my iMac froze and became unresponsive so I just erased my hd.
For awhile after erasing the drive,I could still boot the machine while holding the option key or using Command+R. At this time I DID NOT have the install DVD to reinstall the operating system .
So,I ordered the retail install DVD from Apple but now the computer will not boot from a DVD.What happened in the last couple of days is a mystery to me.
Now,I have an iMac stuck at the white screen. It boots up with the Apple chime and then goes to the white screen where it stays.
I cannot get anything using Command+R. Still have just a white screen.
Zapping the PRAM produces the chimes. I let go of the keys after the second chime......back to the white screen.
Starting while holding the option key will produce the cursor but I still have a blank screen.
I removed the memory modules and got the beeps whenever I tried to start it.
I'm thinking a bad hard drive or video card.
I don't know anything else to try. I only have the 1 Mac. I also have a cheap PC laptop.
Anybody have any ideas?
In the past year,on occasions,the computer would freeze up and would require a forced shutdown but after that all was well. This only happened a few times so I never thought much about it.
Is this a good question?
