internal HD loads, runs, stops with spin wheel
My iMac loads fine, then after a while my internal hard drive (or fan?) makes a ‘spin up’ sound and then I get the spinning beach ball and everything freezes up.
I’ve done multiple clean installs and I still eventually get this problem. No problem booting from my external drive.
In the past on a rare occasion I have had a fan go on constantly at boot which was fixed with a reboot but that hasn’t happened recently.
Tried Tech Tool Pro but that shows nothing wrong with my hard disk, either does the disk utility or the Apple hardware test (off cd). Nothing showing up wrong with the iMac using the Apple hardware test either.
Has my hard drive died or is it worse?
Is this a good question?
