Thanks Mayer, I'll let you know how I get on thank you again. Also as I can't do anything with it, is there anyway of getting at some of my files to backup. If not there's no worry.

Thanks again


Your data should be fine but if the machine won't boot you'll have to pull the drive and hook it up in an external enclosure or Universal Adapter. here's how to pull the drive: iMac Intel 27" EMC 2429 Hard Drive Replacement


Just got my Imac back this morning, it was the video card and they did replace for free thank you so much Mayer for your help
