iMac 27 late 2009 core i5 won't load at all
Hey folks, hoping someone can assist me... as the title states, my iMac will not load any way I try. Won't load in safe, normally, or via any of The drive options I try (main hd or recovery). I've tried all the control commands, including single user mode (I did as a few guides suggested and still no dice) I cannot try target mode as my only other computer is a PC and not a mac.
I've tried removing ram, I've reset the pram as well. I've found all 4 LED's and they all light up and stay lit up.
Originally my dang video card died, I bought a replacement (which was actually an upgrade to what I had. Went from the 4 series 512kb to the 6 series with 1gb) I replaced it and started the power on process and that's when this allllllll started. I removed and reinstalled it as well.
I do not have the oem cd to try in it either so I'm screwed on that idea. I also cannot get the apple diagnosis to work, nor can I get it to try booting via the internet recovery method. Basiclally I have a fancy paperweight at the moment.
Is this a good question?
