Stribes, stuck in opening grey screen, after crash.
iMac Intel 24" EMC 2134 (model A1225)
I was online watching something, then my mac crashed got stuck and was repeating the same sound over and over. I switched the mac of the hard way, and when I turned it on again it had a weird pixel image and got stuck after the opening sound, logo and in the grey screen.
The screen was not normal, though.
I have been looking around on different sites (including this) and have tried the "alt+command+r+p"
and finally I ran first the small and then the big hardware test - the screen was still striped - but it came out clear.
When I restarted the computer again everything seemed to work perfectly normal. Apple came up with failure report that I did not save :( but sent in, and then when I went back to the same site where it crashed (Danish broadcasting - nothing obscure!) again - with weird pixels and frozen screen. When I restarted I was back to square one.
Now I am running the big hardware test again to see that once more can get it out its weird mode.
After this the machine crash again during a skype video call - no sound this time, and machine haven't come back since.
Is this a good question?
