iMac Desktop Not Responding At Booting

Apple has introduced a low cost version called iMac in its range of desktop computers. This desktop is very easy to use and latest features embedded in it, iMac has been designed to target all the office and home users. iMac comes in four models: iMac G3, iMac G4, iMac G5 and iMac (Intel-based). These models differ in design with major changes in outer looks. iMac G5 uses the PowerPC chip architecture. Other design specifications include 10/100BASE-T Ethernet port, V.92 modem, serial ATA hard drive, video-out port and others.

But, sometimes, this is observed that iMac G5 stops responding at startup. The issue may lie in operating system, for which OS reinstallation and hence Mac Data Recovery can be required. Other problems include problematic external devices and hard drive issues.In order to see if it is not an external device problem, we need to first disconnect all of them including FireWire, Ethernet, mouse, keyboard and USB.

Then, we need to reconnect these devices one at a time and restart the computer system. If system stops responding only after connecting a specific device, then we need to replace the device. The issue can also be of corresponding cable. So we need to check for cable problem also and replace it. Another issue could be corrupt software. So we need to start the system using Software Install and Restore disc.

If system starts normally, then the issue is damaged software and we need to reinstall the operating system to get the fresh copy of software using Archive and Install method. If the issue still persists or hard disk is not visible while installing Mac OS X, the hard disk may have gone corrupt.

We can use Disk Utility or reformat the hard disk and recover the lost data using backup or Mac Recovery software. We can also use third-party Drive Utility to reformat the hard disk, if it is not visible even in Disk Utility. However, if the hard drive is still undetectable, we need to replace it as the issue can be physical. But, before that we need to extract data by availing Data Recovery Mac service .

Mac Recovery software are the scanning utilities for formatted hard disks which extract lost data, maintaining data integrity. However, under Mac Data Recovery service, the physically failed hard drive is repaired and lost data is extracted using advanced tools and techniques.

This Mac Recovery software is compatible with HFS, HFS+, HFSX and HFS Wrapper file systems. Phoenix Mac Data Recovery supports all Mac OS X 10.3.9 and above versions. Stellar also offers safe Mac Recovery service through Class 100 Clean Rooms, where experts extract lost data using appropriate tools and procedures.
