iMac problem

Recommended Posts

At work we just got an iMac back to sort out(not the imac itself) but I have to sort out the imac now, when it starts it has a flashing file icon with a ? in it.

Is it broken, they also neglected to send back the mouse/KB, will any old USB shit wotk?

I'd already seen that, but nothing happens, I don't have the disc either, it was at a school and despite being told not to fuck around with it, they did.

They probably tried bootcamping it and wiped the wrong partition, you will need a copy of the install disc. If you can give me the model number I can look for the right ISO for you.

Cheers, that needs 10.5.7 (Leopard) I can't see the links from work, but you should be able to grab it off CNET. If you don't find it before I get home, I will send you a pm with a link to it.

Are supposed to get pretty warm?, like you can smell it warm? The top of it is a lot warmer than I would expect.

My 24" iMac would get roaring hot at the top, as long as you can hear the fans going then it shouldn't be an issue. Might be worth resetting the PRAM and PCU in case someone has buggered with fan control software.
