    iMAC back from repair but immediately failed
    Ok,

    Received iMAC back from repair yesterday, it was under 1st year warranty and had been playing for a couple of months up but eventually stopped booting. I was constantly repairing disk, telling me it needed to be shutdown all the time, apps crashing, etc, etc

    They have apparently replaced the HD and I performed a Time Machine restore which completed without any hitches.

    Machine was working fine, went out for a couple of hours and returned to a blank screen but unit was on. Keyboard and Mouse lights would not bring it out of suspected sleep so I had no alternative but to switch off.

    On power up a bar appears and gets to about 10% and the unit switches off again, disk utility has given me the same error about it cannot repair so I'm back to square one where I suspect it's more than the HD

    To say I'm miffed is an understatement

    Send it back and have them look at it again. Who knows you might end up with a new iMac if they can't figure it out.

    Very nice! Glad to see they are going to take good care of you.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
