I'm having start up issues with my mac. The LED flashes and won't boot or will but makes a loud beeping sound. Any chance restoring my firmware might deal with this problem?

well, when you say "restore firmware"...did this all start after a firmware update?

See if this relates to your problem.

Which iMac are you using?

When all else fails, try everything!
