    Angry Imac flatpanel won't start
    i am posting a thread because i like to have advise or help.
    I bought a Imac 17" 1 ghz with the knowledge that something
    should be wrong. Well there is something wrong but i don't know what.
    When i turn it on i get the normal start up screen but after a while get the reboot screen in grey. I have tried many different things but at the end it won't start. I cannot get the dvd drive installing macosx. It starts and then i get the reboot screen. In the verbose mode i get sentences with applintelcpumanagement. That is saying can't determin dependencies for etc.
    And at the end where it doesnt further it is saying:
    localhost mDNSResponder mDNSResponder-170 (jan 4 2008 18:04:16)[23]: starting

    Is there somebody that give a solution or is it the mainboard that is not working properly.

    made progress
    Well i changed the installed internal memory module 256mb to a 512 mb module.
    That did the trick and it started as normal.
    I bought it from somebody so i had t o fill in the password i don't have.
    So starting up from the install disk i got the same error and had to restart the imac as before . So i think that something is wrong with the ide controller maybe.
    Somebody else some ideas.

    Thank you for reading my case.
