    Cool Lightning bolt symbol
    I recently had my iMac system updated to Lion 10.7.3. After bringing my computer back home and turning it on, I was unable to mount any USB sticks and all the sound was completely gone and unable to turn on. I tried to restart the computer and was greeted by a big circle with a lightning bolt through it. Has anyone seem this symbol before or know anything about it. I shut the computer down and unplugged it for 5 minutes and then restarted and the problems were gone. But I am worried about the lightning bolt symbols that appear. Does anyone have any answers.

    When you say that you had your iMac updated, I think you're implying that you didn't do it yourself.

    Can you tell us a little more about who did it and what method was used?
    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!

    My hard drive crashed, my iMac was only 4 months old but the hard drive failed, so Apple put in a new hard drive and the operating system is now Lion 10.7.3.

    I'd pack it up and haul it into the Apple Store. Clearly they didn't use the right distribution.
