    My neighbor who is disabled has gone through so many cleaning people due to that very problem. He has a lot of nice things plus computer stuff and they were breaking stuff weekly. Amazing as these were supposed to be Professional people too.

    To the OP, Check like was said for any Damage to the outside of the iMac. It's a WELL BUILT system. Mine is very solid. I also wonder if they moved the desk real fast and made the system fall over. I have never seen any of the newer style iMacs ever shake like that while simply typing.

    somehow she bent the showerhead in my parents bathroom the other day, not the swivel part, but the solid metal pipe that carries the water. how the heeck does one do that???? and then she broke off part of the kitchen sink which i easily fixed and not so long ago she got my blanket caught in the vacuum and now it is slowly de-threading and it sux real bad.

    original poster....sounds like you are bringing your computer to the apple store on saturday to get it checked out. also contact the painting company and inform them of what happened when the painters were there.

    ok im pretty sure the problem is where the metal base connects to the computer. When adjusting the screen angle it makes a little noise and is more resistant than before. Would this be something easy to fix?

    On a pre-iSight iMac, you could simply take of the back cover (wouldn't void the warranty) and have a look at the hinge, if something's wrong. Unfortunately, Apple decided to entirely change the built up of the iMacs with iSight (G5 and Core Duo) so that you can't attain the hinge without taking out everything. And, opening it would simply void your warranty...

    I would bring it to an Apple repair center, and have them check it.

    You should bring it to an Apple certified repair center. I'm not from the US, so I don't know if compusa's repair service is Apple certified or not. If not, they aren't allowed to open an Apple computer that still is under warranty.

    I agree with Avalon. Have it looked at by a real Apple repair center. I would not trust CompUSA with it.
