Imac won’t boot hangs midway imac 21.5inch
if you see this screen. on an 21.5 inch imac or for that matter on pretty much any imac. it may mean 2 different things usually.
first – the most obvious and most common issue that you might be facing is hard drive failure. all older and also newer imacs still use regular hard drives and regular hard drives tend to fail sooner or later. hard drive failure will prevent computer from booting like that also in many cases. so to find out if your hard drive is ok do this: turn imac off, then power it on and hold option key. that will take you to boot menu and from there you choose to boot into recovery partition.
if your recovery partition is not there. then you turn imac off and turn it back on while this time holding Command+R keys. this will take you to internet recovery option. this way is a little longer. but whichever way you choose the goal here is to go to disk utility and test the hard drive. run first aid and see what it says. so you can find out why your Imac won’t boot and hangs midway.
from there if you get a message in disk utility in red that says your hard drive needs to be repaired. its a good indication that imac hard drive is going bad and needs replaced (hopefully you have a backup!)
if the hard drive passes test and turns out ok however. and still you Imac won’t boot hangs midway. then the issue is different. and that brings us to our point number two!
Second reason why you may see above screen when Imac won’t boot hangs midway. is video chip failure.
it is also a common issue especially on 27 inch imac, but also happens on 21.5 inch imac as well as older 20 and 24 inch that many people still use! graphics chip failure is very common and can be fixed by replacing graphics chip or fixing existing one! and at fastest mac repair and pc repair newbury park we do both! and we do it the quickest and without any hassles to you!
