2008 iMac white grey screen

Block Image

I opened up my 2008 iMac and found not all cords were connecting the LCD. I hooked them back up but now when I start the iMac I hear a chime and get a grey screen with a big thick line across the top. It seems like the white line wants to progress down the screen but it doesn’t.

There is no hard drive installed. Hoping it is that and I’ll just need to install one. Any help would be appreciated. Theoretically couldn’t I just boot from an external hard drive?

thank you

Was this a salvaged system? Sounds like your systems drive was removed as it was going to be recycled.

At this point the parts costs are getting high! You’ll need at least a new drive, either a new display or logic board (or both). If you had an external bootable drive as well as an external display you might be able to diagnose this a bit more. If you don’t have these already that too adds to the bottom line.

So why am pointing the costs out? If this was a recovered system I don’t think its worth the effort to revive it. This series CPU is quite old other than simple apps and web surfing.

I picked it up on Craigslist for $20. The add said the hard drive had failed and was removed. I was thinking of picking up a hard drive on eBay for $20 and installing it. Not sure if it’s worth putting more than that into it.


Yes, its time to find another system sorry ;-{

If you're set don't forget to accept the answer.


Thank you. This will definitely save me throwing go money into this thing.
