    Send in already, but I doubt they can recover the files when HD dies. The only good thing is at least if they replace my HD, I dun have to pay.

    Maybe I should switch to PC....using my laptop to do the editiing now...but painful...so slooowwwww...

    No lah...PC will die too, but at least I know how to fix. The Mac OS is harder to understand, no extension etc. OS 9 and below is easy also.

    Zap PRAM first.

    Ur 'died' is it suddenly switch off and when u touch the back of ur iMac, u feel is extremely, extremely hot?

    U might have a problem with heat. I recall that there are some reports of older G5 iMacs where heat is concerned. Remove ur HDD first and call up the service centre.

    Hi Jeff,

    I was working on some files when the computer hanged, so I restart by pressing the power button at the back. Then it died.

    I've sent it in, heng, still got warranty.

    Thanks
