Hello,

 

my recently used bought iMac 27 won't boot up. After the greyish Apple Logo and spinning circle, the screen just goes grey.

 

Before these probles occured, the iMac froze randomly with a greyscreen while I was working. After a reboot everything was working again.

 

 

If I try to boot with the System DVD (10.6) the same symtoms occur.

 

I did reset the pram, start with cmd+s, safe mode (3 beeps!), unplug it for a while, eject the dvd, perform sbin/fsck -fy (3 times OK)

 

 

mid 2011, i5 3,1, 8gb, 1gb graphics card

 

randomly it shows a bluescren instead of login screen

 

 

 

Yes, I read this article. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2570

 

Is my RAM damaged?
