I have an iMac and it starts booting after 5 minutes. When I turn it on the chime sounds and then the screen turns grey, lights up for a sec and turns grey again, 5 minutes after that it starts up. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
System:
Mac OS 9.2.1
192 MB Ram

Zap your PRAM by holding down the command-option-p-r keys at startup. Wait until after youve heard the third chime to release the keys. Then hold down the command-control keys until it asks you if you want to rebuild the desktop database. Once fully booted run Norton Disk Doctor. If the problem persists let us know.
