A customer of mine has an imac and just got an ipad the other day. She was running an update on itunes so she could sync her ipad with it. Well after the update was completed it asked to reboot and it doesn't power on anymore. She told me it makes 3 beeping sound which could mean bad memory (assuming same setup as a pc). she also took it to the apple store and they told her she has a bad logic board and they told her she needs to spend the $800 for a logic board with them. I dont know what the deal is yet.
I do work on apples but they are not one I work with as much as a pc. I need to verify the 3 beeps when the imac is powered on but according to the customer that's all it does. I guess it could be a coincidence that memory went bad at that given time ? I'd like to think there is some sort of software issue causing all these problems seeing its been working fine until the update for itunes. I guess its just a weird situation overall.
I was wondering if anybody has an ideas or direction I should go towards. I just picked it up and need to set it up on my bench and see what happens. I'm pretty sure I included all the issues so far. Once I attempt to boot it up I will list any other information..
Well thanks for your help and time. I will add a reply soon...
