    Mac doesn't startup normally anymore, only safe mode

    mariomewis

      I have the latest Yosemite insist (iMac Late 2009 ) and have tried everything from instructions found on the web :



      * Resetting memory

      - Recovery mode

      * Reinstallation Yosemite

      - Hard disk controlled via disk utility : not to find errors

      - Try to boot from a bootable USB stick



      The problem remains: the Mac boots but remains on the progress bar (after the apple ) hang around half.



      I do not have a backup via Time Machine .



      Does anyone know what can be done please?



      Thank you already .



      Sincerely,



      Mario Mewis .





      edit: According to the Internet there are many people with this problem with this series iMacs. Probleembij probably lies the ATI Radeon 4850 graphics card ..
