My iMac does not want to start. Apparently my little kid was playing with the keyboard, and when I sit to work my computer ask me to restart it by pressing and holding the power button. And when it suppesedly restart only shows me a white screen. Any help will be appreciate it. Thank you. I don't know what to do. I turned off by unpluging the cable for 2 days, and is still the same. I left it on for 2 days and the whole time it show me the white screen. What can I do? before take it to a apple store? Thank you.

Can you boot from your installation disk? run "disk utility" from the utilitiies menu. Select "repair disk" and "repair permissions". You my also try "zapping the PRAM" and "resetting the PMU" - Instructions may be different depending on your model.

Thank you. All of you for your help. Yesterday I talked to a friend and he tell me to restart the iMac while keeping pressed the ALT OPTION key, I did this and its allow me to restart the mac in the usual way. I didn't think on this before.
