Early 2009 24" iMac CONTINUALLY crashes...

The system freezes and/or restarts at least once a day as well (usually more like 3-10x), seems to be worst in Safari, but also happens on waking from sleep and anything that is graphic-related (I almost typed graphic-heavy, but even small graphic files/sites/apps that have previously not posed any problem suddenly are), or now also video--whether it is flash/html5 viewed directly online or video files played from the hard drive. Any ONE of these things is enough to either slow the system to a crawl (like a 2-page InDesign document or loading FaceBook timeline--small things that should not be problem weighing the system down) or causing automatic restart or system-wide freeze for which the only solution is to hold the power button and do a hard reboot.
While there were issues before installing Mountain Lion (a clean install, btw, specifically to try to eradicate this problem), it seems no better and progressively worse since the upgrade.
Besides the clean install, here's what I've tried:
-MacKeeper clean
-PRAM reset
-freeing up hard disk space (there is 275GB free on a 640 drive)
-reboot in safe mode
-shut down and unplug all peripherals and power, reboot
-using fewer programs (I work in graphic design, so I almost ALWAYS need Safari, Mail, InDesign, and usually Photoshop open. A lot, I know, but they aren't large files, and it's an almighty MAC after all, it should be fine--and forget about iTunes or iPhoto, opening them almost always causes a crash too... so no music while I work, at least not from iTunes)
Apple care ran out on this machine nearly a year ago, but really, these things should be more robust than a 4-year use-life...
I am not a computer tech, nor do I have the time or interest to pick apart panic logs to figure out what it all means. I just want it to work. Wasn't that Apple's motto for a while, "It just works"? Hmmm... not right. I should not have to either learn how to be a Genius or haul my 24" iMac to the nearest retail store AND pay for the repairs (if any) on a machine that is only 3.5 years old. That's ridiculous. That can't be my only 2 choices.
Anyway, here are 2 of the crash logs, one from today, and one from a couple days ago:
Hopefully someone with more knowledge than me can pick them apart and find the possible cause(s)

Any help is greatly appreciated

It's a
2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
I'll get more RAM, I'm sure it'll help... crashed again a couple times today before I could look for those processes (again, just Safari and Mail open)
Can't find the processes you mentioned earlier, I'm not sure where to search... spotlight is useless, and user files aren't showing anything so far...
If it helps, here's the latest crash report:

  • The internal hard drive on my early 2009 24" iMac is nearly full.  How do I add an external drive so that it functions just like the internal drive on the iMac?

    The internal hard drive on my early 2009 24" iMac is nearly full.  I have already worked to free as much space on the HD as possible.  How do I add an external HD and have the iMac read it as though it was part of the internal HD.  I know about external HD for additional storage and I do have an external HD, but, it is so much easier to search the drive when it is internal than having to perform a search on the internal drive and then a search on the external drives.  And, it is easier to save files to an internal drive so that I don't have to decide which external drive to use to save files.  In other words, I want to add an external HD and have it function as though I had purchased a larger internal HD.

    That is simply not possible. Every drive is a separate device. It cannot be used to extend an internal drive as though you had a seamlessly larger drive.
    What you can do is to create a striped RAID array using the internal drive and an external drive. However, doing this will erase the internal drive and you will lose everything on the internal drive. Furthermore, installing Lion or Mountain Lion becomes a bit of a problem because you cannot create a Recovery HD on a RAID and this tends to make the installer choke. However, you can clone an existing Lion or Mountain Lion system to the RAID and designate the RAID as a startup volume.
    I would not recommend the RAID solution, personally, but there are many who do. I prefer the basic solution of spending the money on a larger internal hard drive instead of an external hard drive.
    RAID Basics
    For basic definitions and discussion of what a RAID is and the different types of RAIDs see RAIDs.  Additional discussions plus advantages and disadvantages of RAIDs and different RAID arrays see:
    RAID Tutorial;
    RAID Array and Server: Hardware and Service Comparison.
    Hardware or Software RAID?
    RAID Hardware Vs RAID Software - What is your best option?
    RAID is a method of combining multiple disk drives into a single entity in order to improve the overall performance and reliability of your system. The different options for combining the disks are referred to as RAID levels. There are several different levels of RAID available depending on the needs of your system. One of the options available to you is whether you should use a Hardware RAID solution or a Software RAID solution.
    RAID Hardware is always a disk controller to which you can cable up the disk drives. RAID Software is a set of kernel modules coupled together with management utilities that implement RAID in Software and require no additional hardware.
    Pros and cons. Software RAID is more flexible than Hardware RAID. Software RAID is also considerably less expensive. On the other hand, a Software RAID system requires more CPU cycles and power to run well than a comparable Hardware RAID System. Also, because Software RAID operates on a partition by partition basis where a number of individual disk partitions are grouped together as opposed to Hardware RAID systems which generally group together entire disk drives, Software RAID tends be slightly more complicated to run. This is because it has more available configurations and options. An added benefit to the slightly more expensive Hardware RAID solution is that many Hardware RAID systems incorporate features that are specialized for optimizing the performance of your system.
    For more detailed information on the differences between Software RAID and Hardware RAID you may want to read: Hardware RAID vs. Software RAID: Which Implementation is Best for my Application?

  • Do Early 2009 24" iMacs have display oddities - yellow tinge?

    Hi all,
    After a dour, very unsatisfying experience with an eagerly awaited 21.5" iMac (and a bad experience at the Apple Store when I tried to replace the unit), I am looking to purchase a 24" refurb unit.
    Are the displays on the 24" iMac better - in terms of yellow tinge, gradient display? It would be great if any of the users of the Early 2009 24" iMacs could chime in...
    Changed title to reflect question

    Mine does. And just about everyone I've seen does. Apple actually sent me the new one to replace a 2 year old white 24" that exhibited the same problem. And, now that I've seen Apple has finally admitted to an issue on the newest iMacs, I'm calling Apple Care.

  • I need to replace my early-2009 20" iMac Screen. What fits?

    I have an early-2009 20" iMac MB417LL/A and I am having a very hard time finding which screen works for this computer. With window computers I just have to type in the name of the computer followed by LCD and I will find the one I need but its not so simple with Macs. Does anyone know where I can find a compatability list or something of that sort? So far I have found that there are apple part numbers but the LCD will be LG with a seperate part number. 661-4983 seems to work. I also found that Dell M201EW02 will work. Is this true?
    Help...please

    And from MichelPM's reference to LG as a supplier and your own finding of LG and a part number, you seem to have a match.

  • Using 10.4 on early 2009 Intel iMac 2.66 GHz

    Can I run 10.4 on an early 2009 Intel iMac 2.66 GHz? Need to run an early version of VectorWorks.

    No that will not work. However you might try installing 10.4 on an external HD and that may work. I would recommend using a FW 800 drive otherwise the performance will be pretty poor.

  • Early 2009 24" iMac Haywire Display: LCD Panel or Logic Board?

    Hi,
    My 24" display just developed severe vertical and horzontal lines, mouse trailing, color changing and flickering.  The problem begins as soon as the computer is turned on (even the Apple screen goes nuts).
    When I plug in an external display, the external looks just fine.
    This is one of the Nvidia GeForce 9400 chipsets, so there is no separate videocard board to replace - it is integrated onto the logic board.
    It seems like it should be the display panel because the external monitor works fine, but these are complicated machines.
    This is an iMac 9,1 Early 2009, Core2 2.66 Mhz machine.
    Thank you,
    Josh

    Can you connect an external monitor and test? If the artifacts do not show on the external monitor, some component of the display is faulty but not the logic board. The dispay repair is not cheap but cheaper than replacing an LB
    If the same artifacts show on both, well... it's the logic board.
    AHT seldom picks up display faults.

  • Intel iMac continuous crashes - cannot restart

    Computer has been running fine for the last 3 years (it has bootcamp running Windows).
    Have not had a problem before with crashes. Was using it all day today, then a grey colour came down my screen and a message told me to +restart my computer. hold down the restart key.+
    I did this and the computer restarted with an errorlog that i could send to apple - i did this and it worked fine for 10 minutes, then the same thing happened.
    I kept restarting and sending the errorlogs to apple - and the crashes have kept happening. I have notcied that my Entourage application is now also unexpectadly closing down.

    If anyone knows a solution I would be most grateful - I need ot get this sorted asap.

    Try following this procedure to reset SMC
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1543
    which is basically disconnecting all cables and power, and reconnecting following a precise procedure. If you are connecting into a crowded or old power strip (surge suppressor), try connecting it directly to the wall outlet, at least initially (as a test). Power it up with nothing connected, except for the power cord. If that works properly, connect just your keyboard/mouse and use it that way for a while, to make sure it continues to work properly.
    If the same issue occurs, even with nothing connected, you'll have to look at other causes.
    To see if it might be software, insert your Mac OS X installation disc and restart with C key held down to start up from the optical drive. Does it get to the Installer screen without crashing? If so, it may indicate some problem with your currently installed system.
    If it still crashes, one thing you can try is removing your RAM modules and reinserting them into their slots. While you are looking at the bottom edge of the iMac, wipe off the dust on the air intake vents; I added some RAM recently, and I was amazed at how much dust there was on those vents, blocking airflow.

  • Is there a diagram for putting in a new hard drive in my early 2009 model imac 24 inch

  • Early 2009, 24" iMac: What are normal operating temps?

    My iMac overheats and automatically shuts down frequently.  Sometimes, just watching a movie on Quicktime causes the CPU to top 80C and cause a shutdown.  Fans never run faster than 3500-3600rpm.
    Another thing that I noticed, is that the hiutil process runs twice a day using 100% of my processor, and always causes an overheat and shurtdown.
    Can anyone direct me to normal operating temps for this model iMac, or advise what may be worng?
    This sreenshot displays temps (Celcius) with only Safari running.  With uTorrent running (not actually feeding peers), and Quicktime, I get an overheat.
    TEMPS                                   FANS
    HD Macintosh   54                Optical drive   801rpm
    CPU                    55               Hard Drive      1599rpm
    CPU Heatsink   51               CPU Fan          3580rpm
    Ambient              39
    CPU Diode        72
    CPU Heatsink   60
    HD Bay               54
    Mem Controller  57
    Processor  2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory  4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Graphics  NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 256 MB
    Running Mountain Lion 10.8.

    Your temps are somewhat high, but still within acceptable levels.
    I would be more comfortable seeing many of the temps in the 40 degree Celsius range.
    Your CPU temps are on the high side and probably why your CPU fans are running high.
    When was the last time you clear out any of the dust, lint and fine dirt particles from your iMac.
    IF you've never done this, you need to completely unplug your iMac, find a heavy blanket or towel to lay your iMac, face down on the soft material. Using a special electronics vacuum, a portable, plug in vacuum or standardnhiuse vacuum with hose and attchments, using either the bare hose end or crvice tool, carefully and slowly vacuum all air intake and exhaust vents, openings and all of the ports to get rid of as much fine dust, dirt and lint as possible.
    Do not use a vacuum attachment with brushes. This could cause a problem with random static charges.
    Once this is done, re-setup your iMac, plug all your peripherals in and then do an SMC reset by plugging in your iMac to power. Wait 5 seconds, then power up your iMac.
    Then report back here with any changes in temps.

  • I have an early 2009 iMac need advice

    I am new to this forum. As I mentioned in subject I have an early 2009 iMac with 4 GB of Ram. I am up to date with my operating system, running Yosemite 10.10.1.
    My problem is that my computer is slow - very slow.  It takes forever for the computer to start up and once it up forever for programs to load. Mail is the best example taking it a minimum of 5 minutes to load and in the mean time nothing else will load. RecentlyI started running the disk utility and repairing permissions.  That helps a tiny bit. I also got CleanMyMac 2 and use it as well. In reading some of the forum I noticed someone suggested to run an EtreCheck report and post its report which I have done.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

    Pay attention to what rkaufmann87 is saying, because I agree.
    Chrome is very resource intensive.
    It is possible you are running other memory intensive apps.
    You have a lot of 3rd party additions loaded at boot time.  Do you really need all of them?  Even after you get rid of MacCleaner (as suggested by rkaufmann87).
    Do you really need the seagate and WD drive software?  The Mac is fairly good at accessing disks without 3rd party intervention.
    Any of the 3rd party additions listed by EtreCheck that you do not need, you should consider uninstalling.
    That fact that you have
        171.19 GB    Page-ins
    in just about 4 days, says you have about 0.5megabytes per second.  That is a huge load on your disk drive.
    Either cut back on the RAM intensive apps, or get more RAM.  At least 8GB, but if your Mac supports it, 16GB.  Crucial.com and MacSales.com (OWC) are well respected by the long term forum contributes.

  • Early 2009 iMac is running very slow

    My early 2009 is running very slow.  Takes about a minute to open Safari upon start-up....even opening up folders from finder take a long time.  Get the spinning beachball often.  Opening websites takes 30-40 seconds sometimes....they do open eventually.  I have run permissions repair from Disk Utility. Our iPad has no such problems.  iMac is hardwired, iPad is wireless.  I ran a report with "EtreCheck" but don't really understand what it is telling me.  I have about 100GB of space left out of 300GB.  Will attach "EtreCheck" report if I can figure out how!
    Thanks so much for any help!  Only recent changes I have made is upgrading iPhone and updating Charter Cable Security Suite.

    I am having the same issue. I am going through some of the things listed above. When doing the Go To Folder portion of the Adware tutorial none of those files existed on my iMac. I will do the rest but was wondering if you can see any clear problems from my EtreCheck report. Thanks!

  • IMac early 2009 with Yosemite running really really slow

    Hi,
    Would appreciate some expert advice on this. My iMac has been extremely slow and lag-gy the past few months. Noticeable after I upgraded to Yosemite (perhaps not the smartest thing I did last year).
    What should I do now? Upgrade RAM? Free up hard drive? Buy a new computer?
    thanks
    Kenneth

  • Want to clean and reinstall my early 2009 IMAC, but have Snow Leopard and no discs

    Have an Early 2009 IMAC.  My daughter (14, and an indiscriminate clicker of "OK" buttons on pop ups to get rid of them) has been using it for a year, and is it is now running very slowly, locking up, etc.  I am not particularly computer savvy, but would like to do a full clean of hard drive and reinstall.  Can't find the Snow leapard discs (My current OS X is 10.6.8), but want to go to yosemite to match my more current mac air.  Questions:
    1.  Yosemite haters, I know there are people who feel that this is a risk, but otherwise this thing is pretty much an attractive paper weight.
    2.  I could upgrade my RAM to 8 GB (only has 2 slots being an early 2009), is that necessary?  I would rather just upgrade and see how it goes.
    3.  I have backed up to time machine.
    4.  Yes, I bought a cheap PC (boo hiss) for my daughter, but at least she won't be touching this one anymore

    You need to get rid of MacKeeper (Zeobit).  Do not use their uninstaller, follow the instructions here ...
    http://applehelpwriter.com/2011/09/21/how-to-uninstall-mackeeper-malware/
    When that is done there does not appear to be a lot wrong if you correct the red ink entries.
    The 4Gb is sufficient for Yosemite though 6 or 8 Gb would be better.  You may find the download slow so be prepared.

  • Can I run Photoshop CS6 Extended on an early 2009 iMac?

    I'm running my early 2009 24" iMac on OS X Lion 10.7.5. It has a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 8 GB RAM, which all fit the requirements specified by Adobe. The display uses NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 512MB. Adobe lists an "OpenGL 2.0-capable system" as a requirement, but I can't tell if this iMac's GPU qualifies. Does anyone have experience running PS CS6 on a similarly configured machine?

    You can install directly - you can actually no longer download Mavericks anyway. Make sure you have sufficient RAM (at least 4GB) and hard drive space.
    You won't be able to run some older software like Office 2004 so check third-party applications before you upgrade. And make sure you have a backup, preferably using Time Machine.
