Unless you have an intel core 2 duo processor or greater, you can not run Lion
General requirements-Lion

  • My Imac 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo keeps powering off

    Hi all,
    I have a 20inch 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo (Imac 4.1), Over the last few weeks the Mac would just power off on the odd occasion when using Apeture, I put this down to being the just overworked for processing picture. This seems to have been getting worse and kept occurring more and more often. Light Internet browsing was fine..
    I decided after some time to replace the 2gb memory i had to see if that would fix the issue, this seemed to work for a few days then the same issues returned.
    I now seeing this issue occured just by opening Safari and decided to rebuild the Imac, I completed the Snowleopard install and all seemed ok for a day then it re-occurred again and seemed to be worse, I then removed the 2gb memory and just kept with the 512mb as when bought... Still it keeps powering off. I have moved to different power sockets and still see the same issues.
    Please note in order to power the Imac backup up I have to leave the power out for about 20-30 minutes, If i leave the power plugged in it never boots backup up.
    I now decided to even revert back to Lion OS, but it just powers off during the install...
    I thinking it sounds like a Power supply issue but would like confirmation before I take it to a repair shop..
    cheers
    Dan.

    As old as your iMac is, have you cleaned out the dust? Dust buildup can lead to over heating issues. Remove any and all things plugged into it including the power cord, Remove the RAM access grille. Vacuum all openings starting with the RAM access area (air intake). Vacuum all ports and plugs, DVD slot and the opening across the top of the rear of the body. Blow compressed air through all your openings and vacuum again to remove any dust you loosend. Reinstall the RAM grille. Plug in the keyboard and mouse if not blue tooth. Insert power cord...
    You are now in a perfect position to do a
    SMC RESET
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
    Shut down the computer.
    Unplug the computer's power cord and ALL peripherals.
    Wait 15 seconds.
    Attach the computers power cable.
    Wait another 5 seconds and press the power button to turn on the computer.
    It is the 5 second timing that initiates the reset.

  • I have a macbook pro with a 2.16 GHz Intel core Duo processor. Can I install the iOS 5 software

    I have a macbook pro with a 2.16 Ghz Intel core Duo processor. Can I install the iOS 5 software?

    iOS 5 is for iDevices, not OS X. Your iDevice would only require 10.5.8 or later. If you have a Mac with a Core Duo processor then you cannot install Lion but you can install Snow Leopard provided you have at least 1 GB of RAM installed.

  • Imac 2.4 ghz intel core duo identification 7,1,

    I want to upgrade my hard drive. what is the largest one I can get?

    Sidney,
    I have the same iMac 7,1 and have upgraded the internal drive to 3TB.
    Yes, you will need suction cups. You can source them from an auto parts store. The suction cups used to pull out dents from car panels will work to lift the glass from your iMac. This is the most daunting task, but in the end was simple enough with suction cups.
    You can search google for instructions on installation of the HD once you have lifted the glass.
    Good luck.
    Sam.

  • Can I upgrade to lion when i have a 2 GHz Intel core duo processor ( my computer is 6 years Old)  I have snow leopard now.

    Can I Upgrade my computer to Lion.  I have a 2 GHz Intel Core Duo Processor.  My computer is 6 years old.  Right now I have Snow Leopard.

    I have an old iMac about that age that I upgraded to Lion to test my 3rd party applications for compatibility. It upgraded quite simply. Please backup or save all your info/etc to an external CD/DVD/Hard drive, then try to run the installer. The Lion installer will analize your Mac for compatibility before it does anything, and will alert you to it's decisision. My 17" iMac is also 2 GHZ Intel core duo. Surprisingly for many of the things I use it for it works as good as my multi thousand dollar MacPro workstation. Best of luck. But Lion isn't compatible with many third party applications and drivers for printers; scanners; etc.

  • I have an 20 inch Imac 2,4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and I want to introduce Final Cut Pro X into the machine, can I change the Vieodcard ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB, into a more suitable videocard? Or is that not possible?

    I have an 20 inch Imac 2,4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and I want to introduce Final Cut Pro X into the machine. Can I change the present Videocard ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB, into a more suitable videocard? Or is that not possible? I have upgraded the memory to 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

    The GPU in a iMac is NOT upgradeable.
    You should check to see if your model of iMac meets the minimum specs to run FCPX.
    I believe that your GPU is NOT OpenCL capable, and hence not supported.
    Even if it works, you would probably get marginal performance.
    What you can do is download the trial version and see how (and if) it works.

  • Running Mavericks on an iMac 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5, I've been trying to install Adobe CS3. All components install except InDesign. Is this an installation disk problem or is it not compatible with the OS?

    Running Mavericks on an iMac 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5, I've been trying to install Adobe CS3 Design Premium. All components install except InDesign. Is this an installation disk problem, or is there a compatibility problem with the OS?

    I fear that you are trying to download OLDER Software on a newer Operating Sysytem Meaning that you need to Install the Latest Version of Adobe on the Newer Operating System for it to work Properly. Be sure to always check the minimum System Requirements.

  • IMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, running Lion 10.7.3, won't recognize external speaker jack, any suggestions?

    iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, running Lion 10.7.3, won't recognize external speaker jack, any suggestions?  Got a brand new iMac and purchased external speakers for same.  Hooked them into external speaker jack and the computer does not recognize the external speaker jack.  I then plugged them into the external head phone jack and the computer recognized the head phone jack.  How can I get the computer to recognize the speaker jack?

    Thanks "a brody," my mistake, I was mistaking the "audio in" jack for a speaker output jack.  I have some Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers with a built in amplifier that I am using and they sound beautiful.  I do have them plugged into the correct jack, but was thinking there was a speaker out put and headphone out put.
    Thanks again for correcting me, I feel much better now that I know my brand new iMac isn't defective, lol.
