Will my iMac run without nvidia card?
iMac "Core 2 Duo" 3.06 24-Inch (Early 2008)
Will my iMac display anything if I disconnect the NVidia graphics card?
No prior symptoms, screen goes crazy after only 20 mins use. Restart mac, pink horizontal squiggles cover grey/white boot screen. Apple logo appears and wheel spins for awhile before freezing - every time.
After some internet searching try hardware test 6+ times, no result.
Try booting to safe mode, loading bar shows and makes it to about 30% before freezing.
Reset pram, lines are now pink vertical lines but otherwise it is the same.
Removed front bezel from case, all 4 LED's light and stay lit even after it freezes.
Internet searching shows removing a graphics file may get this usable so I can save my data but I can't get it to boot far enough to find the file.
I was in best buy today looking at replacements and Apple sells iMacs with and without independent graphics cards. So I'm wondering, can I get mine usable with the NVidia card unplugged? Because I'm looking at it with the LCD removed, and my soidey sense is going off...
Thank you in advance!
