    its been making a chirping noise the past week or so and it keeps freezing. to the point i cant do anything. it just freezes or like i can click with my mouse the right button to shut it down. but it will be on the desktop and the drag box will be there n wont go away.

    i went n got an external HD to back it up then im gonna clean install it

    it's probably not your imac, but your imac's hard drive that is on its way out.

    ya - to back everything up. if it does quit you are going to have to buy a new internal hdd for it. better that than dropping the cash on a whole new comp.
