iMac regularly freezing with hardware error 4MOT/2/40000004:HDD-1343
This means the hard drive is failing. Kappy has the solution.
Boot from your original OS X Installer Disc One that came with your computer. After the chime press and hold down the “D” key until the diagnostic screen appears. Run the extended tests for a minimum of two or three hours. If any error messages appear note them down as you will need to report them to the service tech when you take the computer in for repair.
