I have a Macbook, 2Ghz Intel Core 2, 2 GB Ram, running OS 10.7.3. Safari 5.1.3, Firefox 12.0, Flash 11.2.†Flash based videos etc. aren't working. I'll get a spinning beach ball, then "plug in failure". This happens on everything from the Yahoo homepage, to YouTube videos.†I've tried logging in as a different Admin user, reinstalled Flash / OS. No change.
What I used to love about my Powerbook G4 is that it's pretty much silent, unless I happen to be burning something, or running several programs at once. However, this appears to be a thing of the past, as I've begun to notice that the fan is now permanently whizzing, and while it's not loud, it's anything but silent. This happens constantly, while I'm running minimal programs, and while my computer is sitting on my desk, not on any soft surfaces.
I have a MacBook, using iMac atm but my MacBook is running 50-60% system, 0.5-1.5 user, and i do not know why its using so much of my CPU... No programs are running except Activity Monitor... So I'm not sure whats going on, i have all the latest Airport, firmware and all that...
How do you use Windows based keyboards (like...the typing keyboard, not musical) if they have Mac compatibility. Take the Logitech Wave for example. It has both Windows and Mac compatibility- But it has a Control/Windows/Alt button, instead of Control/Option/Command buttons. Do they come with Command/Option keys, or do you just get really mad when you look at your keyboard (I know I would)?
I just switched from a Windows based system to a Mac Pro. How do I get Mac to recognize devices? I have plugged in several external hard drives to download photos, a card reader, and a printer. How do I install these devices? How do I install a printer? They obviously are not "plug and play". What am I doing wrong?
even when i dont have any programs actually running i get the stupid coloured spinning circle and i can hear the computer thinking like ive got 20 programs running at the same time , kind of like the windows CPU usage stuck on 100% problem.
The other day I had an issue with Mac OS, not sure what, but long story short I reinstalled/downgraded to Leopard. I have since installed all the Software Updates and such, but have not upgraded to Snow Leopard. (I'd had alot of issues with it, figured I'd stay downgraded for awhile)
In any case, I was able to download and run Java files no problem on Snow Leopard, but no longer can. It's not a ONE Java file problem.
I have a iMac(it is an older one but I forget when I bought it) it has OS X 10.4.11, and 1 GB ram. I have 30 GB of free HD space.
Normally, I run Aol Desktop, Firefox, iTunes and sometimes Microsoft Word. But recently while browsing the internet the Mac will stop working. The music will continue to play and the mouse will still move but everything else stops working. The only way I have been able to fix it is to hold the power button for a couple of seconds.
Also, while trying to zero out my free space the available HD space on my computer went to 0 and the Disk Utility said it would take something like 1 million hours to finish so I skipped that step and when it finished my memory was restored.
Before yesterday, when I opened a program, such as Safari on my mac the white dot would appear below it. When I turned on my computer this morning the white dot did not appear under any program i opened. I have safari and itunes open now and neither have the white dot below them. Finder does have the white dot below it, but none of the others do. Its not like it needs to be fixed, but I just find it anoying because im used to the dot being there

I tried to open iPages after upgrading to Mavericks. I was given a report that the current software could not be opened and to contact the developer. I have tried to download the new version from App Store. It won't do that since I have up to date software according to their record of purchase. I have now deleted and emptied the trash containing these old programs. Now I still can't download new versions.
First time Mac owner here! Purchased an iMac last week and love it. Have been a Windows guy all my life until now. Having trouble adding my Windows networked printer. So I downloaded the print driver from here and ran the installer. Then I connected to the networked printer I have and selected a driver from the drop down box, not sure if its the one that was installed or not. Tried printing a test page, no such luck.
I am running Windows XP on my desktop. I have been using Itunes for years and it has worked fine till about two weeks ago. I had been having issues with my computer being very slow so I began using several freeware programs to clean up my computer. I used Repair Doctor, AVG PC Analyzer, PC Pitstop, Glary Utilities, and Advanced System Care. I discovered that ITunes was no longer usable after using AVG PC Analyzer. I have gone back and reversed all the changes that I made using PC Analyzer and have also used Windows System Restore to go back to a time previous to most of the clean up activities. I have uninstalled ITunes several times and then reinstalled using various combination of installing ITunes and QuickTime. QuickTime is working fine, but ITunes is not working. I click on the ITunes icon and nothing happens.
I have just purchased a new MacBook pro 2ghz 15". Since first using it I thought it was a little slow and now it quits programs every day I use it saying "iphoto has quit unexpectedly" etc and its the same for safari, email and garageband.
I have had my 27" Imac for about 2 years now and I am starting to have problems with it running slow. Iphoto and itunes and sometimes safari stop responding and then crash, I then get a problem report which has pages of information, what can I do? do I need to reload the OS?
My computer Mac Pro is getting slow.¬† The wheel runs and runs.¬† I took it in to Apple at one time and they coded a bunch of files that were running in the background, thus slowing the computer.¬† How do I do this myself?
I'm going to buy macbook next week; I hear that windows based games do not work in mac, is that true? and if is true than what should i do to instal and play these games? last i do not want to instal windows in my mac book;
I'm trying to turn an old Windows machine into a media server and file server, but not sure which Windows apps are Mac compatible. This is sort of hit and miss to post here, as it mainly involves looking for Windows applications, but the mac would be using them so it's sort of suitable.
I have setup a DLNA server for PS3 already which is working correctly. I've setup a UPNP server called Air Video for use with media for the iPhone and iPad.
I tried to setup an FTP server for use with files from both machines but the mac would not connect to it. It kept saying the login was wrong but it was right. I also setup a VNC server which the iphone using iTeleport could connect to but the Mac just would not connect.
So the main question is: Is there a FTP and VNC server for Windows which works 100% with a Mac as the client? After these two are working the server is completed.
My Mac is noticeably slower so I'm looking to clean it up before I try a clean install on the hard drive. I found a Kodak printer program and an HP printer program both of which I deleted from applications, but both of which are chewing up 500MB of process memory, and when I force a quit they just pop open again a second later.Question:
Where are these programs hididng? How do I kill them?
Any other tricks to speed my Mac up (I verified permissions already).
I recently switched to Macs and purchased a Macbook Pro(which I love!). I'm still getting used to the OS, but I ran into a problem.
I was using a Windows computer before for my iPod (classic, not sure if that matters). I would like to transfer the songs I have from my windows iPod, onto my new Mac, but I'm not sure if that's possible(I think I may have read on Apple's website you can't switch from Mac to Windows but I'm not sure, but thats besides the point).
I don't really want to download a program to move my songs from the iPod onto the Mac.
