I am trying to install Mac OS X Lion I just downloaded. At the step where it asks you to select a disk to install, I got this message:"This disk is not formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Use Disk Utility to enable journaling or reformat the disk."What does this mean? Please help me through the steps to complete my installation of this software.
On a Mac OS X 10.4.11. laptop. ISP provider is Comcast. Have successfully been sending and receiving emails at home no problem using Entourage for two years. Have now taken laptop to visit away from home and clicked into the host's house wifi system - AT&T u-vers.
Entourage will now receive but not send emails. Receive 3259 error message about timing out. However, can send fine by going to Comcast's site, therefore Comcast insists this is not their problem but an Entourage problem, probably with settings.
Just bought a new MacMini(my first Apple PC) and when I open mail I get the brief details of mail received but when I click on the message to read the details I get a "loading" sign but the message is not displayed. I have 2 different mail accounts.
if I like to upgrade to Lion - do I really have to buy Leopard as well as Lion - only to install Lion?I bought Leopard already and thought I could upgrade easily and free to Lion. Actually I have installed Leopard 10.6.8 and now it seams that I have to buy Lion to be able to upgrade.
Currently I have an iMac 10.5.8 with an Intel Core 2 Duo and 2Go Ram. Since January I didn't had much system updates because my software is apparently too old ... And I am kind of paranoid about the Trojans that I might have because I use the old version plus Safari is getting blocked very often. So I decided to by first Snow Leopard and then Lion. The thing is that I live in Norway & I will have to use the Norwegian apple store to by those programs but my OS X is in French. So I was wondering if I will be able to choose my language or the whole system will be automatically in Norwegian? The second question is to know if it is difficult to upgrade? I am a Mac user because I don't have any clues about the computers and Mac is always working. I read some complaints from people who after installing Snow Leopard couldn't use properly their printers or other apps... Is there is something I (completely ignorant person) should be aware of before doing the upgrade? ¬†
I received the Snow Leopard upgrade disc from Apple.¬† The instructions read to simply upgrade to SL version 10.6.8 after running the installation disc, and then to purchase the Lion upgrade from the Mac App.¬† However, this SL version seems to be 10.5.8, and none of the 10.6.8 or lower updates will work.¬† I found a 10.6.1, but that won't install either.¬† They all say that I need OS 10.6 and I can't find it. I have a 2009 iMac with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
Info: iMac (20-inch Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Is it possible for me to put a 1g memory stick in my PowerBook 12inch 867mhz? The reason why I'm asking this, is because when you check the apple store, the maximum memory is 512mb. But if you check elsewhere, you can buy the 1g stick. Some places says that the computer will recognize only 512mb, even if you put the 1g.
I have a Time Machine 1.2 which worked perfectly on my old iMac OSX.¬† A few months ago I purchased a new iMac which came with Snow Leopard, and it worked well.¬† But when Apple came to upgrade me to Lion, the Time Machine no longer works.¬†¬† Is it not compatible with Lion??¬†
At one stage I was told there was no room on the disk.¬† I then tried to delete most of the previous backups, leaving only a handful of backups - but still no luck.¬† I think I might have messed up things by then trying to edit the "do not back up" list. I tried to exclude some programmes applications , and now I am told there are no disks available to be backed up.
It is not very clear on the "options" screen, what one should do. What does the + and - indicate, and is it necessary to remove any files at all if I want a simple regular backup procedure on my home computer.
Lastly - if I wanted to uninstall and reinstall the Time Machine - is there a procedure?? I can't find one.
I am running the 27" iMac with dual hard drives and have recently upgraded to Lion. Two things are happening.
1. On cold start / boot up, my system has no sound. And by no sound I mean - no sound.† When I go to the Sound option in System Preferences, everything is greyed out and I can not adjust or access any of the controls. The only solution has been to immediately restart my computer. After restart, everything is fine.
2. On cold start / boot up, sometimes I receive a pop up telling me that TestGen is not installed properly and to please re-start. Of course, since I have no sound I'm automatically doing that.
Lastly, and I'm not adding this to the list because there is already a thread about it . . but I will mention it I am getting error messages trying to play certain videos "This video requires Quicktime which is not supported by this version of iTunes."The workaround is that you apparently have to delete the video from your Library -- DO NOT DELETE FILE FROM HARD DRIVE -- and re-add to your Library.
I am looking into upgrading my PBG4 1.33 to a NEW (updated) white macbook.
My question is regarding upgrading the memory & harddrive. iFixit makes the changeout of these items look incredibly easy. Is it? (i am by no means a fix-my-own-computer person, but I did recently replace memory and harddrive in my PBG4, and that was much more involved than what it looks like this process would be) I can get a 320G 7200 HD on ebay for under $60! Add in the RAM from ebay, and you are looking at upgrading the $999 macbook for under $100 - Apple charges nearly $300 for these upgrades, and it is a 5200 HD!
Am I missing something? Can I really put the 7200 HD in the new macbook? Is it really as easy to replace as it looks?
I upgraded my system to Safari 5 from the file. I was not connected to the Internet at this point but decided to check the new browser, and was surprised to see how fast Safari occupied all available memory. The system was very irresponsive. Closing Safari solved the problem. This problem can easily be repeated. Can somebody confirm this? I have SL on MBP.
I am not a mac user (please forgive me) but I have a friend who has a Mac and cannot print all of a sudden. From what I understand it is an I-Mac and the OS is OSX.
All of a sudden (after a few years without trouble) she is getting an out of memory message when she sends a job to the printer. Further, no jobs show up in the printer dialogue window when it is sent from the computer. The print jobs are not large, just simple emails. Even when she creates a blank message with the word test in the body it still wont print.
The printer is an HP D4160.
It is not sending any messages re: the status of the cartridges. The computer is communicating with the printer as it will print a test page when commanded to from the computer so this is truly baffling.
I brought a 13" Macbook air late 2013 model in December last year. It has 4GB Ram and a 120GB Storage.I have a 160GB portable hard-drive which I store all my files on (Music, pictures etc) so this leads me to this question.¬†Why do I keep getting the error message "Run out of application memory".That message pops up when I use Chrome (Only program running!!!!!!!!!! other than Finder) even if I have one page open??¬†
It's also popped up before when no programs are running and causes the MacBook to freeze up resulting in me having to turn it off via the power button.¬†I have run Disk utility and there appears to be no issues?¬†I Googled the error message and all it brought was up people having problems with the calendar application which I do not use nor is it running?¬†
Tried to scan Mac this morning: got message "unknown errors received from scanners".†So tried McAfee's Virtual Technician which reported '126.96.36.199 - platform not supported' against Internet Security, Application Protection, Desktop Firewall and Antimalware.
