MacBook :: NO White Dots Below Running Programs

Jun 8, 2012

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

PowerPC :: Burning - Running Several Programs

Nov 5, 2006

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.

OS X :: Java Programs No Longer Running After Downgrade?

Jun 15, 2010

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.

Software :: IMac Freezing When Running Few Programs?

Aug 27, 2009

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.

ITunes :: Library Not Usable After Running Utility Programs

Dec 19, 2010

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.

OS X :: Finding Programs Running In Activity Monitor. Speeding Up Leopard?

Mar 19, 2010

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).

Laptops :: Occasional Video Editing - Can Handle Running At Least 5 Of Adobe Programs At Same Time?

Feb 3, 2010

I have done alot of research. I have never owned a mac. I haven't used on since I graduated from school 5-6 years ago for graphics. I have no desire if I do get one to boot xp on it I find the mac os to look more clean(yeah if that makes since) My current laptop is a sony vaio. I mean I know its not strong enough to handle the adobe programs, I can barely run flash cs4 and photoshop cs4 at the same time. My specs on my current sony vaio which I got like 2 and a half years ago is 0.99 gigs of ram/1.60 ghz/ginuwine intel (r) cpu. I know its nothing compared to today and with more work from clients I need something that can handle running at least 5 of the adobe programs at the same time with the internet browser opened and maybe a mp3 player like jet audio playing some tunes to get some serious work done occasional video editing but nothing too crazy..

PowerPC :: G4 Has White Line Running Through Screen?

Jul 13, 2008

My partner's PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67Ghz) which, of course, ended it's Applecare on June 28th, developed a glitch on the screen today: a white line that is 1 pixel wide and runs the length of the screen. It just started out of the blue - no dropping of computer, no power surge, no external reason. One minute it was fine the next it had this line.

Any body ever encounter a problem like this? And if so, how did you get rid of it (either repairing it via a technician or by oneself) and how much did it cost?

I'm betting it's a sign that it's time to get a new computer.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does Display Keep Flickering With Dots

Jun 4, 2014

It used to stay like that until either I'd move my mouse over the area, scroll the page up or down, or refresh. It only seemed to happen in browsers, not in Finder or anything. It's the worst when watching videos on YouTube or any kind of flash video. But works fine on Netflix. I say "used to" because the above screenshots are from July 2013. I sent my laptop away to Apple but they were "unable to reproduce the problem." I figure they just left the laptop open and waited. You have to use it like it's YOUR laptop and then it will happen. Anyways, now it's happening more often. Except it's just a flicker. Over and over again. I could record video of it, if necessary. 

So, I'm running 10.9.3. I'm not sure what other information is needed. But my computer is up to date. I don't have warranty. I just want to know what is causing my computer to do this.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

MacBook :: Finding About Green Dots On My Background?

Sep 3, 2010

I have this issue since a year and never had seen it around on mac forums. So when I play a movie or even grabbing a window around the screen these tiny green-blue dots appear and disappear randomly, sometimes they line up vertically.

The smaller is the movie size playing in quicktime (even in youtube) the bigger are the dots. The good thing is I see them while working with pictures in photoshop, but they don't affect the picture quality when I save them in jpg or other formats.

MacBook Pro :: Gray Dots On LCD Screen - Rapidly Increasing

Dec 2, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro 2.2 Santa Rosa Rev. D model. Recently I have discovered gray dots appearing along the top of my screen.

A few at first, but masses growing are growing rapidly. In the past 3 weeks the problem has started to spread to both my right and left edges as well. Under different viewing angles the dots sort of dissapear. The dots are not uniform in size or pattern.

I have a slight feeling that this has to do with my NVIDIA 8600GT graphic card.

I read tonight that that specific card was reported faulty and thousands have had problems and have had to get their logic boards replaced.

I also read that Apple extended their warranty for this specific reason.

Anyways, the dots are increasing and it's worrying me as I am not sure if this will be covered or not.

MacBook :: Unable To Open Programs - Programs Are Not Displaying

Mar 25, 2010

I have a question about using my new samsung tv as a monitor for my macbook. I have all the cables and such and my TV reads the computer. It actually shows the desktop background, mouse, and the toolbar on the tv...
BUT....when i try and open a program such as safari or itunes it does not display the program on the monitor but rather on my macbook screen. It shows the program open on the tv monitor but it shoots off the screen and then opens on the macbook screen.

Also the mouse disappears from the tv monitor screen on the left side only, and when it does it becomes visible back on the macbook screen! Any tips or suggestions on how to get the programs to show up on the monitor instead of the macbook screen?
