MacBook Pro :: Running Slow And Programs Quit Unexpectedly
Feb 9, 2012
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.
So recently, whenever I use my MacBook Pro and I open a program (such as iTunes) or even the internet browser (Safari), the program will just close as soon as I open it or while I'm using it. And sometimes it takes forever to just re-open.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I get the message - hl2_osx has unexpectedly quit - everytime I try an launch CS source, DoD source or any other Half Life based game on Steam. I have read similar questions, but none are pertaining to a gaming issue. These games used to load fine until recently.
Ive had my macbook pro since August and I have had problems with it in the past. This time however (this has been happening for almost a week) my computer has been very slow and unresponsive. Programs quit due to "errors" and i have to force quit everything. Safari doesnt work either. I have already backed up any files i need and would just like to try and fix this without ANOTHER trip to the apple store.
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.
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?
Have Word 2004. Don't laugh; it's been working. When got new MBP, Office worked. (Well, can't recall if PPT ever worked with it.)Excel and Word definitely did work. Two weeks ago, Excel started working sporadically, then not at all.Right now(!!), Word suddenly stopped working. "Word quit unexpectedly" and "Excel quit unexpectedly."
I just got the screen that says you need to hold down the power key and restart your computer. Anyone know why? I'm running tiger. I had about 12% battery left and I am "borrowing" my neighbors internet because mine is down right now (I'm a broke college student). I had about 1-3 bars of internet but those go in and out and fluctuate often. I've noticed my computer seems to lag because of that, I've had a lot more applications crashing.
Every time I try to unzip a file using Archive Utility, it says "Archive Utility Quit Unexpectedly". No, relaunching it does not do anything. I have restarted my computer to no prevail and several things I've tried on the internet do not work. Currently using a Macbook Pro, with OSX 10.9.3.
Info: MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)
I have tried to install silverlight several times and keep getting the error that the installer quit unexpectedly. I am running Mac OS X 10.6.8. I could not find a solution for this anywhere. I tried to also access the plug-in on the HD and it never opened up.
I did a software update a few days ago - it required me to do a Safari update. Since then I am unable to use safari. When I open Safari, it gives me a msg saying that Safari quit unexpectedly and will send report automatically to Apple. I have tried many things on the web. Deleted the application, and reinstalled. I tried from the original app installation DVD. I have also cleared the cache folder under library.
I keep getting "problem reports" when trying to open applications that have worked fine for years. Microsoft Word, Photopshop, Illustrator an Avery CD Sticker maker all give me the problem report window with the yellow trianlge and exclmation point when I try to open them and say: "____ has quit unexpectedly. Click reopen to open the application again. This report will be sent to Apple automatically." Clicking reopen offers the same thing again, and again, and again.It started yesterday with Photoshop and Illustrator, so I took them off my computer and tried to reinstall them. Now I get "Install Photoshop has quit unexpectedly. etc.." I ran the disc utility and it said my hard drive was OK.
im having issues with my internet is randomly crashes saying safari quit unexpectedly while using the iLeadDVDCopy.so plug-in how do i resolve this issue i've updated the software but still it keeps happening
Safari has frozen after I tried to quit it, I can't open or close any programs, force quit, use shortcuts or use any open programs as the safari bar still appears at the top of the screen, I would force shut down but I've got an after effects project open.
I am mac newbie and I am scared because in the past 2 months i've had two kernel panics - not really sure what that means - basically I've had to force restart my computer twice because Mac OS X quit unexpectedly.
My first kernel panic was on June 26, 2009 and my second kernel panic was on August 22, 2009.
Could this have contributed to the problem? when 10.5.7 came out I combo updated by computer but after a few days of getting pissed off at the lousy airport connectivity I erased and installed back to OS X version that came with my macbook when i bought (i think it was 10.5.2) and then i gradually combo updated my mac to 10.5.5 which I am still using.
A few weeks back I did a hardware test on my macbook because when i was using front row to watch a movie my mac's screen blinked and the sleep light came on for a few seconds and then like 10 minutes later it blinked again so i did a hardware test using the install CDs and there were no problems.
I have this MBP 13'' Mac OS X 10.7.5 running a 2.4GHz i5, 4GB RAMs and 500GB storage.The problem started yesterday when I was typing on Word and I copy pasted something from the net (chrome browser) then it froze.I waited for around 5minutes and still frozen with the spinning wheel, then I decided to turn it off by pressing power for 10 seconds restarted my
MBP then now it running so slow on start-up and apps are very slow to open like around 5 minutes. Every action that I try to do like clicking on the apple in the upper left it freezes showing a spinning wheel and it will take time to show the drop down options. I checked disk utility and it said that HD is ok, done verify/permission verify and repair.
I checked the activity monitor noting the ram/CPU usage and its normal it even tells that 2GB of ram is not use.It shows not responding in the activity monitor if you open an app for around 5mins then it opens or it will crash.I already done the 2 kinds of reset and did not work.BUT it opens normally in Safe mode.
PowerMac G5 OS 10.5 Leopard - I am getting this error message. If I start up from Install Disk and try to Reinstall the OS, it throws an error message stating "Cannot verify Disk." If I start up from Install Disk, it goes directly to OS Installation without utility options. If I DO NOT Start up from Install Disk, little is recognized, including Main Menu Bar at top. If I insert Install Disk, it does not recognize a disk was inserted to work off. This all happened when: I chose to do a clean restore on the HD to sell the PowerMac. During the process, I had to stop it and I followed directions. Quit Install and select disk to restart from. I chose my HD and proceeded.
I have had a Macbook for about 2 months, and the 1st 2 months all the applications (including system preferences) has worked without a problem. Just about a week ago, iwent to open system preferences. That worked fine. But, when i went to click on "Desktop & Screen Saver" the application froze for a minute, then automatically quit! A screen poped up saying "The application system preferences quit unexpectedly", and gave the the option of closing it, reporting it, or reopening it. I tried to reopen it, but that didn't do anything (the same thing happened). So, i tried to restart my laptop, and when it had finished restarting, i went to do the same thing as before (open desktop and screen saver) and it "quit unexpectedly" again, and the same screen poped up. I still cant get it to open, and it has already been a week.
