MacBook Pro :: Superdrive Stopped Working - Fine Before Installing Lion

Mar 31, 2012

I have a 2 year old MacBook Pro and the superdrive has stopped working, it won't take discs in as if there is one already inside but iTunes or the dvd player doesn't recognise that there is a disc inside and if there is it can't be ejected, I have tried shutting down and restarting while holding down the trackpad, as recommended on some forums but that has done nothing. It might be a huge coincidence but the drive was working fine before I installed lion?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: FaceTime Stopped Working After Installing AJA Drivers

Jun 26, 2012

how to get Facetime working again in Lion 10.7.40.  I installed some AJA LHi video card drivers and now my webcam/Facetime/Skype won't load.  The programs either crashes during load or, in the case of Skype, when I try to select the webcam in Preferences.  I have uninstalled the AJA drivers but it doesn't change anything.  I can create another user on the same system and Facetime works fine.  I've tried contact AJA support but have heard nothing back in the last 48 hours. One thing of interest is that PhotoBooth works fine with the Logitech webcam.

IBook :: G4 Stopped Working Right After Installing New Ram

Sep 10, 2014

We have a macbook pro but I decided to resurrect my ancient g4 last week so that my kids could play videos and watch youtube.  After doing some modifying with flash to get it to play on youtube it worked great.  Then I installed 1mb of ram and all **** broke loose.  After about 20 minutes everything, and I mean everything went dead.  I  installed the old 512 chip and reset the cpu and well, it started but things are wonky now.  It's running much slower,  won't run youtube videos smoothly ( wouldn't really call it playing as much as slideshowing) or play the games the kids had just played last week.

Software :: Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Stopped Working / Itunes Stopped Working

May 13, 2009

I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...

Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...

MacBook Pro :: Itunes Not Working Fine - IR Sensors Stops Working

Nov 14, 2009

I've noticed that occasionally my IR sensor stops working, and no longer responds to changing the volume, skipping the track in iTunes, etc. It can be resolved by going into Security prefs, disabling and re-enabling the IR sensor. This is annoying, however, and I'm wondering if it's a known issue that might be fixed.

I noticed that when you disable and re-enable the IR sensor, the last few remote button pushes you made while it was broken come through in a burst.

MacBook Air :: Internet Not Working On Late 09 - Working Fine On All Other Devices

Apr 25, 2012

My Late 09 MacBook Air has been working a treat, not a spot of bother. All of a sudden, about 5 minutes ago, I've gone to go online to download some research papers (I'm *trying* to write an essay) and it won't load anything. Not even my Twitter app. It is connected to the right network, which is working absolutely fine on every other device in the house (windows computers, iphone etc). I've turned it off and on twice, the way that us clueless folk do.. now I don't know what to do.

MacBook Air :: Installing XP Without Superdrive?

Jun 16, 2008

I've done searches here on this topic, and it seems like everyone gave in and picked up the Superdrive.

I've made a partition using bootcamp assistant, and I have an .iso of the legal disk. I used to install a VMware image, but I plan to replace it with the bootcamp image once I get that done; haven't even activated windows.

I have installed rEFIt; have the .iso and the files copied from the iso into the BOOTCAMP partition; but when it tries to boot to there, it complains about not being a system disk, or some such. One poster noted having two entries in rEFIt, and the useful one had something about a boot/cdboot.efi option, but I don't see that option in rEFIt anywhere.

Has anyone else made progress on this?

Also, it'd be great if one of these things could be made sticky, given the hassle it seems to be, and the several threads that have cropped up with questions, and not much in the way of answers.

MacBook :: Trackpad Firmware Doesn't Update And Now Stopped Working (Lion & 13 Unibody Late 2008)

Jun 21, 2012

I bought an oldish MacBook 13' Unibody (late 2008) and when I got it one of the first things I did was to install Mac OSX Lion. 

Everything was working fine, until I applied an update that made the trackpad stop working (it only accepts clicks, no touch is recognized). 

This is the "Trackpad Firmware Update" from the automatic updates. 

When starting this firmware update it appears a window with a status message, cancel and Update buttons. After clicking the update button, it starts installing, appears to complete, status changes to "Finishing...", and Update button comes back active at some point.  

After that I have tried (unsuccessfully):downloading and installing the update directly from Apple Support [URL] thing, but using the 'root' accountleaving the computer on overnight to see if actually "finished" the processReset PRAM PVRAM - [URL] - [URL] palm pressing over 30 seconds on the trackpad (read this on another thread...?)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Printing From Outlook 2011 Stopped Working

Mar 21, 2012

I am working with a friend who uses Microsoft Office 2011 on an iMac running 10.7.2. He is suddenly unable to print from Outlook. Choosing Print... from the File menu or clicking a print button produces no result at all - the normal print dialogue box does not appear. Previously he could print without a problem. He has no problem printing from Word in Office 2011.

We have updated Office to 14.1.4 through Microsoft Update. We have worked through the advice in the Microsoft support document 2409305 - backing up Outlook identities, and removing Oulook Preferences as advised there. The error remains. We then created a new identity and found we could print from that. So we followed the Microsoft advice to rebuild the Outlook identity database. We still cannot print from Outlook.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Microsoft Programs Stopped Working?

Dec 11, 2014

OS X 10.8.5 

All of the microsoft programs (Skype, word, excel, update utility, even error reporting, all) I regularly run on my macbook pro have stopped working.  If I try to open an application or document the icon bounces on the dock, the graphic flashes on the screen (just like normal), then the crash report comes up.  The crash report stays for a moment then the crash report for the crash report (Microsoft Error Reporting has quit unexpectedly) pops up. 

I feel like this started after the latest software update from a few days ago but I can't be entirely certain of that.  I don't know how to revert previous to the update to check if that is the problem.

I have restarted the computer.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the programs.  I have updated the programs, as well as OS X.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: External Monitor Suddenly Stopped Working At 2440x1440

Apr 23, 2012

I have a 27" iMac and I'm using Samsung SyncMaster SA850 as a second monitor (connected via a display Port cable with a mini Display Port adapter). Everything worked fine until yesterday - the Samsung screen turned black and now it only works with max resolution 1280 x 1024 (native is 2440x1440). I think I upgraded Lion 10.7.2 to 10.7.3 (I don't remember for sure though). When I connect the monitor to an iMac with 10.7.2 everything works fine. And another iMac with 10.7.3 has the same problem as me.
