MacBook Pro :: System Preference - Entire Bar Just Disappear

Mar 4, 2010

When I go to system prefs. and go into any submenu, the max/min/close buttons, as well as the search box, heck that entire bar just disappear. Its only when I hover over them do the individual items pop back into display, but the whole bar just doesn't restore itself. Like imagine the top bar on firefox, except its a white strip and the 3 buttons are rectangular blobs sticking out against the white. If that makes sense.

Mac Pro :: Cursor And Windows Disappear In Upper Right Corner Of Display

Sep 3, 2014

I'm using a Mac Pro desktop running OX 10.5.8  I noticed fairly recently that I have a blank area off of the upper right of the screen where safari windows will ocassionally disappear to.  If I move my cursor over to this area it will disappear of the screen.  However on all of the other sides/corners of the display, the cursor will remain on the screen.What is the cause of the blank area off the screen and how do I get rid of it?

OS X :: Floating Desktop - Entire Screen Moves With Cursor

Feb 21, 2009

My adorable cat Ari, decided to sit on the keyboard of my ibook and now I have what I can only describe as a "floating desktop"--the entire screen floats or moves with every move of the cursor. Cursor to the right, page moves left, cursor up, page down. While his entire bottom was on about half of the keyboard, he seemed to be mostly on the volume key, because I could hear the blip, blip, sound that key makes.

MacBook Pro :: Page Has Loaded The Cursor Turns To A Multi-coloured Ball?

Jul 1, 2009

I recently made the switch to Mac and I'm very pleased so far with my purchase. The little problem I have is lately while surfing the net, sometimes after the page has loaded the cursor turns to a multi-coloured ball and I can't do anything until it's stopped. Is this the norm? as I'm sure it never happened in the first few weeks of ownership.

OS X :: Cursor Moving And Clicking On Its Own?

Jan 25, 2010

well this problem recently developed probably within the last three months. Occasionally, while using my macbook pro my cursor will begin to make slight movements on its own. However, sometimes the movements are larger and can involve the cursor clicking and remaining 'clicked' on something.

Attached to my macbook is a wireless logitech keyboard, and a Razer Copperhead mouse. Prior to the copperhead I had a logitech mx518 but the problem still remained. I do not know what causes my cursor to move on its own and the issue does seem to occur when the mouse is unplugged as well. There is no dust or particles interfering with the optical sensor on the mouse and I am using a standard, clean, cloth pad. I just want to know what to do to correct this issue.

Mac Pro :: Moving Cursor Across Dual Displays

Jun 6, 2012

On my left I have a new HP 2311 23" monitor (maximum dpi 1600x900). On my right I have an old 23" Apple HD Cinema Display (max resolution 1920x1200). Both have a 16:9 aspect ratio. I just added the HP about a month ago, and this is the first I've had dual I'm still learning. I've noticed the following: If the cursor is on my Cinema Display and I move it left toward the HP, at about the top 1/4 of the screen the cursor won't cross comes to the edge of the screen and stops. I have to move the cursor more toward the middle to cross over. When I move the cursor down toward the middle of the Cinema Display, it crosses over but appears a the top of the HP.

A similar thing happens moving from the HP to the Cinema Display, except at the bottom of the screen. The cursor won't cross for about the bottom 1/4 of the HP, and when I move the cursor up so it will cross, it appears at the bottom of the Cinema Display. It's almost like these screens are out of alignment....the HP sitting a few inches higher than the Cinema Display. My eyes aren't what they used to be, so the HP is set to 1344x756 and the Cinema Display is set to 1344x756 to make everything larger. However, I tried many variations of the resolution on both screens to see if that changed didn't.

Applications :: Moving Cursor To Button Automatically?

Mar 10, 2010

I currently have Steermouse installed but I only use it for this 'snap to' function - I only use the track pad. Are there any other apps (pref free) that provide this function? I am experiencing loss of cursor movement after hibernation and always have to restart the machine. I am going to un-install Steermouse pretty soon and then see if the problem still occurs. In the meantime if there are any alternatives it would be good to know. I am surprised its not a built in standard pref!

IMac PPC :: Why Mouse Won't Work - Cursor Is Not Moving?

Apr 23, 2012

I just got a used iMac (running 10.5.8) with the metal keyboard and mouse. I unpacked the box, plugged in the computer, hooked up the keyboard and mouse.The computer screen came up. I can move around a little via the keyboard's arrow keys but the cursor will not move via the mouse. I got it to move a little by swiping my thumb across the back but that is it. I switched my older, working, keyboard and mouse to the newer machine and it didn't work there. I switched the newer metal keyboard and mouse my older iMac and they worked just fine. What could be going on with the new (but used) computer? I have tried every port for the mouse, keyboard as well as every back port but nothing moves the cursor.

Mac Mini :: Cursor/arrow Keys Not Moving?

Jun 24, 2012

I am having problems with my cursor on my macbook. Since a recent software  update I've not been able to move the cursor in any app. The  only way it moves is when I type. I use the arrow-keys to quickly move around menus but that is impossible. I have looked at all the settings I can think of looking at, but nothing makes any difference. Helen BTW the OS is 10.6.8

ITunes :: Copy And Paste Entire Column?

Jul 1, 2010

I am buying a car with iPod integration to the Navigation system. When I connect my iPod, I go to "artists" on the Nav screen and it comes up empty. Track, Genre, and other lists come up fine. In the past I have highlighted my entire library and cleared the unnececcary fields (Album artist, comments, etc) and I'm thinking the car may read album artist instead of artist.

So, I would like to copy the Artist for every song in my library into the Album Artist column. Is there an easy way to do this?

Applications :: Copy Entire ITunes Library?

Jul 1, 2010

I have my iTunes library stored on an external hard drive when using with my MacBook. I've just bought a Mac Mini and want to copy the entire collection over to my Mini's hard drive, but using File > Library > Organise Library and Consolidate files doesn't appear to work. Most files are copied, but some, randomly, aren't. Most of my purchased songs don't get copied either. What's the best way to ensure all of my music files are copied over to my HD so I can copy to my Mini?

MacBook Pro :: Boot From "copy" Of Entire System On Old Drive?

Dec 27, 2009

I had a hard drive failure in my Powerbook. I had "copied" ,not "backed up" with backup software, the entire contents of the hard drive to an external one. So i installed a new drive, installed OSX from the cd onto it in a smaller partition. Started up, copied the entire contents off the external drive onto the larger part of the partition. My thoughts were to keep the newly "installed" OSX software/system separate from the "copied" OSX software/system by partitioning it. What i wanted in the end was to be able to boot from my "copied" system and be back where I was a month ago, and disable/trash/whatnot the "installed" system that was just to get it up and going. I'm running 10.4.11 on the G4 1.67 Powerbook. So, how can I boot from the original hard drive contents? It doesn't recognize or give a choice for the copied hard drive contents with the copied system and all, just the "new" installed system.

MacBook Pro :: Fan Runs Constantly From Startup / Battery Life Getting Worse?

Oct 20, 2009

I've got an early 2008 Macbook Pro and, recently, I've noticed that the fan (fans?) begins running from the moment the computer is powered-up. iStat tells me that both fans are running at about 2000 rpms, though I only hear a slight whoosing noise from the left side. I don't remember the fan running constantly, and I have noticed that my battery life seems worse than normal recently. Is this normal, and something I just haven't noticed until recently?
