MacBook Pro :: Words On It Changed To Numbers/codes?
Mar 8, 2012
When I am using programs like 'Finder' and I'm trying to select different options, for some reason the words such as, 'Arrange by', 'Date created' etc have all changed to number and letter codes, I don't know how I've done this or how to change it back. They all still work if you select them, I just can't read what I'm selecting.
I know my coding is perfect, I used to work on the pc with it. Now moving to a Mac... I'm having such difficulty its starting to frustrate me. I've googled ways to solve it and they all say change the rich text and so on so forth. I've done that yet no change has occured for me. When I bought this, I asked if I could do my codes on it and the guy said yes, that I could do it straight from my textedit.
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I've been ripping my hair out trying to find the answer to this.
In Numbers for Mac, I need to fill a column automatically with a series of integers (1 - 50) and then the next column with a function that interacts with the first column.
Column A - 1 - 5
Column B - (value in Column A * 5)
I can't figure out how to do it in Numbers When I try to fill column a with 1 - 50 all it does is fill all 1's and I cant find an option how to make that change so it automatically numbers when I highlight them.
The best I can describe is how in Excel you can type 1 in the first cell, then highlight a bunch of cells and the little box appears that lets you click "Fill Series"
I have a Mid 2010 15" Macbook Pro, core i7 processor, 1.5TB HD, and 8GB of Ram
In November it started having problems with a gray screen with folder and question mark. I defragged and re-optimized the volumes of the hard drive and everything was fine. I have tried reinstalling both ram chips twice. It worked fine for a few weeks and then I started getting beeps and error codes. I can startup fine but after using for a minute or two the screen freezes and three beeps start. Othertimes a panic code will come up too.
I've attached the panic codes in images.
Error Code – panic cpu 2 caller 0xffffff000b2dca29
***Are the Ram chips bad? Or is there an issue with the Logic Board
Alright I just picked up a new Macbook Pro from school today, and all my apps keep crashing, Safari, Chrome, System Preferences, you name it..... I've done a bit of search on the two codes I'm seeing and guess it might be the NuRam (8gb) I just put into it. Just wondering if there is anyway I can test the ram before I call them up? Just as a heads up these are the codes I'm seeing: Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS
I was using Safari browser and lost my entire long letter. I tried viewing history & reloading the page.... no luck.
There must be a way of retrieving all the history on one's computer. Maybe not in Safari, but other software loaded in my comp. Syst tools or sys preferences maybe. I just need to know where to look because i'm pretty clueless.
I have recently discovered that on safari, on certain websites such as bbc.co.uk, there are words that are highlighted in green and underlined. Everytime i click on a 'green word' it takes me to some kind of pop-up style website that looks pretty dodgy. Also it happens on google chrome. My computer is running a tad slower, but nothing out of the ordinary. I fear something may have downloaded by accident via the internet.
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5), 2.5 years old.
NB: First mac...When I first put a DVD into my mac (DVD and mac both from Australia) I was asked to set my region code - fair enough. Then, I inserted another dvd, from Australia again. I had to reset my region code. I was alarmed to find that I could only set my region code 5 times...I know of alternatives such as VLC that ignore region coding, but none of these offer the tight integration that Apple's DVD player does.A quick google search also revealed the possibilities of installing a region-free drive, and using a utility called RegionX, which resets OSX's region change counter (only with region-free drives...). Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of extra optical drive bays, as with the Mac Pro...
When I turn it on it comes up with the white screen and then the apple logo shows and then the loading symbol comes. The screen then goes blue for about 30 seconds and then the screen goes black. Code starts to come up...Here's some detail on my IMac: 17" 1.83Ghz
So I just recently purchased a Mac mini and I started putting my music all into the computer. I logged into my Apple ID and it works fine, but every time I try to update my apps, I get an error code 5002. I thought to myself, "well, this is a Mac, so I know its not a firewall blocking the internet or anything in particular". So I went ahead and tried updating my iTunes Match account while I Googled for the error code 5002. When I updated iTunes Match, it looked as if it was gathering information when all of a sudden, it stops and gives me an error code -50. It said "Genius results can't be updated right now. An unknown error occured (-50). So then I immediately started to worry. I plugged in my iPhone 4S (for the first time) and decided that once in sync mode, it will just update my apps so I don't have to worry about downloading it on my Mac. Well, that is when I received an error code 1008. It wanted me to authotize my computer and when entered my credentials, it said it couldn't authorize it and when I cancelled the process, it gave me the error code 1008. So... I am stuck in a rut since I've spent almost an entire week trying to figure this out with no solution. I have tried signing out and signing back in and nothing. I also restarted my wireless router and no luck. I can't afford to create a new account since I've always had the same Apple ID and I have a BUNCH of media that I have purchased through iTunes, so creating a new Apple ID is out of the question. I can't sync my iPhone, I can't update iTunes Match, and I can't update my apps. I am currently using the 800 dollar Mac Mini.
Is there a piece of software out there that can allow me to find out the key codes of keys that aren't normally on a keyboard. Or a way to figure them out?Or even better, would be a piece of software that allows me to use my multimedia keys on my macbook. The link below is the keyboard and the buttons I am talking about are the six small, circular ones to the right at the top of the keyboard.
I think I may have this Java Trojan virus that many have been talking about, in which the most common attribute of it is that it makes my Finder display folder names as N80, N81, etc.... in replacement of titles such as 'Open Finder' and 'Empty Trash'?I have tried a few things, such as Repair Disk Permissions, restarting, and logging off, but to no success.
to two blue screens.. I was told to Re install.. "archive and install" to be specific .. Snow leopard.. In a tragic fire i lost alot of things.. one of which was my key code to abletonlive.. If i archive and install snow leopard again to fix my boot up problem.. Will it ask me for a keycode for abletonlive?.. Or will all my applications run as they did prior to having my boot up problem, after archive and install is ran with snowleopard again
Today I ran AHT version 3A134 on my MacBook Pro Penryn 2.5GHz (early 2008) it came out with error codes:
4MOT/1/40000002: Right side-2893 on 1st extended test result, 4MOT/1/40000002: Right side-3017 on 2nd extended test.
When I initially ran the short test no error code was resulted from the test, only by the extended tests the errors occurred. I have my machine's limited warranty until June 2009. Could you please tell me what are the error codes refer to?
I have a question about how time machine deals with programs. I am rethinking my backup solution because my 17MBP has had its HDD replaced three times. I have been running winclone for my windows partition and it is simply amazing. I was wondering if I back up from time machine, do all of my programs fall back into place perfectly with serial codes, etc. maintained? I ask because I am in the process of choosing the automated TM backups, or just doing CC clones myself because of how simple it is to restore a backup from a clone.
(I meant Letters are as big as a quarter.) A friend of mine was given a imac for free. (i asked what model - it just says imac and is a big monitor) She called me and said when displaying web pages the text is way too huge.
I just received my first Mac - a 13" Macbook Pro. I will get my windows XP disc today and plan on using Boot Camp & Parallels but would like to ween myself off of Windows as soon as practically possible. I use Quicken, Quickbooks, Office and Photoshop (CS3) and iTunes amongst others. I realize all my pc backups will work in Boot Camp but my question is - When I eventually get the applications for Mac will my old backed up files work in my new Mac applications? I am slightly confused - in other words are .jpg, .doc, .xl files the same in both environments and it just uses the "for Mac" software to interpret them? I have my backups on external hard drives and would like to migrate them over. Which brings up another Mac nooby question - what is the best way to use my new Mac with iTunes but not lose the content of my iPods?
