I have a MacBook Air and one day I lost the sound all together. I had tried to bring it back from the keyboard but it seems to be locked and cannot unlock it. Then I went to check on the sound in the system preferences and it is not showing anything either.
Because of problems accessing our network using Snow Leopard, I've started using the 'Favorites' folder as a 'shortcut' to our networked drives. It works fine and is very useful. A colleague has asked me to set the same facility up on his computer. When I dragged 'Favorites' from his 'Libary' folder to the sidebar, it appeared there with a heart icon. 'Sweet!' we thought. However, we then found that when we dragged one of the folders which he wanted to have in his favorites over to the sidebar, the O.S. proceeded to make a copy of the whole folder contents - instead of it working as a shortcut. What are we doing wrong?
This is the problem I just bought a brand new 2009 iMac with 4 Gigs of RAM. I installed the iStat Pro app that shows whats running and how much things are going on. I noticed that the RAM indicator went from 4 GIGS of RAM to 940MB of RAM. I'm freaking out b/c this a brand new computer. Is there a solution to bring the RAM back to normal?
I deleted my dock in terminal because I wanted to customize it, I missed a step and deleted my dock. please help me bring it back. I have no dock. And when I restarted my computer my background changed for some odd reason.
Apps that have been closed with the X checkbox. Are they gone forever? I thought they were just hidden and could be brought back. I can't seem to find a way to do that. The problem started because the App Store says I have an app installed when it's not in my Applications folder. Where is it looking to see if an app is installed? There are no receipts I could find.
is there any sensible way to order App Store purchases aside from purchase date, which seems the least useful.
I accidentally moved "My Pictures" folder from the My Favorites sidebar in Finder, and I can no longer find the folder. I've searched "all my files" for a My Pictures folder and nothing has come up, not even in the trash (that I haven't yet emptied). I am wondering if there is anyway of getting this folder back, as I had several pictures and folders organized within that My Pictures folder. All of my pictures are somewhere still on my computer but even they are hard to locate now without them being in any folder. Would be difficult to have to re-organize every single thing that was in that folder.
had to backup my mail in a folder, and deleted existing in order to re-insert my different email addresses to fix a problem - long story, now at a loss as how to bring old email info back into my program.
I upgraded to Yosemite very recently. Am noticing that ALL my browsers are NOT displaying page titles at the very top of the browser window. I've checked settings in each of the browsers I use (Safari, Firefox, Chrome) and have not found a setting to bring page titles back.
So far, this isn't going well for me. I have, at random points, had the screen completely shut off (go black) and no ability to bring it back on. I have also seen heat problems, and I'm really not doing anything except for outlook. Has anyone had the screen fail on them like this? It doesn't happen on the Mac side -- just when running Win7 in bootcamp with the latest drivers. Somewhat frustrating -- it just happened when I tried to open a PNG using windows picture viewer: bam, screen to black. I am guessing graphics driver failure.
I am looking for the equivalent of the windows favorites folder in Mac. Can you tell me where all the links are stored. ( Like when I like a site I add to the favorites in Mac), where is the folder where they are stored?
I had to restore my PowerbookPro from a back up, and my personal folder is missing favorits bar in finder. I can find my docs via the all my file option, but in previous mac OS personal folder option was easier.
I'm an idiot, pleased to meet you.I had 2 external drives connected to my Macbook Pro, both had time machine back ups on...I meant to delete one of these but deleted the wrong one, and dragged it into Trash. On realising my mistake I tried to drag it back out of Trash, as you would normally but after "preparing to copy" for four hours it told me the drive was full...It's a 500gb drive, and the Time Machine back up is the only thing on it, so presumably it's just trying to copy itself when the back up is still present on the drive, albeit in the Trash.
Microsoft files (e.g. excel) when forwarded as attachments and received by MacBook Winmail, get converted to winmail.dat files. However, MS Office products cannot open these winmail.dat files. Does anyone have a solution for this "bug"?
My application folder in my dock just randomly disappeared, and I can't figure out how to put it back! I can go to my apps via Finder, but I want to basically copy and paste my apps folder from Finder to my dock, but all it does when I try to either c & p or move from Finder to my dock is the poof thing.
Im recently registered but have been lurking the site for a few months now waiting for the new MBPs to come out. They came out and I got one (my first mac) but I have 2 issues.
1. There is a folder in my documents folder, from a program i manually installed via CD that keeps reappearing. Everytime i delete it, it comes back when i restart the computer. I have already uninstalled the program, but the empty folder keeps coming back.
2. Also, when i try and right click -->open with a video file, VLC comes up twice, any way to make it only appear once?

My Macbook Pro CD drive is not functioning properly. What do I bring when I go to drop it off at the Apple Store to get fixed. Also, how long would you estimate this fix to take? If it cannot be repaired would Apple replace the computer? I have had this computer for under a year and I have purchased the Apple Protection Plan.
