MacBook Pro :: Unable To Keep Settings / Date And Time Resetting?

Sep 15, 2010

I have had my new MBP for about 2.5 weeks. On two different occasions, when I turn my computer on from being completely off the pop up appears saying my date and time are set improperly. The computer sets its self/ forget the date and time and goes back to 1/30/2000 at 6 am or so, when obviously its not Jan of 2000 and I'm not turning my computer on at 6 a.m. Anyway to make sure this doesn't happen? Has anyone else had this experience? I never once had this problem with my whitebook the 4 years I had it.

OS X :: Unable To Set Time And Date / Time Date Settings Wrong

Sep 30, 2008

So I shut down my computer earlier today for the first time in weeks. I restarted it and then left for a few hours for dinner.

I come home and I look at the last time MobileMe Sync and Time Machine did their things. They say they did them at 7:45. I look at the clock on my cable box and on my iPhone, both say 6:45.

Weird that the MacBook's time is wrong. I go into Time Date settings. I see that when the MacBook does the "Auto locate where you are so that we can set the appropriate time zone, etc. the MacBook things I'm in Rexford, Idaho.

I haven't been to Idaho in about 25 years, and my MacBook has been sitting in Southern Kalifornia for the last one year since I bought it.I've tried to have the MacBook auto-locate again, and it keeps finding me us in Rexford, idaho.

Software :: Losing Time And Date Settings / Wireless Settings Changing?

Aug 23, 2009

I have a G5 Duel 2GHz Power PC, Recently I was losing the time, date and wireless settings so I assumed as my machine is now 4 years old the PRAM battery was up for renewal.This has now been replaced but I'm still losing my settings, not all the time but randomly, sometimes I lose my wireless key sometimes I lose time and date sometimes both, this can happen daily.

I have removed the (New) Battery and checked the voltage and it reads 3.6 Volts, I haven't checked this under load though, so presuming that the battery is OK, what else could cause this.. a failing System Board?

Software :: Time And Date Gets Corrupted / Unable To Set Date And Time

May 8, 2009

I'm running OSX 10.5.8 on a G4 iBook. Somehow my Time & Date files got corrupted which prevented me from getting on to the internet. When I discovered the problem, I threw them away, thinking a restart would create them again. I was wrong.

Now my computer doesn't know what time or year it is, causing various problems. I don't have back-up 10.5 disks to extract the time & date package.Can I download a replacement anywhere?

Or can someone email the files to me? I don't know what they're called but, if you search time and date, there are only two (and please tell me what folders they're in too)

OS X :: Unable To Load Date And Time / Time & Date Crashes

Sep 20, 2009

Starting yesterday, I cannot load Time & Date (either from System Prefs or from the menu bar). I get the beachball and I have to Force Quit System Prefs.

I tried Repairing Permissions and rebooting but it didn't help.I tried deleting .plist entries (as per a related thread on the Internet) and rebooting and that didn't work either.I tried logging off and logging in with another account and the problem is still there.I hope I can get some help because it's driving me nuts. I travel a lot and need to change my time zone. If you need a crash report from me, please tell me how to get it from Console bc I don't know where to look for it!

P.S. I am using old OSX 10.4.11

MacBook Pro :: Resetting All Settings?

Sep 8, 2010

I had a MacBook for about a year now and a few weeks ago I started having problems with videos from online (ex. YouTube). They would start loading and stop, on and off. It would load about 2-3 seconds of video every few minutes. So I reset safari and everything, that didn't help. Anyway, I got a MacBook pro last week, and I transferred everything from my MacBook to the MacBook pro via ethernet cable. I am not experiencing this problem on the MacBook pro since the transfer. I reset safari again, no help. Have had friends use their computers on my wifi network, they all work fine. My speeds are over 10mbps. So my question, I don't want to erase all of my data, as I have no means to backup my iTunes library which is huge and all my documents and such. Is there a way to go back to factory settings though? Like should I reinstall the OS without erasing my data?

OS X :: Date And Time Not Displaying Properly / Unable To Set Eastren Time

Jun 30, 2010

We got a refurbished Alu MB for an intern and the time is not displaying properly. If I check the "Set date & time automatically", the digital and analog clock is showing different times. See picture. Also, when I go in Time Zone, I set Eastern time, it will set it, but when I go back to preference, it sets back to GMT.

It's running 10.5.6 if that helps.

OS X :: Mouse Sensitivity Settings Keep Resetting?

Aug 1, 2010

I use a Razer Deathadder and ever since I've started using it I've had to reset my sensitivity settings (via Apple -> System Preferences -> Mouse) after every system restart. I've read a bit about it online, some seem to think that deleting the Razer driver would work, but it hasn't for me. Any ideas on why the settings keep getting changed back to default?

MacBook Pro :: Restore To Earlier Date Without Using Time Machine?

Jun 18, 2012

I logged in to my Mac a couple of days ago and it said it was restore to some weird date. It does not appear anything changed, but now when I am trying to download a Sims game (don't judge me lol) it won't download saying there is no Internet connection even though there is. Is there anyone to restore the system to a date that I know it was working properly without using time machine? I never bought an external drive so my time machine is not set up.

MacBook Pro :: After System Date / Time Reset It Can't Open Any Programs

Mar 30, 2012

Booted my macbook pro 2009 and the time was reset to 2001, a prompt asked me to change settings or else the computer might function erratically. So i changed the date and time settings as suggested but then suddenly it stopped working. I restarted the computer but i could no longer open any programs. My dock was gone, the screen background was changed back to the original and i couldn't access the system preferences. Every time i click on the apple icon the screen just refreshes and that's it.

My laptop hasn't been turned off for the last 48 hrs before this happened. i was working and uploading huge files to dropbox and since my Internet connection was really slow, i had to keep it on so it would upload continuously. Was thinking this might have caused some malfunction.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Organize All Movies / Can't Find Settings

Jul 25, 2009

A few years ago I decided to put all my DVD's in storage and rip them in divx/h264 format to an external HD that I plugged into my PS3 for easy access. The problem is that when my GF and I want to watch a movie, I have to explain each movie and we choose one based on the title without access to the movie cover or any meta data. I was wondering if there was a program akin to itunes that would go through my hard drive and (with some help with me) identify each movie and find the cover art etc. I don't know how automatic this will be. I don't mind spending some time assisting the program but I don't want to go and do it by hand.

If you find a windows software I can run it on virtualbox as well.

MacBook Pro :: Only Transfer Apps And Settings From Time Machine Backup

Apr 13, 2010

I had severe account troubles on Snow Leopard, and today, the Mac partition became corrupt and unreadable. I have a very recent Time Machine backup of that user account, but I don't want to transfer the account itself. Can I just transfer applications, documents, and settings, and not the account itself? And how do I do a clean install of Mac Snow Leopard onto a hard drive with a previous installation of the OS?

Mac Pro :: Can't See Date And Time When Safari Is Opened?

May 17, 2012

Ok so if I have everything closed I can see the date and time on the upper right and everything else like normal.  If I open up any other program like itunes I can see the date and time like normal.  However as soon as I open up safari the date and time disapears.  If I switch between safari and any open program like itunes the time reappears.  Same thing if I have safari open and click on the desktop it brings up finder and the time shows again.  Not sure if this has anything to do with it but when Im in safari I cant open any of the menus on top (file, edit, view, history, etc.).  Ive tried clicking on them and using the shortcut keys and nothing works.  I can still use safari fine other than that.  This all started after the last system update I had a few days ago.  Ive triend resetting my computer and shutting it down but nothing seems to help.

Mac Pro :: Replaced Int Battery - Still Get Date - Time ErrorMsg?

Sep 3, 2007

Recently started getting the Date & Time Error message when bootup completed to desktop each morning when starting up ol' PMG4. PMG4 is gigabit ethernet model with GigaDesign 1.3MHz CPU upgrade and running OSX 10.4.10. After a few days of this, I realized that internal battery must be going bad (although replaced it 2 years ago...). Had local Mac shop replace battery and for about a week all was good... Then message came back again! And then a few days later one of my internal hard drives went bad and crashed and icon disappeared from desktop....coincidence or ???

Anyway, took my PMG4 back to shop and they put in another battery for me....thinking that maybe battery wasn't so good that was put in. Guess what, still getting that error message every morning at bootup that Mac's date and time is set before 2001, etc. Any ideas as to what's causing this??? wasn't doing this until just recently.

MacBook :: Date And Time Reset Back To 2001?

Jul 17, 2009

I switched on my UMB (late 2008), and when I logged into the desktop, there popped a message box stating, "date has been changed to xx/xx/2001 and applications depending on the date may malfunction"

When i checkd the "Date and Time" settings in the sys preferences, it was showin Jan 01 2001. Since it automatically updates the date n time frm apple server, it immediately took today's date n time and everything else is working fine now.

But, am curious about why this actually had to happen? I hadnt changed the date n time when i had shut it down last night. What could be the issue here? Is my macbook unable to remember date and time? or Something like BIOS battery is dead?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Change Print Settings On A Mbp / Printer Settings OSX 10.5?

Jun 26, 2010

I have had my MacBook Pro now for a little over 2 yrs and I was very frustrated I could not change any print options in any application. I know that the Triangle button expands print options screen but when I do, I have only two print choices. It gave me Standard or Page Attributes in Office and any other App it is Standard and Last used settings. I can't print in Draft, Best or other setting because it does not even give them as a choice. I have two high end color photo printers, Canon i9900 and Epson Photo series and an old HP830 series. Any app I tried to print from and the same thing. I tried to capture the options on the choices but it would not grab that part of the image but here is my screen shot. I searched many forums and I still get the same answer so something else is not letting me change things so I figured best to ask since I am a 20 year win user now switched to Mac. Well right after I posted this question, my wife found the answer. I never though to check the application NAME in the print setting screen. Example, in the screenshot I am using Preview. I never thought to hit the up/down arrow next to the Preview label and wouldn't you know, that is were the quality and several other settings were. I felt pretty stupid that it took 2 years to figure this out but if I posted the answer maybe someone else will not have to take as long as I did to change their print quality!
