OS X :: How To Boot Up From Disc - Pressing C While Starting Up Doesn't Work

Jan 14, 2011

I was trying to boot up from my Snow Leopard disc last night to run Disk Utility (to repair my hard drive). I pressed C while starting up but it took me right to my login screen. I did this several times, no luck. I'm using a 15" MBP btw.

I also tried the same thing on my sister's MacBook (using her own install disc) -- same thing, straight to login screen.

I know pressing C used to work before because the MacBook used to belong to me and I did an erase & install before passing it down to my sister.

OS X :: MAC Partition Doesn't Show Up When Pressing Option At Startup

Feb 18, 2009

Was trying to install Windows XP through BootCamp. The installation did not go through, and I quit it. After I tried to restart the computer however, it kept going to a black screen with a blinking _ on top.

I restarted, pressing the "option" key and the only partition that shows up there is one for Windows. I can't see one labeled "Mac" or something like it anywhere. I tried using the Repair Disk Utility but it won't actually give me the option to repair ir.

OS X :: Macbook Pro Freezes With Msg Restart Computer By Pressing Power Button

Apr 8, 2009

I have a macbook pro, bought it May last year(2008). I don't know much about computers, but I loved the transition between pc and mac, had no trouble with it, loved to work with it, until now. I had noticed it became slower like 3 weeks ago, and a week ago, it started to freeze up on me followed by a message that said please restart your computer by pressing the power button and the screen becomes dark. When I try to restart it again, it takes a while because it shuts down again and again, until the 10th time it works. The store told me to clean intall, which I did yesterday, it seemed to have worked, it was faster for sure, but today it happened again, 3 times! Has this happened to anyone? Does somebody know what to do?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Boot Into Hardware Test / Pressing The D Key Without Disc

Sep 4, 2010

I've read that Early 2008 model MacBook Pros can boot into the Hardware test while pressing the D key on the keyboard without the disc in the drive (or was it the F2 key). I've also read that lots of people succeed doing it. Why does my MBP not do that?

Hardware :: Macbook Suddenly Shuts Off And Doesn't Power On Again

Mar 2, 2008

I've had my macbook for about 15 months. i noticed a while ago it had trouble turning off completely when running only on the battery. then a few weeks ago it shut itself off and wouldn't start up again. the power cord indicator was orange, but nothing worked. ordered a new battery, that didn't help. tried a different power cord - nada. i took it in to an apple repair shop and they said something about the internal power connector (i'm not a techy) and took 2 weeks to repair. i've had it back 3 weeks now and the same thing has happened. only this time there is no indicator light on any of the power adapters. and my partially charged batteries do not work on their own either.

any ideas? i don't want to keep fixing the same thing and every few weeks it keeps breaking again. i mean, what's the point in having the computer then, right??

MacBook :: New 60W MagSafe Power Adapter Doesn't Work?

Oct 10, 2010

I recently bought a new charger called the 60W MagSafe Power Adapter, for some reason for the first time when I plug it into my Leopard Macbook, it works. But when I take it out and plug it back in, it doesn't seem to charge. I would have to remove my battery and place it in again for the charger to charge my macbook. I don't think the charger is the problem because it charges on my macbook Tiger fine.

If I select from the menu bar another available wireless network (one without a password for example) and then switch back to my own wi-fi network, am I still safe?

Did the fact that I connected to another network present any risks?

I did not send any private info during that time, any risks of getting hacked?

MacBook :: Unable To Charge Battery / Computer Doesn't Recorgnize The Charger

Jun 14, 2008

I have had my MacBook (aluminum) for 6 days, and all of a sudden i go to plug it in to charge (10% left) and the led on the magsafe doesn't come on and the computer doesn't recorgnize the charger (even in system profiler).

upon closer inspection i noticed the LED is on on the magsafe, it is just a very faint shade of green.I have tried a charger from a different MacBook but no luck. And i have also tried my charger and a different macbook and it charged it just fine.. so it's probably not my charger.

Any ideas?? i know i can go get it replaced.. but i would really like to not have to take a 45 minute drive to the apple store if i can avoid it.. (unless this problem is serious and should be replaced) also, if i get a replacement is it possible for them to just swap my HDD with the new one?

Mac Pro :: ATI HD 2600 XT Hdmi Signal Loss To LCD TV After Input Switch Or Power Off

Mar 3, 2008

Hook up a $3K machine to a $1.5K display and have to hard power down your $3K machine to get the picture back.When I boot everything is fine. If I change input to TV or power off the display, when I power back up or switch back to hdmi input screen displays error, can't read signal check output device. I have read on this forum about a issue similar with ATV but not with MacPro. In my google searches I read some issues with Vista, but no resolution... thought to be a ATI driver problem. Does anyone know of a tweak to fix the ATI 2600 XT to remember the tv signal after you change inputs or power off the display?

Power Mac :: G5 Doesn't Boot To New Image?

Mar 8, 2012

I'm attempting to install several PowerMac G5s with the same image.  All the PowerMacs are the same vintage, and two of the four seem to work just fine.  The other two have the same issue. 

I created a model machine that's suitable for cloning: installed and updated all necessary software, configured system settings, and then used Disk utility to copy the model system to a read-only disk image.  I then used the Disk Utility application to prepare the system image for deployment by Scanning the Image for Restore. 

I then restored the image to hard drives with Disk Utility.  I placed in the four HDs in the PowerMacs.  Two of the PowerMacs booted without a problem, the other two won't boot to the restored image.  I tried holding down Option key when booting, and option to boot to the drive never shows up.  Also tried resetting the PRAM, but that didn't work either.

MacBook, Xserve G5, PowerMac G5, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Power Mac :: G5 Boots Sporadically & Doesn't Remember Date And Time?

Jul 2, 2012

I have an old Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5 (aluminum tower). When it boots up, I get a message that the Date & Time are no longer correct. I go into date and time settings and reset them, however when I shot down and reboot later, the time has been reset to June 1969 or some similar date. Also, when the computer shuts down, it cannot be rebooted immediately. If I try to reboot it, I hear the fans start up and drives start spinning, but then they all seem to power down (a red light can still be visible inside. If I shut it down and wait 15 minutes, it will boot up fine, however the date/time has reset to 1969.  

I have done the obvious things like replacing the clock battery and resetting the pram and smu, but still no joy. I suspect a hardware fault of some kind, but don't know what to try next.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Goes Completely Dark On Pressing C

Aug 7, 2010

It's only an 8 month old mid 2009 uMBP (2.26ghz, 4GB, 500GB). I was using the Disk Utility when it asked me to insert my MAC OS X Install disc and press "c" during start up and repair it. Every time I insert the disc and press "c" my screen goes completely dark. I thought it could have been a problem with the sensor so I flashed a light into it but it didn't work. I even tried putting it directly towards the sun light and still it doesn't work.

Power Mac :: Switch The Startup Disk On G3?

Mar 17, 2012

I recently developed a problem where my Blue and White G3 Power Mac will not start in OSX. It starts but then displays a screen that tells in four languages to restart my machine. When I restart I just get the same message.This all started when I switched from booting in OS 9 to OSX.  Both had worked in the past.  Now I cannot return to OS 9.  Is there a short cut of keys to press to bring up the start up disk control panel during start up to try switching back to OS 9?
