MacBook :: Trackpad Not Working Properly - Unable To Open Apps

May 13, 2012

My Trackpad on my MacBook isn't working properly. I can move the arrow around the screen but I'm unable to open any applications. I plugged in a mouse and it works fine. The trackpad settings in system preferences seem fine, I didn't spill any liquid on it and didn't let it fall.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Not Working Properly 13 Inch 2011 (early)

Feb 9, 2012

My trackpad suddenly stopped working well more precisely is being erratic. When I move my finger across the pad the pointer is not moving and when it does move there seems to be a lag. The gestures are not working properly etc and the pointer would move on its own not by much but a little bit. I have tried SMC and PRAM and that has not helped. I attached an external mouse and was having problems with moving the pointer, however when I selected disable trackpad when external mouse is attached the external mouse worked just fine. All of my software is up todate I am running OSX 10.6.8.  I hope I do not have to get another track pad the laptop is about 7 months old and I have an apple care plan but I am out of the US for the next couple of months so I am looking for fix I can do myself.

MacBook :: Trackpad Not Clicking Properly

Jan 5, 2010

I've only had my white Macbook for nine months, but the last few months I've had trouble clicking the trackpad. There are times when I have to force it down. The right side of the trackpad seems to be the most problematic. I tried to ignore it, but it only seems to get progressively worse.

MacBook Air :: Apps Don't Appear Properly In Dock

May 2, 2012

My friend's MBP was doing this recently, and asked me if I had a solution - to which I did not, and now my MBA is doing this: 

On the left side of my dock, I have all the applications I frequently use, Finder, Browser, Mail, etc etc.  And on the right side of my dock, ive put a few folders for my documents, applications, and downloaded items, for quick access to them. 

My other applications, when openned from the Applications folder on the right side of the dock, would usually pop a little icon down on the left side of the dock, indicating that particular application was currently running, and where you could click on it - view files currently openned, that sort of thing.  And now - That no longer happens?  When the app is openned, it no longer puts an icon on the left side.  Theres no presence that the app is currenly running.  If i have several apps running at once maximized, I can no longer Tab between them back and forth, or click between them on the dock.  And when I minimize the app It no longer receides into its icon on the left (because the icon doesnt appear there anymore), but now minimizes to the right hand side of the dock. 

I don't know what has changed, or happenned, and I doubt it's something I did - because I rarely mess around with the settings on this thing.  It operates perfectly otherwise.

OS X :: Macbook Internet Not Working Properly?

Feb 23, 2010

out of the blue about 3 months ago my MacBook(version10.4.11) started refusing to recognize my home wireless. the problem has now reached the point where it AT TIMES will display that the wireless newtwork is on in the toolbar yet the computer will not jump onto the internet. Now it has reached the point where it won't even show that it sees the wireless in the toolbar. I have reloaded all passwords , checked the Verizon wirelss set up, reloaded firefox , checked all firewalls. The wierd thing is that my kids macbook is fine. Mine is the one with the problem.I checked all my settingts to correspond/copy hers and they do. Have zapped pram too. It works fine EVERYWHERE else but home.

OS X :: MacBook Wireless Not Working Properly?

Sep 8, 2009

Starting about 4 months ago my 3 year-old 2.0GHz Core Duo MacBook's wireless started to not work very well. What was happening is that after starting the computer or waking it from sleep, it was able to connect to my network, but after about 5 seconds it would lose the signal despite being physically very close to the router without anything to block the signal. The problem progressively got worse, and at its worst it was only able to connect about 1 in 10 times. Either it wouldn't find the network at all, or it would find it but couldn't connect because "The connection timed out" or something like that.

I never bothered fixing the problem because my Mac was having a bunch of other issues at the time, so I was just going to fix them all by doing a fresh install of Snow Leopard once it came out.

So 3 days ago I did a fresh install of Snow Leopard (I formatted the harddrive then did a fresh install, not an archive and install). Unfortunately, it only kinda helped the wireless problem: I can now connect half the time rather than 1 in 10 times like it used to be.

I'm quite sure my network isn't the problem because everyone that has used my network in the recent past (which has been about 10 different PCs, Macs, and iPhones) hasn't had any problems. FYI, I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router.

MacBook Pro :: Tap To Click Not Working Properly?

Mar 21, 2012

After re-installing Lion I've had this very annoying issue with tap-to-click on the trackpad of my MBP. While it seems to work most of the time, I often have to move the cursor away from the button or click on a window as if to make it active in orer for the click to work. A similar problem is occuring in MS Word when I'm going through the spell check process - I have to sometimes click "ignore" multiple times or click somewhere else in that window for the click to register.

MacBook Pro :: Cap Locks Not Working Properly

Apr 10, 2012

I have a macbook pro running 10.6.8 & the cap lock turns on when I press the 2nd bracket key. The cap lock stays on until I press the 2nd bracket key again. It will not turn on when I press the cap lock key or shift cap lock key. I tried resetting all shortcuts in system preferences & rebooting the computer, but it is still the same. I can't use the 2nd bracket key now

MacBook Pro :: Brightness Sensor Not Working Properly

Jun 14, 2010

I bought my first Mac computer last month, the 13" 2.4 variant. Loving it so far.I have lately noticed however that my ambient light sensor is not much of help. Before, after coming out of sleep I could notice the screen changing to accommodate for the room's light output. I could also put my hand over the sensor near the iSight and witness the brightness decrease in front of me.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Not Working Properly After 10.6.4 Update

Jun 23, 2010

I updated to 10.6.4 the other day on my mbp 17" 2.93 mid 2009 model the other day. Since, my computer has developed two problems. first and most annoying, the keyboard doesn't work properly anymore. Shift keys don't work, then they do work. One side doesn't then the other side does. option and command do the same thing. Is this a documented problem? I searched and saw it was prior to 10.6.4, but I never had any problems until this update. Also, when I shut my computer, instead of going to sleep now. It goes crazy, fans jack up to full speed and it gets super hot. Doesn't sleep at all. Funny enough before the update, when i closed the lid the computer would go to sleep and wouldn't wake up.

MacBook Pro :: Right Channel Output Not Working Properly?

Sep 10, 2014

I recently purchased a Retina Macbook Pro 15" no more than 3 months ago. 

Today I just noticed that whenever I connect my headphones I can hear the left channel clearly but the right channel is a lower volume and distorted. 

at first I thought it was the headphones, but have tried various ones and it doesn't seem to be that. 

Also, output from the internal speakers sounds fine, same level on both channels and clear

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mouse Click Not Working Properly On MacBook Pro

Mar 20, 2012

I just bought a macbook pro last week. Since using lion, I have noticed a problem clicking. Such as opening folders, minimizing windows, clicking the back space button etc. I click on a few folders and they open, and then I try to click on another one and it refuses to open no matter how many times I click on it unless I unselect it and try again. It is not consistent to specific folders/icons, it just happens at random.

It is as if the OS is not registering clicks consistently, like it were a hardware problem. Also my right click malfunctions at times and will either not work or will behave like it is the left click and vice versa and takes awhile to regulate itself. Keep in mind I use both a wireless usb mouse and my trackpad and this is a problem I experience with both of them. I am using the latest version (10.7.3)
