OS X :: Reinstalling 10.4 On PowerBook Running 10.5

Mar 25, 2010

I installed 10.5 on a G4 powerbook and then decided it ran better with 10.4. Can I downgrade to 10.4 and still have all the applications installed? I don't want to reinstall a bunch of applications.

Hardware :: PowerBook Suddenly Running Very Slow

Sep 20, 2009

My PowerBook has been working extremely slow for the past couple of days. Restarting hasn't helped. Even though it's about 5 years old, it's never given me any trouble. Now I wanted to start FinalCutPro, and there's a popup saying: Configuration Error This software requires certain hardware or software which is missing. � 512MB of RAM.So I can't even start this program. It's really an emergency since I have to work with FCP

OS X :: Powerbook Running OS 10.2.8 All Of A Sudden, Trash Just Won't Empty?

Jan 19, 2006

I have a Powerbook running OS 10.2.8 All of a sudden, my trash just won't empty - anything, locked, unlocked, anything at all. I've reset permissions, still, nothing. I did manage to empty my trash via a program called Cocktail, which I know some of you guys are familiar with, but it is striking me odd that I just can't empty the trash the good old fashion way.

Anyone have any guesses or suggestions?

PowerPC :: Running Powerbook At 1366 X 768 Resolution?

Dec 15, 2006

I recently bought a DVI-HDMI cable to connect my Powerbook (see sig) to my Sony LCD tv. THe Sony's max resolution is 1366 x 768 (pretty much standard for HD-ready tvs). I've been trying to get my powerbook to output that resolution so I get a full screen picture on the tv. However for some reason I keep getting stuck with 1280x720, which leaves some black bars all around.

I'm using SwitchResX where I input the resolution as a custom resolution. I then restarted as the software suggests, but it doesn't let me apply the resolution.

Applications :: Video Player For A Powerbook Running 10.3.9?

Jan 14, 2010

Don't say VLC. VLC chokes this machine to death. 95% CPU usage. Frame rate is one per second. AVI files need to be played. Are there any codecs I can use with Quicktime v6.5? Or how about a different player? Quicktime seems to run smoothly on this machine. .MOV files play nicely. DVDs play fine. Can't do flash unfortunately.

PowerPC :: Running 10.5 On PowerBook G4 / Leopard Supported On 10.5?

May 13, 2010

Hey all. I have an odd question for you guys. My friend's PowerBook G4 crashed hard yesterday and she had to reinstall OS X (she lost all her stuff). She has 10.3, but she is having a hard time finding apps that will run under it. I did some research for her and found that her system should be able to run 10.5, which would make life a lot easier for her as just about all apps run under 10.5. The one problem with this is I am not sure if her system can handle it.

Here are the specs she gave me:
PowerBook G4

Does anyone know if this is enough to run Leopard well?? ATM she just need something that will get online, download torrents, and play DVDs. She is a musician and she has composition software that ran under 10.3. Not sure if it will run under 10.4, but ATM she just wants the system back to "useable" condition.If she can't run 10.5, she should be able to upgrade to 10.4 right? She will have more trouble finding apps that are compatible, but at least it will run better then 10.3 does.

OS9/OS8/System 7 :: How To Print Stuff From Old PowerBook Running OS 9.2.2

Apr 9, 2012

I need to print some stuff off of my old PowerBook that runs OS 9.2.2. The stuff is only accessible by music software running on that old Mac. My impression is that my up-to-date printer can't print from OS 9.2.2. I've got an old, portable Canon printer that I used to use with the PowerBook when traveling, but I can't get that printer to even power up. How do I print my stuff?

PowerBook G3, Mac OS 9.2.x

Apr 18, 2012

I need to transfer old Email messages from a Powerbook G4 running 10.5.8 to a newer iMac running 10.6.8. I can move the messages from Mail Library into the newer Mac Mail Library (via home wireless network), but when I open Mail program on the new iMac the Emails don't show up in the Mailbox I transferred them to. I can see the messages in Mail Library and even read them if I double click on the message, but I can't see them in the Mail program.Is there a compatibility issue between Leopard and Snow Leopard?

PowerPC :: Running DVD Player On Titanium Powerbook In Vertical Position?

May 26, 2008

I'm going on a day long driving trip with my kids later this week and I kludged together a good solution of bungee cords to hold my titanium PB to the back of a seat so I can play movies for them. I got a Sony car inverter that seems to output an appropriate amount of power for the PB. On a test drive around the block with the DVD running, the PB seemed to get pretty hot, but otherwise worked fine. Is there any reason why I shouldn't go ahead with this setup? Anything I'm likely to wreck?

PowerPC :: Powerbook Battery - Significance Of Levels For Powerbook G4 15''

Nov 15, 2006

I am leaving for a week long trip and many parts of it will not be able to run the computer off of the powercord, which is a problem because I get about 40mins of wordprocessing use out of it when I run the battery alone. Can someone explain what the significance of these levels are for my Powerbook G4 15'' (Alm) 1.25GHz, namely the cycle count and full charge/remaining capacity?

OS X :: Reinstalling Without Disc 2?

Apr 10, 2009

I wanted to reinstall my operating system (I have OSX 10.5.2) so I backed up a few things and began my re installation. I installed fine but didn't ask me to insert my Mac OS X Install Disc 2. I got through it alright and now I have a working OS. So I'm not sure what all Disc 2 does for me, but I know i'm missing garage band and honestly thats the program I use the most. So does anyone else have any information about this (i.e. it happened to you, you know what all is on disc 2, or you know what i need to do to have it ask for disc 2)

OS X :: Reinstalling Os X To Macbook Pro ?

Sep 30, 2009

I was having problems with my macbook pro and decided to reformat it and reinstall os x and boot it off my time machine back up from my MacPro.

The main problem I've had is that I couldn't find my original installation discs (the macbook pro was bought in April 2008), I used my friends OS X disc (from his computer which was about 2 years older) and it seemed to install ok until I realised that the sound is gone, airport is gone and all the keys have different shortcuts to their original ones.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Reinstalling It On Mac Pro?

Jun 12, 2012

I've been having problems with speed on my Mac Pro for a while.  Today, I tried to boot up and every time it booted, it just froze! I've used Diskawrrior and diask utility on it. Disk Utility says it's fine. Disk Warrior finds to files at the root that can't be accessed. I've run DiskWarrior about 5 times. Each time it tells me that it has fixed the problem but my Mac still freezes or won't boot up. I try Disk Warrior again and it finds the same problem.

I've tried to reinstall Lion but it tells me that the volume is used for Time Macine backups (it isn't) and won't lert me reinstall backups.  I've asked Time Machine (which I get to by starting up using the option key) to show me the backups on my hard drive and it tells me that there aren't any. I try to reinstall Lion and It tells me again that my volume is being used for time machine backups. I'm stuck and have no idea what to do next.

4 core, Mac OS X (10.5.2), 5 gigs ram

Apr 10, 2009

I keep getting problems with passwords and I can only presume I have spyware issues on my mac book pro.

I want to completely start again but there are 3 issues:

1. I don't have my MS Office for Mac original disc although I do have the product ID number and I do have my original OS X install discs and Iwork 08 disc.

2. How do I backup absolutely everything so that as soon as I reinstall I can start where I began?

3. I am not very technical and don't have a clue how to uninstall everything and then reinstall. How do I do this so that any possible threats are totally gone?

Mac Pro :: Wiping Clean And Reinstalling OS X?

May 31, 2009

I just bought my first Mac, a used Mac Pro, the 2 x 2.66 Dual Core Xeon version. It is currently running OS X 10.5.6. I would like to wipe the hard drive clean and reinstall OS X. I understand this would get rid of unwanted software, let me change the administrator, and let me set things up how I want.

I tried booting up from the install disc, by starting the computer while holding down the "C" button. It said I can't install the install disk's version of OS X because a newer version is running on the computer. My question I guess is pretty simple: How do you erase a Mac Pro and reinstall the OS?

OS X :: Uninstalling And Reinstalling Mac Leopard - How To Know About It

Jun 2, 2009

1. Am I supposed to run any kind of disk maintenance (repairing permissions for example) prior to reinstalling Leopard?

2. Since all of my apps are going to be downgraded to its previous versions that originally came with Leopard installation DVDs, and my OS is going to be downgraded to 10.5.3 (I am on 10.5.7 at the moment), I am in a dilemma. Is it better to go with step-by-step update of Leopard (first download 10.5.4 and install it, than 10.5.5, etc...) or go directly to 10.5.7 from 10.5.3 (I think combo update is all about that, correct me if I am wrong)

3. About all the apps that go with Leopard (iTunes, iMovie, Quick Time Player)... Do you suggest me to update them as soon as I install 10.5.3 or to update to 10.5.7 first and then install all the application updates?

OS X :: Reinstalling Snow Lepoard

Aug 27, 2009

Apple have informed me that if I upgrade to 10.6 from 10.5 and at some stage in the future I wanted to re-install 10.6, I would first have to re-install 10.5 and then upgrade again to 10.6. Is that honestly correct? I only thought Microsoft did stuff like that!
