OS X Mavericks :: Unable To Log Into IMessage Using AppleID With Special Character

Sep 9, 2014

Starting yesterday, at about 6pm CET, I am unable to log into iMessage on Mavericks (10.9.4) -- "Could not sign in.  Please check your network connection and try again."

I tried the following, to no avail:reset my AppleID password (and use the new password to try and log in)make sure the system timezone was correctquit iMessage, and rebootverify I could log into iMessage on my iPhone 

Other people around me on the same network can connect just fine, so I am suspecting I may have something to do with the ID itself, which contains a "+".

ITunes :: Cannot Unselect Search Field By Pressing Arrow Or Tab Keys

May 18, 2012

Very often I need to search a single track in an album and then I start my browsing just from that point, using the arrow keys. i.e. I did like this: select the search filed, type the keywords, select the track, empty the search field, press twice the tab key (one to activate the left column, the second one to activate the tracklist), in order to activate the selection I made and, eventually, use the arrow keys to browse the collection. Since some time ago, once that I've done my search, when I press the tab key, it activate the left column and then the tracklist, but it do not unselect the search field and so, if I use the arrow keys, the menu of the search field appears and there's no way to leave unselected the field.

OS X :: Apple Character Is Missing In Character Viewer

Jan 29, 2010

I use the Apple character in Twitter to distinguish myself as an Apple computer user. When someone asked me how I got that in my profile I went through the steps and found that the character was missing from the keyboard and character viewer. Did Apple remove it in Snow leopard or did I do something to lose it? If I can get it back how do I do that?

Mac Pro :: How Much DATA Do You Have On-line And How Full Is Your Total On-line Storage

Sep 6, 2009

Double poll here. There are two questions:
How much DATA do you have Oo-line?

This is data and not total capacity. This includes all your on-line data: music, images, video, the OS, all of it. It doesn't include back-up data even if it's on-line like Time Machine tho. Just active data.

And of the on-line storage devices used for that DATA totally, what % are they filled to?

For example if you had two 500 GB drives and about 400 GB of data you would answer:
"I have < 500 GB of DATA on-line." and,"My on-line storage is between 25% and 50% full.".

Mac Pro :: Problems Recording In Garage Band (line In, Line Out )

Jan 7, 2010

i'm having some issues recording in garage band which should hopefully be easy to clear up. i record an instrumental track into garage band through the line-in jack in the back. the track shows up in garage band just fine and plays, but i'm running into trouble recording while that track is playing. i plug my headphones in so i can try to hear the track while i am recording vocals, but i am unable to hear the track. i checked the inputs/outputs in system preferences and output is set to headphones, microphone is set to line in. so i'm not too sure what it could be.

Mac Pro :: No Sound From Line Out And A Red Light In Optical Line Out

Aug 2, 2009

I've had this problem since Friday with my Mac Pro (March 2009) and haven't been able to solve it.

On Friday my speakers suddenly stopped working. After first having confirmed that the speakers were working with another source, I tried headphones both in frontal headphone slot and with the analog line out in the back, both without success. There's a red light in the optical audio out, indicating that it's on for some reason, although I have selected different audio out source. The internal speaker works just fine, only the normal audio out doesn't give me anything.

I found a thread in the MBP section similar to this problem, but solutions for MBP didn't work.

Mac Pro :: Route The Line-in Audio To Line-out On 10.6.8?

Feb 29, 2012

Seems like it should be a straight forward deal, but it's not obvious how to make this happen.  I can tell the audio is coming in, as the input levels are reflected under System Pref's.  But I can't hear the audio on the line-out speakers and there doesn't seem to be an option to explicitly route the audio.

OS X :: Looking For Something Special About Quicksilver

May 10, 2009

I've read tutorials on it, Ive downloaded it, played with it, uninstalled it. I have to be missing something here. To me it looks just like a more complicated way to get to programs and things you want. What am I missing? What does it really do? I don't get why everyone is so in love with this program. Everything online I find about it gushes about how great it is but always ends up boiling down to "it helps you open applications faster".

Mac Pro :: Special Screwdriver - Torx Or Hex?

Sep 18, 2008

I just acquired a G4 Power Mac and have noticed some odd screws I don't have tools for; maybe someone here has dealt with this before. I have searched the forums here and found a previous discussion about the main case screws near the handles. Someone said that they are 2.5mm hex, but on my case a 3mm hex fit perfectly. But the problem I have is with the really bitty hex screws that hold the keyboard together. The guy at the local hardware store was convinced that they are Torx, but the only torx we could get to fit, a T5, was rather loose and has now rounded off to the point where it won't do anything. And I am now convinced these ARE hex. But the size is in the 1.25mm range and I can't find any actual tools like that. I know for sure that .050" (1.27mm) is too big. The T5 torx measures .048". I suppose that the simple thing to do is file a .050" one down just enough to fit. Anybody know? There must be some special Apple tool for this.

Windows On Mac :: What So Special About Win7

Jan 24, 2009

What's so special about Windows 7? I hear a lot of people saying really good things about it and some even go as far to say its better than OS X. Now, I haven't actually used it, but the new taskbar just seems like its a blown up version of quick launch. You see pictures of what windows you have open instead of words. Big deal. I have to admit the whole dragging windows to the edge of the screen thing is sort of cool. But just that won't make most people upgrade. Its nice that it's not supposed to throw stupid security messages at your face all day, though. What's the huge difference between Vista and 7?

Software :: IMac DVD Special OS X 10.2.8

Sep 29, 2005

After I have had the mac off overnight upon startup I hear the chime and the mac startups, but the screen remains grey. I did discover that if I press the green button on the iMac and put the unit to sleep for just a moment then awaken it, the monitor is fine. Tried zapping PRAM, fixing permissions, trashing system.plist. I thought it might be an energy saver issue but I cannot find the preference file for that.

Mac Pro :: PC Video Card - Special Drivers?

Nov 6, 2010

Last month, my mac pro stopped working. I can still hear the chime but nothing loads in the scree. So i brought it to a service center and they told me it's problem with the video card and that I have to pay 500 dollars for that. I am hesitant to shell out that big amount of a cash. Been using the Mac for 3 years now. the video card is nvidia p435(says on the sticker) which i think is a 7300 gt. My question is, can I use PC video cards for this cause I find the similarity. Since it's PCI-e then it should fit and work. My only concern is if they is a special driver that needs to be installed.

Mac Pro :: Using OS X 10.5.8 Screen As Monitor - Special Software

Dec 24, 2010

I am very untechnical so much of what I have read on this matter is above my head, but in simple language, if I buy a new MAc Book Pro is there any way that I can use the 21.5" screen on my 2005 iMAc OS X as a monitor? I asked someone at Apple Store and was told that though later models were fully compatible, for one that old I would need special software, but he couldn't say what. An earlier thread posted last year that I didn't fully understand suggests that I don't need software.

Applications :: Rip Special Features Using Handbrake

Apr 5, 2010

I'm trying to rip a certain section of the "special features" disc that came with the original movie. The original movie is on the first DVD, and the second disc is all the bonus material. I tried ripping the special features disc in Handbrake, and I only got part of the bonus material, and not the material in particular I wanted. I've looked through all the source titles, and they only show part of the features. How do I get to the features I want using Handbrake?

MacBook Air :: 9 Key Keeps Randomly Pressing By Itself

I've been using my Macbook Air for a while now. I noticed while I was working on my laptop, my 9 key keeps pressing by itself. I've tried to clean under the key and hitting it for the random keypress to stop, but it still continues. I would type somehow like this: 99h99e99999l99o9 or even worse.

Software :: Use Spanish Or Other Special Characters In Documents?

Mar 31, 2009

I have a problem writing documents in Spanish and it is that I don't know how to use Spanish special characters and symbols used in MS Word, Text Edit or any other text editor in a Mac computer. I have to send status reports in Spanish to my Hispanic customers and I need to learn this before my work accumulates up to a point where I won't be able to catch up.

On a Windows PC it is relatively easy by using a combination of the ALT key and a three digits number that correspond to the letter and then it appears. How do I do it in a Mac?
