OS X :: Websites And Programs Aren't Reading System Specs Correctly

Dec 20, 2010

I've got a 2 year old Macbook running on OS X 10.5.8. I've been having this problem with my computer and it's hard to explain...

I went to go install Google Chrome but then the site reads:

"Your operating system is not supported.
Google Chrome is available for Mac OS X 10.5 or later, Intel only".
I have 10.5 or later and my mac is intel based.

OS X :: Stacks - Icons Aren't Displayed Correctly

Oct 19, 2010

I am having a problem with the stack feature on Snow Leopard. For some reason most of the icons inside of my stacks are just displayed as a grey box with a dotted white line around it. As far as I can tell this only affects grid and fan mode.

Sometimes when I wait for some time (30 secs and more) or open and close the stack a couple of times the icons will eventually display correctly. I have already tried resetting the Pram and rebooting, as well as deleting the stacks and readding them.

MacBook Pro :: Programs Requiring Internet Aren't Working, Even Though Internet Is Connected?

May 4, 2012

My Macbook Pro was working fine when suddenly Safari froze, so I forced quit. After opening Safari again, the page just stayed white and wouldn't load. None of my other programs requiring internet are working either (ie. AIM, Skype), even though my internet connection is listed as connected and other devices using Wifi are working perfectly. Could this be some sort of virus?

OS9/OS8/System 7 :: Reading Windows Floppy Disks On Mac Classic?

Apr 23, 2012

I am in the process of pulling the data off of my collection of floppy disks. A lot of them are the really ancient 800K kind so I am using a Mac Classic II running System 7.0.1 to access them. The process is going well but occasionally I've run across a PC formatted floppy that the Mac won't read. It just says: This disk is not a Macintosh diskette. Do you want to Initialize it? So how do I give my Classic the ability to access these PC format diskettes?

Software :: How To Uninstall System Programs Like Little Snitch

Apr 15, 2005

So far I haven't seen any uninstall options in all the software that I've installed, so if I were to uninstall programs that are linked to the Start Up list, how should I do it? Can I just delete them from the HD? Because for Windows, messing with files that are related to the registry or system can really cause big problems for the computer.

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 :: Update Operating System To Snow Leopard / Disk Is Not Reading In Disk Drive

Jun 4, 2014

I have an old Macbook via 2007 and I'm trying to update my operating system (currently OS 10.5.8) to Snow Leopard, but the disk is not reading in the disk drive. And unfortunately, Snow Leopard is only on a DVD, it can't be downloaded.I figure I have 2 choices:

1) take it in and spend $49 to have them do diagnostics and then tell me they probably need to replace the superdriveĀ 

2) I could buy an external optical drive. But I would need to know which one would be compatable with my old *** Macbook.

MacBook :: Unable To Open Programs - Programs Are Not Displaying

Mar 25, 2010

I have a question about using my new samsung tv as a monitor for my macbook. I have all the cables and such and my TV reads the computer. It actually shows the desktop background, mouse, and the toolbar on the tv...
BUT....when i try and open a program such as safari or itunes it does not display the program on the monitor but rather on my macbook screen. It shows the program open on the tv monitor but it shoots off the screen and then opens on the macbook screen.

Also the mouse disappears from the tv monitor screen on the left side only, and when it does it becomes visible back on the macbook screen! Any tips or suggestions on how to get the programs to show up on the monitor instead of the macbook screen?

PowerPC :: How Would I Go About Checking If My Ram Was Within Specs

Sep 11, 2006

My tibook has been having kernel panics (Both with the polite message telling you to shut down your screen, and the one where a bunch of code rolls down the screen and it freezes). Also the computer sometimes just plain freezes sometimes and it also just shutsdown randomly. What could be the problem? i tried both sticks independently and it still happens, unless both the ram sticks are bad.How would i go about checking if my ram was within specs?

PowerPC :: Don't Understand Different G5 Specs?

Jan 7, 2007

I'm in the market for a second hand G5 with Applecare. I will be using it for my recording studio as I'm sick of PCs. There are some great deals on eBay and my limit is looking around ļæ½1000.I don't understand the different specs, some can take 4 gig ram, some 8 some 16. Some are Dual Core, Dual, Quad. Which is the most powerful? What's better Dual Core or Dual CPU (I take it this is right?)

I have an Athlon 3200 XP 2.21ghz with a gig of ram right now. What Powermac G5 is similar to that speed? Also, anything else I should look out for when buying a Powermac G5?

Software :: Specs For A Computer Behind The TV?

Jan 26, 2009

We're dropping our Dishnetwork subscription this month in hopes of getting our content from both our AppleTV and also a MacMini, which we hope to purchase soon. I've been looking at a number of MacMini's on EBay and via CraigsList, but I wanted to know what you guys suggest as far as processor and memory for a Mini just to serve video to the TV. My goal is to watch videos from iTunes and Boxee primarily, but also from the web as need be. I'm looking at a number of 1.2Ghz systems with 512 Megs/Ram, and given this computer will only be used for video would this be suffice? I dont' know if we need the 'latest and greatest' or even a dual core system, even though I do want something with OSX 10.5 for sure.
