OS X :: Get Alert Message With Red Sign When Boot Up

Aug 14, 2009

I have a Power Mac G4 Quicksilver 933Mhz running OS X 10.4.11. Ever since I upgraded from Vs. OS X 10.4, I have had problems with my browsers. When I boot up I get an alert message with a red sign that shows for about two or three quick seconds. I am not able to read what it states. Can someone tell me how to bring up this alert message. I think it might have something to do with how my browser is not functioning properly. I can't load up some pages with my Safari or FireFox browsers; I get a blank screen, but the URL shows up with some additional information. I also have a 2009 Mac Pro that does not have this problem with loading up web site pages.

OS X Mountain Lion :: ICal - Calendar No Longer Pops Up Message Alert

Aug 31, 2014

I have used iCal and now Calendar for many years. For every event, I choose to show "Message with Sound" for the alert. In the past few weeks, I noticed I no longer get any on-screen pop-up message. Not sure of the proper term for that, but my choice for each event is the same: "Message with Sound", so maybe it is called "message". I do get the sound alert, just am now missing the tiny even message window that used to pop up. 

Here is an odd chain of events...

I looked in ~/Preferences to try trashing something, found only "com.apple.CalendarAgent.plist" as an obvious choice. I expected to find com.apple.Calendar.plist, but no such file. When I launched Calendar, it showed no change at all in any of my preference settings, and I do have several settings that are not default, such as "Start week on Monday" and "Alerts > Event: At time of event" instead of 15 minutes before. 

After re-launching Calendar, I noticed a new file, "com.apple.Calendar.plist" appeared in ~/Preferences. I always use column view, so it isn't possible that i missed it before; this file was not there before. Nonetheless, the alert sounds with no message window issue continues. How to restore the alert window?

OS X :: Stop/Prohibitory Sign At Boot Up?

Feb 15, 2010

I have a black MacBook that I got about 2 years ago, running OS X 10.5. I had about 10 GB free space. It's been working fine until this unfortunate event. Let me explain.

I was recently working with my mac as usual (browsing the web, downloading torrents, reading an ebook, ect). I tried to load [URL] in firefox, when it froze. Nothing new, so I tried to open up force quit. Nothing I clicked on responded. It was frozen. I also heard some weird "tinking" noises from inside the machine that I had never heard before. So, I inferred I should force shut down. I held down the power button, and it turned off. I hit it again to turn it back on. I saw a grey screen and an apple and heard the"dinggggg" noise we've all come to love like usual. But, suddenly the apple changes to a circle with a line through it, which I've dubbed a stop sign. It just stays like this. I can turn it off, and try again and the same thing happens. I've tried it like 10 times. (I know, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results.

This is getting my adrenaline pumping, and I can't figure out what to do. Should I reset the NVRAM and PRAM like Apple says? I'm at a loss. Right now I'm using my friend's computer (running Vista ugh) to type this.

Intel Mac :: Boot Partition Error Message - Mid 2010 I7 Will Not Boot Past The Apple Logo

Apr 8, 2012

My mid 2010 iMac i7 will not boot past the apple logo? I'm running 10.7.3. I have tried restoring from TM backup from recovery mode (worked the last time this happened) however upon completion it returns to the recovery screen? I made a disk of Lion when I downloaded the first time (followed same instructions sourced from numerous websites) which does not seem to work when i set to start up from this disk, just gets to the grey screen and flicks between the apple logo, a folder icon with a question mark and the circle with line through? Now I can't eject the disk either, a message appears that system can't eject and to make sure all applications are closed? Not sure how to go about closing these applications without being able to start the system? When I tried booting from the Macintosh HD I got a message that the boot cache partition was faulty? I have ran disk permissions etc all ok.

Windows On Mac :: Error Message 4 For Boot Camp Partition

Dec 8, 2008

When i boot into Vista at the boot ing Windows Vista black screen, i get an error message that says... Warning: unrecognized partition table for drive 80. please rebuild it using a Microsoft-compatible FDISK tool(err=4) System tyhpe is NTFS, partition type 0x7 then it goes, and lists that a couple more times, then it boots into Vista. I just had an internal drive crash, so I purchased a 1TB and installed it into my 2ghz iMac. Everything went great, and now I am in the midst of reinstalling all my apps. I then partitioned the drive for 53 gigs with Boot Camp and installed Vista 32bit with sp1. And when I boot into the Boot Camp partition, that is the error I get, but then it finally after listing that about 4 or so times boots fine into Vista. I have installed many things now on that partition under Windows and everything seems perfect with it, it is just I get that error.

Windows On Mac :: Creating New Boot Camp Partition - Error Message

Jul 18, 2009

"The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again." Does it really mean I have to partition my whole hard drive and then reinstall everything? I'm hoping I'm just misinterpreting....

I have had my uMBP for about two weeks, I boot camped, decided I needed more space for windows, used Winclone to clone my windows partition, merged the windows partition back into OS X, and now I get an error message when I try to repartition. Please tell me there is an easy fix. BTW, my harddrive is 250GB, there is 87GB free, and I am only trying to create an 81GB partition.

OS X :: Can't Identify Alert Sound

Mar 30, 2008

I began hearing a sound about every minute that I assume is some kind of alert or notification that something needs attention but I can't determine what it is. It sounds like a single pick of a guitar string. I recently downloaded an upgrade to microsoft office but can't recall if it began right after that or not.

MacBook Pro :: Command And Conquer, Red Alert 3

Nov 19, 2010

I have had my MBP for about 6 months now and decided to treat myself to a game. Being a fan of C&C and Red Alert, I thought I would try the new Red Alert 3 game. I am using the game with the built in trackpad. The problems occured on working out the controls. I have worked out how to use the right mouse function but I am struggling with the following:

ROTATE CAMERA - In the main menu, I go to 'Tutorials', then 'Intro into the Basics', and then I get started with the tutorial. After about the second or third tutorial prompt it talks you through how to rotate the camera using the middle mouse button. MBP do not have a middle mouse button. I have tried every combination of keyboard functions and nothing works.

Can somebody out there help get me through this stage and tell me what I need to press for the middle mouse button function on a MBP?

Applications :: No Alert Sounds In MSN Any Longer

Oct 2, 2009

I have a iMac g5 and have problems with MSN messenger. Since about 1 week, the sound alert when a contact in my list comes online, doesn't sound any longer. All the other sound alerts still work normally and all the alerts in MSN preference are activated and work when trying them out. I just did a complete reinstall of Leopard and only did the system update and installing the msn messenger and still, that same problem is there. Why is this happening? Is this a bug in msn that started recently?

OS X Mavericks :: How To Set Alert Option Shortcuts

Sep 1, 2014

In calendar when I go to create a new event, and set an alert there is a list of options. I was wonder how to customize/add an option to say something like "1 day before (3:15PM)", so that I wouldn't have to re-enter it each time because I use this alert frequently, but not on every event. I have my calendar synced to my gmail as well and I have OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 on a Macbook Pro.

What's the default alert sound in snow leopard?

I know it's a dumb question, but I've recently noticed that my mac has been making the most annoying sound quite frequently (i.e. basso). Just wondering what the default was as I'm fairly sure it hasn't always made this sound.

OS X :: Alert Sounds (all The Stock Ones - No Custom Ones) Messed Up

Oct 16, 2010

All of a sudden my alert sounds (all the stock ones, no custom ones) are messed up. The one I use the most (Basso) just sounds like static now when it is triggered (e.g. backspacing at the prompt in terminal). Also, the individual .aiff files will not play in any player. Haven't been able to find anything remotely like this with extensive googling. System specs in signature. [edit] the "pop" sounds you get when you adjust the volume is stuffed up too!
