OS X :: Reinstall 10.5 Leopard Over Upgraded MBP Snow Leopard?

Oct 31, 2009

I am having way too many problems with Snow Leopard... I lost communications with two printers in my office, lost emails, and just having way too many things to fix (should have waited). Can I reinstall OSX 10.5 (that came with my MBP 15)? I still have the original disks that came with the MBP.

MacBook Air :: Upgraded To Snow Leopard On Rev B MBA?

Oct 7, 2009

I upgraded to Snow Leopard three weeks ago on my rev B MBA but am thinking about downgrading to Leopard again. Reasons:

- Have not seen any 'improvement' from Snow Leopard
- Battery time is slightly worse(!)
- 'Idle' Temperature is also higher compared to Leopard

So I am curious if anyone has seen improvements when going to Snow Leopard or if you are planning to go back to regular Leopard?

When I quit iTunes the window closes and the glowing dot fades out. Then it comes straight back. Also I thought iTunes was now 64-bit? But Activity Monitor says its 32-bit.

OS X :: Safari Crashing Since Upgraded To Snow Leopard

Sep 8, 2009

Ever since I upgraded to Snow Leopard, I've had Safari crashing issues when performing certain tasks. One example is when trying to post image files to places like E-Bay or online forums. When I click "Add image" and select the file to be added, Safari crashes with an error message. The problem is easily repeated. I thought Safari was supposed to be "Crash Proof". I actually have more problems with it now than I did before.

OS X :: Upgraded To Snow Leopard - Cannot Share Canon Printer Via Bonjour

Dec 25, 2009

I'v been running Leopard on my wife's MacBook Pro since we got it in May. We have a Canon MF4150 attached to it via USB and have been sharing it out from the Mac. I have been using Bonjour and have been printing just fine from both my XP machine and my daughter's Vista machine. I just upgraded to Snow Leopard. I upgraded the drivers to the Snow Leopard compatible drivers from Canon and everything prints fine from the Mac. However, whenever we try to print from one of the Windows machine I get this popup on the Mac: "Canon UFR II Printer Driver key value specified for ticket does not exist.: 15512" And the printer is now "paused" whatever that means. When I try to unpause it, I get that some popup error. I end up having to delete the printer and re-add it to get printing (from the Mac) working again. I've deleted and re-added the printer many times. I even went to far as to remove the drive on the Mac manually (according to Canon's directions) and reinstall. I've deleted/recreated the printers on Windows using the Bonjour wizard.

OS X :: Upgraded To Snow Leopard/can't Connect To Router Or Any Wireless Network

Feb 8, 2010

After extensive Googling, I need to take a break, and find out if someone with more experience knows what I can try next...

I'm not the best when it comes to Networks, or even router configuration. I'll just put that out there, in case I've missed something obvious.

My router connection (DLink 2640B) was working perfectly fine before I upgraded to Snow Leopard. Now I cannot connect to any wireless network, and I cannot connect to the router administration page, either


The internet connection still works fine on two other laptops. Also, I can connect this iMac via the ethernet cable.

I've tried deleting the files NetworkInterfaces.plist, com.apple.network.identification.plist, and preferences.plist; I've tried rebooting my router; I've tried creating a new network. Airport sees all the networks, tries to connect, then it just says that it fails.

I have an Epson NX 510 printer that I have been able to print on easily up until a few weeks ago. I have upgraded my Macbook Pro to OS X Lion so I got new printer software and still my computer wouldn't recognize the printer all the time. Sometimes I can print and sometimes I can't. What can I do?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Upgraded From 10.5.3 To 10.6.8 Now Printers HP5550 And HP940c Will Not Print From This

Jul 3, 2012

Upgraded from 10.5.3 to 10.6.8. Now printers HP5550 and HP940c won't print from my MacBook 1.1, purchased on 11.09.06. Went to Gutenprint and downloaded the GIMP and XQuark apps. but they just messed up my system and I trashed them. The HP printers say the drivers cannot be changed. I read in Apple's small brochure that "Snow Leopard makes sure you have the most up-to-date printer driver. If not, it downloads the newest version." This did NOT happed. I also have a MacBook Pro 7,1 and the printers work fine with that.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Cannot Install - How To Reinstall

Nov 18, 2010

Long story short, wanted to reinstall the OS cos it was acting up, performance-wise. SuperDrive hasn't functioned in years, so that's a no. Remote Install via PC doesn't work, this feature is limited to MacBook Airs. And finally, an external DVD drive didn't do the job, cos even after starting install - once it reboots, something in the OS tells it not to read from the external. Hours were put into these attempts!

Is there any other possible way to reinstall Snow Leopard?

OS X :: Will Snow Leopard Reinstall All Applications

Aug 21, 2009

I was just wondering if when I install Snow Leopard if it will remove all the Leopard applications and replace them with Snow Leopard-formatted applications, or if it will just edit the applications to work with Snow Leopard. Photo Booth is broken on my computer and I don't want to Archive and Install unless it's the absolute last resort.

OS X :: Time To Reinstall Snow Leopard

Jul 31, 2010

Got a kernel panic. I believe it be caused by a small piece of software that powers some touch screen technology that my company works with - software I was testing with my MacBook. As with Audacity though, sadly, some apps just don't translate well over to Mac. The uninstaller won't work. Also, my drive is seeking way too much, and I've got a lot of clutter. This image on my 17" is actually a holdover from my 13" over a year ago. Kudos to Apple for the seamless transition, but I think it's time for a clean slate.

Here's my challenge.
I'm not worried about the apps. I've got a tally of what I need and I can go get them again pretty easily. I'm also not worried about custom configurations - the dock was easy to tweak as was some of the settings. What I need to make sure I grab is the files that are not system files. Instead of restoring from Time Machine, I plan to reinstall the OS completely fresh, then install the latest versions of the apps, then copy back over my files. According to what I've read on Migration Assistant (and I did MRoogle it first), there is not an easy way to selectively pick and choose files that I want to migrate. Is that accurate?

Software :: How To Reinstall Snow Leopard?

Jan 25, 2010

It looks like I'm going to have to reinstall OS X on my laptop because it's just generally unstable. I just have a question about the upgrade disk that I bought for $30 from apple.

On Windows 7, if you purchase the upgrade disk, it even allows you to reinstall a fresh copy of windows as long as your able to present a vista disk and show that you own a copy. Is that the same for Snow leopard? Or do I have to reinstall OS X Leopard and then proceed to upgrade?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Killed My IMac And Won't Reinstall

Oct 6, 2009

After my intel iMac froze when running Snow Leopard, I was forced to restart it, and it turned out the HD was corrupted. But after erasing it and performing repair disk, everything is now ok. But since the failure it refuses to reinstall usually giving the message "an error occured when intalling Mac OS X"

For the last few, very frustrating days, I've tried everything I have read on the net: resetting PRAM, checking the HD is set as GUID, erasing and repairing the HD numeous times, performing hardware tests. Even slaughtering farm yard animals. Basically everything. And still it won't install.

I really am at my wits end, and to make matters worse, the genius bar here in Tokyo is so busy I can't get a reservation til Friday evening.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Reinstall Lexmark Driver

Apr 6, 2012

I need help to reinstall the software for my Lexmark Z615 printer.  Due to other problems on the MacBook, I had to wipe the hard drive and start over.  When I did, I could not find the CD-ROM with the software for the printer.  I am still looking for it.   I then went to the Lexmark website and downloaded the "Lexmark Utility Web Installer.dmg" for the Z600 series.   I opened that file and activated the "Z600 Series Utility."  That led me to a window that asked for the "printer software."  I looked at the list of "printer software" offered by the utility, and none of them was for the Z615.  I chose another one more or less at random and tried to print with it.  Of course, the printer did not operate.  I have gone into "printer setup," and here is where I am:

I am at the limit of what I know about setting up printers.  Does anyone have any advice for what I should do next to get the printer to operate?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Reinstall System Fonts

Apr 19, 2012

Trouble with fonts from the "Get Go". Now fonts are disappearing in my Adobe CS5 font lists while I'm working. Noticed in my System Fonts folder some fonts I had not noticed before. Is there any way to reinstall my system fonts without reinstalling the entire system. Also all the fonts  in my system folder seem to be Windows True Type fonts. Is this correct?
