I have no idea what's wrong. I tried reinstalling os x with no luck. 21.5" 3.06GHz 4GB ram 500GB hd iChat keeps disconnecting, pages and youtube vids load extremely slow(about 1min to load this post page).
Certain webistes like [URL], take ages to load after i login. I have cleaned my cache , deleted cookies,etc.... In the apple store everything works fine , but not at home. When using other PC's / notebooks¬† it all works fine, except my own Macbook. Other browsers on my Mc , have the same problem.
I'm going to try and keep this as simple as possible. Last night I went to use my imac and for some reason every wed page I would try and go to either wouldn't open, would time out, or would load so slowly as to be almost no use at all. I reset my modem (I use a wired, ethernet connection) and everything was fine with the internet connection (or so it seemed) because I checked to see if I was able to torrent for instance and that worked just fine. The problem seemes to be based solely around browsing the internet (using both safari and chrome).
For about a week or so now, my Safari has been loading webpages incredibly slowly. It will often display the message 'server cannot be found/reached'. I have absolutely no idea what's causing this. I know it's not my actual connection, because I can play World of Warcraft with an average latency of 60ms, and direct download large files at a speed I expect.
I copied my disc onto my hard drive when I first installed OS X [made a 10GB partition in DiskUtility] incase I needed the disc and wasn't at home.
Well, I don't have my disc, and won't have access to it for another week. I'm trying to set up a triple boot with OSX, Ubuntu, and W7. Can I load the Snow Leopard install DVD from that partition in my hard drive, while running Windows 7?
So I have a MBP 2010 model, and recently it froze, so I manually restarted the computer. After that, the gray Apple screen came up for about 2 minutes and shuts off. I have tried to repair my Snow Leopard install but Macintosh HD can't be changed. How can I reformat my drive? Or should I do something different?
I could use a bit of help updating my macbook from 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard. I have 10.4.11 and i'm updating to 10.6, Snow Leopard. I've already checked basic requirements, backed up and i'm ready to install.I chatted with a apple specialist when I purchased the dvd for snow leopard and asked if it was what i needed to upgrade all three of my macs; 2 running 10.5.8 and one running 10.4.11. They said yes. I had no trouble updating the machines running 10.5.8.But the one running 10.4.11 isn't so easy. The trouble is the install DVD will not boot and just shuts down the hard drives (the machine says 'restartto begin install' but when i restart the dvd spits out on restart). Does anyone know how to get the disk to install? Mounting the disk didnt work either, it allows me to begin the installation but then the machine reboots.
I'd done some research previously and was told by Apple that i needed to get the Box Set in order to upgrade my machine running 10.4.11. However according to apple's support forums url... the Snow Leopard upgrade should work. I just don't know if there are special steps.†
For some reason, certain websites (like IGN, Mac Rumor Forums, Gamespy) take 5 minutes or longer to load on my Mac Mini than on my other machines. I have a PC running Vista, Mac Book Pro, iPhone, and iPad and they have no issues loading these websites normally. Both my Mac Mini and Mac Book Pro are running the exact same setup and have 10.6.3. This happens with in both Safari and Firefox. It isn't my wireless router because the other machines are fine and don't have this issue. I did however reset the router a few times to see if that might be it... and no go. Still the same. I have the latest versions of the browsers too.
This problem is constant with no bearing on location, websites and about 75% of the images frequently won't load. When entering websites, maybe 10% of the time, the browser will tell me that the page is no good/can't find the server. When I come back later in the day I can view the site. Also with images, on blog websites, photosharing sites, or Facebook, some images will load but most won't.
Things I've already tried to fix the dilemna:
I have tried with both Safari and Google Crome.I have restarted my computer.I have restarted the browers.I have gone in to Sytem Prefences/Network and reestablished my internet connection.I have given Flash permission when it asks(although it usually doesn't ask on the websites I'm trying to access)
There are some sites, like url...that won't load properly in Safari, Chrome, nor Firefox. I'm not able to hover over my account to sign-out, as well as not able to paste links to get them to shorten it. The site loads fine on my iPhone and iPad, but not on my Macbook Pro.Other sites like Mashable, I'm not able to view any of the galleries.I've tried logging in as a guest, still the same issue. I even tried disabling ALL the plugins that are on the mac, still, same issue.

In February I bought a new Mac Book Pro that came loaded with OS X Lion.¬† I want to run Final Cut Pro on it.¬† I bought FCP on ebay but can't load it because it is a PowerPC app and Lion won't load it.¬† ¬†
I added a partition to my hard drive to load Snow Leopard, bought SL online and am trying to install SL.¬†
If I try to run the install app from within Lion I get this message:¬† "You can't use this version of the application install Mac OX X.app with this version of Mac OS X."¬† Then in small print this:¬† "You have Install Mac OS X.app 23.1"¬†
If I try to boot from the SL Install DVD I get this message:¬† "You need to restart your computer.¬† Hold down the Power button until it turns off, then press the Power button again."¬† I do this and it always comes back to this same message.¬†
I tried booting to the Recovery HD but can't get that to allow anything either.¬†
Firefox refuses to load swf on any website. I can view youtube just fine. This is what it looks like. The first pic is a article on gizmodo (I am sure most of you read it). The video is supposed to be where the white box is but it doesn't load. The second pic is supposed to be a music player on myspace. Before you ask, yes I did install flash correctly. I am computer savy. I don't have any problems on safari http://img.skitch.com/20090126-dkcb2...9euhkb5tgr.tif http://img.skitch.com/20090126-8umrs...9rx9795gys.tif
I have certain websites that just hang whenever I enter an area requiring a login.For example it happens when I log in to Facebook, or certain areas of Yahoo. It happens on both Safari 4.0.1/4.0.2 and FF 3.5. It's always the same, it just times out and then I get a message along the lines of "server reset the connection".
I also cannot send messages in Mail using the Yahoo server (smtp.yahoo.co.uk) even though Connection Doctor tells me I can connect fine. I'm convinced this is linked to the problem above. have a PowerMac G5 (Dual 2.3GHz PowerPC) and a current model MacBook Pro, both using 10.5.7. They are synced via MobileMe, and both experience the problems described above. Meanwhile my wife has a MacBook which experiences none of these issues even when visiting the websites using my login details, and working on the same wireless network/broadband provider.
I have tried clearing FF and Safari caches, I have tried deleting any cookies with Facebook or Yahoo in them, and I have tried deleting & recreating my SMTP server details, all to no avail.
I upgraded to AirPort Extreme from the previous router because my Mac would drop the wireless 802.11n connection way too often. I setup AirPort Extreme to connect through PPPoE to my optical fiber cable device. Since then the connection is fast and never drops. On the other hand it seems I cannot access some websites. These include quite a few domains, and also almost all https secured connections. For example, in a website like [URL] everything seems to go well until I need to access a secure page over https. Same on [URL]and several others. Switching back to the old modem seems to solve the issue, but then I get the old problem of the connection constantly dropping.
Some websites don't load in my browser or take ages to open examples are flickr.com , google maps, etc... Or they don't load at all. What is wrong with my mac?? I have cleaned my cache , browse history , etc.
I know this is probably a stupid question. I'm about to set up windows 7 on my iMac. I've recently updated to Snow leopard. My question is once I have windows 7 installed do I have to use the snow leopard disk, or the disk that came with my computer to load drivers?
I am running Snow Leopard on a new Power Mac which is part of a windows network. On the Windows server, there are a couple of shares that I would like the mac to use. I can manually connect to them and browse ok, but what I would really like to do is have them automatically load on startup and display on the desktop. I have tried connecting to the them and then dragging them into the login items, but on restart, they don't appear on the desktop.
I would like to delete a load of disk permissions. They are continually needing to be repaired and I don't recognize any of the names of the apps, and if I do, I would prefer to uninstall them. ¬†
Is this crazy? The main reason is that I am using drive genius 3 which continually monitors the health of the drive using 'drive pulse'. It comes up with 'critical' repairs needed each day and they are the same ones so I would prefer to just ditch them if possible? ¬†
Also, what I would really like to know is how I can use the command line to 'batch' delete these suckers.¬†

My web developer has given me a .sql file to load into MySQL. I have MySQL started with a folder selected and a password set from the Server Admin. However, that is all I know how to do. How do I get thie .sql loaded into the database or do I need to create a database. My website will not work without it.
My Macbook Pro was purchased in November 2010. Can't load Snow Leopard Have an iPhone 4s Want to sync calendar on my two devices.iCloud not a choice in my system preferences Can I do this with MobileMe?
After multiple updates failed to install on a restart, including a security and Safari update, many applications on my mac do not work.I am receiving error messages such as this:†[code] This leads me to believe that multiple frameworks went missing in the failed update; looking in the frameworks folder, the only ones there are iTunesLibrary.framework, NyxAudioAnalysis.framework, and PluginManager.framework. Where can I download these missing framework/fix the problem if there is more too it than that?†Finder, system profiler, system preferences all work. Activity monitor shows everything as normal.

Just installed a new router - a D-Link Dir-825. I am unable to load anything in Safari or Chrome, and Mail will not go online. Only Firefox works. I've flushed my DNS cache in Terminal (I think...) but that didn't work. D-Link does not "support Safari".
As part of Apple's plans to help trim the footprint of Mac OS X Snow Leopard, the new system will cease the customary installation of several gigabytes of printer drivers and instead load only the files necessary for existing devices, relying on Software Update to obtain new drivers in the future as needed.
Prepared for anything
Back in the late 80s, Apple began bundling PPD files for various PostScript printers with its System Software. The files identified features specific to each model, making it simple for users to take full advantage of each model. However, as the consumer market for printers expanded, expensive PostScript licensing was left behind for simpler and cheaper alternatives that relied on custom driver software unique to each printer manufacturer.
Microsoft began installing lots of third party printer drivers with the installation of Windows to make it simpler for users to install their printer without needing to obtain printer software themselves, a practice Apple also adopted. However, as printer manufacturers have expanded their printer software offerings to differentiate their hardware with special software features such as ink management and other add on utilities, the size of driver software has expanded rapidly.
Additionally, printer drivers are being updated more frequently and new printer models are appearing quickly enough to make it hard for operating system releases to stay current. Both Apple and Microsoft now support the ability of printer installation software to search for new or updated drivers online; Leopard began handling updates for HP drivers in 2007.
Just in time downloads
With the release of Snow Leopard this spring, Apple will put an end to the default installation of tons of drivers, according to people familiar with the latest test releases of the software. Instead, it will only install a select subset of drivers, including support for any currently attached printers or those that had been installed on the same Mac under previous versions of Mac OS X.
Sources say the system will review devices attached via USB and will scan the network for any printers advertised as available via Bonjour in order to create a short list of drivers that need to be installed. Any new printers that are attached after the installation of Snow Leopard will cause Software Update to check for drivers online.
This new policy will shave several unnecessary gigabytes from the Snow Leopard footprint, compounding the savings related to the new HFS+ file compression for compacting read only files and the compression and/or removal of unnecessary NIB files that will result in a greatly reduced size of applications on the new system.
Skinny new software
A similar practice has been put into place in GarageBand 09, which offers a series of free video instructions for learning how to play instruments. Rather than installing all of the videos by default, the new app allows users to download just the lessons they want, saving considerable disk space.
The same policy could also be applied to foreign language localization files and fonts, which currently consume lots of disk space but are only used by relatively small portions of the Mac OS X user base.
While software developers have historically relied on the luxury of constantly expanding, cheap hard drive space to ignore any need to be conservative in the amount of files loaded during installation, Apple's interest in deploying systems that use more expensive but faster SSD devices has resulted in new efforts to make Snow Leopard smaller and leaner than the system it replaces.
[URL] nor any twitter apps like tweetie or twitterific will load for me on my macbook pro since installing snow leopard.
I can login fine on my iphone and windows 7 pc on the same network. firewall is off on my mac. I have tried firefox and safari and clearing the cache. It just 'fails to open page' on safari and firefox. I have an AirPort Extreme router.
I have just upgraded to Snow Leopard and at the end of the upgrade the printer drivers failed to load. I have since updated them myself (Epson BX305) but still get an error message 'rasteroescpll failed'. I have an IMac previously running 5.8.0 and now running 6.3.0.
