OS X V10.7 Lion :: MBP Stuck On Login Screen / Password Loop After Latest Update

Apr 3, 2012

I just literally updated my macbook pro to the latest version of Lion, today 4/3/12 and now it's just stuck on the main log in page for lion. As in, I type in my password, it thinks for two seconds, goes black, and has the log in page again. It just loops. No end in site.I've rebooted in safe mode, run disk utitily, and repaired the disk... but no dice, still. It repairs the disk, fine right? When I reboot in regular mode, it just goes back to the password/login screen loop.

MacBook Pro :: Stuck In Loop At Login After 10.6.4 Update

Jun 17, 2010

This is my first mac, I installed the 10.6.4 update the other day and restarted, since then it has been on or sleeping. I just shut it down and turned it on again and it's asking for my password. Each time I enter it goes to load and then comes back to the log in screen. I know I have the write password because it's a simple 4 digit one that I use for my bank account and if I enter anything else the box shakes and asks me to re-enter it. How do I log in?

OS X :: 10.2 Password Reset - Computer Stuck On Login Screen

Apr 6, 2009

I have a colleague who is still running 10.2 (yea I know, time to upgrade, but they haven't felt the need for it yet I guess). Anyway, someone changed and forgot, or someone did it to be a jerk, either way they are unable to update any software or even log in. Just wondering how to rest the password. The computer is stuck on the log in screen currently and they can't access anything.

OS X :: MacBook Stuck In Infinite Reboot Loop After 10.5.8 Update?

Aug 13, 2009

I got a 1 TB Western Digital external last night and had left it on all night so that Time Machine could back me up a few times. Then this morning, I had disconnected the drive and decided that I ought to update to 10.5.8 because Software update had told me to the day before. So I did, and I walked out of the room after it started installing the update. Then I walked back in when I first heard the startup chime and the fans were running at 6000 rpm and the screen showed the Apple and the daisy wheel. It proceeded to turn itself off, and repeat the process, always getting stuck at the Apple logo screen. So I tried booting it up in safe mode, but nothing changed; it never got past the apple screen. Then I booted from the install disc and used disk utility to verify the disk and repair the disk permissions. I tried starting it up a couple of times after that and nothing had changed. So I booted from the install disc again and was going to reinstall Leopard, but I decided to restore from one of the pre-10.5.8 Time Machine Backups.

Software :: Login Loop After Shutting Down Computer During Update Install

May 31, 2008

I recently installed Leopard. On my way to bed I saw that there was an update to be installed. I clicked install, but the install took to long (and was being executed in a special screen after the shut down of the computer, so there were no annulation options) and I was so annoyed with the length of the installation that I shut my computer down. A big no, so it seems, because the next morning when I booted my computer, the login screen appeared. I set up-auto login, so seeing a login window was strange. When I entered my correct password, I first saw a blue screen and then returned to the log-in screen. There appears to be no way for me to log-in.

Things I've tried: safe boot, booting with the install DVD (I checked the harddrive for any problems, there were none) and booting while pressing an interesting variety of keys. With the same result: none. I tried doing the root-user thing, but to no avail. I think I don't have root user selected in finder. The updated I tried to install was the last one seeded by apple, I think it was the 10.5.3 update; there were three files to be installed. My computer is and intel iMac from the first quarter of 2007.

OS X :: IMac Screen Black. It Got Stuck In A Loop And Froze.

Jul 30, 2010

I was playing Diablo II and my screen froze, and the same half second blip of sound kept playing over and over. I couldn't even force quit, so I held down the power button until it turned off.

Now, it won't turn on. When I press the power button, there is no chime. Oddly there are an inordinate number of fan wooshes. Like, I hear a woosh from the right, which is normal, but then I hear a woosh from the left, then another in the middle! I am being bombarded with wooshes!I've tried holding alt, or holding shift, or holding alt+s while starting up. No dice, although I do get fewer fan blasts, which is normal.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Address Book Stuck In ICloud Loop

Jun 20, 2012

My address book has suddenly gone haywire. It contains nothing 'on this mac' and seems to be stuck in a loop of downloading from iCloud - it gets a few contacts, then more, then yet more, then all, then back to just some and goes through the cycle all over again. Looking at the plist files in the library com.apple.addressbook.plist keeps vanishing and reappearing. I've tried quitting address Book, deleting the plist files (all of them) then reopening, but problem persists. I've tried turning off the iCloud sync for Address Book, whereupon it asks me if I want to keep a local copy: I say yes, but nothing is copied. Turn it on again, it syncs and starts looping all over again.

MacBook Pro :: Lion Loop-freezes At Session Startup Login On 15”

Apr 10, 2012

Notebooks affected by this troubleshoot:Macbook Pro 15" 6,2 Mid 2010 (OS 10.7.3) with all Apple updates installed - 2,66Ghz Core i7 - Apple SSD 128GBMacbook Pro 15" Late 2011 (OS 10.7.2) - 2,4Ghz Core i7 - standard specs Troubleshoot : At startup, Lion freezes before the user is able to type his login/password. We see the login prompt interface of Lion, but can't even move mouse cursor.Keyboard's inactive too because system is frozen.So you must force a shutdown.And it's a loop-freezes. You'll try several times to boot your laptop before it will succeed to open. (it's a 5-times boot to succeed - average) I've tried several times: P-Ram reset, repair the permissions of Macintosh HD with latest Lion recovery & from an external boot too.None of this has solved this issue. I'm sure I'm not the only one who saw that issue. Have to boot 5 or 10 times his Macbook Pro to succeed a boot is not a normal use

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Installer Stay Stuck On Password Enter Screen When Installing Apps?

Apr 11, 2012

When installing apps through Installer (from .dmg disk images and .pkg packages), everything works smoothly until it asks me for a password. When I enter it, Installer goes back to the screen before it asked me for the password. When I click next, it asks me for my password, and the cycle repeats. I tried removing my password to no avail. I can install .pkg files from the sudo installer -pkg command. I dont know how to do this for installers that are in app form.

Software :: Mac OS X Stuck On Blue Login Screen

Aug 31, 2010

My Mac OS x is stuck on the blue login screen. I have tried unplugging, cmd-alt-p-r which still takes me to the login screen, held down until I heard the chime three times as suggested but went to login screen. Tried going in to safe mode by holding down shift key at start up still took me to login screen. Tried to fix with boot disc and nothing comes up. By the way I wasn't really doing anything. Was checking my emails but hadn't even clicked on one when the screen totally froze. When I powered down it came back to email page. I had to force a shutdown several times and no can't get past login screen.

OS X :: Upgrading From 10.2.8 To 10.3 - Stuck In Loop

Apr 19, 2009

I was trying to upgrade my girlfriend imac g3 500mhz from os 10.2.8 to 10.3 . The installer soon told me that I needed a firmware upgrade and quit, and restarted the computer. I then got stuck in a bit of a loop and had to use a paperclip to get the disk out. Now when the imac is started, for a couple of seconds a small icon of the os face (?) appears and flashes to a small icon of a folder with a question mark on it (that scared me) but then is seems to start up and run as normal! I've turned the computer on a couple of times now and it does exactly the same thing every time. This flashing image is worrying me, I've given up on the idea of installing os10.3 but have I damaged this IMac?

MacBook :: Stuck At Grey Apple Screen / Login Window At Startup?

May 9, 2012

recently a friend of mine offered to update my 2009 MacBook to Mac osx Lion. when I received the computer back from him, it required a rather large update that has put my MacBook in a terrible state.  

upon rebooting from the update, it froze at the grey Apple loading screen, and of course I thought nothing of it and gave it a little restart. Since then I cannot get it past the grey screen or the login window. it seems as though I cannot type in my password or click 'sleep' or any option the window gives me. I've been working on this issue all day, and I've tried countless things from the apple support community, with no avail.  

I've tried clearing the cache, I've tried safe mode, I've tried the command+option+control+enter trick on the login page, I'm even trying to boot from the install disc my friend gave me...and it's just refusing to move past the grey screen.

PowerPC :: G3 Stuck In Rebooting Loop

Oct 22, 2009

My G3 keeps repeatedly rebooting. It goes through the loading process, but when it comes time to give you the desktop, it shuts down and restarts all over againl. As it boots up, a double image that you can't read comes up on the monitor, along with a solid color bar that separates the desktop image in two. I have two internal harddrives and changed it to reboot from the second harddrive, thinking that might be the problem. Immediately after doing this, it rebooted fine one time, but now is caught in the reboot loop again. When I startup from the install disk, the image is fine on the screen, as is the startup itself and when I run disk doctor, it says both drives are fine. I homeschool and would like to keep using all of the classic educational software on it for my 5 year old. It's running 9.2.2, 256mb memory 9gig drive is current booting drive, other one is 2gig.

OS X :: Macbook Pro Won't Boot - Stuck In Loop

May 19, 2010

This morning I went to use my laptop, Screensaver passsword box came up and it wouldn't recognise my password at all, So i rebooted. Now my macbook doesn't get any further then the apple logo with the progress wheel then after a while it reboots. So far i've tried the following:

1.)Reset PRAM
2.)Ran Disk Util from install disk and repaired disk permissions
3.) Booted into Safe mode

None of the above have made any difference at all? I thought about "repairing" the install of os x but the version on my disc is older than the version on the laptop so it won't let me?

IMac PPC :: G5 Stuck On A Reboot Loop

Jun 4, 2012

I received an iMac G5 from this old couple, they were going to throw it out, but all it needed was a power supply which I bought and replaced. It's been about 9 months and everything worked great, no problems whatsoever. 

Three days ago, I shutdown the computer and when I booted the next day, it would only reach the Apple logo and the spining wheel, the fans would blast loud and then it would shut down and restart again, repeating the same thing over and over.  I cannot start it under Safe Mode nor it recognizes the CD when booting.

OS X :: Time Machine Stuck In Loop Running SL?

Aug 29, 2009

I installed SL a few days ago and had to rebuild my Time Machine backup. It powered through all 700GB today and then it kept going. The progress bar got to the max: 700/700, then went to 700.02/700.02 ,, 700.03/700.03 ,, 700.04/ 700.04 ,, etc. Currently it's adding onto the "inprogress" file and filling up the drive with more data than I had to backup! It's done 844GB out of 700. Keep in mind, this is a totally-from scratch backup here! Do I stop it? Do I wait until it fills up the drive and "figures it out" ?
