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?
I ran verify disk, and was told I need to repair disk... I try to boot from my OSX snow leopard disk buy holding down C at reboot, but I get nothing... I hear it go to the disk, but then I just hear clicking and noise from dVD. I can boot normal, but I can't boot from safe mode or DVD? What can I do?
I have a Macbook Pro 17" with 10.6.8 installed but won't bootup. It stays on the logo and spinning gear screen and won't proceed from there. I have tried to reboot from a Snow Leopard install disk but it won't recognize it and haven't been able to startup from another computer using firewire connection.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), stays on logo and rotating gear
My hard drive recently crashed. I just bought a new one and installed it myself. Now it's simply a matter of reinstalling the operating system, which is where I'm having trouble. I insert the Snow Leopard Install DVD into the drive. I power on the computer and hold 'C' (I've tried Option too) to boot from the disc, but it doesn't work. It spits out the disc after a few seconds, whether I hold 'C' or not, and then it gives me a folder icon with a question mark in it in the center of the screen, the same thing it showed when my hard drive first crashed.
I just purchased a LaCie triple interface (500GB disk to use as a bootable external drive to support our family's family of mac's, all running 10.6.8 including a 2006 Core Duo iMac, a 2007 Core2Duo iMac, a Core2Duo Mini, and a 2010 MacBook Pro.
The firewire drive does not appear as a bootable option on any of the computers, attached to either of the iMacs via the Firewire 400 port (through a 400 to 800 adaptor), or attached via the Firewire 800 port on the MBP. This is the profile of the LaCie via System Profiler on the iMac?
FireWire Bus: Maximum Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec Rugged FW USB3: Manufacturer: LaCie
The problem is that the mac will not boot period.When I press the Option on start up, it takes me to a screen where I could select to boot from the Macintosh Hard disk or Recovery 10.9 disk.Choosing either of these still does not boot up the computer.
I think that the hard disk is damaged but what I do not understand is why I can still get the option to choose the Hard disk or the Recovery disk.I am waiting to hear from Apple Support on when I can take my imac to the genius bar and I was wondering if there is anything I can do before then. Intel imac 27-inch bought refurbished in November 2010 with imac apple care.Intel quard core processor, 4 Gig RAM, 1 terabyte HD
After partitioning my hard drive, I was not able to boot up my computer. Currently it is stuck at the white screen when it boots up. I tried using the USB Recovery Disk to boot up however it does not seem like it is responding to anything
I pressed C while having the USB inserted I also tried pressing D to go in to the Apple Hardware Test nothing happened.
I also tried resetting the VRAM? It did beep and it reset however I still can't bootup
When I try turning the computer on, I get the option to choose the startup disk, but only Recovery is visible. When i check in Recovery, it still shows my original start up disk, but I cannot restart off that. What do I do?
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)
I want to create a minimal recovery boot disk for SL. I've followed how-to's on creating one for 10.4 and 10.5, but so far it I couldn't get it to work with 10.6. If you have successfully done this, or can point me to a pre-made image or how-to.
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.
I recently upgraded from 10.5.8 to 10.6.3 and now my computer is freezing up like crazy. I have all the qualifications to run SL ... but for whatever reason it is having MAJOR issues. how I can find out why my iMac is now freezing up?

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.
this will sound random but the 35 new desktop pictures that were leaked from snow leopard are not entirely there on my recently upgraded computer.notably, camo and the graffiti stuff. i just want to make sure my install didnt get boned and i am missing other more important things.
I have two Macs that run Snow Leopard. Lion looks to be quite different and offer great new features, particularly the app store. So, can a Mac become dual boot like a Linux can? I mean, may I co-install Lion side by side with Snow leopard rather than overwrite it? I have successfully done this operation on a Linux Ubuntu netbook with two different versions of Ubuntu, and a Windows 7/Ubuntu netbook. But I've never tried this on a Mac. Does a Mac OSX install allow options for how the user will install the new OS?
I have a Macbook Pro from 2008. It previously just had one partition, with Lion on it.
I created a new partition for Snow Leopard
I installed Snow leopard from a retail disk on the second partition. The installation went fine, and I got the message at the end that the installation was successful, and to restart the computer.
When I restart it, it just goes to the gray Apple screen, with the spinning gear, and never gets farther than that. The gear is spinning.
I can still boot successfully into Lion. Once I booted into Lion, I chose the Snow Leopard partition as the Startup Disk, but the same thing happens - just the gray Apple screen and spinning gear. I've let the machine sit for half an hour in that state, but it still does nothing but the spinning gear.
why I can't boot successfully into Snow Leopard and how I can fix it?
I have a MBP mid-2010, originally with Snow Leopard, but long since running Lion (currently the latest release, 10.7.4). When I installed Lion, I created a recovery partition on the MBP's boot disk. This was about 9 months ago. I now want to run Recovery Disk Assistant to create a recovery partition on an external disk, but when I start Recovery Disk Assistant it says: "Lion recovery could not be created"... because the recovery HD on this computer is damaged or not present...etc.
However, if I open a Terminal and run "Diskutil list", I see:
So, the recovery partition appears to be there. I presume Recovery Disk Assistant thinks it's damanged. However, I can hold down Alt/Option when booting my MBP and I see the recovery partition. I can even boot from the recovery partition and everything works as expected.
Info: MacBook Pro, mid-2010 MBP running Mac OS 10.7.4
I upgraded from OSX 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard (single license) on one of my two iMacs, and then installed Lion. Is my Snow Leopard disk now liberated to make the pre-Lion upgrade on the second computer, since it is no longer operating on the first one? All of the hardware meets the upgrade requirements.
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.
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.
