OS X V10.7 Lion :: Weird Pixel That Shows Up On My Desktop

Apr 27, 2012

I am new to this seeing as my last macbook ran flawlessly for 6 years. Anyways, I just purchased a new macbook pro, and I love it except for the fact that I will get this weird white pixel that shows up on my desktop. The pixel is screenshotable and seems like it is sitting on a layer above my mouse. This pixel goes away when I restart my computer, but I think it comes back when I use microsoft word. This pixel moves off the screen when I use expose, and it is only present in desktop one. If i were to open a new desktop or view an app in full screen mode, the pixel is not there. I have tried reinstalling microsoft office but to no avail.

Info:MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

MacBook Pro :: Stuck Pixel Whenever Playing ITunes Movies And TV Shows?

Apr 16, 2012

Just got a brand new MacBook Pro 15" a week ago with the standard specs. I have noticed whenever I'm playing a video that's bought or downloaded from iTunes, a pixel on the up-left corner of the screen starts flashing between blue and black like crazy, at first I thought it was a physical defect, but when I stop playing videos the stuck pixel disappears. I ran a number of test and confirmed it wasn't the screen's problem. All the firmwares are up to date by the way.

OS X :: Download Free Image Editing Software - Shows Pixel Value Changing

Jul 9, 2009

Does anyone know where I can download a free image editing program that shows the pixel values changing as the image is being cropped? The best basic program that does this is Microsoft Picture Manager, so I basically need something like this for the Mac.

MacBook Pro :: Desktop Shows Up As Blue But Shows Up Correctly In Settings?

Aug 21, 2014

My MacBook Pro 13", running on latest update, is showing a completely blue, plain blue, desktop background. It changed all by itself. When I tried to reset it by right clicking on the image I want on my desktop and selecting "Set Desktop Picture" nothing changes. When I go into my settings and try to change it that way, the image I want as my background shows as already being my background, yet my desktop is still blue. Tried rebooting already.

Mac Pro :: Horizontal Pixel Lines Through Screen (Application Windows And Desktop)?

Nov 1, 2007

I thought it might have been a graphics card problem, but these lines move with the apps even in expose mode.

Its driving me nuts. I had this problem before while on 10.4 Tiger and now again on 10.5 Leopard (fresh install on new hard drive).

Software :: Weird Folders Appearing On Desktop?

Oct 7, 2008

I'm running Mac OS 10.5.5 on a Intel Mac Pro and seeing this strange problem that has me stumped. At regular intervals, the OS is creating locked folders that have strange names that look like hex (E6A8F15A-9BD5-45CC-A54A-EBD6E25C5053-228-00007DE458ADF42D is a folder name on one of them currently) on the desktop. These folders appear to be copies of a DVD burn folder that I had created and then deleted after burning the DVD. In fact, the original files in that burn folder have also been deleted after burning and no longer exist on any disk.

If the computer is running for a few hours, there are tons of these folders created on the desktop. I can drag them into the trash bin if I click ok to the message that says these are locked folders. Then I can empty the trash bin if I click option and they are deleted from the trash bin. Meanwhile more are created on my desktop!Anyone seen anything like this or have some pointers? I've checked permission on the boot disk using Disk Utility and it found nothing wrong. I have also deleted the Finder plists in ~/Library/Preferences. Anything else I can do? I've been trying to figure out what process is creating these folders but no luck. I suspect it could be the Finder since it was a burn folder, but don't know where to look to diagnose and fix this annoyance.

OS X :: Desktop Shows Distorted Colors In Some Spots?

Oct 5, 2008

Every now and then my desktop will show some weird colors in relation to the background image, but it's very odd looking. I don't really know how to describe it, so I've attached a screen shot for reference.

The problem goes away if I just move the mouse over the area or if I open and close a program window on top of the area.

OS X :: 4 Finger Swipe Occasionally Shows Desktop Instead

Aug 24, 2009

I'm very satisfied with snow leopard, but with one qualm: I noticed that apple changed SOMETHING with the way expose works with gestures. Back in leopard, when I swiped four fingers down, it would expos�, and four fingers up = show desktop. However this doesn't appear to be the case in snow leopard. When I swipe four fingers down, it often shows my desktop instead of going into expos�. I have to swipe my fingers up and down a few times to get it to go into expos� correctly. It's really odd and I don't understand why it's doing this. Could it be related to the fact that I have my upper right corner set to show desktop?

OS X :: Inserting A Data Cd Shows Blank On The Desktop?

Feb 22, 2010

This has happened to me twice in a week on two separate machines, with two separate discs. When inserted into the Mac, the "blank disc" window comes up, even though the disc is full of files. The "get info" window shows 8k of space taken up on the disc.

How can this be, and what can I do to fix it?

Both machines are running Leopard.

Software :: Desktop Shows Light From The Bottom?

Jul 7, 2008

I'm not sure if this make sense, but I'll do my best. (I'm a Mac newbie as of four days ago, and generally loving it)

I've somehow set up my display to have an appearance of a folding effect emanating from the bottom of the screen. This effect also shows through any open windows, which is annoying and distracting. If anyone knows what I'm talking about and how to turn it off, I'd appreciate it. I tried taking a screen grab, but the effect doesn't show up on it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Deletes ITunes TV Shows

Feb 21, 2012

I've set up time machine on my new mac, it all seemed to be working well. I have a WD external hard drive 500GB (my estimated backup size is about 50GB). I have all my media on another WD hard drive, this is not in scope for back up. I run time machine and it all goes well. Just after a few weeks I noticed that some of my TV shows were missing from iTunes, when I actually check the files on the external hard drive they are missing, they are also not in the trash. I wasn't sure what was causing this but this happened a few times. Eventually I turned off time machine and now I don't have the issue anymore.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: ITunes Not Showing Content That AppleTV Shows?

Mar 28, 2012

I have a very large iTunes library, with content spread over multiple volumes.  Recently, I would add, say, a movie to the iTunes library.  I don't have iTunes set to copy content into the library, so it stays where it is. Now, the item looks like it got added.  If, within iTunes, I'm in the "Movies" library, and I search for the movie I just added, it isn't there.  I do a search for it, and it isn't there.  However, all the AppleTVs connected to the library show that it is there, and I can play it. 

So, clearly the item has made it into the library, otherwise it wouldn't be streamed to the connected AppleTVs, (and iPhones, and iPads).  But, it still will not show up in the iTunes library list.  No matter what I do.  I can quit and relaunch iTunes, I can quit iTunes and open it back up with the "option" key to that I can specifcally choose that library, etc.  But, it never shows up in the list. I just upgraded to iTunes 10.6.1, and still, no dice.  It will not show up in the iTunes list, but I can still play it from shared iPhones, iPads, and AppleTVs.
