Feb 24, 2009

I'm in desperate need of help. Not too long ago I installed the latest apple security update, and I've notice some strange behavior from my imac ( 17" g5 with isight intel core2 duo) shortly afterward.

MacBook :: Updated Safari, Now It Won't Start?

Jun 12, 2012

Stuck on screen with apple logo. No curser, nothing.

Last try got stuck on a blue screen that alternated tones of blue every few seconds. Was able to start up in safe mode ( held shift). Finder loaded after a loooong wait. Once there I used Disc Diet to empty caches- this usually help to get rid of the rolling beach ball. Wasn't able to do much at all- all with rolling beach ball. Restarted without shift key- stuck on apple.

Should I uninstall Safari?

Applications :: Safari Won't Open Window On Computer Start Up?

Nov 10, 2010

I have safari set to open up when I boot up my computer using the login items for my user account.

But when I start up my computer, instead of opening up a window, it starts up safari in the dock, but never actually opens a window. When I click on the icon in the dock the page will open up. Its acting as if I hid(CMD+H) the page. I know safari is open and it loaded the homepage, but the window wont actually open.

I've tried it on two different computers, Macbook pro, mac pro with same issue on both.

OS X :: Safari Kept Hanging - IMac Won't Boot Up

Nov 21, 2010

My wife's iMac MC508 is 2 weeks old, I had to re-install it after 1 week because Safari kept hanging. It was working ok yesterday lunchtime when I used it but last night my wife switched it on and just got the white screen with logo, then a blank progress bar then the circle thing before it shut itself down. We have tried all the key combinations that we found online but no change. The only thing I have not done is put the install disk back in for fear of not being able to eject it. Has the hard drive packed up? Does this mean a trip to an Apple store?

Software :: Safari Won't Work - Can't Reinstall Because "This System Cannot Use This Software"

May 24, 2009

I have a Mac OS X 10.3.9, processor 450 MHz Power PC G4. I tried downloading a new version of Safari not really knowing if it would be compatible with my computer. I wanted to see if I could update it because I had been having a lot of issues with pages properly loading. I've been using this mac for 4 years, it was not mine to begin with, so I have no idea what applications have been downloaded or what. Once I downloaded the new Safari and restarted my computer, I couldn't open Safari anymore at all. Now I've deleted the Safari icon from Finder in hopes of reinstalling it again. I have no disks what so ever pertaining to this mac.

I am working on Internet Explorer, but this browser does not work well with my mac at all. I need my old Safari back. I tried redownloading it, but everytime I do I get stuck when I try to install it onto the cube hd. It says "You cannot install this software on this volume. This system cannot use this software." Plus I don't have very much space on my cube hd. I don't know what to do? How can I free up space AND get my Safari browser back??? I'm very much a beginner at this so I don't really know all the technical terms that I've been reading on the internet for the last 5 hours. I've been searching the internet desperately and I can't find an answer. Btw, I'm a college student borrowing this computer from my stepdad so I only have the computer, no disks.

Applications :: Safari Vanished And Can't Reinstall?

Dec 17, 2009

Safari 4 seems to somehow have been deleted from my mac. The dock icon had a question mark in it so I removed it from the dock (nothing happened when i clicked on it anyway). When I looked in my applications folder it appears to have gone from there. No problem I thought, i'll just reinstall it. Luckily I have Firefox on the computer so I went to and tried to download Safari 4. Nothing happens. A screen comes up saying thank you for downloading Sarafi but nothing has downloaded. Still not a problem i thought because i'm sure I have a copy of Safari 4 in my downloads folder from a few months ago. Found it, clicked on it and went through the install process. When it get to the "select a destination" stage it won't let me install because "this update requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 I have Mac OS X 10.5.8 which means it should work being a newer version. I can continue using Firefox but it seems a bit weird that I can't reinstall Safari. I have also noticed that for some reason i can't download anything else from the apple downloads page.

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 :: Can't Start Any Applications Except Safari And ITunes?

Sep 10, 2009

I installed iTunes 9 yesterday and since then the applications just randomly (Preview, Word, Pages, Textedit, Opera...) won't start anymore when I wan't to open some file (like Word file). I can only use Safari and iTunes. The only way I can make them work again is rebooting macbook. I can play with apps after that for 3 hours or so and then they won't open again. The icons just jump in the dock.

I have also another problem: when I adjust sound or brightness then the bars in the icon move very slowly, not smoothly. This also occurs when I hold a backspace button down to delete text. I noticed this 2 weeks ago.

IMac :: IMac 20" Won't Start (intel-2007)?

Jan 4, 2010

Yes I plugged in the block heater.....
Tried to reset the SMC (apple's only advice)
Tried to kick it into boot menu... no luck

managed to boot to Leopard install disk. backed into Disk Utility.... Verify System Disk produces: "Invalid B-tree node size...Disk Verify / Repair fail".

too bad too sad... no more information.

I don't know enough to know whether this is a SW failure or a drive failure, and my searches has led me here.

Also, my very first post in a forum, I read the rules and I hope I have found the right forum for this query.

Desktops :: IMac Won't Start Up?

Jan 20, 2010

I'm new here, but not new to the Mac world. I own an intel iMac and while I was attempting to restart it on Sunday night it went into a gray screen with the box asking me to shut and restart in several languages. I did and still get stuck on that page. I did a PRAM reset and that didn't work. So I used my start up disk to get to the disk utility and my HD is fine so I used an external drive to install the OS on it and reboot from and reinstalled from TimeMachine (only problem is the last time I backed up was 5 months ago)Again I checked my internal drive and everything seems okay, but I cannot reboot from it. BTW, I've OS 10.6.2,

OS X :: IMac Won't Start Up - Finder Hangs Up

Sep 28, 2010

I was working on my iMac (last year's model) today and the finder hung up (beach ball spinning). I force quit the finder, but it then refused to relaunch (although I could use other programs as before). I then tried to restart the computer but couldn't, and had to force the power off by holding the power button for a few seconds. Now when the computer starts up, it gets to the point where the "loading wheel" (with external spokes) starts turning, but then this "wheel" freezes. I put in my TechTool Pro 5 disc to start it up from that, but the same thing happens (yes, I have been holding down "C" when it starts to make sure that it uses it as a start-up disc). I am at a total loss, and live far from any computer repair store.

IMac :: Won't Start- Power Supply?

Nov 26, 2010

Tried to wake my 24" white iMac from sleep yesterday and discovered that it was off. Pressed the button in back but no go. Unplugged and replugged, pressed the button and it fired up fine. Surfed a bit, then put it back to sleep.

Came back about 3 hours later and it was off again. Unplugged and replugged, pressed the button and nothing. Tried it a couple more times just to check, and no go.

Any ideas? I've had this computer for a little over two years. Bought it used and bought Applecare which expired on.... Nov. 16th. Beautiful timing or what.
