Software :: Programs Are Quitting On Me Whenever It Seems Too Much For The Ram To Handle?
Feb 27, 2010
so basically programs are quitting on me whenever it seems too much for the ram to handle, not sure if thats the case but certain webpages and programs work but when i go to craigslist or other sites, it lags while its thinking and then quits. also dashboard client quits every time i open it. when i watch videos at a completely unprompted time the video will just pause and the spinning coloured wheel will pop up and it will basically be frozen for about 30 seconds, this happens every 30min or so.
a week ago i had a problem where this lag occurred then eventually i could not load/start the mac at all but after very helpful tips from your techs i reinstalled osx while archiving all my files but there is still a definate issue.this is the link to that question if at all helpful[URL]have also freed up some HD space, i have over 30 gb's free, and before the dashboard crashes, my istat widget tells me i have around 2.5-3 gb's free of RAM so im not too sure what the problem is, maybe i should just wipe everything and start fresh? i dont really want to do this so if anyone has an idea, i would love to hear from you.
I have done alot of research. I have never owned a mac. I haven't used on since I graduated from school 5-6 years ago for graphics. I have no desire if I do get one to boot xp on it I find the mac os to look more clean(yeah if that makes since) My current laptop is a sony vaio. I mean I know its not strong enough to handle the adobe programs, I can barely run flash cs4 and photoshop cs4 at the same time. My specs on my current sony vaio which I got like 2 and a half years ago is 0.99 gigs of ram/1.60 ghz/ginuwine intel (r) cpu. I know its nothing compared to today and with more work from clients I need something that can handle running at least 5 of the adobe programs at the same time with the internet browser opened and maybe a mp3 player like jet audio playing some tunes to get some serious work done occasional video editing but nothing too crazy..
This week I have several programs that are quitting unexpectedly, or will not open all of a sudden. Photoshop CS, office 2004, and even the Appleworks programs. They all refuse to open. I uninstalled PS and the office products, and then tried to reinstall and couldn't even do that from the install disk. I did do a disk repair scan, but it said there was nothing wrong with the disk.†And I'm getting some SymSecondary launch(whatever that is) failure as well.
I have a question about using my new samsung tv as a monitor for my macbook. I have all the cables and such and my TV reads the computer. It actually shows the desktop background, mouse, and the toolbar on the tv... BUT....when i try and open a program such as safari or itunes it does not display the program on the monitor but rather on my macbook screen. It shows the program open on the tv monitor but it shoots off the screen and then opens on the macbook screen.
Also the mouse disappears from the tv monitor screen on the left side only, and when it does it becomes visible back on the macbook screen! Any tips or suggestions on how to get the programs to show up on the monitor instead of the macbook screen?
I'm wondering if I can just add another drive to my Mac Pro so that I can boot into OSX or XP or Vista? Can bootcamp handle more than one operating system or must I give up XP to have Vista? The windows bit is needed for games btw.
I have my Mac Pro 2.8 8 core as my main machine. And my MBP 17 as my 'mobile' workstation when I'm on the road or out of the studio. I back up my MP system and files using CCC to an external drive. Usually I manually copy just the working folder of files that I need to my MBP and work away. When I get back to the studio I manually copy the same folder back to my MP. The question is.. is it ok to boot off my MP System + files backup off the external drive while connected to my MBP? And work off it. Both have system 10.5.7 installed. Will there be any problems with booting off essentially a MP configured system while working off the MBP's hardware. i.e., will there be any conflicting system files that may get confused and screwed up?
If it was safe, then I could essentially cloned back from the MP external sys+files back up - Back - on the MP. Just wanted to get some opinions and advice from others who probably have similar dual workstation & mobile machine set-ups. Just wondered how you handle the switching between systems? I just don't want to risk cloning back from the external to the MP and risk screwing the whole setup and configs! Otherwise I might just do what I have been doing and just manually copy the files/folders I need on the MBP. Do the work and then only just copy this folder back on the MP. Without any full system drive clones.
Still working on getting audio exported to an AAF, and having problem doing this.¬† So, how FCPX is handling my audio.¬†When it's on the timeline, is it being conformed to the frame rate of the video?¬† ¬†
When audio is exported, does FCPX force it to conform to the video frame rate in the project settings, audio properties, or both?¬† Or does it allow the audio to export at whatever rate the original media is at?¬†
I export an XML from FCPX, then open that with X2Pro and it makes an AAF file, but a report tells me that¬†¬† "Conform rates are not supported. The Conform rate at 01:04:49.23 has been ignored."¬† So when I go to that timecode, all I see is video at 24p and a detached audio piece at 23.98.¬† Why are these different?

With the prominence of iWork at the iPad unveiling today, the question arises: How will the iPad (or iPhone OS) handle document storage and manipulation? Where will new documents that are created on the iPad be saved? Will individual documents appear as icons on the homepage next to app icons (a la bookmarks)?
I'm hoping Apple has a plan in the works to develop folders for the OS that can store files. This would allow for easier handling of PDF files and such as well.
I am looking for a good FTP client, which can also handle SFTP. I have used Transit on the Mac, and WS_FTP on Windows which were both good. I was just wondering if there is anything better before I part with my money for Transit.
I'm thinking of getting the new 13-inch MacBook Pro soon, but I'm wondering about cases and bags. I was looking around (not hard, and only online thus far), but I haven't stumbled upon and sleeves with handles. The Incase Sleeve Plus is still too big and bulky (strictly speaking, I mean appearance, not actual size and weight; one without a flap going over it, just a zipper).
I'm not a developer so I haven't had any experience with Leopard builds. Can anyone who had the privilege of trying it out tell me how computer units are handled? Specifically, I'm talking about definition of kilo/mega/... prefixes and 10^3 vs. 2^10 mixups that make harddrives / usb sticks / optical media appear smaller than they actually are, etc.
My guess would be everything is still the same, because fixing this would probably be mentioned somewhere and because we have been using units incorrectly for a while now (frankly most other operating systems haven't fixed this either, so I'm not expecting much), but still it's better to ask .
I currently have a powermac g4 gigabit ethernet model. It has a 400mhz cpu, 1gb RAM, and an ati rage pro video card with 16mb video memory. When I try to watch youtube videos (or any other online videos), it is choppy. I am looking into purchasing a PowerMac G4 Quicksilver. It would have a 1.4 ghz sonnet PPC cpu, 1 GB Ram, and an upgraded video card (I think ati) with 64mb video memory. I can get this quicksilver system for 250CDN.
Do you think that the quicksilver will be able to handle youtube videos better. Do you think it will be a major overall increase in preformance. I want to run flash cs3/cs4 on it. Currently on my gigabit ethernet model, flash cs4 runs pretty slow. In the end, do you think I will notice a overall increase in everything I do (including video streaming)? Please let me know if you think the quicksilver is a good upgrade.
I recent purchased an iBook G4. It's due to arrive on Tuesday. I'm planning on using it for doing my assignments in University and generally browsing the web. I've purchased the 1Ghz model with 512MB RAM which I plan on upgrading to 1.25GB RAM. Do you think that the machine will be able to handle iTunes, RemoteDesktop (Win RDC) and IM Clients such as Pidgin? (Not necessarily all at the same time)?
i was wondering if a mac mini could handle the final cut suite/final cut studio. now just in hard drive space but will it be able to handle HD video editing encoding, rendering and everything else a pro. video editor would do.
I am newly converted. My laptop was old and I needed something to handle high res RAW images. I am the proud new owner of a MBP 15 inch, with a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. I am wondering if I can also hook this up to my monitor, mouse and keyboard that I use with my Windows machine. My monitor has both a DVI input and VGA, the VGA is still available
I'm fairly new to Mac's and loving it so far and I'm very excited to be receiving my 27" iMac tomorrow and since this computer is going to be shared amongst my wife and myself. What is the best way on Mac's to handle 2 users?
The only concern I'm wondering about is email contacts, Internet bookmarks and possibly a few other small things.
