IMac :: How To Delete A User From IMac After Reboot, Using Os X Install Dvd To Reset Keychain

May 25, 2010

I forgot my admin password on my iMac recently and so i used the reboot with OS X snow leopard install disc to reset the keychain, but now on my login screen, it used to be just my account name, there is one called "Other" so i went into accounts in system preferences and tried to delete it but it isnt there?is really annoying me p.s. the "other account" isnt actually an account it says "Other" and when you click on it asks for your username and i type in the admin accounts name and password (admin account is the only one on this computer), and it just opens up my admin account.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Reset User Account On IMac

Apr 3, 2012

I have created user accounts on my iMac for each of my kids. Whenever we try to login to my daughter's account, we see the standard 'galaxy' background, then a flash of gray, then the background again and then that process repeats over and over. The DVD Player app is running, but I cannot figure out a way to kill it or get out of the endless loop. Everytime she logs in, I end up having to hold the button on the back of the computer to shut it off, then restart everything.

Is there a way to sign in to her account without having all the applications launched that were running when she signed out? I think that might be the first step to fixing everything, but I can't figure out how to do that. Is there a preferences file I can kill? Or are there aliases in a folder somewhere that contain the items to be relaunched at startup? Her account is managed under parental controls.

IMac :: Can't Delete A User (admin) - Get Spinning Pin Wheel

Dec 7, 2009

I migrated my macbook pro over to my imac successfully. The weird thing was, when it asked about users, i didnt have the opportunity to overwrite (or merge) the mbp user with the existing imac user. That option was greyed out and the only option was to create a NEW user.. Not the best

None the less, i created the new user from my MBP and figured i would just move a few files over from the other user that I wanted and delete the old existing user.. but i cant!!!

I made sure to give full access to all admins and moved the files with no problem.. (p.s. both accounts are admin users with full permissions)

The problem is when I go into the system preferences, and click on users and then unlock the preferences, I can click on '-' to remove the old user and it asks if i want to create a disk image, just delete it, or remove just the user and keep the home folder.. I chose to create a disk image and delete the user

This is when it gets stuck. I click continue and i get the spinning pinwheel of death.

rebooted and still the same thing.

whats going on?? I dont know how to check if the computer is just not creating the disk image and there is something wrong with that, or if there is something seriously wrong with how the users/files are linked.

OS X :: IMac 10.6.3 Takes 15 Minutes To Reboot?

Apr 8, 2010

For about a week now, every time I boot my iMac mid-2007 20" running 10.6.3 I get the following problems

-Booting takes about 15 minutes of seeing the apple logo, and a bar that fills slowly under it...

-When it finally boots all the dock icons are reset to the ones you get with a brand new mac, spaces and expose is reset as well.

-Spotlight reindexes Macintosh HD.

-Adium loses all contact icons

-Mouse loses all it's custom settings.

-Login items are gone, I have tried not to re-enable those.

-Shut down takes about 10 minutes as well, while I see only the blue screen of shut down...

It seems that it is losing more and more settings every day. Today I had to turn on time machine again, although it was on before shut down...

Is this like losing an application support folder or something like that?

Applications do not seem intact as well.

Safari loses all web screenshots from cover flow iTunes reupdates the library etc....

What's up witn all these?

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.

Software :: IMac Shuts Off At Random And Not Reboot

Jun 28, 2008

I have a G5 iMac, 1G ram, with three external HD, a MIDI keyboard, and an all-in-one Canon print/copy/scan, running Leopard. Lately, my iMac has been turning off seemingly at random, like someone has hit the power strip (although other things plugged into the strip stay on). Sometimes it will reboot when I turn it back on, sometimes not. When it doesn't, it will get partway through startup, then turn off again. There is no apparent pattern to the point during startup where this happens, it's different every time. Sometimes, it barely spins the HD before going dark again.

I took off the back and checked the power supply LED. It says the power supply is OK. I rebooted via the internal power button, and everything was fine for a couple of days. I set the preferences to "reboot after power failure" so it will reboot when I'm at work. I can go through the Time Machine backup list and see how many times it shut down and rebooted during the day (TM backs up once per hour, so when there is a significant length of time between backups, I know it shut down for awhile). The only recent addition is the installation of MoneyWell software, but this app isn't always running when the comp goes black.

Software :: IMac Starts Itself With Reboot Screen

Jan 9, 2009

In the last three days my iMac desktop has begun starting itself up. There is an audible beeping (three or four beeps) and the on/off indicator light blinks rapidly. When the screen comes up there is no desktop but a gray background with reboot instructions. When I type the reboot words "mac-reboot" the desktop comes back.

Under Logs in the system profiler I see the following message:
CGXDDisableUpdate:Updates disabled by connection 0x66-3 for over 1.000000 seconds
CGXBlindSurface returns-536870210
The computer is rather old, is running OS X 10.2.8 and has never done anything like this before.

May 9, 2012

I've just done an install of lion from snow leopard on my IMac. Now when I reboot, I just get the grey brushed aluminum background and apple logo slightly higher than centre and a black arrow cursor. No desktop, no login options, nothing else whatsoever appears on the screen.I've tried resetting the pram, and to access the lion recovery mode (command r on boot up) but this does not even appear. All I can get is the same empty screen and arrow cursor.
