IMac (Intel) :: Log On Password No Longer Works

Jun 19, 2014

I bought a pre-owned iMac, late 2011 running Lion, took it to the Apple store to have the hard drive wiped and Lion re-installed. Then I brought it home and migrated files via Time Machine over from my Mac Book Pro , early 2009, running Mavericks. Now my log-on password no longer works. What happened?

IMac (Intel) :: Right Click Function No Longer Works Running OS X Mavericks 10.9.3

Jul 1, 2014

Using OSX 10.9.3 on my iMac. Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5, Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3. Fairly new iMac, 21.5 inch, Late 2013. Just now, my right click function on my mouse does not work. I have checked my System Preferences and the right click is checked under secondary click. I did uncheck it, exit System Preferences, and then come in again and re-checked it, but that did no good. 

I did restart my computer last night before I quit for the day because recently I uninstalled Sophos Anti-Virus because it seemed to be caught in a loop that was not finished "cleaning up" but that is only change I have made. Aside from the Sophos acting wonky there were no other issues with the machine last night. 

The right click does not work in all programs, not just Finder. How can I get my right click function to work again?

MacBook :: Password No Longer Works After Migration

Mar 25, 2012

During the week my macbook hard drive bit the dust.  I had a new hard drive installed today and I migrated my old data over to the new drive from backup when I got it home. So far so good - except when I try to log-in to my migrated user, the password simply doesn't work.  I've tried lots of alternatives, even though I'm 100% sure I know what the password is.  It's simply inconceivable that it can be anything other than what I think it is! 

I tried resetting the password of the user account in question through another administrator user account, but even the new password doesn't work when I log out and try to log-in to my old user again. I've tried going in through the master password (honestly, I have no recollection of even setting a master password) but nothing that I type in works for that either. I only have a very limited pool of passwords and I've tried them all.

I was running Lion on the account I'm trying to re-access from my old hard drive, but the new drive is running Snow Leopard. Could it be something to do with this? Failing that, is there any other way to reset the password?

Intel Mac :: Volume Control No Longer Works?

Feb 27, 2012

Still using the iMac we purchased about 5 years ago, and it's working fine. About a year ago, the numeric keypad on our wired keyboard stopped working. Anytime one of the keys was pressed on the number pad, the whole computer would freeze completely, and would have to be restarted.

A few weeks ago, we decided to stop tolerating this, and purchased a new wired keyboard with the numeric keypad. The numbers still don't work, and all the F buttons don't either. The volume controls don't work, and I've tried reconfigurating them. But they only end up working in iTunes.

We plugged back in the old keyboard and the same thing happened. Number pad doesn't work and the volume controls, etc. don't work.

Called Apple and they told me to call the store. So I called the Apple store we purchased the keyboard from, and they had no idea. Just told me to return the keyboard...

I don't want to have to try installing programs to get this to work. It really should be simpler than that.

OS X :: Firefox 3.0 No Longer Works?

Feb 20, 2009

For a long time I was running Firefox 3.0 just fine, until a few months ago when every time I tried to open it, it froze up and I had to shut it down. I removed it and installed Firefox 2.0 which was fine for a while but I would really like to start using 3.0 again.

Does anyone know what the problem could be? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, deleting my Firefox profile, etc.

I'm on a PowerBook G4.

OS X :: Win7 No Longer Works And Crashed On Mac

Jan 2, 2011

I been using Mac all my life, I have boot camp with Windows 7 X64 install and my leopard is running X64. I been using my windows 7 more than my mac spent 4 month straight using windows (windows put cocaine in there to get us hook). Any way one day my friend wanted to play a game of age of empires on Mac since he doesn't have windows so I boot in mac fine after a swift victory. I boot in mac and windows no longer works: blue screen of death so I reinstall after a few weeks I go back to mac to update and I check my windows partition from my mac all I see is 1 file with weird symbols? I go back to windows and it crashes again. So I figure it my bootcamp has a problem or it my mac side.

OS X :: Lexmark Printer No Longer Works On Usb?

Aug 30, 2009

Title of the post says it all really. My printer is one of the ones supposedly supported (x4690) and it works fine when connected by usb, but not wirelessly. I have tried everything I know to get this working.

The only clue I have is when I try to print and run a log, it says

Stopping job because the scheduler could not execute a filter.
E [30/Aug/2009:14:17:13 +0100] Unable to execute /usr/libexec/cups/backend/lexnet3: insecure file permissions (0100755)

I've tried to submit the problem to Lexmark, but the 'submit' button doesn't work on their website,.

Applications :: Search No Longer Works On Mail App On 10.4.11

Feb 10, 2009

I have found that the search function in no longer works. I can type an email address or name etc that I know for a fact is there but search fails to bring back any results.

The company I work for has a system where whenever an email comes in it is read and then placed in a folder in mail called 'Completed' so we know the email has been seen by someone and acted upon.

I noticed that occasionally the search function would not work and then I found it was getting worse now it simply no longer works. I think the best it manages is 2 characters in the search field then as soon as you type a 3rd it says no results found.

Is there a way to rebuild the database or something? Is this a common fault?

Without the search function I now have to manually search nearly 6000 messages.

OS X :: Snow Leopard 64 Bit - Webex No Longer Works?

Nov 19, 2009

After upgrading to Snow Leopard a program I need for my job no longer works. The program is Webex. They claim that it should work by opening Safari in 32 bit mode or with Firefox, but neither option works for me. My plan is to reinstall Leopard (10.5) on an extra partition and reboot into it whenever I need to start a Webex session. I don't think this will cause any problem with my Snow Leopard partition, but thought I would check first.

MacBook Air :: External Monitor No Longer Works

Aug 24, 2014

I have used an external 23" monitor with my macbook air for almost 2 years, i have had a few issues, mainly just temporary blackouts lasting for just a second or two, but also seen red screen (all colors become red), this was however just a rare issue and usually it was working just fine.i borrowed a friends macbook and connected with the same cable to the same screen, and it worked immediately with no issues. 

the screen would go completely black or start flickering (haven't seen this flicker before), and i had to fiddle around with reconnecting to get it working. the next day when i turned it on i had no picture, i tried again and still nothing, so i decided to install the updates, including thunderport firmware update. Now i got the old glitches and lots of new ones, at the times when i assume it would have worked before i am just getting static (black and white dots randomly everwhere) i can also get red'ish screen with instense flickering, but mostly just completely black. I thought the problem could be my cable or the monitor itself, but that's not the issue since those worked immediately without any problem on my friends computer, so it must be the macbook air itself!
