MacBook Pro :: Spinning Ball Pops Up Every Time And Top Menu Bar Keeps Flashing

Jun 19, 2014

The problem started today, for no apparent reason. I was working with some programs open (not many) when my screen froze. Nothing worked, so I closed the laptop to see if it would return to the home page (where you type the password) soon after I heard the 'apple sound'. The computer was restarted, when opened, there was a gray folder with an white question mark flashing in the center of the screen. I restarted the computer again.  

From this time he began to have symptoms that persist until now:  

• Every time I do some action on any application the spinning beach ball appears and for a few seconds the program is locked.

• The top menu bar - where the icons are located ( bluetooth, dropbox, battery, spotlight, etc.) flashes every 40 seconds.

I use this computer for work and thus can hardly surf the internet.

Below are the data collected through the EtreCheck app about my computer: Hardware Information:  MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012) (Verified)  MacBook Pro - model: MacBookPro9,1  1 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 CPU: 4 cores  8 GB RAM Video Information:  Intel HD Graphics 4000 - VRAM: (null)  Color LCD 1440 x 900  NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M

OS X :: Getting Crash Report Every Time Reboot

Jul 13, 2009

I've looked every where for info and can't seem to find any one with the same problem. Every time I reboot, I get the unexpected restart dialog and the option to send the report to apple. When I look at the report it says its a kernel panic, but really the machine is very stable during normal operation, and the restart process works fine with the only abnormality being that the error dialog pops up every time without fail. After I either send the report or ignore it the computer runs normally. I did the standard permission repair and it didn't help. Also ran a ram testing app a while ago, Remember or something like that, after I installed some 3rd party ram from OWC and it said my ram was fine, so I don't think its the ram, but if some one know of a better test I'll try it. If any one has any idea what the problem might be, or even how to just simply disable the warning dialog would be grateful. Also, just looked in my panic reporter logs and it has not recorded any of my resets as panics.

MacBook :: HDD Swap - Reboot From Time Machine

Jan 17, 2009

my Macbook has finally kicked the bucket, it's been only working on mains power for sometime now and now when I boot up the only thing that appears on screen is a grey screen with a ? in the middle. I'm out of warranty so Apples no use here. I'm pretty sure the HDD is gone as I've put in the reboot disk and the HDD doesn't appear in startup disk. Is it possible to swap out the Macbook HDD for say this [URL] and then reboot from my time machine?

OS X :: Looking For Screensaver That Draw Picture Over Time

Oct 1, 2009

I remember when I was growing up that computers had screensavers that would draw a picture over time. I was not sure if there was something out there for Snow Leopard that did that now a days. I tried to do a google search on it, but so many things were ads or they cost money or the description I tried to give was giving me the wrong results. If someone has a link to such a screensaver or can tell me where I might find one.

Mac Mini :: Why Does It Crash And Reboot When Do A Time Machine Backup To A USB Hard Disk

Jun 17, 2012

This is the second time it has happened, the first was with a powered USB Hard Disk, this time with a WD Elements HD. The first time, it crashed and popped up an alert saying the machine needed to be restarted.After restarting it continued, then around half way through it crashed again.It then would not boot as it said the Mac Mini's HD was corrupted.Tried to repair using the recovery mode, with no joy.Reformatted Hard Disk, went to recover using online recovery, got a 6002F error and it wouldn't reinstallTook to apple service centre, they wanted to charge to reinstall the OS (put them straight on that ). 

Now it looks like it's doing it again, this time after the first crash I'm just copying the files I need manually to the external Hard Disk, which so far is OK.

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.

IMac :: Screen Brightness Adjusts Itself After Reboot?

Aug 25, 2009

After every reboot, the brightness of my iMac's screen changes to 100% brightness, which is slightly annoying. Does anyone know why this happens? By the way, I'd say it does it since 10.5.8.

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.

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.

OS X Yosemite :: IMac Slow And Reboot Takes 5 Minutes

Dec 8, 2014

I updated my late 2012 27" iMac from the latest Mavericks to Yosemite.  now it takes 30+ second between mouse click and action.  For example, if I click on iTunes it takes 30 seconds to a minute before iTunes opens.  I get the pinwheel while waiting.  I rebooted and the startup hangs on the progress bar for several minutes, then black screen for several minutes, then eventually gets to desktop.
