OS X Mavericks :: Upgrade To OSX 10.9.4 And Lost Second Monitor?
Aug 22, 2014
I lost my second monitor when I upgraded to 10.9.4 from 10.9.2 a few months ago.I went back to OS X 10.9.2 and it works fine right now, but I would like to upgrade to Max OS X 10.9.4 hoping Apple has fixed the problem.Present infoOS X 10.9.2 (13C1021) 2 x 3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon. Memory 14 GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMMNVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 4096 MBAJA KONA 3There is a new CUDA driver. But NVDIA said that CUDA has nothing to do with a second monitor and speak to Apple. Who do I call?
I'm using it for video editing.
This happened before when I upgraded last year but now I have the new NVDIA card
How do I restore my contacts that were lost during Mavericks upgrade? All of my contacts are gone. My version of Contacts in Time Machine is 7.1, which can't be opened in Mavericks (version 8.0). I know they are in there somewhere. I also don't use ICloud, so I can't find them there.
I was just upgraded from a 13" mbp on 10.6 to a 15" mbp on 10.7.3 and I'mn having a lot of issues with the UI changes. The biggest bother at the moment deals with window positions when I undock my laptop to take it to a meeting. I unplug all the cables, head to a meeting, and when I get back and plug everything in, my external monitor shows a blank desktop. I need to drag everything back into place for a two display setup.
If I move the menu bar to the external display everything will shoot over to the external display when docked, leaving the mbp screen empty. This is a real pain and I can't figure out what purpose it serves.
Is there a setting I could change to correct this behavior?
I just upgraded (well the Mac store in Turin italy did it for me, I probably should have done it myself!). Everything great except I lost all my smart mailboxes and regular mailboxes. I had a big file of mail called "archive" - when I go to create a new one, I get a message that a file named "archive" already exists.
I just upgraded to leopard on my mom's iMac G4. I did a install and archive but when I opened her Mail there were no emails. It saved all her mailboxes but there are no old emails. All her info in iCal and Address book are there... nothing else seems to be missing. I have a back up of her users setting from 10.3 so I know have her emails but don't know what I should do?
Just bought a new MacBook (OSX 10.6.1 w/4GB RAM) and ViewSonic 22" monitor. When I hooked it up (via DVI) and loaded the VewSonic drivers, I got the max resolution of 1920 x 1080. Earlier today, I came back and woke up my MacBook - and got only a snowy screen on the monitor and couldn't get anything on the laptop. Restarted and now, even though the display shows 1920 x 1080, it is not providing that resolution. The max for the laptop shows 1280 x 800 and that is about what is showing on the monitor as well. I keep resetting the resolution on the monitor at 1920 x 1080 - but the screen size doesn't change.
My mac is up to date with mavericks 10.9.3 but the mail application won't upgrade since when I open it a message appears "upgrading your mail database... this make take a few minutes" but it just freezes. I have tried restarting the app, the mac and I dont know what else to do.
Info: MacBook Air (13-inch Late 2010), OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)
I bought my MacBook Pro last year. It shipped with Snow Leopard. Since then I have been using File Vault, and within my Library folder, I had one main folder, a sub folder, and a sub-sub folder locked. Never had any problems accessing those folders. Yesterday, I upgraded to Lion and now the "Library" folder does not even show up and is unsearchable.
I tried turning off the Legacy File Vault and it required more disk space than I had available on the main hard drive, so I cloned the HD onto my LaCie 4TB Thunderbolt drive, making a bootable drive, re-booted from LaCie, and de-crypted it on there. This did not make my folder re-appear.Do I need to revert to Snow Leopard in order to see that folder again? De-crypt and then upgrade to Lion?
I was in I-tunes just trying to sync my music on my I-Phone and it asked me to upgrade...well when I went to upgrade when it was finished I lost everything on my phone...how do I retrieve this information back?
I have been working on an Excel file for the last month continuously saving at every moment. At some point something happened and the file name now included a (version 1) after the original file name. I didn't worry about that because I was able to work on the file and keep on saving my work. I did some changes yesterday and saved it. All of a sudden I got a message that there was an upgrade ready to be installed at night. So I saved the file and did the upgrade. my file was nowhere to be found. I keep looking at Finder and I can only find a file with a similar name not the one with the (version 1) on it. I opened that file but it doesn't include any of the changes and updates I have done in the last month. I never deleted the file and I have double checked on the Trash and its not there. Is there a way to recover my file? The only thing that I did differently was that I completely powered of my mac as opposed to just closing it.
I just upgraded to OS X 10.6 and in the process I lost almost all of my contacts in Address Book. I did a full backup before I did the upgrade, so I expect I still have the file even if it isn't still on the hard disk.
I have a 3.06 Intel Core Duo iMac and a 253 Intel Core i5 Macbook Pro. Both are running 10.6.8. They have until recently successfully shared my HP C8180 All in One Printer, the iMac being connected to the printer via USB and to a Netgear Router via Ethernet and the Macbook Pro being linked to the router wirelessly.
Having just updated the HP Drivers via software update on both machines the Macbook Pro is no longer able to connect to the printer via the iMac wirelessly and the printer is not reported as being "Nearby". It does however connect via the iMac if it is connected to the router via Ethernet !
Printer sharing is on on the iMac, I have tried removing the printer from both machines Preferences and re-instating them (which coincidentally has meant I have lost the connection to "Lightscribe" and can't get it back on either machine !) I've tried installing the latest HP Software to try and get the Macbook pro to connect to the printer directly via the router but witth no success - it reports that some of the HP software is not compatible with 10.6.8 despite HP saying it is for 10.6.
how I can get the laptop to print in the way it did up until earlier today and how to get "lightscribe" back?
I recently just upgraded to Snow Leopard two days ago. Since then, I have lost the Hard Disk drive icons and I don't know how to get it back. In fact, I have no icons on my desktop at all except for the external hard drive that I have plugged in. How do I get my icons back? Especially the main hard disk one.
I've just moved from Snow Leopard to Mavericks, and all the mailbox contents (that is, those in boxes in "On My Mac") have vanished. I've tried going to user/Library/Mail/subfolder1 as others have suggested, but I don't have Mail in this Library folder. How do I fix this, if possible, via Time Machine backups? Or any other way, for that matter.
I recently upgraded and enabled iPhoto and started ICloud syncing for my photo stream. When I open Mail now, I have lost all my signatures and the filtering rules I had set up for incoming mail. How is this connected, and how can I get back my sigs and rules?
Came in this AM to find power had been lost some time last night. After I booted up, I could not see anything in my Documents folder... I get a message "The folder 'Documents' can't be opened because you don't have permission to see the contents." Permissions seem to be fine:
flamingo:~ jnojr$ ls -lde Documents/ drwx------+ 54 jnojr staff 1836 Jun 24 15:34 Documents/ 0: group:admin allow list
group:everyone deny list,delete...I also cannot see it in my Time Machine, even for older dates when everything was OK. I can see the contents with an account with sudo privileges. I verified and repaired permissions. I booted into safe mode and ran an fsck Googling led to several discussions where people were using different UIDs or had otherwise lost privileges, which does not appear to be the case here.
I've just upgraded from 10.6.8 to 10.9.3 and am very disappointed to see that everything in the sidebar is shown in shades of gray. I've used FolderBrander for many years to color code my finder folders and it was great that the folder colors also appeared in the sidebar in 10.6.8. I could group associated folders by color in the sidebar and that made for very rapid and accurate access deep into my folder architecture. I am mourning this lost functionality. how I could send this dissatisfaction along to Apple along with a request to restore colors to the sidebar?
When I updated my MacBook Air software from 10.6.8 to Maverick I lost all my videos in the process. Where did they go and how do I get them back? Did they all end up in various events folders in iphoto? They used to also be separate from the photos in the video folder on the harddrive but are no longer there.
I bought a domain through Google a few years ago, the host was Enom until last month when I decided to switch to UK2 and had to export my email before switching servers.
I ended up having a large .mbox file. After the switch I uploaded the file on mail and I found that all the emails saved in subfolders were missing (see image). It goes without saying those were the most important emails.
Is there a way to recover the emails in the subfolder?
I use Mail 7.2 (1874) on Mavericks OS X 10.9.2

I just setup a Seagate external drive to become my offsite backup. I am a new iMac user. I dragged and dropped my most important folders (using Finder) onto the Seagate drive (to copy them over) but probably I did something incorrectly because the Document folder which has all my important files disappeared from under Favorites in Finder and did not show up on the Seagate. I can no longer access what I need as there is no easy way to locate my files which were grouped in a multi level, nicely organized file structure under Documents, to make it easy for me to locate my work.
Now, Finder shows under Favorites: All My Files, Airdrop, Applications, Desktop, Downloads, Logins. Previously it also had an entry for Documents, now missing. Using All My Files I can locate the files I worked on yesterday, so they are still on the hard drive.
