PowerPC :: Unable To Login / Freeze After Login

Jul 28, 2008

I have an iMac G5 1.8Ghz and Today when I logged in, it just froze on the apple OS X background. I waited 2 minutes, and nothing happened. It was weird because it's the first time it happened. Anyway, I turned the iMac off and re-tried. It did the exact same thing. So I turned it off, unplugged everything, waited around a minute, plugged it all back in, and it worked fine.

But yeah, just trying to work out why it would do that... because this is going to my brother and I don't want it to just crash when I give it to him.

Software :: Unable To Login To Computer / Asks Password And Returns To Login Screen

Jun 20, 2008

Hi! Im new to the forums but i really need help with something and i was hoping someone here could help me out. So I just installed Tech Tool Deluxe onto my macbook and then shut it down later. I went back to use it again and when i turned it on a login screen appeared asking me to put in my password. I did that and the screen turned blue (looking like it was loading) and then went back to the login screen. Every time i put in my password it just takes me back to the login screen. I have had my mac for a while and i dont want my hardrive to get wiped out so what do i do? Thank you for looking

OS X :: Unable To Auto-login To Guest Account / Safari Wants To Use Keychain Login

Jan 6, 2009

I work for a company that has several Macs available for customers' use. These are basically demo-machines that they can play with, and at the end of each day, the machines are wiped and rebooted.

The way we do this is simple: the machines auto-login to the Guest account, which will wipe the account at the end of the day. Well, getting a few new Macs in this week, I simply copied over the entire Guest user account to the new machines to avoid reloading all the demo content, preferences, etc. And truthfully, the machines have been working great.

Except one thing. The computer keeps giving me that annoying message that says "Safari (or Finder, or System Preferences, or anything!) wants to use keychain 'login'". And asks for the login keychain password. Well here's the thing: the Guest accounts don't have passwords!

So I looked up a little bit on this topic, and did things like... Went to "Keychain List" in the Edit menu of Keychain Access, and deleted both the "login" and "system" keychains. No help. I went to Preferences in Keychain Access and said "Reset My Keychain". When doing this, however, it asks for the new password for the login keychain.

The problem with this is that I cannot leave the field blank! The Guest account doesn't have a password, so how am I supposed to not create a password?

OS X :: Unable To Login To Network / Login Disabled And Connection Failed

Apr 15, 2010

G4 MDD networked with Mini for approx. 3 years now via a LinkSys BEFSR41 wired router. Ethernet cables are CAT6's with gold-plated ends. Did an erase/install (+ updates) of Panther on G4. ISP is Comcast Cable. Just upgraded my Motorola modem from Surfboard 5100 to SB 5101 yesterday. My network settings are ok...file sharing is turned on...I can ping each 'puter from the other (showing my connection is good).

I have internet access (showing that the router is still good according to Cisco). Now, however, I can't even bring up the window on the G4 asking for my pw....all I get is connection failed, no response from the server. From the Mini, I get Unknown User, incorrect password or login is disabled. I haven't a clue what the problem can be. Everything I do daily depends upon the network connection.

Software :: Won't Use G5 / Blue Screen Freeze Before Login

Jan 7, 2009

My iMac G5 (running 10.4.11) freezes at the blue screen, after recognizing the mouse, but before the login window. Some form of energy saver must be working because after the blue screen dims, moving the mouse will brighten it.

Steps I've taken:
Hardware test - everything passed (RAM, logic board, airport, display, etc...)
Zeroed the computer (7 times) and fresh reinstall

I CAN boot up in Safe Mode, Single User Mode, and Verbose mode. I can boot from CD, Knoppix CD, and into Target Disk mode (thank god for this MacBook I'm on now...)

Here's the system log (I've edited in comments and out personal info):

On a Mac Book Air and a Mac Book Pro we have had a sudden problem.  The Air came with Lion installed, the Pro just got upgraded to Lion.  We got a new login banner that must be displayed.  It is about 10 lines long.  We put it in, and on reboot it covers the login boxes for user name and password.  We can't find any way to dismiss the banner and login.  What can we do.

OS X Mavericks :: Use Wireless To Login To AD Domain At Login

Jun 25, 2014

OS X Maverick (10.9.3)..I have an iMac I need to have the user at the login window, log into AD.  The iMac does not have an operable ethernet port.  I suspect the iMac is old enough, the thunderbolt port is video only, since a known working thunderbolt to ethernet adapter did not connect (I think the iMac is Mid 2011 and I suspect the iMac is out of warranty).  Wireless works fine, and I have made the iMac a member of the domain using the private network, after logging in locally. I cannot create the user's mobile account, because I need to have the iMac use wireless at login, connecting to the private network, at login.   

Is there a way to have the login process use wireless to initiate the login for the mobile account and creation of said account?I know there is a way to do this under Windows, just hope there is a way under OS X.

Intel Mac :: Unable To Login

Apr 10, 2012

My iMac is only 5 months old. I cannot get past the login screen. When I click on a profile to get the login rectangle nothing happens. I even tried a usb mouse rather than my bluetooth mouse - no response. I have restarted the machine and no luck.

I am presently running it on the repair disk. I also had problems getting past the language selector - it eventually continues on to where I could select the disk utility.

Info:iMac, iOS 5.0.1, 8 gb ram

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Login Into It?

May 23, 2012

I have a MacBookPro late 2008 with a Samsung SSD and updated 10.7.4 Lion.Last week I had to install VirtualBox for my job, after I've run some programs in a virtual ubuntu system, I turned off the system and on the next boot I have not been able to login.

Keyboard and trackpad do not respond or even the usb.I've reset both PRAM and SMC but the problem remains.Then I tried to change hdd with one that had changed recently (with Lion 10.7.2).It all works, keyboard, trackpad and all ports.I repaired the permissions on the SSD and I performed the check of errors, but the problem still remains.

PowerPC :: Screen Looks Dimmer After Login

Apr 6, 2007

I finally realized that I'm not crazy and my screen -does- look dimmer than normal. I checked the "Automatically dim for this power source setting" thing and the issue is not that. At the login prompt screen, everything is nice and bright, but the screen will dim to maybe 80% of that brightness once I log into any user.

OS X :: 10.5.6 Update - Unable To Login To Bank

Dec 15, 2008

I am suddenly unable to log in to First Direct - I put in my user name and it simply refreshes the page asking me to input it again. It was fine earlier today before I updated. I phoned and they said there was no problem. I used my partner's Mac (with 10.5.5) and, sure enough, it's fine on there. Yet again, a software update solves a bunch of problems and then creates a few more.

OS X ::unable To Login Authentication & Dictionary

Apr 29, 2009

when I press "Command+Control+D" when i hover over a word to look up its meaning in Dictionary it doesn't do anything... and when I Control-Click it and select "Look up in Dictionary" it doesnt do anything either... and I tried doing both things when I had Dictionary running in the background and when it was closed and nothing.... so, what can I do?

since i got my macbook i used to always close the lid to put it to sleep between classes and every time I open it, it asks me for authentication and password... now, it's not doing that! and if I close it, and perhaps, go to the bathroom or something, anybody can open and it logs in w/o password....
maybe I changed something in Settings w/o realizing but can't remember...

I just remembered! in iTunes, I want to disable the little link button to iTunes Store next to each song/artist/etc... I know if I disable iTunes Store from Parental Controls, it'll do it.... but if I do, I won't be able to download Apps! How can I turn them off??

MacBook :: Keyboard Not Responding So Unable To Login

Dec 22, 2009

I have a first gen 13 inch MacBook aluminum. It was dropped on the corner a few months ago but has preformed fine ever since. I have been using it up until yesterday without a problem. Although yesterday I noticed the airport wireless icon was reporting and exclamation point icon and it was having trouble finding and connecting to networks my iPhone was connecting without a problem. Today I boot up and the boot time is very slow and sometimes hangs.

It takes 10 minutes to get to the login screen and when it does I can move the mouse but the keyboard won't respond. So I can't type my password to login. The mouse moves but when I click a button nothing happens. I booted in safe mode and off the os x disk with the same issue. However I used key commands to do that and selected a boot disk using the keyboard and the mouse to do that so I know the work. Can I bypass my loginscreen somehow? I'm most concerned about my data and I plane to get a hard drive first thing tomorrow.
