    Can't get past grey screen + weird cursor corruption

    a few months ago my Macbook Pro (2.16ghz intel core duo purchased in 2006) froze completely giving the spinning rainbow cursor. The cursor also showed a small rectangular box of faint blue horizontal lines behind it, which moved when the cursor moved. It would not go away at all, even when...

    My computer is slow and I'd like thoughts on why!

    I really apologise if this topic is too vague or something, but this problem has been bugging me for so long and I want to fix it! I'm currently running Tiger on an iMac g4 that I think was purchased around 6 years ago, if my memory serves me correctly. The problem is that generally if I...

    Random Odd Text/Font Problems...

    So does anyone have any explanation why my computer suddenly and randomly (I had not installed or updated any software) decided that some of my fonts are missing? I noticed it when I started up Adium, all the fonts on my contact list and messages had been reset to a plain, large text. I was...

    FAT32 External Partition Won't Mount

    Recently I purchased a LaCie 500GB external hard drive (http://www.lacie.com/uk/products/product.htm?pid=10651). When I first connected it to my computer I was still running Jaguar, and it would not mount. It showed up in disk utility but wouldn't mount from there either. I assumed this was just...

    Tiger Update Problem - Computer Freezes on OS X Load Screen

    Last night I tried installing iTunes and the laest Tiger update through Software Update. When the Tiger update started, the computer seemed to freeze and I got the rainbow spinning ball cursor. Well, being the impatient idiot that I am, I force quit Software Update and planned to do it again...

    Bugs on my screen? :\

    This is probably the wrong section to put this, but I didn't know where else it could go. So okay, short but sweet- Any ideas why there are sometimes tiny little crawling things going across my computer screen? Like actual living things....

    Freezing for no apparent reason + question about force quitting

    Hey all, sincere apologies if this is a rpeat thread, but I did a search and couldn't seem to find anything similar to what I've been experiencing. For the past few days, at very random times, my computer sometimes freezes, as in, it doesn't let me click on anything. For example, I was...

    Weird Mouse Double Click

    I apologise if this has already been covered, but searching for the words 'mouse' and 'double click' doesn't really bring up any relevant topics as it's quite a vague search term, and I didn't know what else to call it. A week or two ago I noticed my mouse acting strangely. Most of the times I...

    FTP won't connect

    I recently had a few problems with my computer, the biggest one being an invalid node structure. Well, I got it fixed, my friend ran Disk Warrior on the hard drive, and completely reinstalled the system. All the problems I had before are solved.... except the problem of my FTP just not wanting...

    Burning DVD+R

    I have to reformat so I'm backing up all my files. I bought some DVDs to do it, and I've tried burning music onto one of them in iTunes. It says the media is not the correct type for this operation. So I tried doing it in the finder but it didn't work. I've just realised that I bought DVD+R, not...

    Shared Library Error & Flash Not Working

    I did a search for this and found a few topics, some of which said to repair the disk permissions and reinstall the OS, both of which I have done. I can't open IE, Photoshop, Illustrator, ImageReady, my Flash is not working and I tried to reinstall it but the installer won't even open because of...

    FTP won't work!

    I'm very sorry if this is the wrong section, I wasn't sure which it should go in. For the past few weeks I haven't been able to connect to my FTP on any FTP clients I've tried (about 3 or 4). I'm definitely using the correct username, password and server because I've checked with my host several...

    User Account Problem

    I recently made a new user account for my mum. But the first account was in her name because she put it in when we bought the computer, even though we both paid for half. Anyway, I'm the one who uses it the most, so all the preferences, desktop pictures etc. were mine. So I made this new...

    Error 95 on all DMGs :\

    Earlier tonight I was using CandyBar to customise some icons. I restarted my computer and noticed that my Sega Genesis emulator icon was a question mark in the dock. It wouldn't open, so I tried downloading it again. The DMG kept getting error 95, no mountable system files. Then I tried a few...

    Weird sound problem... :\

    A few nights ago I noticed that when I plugged in headphones to my Mac (iMac, OS 10.2.8) that the left one wasn't working. Well I thought it was just something wrong with the headphones themselves, but today the left speaker also stopped working. BUT when I switch my computer on, the start...

    Recording Using Internal Microphone

    I've got an iMac 10.2.8, with the microphone built into the moniter. Well I've never really needed or wanted to use it before, until now. I searched for similar topics to this but couldn't really seem to find one that had the answer I'm looking for. Can anyone tell me how I can use it to...
