    Can't Quit Preview (It's Locked Up)

    I rarely use preview for anything but this time I double clicked a file from a CD that just happened to be a 500mb tif. Preview began launching, but now it is not responding, like its basically frozen. I right clicked the icon in the dock to force quit, nothing. I opened the Force Quit...

    Powerbook G4... How can I restore it?

    A client of ours left their Powerbook G4 here after deciding they did not want to fix the bad hard drive, and after holding it here for some time, they apparently want us to now get rid of it. It's been sitting here for sometime since then, and I'm the only one around who cares to adopt it...

    Number Pad not working on Aluminum Wired Keyboard

    My number pad hasn't been working lately. It looks like some kind of setting has taken effect and I'm not sure how to fix it. For example, my numbers are now directional movements for my cursor: 2 moves it down, 4 moves it left, 6 moves it right, 8 moves it up, and 1, 3, 7, and 9 move my cursor...

    Dock not magnifying and Rollovers aren't working.

    I have an extremely frustrating and sporadic problem. I have no idea what triggers it and I have no idea how to check. Right now, whenever I roll my mouse over anything that should have an "action", it doesn't work. My dock doesn't magnify, menu rollovers on websites don't do anything, and my...

    Seriously, what causes slow downs in performance?

    And how can I fix it? I'm getting the spinning lollipop of death more often while the system catches up with my actions, and in general, it's just taking longer for my OS to do normal tasks that were once lightning quick. In theory, if you keep your software up-to-date, run routine...

    Anyone have any tips for me to be able to convert my PP2008 presentation into a movie file of some kind that I can ultimately play through internet download or in a browser?

    Performance slowing, frustating, and more spinning lollipop of death

    OS 10.5.6 2x2.8 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon I've noticed it takes a little longer to start apps, click on menu items, and normal actions like navigating through programs sometimes stalls for a short period of time - ex: the most recent problem was Photoshop taking about 5-7 seconds to respond when...

    It's the same time! Every time!

    For some reason - and this has been happening for awhile now - whenever I look at any clock randomly during the day, it always says 11:11. AM or PM... it doesn't matter. (yes its plugged in :confused: ) I finally started to acknowledge the frequency of this occurrence. What does this mean...
