    G4 iBook fan only coming on.

    I have a G4 iBook, 1Ghz, 1.25gig RAM with Airport. I normally just sleep the thing, and when I went to wake it, I got the login window, then I started trying in my password. Half way through it seemed to lock up. I had to yank the battery to turn it off. I put the battery back in and try to...

    Migrating iTunes from Windows to Mac

    This is a tuff one. Right now, do you have iTunes copy everything to that folder when you add things to your library, and have iTunes keep it organised for you? If that is the case, then this will be easy.

    Macbook Pro running Tiger. After latest AirPort update it no longer connects to a Netgear Wireless-b router. Is there a way to force the MBP to run at wireless-b speeds instead of autodetecting?

    i'm guessing that there was some jumper not set right, or the ibook can't see a drive that large.

    edit system spell checker

    i know which folder you ment, and it wasn't there. are you sure its not a folder from a different spelling app installed? and there is no forget button or selection either. again, this is 10.4.11's system wide spell checker, not some app.
