Try a restart.
Do a backup, using either Time Machine or a cloning program, to ensure files/data can be recovered. Two backups are better than one.
Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work. The intent is to see if it is specific to one account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.
Isolating an issue by using another user account
Try booting into the Safe Mode using your normal account.  Disconnect all peripherals except those needed for the test. Shut down the computer and then power it back up after waiting 10 seconds. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear and again when you log in. The boot up is significantly slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a directory check, and disables all startup and login items, among other things. When you reboot normally, the initial reboot may be slower than normal. If the system operates normally, there may be 3rd party applications which are causing a problem. Try deleting/disabling the third party applications after a restart by using the application un-installer. For each disable/delete, you will need to restart if you don’t do them all at once.

  • Bootcamp issue with Security Update 2014-005.

  • My audiobooks just recently starting playing with an echo - any suggestions to fix this issue?

    My audiobooks recently started playing with an echo.  Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

    I've got to agree with Allan. It sounds like the hard drive is corrupt at least. It's possible it might be physically failing. Without backups, it's possible your data is already gone. You need a professional to help you.
    If you do not have an Apple Store near you or simply don't have the time to spare, there are some things you can try, but you must understand that it's possible these things could make the chances of recovering your data worse than they already are. Perform the instructions to follow at your own risk!
    First, you can try repairing your hard drive with Disk Utility. If that works, see if you can start up the machine. If you can, the very first thing you need to do is back up any data you don't want to lose. You may still need to take other steps, as your system may be damaged as well, but getting the data is the important part.
    If Disk Utility cannot repair the problems, you can try DiskWarrior. It can repair problems that Disk Utility cannot. However, it also increases the risk of destroying your data if it fails. If it works and you can start up the machine, do the same as I advised for following success with Disk Utility.
    If repairs (with either) were successful, but the machine still won't start up, you can try reinstalling the system. Hold down command-R at startup and then just install right on top of the existing system. If all goes well, you'll be able to start up afterwards and can get your data backed up. If all goes badly, it'll further decrease the chances of getting your data back.
    If neither can repair the damage, you're in bad shape. You will need a professional to help you, unless you are willing to lose all your data.

  • I used to be able to open .pdf documents on my MacBook Pro using FireFox with NO problems, all of a sudden NOW they won't open and i get "unsupported" error messages. What the ****? I need to fix this ASAP! Can anyone help in simple non geek language?

    THANKS.

    Depending on which version of Firefox you're using, it no longer currently supports the plug-in provided with Adobe Reader. You have to use PDF Plugin 2.4.4. Just disable the Adobe plugin and use the Schubert plugin.

  • Security update 2008-005 for OSX 10.4.

    My mate has an intel iMac running OSX Tiger 10.4. which is now not starting up. This problem occurred as he was downloading the 2008-005 security update yesterday. Any suggestions or solutions on how to get his iMac up and running again please? He didn't run disc utility before-hand. I am sure he will do so in the future , assuming he can the Mac going again.

  • I am trying to install a registered copy of Photoshop Lightroom that I never installed on my Apple iMac with software version 10.10.  I get the message "Adobe Lightroom 1.  Cannot be installed on this disk because a newer version of this software already

    I am trying to install a registered copy of Photoshop Lightroom that I never installed on my Apple iMac with software version 10.10.
    I get the message “Adobe Lightroom 1.  Cannot be installed on this disk because a newer version of this software already exists on this disk”
    If it is here – I cannot find it anywhere, and I don’t believe that I ever installed it.
    I have ordered the upgrade to Lightroom 5.0 and figured that I should install Lightroom 1.0 first.
    How can I solve this problem

    Actually when LR 5 starts for the first time after it is installed it will have a dialog to Buy, Try or Enter a serial number. You select Enter a serial number and enter the LR 5 serial number first and then because it is an upgrade serial number it will ask for the serial number of a Previous version. You then enter the LR 1 serial number.

  • I am trying to update an ipod version 2.2 with itunes but I keep getting an error (-1).  Is this an hardware issue according to Apple and if so is there any way to fix this.?

    I am trying to update an ipod version 2.2 with itunes but I keep getting an error (-1).  Is this an hardware issue according to Apple and if so is there any way to fix this.?

    Error 1 or -1
    This may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow Troubleshooting security software issues, and restore your device on a different known-good computer. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.
    If you disabled yuor computer's security software then that indicates a hardware problem,
    I would say it is not workth fixint your old. likely a 1G. iPOd.

    Hello Abdo_Zain,
    I would be concerned too if I was not able to gain access to my iPad.  If you are unsure what your Apple ID is, you can find the steps in this article:
    Apple ID: How to find your Apple ID
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5625
    You can reset a forgotten Apple ID password by going to the following link:
    Apple - iForgot
    https://iforgot.apple.com
    Also, you may be able to skip the step of entering your Apple ID if you are setting up the iPad for the first time.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,
    Sheila M.

  • Apple is asking me to answer my security questions but I can't remember the answers. Also I would reset them but my rescue email is no longer in use and I cannot even remember what it was. Is there any way to fix this mess?

    So basically I need to confirm my identity but I  can't because I can't remember the answers to my security questions. I scheduled a meeting with Apple, to see if they can fix it. Nod I would just reset them from my rescue email, but I don't know what that email is and it's also no longer in use.
    Do you know of any way to fix this?

    You won't be able to change your rescue email address until you can answer your questions, you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple in your country to get the questions reset.

    When they've been reset you can then use the steps half-way down this page to update your rescue email address for potential future use : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312

  • When I watch tv shows in Front Row that I've bought off iTunes the audio gradually falls out of sync with the video. It does not happen with other files that I have converted into mp4s. Any ideas for fixing this? It's a huge bummer...

    When I watch tv shows in Front Row that I've bought off iTunes the audio gradually falls out of sync with the video. It does not happen with other files that I have converted into mp4s. Any ideas for fixing this? It's a huge bummer...

    I too have the same problem.  The audio drop out of sync in about 5 sec in not uncommon for the audio to be 30+ sec behind video.  Apple needs to fix this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   its a joke,  my iphone is all messed up after the last update as well.  at one time not to long ago apple products and software were top rated, not so much any more, more and more problems are showing up and apple is unwilling or unalbe to fix the many issues.  Apple needs to fix the audio sync problem, it not the computer hardware or other software it ITUNES!!!!,  there is no workaround other then hitting pause and hitting pause and hitting pause to temp fix the problem. 

  • HT1476 my iPhone 4 will no longer charge. It is also not recognised in iTunes. There seems to be a problem with the connector slot. I've tried other cables and other computers/plugs but the connection is not being made. Any suggestions?

    It seems to me that the connection port is faulty.

    Looks like a Visit to an Apple Store or AASP (Authorized Apple Service Provider) is the Next Step...
    Be sure to make an appointment first...
