    Hold down the Option key while you boot your Mac. Then, it should show you a selection of devices. Click your flash drive and it will boot from that.

  • Facebook images, profile photos, cover photos are not loading. Only small blue square with question mark. Same thing in Safari, FireFox, Chrome.

    Since July on MacBook Pro facebook images, profile photos, cover photos are not loading. Only small blue square with question mark. Same thing in Safari, FireFox, Chrome. Everything is up to date including last version of Adobe Flash. And watching YouTube also a problem. Video is skipping, freezing for few seconds and jumps forward. At the same time on Toshiba with Windows Vista under the same account, same wi-fi connection everything works fine.
    Please help with sugesstions to fix the issue.

    Seems like problem is solved but it might be temporarily. Anyway. Click on the image, it will open facebook photo browser. Image is not loading so right click on the blue box with question mark, save image as. It will start downloading but without any success since browser do not see the image. After this attempt refresh the page and close all tabs with facebook. Try to open facebook once again. For some reason after this weird actions all images displayed properly. Do not know for how long but now it works.

  • Safari Quicktime plug-in is showing me a Q with question mark in the middle

    Safari Quicktime plug-in is showing me a Q with question mark in the middle.
    Anyone know what this could be about?
    Just upgraded to Quicktime Pro; then the Q-question started showing up as web pages were opened.
    Don't think my QT prefs changed inbetween un-pro and registration.
    iMac G5   Mac OS X (10.4.9)  

    Hi Bill
    Welcome to Apple Discussion
    Several places to check
    Safari Preferences>Security>Web Content: 4 boxes selected
    System Preferences: Quicktime>Advanced settings:
    Enable flash ought to be checked
    - Mime Settings: still images - everything but Photoshop, Flash Pic and PDF selected; video - at least Quicktime Movie. Miscellaneous - nothing checked.
    Make sure your Flash plug-in is up-to-date. Latest version is 9.0.45. You can check your current version here.
    If you have an older version, download a current copy from here. If you need to install, Safari opens to an Adobe site after the install, confirming the installation worked correctly. Quit Safari and "repair permissions" via Disk Utility in your Utilities folder before you restart Safari.
    If you don't need to upgrade the Flash plug-in, still "repair permissions" to make sure permissions are up-to-date.

  • Iphone 3g S viewing email pics are showing as blue boxes with question mark

    I am trying to view an e-mail on my iphone 3g S and the pics are not displaying. Instead little blue boxes with question marks are showing. Any ideas on why this is happening?

    The pictures couldn't be loaded due to one or more reasons. Some common reasons are: your email server timed out, the photo was taking too long to load, you had poor signal strength, the file was corrupted, the download failed, or the photo couldn't be displayed because the file type wasn't supported.

  • MacBook won't start - shows flashing folder icon with question mark

    When I attempted a Spotlight search, my MacBook froze. I shut it down, and when I start again I get the sound, the blue screen, and then a flashing folder icon with a question mark. I tried starting with Option pressed down; didn't work, and now I don't even get the flashing folder icon, just the blue screen. Any suggestions?

    The flashing folder with question mark means the computer can't find a working OS on the computer. This may mean your hard drive has failed.
    Try holding the Shift key while starting up the machine. This puts the machine into Safe Mode.
    If you have your install discs, insert Install Disc 1 and start up the computer while holding down the C key. When the Installer has loaded, choose a language. From the Utilities menu, choose *Disk Utility*. Does your hard drive show up here? If so, click on its icon (the one with manufacturer name & capacity, NOT "Macintosh HD"), and then click on the *Repair Disk* button.
    If booting in Safe mode doesn't help or you don't have your install discs, you need to bring the computer to an Apple store and have the folks there look. If Disk Utility doesn't list your hard drive, it has very likely failed and will need to be replaced. If your machine is out of warranty, you're better off replacing it yourself, as it's very easy to do.

  • Refinement Panel show "file name" values with question mark instead of spaces

    I customized Refinement Panel to refine by file name. In some cases the value (file name) is shown with question mark instead of space. It looks like gibberish and the refine by that value doesn't bring the result.
    Any ideas how to solve?

  • Blue Square with question mark instead of pictures

    I'm trying to open a website, but certain pictures won't load. They are replaced by a blue box with a question mark inside. I've tried downloading flashplayer 10 but that doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?

    OK, I get the point about the password, but therein lies a clue. If this is not happening to other sites, then there is a possibility that there may be an error (or several) on the coding or image locations at that page/site.
    It would be a good idea to see if anyone else is having such problems, although this might not give a definitive answer. Flashplayer 10 may not help this problem if the problem images are JPG. The JPG with a problem is indicated by a blue square with a question mark. A Flash problem shows a white/grey cube icon.
    Methinks, that if other sites are not giving problems, it is the way this site is coded.

  • Missing Plug-In and Getting Blue Squares with Question Mark

    I am on a brand new pc, 64-bit Windows 7, all programs downloaded in the last week. I have used safari for years on my mac and want to keep using it on the pc but video and images are not displaying. For video content it says "missing plug-in" but doesn't tell me what plug-in I need. Some images do not display and I get the blue square with a question mark.
    I downloaded a plug-in from apple but it seems to be for Firefox. I installed the 64-bit beta Flash player and it didn't help. The next site I tried to access told me I needed the Flash player so I tried downloading the regular Flash player even though I knew it wouldn't work. It didn't download and seems to have taken the beta with it, wherever it went (have searched computer). Things that don't display in safari work just fine when I switch to Chrome.
    I have the latest version of Quicktime which came with iTunes. I messed with some of the default program settings, trying to get QuickTime to take over whenever possible but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.
    On my mac I had used Flip4Mac to take care of similar issues. I didn't think I would have similar problems on the pc. Help anyone?

    Blue box with a question mark means that images are not available now.
    Servers storing those images may be down.

  • Sent Mail shows as "Delivered" but has question mark in icon

    I have a user with a few sent emails to multiple parties that are listed as "Transferred" in the mail properties but have the question mark icon next to it. The definition of the question mark icon reads: "The item couldnt be delivered to the destination post office or it failed to transfer to the Internet."
    Am I right to assume that these emails are successfully being sent out but are receiving the question mark icon due to an error on a recipient's end?

  • My MacBook won't boot past the grey screen showing a folder sign with question mark, My MacBook won't boot past the grey screen showing a folder sign with question mark, My MacBook won't boot past the grey screen showing a folder sign with question mark

    Hi, I need some serious help immediately.  I have been using an external hard disc to watch movies and stuff on my MacBook. However last night I removed the external hard disc accidentally without closing the programs that were still using the data from the hard disk and hence the complete MacBook got hanged and nothing responded. I tried using command Q to shut down the program buy it didn't help either. So finally I gave up and shut down the MacBook manually by pressing the power on/off button.
    However when I tried restarting my MacBook I faced a serious problem. The start up won't boot beyond the grey screen showing a folder sign with a question mark sign in it .. I just don't know what to do. Somebody please help me and guide me through this problem
    Awaiting quick response
    Gratitude in advance

    If you try booting your Mac holding down the Option key, you should see the icon for Macintosh HD. Try selecting that to boot. If you can get in that way, go to System Preferences > Startup Disk and select your Mac HD, then click Restart.
    If you can't see the Mac HD, the volume may indeed need repair as Niel said.

  • When website or messages are opened that include pictures,all we get is a blue square with question mark I the centre. No pictures

    When we access a site,or receive email with pictures we often get a blue square with a question mark in it, no picture ?

    Try a reset: Simultaneously hold down the Home and On buttons until the device shuts down. Ignore the off slider if it appears. Once shut down is complete, if it doesn't restart on it own, turn the device back on using the On button. In some cases it also helps to double click the Home button and close all apps BEFORE doing the reset.

    Hello Ariane,
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    5. Click Repair Disk, (not Repair Permissions). Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive & clear caches.)
    If perchance you can't find your install Disc, at least try it from the Safe Boot part onward.
    If 10.7.0 or later...
    Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.

  • My ipad will show a blue box with question marks where there are pictures, many times but not all; on top it  Time togo to apple payed support?

    So when i go to a webpage it shows only some pictures. Nothing on instagram or pinterest. Facebook ok though. An d then i can't download apps that need to be updated or new. I can't restore my magazine purchases. Was happening even before latest software was installed. Have reinstalled the software twice. Have restarted ipad numeroustimes. Nothing.  Help!!! Or should i pay for apple support?

    only when I'm using my home router
    Try turning the router off for about 5 minutes, then turn it back on. Same with your Mac.
    Then go to  ~/Library/Caches/
    For Lion v10.7x:  To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library
    Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.
    Now try Safari ...
    Tip ...  since you are running v10.7 Lion, the only way to reinstall Safari would be to use Lion Recovery. Downloading and installing Safari from the Apple support page will not work on Lion.

  • On websites, images are showing up as boxes with question marks. What do I do to fix it?

    It just started yesterday, out of the blue. Also, sometimes, a URL without a www. will say that Safari cannot recognize the server. It happens on, too.

    Don't use Safari in 10.6.8 or earlier, Apple hasn't released a update for Safari (Safari 6) to fix security issues and I don't think they ever will because they are complete a-holes if you don't or can't upgrade your OS to one of the two latest ones in circulation, currently 10.7 and 10.8.
    Use Firefox instead and see if your issues continue, if they do then run through this list of fixes.
