Audio waveform will not display

I just bought a new iMac and have opened a previous FCE4 file with it. The sequence will not display the audio waveform at all... it used to do fine displaying the waveform on my Powerbook G4. I've toggled the preferences to display audio waveform globally and also for the individual sequence, to no avail. The audio does play back, just no waveform display.
Any help appreciated.

First, make sure the track settings aren't too low. If the track height is too small the waveforms won't show. If that's OK then quit the application and trash the waveform cache. If you don't know where that is look in your FCE system settings. It'll be at the bottom of the first panel.

  • IChat will not display status messages.

    I'm having a problem - iChat will not display any "available" status messages. All away messages display properly, but any unique status messages will not display, nor does the word "available". I have restarted both iChat and my MacBook several times, deleted the com.ichat.AIM preferences file, but it seems nothing I do will make my buddy's unique status messages display.
    I did not previously use Chax but downloaded it to see if it would help; it didn't. I'm willing to delete it if it will solve my problem.
    Any help?

    As you either suspected or found out the Saved Status Messages are in
    The fact they didn't display would suggest that they may have become corrupted and the deletion of the .plist would have helped.
    BUT you went on to mention that the Available Choice also does not display.
    This would suggest one of two things.
    1) Either you are not fully Logged in to the AIM servers properly
    Do your Buddies see you are On-line and Available ?
    Do they perceive your Status change ?
    Can you Text chat to people ?
    Can you send files or Pic in Text chats ?
    Try Deleting and restarting iChat to see if that helps
    2) Something about iChat or it's support folders (the bits that make the Available show up), that are at fault.
    In this case try deleting
    This controls which accounts login and help the app to run some of the features such as the Video/Audio part and Text Messaging.
    I would do these one at a time just so you know which it was that fixed it.

  • Z97 PC MATE - Second GPU will not display / black screen

    Using Z97 PC MATE with 2 nvidia cards (GeForce GTX970 and GeForce GETX750ti). My goal is to use the 750ti for dual display with the 970 reserved for compute in a 3D software package (houdini simulations). If both cards are installed on the mobo and one monitor is plugged into the 750ti, it will not display, not even the BIOS screen. Also there is no audio, there is normally a chime when the OS lock screen is reached and that never plays.
    The 750ti is plugged into the PCEe 2.0 slot, the 970 the 3.0 slot. Both cards can display in their respective buses by themselves if only one card is installed. If both are installed, the 970 will output a display as expected.  I have also tried an older quadro card in the 2.0 slot and it also defaulted to the 970 in the 3.0 slot. With one display plugged into the 970, and one in the 750ti I have gotten an image to display on the 750ti. But never with only one monitor plugged into the 750 attempting to use that card as the main display.
    I have used m flash to update the bios to 4.6, but I never used the disc which came with the mobo to update. I thought maybe there is a GPU display priority in the BIOS but I'm not seeing it. I see there is a way to prioritize UEFI and legacy, and Gen1, 2 or 3, but don't know how that should be set up for this (if that is the problem). I would think if that were the case though the audio at the lock screen would still play, but I don't know.
    My current nvidia driver version is 342.22, I am using Ubuntu 14.04 as linux OS operates better with the software I am using. I have also posted to the Ubuntu forums about this, but thought I would post here because the BIOS screen doesn't display which makes me think it could be hardware related. Although all of the hardware is detected properly and appears to be functioning as expected.
    This issue was reproduced with and without the HDD connected. 
    i7 4790k
    EVGA GTX970 and EVGA GTX750ti
    Z97 PC MATE
    32gb PNY DDR3-1866 240-pin DIMM
    Antec Truepower Classic 750w gold certified
    PNY Optima 480gb SSD  - PNY SSD7SC480GOPT-RB
    Hitachi 2TB ultrastar HDD
    I am not sure at this point how to continue troubleshooting this issue, or if this is not possible for this mobo and I just didn't recognize that. One test I was considering is putting the 970 in my old computer (MSI 970FX-GD70) and seeing if the results are the same. Will post any additional required information.

    Did you install your graphic driver when both vgas are on? Let the driver detect both vga then you can just switch cable and display well. Use the latest 344.65 driver. As for the 3D package, you need to make sure the software support or can change the settings that which vga to compute.
    But there's one thing I need to make sure first, does your vga work with only one vga on pcie 2.0 slot? Just wanna be sure it's not faulty slot...

  • Satellite A300 PSAG0A - Games Will Not Display in Full Screen Size

    I have a large number of games installed on my computer. At least 90% of them will not display in full screen size but display in a small window with a large amount of black screen surrounding the window. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit. However, I do not think it has anything to do with Windows as my husband runs the same games on his Toshiba Satellite L300, running exactly the same version of windows, and they all display in full screen size.
    Altering the screen resolution makes no difference. And, of course, I do select the full screen option in the games.
    Also, sometimes when I have been playing a game and then closed it I find that my desktop picture has shrunk to the smaller size - the same size as the window in which the game was displayed when I was playing it.
    The games work fine in every other way, it is only this small screen size which is driving me nuts.
    I hope that someone can help me with this!!

    Yes, as far as I can tell I have the latest driver. But, even this is confusing to me because....
    My graphics media accelerator is Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family. The installed driver version is The release date for this is 2007-09-13, as far as I can tell from web searches.
    However, on the Toshiba website for driver downloads, the available driver version is PV. The date is 2006-12-28. I have downloaded this driver and attempted to install it. I get the message that it has been installed but, after rebooting and checking the installed driver version is still
    Perhaps, the PV version does not actually install because it is older than the currently installed version. I would have thought that the driver version with the higher number would be the newer one, but perhaps this is not the case as the dates do not seem to support this theory.
    So now I ask myself, firstly, if the driver available for download on the Toshiba website is not the newest one, then why is it there?
    Secondly, if it is the newest one then why will it not install on my computer?

  • The menubar will not display in full screen

    I have a strange problem in fullscreen mode, on my Macbook pro 15"
    I LOVE fullscreen, and infact the next macbook I will get is the 11" air because of its size and because full screen is so nice to work with.
    But I have a strange problem which I can't find a solution for.
    Suddenly the menubar will not display it self when I move the mouse to the top of the screen. The only way I can access the menu bar is by exiting full screen (ctrl + Cmd + F) and the toggel it back on after I have used the menubar
    This actually makes fullscreen mode useless and its driving me nuts, because this should not happen on Apple software. I would expect these sorts of behaviour on windows but not in osx.
    Anybody have a hint about what to do?     <<<<< GO THERE
    Try this:  make a temporary, backup copy (if you don't already have a backup copy) of the library and try the following:
    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file,, that resides in your
         User/Home()/Library/ Preferences folder.
    2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
         User/Home()/Library/Caches/ folder. 
    Click to view full size
    3 - launch iPhoto and try again.
    NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding down the Option key when launching iPhoto.  You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.

  • I was recently sent a very large emoji message amd now when i try to acces messages it will not display mesagges and then will bring me back to the home page

    was recently sent a very large emoji message amd now when i try to acces messages it will not display mesagges and then will bring me back to the home page

    Quit the messages app and reset your phone.
    Go to the Home screen and double click the Home button. That will reveal the row of recently used apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on the app in question until it jiggles and displays a minus sign. Tap the minus sign to actually quit the app. Then tap anywhere on the screen above that bottom row to return the screen to normal. Then restart the app and see if it works normally. Then reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart.
    After the phone restarts go into Messages and delete the thread containing the problem message.

  • Newly created images will not display in Firefox 8 for Mac. Same images appear in other browsers. Why?

    1. Specific new images are uploaded but will not display in Firefox 8 on my Mac with OS 10.6.8. (Does appear in other browsers, e.g., Chrome and Opera, and appears on Firefox 8 for PC.) Also, other images on the page display.
    2. I have cleared cache, cookies, etc., in Recent History, and restarted both application and computer.
    3. I've tried creating GIF, JPG and PNG, but none show on the page in Firefox on my Mac. I can see the offending image in other browsers such as Chrome on the same computer, and on Firefox on PC. Offending pages are in both PHP and HTML: and
    Image links: and

    You can use these steps to check if images are blocked:
    *Open the web page that has the images missing in a browser tab.
    *Click the website favicon ([[Site Identity Button]]) on the left end of the location bar.
    *Click the "More Information" button to open the "Page Info" window with the Security tab selected (also accessible via "Tools > Page Info").
    *Go to the <i>Media</i> tab of the "Tools > Page Info" window.
    *Select the first image link and scroll down through the list with the Down arrow key.
    *If an image in the list is grayed and there is a check-mark in the box "<i>Block Images from...</i>" then remove that mark to unblock the images from that domain.

  • Firefox will not display on the screen even though with Process Explorer I see Firefox.exe active but no CPU usage

    I use Firefox v10.0.2 as default browser on Dell XPS8300 e/w Intel Core i5 & Windows 7 Ultimate and Compaq Presario CQ57 e/w Intel Core i3 & Windows 7 Home. More frequently on the (about 90% of attempts) than the Dell (50% of attempts) Firefox will not display to the screen when I click on icon. When it happens I cannot display other programs. I specifically say display because I believe Firefox has started. To circumvent the problem I installed Process Explorer on both machines and start this program first then click on Firefox icon. When problem occurs I can see Firefox.exe process in Process list; some CPU consumed but, then, no CPU activity. If I click on Firefox icon again another process opens in Process list but with same response - some CPU consumed and then no CPU activity. If I have 2 processes running and kill the 1st process, the 2nd will display and everything from then on is normal. If I do not open a 2nd process but kill the 1st process then click on Firefox icon Firefox is displayed and everything from then on is normal. This problem has occurred since original installation on both new machines. I've updated video drivers in both machines.

    Ok, let's see if we can fix this and get it working for you!
    First, if you start Firefox in [[safe mode|safe mode]] (restart your computer first, then when you open Firefox, hold down the shift key) does it start up more reliably? This is usually caused by a faulty add-on. If it does help, then restart Firefox, go into the Firefox button, then add-ons, and disable your extensions one by one until you find the trouble maker.
    Also, try updating to Firefox 11, it has several bug fixes that might make life easier here.
    Just as a few basic troubleshooting steps to make sure we have all the bases covered,
    Run all Windows Updates, install all needed service packs, etc.
    Update all your plugins (Flash, Java, etc.): [].
    Download and Install MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, run a full Scan. []. This helps check that there are no viruses on your computer causing issues. you can uninstall this program after you clean off any infections.

  • Updated to the latest revision. Firefox will not display my chosen home page without clicking on home icon.

    Since latest update...Firefox will not allow a new page to be opened from a link in a current page. It will allow a new tab to be opened (with tabbed browsing checked) but i prefer a new page. Even in tabbed browsing links to things like a pdf will not work at all.
    Firefox WILL NOT close. X-ing out will close the window but I can not get back to Firefox without closing it in task manager.
    Firefox will not display my chosen home page without clicking on home icon.

    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
    *Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

  • Adobe Illustrator file will not display correctly when logged in as a user

    I am working with an Adobe Illustrator CS2 file that will open and display correctly if I log in as Administrator, but will not display correctly if I am logged on as a user. The error message is that there is not enough memory to display the file correctly and I am forced into preview mode. The user Home folder is on a server. Other than this, I have made certain that the criteria for opening the file match under both interfaces. I have opened the AI CS2 file on other Macs and it opens fine. I conclude that the problem is with the user Home folder, but beyond that, I'm stumped. Any help will be appreciated.

  • Photos show up as thumbnail but when I click on them they will not display

    Photos show up as thumnails but when I click on them they will not display. I get a exclamation mark in a dotted line box

    That occurs when the library has lost the link to the original file. This is a result of a damaged library database file, Library6.iPhoto. You can try rebuilding the library from within iPhoto to see if you can recover the photos by launching iPhoto with the Command+Option keys depressed and follow the instructions to rebuild the library. Select the first three options. However, it's iffy.
    You can rebuild the library with iPhoto Library Manager as it create a new library, leaving the original one intact, by reading the AlbumData.xml file and copying what it needs. You will be able to recover the photos, albums, keywords, titles and comments. However, books, slideshows, and calendars will not be recovered. Here's how:
    Using iPhoto Library Manager to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    1 -Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    2 -Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your User/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
    3 - Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File->Rebuild Library menu option
    4 - In the next window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    5 - Click on the Create button.
    Note: It may take some time to create the new library if you have a lot of photos. Report back on how long it took and how many photos you have in the library so we can give other users an idea of how long it may take.
    It that doesn't work you'll have to start over with a new library and import the Originals folder from the old library as follows:
    Creating a new library while preserving the Events from the original library.
    Move the existing library folder to the desktop.
    Open the library package like this.
    Launch iPhoto and, when asked, select the option to create a new library.
    Drag the Originals folder from the iPhoto Library on the desktop into the open iPhoto window.
    This will create a new library with the same Events as the original library if you have the Finder checkbox unchecked in the Events preference pane.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
