Hello! I downloaded OS X Mavericks on my Mac and my pc didn't restart properly.my desktop image doesn't appear and i can't shut down my pc. what can i do ?

These instructions must be carried out as an administrator. If you have only one user account, you are the administrator.
Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
Step 1
For this step, the title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
View ▹ Show Log List
from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
In the top right corner of the Console window, there's a search box labeled Filter. Initially the words "String Matching" are shown in that box. Enter "BOOT_TIME" (without the quotes.)
Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Note the timestamps of the BOOT_TIME log messages, which refer to the times when the system was started. Now clear the search box and scroll back in the log to the last boot time when you had the problem. Select the messages logged before the boot, during the time something abnormal was happening. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
For example, if the system was unresponsive or was failing to shut down for three minutes before you forced a restart, post the messages timestamped within three minutes before the boot time, not after. Please include the BOOT_TIME message at the end of the log extract—not at the beginning.
If there are long runs of repeated messages, please post only one example of each. Don’t post many repetitions of the same message.
☞ When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
☞ Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
Step 2
In the Console window, select
DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION ▹ System Diagnostic Reports
(not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
View ▹ Show Log List
from the menu bar.
There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of reports. A crash report has a name that begins with the name of the crashed process and ends in ".crash". A panic report has a name that begins with "Kernel" and ends in ".panic". Select the most recent of each. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.
I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
☞ If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash or panic, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
☞ Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.

    I have a 2010 Macbook Pro and am a very new user to Mac community only started to use this PC a few weeks ago.
    My Mac is just hanging and I am unable to shut it down or do anything at all.  I left it for 2.5 days hoping the battery will run flat but it is not working. Pls help! I am desperate. Tx

    In order to resolve the issue if it occurs again, more info would be helpful as to what occurred prior to the "hang." One potential fix would be to try a Safe Boot:
    After the Mac is completely shut down, push the power button and immediately after the startup tone, hold down the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
    Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
    There should be a message that says "SafeBoot." After the Mac is completely booted, try restarting and see if the issue is gone.

  • Image as drop-down text link -- image doesn't appear

    (Using Robohelp X5)
    Wondering if anybody has had anything like this happen before
    and can explain it for me???
    First line of topic is type <h1>. At the end of the
    line I have an icon that is a link to drop-down text.
    Here's where it gets weird. I compiled the help and displayed
    the .chm. Looked at the topic, the image doesn't appear, but is
    clickable (and works properly). Used the 'print' option from the
    .chm to print to .pdf. The image appears in the .pdf.
    Looked at the code, can't see anything wrong with it.
    Back in the wysiwyg editor, selected the last character of
    normal text plus the clickable icon, copied and pasted in place (so
    now have
    <text2><dropdown2><text><dropdown>)
    Removed <text><dropdown> (the original content),
    edited the code to use the proper 'name' attribute (because it was
    modified on the paste), recompiled, ran the .chm, everything
    displays properly (the image is there).
    Note: I was having similar problems with it earlier, think I
    fixed it the same way, and everything was okay for a few compiles,
    then started having the problems again.
    At this point, as far as I can see, the .html is the *same*
    as it was before, but now the image appears in the .chm. Colour me
    totally confused :-)
    Anybody have any insights as to why this could be happening?
    Thanks!

    Hi Anna Dominik,
    I apologize, I'm a bit unclear on the exact nature of the issue you are having. If you are saying that your computer isn't starting up successfully after your software upgrade, you may find the troubleshooting steps outlined in the following article helpful:

  • I purchased Adobe Premeire Elements and Photoshop Elements 10.0 in 2012. Since then my computer died.I would like to download them on this computer and am unable to do so successfully. Please advise. It was a downoad purchase with no CD

    I purchased Adobe Premeire Elements and Photoshop Elements 10.0 in 2012. Since then my computer died.I would like to download them on this computer and am unable to do so successfully. Please advise. It was a downoad purchase with no CD

    christineae
    It is not clear if your Premiere Elements 10 was a downloaded purchase from Adobe or from an authorized reseller.
    However, do you have a purchased serial number for the product?
    If you have the purchased serial number, you can download Premiere Elements 10 tryout files from the following web site
    and insert your purchased serial number in them during installation to make them your own.
    Photoshop Elements 10 Direct Download Links: Free Trials, Premiere | ProDesignTools
    It is important to read and carry out carefully that web site's "Note: Very Important Instructions" in order to avoid an Access Denied message.
    Just in case message....
    But there could be a complication with regard to files from any source.
    Adobe allows you to have the purchased activated serial number on no more than 2 of your computers.
    If your failed computer has Premiere Elements trapped on it representing 1 purchased serial number, you will be able to installed
    the purchased serial number on only one more computer. If you have the purchased activated serial number trapped on 2 failed
    computers, then you will not be able to use that purchased serial number on another computer until you deactivate at least one
    on one of the other two computers. In this case, it is only Adobe who might be able to help you. None of this may apply to you. I mention
    it as a just in case caution.
    Please let us know if you have any questions or need clarification.
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    I am using a Nvidia 4200M adapter in my Laptop, Driver 266.96, Direct X 11
    In my desktop I am using an ATI XFX 6950, latest revision drivers (I am not at home right now so I cant get that info).
    The issue I did describe above, but it was a long explanation.
    In some flash games the game files load initially and get as far as the "click to start" button. Then the flash area usually goes either all white or all black (usually depending on the falsh game default background color) and then it stays that color. Cant see anything after hitting start (usually most games have an intro video or animation before the game starts, but I cant see any of it.
    For the very few games that do start, the flash game or application does not seem to work correctly in that when the rare game starts, it wont save any game files or save files to the pc and so if I exit the game (navigate away to another page or close browser) and then later come back, even though I click the option to save games (and ensure that the flash application slider shows it can save files and lots of space) it does not save and I have to start from the beginning all the time.
    More explanation I gave above.

  • OS X Mavericks does not download, infact shows downloaded but it doesn't appear anywhere in Launchpad and neither can I download it again

    I am having trouble downloading the OS X Mavericks. In my initial attempt to download the update from the App Store, it started downloading but stalled. It wasn't paused, but just stalled. I restarted the Mac and tried to install it again. The next time the download commenced but stalled after reaching a certain point (it appears to have tried to restart from where it left off earlier), but the download doesn't continue. Says "Mac OS X Mavericks failed to download". Now on deleting the icon from Launchpad, when I try to install it again from the App Store, it shows downloaded. How do I restart the download process and install Mac OS X Mavericks? I am currently on OS X Lion 10.8.5.

    Yes, I do have an external drive, which I now disconnected and restarted the Mac to try installing. Didn't work.
    I then kept it disconnected and restarted in Safe Mode, which again when trying to download showed "Downloaded". So didn't work.
    Then tried one final time by plugging the external drive back in, and starting in normal mode and it appeared to have started downloading once again.
    Unfortunately, it didn't give up so easily and the download is now stuck at 996MB.I think it's really testing my patience now.  I tried looking up the communities for a similar issue and see that others have had their download stop at 996MB, but it seems to be an ISP/Router related issue, and I don't have alternatives for either.
    Have written to the local Apple retailer for support, fingers crossed.

  • Hello! I've downloaded the latest version of iTunes, but since then my iPhone wouldn't sync! Can anybody help me out, please? I have a Windows8

    HI! As I've written on the title, since I've downloaded the iTunes latest version, I'm not able to sync my iPhone5 anymore... it just doesn't sync. I've already checked the usb cable, and uninstalled the software and downloaded again... and it's just the same. I have a Window 8 and I'm not receiving a running error problem... so... Can anybody over there, help me, please? I will really appreciate it. Thank you.

    Yes reinstalled itunes a couple of days ago but got it sorted now thanks, the problem was that when i wiped my computer last week and reinstalled everything using the discs the free McAfee anti virus that the computer came with was still in my all programmes list although i aren't using it. This morning i tried unistalling that (didn't think it would make any difference as the programme wasn't active) once uninstalled i pluged the ipod in and hey presto it is now recognised by itunes, THANK GOODNESS. So panick over for now, thank you very much.

  • I recently purchased an older model computer with Microsoft Me from 2000. It doesn't have a web browser and I would like to download Firefox. Where do I find the download compatible with Windows Me and how do I download it?

    I have looked in your web site product downloads and I am unable to find a web browser download that is compatible with Windows Me from 2000. What am I missing? Is there a web browser download that is even compatible? It is just a second computer for my grandsons to use and do homework on, but I am unable to get up the internet.

    Firefox 2.0.0.20 is the last ever version of Firefox for Win98 / SE / ME.
    Get it from here:

  • Adobe download (error)not recognized w/ my MAC since FF3.6.12 installed

    My Mac is 10.6.4 and I updated FireFox 3.6.12 in Oct. Since then, if I'm in a website (e.g.APS) to download my statement I used to get it downloaded into a PDF. Now I get a download error message saying it cannot open the .acx file extension. I get this same error message whether I'm in any website I need to download something. I can download fine if I'm using my Safari. I have uninstalled Reader 9.4 along with Flash Player and re-installed both w/o any luck in being able to download files in any website. The Unable to download or save files HELP didn't have anything that worked to correct the problem. Is this a bug w/ FireFox 3.6.12 with Macs? I did not have this download error problem before updating to 3.6.12.

    Has anything else changed?
    Does the problem persist across a system restart?
    You might try a restart in safe mode, then an ordinary restart - sometimes that cures weird failures.

    Tom:
    I performed the steps indicated but this morning when I clicked the mouse and hit the space key and clicked the track pad again as before nothing happens.
    I hold the power button for a few seconds and the screen fills as if the computer was normally awakened but it is locked up.
    Then I have to shut it down with the power button  and then power it up as a reboot.
    Not good...SMC reset didn't work....Throughout the day yesterday I put the computer to sleep and woke it up normally.  It seems to be a overnight problem.
    Am I going to have to shut it down everynight?
