I use iMac OS 10.6.8 (uptodate Snow Leopard) with Firefox for Mac 23.0.1. Online and at other times, my number pad doesn't work. Is there a 'Num Loc/unloc' on the keyboard?

On line or otherwise, my number keypad doesn't work, then I get a 'freeze.' Number keypad works durning sign in.
I use Mac keyboard (original equipment).

Hi, sometimes Shift+clear works as numlock.
Also open System Preferences>Universal Access>Keyboard tab, & see if Sticly keys is on.
One way to test is to Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, Test for problem in Safe Mode...
PS. Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive
Reboot, test again.
If it only does it in Regular Boot, then it could be some hardware problem like Video card, (Quartz is turned off in Safe Mode), or Airport, or some USB or Firewire device, or 3rd party add-on, Check System Preferences>Accounts (Users & Groups in later OSX versions)>Login Items window to see if it or something relevant is listed.
Check the System Preferences>Other Row, for 3rd party Pref Panes.
Also look in these if they exist, some are invisible...

  • I just installed the new firefox for Mac OSX 10.6.8 and when I select an image on a site (right click and copy) and paste in Photoshop 5.5, the image lightens. It does not do this in Safari.

    Firefox, Safari, and PhotoShop each handle embedded color profiles differently. For an add-on that makes it easier to experiment with Firefox's color management options, you might be interested in: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/color-management/ Color Management :: Add-ons for Firefox]. I haven't tried it myself.

  • I have a 2008 iMac 21.5" 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with 4.1.3 VMWare and windows 7.Mountain Lion initially refused to down load as I had back up on the HD. this was removed and installation was accepted but froze in the initial stages with 33 mins to go.

    I have a 2008 iMac 21.5" using 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with VM Ware 4.1.3 supporting Windows 7. Initially ML OSX refused to install due to Back up on HD which I removed to trash.It then proceeded but froze up in the initial stages with 33 mins remaining. I was lucky enough to quit and restart using 10.6.8. With all the problems on this chat line, it appears it may be best to leave Mountain Lion well alone, and cut losses rather than tempt fate.Has anybody anything positive to say or help with?

  • Apple Keyboard with number pad doesn't work with Mac Pro?

    I have a Mac Pro, and have used an Apple Keyboard with a number pad (not bluetooth) with it for quite a while, with no problems. But then my keyboard broke and I ordered a replacement Apple Keyboard with a number pad (not bluetooth). This keyboard doesn't work with my Mac Pro. I have it plugged in, but I can't get the Mac Pro to consistently recognize that there is a USB keyboard connected to it. What magical stuff do I have to do to get the keyboard to be fit for purpose?

    It would not hurt to try an SMC Reset. (But if it does not help, it adds credence to lllaass assertion that the keyboard is not working.)

  • I mac is snow leopard I bought for 19.99 mountain lion online an my computer has gray screen with the spinning wheel and don't work help me z

    My computer I Mac is 10.6.5 I think but the issue was when I update it ask me for version 10.8.5 that was mountain lion wich I bought it for 19.99 Iand know is not working it had a gray screen with spinning wheel  I have snow  leopard on my iMac I bought mountin lion know the screen I grey I can't do nothing I reboots don't work I inserted the cd for my I Mac don't work can't do nothing I can't remove the cd can someone help me .

    To get the CD to eject, hold down the mouse, or if you use it, trackpad, button while you reboot ... keep holding the button down until it ejects. If that doesn't work, this Apple note has some other steps.
    See this Apple note on steps to take to deal with the grey screen.
    Your iMac needs to be mid-2007 or newer with 2GB minimum memory (4GB+ is recommended) and 8GB or more of available disk space. You also should be at OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard to access the App store and install OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

  • I Purchased Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium for Mac about 4 years ago and now every time i launch one of the applications it says "Trial expired"

    I purchased Adobe Creative Suite 5 and Premiere Pro CS5 in late 2010 and I use the applications on a daily basis, until now. About a month ago I decided to create an adobe account and log in since it asks me every time, after i logged in the applications worked for about a day or two but on the third day i was getting an error that said trial expired on every CS5 application i opened except for Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Adobe Bridge CS5 and  Adobe Onlocation CS5, I no-longer have the original boxes with the serial numbers due to the fact that I moved about a year ago and the boxes with the serial numbers must have been accidentally thrown away (trust me i have spent hours looking for them, i opened every box i have). What can i do to get my products working again? To repurchase all of the products it will cost thousands of dollars that i don't have.
    Thanks for reading!

  • TS2039 After saving an Excel document on my Mac ( I do have Office Mac), it will not reopen and gives error code -43. It will also say that there is no such file, although the file is in the document box. Has happened twice now with big files.

    I work on Excel files through my Office Mac program. On two occasions, a large Excel file, (about 1.5 MB) will not save and is not recoverable. It gives me an error code -43.
    I work on many such files without problem, but this has now happened on two occasions with important files.

    If it only happens with very large spread sheets, and only happens randomly, then one possibility is a buffer overflow, i.e., some piece of data is so large as to clobber the data that follows it.  If that is the case then the problem would only manifest itself if (a) you happen to access that data, (b) write beyond its allocation, and (c) what's just beyond that gets clobbered is something involved with the file's pathname.  Then when the pathname is needed it can't be found resulting in the -43.
    In other words, more "quality" programming from Microsoft...not.
    Just a theory.

  • I cannot find the export option when I go to organize bookmarks. I am running snow leopard with firefox 5.0

    I looked through previous concerns with exporting bookmarks. All say to go to Bookmarks->organize bookmarks->export. I never get anyoptions to export after I go to organize bookmarks..

    See:
    [[Bookmarks]] (lots of links and info about Bookmarks)
    In the [[Bookmarks]] article Table of Contents, clicking "Importing and exporting bookmarks", takes you to:
    https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Bookmarks#Importing_and_exporting_bookmarks
    Then click "Exporting bookmarks to an HTML file" takes you to another article:

  • I tried to install maverick and now my keyboard keys F10,F11, 7,8,9 on the number pad don't work on my iMac. How do I resolve this?

    I tried to install maverick and now my keyboard keys F10,F11, 7,8,9 on the number pad don't work on my iMac. How do I resolve this?

    It sounds like you may have multiple problems, but none of them are likely to be caused by malware.
    First, the internet-related issues may be related to adware or a network compromise. I tend to lean more towards the latter, based on your description of the problem. See:
    http://www.adwaremedic.com/kb/baddns.php
    http://www.adwaremedic.com/kb/hackedrouter.php
    If investigation shows that this is not a network-specific issue, then it's probably adware. See my Adware Removal Guide for help finding and removing it. Note that you mention AdBlock as if it should have prevented this, but it's important to understand that ad blockers do not protect you against adware in any way. Neither would any kind of anti-virus software, which often doesn't detect adware.
    As for the other issues, it sounds like you've got some serious corruption. I would be inclined to say it sounds like a failing drive, except it sounds like you just got it replaced. How did you get all your files back after the new drive was installed?

    If they are the grey discs which came with the iMac, then they will be machine specific and will not work on the MBP anyway. You will need to purchase a retail copy of Snow Leopard from the Apple Store for about $29 and upgrade from that. I presume your MBP is Intel and not G4.

  • I have a macbook and when I power it on and then select myself as a user...It won't power up. It stays in the white screen with the apple logo. I am online currently under 'guest user'. Is there anything I can do from the keyboard to fix this??? Help!!!

    I have a macbook and when I power it on and then select myself as a user...It won't power up. It stays in the white screen with the apple logo. I am online currently under 'guest user'. Is there anything I can do from the keyboard to fix this??? Help!!!

    Could you specify the model of MacBook and the OS X it's running, please? Some of the advice or references vary along with the system, so this could be helpful to formulate a reply. I've never used a Guest User selection, but do have more than one User.
    If the computer does not have an optical drive, you may be able to boot it into a recovery disk mode or something; in an attempt to see what is wrong and maybe fix it.
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • I upgraded my 3 yr old iMac to Snow Leopard and now my HP C4150 Scanning function doesn't work (not recognized).  I downloaded updated Drivers from the HP site, but still no joy.  Any suggestions?

    I upgraded my 3 yr old iMac to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) and now my HP C4150 Scanning function doesn't work (not recognized).  I downloaded updated Drivers from the HP site and installed them, but still no joy.  Any suggestions?

    aspaceman,
    Perhaps I owe you an apology.   Having re-read that downloading from HP was unsuccessful I feel uncomfortable.  Can I suggest you update your 10.6 system (as noted in your profile) to 10.6.8 (if it is not already there) by using the
    Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 combo update plus any software updates that then apply.  

  • Just done a fresh install of Snow Leopard with all updates,iMac 5.1 behaves strange, sometimes I start Google Chrome and look at youtube videos the computer freezes and shuts down immediately, I believe its  related to overheating ?

    Just done a replacement of the pata DVD drive (its new and is working ok),  and a fresh clean  install of Snow Leopard with all updates, iMac 5.1 behaves strange, sometimes I start Google Chrome and look at youtube videos the computer freezes and shuts down immediately,
    I believe its  related to overheating ?
    iStat Pro shows GPU diode temp at 66 C, CPU at 48 C,  Fan rpms is around 1000
    Any ideas somebody ?
    The hard disk has been previously checked with state of the art techniques that have confirmed that the hard disk drive is in perfect condition.

    1.5-3 minute boot up as opposed to 15-20 seconds
    And
    why it takes a long time to load a lot of things.
    I have restored this
    from a time machine partition.
    TimeMachine is only a backup and restore, it won't fix issues in software and according to your information, doesn't even optimize the restore for best performance on boot hard drives.
    What you need to do to regain your speed is to understand how your machine works
    Why is my computer slow?
    Fix any and all issues in software following this list of fixes
    ..Step by Step to fix your Mac
    Then follow this defrag method I've outlined
    How to safely defrag a Mac's hard drive
    Most commonly used backup methods
    There shouldn't be need to reinstall OS X fresh unless your having file structure issues which if they are should appear when in the Steps, which then a zero erase and install will cure as well as any bad sector issues, the defrag step wouldn't be necessarry on a freshly installed system obviously as the files are written all together, not in portions all over the drive.
    Hope this assists.

  • 22" iMac desktop OSX 10.6.6 Snow Leopard and it won't boot. I've tried shift start, option command+P+R. It's stuck at the restart, all I see is the spinning wheel below the apple logo.

    I have a 22" iMac desktop running OSX 10.6  Snow Leopard and it won't boot. I've tried shift start, option command P R. It's stuck at the restart, all I see is the spinning wheel below the apple logo. And I lost my OSX DVD is there any way to fix this? I just did a software update yesterday and have about 20GB left on my Hard drive. The last thing I did was try to install some plugin's for Pro Tools 8, but it wouldnt let me install so I restarted and now I'm screwed. Please Help!
    other specs for my computer: 3.06GHz Intel core 2 duo processor 500 GB Serial ATA hard drive, iSight, magic mouse, wireless mac keyboard
    iPod classic 160GB (Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    You have to consider the possibility the hard drive may be dying.    If your data isn't backed up, try one of the tools below:
    https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-1689
    Once you are sure your data is backed up, we can examine other possibilities.  In the meantime call AppleCare for your original installation DVDs.  You may need them.

  • Does anyone know if there is a plan to flip the keyboard sideways when text

    Does anyone know if there is a plan to flip the keyboard sideways when texting?
    I know the keyboard can do it during entering of URLs in Safari and data in Safari but not when entering texts or emails.

    No one here knows.
    If Apple plans on adding this option with a future iPhone update, if someone here is privileged to such information ahead of time, they aren't allowed to say.
