    Safe mode is not what you want in this case. Reboot to recovery mode - hold down cmd-R as the Mac reboots. Go past the language-selection screen, click the Utilities menu, then Terminal. Type:
    Followed by the return key, and follow the prompts. Reboot normally when done.

  • Restored by mistake and lost all my photos just back from Disneyland and hadn't synced them!! please someone help

    Just back from Disney land and had a message on Ipod to upgrade to IOS6 I done this without syncing my photos and now have lost all my precious photos from Disneyland, someone please help and tell me I can recover them please????

    - Did something happen during the update? If the update via wifi or iTunes was successful then the photos should be on the iPod after the update unless they were synced photos and you updated via iTunes.
    - The only way now is to get them from your PhotoStream if they were still in the steam.. See:

    My Firefox crashed with important information on it!!!
    My Firefox has been crashing every day sometimes several times a day. I have emailed your staff back many times looking for a reason for the crashed without any response. I have been able to get by because I would restore the settings and continue what I was doing. WELL….this last crash has disappeared from any way of getting it back and IT HAD SOME REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT OPENED WINDOWS I WAS WORKING ON (EMPLOYMENT INFO, I AM UNEMPLOYED!) AND NOW THEY ARE GONE AND I CANNOT GET THEM BACK!! YOU NEED TO HELP ME RESTORE THAT OPEN WINDOWS FOR ME. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT!! I NEED SOME DESPERATE HELP NOW!!

    Nick, sorry to hear about that. I'm not sure where you are sending the emails, but if you use the form to submit your crash information, that goes into a database for review by the developers instead of coming to the support volunteers here.
    Did you try the History > Restore Previous Session command? Firefox sometimes saves form data in the session history. This data may age out, so you should use that menu item as soon as possible.
    Going forward, consider installing the [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lazarus-form-recovery/ Lazarus: Form Recovery] extension if you are filling long forms and Firefox is unstable.
    With respect to the crashes, there are many possible reasons for Firefox to crash. Have you reviewed the help articles for diagnosis? For example: [[Firefox crashes - Troubleshoot, prevent and get help fixing crashes]].

    I lost my iPhone device, how can I get my data back on another one without using an iCloud backup just back up on i Tunes, Please Help.??

    You can find the backup files and then copy them to a safe place if you are worrying about this.
    iTunes places the backup files in these places:
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    The "~" represents your Home folder. If you don't see Library in your Home folder, hold Option and click the Go menu.
    Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    To quickly access the AppData folder, click Start. In the search bar, type %appdata%, then press Return.
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    To quickly access the Application Data folder, click Start, then choose Run. In the search bar, type %appdata%, then click OK.

  • I am new to mac air. Today i installed (unsuccessfully!) MAPLE16 on my mac book air. Now since it does not work properly (it also does not appear in  applications) i decide to delete it. I could not remove it from launchpad . i need urgent help

    i am new to mac air. Today i installed (unsuccessfully!) MAPLE16 on my mac book air. Now since it does not work properly (it also does not appear in  applications) i decide to delete it. I could not remove it from launchpad . i need urgent help from your side.

    Any third-party software that doesn't install by drag-and-drop into the Applications folder, and uninstall by drag-and-drop to the Trash, is a system modification.
    Whenever you remove system modifications, they must be removed completely, and the only way to do that is to use the uninstallation tool, if any, provided by the developers, or to follow their instructions. If the software has been incompletely removed, you may have to re-download or even reinstall it in order to finish the job.
    I never install system modifications myself, and I don't know how to uninstall them. You'll have to do your own research to find that information.
    Here are some general guidelines to get you started. Suppose you want to remove something called “BrickMyMac” (a hypothetical example.) First, consult the product's Help menu, if there is one, for instructions. Finding none there, look on the developer's website, say www.brickmyrmac.com. (That may not be the actual name of the site; if necessary, search the Web for the product name.) If you don’t find anything on the website or in your search, contact the developer. While you're waiting for a response, download BrickMyMac.dmg and open it. There may be an application in there such as “Uninstall BrickMyMac.” If not, open “BrickMyMac.pkg” and look for an Uninstall button.
    You generally have to reboot in order to complete an uninstallation.
    If you can’t remove software in any other way, you’ll have to erase and install OS X. Never install any third-party software unless you're sure you know how to uninstall it; otherwise you may create problems that are very hard to solve.
    You may be advised by others to try to remove complex system modifications by hunting for files by name, or by running "utilities" that purport to remove software. I don't give such advice. Those tactics often will not work and maymake the problem worse.

  • I've just came on board from Andriod and need massive help with the Contacts application any one out there willing to help the 'noob'?

    I had the folks at the store port over all of my contacts from my old
    ratty Andriod phone to my new shiny iPhone.
    however all 200+ of my contacts sort of "shook" out,
    meaning say John Smith, on my old phone,
    had in my contacts the following:
    John Smith
    123 Main St. Anytown, Anystate USA
    555-826-4879 home
    555-799-4247 cell
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    all nice and neat on my andriod but when it ported over
    all that information was just scattered all over my contacts sort of like:
    john smith, smith john
    john smith 123 main st. etc.
    johhn smith home 555 etc.
    john smith cell 555 etc.
    john smith [email protected] etc.
    so for all those 200+ contacts in my phone, I've got a zillion of them now...
    so I'd like to get this all back in order before I and Siri explode.
    I know nothing, and I know even less about outlook and the sort.
    But I do know I am in Dire need of help with this... I figured that eveything else
    involving iphones and apple in general was supposed to be cake but it seems
    like this is the only thing that isn't cake at all... unless, I'm just a right idiot. (which is possible, hence spelling and grammatical issues).

    I believe I've tried to sync it with google, but it didn't seem to take
    muchless take my calender. it seems to favor my facebook calender
    more over my google calender, but Siri seems to be helping me re-write
    it...but that's not the game here, it's the contacts. I've tried to export
    the cvp (??) list and import it into my iTunes account. However, It only
    doubled my issue because it didn't over write my existing contacts.

  • Just coming from Win and need Help with bootcamp/parallels+general osx stuf

    Well I absolutely love my Mac. I'm just having some problems affording it financially, but when I compare this new MacBook Pro to other like computers, there's a very very small difference in the hardware, and Im usually building laptops that are similiar to this for around 2k anyways. So I'm not 100% sure if I'll keep this or not, and maybe settle for cheaper PC that's under 1.5k (because Apple charges you a 10% open box fee) and buy a mac when I'm in a better position, or just keep this and see what I can do.
    But a few of the things that are making me miss a PC might push me toward a cheaper PC. And so maybe someone here can help me out before I make a decision.
    First off, is there anything that's the equivalent to a disk defragmentor for OSX?
    Second, is the graphics card really powerful in this Macbook 15 inch 2.4 ghz (the newest one)
    Im also having a problem with this keyboard and my favorite game. Basically I need to hold down certain keys (control, alt, shift and space) in order to use skills. But for some reason when I hold down any of these buttons, it only reads it once. So I have to push it every time I'd say, want to heal myself or hit a monster... and that might not seem like a lot but if you play a game for 1 hour + (I'd usually play around 4 hours) it's going to absolutely kill my fingers and make playing the game take a lot longer.
    Now I'm using parallels (the only way to play my game) and whenever I try to install a new KB, because I've found out that the way a KB is wired will determine whether or not you can spam a key or not (Like a cheap USB one wont work, but a more expensive logitech one allows you to) but it either
    1) Crashes Parallels and my Win VM
    2) It sets up whatever kb I use to be used with Mac OSX's drivers which means no matter what the KB is, ctrl alt space and shift cant be spammed.
    I'm also unable to use FRAPS, a PC video capturing program used for games while running parallels. My FPS constantly dips to 0 which lags me in the game, and I can't find a good recording program thats OSX side and that works while Parallels is running (I emailed parallels about what vid they used in their demo but no response)
    Now if use bootcamp, will I have nothing to worry about? Will all of the hardware act like it should act natively on a PC? As in will my nVidia graphics card act like it normally would on a PC instead of it being some kind of virtualized hardware or something like on parallels?
    Thanks for the help guys... 2 weeks to decide on whether or not I keep th is laptop....

    The graphics card is a higher performance GPU than the X1600 in the previous MBP models. As for "really powerful" you don't provide any basis for comparison. Visit the ATI site to find out the specifications for the model.
    Well I understand that much. I just mean as far as a graphics card in general goes, is it strong enough to support a variety of games (both PC and Mac)? This is my first computer without a crappy intergrated graphics card which could barely handle games from the late 1990s.
    As for keyboard shortcuts I'm not sure if you're referring a Mac or a PC game. However, this reference may help. If the game is a Mac version you'll need to contact the game's developer about any problems with how to use the game on a Mac. If you read the Parallels documentation it will explain how to generate any special keyboard characters when in Windows.
    Umm it's not that. Like I first figured out this problem with all electronics in general when I was a kid playing with one of those press and speak books. What I found out was that, let's pretend there were 3 buttons. One was cow going moo, one was a cat meowing and one was a dog barking. If you held down the Cow button and pressed the Cat button, the cow would still Moo. If you held down the Cow and press the dog button, the cow would still moo. However if you pressed and held the cat button, then pressed the cow button the cat would stop meowing, and the moo would override it.
    That same principle applies to keyboards from what I've seen. I know there are some keyboards where I can use the control button and the alt button at the same time, and some keyboard I can't use. I can't blame the game, because there ARE keyboards that work the way I want it to. And I'm not talking about keyboard shortcuts. Pressing Control+Alt isn't a shortcut in a game, just two different commands. Like one is jump, one is attack. In the game you can Jump and Attack with some keyboards, some keyboards only let you jump or attack.
    Another example is if I put my jump key on the letter "a" and if I hold a, I jump over and over until I let go. but if I put jump to my space bar, I jump once then stop. For some reason it won't repeat keys while in a game. Same goes for other buttons, ctrl, shift, and alt.
    Does that make things a little more clear?
    but what I'm going to do is try my mac keyboard on a PC and see if it has the same limitations.
    If Parallels is crashing either you have a faulty installation, your OS X installation is corrupted, or you have not allocated sufficient RAM for the VM. You need at least 2 GBs of installed RAM to use virtualization software and should allocate at least 384 MBs or RAM to Windows XP and 512 MBs to Vista. If you have only 1 GB of RAM installed your system won't be very stable when you try to run Parallels with Windows on 384 or 512 MBs of RAM.
    I have the newest 15 inch which has gigs. And I've tried setting Parallels to both 1 and 512 (windows xp) and I worded the problem wrong. Parallels doesnt crash, parallels runs fine. What happens is Windows XP gets the blue screen of death whenever I try to install a usb device. Since I can't find a logitech keyboard that has drivers/software for a mac, I tried using a Windows one and tried installing it on my XP... and thats when I got the BSOD
    Parallels uses all the native Mac hardware via the virtualization software. No special Mac drivers are required nor special Windows drivers.
    If you cannot run a Windows program in Parallels it's not a problem with OS X. Complain to Parallels.
    It's not that a program isn't running. It's running fine, it's just my FPS gets really low. What I'm trying to figure out is if my graphics card isn't good enough in general, or if it's not good enough to handle parallels and osx and a game with a video capture all at once.
    Boot Camp runs Windows natively on the hardware just as if you were using any other dedicated Windows hardware. "Will I have nothing to worry about?" I don't know. Boot Camp provides the necessary Windows drivers for all currently produced Intel Macs. You can install Windows XP with Service Pak 2 or Vista. Read the Boot Camp documentation to find out more.
    Well I meant will I have nothing to worry about as in, will my graphics card be as effective on my bootcamped win XP as it would be if it was a native XP laptop, or will it be slightly less effective since it was based for a mac intel computer... does that make sense or do I need to reword it?

  • MacBook just back from repair, whining now?

    Hello Everyone,
    My Macbook suffered from that awful discoloration issue, and I sent it in a month ago to get the case replaced. While it was there, the Apple people said that they needed to replace the logic board too...
    So it took them a whole month to get it back to me. And now, finally - I just plugged it back in! But, now, to my dismay, there is an awful squealing whenever the power supply is plugged in. What the **** is this all about? Is there a solution? Should I send it back!?
    - Alex
    Macbook   Mac OS X (10.4.9)   1.83Ghz Core Duo, 2GB ram

    If you send it back you'll probably get another whiner. It's annoying, but typical for MacBooks (MBPs too). The whining is caused by the CPU saving power (if I'm correct) when it's hardly being used.
    Try to not let it get to you and in a while you won't even hear it anymore. I'm speaking from personal experience. I'll sometimes hear it when I'm in a really quiet room studying or during lectures/seminars at college. I let it go.
    Just enjoy your fixed MB !

  • Just back from:iMac G5 Repair Extension Program. No start/black screen.

    O.K. Now what's wrong? I just got the IMac G5 back today. Plugged it in with the key board and mouse attached only. It will not start up completely. The light comes on, the screen is black, then the fans speed up. Pram reset, safe mode do not work. Tried several times.
    Any help appreciated,
    Imac G5 1.8   Mac OS X (10.3.9)  

    That is so surprising! And wow, my heart goes out to you. That really *****! BUT, there may be a very good reason or at least one that Apple didnt catch intially. Yea, I would most certainly call AppleCare now, if you havent already.
    Let us know what happened if you think of it. I'd be interested to see what happened. Maybe this might be time to ask for a replacement. I know for me and my first generation iMac G5 it was a long, long frustrating relationship. I swear I dont think any of the early ones are safe. It just seems like such a troubled, flawed model. I am glad now that they fixed the issues. My 2.1 iSight iMac G5 has worked flawlessly for the 5 months I have had it. ( Knock wood.)
