Mac Mini drive wiped. Won't accept utility disc and won't display on multiple monitors that have been tried. Power light remains on.

Thanks again for your help. It took me awhile to find a USB KB and Mouse. However they are both older Windows ones. I'd been trying earlier with a blutooth mouse and KB with no luck. I tried your suggestions with no luck so far. There still remains no change. The power light flashed at one point when I tried booting with the alt key and then turned off, but nothing else happened that was visible.
Thank you so much for your help so far. Any additional suggestions are greatly appreciated.

  • Ipad mini became hot when charging and now will not come on. All usual resets have been tried

    Mini ipad became hot while charging and will not come on.  Normal resets have been tried.

    I am assuming that you let the device cool down completely before you tried powering up. I don't know what more you might want to try...recharge, restore...the usual troubleshooting steps. Once again, assuming that the device has completely cooled down, I would let the device charge all night, try resetting one more time and if that fails, try restoring the iOS.
    If that fails, make an appointment at an Apple Store and let an Apple Genius evaluate the damage.
    Use iTunes to restore your iOS device to factory settings

    well PhillyPhan, I can't tell that you're better looking just by your iphoto icon, now can I? Although it is a lovely sunset you've got there.
    Thanks for your response to my question, I see your point and will do that, however, I have another folder that was created before I had a Mac, which has all sorts of lovely titles and labels and some of those pictures I brought over to my ibook when I first started. So there are some duplicates in my iphoto library that I already have backed up in that other folder. I guess I shouldn't really obsess about those. I guess I am just nervous about deleting all my prior iphoto library, but I should have faith that it will all be there in my pictures library. Just trying to clean up the virtual mess.
    I'll hold my breath and take the plunge.
    Thanks!

    How did you copy files to the external drive, and what files did you copy? Did you drag and drop in the Finder? Use a clone utility? What files did not successfully copy?
    If you reformatted the drive as part of your install, then you won't be able to recover any files from the drive. Reverting back to (reinstalling) 10.4 will not help you.
    Do you have a complete-drive backup of your old system?

  • I just restarted my mac then suddenly when it boots,disk utility came and says different option like repair disk, get help, reinstall OSX and I tried to click disk repair but it says that I am um able to repair the disk

    It sounds like your hard drive either has a software problem that Disk Utility cannot fix or that the HD has failed (mechanically).
    Your Mac may have booted either to your recovery partition or to internet recovery in an attempt to repair the drive- I can't tell from your post.
    I'll assume that it was the recovery partition.
    Try to boot into internet recovery (hold down option command R at restart), and see if you can repair your HD with Disk Utility. You should also repair permissions while you're there.
    If that doesn't work, try to boot into single user mode (restart, hold down ⌘S until you see a black screen with white text) and repair your hard drive. Here's a reference with directions: Repair Your Hard Disk in Single User Mode | Everything Macintosh
    If that doesn't work you have a few options:
    If your mac originally came with installation disks, you can try to boot from the installation disk and then see if you can repair the HD.
    There is a small chance that Techtool Pro 7  will be able to repair your HD if Disk Utility can't.
    If none of that works then your HD has probably failed and will need to be replaced, which is not too difficult to do yourself if you can use a screwdriver.

  • I can't log in to my computer. It won't accept any names and passwords from any accounts.

    This is my work computer, and it started 3 days ago. It won't accept the name and password of any account in the office, except for the localadmin log in. That works just fine. I have tried all the basic troubleshooting like restarting, unplugging the computer, unplugging the network cable. Doesn't help. The login screen shakes like I typed in the wrong password.
    It is connect to a network with other macs and PCs. We use Windows Small Business Server 2003, I don't know if that has anything to do with the issue.
    Today the problem also started affecting a Mac Book Pro, which is also connected to the network.
    Is there an update we are missing? What's going on?

    Are you authenticating to an Active Directory server? If so, that's where the problem is.

  • Selling my Mac Mini but will iLife be there after wipe and re-install

    Hi there
    I am wanting to sell my 2011 Mac Mini which originally came with Lion installed. In the time I've had it I've upgraded it through ML and it's now running Mavericks. Obviously I'm going to erase the hard drive and then re-install OSX before selling and I'm comfortable with how to do this but I'm now wondering about the iLife software that came with my Mac.
    My questions are;
    a) the recovery partition, will this still have a copy of Lion there or will that have been upgraded to Mavericks as well?
    b) If the recovery partition is set now for Mavericks, I have read in other threads that if I re-install any version of the OS that is different to the one that originally shipped with my Mac (Lion) then the new owners will not have access to the iLife bundle that was pre-installed and will have to purchase it from the Mac App Store. Is this true?
    c) If this is true is there anyway I can revert the Mac mini back to Lion so then the new owners will have access to the iLife software and then upgrade to Mavericks themselves?
    Obviously I would prefer the iLife suite to be available as this makes my Mac more attractive when selling. Before it was so much easier when Apple actually gave out Install discs as you could just re-install from them without any issues. Now with the Mac App Store and this new way of obtaining apps preparing a Mac for sale is a bit more complicated.
    Any advise regarding this is greatly appreciated.

    Here is the link I lef tout of my first reply
    OS X: About OS X Recovery
    I think that if you do what
    What to do before selling or giving away your Mac
    says and then setup the Mac with your ID, your ID will have to remain on the computer in order to update the OS.
    The same may apply for iWorks since you had to sign in to download iWorks

  • Following upgrade to osx 10.8.2 on my mac mini I can no longer connect to icloud, I wouldn't mind so much but I have come to rely on th eicloud services to manage my work and home services, has any1 else experienced this and has any1 any solutions?

    following upgrade to osx 10.8.2 on my mac mini I can no longer connect to icloud, I wouldn't mind so much but I have come to rely on th eicloud services to manage my work and home services, has any1 else experienced this and has any1 any solutions as this is messed up all of my work relations?

    Had the same problem this morning after updating to 10.8.2. Mail was finding my dot-mac account as always, but System Preferences popped up and said my iCloud password was incorrect. Did the "forgot password" reset, but still had the same problem. Then I went to icloud.com in Safari, logged in with the new password, it worked no problem. So I went back to the icloud preference pane, signed out of icloud, answered yes to all the warnings about data being deleted from my mac, blah blah blah, then re-signed in to icloud. Everything worked. I did have to set up my icloud account in Mail again, which now lists the account mailbox as "iCloud", and not "mac.com" as it did before. But so far, everything is working (fingers crossed.)

    Hi there,
    The simplest way is to drag it across wirelessly using the 'Airdrop' application once both computers are near one another. 'Airdrop' can be found near the top, on the left hand side menu, within 'Finder'.

  • Email send/receive suddenly doesn't work ; can't change email settings as BB phone won't accept valid username and password -- what to do?

    email send/receive suddenly doesn't work (as of September 24th); I can't change email settings (one suggestion from tech) as BB phone won't accept *valid* username and password -- what to do?
    I understand from a support note that if I keep trying my password/username combination, my BB will eventually delete all data!
    I can't understand this. I'm completely lost now. I can't remember what I've done or tried to do. A plethora of usernames and passwords is swimming in my head.
    Thanks for any hints. I have always loved this BB Bold and have never had any trouble with it.

    But the real question is why for the past year did the passwords work and then all of the sudden after this anomaly the disk password doesn't work?  I'm not 100% sure of what my configuration was, but I know that most of the time it required one password -- supervisor, and occasionally it asked for 2 -- disk password as well I believe.  This may have been related to the Password on Restart setting I think -- asking for the disk password on cold vs. warm boot.  But I know both were exactly the same.  But after this incident only the Supervisor password worked.

  • I run a Mac Mini 10.6.1 and a G5 10.4.11 - they share a screen. Yesterday the contrast on the Mac Mini went mad. Very very heavy contrast and now its impossible to retouch with Photoshop as I cannon judge the colours accuratly. The G5 is fine. John UK

    I run a Mac Mini 10.6.1 and a G5 10.4.11 - they share a screen. Yesterday the contrast on the Mac Mini went mad. Very very heavy contrast and now its impossible to retouch with Photoshop as I cannot judge the colours accuratly. The G5 is fine. I keep the screen image I get on the G5 good and accurate with Huey. I believe I cannot use this with the "Intel Inside" Mac Mini. Does anyone know how I can restore the great screen image I got up to yesterday on my Mac Mini? Thanks. John Suffolk England.

    Likely caused by one of the following: a bad cable, maybe a bad connection or (my guess) bad graphics hardware.
    To rule out the software, see if booting from an installer DVD shows better color.
    Swap the cables and check the connections.
    Then call your hardware support provider.

  • I have been trying to put music I bought on I tunes on my Samsung Note 2 phone but it won't play.I try to convert them to mp3 format so I can play them on my phone but it won't let me convert them because it says they are protected. Can anybody help me?

    I have been trying to put music I bought on Itunes on my Samsung Note 2 but my media player won't play m4p files so I tried to convert the files to mp3 but I couldn't, because a message says they are protected files. I then tried downloading different media player apps to see if they would play them but had no success.Can anybody help with a solution to this problem?

    First quit iTunes and look in your iTunes folder.
    On Windows, the iTunes folder is in your My Music folder.
    On Mac, the iTunes folder is in your Music folder.
    Follow this path:    iTunes > iTunes Media > Music >
    Here there should be all your music folders. Open the folders containing the music that is not playing. Right click "get info" (mac) or right click "properties" (windows).
    This window will tell you the file type. iTunes will play music in AAC, MP3, and Lossless, etc.
    If the files are .wma you will need to convert them into ACC or MP3 format for it to play on an iPod. In iTunes, highlight the tracks that you want to convert, then on the menu bar, Advanced > Create AAC/MP3 version and the tracks will convert. Delete the old files.
    If the file extenstion is anything like .exe .txt .rar  then you don't have an audio file.
