Many of my System Preferences will no longer work after installing Mountain Lion. Software update, startup disk, iCloud, etc. no longer will launch. I keep getting a drop down window saying I must restart system preferences in order to use. No go!

Many of my System Preferences will no longer work after installing Mountain Lion. Software Update, Startup Disk, iCloud, Time Machine, Notifications, etc. no longer will launch even though they do show their icons in the system preferences window. I keep getting a drop down window saying I must restart system preferences in order to use with a "Cancel" or "OK" choice. After I click on "OK" the window just keeps reappearing with the same choices and the pane I wish to use still remains inoperative. Third party preference panes DO work.
Reinstalling OSX Mountain Lion did not help. Neither did throwing away preferences.plist.

Hi Jeff,
Tried to reply with my iPhone but not easy! Anyway, back on the laptop now. Yes the crash was bad but Tek support at Prism Sound was really good. In the end I rebuilt the whole system on a new disk which took a couple of days with all the plugins, softsynths etc.... but there seemed to be no alternative in my case, and this was agreed with Prism sound as being the only alternative left to me. I still don't really know what caused the crash but ML and Orpheus are both working fine now. Let's face it, you'll have to update at sometime..maybe best to pick some time between projects On balance, I suspect that my problems were unique to my system and that your installation will go ok.
Hope it goes well,
Rick

  • Some USB ports no longer working after installing Mountain Lion?

    Some of my USB ports are no longer working after installing Mountain Lion onto my 21' 2011 iMac. I used to plug in my iphone 4S and charge it, or transfer files onto my iPad but none of the ports no longer work to do this. Funnily enough, other equipment plugged into the works. I have tried changing the cable. Any ideas?

    In my experience, the USB ports on the back of an Apple monitor can be re-enabled simply by unplugging and plugging back in the device in question. You might also check to see that the USB Monitor hub shows up in System Profiler. My Apple monitor USB ports experienced no changes in moving to 10.4.7.

  • USB ethernet connection via switch no longer works after installing Mountain Lion

    Since installing Mountain Lion, I have no longer been able to use my USB ethernet connection via an ethernet switch. I have deleted and re-added the connection in preferences. The connection reads "Connected" but it is not working as connected (unless I bypass the switch and plug directly). I have tried doing this with two different switches to no avail. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks.

    I Read this sollution elsewhere on these forums and found that this worked for me.
    However, the "load" time in Safari is not as fast as it used to be. Might be due to some router setting.
    Solution:
    For all the Dutch users that have a KPN Experiabox router:
    1) go to http://192.168.2.254
    2) Username: KPN Password: leave empty (You might have changed this yourself)
    3) Go to Network (at the top)
    4) Go to WLAN (at the left)
    5) Set as follows:
    Enable WLAN: Enable
    Mode: IEEE 802.11g Only
    Channel: 7
    Transmitting power: 100%
    Enable WMM QoS: Disable
    This fixed my wifi problems. Good luck

    To re-install iPhoto
    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
    2a: On 10.5:  Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
    2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows:  In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
    /var/db/receipts/
    2c: on 10.7 they're at
    /private/var/db/receipts
    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
    3. Re-install.
    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
    If you purchased it on the App Store or have a Recent Mac you can find it in your Purchases List.

  • Wireless printing no longer working after installing HP 2.7 update

    I have been using wireless printing from my Macbook Pro (running Lion OSx 10.7.2) fine until yesterday when it just stopped working out of nowhere. From looking on the forums it appears that this is probably a result of the HP 2.7 update (which I also had the issue of continuously re-appearing in my software update list even after installing it multiple times - though i was able to resolve this courtesy of this forum). I've tried re-installing the printer multiple times and it works fine when connected via USB, it acnowledges that the printer is connected to the same wireless network as my computer bu

    I do have an entry for 'iTunes.Application.1' (below). However, I'm sure there are many more registry entries related to iTunes. In other words, adding this entry will probably not be sufficient to restore the COM functionality.

  • FaceTime no longer working after 4.3.4 software update.

    I updated my ipod touch to 4.3.4 and ever since facetime no longer connects with the other person. I click call and it says the persons name and directly underneath it says "FaceTime..." as if it were calling the person, but it clearly is not. Somebody please help!

    Numbers does not open with the main user after installing mountain lion. It works flawlessly when I use the second account on my mac. What got corrupted in the admin-account, something in the user-library? How can I fix it? I´m kinda desperate... (the same happens with the other iWork-Apps!)
    Looking forward to hearing from somebody with a littlemore expertise than me, Chris

    you can remove preferences files by navigating to the Preferences folder for your user as follows:
    0) Quit ALL iWork apps (Keynote, Pages and Numbers)
    1) from the Finder select the menu item "Go > Go To Folder…".  This will bring up a dialog:
    2) enter the path "~/Library/Preferences" (no double quotes)
    3) find the files:
    com.apple.iWork.Keynote.plist
    com.apple.iWork.Numbers.plist
    com.apple.iWork.Pages.plist
    and move these to the trash.  I would NOT empty until later.
    4) restart Numbers

  • Back to my mac no longer works after upgrading to Lion

    Back to my Mac no longer works after upgrading to Lion
    After I upgraded my home machines to Lion, I can no longer access them from my work computer, which is running Snow Leopard. When they were both Snow leopard, it worked fine. How can I get them working again? I don't have control over the OS on my work computer. Is it necessary for me to downgrade all of my home computers to Snow leopard in order to get them talking again?
    Additionally the binoculars icon appears in the menu bar all of the time. In previous versions, this would only happen when somebody connected to my machine. Could these problems be related?

    OK, so further investigation has addressed the BTMM issue on a remote machine.
    With all machines running lion, I was having issues trying to log in to a standard user headless machine already running.  In Snow Leopard, I had no issues with this since you can log in via screen sharing using an admin login that's running a standard login.  Lion allows multiple accounts to be signed in which is handy since you can now run virtual sessions.  This means you can admin the remote computer without bothering the remote user.
    The problem was that now logging in using admin login brings up the admin account (which makes sense) instead of the desktop to the standard login.  I applied a similar solution to a problem that was related to screen sharing I found on this board.  What I believe to be the fix is to add the standard user to the screen sharing user list.  Then screen share to the remote account using the standard user credentials. 
    So on the remote computer, in System Settings->Sharing->Screen Sharing, add the standard user to be allowed access.  Previously I only had admins.  This may not be an ideal solution for what I'm trying to do since the remote computers primary login is the standard user to be used as a common computer, but it now works so I am happy with it.
    Now my only "problem" is my AEBS complaining about my MobileMe credentials, but it doesn't appear to have an impact on BTMM performance so I'll quietly wait for a fix down the road.

  • Bluetooth inactive after installing mountain lion - your computer restarted because of a problem

    Good day
    I read up on forums, and I think my reboot error is due to my bluetooth that is inactive, which happened after installing Mountain Lion
    My Bluetooth worked before under Snow Leopard
    I have deleted the file under library to no avail
    I have rebooted with cmd option P R to no avail
    I have repaired permissions and this is the only message that pops up, and bluetooth still does not work after reboot.

  • Can No Longer Get Camera Photos After Installing Mountain Lion

    After installing Mountain Lion, I am no longer am able to see pictures from my digital camera thru the USB port.  This camera has worked for years with my iMac, but not anymore.  Anybody else having this issue after installing the newest system?
    Dick

    Paul_31:
      I have not tried to import the photos directly into iPhoto.  However, I did remove the SD card from the camera and plug it into a USB card reader, and my iMac would NOT read the photos that way either.  I took the camera and plugged it into my Win. 7 laptop and the pictures showed up nicely, so I know the camera and the card are Ok.  My iMac has been working strangely since I installed Mountain Lion.  I'm getting lockups using iMovie too.

  • After installing Mountain Lion, my Time Machine won't back up ... says the sparsebundle is in use

    After installing Mountain Lion, my Time Machine won't back up ... says the sparsebundle is in use

    Standard problem in ML.. apple do not seem to want to recognise.
    Reboot the TC .. if that fails restart the whole network in correct order.. modem.. router/TC... clients.. with 2min gap.
    There are other suggestions like changing the password.. all they do is the same as reboot.
    Read C12.. most quoted Q in pondini website history. This is asked 10 times a day.
    http://pondini.org/TM/FAQ.html
    Here is another way to get a useful utility in ML.. rather than toyland version.
    How to load 5.6 into ML.
    1. Download 5.6 for Lion.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1482
    Click to open the dmg but do not attempt to install the pkg.. it won't work anyway.
    2. Download and install unpkg.
    http://www.timdoug.com/unpkg/
    Run unpkg on the desktop.. it is very simple.. drag the AirPortUtility56.pkg file over to unpkg.. and it will create a new directory of the same name on the desktop.. drill down.. applications utilities .. there lo and behold is Airport utility 5.6 .. drag it to your main utilities directory or just run it from current location.
    You cannot uninstall 6.1 so don't try.. and you cannot or should not run them both at the same time.. so just ignore the toyland version.. the plastic hammer.. and start using 5.6.. a real tool.

  • TS3147 After installing Mountain Lion, I tried to scan from my Canon MX870 and received the message: "MP Navigator EX quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. A report will be sent to Apple,"

    After installing Mountain Lion, I tried to scan from my Canon MX870 and received the message: "MP Navigator EX quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. A report will be sent to Apple,"  This problem happened right after I installed Mountain Lion. I then downloaded Canon's upgraded software and drivers for the MX 870 and the problem was resolved. Now one month later, the problem has returned.

    Solved problem with original Canon software.  When I downloaded Canon software upgraded for OS X 10.8, I got all by Navigator Ex. Noticed that on Canon's site, the upgraded version is 3.1; my app was 2.1. Upgraded to 3.1 for Nav. Ex, and it works.
    You should still use Image Capture IMHO.  If it was my gear, that's what I would do.  No need to worry about software upgrades.

  • After installing Mountain Lion two drives on my network cannot be accessed.  I am using Parallels to utilize QuickBooks ERP.  The programs and data are on the drives that I can no longer access.  Suggestions?

    After installing Mountain Lion on my Mac Book Pro, I can no longer access two shared drives.  Diagostics cannot solve the problem.  I am using Parallels to run Qucikbooks ERP on these shared drives.  How do I get my Mac to see these drives and access them?

    Don't know what to tell you, but I also have an AEBS-Gen5 with a MBP Retina and Mac Mini using WiFi. Both are running Mountain Lion and I don't have any WiFi connection issues. Two iPhones in the household use WiFi with no issues along with a printer and 2 Windows 7 laptops.
    First thing I would try is to shutdown all computers connected to the AEBS. Then power off the AEBS and finally the cable/DSL modem. Then reverse the order and power on the cable modem, wait for all the lights to be solid, power on the AEBS, wait for the light to show solid green; then power up a computer that uses WiFi.
    If the above doesn't work, you might try repairing permissions via Disk Utility. If that doesn't help maybe a PRAM reset would work.

  • My ImageClass MF4380dn Cannon Multifunction Copier driver no longer works after installing Mavericks. How can I resolve this?

    My Image Class MF4380dn Cannon Multifunction Copier driver no longer works after installing Mavericks. I have checked with Cannon and they do not list my partricular machine among their driver updates. Is there another place to download a driver suitable for Mavericks?

    Your MF4380dn is supported by the latest UFR2 v10.4.0 driver that supports 10.9. Here is a link from the Canon Australia web site,
    http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0100491502.html
    Before installing this driver, please remove the MF4380 from Printers & Scanners (unless you have already performed the reset that Carolyn mentions which will remove it for you). Then run the v10.4.0 installer and when it has completed, open Printers & Scanners and add the MF4380.
