On macbook pro when I went to magnifying glass in top right corner it comes up spotlight I am unable to retrieve utility

Can you help struggling with macbook pro since updating to yosemite? maginifying glass in top right corner is not offering utility options only comes up spotlight and wont searc what I want. I need to erase SD card

i bought new sd card to download music. I did this tonight however although it appeared on sd card to have downloaded music it would only play podcasts over and over on my roberts music system. I then eventually after deleting podcasts on the SD card on my mac tried again. Again it would only play podcasts on sd card on music system. I then thought perhaps to delete all music on card but i am unable to do so.
Interestingly the sd card came up with NO NAME... I was unable to name this and when I checked the information on the new Sandisk 16Gb SD card bought this week from sainsbury it was dated 1980!! dont know if any relevance but its been a disaster spent whole pm on this last time it was so easy but misplaced the last sd card.
Can you help? thanks

  • Macbook Pro 13" Screen went Black - Can only see when plugged into another display! HELP!

    My MacBook Pro's screen went black last night and now when it turns on it stays black. I plugged it into my tv through the mini display port and I can see everything fine on the tv but the screen on my laptop is black. Everything else seems to be working fine. Any advice that doesn't involve taking to Genius Bar??? Already tried booting in safe mode, resetting the PRAM and NVRAM. Need to fix this ASAP. Thanks!!

    Please make a Genius Appointment and take it in for service.

    Apple has a 90 warranty warranty on all of their repairs.  You should take your computer back to the repair shop.  Or call Apple Customer Relations (800) 767-2775.  Wait for a human to come on the line and ask politely and firmly that you want to be transferred over to the Customer Relations department.  Tell them your issue.

  • How can I sync my iPad 2 with my new MacBook Pro when it is already synced with my old MacBook? I am getting a message on the new MacBook Pro that says I am not allowed to sync the iPad 2 because it is synced to another iTunes library.

    How can I sync my iPad 2 with my new MacBook Pro when it is already synced with my old MacBook? I am getting a message on the new MacBook Pro that says I am not allowed to sync the iPad 2 because it is synced to another iTunes library.

    1) ensure iTunes is authorized for your iTunes store account(s)
    2) connect your device and right-click or control-click it in the iTunes Source list, then choose transfer purchases from the shortcut menu that appears.
    3) sync the device
    iTunes will wipe the iPad but, since you transferred your purchases in the previous step, your content will be in your library and you can re-populate the iPad with it.
    above works for purchases from the iTunes store. for everything else, check out this post by Zevoneer.
    also, there are PhoneView and iRip.

    On my new MacBook Pro when I am connected to the internet via an Ethernet cable, Facebook pictures do not load. They show up as white boxes with blue question marks. This also happens on a website editor. But, when I am connected to the internet via Wifi, everything load properly. This is my work computer, so I have to be able to connect through the Ethernet cable to access everything. Please help me!

    I mostly use Safari. But I also tried it on Firefox, Mozilla, and Camino. Mac OS X. It's my work computer, so I've only tried it at the office. I have to be connected through the Ethernet cable to access my files and email on the server.

  • How do i uninstall iphoto? it was preinstalled on my macbook pro when I bought it used and I can only update with the previous owners password.

    how do i uninstall iphoto? it was preinstalled on my macbook pro when I bought it used and I can only update with the previous owners password.

    Do you have the current MacOS X version 10.10.2?
    Then you can simply move iPhoto from the Applications folder to the Trash,
    sign into the App Store with your own AppleID
    reload the "Featured" main page of the AppStore with ⌘R,
    then download iPhoto with your own AppleID.
    Make a backup of your iPhoto Library, before your launch the new iPhoto the first time,
    If your current system is not Yosemite, you can only buy a boxed iLife 11 version of iPhoto to install it independent of the previous owner.

  • My macbook pro hard drive went bad and i bought a new one and installed it. Now i have the old corrupted hard drive in my hand and i am looking to recover my files from it, any suggestions please? too bad i never backed them up.

    My macbook pro hard drive went bad and i bought a new one and installed it. Now i have the old corrupted hard drive in my hand and i am looking to recover my files from it, any suggestions please? too bad i never backed them up.

    After you have installed the OSX on the new HDD in your MBP, install the old HDD in an enclosure and connect it to your MBP via USB.  Then try to drag and drop  your data to the new HDD. 
    If this proves unsuccessful, you may look for data recovery software on the Internet.  There will be free trails to see if it will work or not.  If the trial suggests that it will work, then you will have to purchase the software.
    The last resort is a professional data recovery service that will offer NO guarantees and charge a lot of money.
    As you now can appreciate, backups eliminate such predicaments.
    Ciao.

  • Hi, when powering up my macbook pro, when the apple symbol appears the screen flashes pink, can anyone advise whats up?

    Hi, when powering up my macbook pro, when the apple symbol appears the screen flashes pink, can anyone advise whats up?

    You can try a system reinstall:
    Reinstalling Lion Without Erasing the Drive
    Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the main menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Lion: Select Reinstall Lion and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You can also re-download the Lion installer by opening the App Store application. Hold down the OPTION key and click on the Purchases icon in the toolbar. You should now see an active Install button to the right of your Lion purchase entry. There are situations in which this will not work. For example, if you are already booted into the Lion you originally purchased with your Apple ID or if an instance of the Lion installer is located anywhere on your computer.

  • How do I load on Office:Mac onto my new MacBook Pro when it doesn't have a disk drive?

    How do I load on Office: Mac onto my new MacBook Pro when it doesn't have a disk drive - I don't want to have to purchase another copy.

    Glad you were able to solve your problem. For the benefit of others who may find this discussion later, allow me to suggest another possibility.
    If you have access to another Mac running Lion or Mountain Lion with an optical drive, you should be able to use the Remote Disc feature to access the optical drive on that other Mac.
