Updated to Mavericks and I get the upper left quarter of the screen blacked out on Time Machine. This means that I can't see the files. Any suggestions for getting rid of the black square?

Ive tried disconnecting and reconnecting the Time Machine. And I've tried rebooting the iMac, but I still get the top left hand quarted of the screeen blacked out. I can scroll back through the back-ups but the back square means that I can't see the details of any file.

Please read this whole message before doing anything.
This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, or by corruption of certain system caches. 
Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • I updated to Mavericks and a bunch of my info deleted.  I tried opening a previous iDVD I made, but when I click on it, it says to look for themes.  How do I get my movie to work?  Thanks.

    I updated to Mavericks and a bunch of my info deleted.  I tried opening a previous iDVD I made, but when I click on it, it says to look for themes.  How do I get my movie to work?  Thanks.

    Did you do an erase and install of Mavericks?  If not look in the HD/Library/Application Support folder for an iDVD folder.  There should be a Themes folder in it. If it's not there look in your Home/Library/Applications Suport folder for the iDVD folder.
    NOTE: In Mavericks, 10.9,  the Home Library is invisible so go to your Home folder and use the View ➙ Show View Options menu to bring up this window:
    Select Show Library Folder.  Now you can check to see if the iDVD folder in there.
    If you find the iDVD folder launch iDVD, go to its Advanced preference pane and point iDVD to the Themes folder:
    If you can't find the Themes folder you'll need to reinstall iDVD from the source you installed it from originally, i.e. the disks that came with your Mac or an iLife 09 or 11 disk.

  • How to display a frame at the upper left corner of each screen?

    hi,
    below are 2 ways to display a frame at the upper left corner of each screen (i have 2 monitors).
    both work but the 2nd way is much slower. which, if any, of the 2 approaches is "more" correct?

    Dear ladies and gentlemen!
    I recently received on my notebook, operating system 8.1, the message "Adobe Acrobat is no longer working properly". I also found myself that I can copy from einerPDF file excerpts not without problems in another document. My Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro has released version 9.0.0. Two updates this version is not listed. Please inform me how I can fix this problem.
    Sincerely, Walter Hacksteiner
    mailto: [email protected]

    The first thing I would try is to update Acrobat 9 to the latest version 9.5.5
    The next thing would be to run Acrobat 9 in Windows 7 or Vista or XP Compatibility Mode.

    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it, which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

  • Youtube videos are imprinting in the upper left corner of my screen.

    When I have a youtube video playing in one tab, and I'm looking at another tab and bringing up a notepad text file or Spider Solitaire, the youtube video will imprint itself over the upper left corner of my screen and won't go away unless I refresh the desktop (solves it for a few seconds) or move the youtube tab away from the actively playing video.
    It doesn't happen with every video. Here's two where it affects me.

  • When youtube is not my active tab, the video plays in the upper left corner of my screen.

    When I attempt to view a video on youtube, it takes several seconds to buffer. Leaving the video to run in the background I navigate to other tabs I have open and while the video buffers, nothing happens. When the video actually starts to play in the tab in the background, the video begins to play in the upper corner of my screen. The video does not to appear to be distorted at all, it's simply shifted from its location in the background tab to the upper left corner of my screen.

    Most likely the LCD Display connector simply came loose from its logic board connector. Take iPhone back to where it was repaired, and ask them to simply press the connector back into its place. Ask them to apply a bit of foam material or several small pieces of tape on top so the pressure of the flex connector plate holds it properly in place for the future.

    I need to bulk upload images from iPhoto to Auctiva (auction software) that will then be posted to eBay; however Java was disabled on my computer some time ago due to "known issues."  I have 10.5.8 so does this mean that I can't use Java? If not, then is there a workaround to be able to use the bulk uploader from Auctiva? As it stands now, I have to upload photos individually which is super time consuming.

    You can re-enable it for special purposes, opposite of disabling it...

I wanted to go onto Time Machine and look for it but when I enter it only gives me the Finder window and I can't see how to make it show me Outlook. Does anyone know how to get into the application I want?

    This is harder than it looks.. you will need to restore the library.
    Do a search.. here is first post I found.
    Where is the outlook pst file on OSX?
    You actually need to recover the files and then see if you can reload it.. but it is likely to mess up your current file.. so you might find this is really messy.
