Weird zoom behavior, please help

for no apparent reason my desk top zoom in like 500% the courser now moves the background screen computer work if I can get the courses to the desired place. Rebooting leads to normal appearance of the desktop for about 5 seconds and then the desk top zooms in again, tried all I know to get rid of the zoom and reset with no success, any ideas? thanks

Go to System Preferences +Universal Access+ pane Seeing tab. Turn OFF the Zoom feature.
If the current zoom makes doing so difficult, you can also toggle it ON and OFF by hitting Command-Option-8.

  • My Final Cut runs slow and does weird stuff!, please help!

    Hi there,
    I have a Mac Pro 2x2.8ghz with 2gb RAM and Os 10.6.2, Final Cut 7, QT 7.6.3 several FW discs and one 500gb SATA I am using for my FCP project.
    Ok here is the problem: every time I start FCP it takes a very long time with the color wheel spinning, maybe 5 minutes or so, then when it finally runs most of the times some keyboard shortcuts are not working: like the space bar (play), which is specialy annoying, or the "a" command. Then if I run a little demanding sequence, like right now for example (several HDV 1080i files, stills, transitions and Live Type movies) it just doesn't run, keeps dropping and skipping all around. It even takes over a minute if I just click the mouse to move to a different location in the sequence.
    I know I don't have the biggest available hardware piece of equipment, and I could use a little more ram either, but I am not trying to post produce "Harry Poter 10" here, is just a little video for a client!
    Any thoughts?, please help!, I tried everything I can think of... (erase prefs, reinstall FCP, reinstall OSX, etc)
    Thanks very much for your time!

    Yes, It used to work ok, I think Snow Leopard has something to do, but not sure, anyway it shouldn't, right?

  • Weird...please help!

    I dont know if this belongs here or the ipod forum but I believe it belongs here because of itunes. Okay, everytime I plug in my ipod to update it, i get this message saying "Itunes has encountered a problem and needs to close." and when I went to see what was wrong it was something to do with Quicktime I guess but they dont have solution for it so im stuck. Please help me because I cant update any of my songs to my ipod~ Thanks!

    Im sorry, let me try to be clearer:
    Okay, I went to go download the Quicktime Standalone file and it uninstalled my Quicktime. So I clicked the file again and it installed it. Im still having the error message when i try to update my ipod on itunes. I heard that Norton Personal Firewall has something to do with it but I have 2004 not the 2005 one so Im like really stuck and dont know what do to. I hope this cleared up my question, I was in a rush in my last post.

  • Disk won't burn, weird message. Please Help!

    right...because the xml is basically a delimited text file. This kind of file would probably rarely ever get corrupted.
    ROFLMAO! Who told you that?
    It'a a FILE, for heavens' sake. And to any computer, all files are essentially the same thing - a string of bytes. What makes a file vulnerable or less vulnerable is how it's handled by whatever program is using it, or to a lesser extent the storage mechanism. And when it comes to .xml files and Adobe, they don't have a particularly good track record with some of them - notably the ones they use for system settings and presets.
    But I have to say that since Adobe thoughtfully gave us the option to save session data as .xml files, I haven't bothered to save them as anything else - simply because as Suite Spot says, you stand some sort of microscopic chance of being able to rescue the data when all else fails. I am fortunate - most of the stuff I do in MV doesn't use a load of tracks and absolutely no effects (live acoustic music editing), but even though the files aren't that complex, I still back them up regularly during processing because, as they regularly get rewritten and updated, they most certainly are vulnerable.

  • Weird ibook display please help!

    I have an ibook g3 dual usb. I was having crashes and couldn't empty the trash etc. etc so I decided to to do clean reinstall. I ran the disc through several disk utilities saying the disk needed to be repaired. I repaired it, then erased it. Put a new os, 10.2 and the weirdest thing happened, the os opened in a tiny screen within the screen. So went to system preferences and looked under displays, and only a 1024 x whatever, option is available! No other screen resolutions! So I updated it to 10.2.8 and it loaded ok (still small screen with screen with black backdrop) and now it won't restart. Keep getting the "you need to restart your computer..." in all languages. Please help.
    Thanks,
    Frenchy550

    Hi, and welcome to Apple Discussions.
    It sounds like you've installed a version of the OS that is too old or incompatible with the iBook. Check out this Apple Knowledge Base article:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=25497
    Do you have the system CD's that originally came with the iBook?
    What is the MHz rating and what kind of optical drive does it have (CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, or Combo)?
    How much RAM is installed?
    The "you need to restart your computer..." message is indicative of a _kernel panic_.

  • Weird Screen Issue, Please help

    Ok I have had my iBook G4 since Dec. 28, 2005 and until today everything was going just fine....
    Well this morning I went to wake it up to check my email and wham, the screen was all dark, I could see a faint image of my desktop, but barely visible. So I tried to wake it up, moved the mouse, tried the trackpad, spacebar and nothing worked, so I restarted. Then about an hour ago it did it again, and I had been using it about 15 mins before that. Only restarting remedied the problem, although the screen was dark until the apple apeard with the light blue screen behind it.
    Does anyone know what could be causing this or how to fix it, I've heard my friend say she has this prob with her Powerbook, would it be the same issue??
    Please help!!!

    Hi Anch66,
    Welcome to Apple Discussions
    Do you have an d to be able to hook your iBook G4 up to a external monitor? You may want to try starting up in Safe Mode (<a href="<a href="http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107393">Knowledge Base Document #107393 on How to Startup In Safe Mode). It is a stretch, but it may work. Do you have anything connected to your iBook? Do you have it plugged in? Have you recently installed or updated any software on your computer? You may want to bring it to your local Apple Store/Reseller.

  • Very strange iTunes behavior, please help!

    Every once in a while, I will notice a song in my library that has a time listed that I know is shorter than the song's actual length (for example, a song I know to be 5 minutes+ will be listed in the library as 1:37). When I play the song, the time adjusts to the proper time, so that is not the problem. However, if I sync my iPod, iTunes will only sync the time listed (1:37 in the example) to the iPod! It seems to be 100% random in the songs it effects and time it changes it to. Please help me out!
    Edit: I also forgot to mention, it will make songs longer also, but that is not as much of a problem because it will go on the iPod, show the "longer" time and then just go to the next track once the actual music is over

  • Premiere CS4 weird behaviour. Please help!!

    Hello all,
    I recently purchased cs4 production premium as an upgrade to my cs3 suite. After installing everything seems normal, but when i try to open videos in premiere en encore it doesnt work properly: the video gets some kind of a weird blue/red glow and it doesnt show continuously. Also the graphics in photoshop are not displayed right. I first thought it was some issue with other software on my laptop! so I reinstalled vista and after that installed cs4 but no luck. So now im guessing it s a hardware problem. Im currently using the suite on a acer laptop with the minimum requirements (otherwise it wouldnt have installed right?) specs are intel core 2 duo 1,8 Ghz, 1024 MB ATI Mobility Radeon 2300 2 GB DDR etc.
    To watch the odd behaviour I have uploaded a video to Youtube:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kQDw2b6IQM
    Should I install it on another computer of do I need better drivers (I have the latest for my videocard) or do I have to change some settings? Please help

    Groetjes!
    I can't view Youtube from where I am now, but your second description sounds like a graphics card problem.
    I don't know about Vista x86, but I'm having a terrible time with my ATI Radeon HD 2600 under Vista x64. :(
    Cheers

  • Garageband '11 v6.0.5 very weird glitch! Please help!

    When I command-click to draw blank recording space, if it's too close to the beginning of the timeline it shifts every other pre-recorded layer over one measure but keeps the audio only in the same place. So the result is the playback sound does not match the MIDI notes or real instrument recordings. Any new recorded material on new or old layers is automatically shifted down as well, but the playback audio remains in the same spot as it was recorded. To further complicate things, if I move any recorded material around or bring it back to the beginning of the timeline, the playback audio is at a fixed distance away from the recorded material, so the audio moves with it, just not synced to the visible notes or audio waves. I can repeat the problem originator (by command-clicking new recording space too close to the beginning of the timeline) over and over and it shifts every layer over more and more - displacing the audio from the visual bars more and more.
    This isn't a one-time occurance either, I had this happen before but I was able to revert to a saved version. My problem is that I saved the project before trying to quit and relaunch Garageband, and now its permanently displaced. I'm hoping there is a fix so I don't have to re-record my whole project. Again, I've tried quiting and relaunching. And I've tried restarting my computer. Any other ideas? Has it happened to anyone else?

    welcome to the forum
    you have a 5mb connection but your noise margin is a bit high at 11.1 as normal about 6.  the real problem is your profile is down at 500 instead of 4500 and this is probably due to the resets/disconnection which eithe you have done trying to improve your speed or the hub has done on it's own.
    if you stay connected 24/5 for 3/5 with no resets/disconnections your profile will rise to 4500.  you may find later that your noise margin drops to nearer 6 with a slight increase in your connection speed
