All text on computer is replaced with capital A in a Box

at first it was only when I was in safari and it was only the menu. then i restarted the computer and it is always like that now.
i read about this somewhere and people have said only a reinstall os osx would fix it but i am hoping for a better answer. if i do have to reinstall can you reinstall the os without losing data such as photos or do i have to back up everything and format and reinstall? i have never reinstalled the os on a mac so i have no idea what to do. thank you.

You can certainly reinstall using Archive and Install, which will preserve your user data and settings. Read the instructions and make sure to check "preserve user preferences and settings" and you should be just fine,

  • TS1474 I have just tried to sync my iphone with my computer. All my purchased songs were replaced with what was on my computer which was nothing. How can i get them back onto my phone or computer?

    Hi, I have just tried to sync my iphone with my computer. I must have clicked the wrong thing, now all the songs i purchased through my phone from itunes were replaced with the itunes that was on my computer, which is nothing. Any ideas on how can i get them back onto my phone or computer? I can see them in the itunes store under purchases, but there are no options for me to download them again.

    Hi J8on,

  • Mac Terminal: computer name replaced with "virus"

    Hi, I'm having an issue where, in my Mac terminal, the space where the computer name is shown is instead replaced with the word "virus".
    virus:~<username>$
    Additionally, my internet connection either works terribly or not at all, and this only seems to happen at night.  I have no idea what's going on, but maybe somebody can shed some light on this?

    The most plausible explanation is that someone with access to your computer is messing with you. There's a number of ways of changing the computer's name shown at the command prompt (at least one doesn't involve touching your computer at all):
    1. If your computer is given a name by the DHCP server (your Internet gateway, or whatever you are using), an individual can modify the name that the DHCP service gives your computer and your computer will simply adopt that name when receives its IP address assignment. (Doesn't require access to your computer.)
    2. If your computer didn't get assigned a host name by DHCP, then the system will do a reverse DNS lookup on the IP address it gets. If the DNS server (or /etc/hosts) returns 'virus' as the host name for that IP address, then your system will use that name. (Doesn't require access to your computer.)
    3. If neither of the first two things happened, the system will use the name you set in the Sharing pane of System Preferences. (Someone can set this by simply walking up to your computer and setting it, or by logging in with an admin account and editing /Library/Preference/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist).
    4. Someone could also edit the default prompt used by bash. The environment variable PS1 contains the prompt template string, the default being PS1='\h:\W \u\$ ' -- the '\h' means host name. You can do
    'echo $PS1' to see if it's set this way. PS1 can be set in /etc/profile, /etc/bashrc, ~/.profile, and ~/.bashrc
    There's a couple of other possibilities if you are integrating with Active Directory or Open Directory

  • If I sync my ipod touch with itunes, it all will be lost, and replaced with the old ones!

    I plugged my ipod touch with several pc's, and if I sync with my pc, so Will all the programs replaced the old I had before. But if I do, can I download all the purchased music and all the programs my free? Since I've been downloading it before? Jardar.

    - Yes. If you sync with another coputer. the contents of the iPod will be replaced with those on the new computer.
    - You can redownload most iTues puchases b:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    - You can transfer iTunes purchases to the computer by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    - For other music you will need a third-party program like one of those discussed here:
    Copy music from Ipod to new computer...: Apple Support Communities
    - If yo want to retain app data like saved games, do the following after all the apps and other things on in the iTunes library:
    ---- Connect the iPod t the computer and make a backup by right clicking on the iPod under Devices in iTunes and select Back Up
    - Restore the iPod from that backup

  • DWCC2014.1 - When Inserting an Image, all code is wiped and replaced with HTML framework containing an iFrame

    I recently upgraded to DW CC 2014.1 on my Mac - which caused me a number of issues. But the one I'm facing right now is very strange.
    Whenever I try to insert an image - either via the shortcut, or through the top level dropdown dialogue - when the file browser comes up, all of my HTML code disappears, to be replaced with a starter template and an iframe. This happens about 90% of the time - but it sometimes works correctly, and I can't figure out why it does work that 10%.
    Usually, I can just cancel the file browser and Undo to get my code back. But occasionally that doesn't work (and neither does Revert), and I have to close the document and re-open to my last save.
    Here's what appears when my code vanishes:
    Anybody know what's happening here? I don't use any specially created shortcuts. I've run into several issues with 2014.1 that have impacted my productivity, and it's getting increasingly frustrating.

    I am experiencing the same issue.
    Environment: Mac Pro 6,1/OS X 10.9.5/DreamWeaver CC 2014.1 6947 Build
    Relevant software: DefaultFolder X 4.6.10 (16690)
    Steps:
    1) Position cursor on its own line in Code panel of Split View.
    2) Press Cmd+Option+I [OR] select Insert > Image > Image
    3) Navigate to image using file browser
    4) Click OK
    5) Repeat the above steps to insert a second image
    Result with DefaultFolder X active:
    1) The first insert completes as expected [OR] all HTML code between opening and closing body tags disappears, and a frame tag with a source attribute pointing to the file itself is inserted after the closing head tag
    2) For subsequent inserts:
    If the first insert completed as expected: If the cursor is indented from farthest-left,  all HTML code between opening and closing body tags disappears, and a frame tag with a source attribute pointing to the file selected in the first insert appears after the closing head tag. If the cursor is not indented, *most* subsequent attempts will reproduce the issue
    If the first insert produced the issue: all subsequent inserts will reproduce the issue, and the frame source will be the file itself
    Result with DefaultFolder X disabled:
    1) The first insert completes as expected [OR] all HTML code between opening and closing body tags disappears, and a frame tag with a source attribute pointing to the file itself is inserted after the closing head tag
    2) For subsequent inserts:
    If the first insert completed as expected: If the cursor is indented from farthest-left,  all HTML code between opening and closing body tags disappears, and a frame tag with a source attribute pointing to the file itself, no matter what file is selected in the file browser dialog, appears after the closing head tag. If the cursor is not indented, *most* subsequent attempts will reproduce the issue
    If the first insert produced the issue: all subsequent inserts will reproduce the issue, and the frame source will be the file itself

  • All contacts lost on backup. replaced with emails addresses from macbook

    Today i backed up my BB to my macbook. I selected full back up as usual, only when i checked the macbook, the contacts from my phone hadn't copied over. 
    So, i looked on support which said i should select contacts on my phone , choose options and then switch off wireless synchronisation and try again , with USB again.
    I did this. Now strangely all my phone numbers have vanished from my phone and have been replaced with email contacts from my macbook. All numbers- gone.
    i tried then to go to restore on macbook again, using BB software desktop thingy it will allow me to back up everything  apart from my contacts which is greyed out.
    Can someone please help. Ive got 10 years worth of phone numbers on that phone and ive lost every single one.
    Is there any way to get them back?
    Whats happened?

    Contact applecare. they have procedures for this.

  • All text on computer has gone into symbols

    Suddenly I cannot read any file names or help menus or anything on the computer, as all text has converted into some kind of symbol font

    Back up all data.
    Launch the Font Book application and validate all fonts. You must select the fonts in order to validate them. See the built-in help and the support article linked below for instructions. If Font Book finds any issues, resolve them, then boot in safe mode* (by holding down the shift key at the startup chime) to rebuild the font caches. Boot again as usual and test.
    Mac 101: Font Book
    *Note: If FileVault is enabled under OS X 10.7 or later, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode. In that case only, after running Font Book, launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Drag or copy — do not type — the following line into the Terminal window, then press return:
    sudo atsutil databases -remove
    You'll be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning not to screw up. After running the command, reboot as usual.

  • Find and replace with multiple files and with a watch folder

    I am trying to create a watch folder that uses red_menace script to:

    Edit: how does the choose from list dialog handle those big strings? I'm guessing not very well - is that why you avoided using them?

  • HT1473 How do I sync new purchased music onto my ipod without deleting/replacing with current library. I recently changed computers and new library doesnt have any of my playlists either.

    Hi All:
    I recently got a new computer, authorized new one with itunes and when I go into my library it has none of my playlists that I originally created. Also, I purchased new songs on itunes and as I did in the past, I connected my ipod Nano to automatically sync to get the new music and hopefully all my playlists would go into my itunes library and I received a message asking am I sure I want to delete all my ipod contents and replace with library contents? I canceled and dont want to loose my existing ipod collection as I have more songs on there than my itunes library plus my playlists are all on my ipod.  What I want to do is sync new songs to ipod and sync my playlists from ipod to my itunes library.
    Please help!!
    Thank you so much!
    Michelle

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    If you purchased all songs in the iTunes Store, plug your iPod to your Mac or PC and iTunes will ask you to transfer purchases.
    If you didn't purchase any song or you have non-purchased songs from the iTunes Store, you have to use an application to transfer the songs to iTunes. Here is a list of applications you can use for that > https://discussions.apple.com/message/11319208#11319208

  • HT4191 Notes getting mixed up and or replaced with other users i-phone?

    For some reason whenever I sync my i-phone 4s and my wife syncs her i-phone 4 to itunes on our laptop which is a compaq(I don't know if that might be a problem) by the way, some of her notes always gets deleted and gets replaced with my notes, and she'll have just a couple of her notes but most of mine. It's been driving us crazy for months now cuz we can't figure it out! Do we need to sync our phones on different computers? Is there a setting that I'm missing? What are we doing wrong????

    Please let me know whether you experience the following issue, and submit feedback (or if you are an Apple Developer, a bug report). This issue is not related to synchronization.
    Title/Subject:
    Contacts 7.1 replaces one contact's Notes with another contact's Notes
    Summary:
    This issue's significance is severe because data is permanently lost: After searching for contacts and editing one of the contact's Notes, all found contacts' Notes are replaced with the changed contact's Notes.
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Launch the Contacts 7.1 app in OSX 10.8.2.
    2. Search for a string that appears in several contacts' Notes field.
    3. Click on one of the contacts in the search results.
    4. Ensure that "Edit Card" mode is NOT enabled.
    5. Alter the found string in the contact's Notes field.
    6. Click on a different contact in the search results list.
    Expected Results:
    The change is saved and the changed contact disappears from the search results list.
    Actual Results:
    All found contacts disappear from the search results list, and all found contacts' Notes are replaced with the changed contact's Notes.
    Regression:
    This issue did not exist in OSX 10.7's Address Book app. I have not had the opportunity to test earlier releases of OSX 10.8's Contacts app.
    Notes:
    Example:
    Suppose a search for "P1" finds three contacts:
      Name: Alan  |  Note: Ask permission. P1
      Name: Betsy  |  Note: Backup files. P1
      Name: Charles  |  Note: Call. P1
    While "Edit Card" mode is NOT enabled, in Alan's note, change "P1" to "P2". Then click on Betsy in the search results list. Betsy and Charles' Notes are erroneously and permanently replaced with Alan's Note:
      Name: Alan  |  Note: Ask permission. P2
      Name: Betsy  |  Note: Ask permission. P2
      Name: Charles  |  Note: Ask permission. P2

  • Replace With After Effects Composition... What's the Point...???

    Hi...
    So I have a timeline that I want to CC in AE....
    I select all the clips and choose "Replace with After Effects Compostion"
    PPRO correctly initiates an AE launch which then correctly makes a Composition with all my clips in it...
    Now, ALL the clips, while there in the AE Comp, DONT have the clip names I gave them in the Timeline in PPRO.
    They have the original clips names. Like MVI_9987.MOV which is totally misleading....
    Why on earth would PPRO NOT adopt the names of the clips in the timeline to the after effects compostion ??
    This is my major gripe with Adobe, you have so many GREAT and VERY Innovative but totally NON-Thought-Thru' features. It is killing me.
    This here among so manu other things is what makes your CS Suite (Aside from Photoshop) a Pro-Sumer Solution....
    A professional solution is NOT regarded professional because it has fancy features, it is regarded as such because the features it HAS have been WELL contemplated and integrated.
    I hope your CS6 version is going to take care of all those small problems...
    But then again, been having those hopes since CS4

    The bit I do not understand is why the need to rename the Clips and how that becomes of value in either PPRO or AEFX (or Resolve or elsewhere).
    Say YOU have to colorize my movie that I am currently cutting. The timeline consists of about 630 clips, derived from about 300 sources (Clips in Bin)
    The clips in the bin have the original rush name... Thus BLABLA.mov... This way you can alsways go back and in time. Adobe has integrated something called METADATA and THAT should be use to describe scenes, shots etc.
    That is why adobe made a BIG deal out of integrating Metadata..
    Now, in above scenario let us assume that you CC in AfterEffects. I'll send you the project via overnight on  a hard drive, and tomorrow you open it either via Importing the Project into AE or by opening it in PPRO and hitting replace with AE comp.
    You going to get 630 individual layers in the AE Com. The layer names are going to be derived from the source clips. So you are going to be looking at MAX 300 different names. YOU SHOULD be looking at 630 different names. But you are not.
    AE will ignore the PPRO clipsnames and just generically name the layers by the source clip name.... Again... even if I had renamed all the source clips in the bins ONE source clip could be contain 7 differen subclips in the whole timeline.. ALL THOSE clips would share the same name... Thus nothing to do with it label..
    So, now I have YOU on the phone, breathing down my neck, trying to communicate to me WHICH clip had THAT cool sunrise effect. I DID label it Sunrise... But PPRO and AE messed that up... So I go....
    Hoooold On, Shooter..... Let me just open the timeline and count from left to right.... 1,2,3,4,5,6.... 459,,,, Ohhhh there it is... Clip number 459 from the left... Have fun Counting clips.
    I hope you understand what I am saying, if not... OK...  at least then I can understand why you DONT understand -)   (No Disrespect Meant)
    You make the following over dramatic claim about how fast your workflow is ....but to me, that would be slow and imprecise.
    Based on your questions I can understand why you would feel that way.
    I bet you are one of those guys thinking FCPx's event library sucks ;-)
    Can you tell me how you name the clips in the workflow you describe here...?
    I select the clip, hit ctrl-r (rename clip), give it a name and move on to the next...
