Blue Screen - Can't finish setup

So I've had this phone for a whole 2 days!  Likely my fault tho, because my son and I received the same phones on the same day.  He inadvertantly started to set up my phone (didn't realize the sim cards were already in the phones), so I had to do a wipe.  Now the phone will not do anything ... when I turn it on, it loads the BB blue ring, and then just goes to a blue wallpaper, but nothing else.  When I pull the screen down, I do get the "emergency calls" message, but it won't swipe any other way.  I've tried reloading the OS through BB Link, but it just keeps saying I need to finish setup, and I'm stuck at the beginning again.  Arrrrg!  And it's New Years Day, so nothing is open, and I need it tomorrow!  Helllp!!

    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. 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 installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Reinstall Snow Leopard
    If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.

  • Freezing with blue screen & can't boot from single user mode or disk

    My keyboard is wired and plugged directly into my Intel iMac running OSX 10.5.8. I do not have the Leopard disks, but I do have the Tiger disks. I was trying to boot in single-user mode so that I could run AppleJack to try to fix another issue I'm having--I get the light blue startup screen flashed at me several times daily for the past week or so. When the blue screen flashes, it totally freezes my computer (obviously) and lasts from 1-10 seconds. I can't find anything that is triggering it. I haven't installed anything new that I'm aware of, and it happens whether the computer has previously been slept or not. I'm also not using an external display / additional monitor.
    Also, for anyone who is nice enough to answer, please explain everything--I'm not an expert user.

    Well since it is so time consuming and a security risk to turn off FileVault, I was hoping to hear from someone with more experience if this was the solution, or just something to "try"? Are you speaking from experience or just making a suggestion, leroydouglas? Thanks.

  • Blue screen - can't use disc utility

    My 2012 Macbook Pro won't start up and has a blank screen after doing the mac tune with the apple logo. I tried starting up with command R keys held down and then again with Option key held down to get to the recovery HD and then it gave me a blue screen both times.
    I have pulled out all peripherals however in September last year I had the dvd drive replaced (as it wasn't working) with a Sony Apple SATA DVD drive. Don't know how to get around this.
    Before it broke down yesterday the hard drive fan was running quite hot and loud.
    Anything else I can try?

  • Blue Screen, can't restore.

    So I bought this iPod touch, 5th gen for 200 bucks in July.  It was working fine until yesterday, I went to update it to iOs 6.0, it died in the middle of the update, so I went to charge it.  I turned it on only to find a blue screen, I did a manual reset like 15 times, each time same result.  I checked the internet, and I saw that  restoring it while in safe mode will fix it.  Well I put it in safe mode, went to restore, and it times out. Every.single.time.  I have updated to the latest iTunes, and I have no idea what to do now.
    Updating to ios 6.0, it crashed, got a blue screen, when I go to restore it in safe mode it times out.
    Any help is appreciated.

    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iPod fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.




  • Blue Screen - Can't Log on to my Account

    Suddenly, I cannot log on to my Mac - G4 Tower - OSX 10.4.7. When I switch it on, all I get is a blue screen - after the "starting MAC OS X" box and the spinning gear. The Mac is set up so that my account automatically logs on but nothing happens - the screen flashes and the spinning gear re-appears frequently but I cannot log on. I have started in single user mode and run fcsk -fy; but this had made no difference.
    I have started in SAFE MODE and can log on using another account (Supervisor) but when I try to log on to my account, I return to the log on screen which still says SAFE MODE.
    From the Supervisor account I cannot access the Login items for my own account, so I'm not sure how I can check them and remove anything I think is causing the problem.
    I'm beginning to think that my account is corrupted in some way but really have no idea what to do next. Can anyone help please?
    Thanks in advance.

    hi cliff--
    do you mean you went through the steps i suggested, or all the ones in the article? if you went through all the steps in the article, and it still isn't working, you should archive and install your operating system. this should allow you to access your account again. steps for the archive are outlined here. make sure you repair the disk beforehand with disk utility, and run software updates afterwards to bring the operating system up to the current version, or things may not work properly. you will have to reinstall any third party software.

  • HT1492 Start-up disk is full and can't go past the blue screen; can't delete read-only files on single-user mode. Please help.

    I have had my Mac mini for about 6 years and I guess it had enough of me (haha), so the start-up disk got full and it shut down before I could empty files on my drive. Unfortunately, all these years I hadn't backed up anything and now I can't access anything since it won't boot past the apple logo (and the blue screen for that matter). I have tried rebooting (holding shift as the mac mini loads), but that didn't help since the start-up disk will still be full and stuck on the blue screen. I am now trying the single-user mode (holding command key+s), and I tried to delete files in the trash bin but all of the files are read-only and access is denied! so I basically can't delete anything on the mac mini (it says "Root device is mounted read-only"). So the key here is to change the permissions but I don't know how to exactly do that. Can someone help me figure this out? (and type the command in the unix language please!!) [ Note: We have two users on this mac mini if that helps.]

    Run the following command:
    mount -uw /
    This isn't a permissions issue.

  • GE60 0NC-622UK laptop is stuck on Blue Screen can't login! please help..

    Had this laptop for just one month, before it's all good. Windows 8 64bit.
    In last two days, the mouse and touchpad became dysfunctional occasionally, able to move the pointer but just could't click on anything regardless of left or right, e.g. choose or open new. It would be working after logoff/relogin and reboot, but same problem still came up randomly.
    Last night, I did the same thing to reboot the laptop after had the pointer dysfunction, but then it displayed a blue screen before the login with a error called 'System Thread Exception Not Handled', and then just stayed on this page would't reboot automatically (waited for 30 mins), so it left me no choice to shut it down by pressing power on/off button manually, afterwards with couple of times rebooting, it just kept going into this same blue screen and could't get into the system...Sometimes it would automatically start diagnosing before blue screen, ask me to restore or repair, but none of them fixed the problem, repeatedly stuck on blue screen every time...
    And I don't have any windows 8 dvd, delivered box only has one for drivers and manual book.. so boot from dvd is not possible..
    p.s. sorry about my english if caused confusion

    Try starting Windows 8 in Safe Mode, its kinda difficult in Windows 8 to do you have to be very precise when doing it, right as the system boots you need to start spamming F8 sometimes you have to do Shift+F8.
    You may want to disable fast boot in the BIOS so you have some time to get ready to hit the buttons, once you get the boot menu up try Start Up Repair first and see if it fixes anything then try booting, if noting then try safe mode and un-do anything you have done to the system recently.
    Let me know how this goes.
    Really appreciated your help!
    I get into troubleshooting page by pressing F3 when laptop was booting up, and changed start up with Safe mode which works..I've done many things in Safe mode, like updated drivers, run anti-virus program, deleted recent installed software, and then somehow the blue screen error was gone after reboot...It seems one of them must be the cause for that problem.
    Anyway, my laptop is working properly now, thanks a lot, if error happens again in future i might still need some help

  • Can't finish setup for new ipod

    I recently lost my ipod and purchased a new 3rd generation nano. I reinstalled itunes, but cannot get past the software license agreement screen. Every time, I select "I have read and understand the agreement", then press save button. The agreement is saved to my hard drive, but then I return to the same screen. There is no way to synch my new ipod or put any music on it. Can someone give me clear instructions on how to deal with this problem? I sure wish I hadn't spent the money for another Apple product.

    Open the Control Panel, click on Displays, and set the monitor's resolution to at least 1024 by 768.

  • "Add New Printer" can't finish setup...grayed out

    Can anyone please help me with this?
    I have a Brother MFC-290c multifunction USB'ed into my Extreme Gigabit. It shows up there in Airport Utility.
    Upon printer setup in the Preferences Pane I click the + symbol to add a new printer. The Brother shows up at that point and where it is connected but the "Add" button is grayed out as though I need to select a driver as well yet there is no driver suitable in the drop down list. Do I need to install my Brother driver onto my Powerbook before this will work?
    The setup guide makes no mention of this in the section on adding a printer.

    Congratulations, you have just entered the crappy side of Apple, Leopard. I have the same problem with my HP 5510 attached to my Extreme 802.11n. It works great form my little powerbook running Tiger (the best OS I have ever used), but me and my wife just bought new Macs and of course both have leopard and neither will print. We have the same no river in list issue. I have spent countless hours trying to fix personally and with both Apple and HP. Both sugest that I spent even more money to purchase a new Printer that will work. Yeah so it will no longer work when Sow leopard comes out... Thanks Apple/HP...
    Sorry, to here about the bad luck... I'd like to suggest doing a Google on Cups and Gutenprint although I am not sure if anyone is supporting these anymore.

  • Freezing and then blue screen every now and then

    I have just bought a iMac G5 with iSight and every now and then the machine will freeze for 2-10 seconds, then go to a blue screen. Audio is only affected when it freezes and all background tasks seem to run without issue. The blue screen can stay up for about anywhere between 3 to 40 seconds.
    Anyone seen this or have any idea?

    HI and Welcome to Apple Discussions...
    Good time to check the startup disk for errors.
    Insert Installer disk and Restart, holding down the "C" key until grey Apple appears.
    Go to Installer menu (Panther and earlier) or Utilities menu (Tiger and later) and launch Disk Utility.
    Select your HDD (manufacturer ID) in the left panel.
    Select First Aid in the Main panel.
    (Check S.M.A.R.T Status of HDD at the bottom of right panel. It should say: Verified)
    Click Repair Disk on the bottom right.
    If DU reports disk does not need repairs quit DU and restart.
    If DU reports errors Repair again and again until DU reports disk is repaired.
    When you are finished with DU, from the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Startup Manager.
    Select your start up disk and click Restart
    While you have the Disk Utility window open, look at the bottom of the window where you see Capacity and Available. *Make sure there is always 10% free disk space.*
    If you cannot boot from your install disk, try booting in Safe Mode
