    I was just scrolling through my apps when the screen suddenly froze. A force shutdown didn't work and when I pressed the silent on/off button, there was no vibration either. The frozen screen faded to white with a few lines and about 10 minutes later, the edges started to turn black, forming a ring which got larger till about 4 hours later, the screen turned completely black. I tried connecting to iTunes but it wasn't detecting the phone and I can't do anything with it now... When it turned completely black, I charged it and after a while, the low batt screen came on but it was fuzzy and flickering with the white ring... What to do know ???????

    Restart your computer while holding down left mouse key. That will eject the CD and your Mac will start as normal.

  • I cannot access Facebook after going through all the recommended ways to fix the problem. Help me.

    I went through all the reccomended ways to try and allow Firefox to access the cite. however after i do that ill try and access the web citie and everytime i get an error page. It says connection was reset. So i went back to Firefox support and did the recommended way to fix it again and still it did not fix my problem. How to i fix this issure?

    I dont understand the answer
    '''''""The problem can be solved by opening FF and choosing Tools...Add On's...select the SEARCH addon and choose UNINSTALL...restart FF browser when asked, then reload Mobsters. This worked for me. The suggestion on the 404 that says to remove Search via Add/Remove Programs is completely BS, as Search doesnt show there. ""'''''

  • How do I stop my Cursor from being stuck on the Hand tool icon?

    I have Illustrator 10 (Yes, I'm aware it's old, but I can't afford to buy the newest version, as much as I want it) and Photoshop Elements 1(Again, I know it's old, but I do have 7, but it sucks, because when I go to scale pictures down, there is no option of pixels, just inches, points, and everything but pixels, and I only use pixels, so I only use PSE1), and they both started getting the hand icon as the cursor, no matter what tool I selected.
    One time I had Illustrator open, it was fine, left it for awhile, came back, and it was last on the Direct Selection Tool, and it was now showing the hand icon. I would reset the computer and it would be fine, thinking memory is the issue, but it just happened again. I had rebooted my computer(just on an unrelated thing), and decided I'd work on one of my cartoon characters and I loaded it up, and the picture, and voila! The hand icon was showing right off the bat, and I didn't want to reboot again.
    Is there something I can do? Seems like these Adobe programs are going "hand" on me. I just am very frustrated, as I never had so much as no trouble with these programs(I had I10 for a long time), and now they go wonky on me. It first started with PSE1, but only once, and I thought it was just a random glitch, nothing to worry about, since it never happened again....til it did much, much later.

  • How do I stop my browser from defaulting to an Australian version of an American website - I want the US version not the Auatralian one. Thanks

    I'm trying to connect to the US version of Popular Science and my browser keeps getting the Auatralian website. I don't want the Australian site. How do I stop this "local country" defaulting? Thanks

    I think you'd do better to ask Popular Science. It re-directs to the Australian version in other browsers, too.

  • I have tryed to instal upadate to firefox 6.0.2 like 5 times lately, and it goes through all the motions of doing an update, and even told me it was complete, then it still is the last version!

    i have tried to install the newest version about 5 times now, everytime that i try, it goes through the steps, all the way to where it says finish! i have tried doing it standard install and custom install. i've tried doing it straight from other websites telling me that i need an updated version... ie. hotmail, facebook, and i've also gone to mozilla.com, and it always does the same thing, what am i doing wrong?

    Something that you have installed has changed your User Agent or is keeping your User Agent from updating with the new install/update of Firefox. I suspect that it is Fast Browser Search which is shown as part of your User Agent. To get rid of Fast Browser Search do the following:
    #Close Firefox (Firefox button > Exit '''''OR''''' File > Exit)
    #Open the Vista Control Panel and remove/uninstall "Fast Browser search protection" and "Fast Browser Search" (MyWebTatoo)

  • Hi upgraded my iphone 5 and now two of my apps keep crashing when I press on them it just goes back to the home screen one is Facebook and the other is my fitbit app.

    Hi upgraded my iphone 5 to ios7.1 and now my Facebook and fitbit app won't work it just keeps going back to front screen and suggestions on how I can fix this if so please put answer in simple words. Thanks

    Hello Glenys,
    It sounds like you have 2 apps that are not working as expected. I recommend the steps from the following article named:
    iOS: An app you installed unexpectedly quits, stops responding, or won’t open
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1702
    These steps will get you started but therea are more if needed:
    Restart the app
    Close the app and open it again.
    Restart your device
    Turn the device off and on.
    Update your device software and your apps
    Update your device to the latest version of iOS.
    Update your apps:
    Open the App Store and tap Updates.
    If updates are available, tap Update All.
    If asked, enter your Apple ID password. The updates will download and install.
    You might need a Wi-Fi connection to update some apps.
    Install another app from the App Store
    If your installed app won't open, download and install a free app that isn't on your iOS device. This should reset your Apple ID authorization.
    Remember to use the same Apple ID that you used to download the app that you're having issues with.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Take care,
    Sterling

  • Youtube freezes even after going through all the solutions

    After, deleting cookies, resting firefox, re installing firefox, factoring defaulting firefox literally exhausting every solution on your website when i launch youtube it crashes my firefox browser, even the borders of the window for firefox goes crazy. At this point im so frustrated im ready to permanently uninstall firefox

    Have you tried disabling HWA?
    You might need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).
    Then perform these steps:
    *Click the orange Firefox button at the top left, then select the "Options" button, or, if there is no Firefox button at the top, go to Tools > Options.
    *In the Firefox options window click the ''Advanced'' tab, then select "General".
    *In the settings list, you should find the ''Use hardware acceleration when available'' checkbox. Uncheck this checkbox.
    *Now, restart Firefox and see if the problems persist.
    Additionally, please check for updates for your graphics driver by following the steps mentioned in the following Knowledge base articles:
    * [[Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems]]
    * [[Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL]]
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
    Thank you.
