Ok so I got my mac mini today and I am trying to set it up but my wireless keyboard does not sync up. I have tried entering the code that the mini displays but still cannot get past the sync keyboard screen. Since I dont have a wired keyboard ...any ideas

Happy Thanksgiving. Any ideas on how to sync up a brand new man mini with a wireless keyboard. My attempts at following the directions have been frustated so far. Entering the numerical code has not yet led to a successful sync up.

Alright, very good.

  • IMac G5 running OS 10.4.11. Started playing with a bluetooth speaker (may or may not be related). Now I cannot get past the blue screen on startup. I can get into safe mode. Tried install disc for disc utility and reloaded OS. Still get blue screen.

    I have an older iMac G5 running OS 10.4.11. The other day I started playing with a bluetooth speaker (may or may not be related). Now I cannot get past the blue screen on startup.
    I can get into safe mode. But no regular startup.
    I tried disabling bluetooth, thinking that might be related. It didn't help.
    I even tried using the install disc to run disc utility. That didn't work so I reloaded the OS.
    But I still get hung on the blue screen when trying a normal startup.
    All help would be appreciated.

    Try resetting the PMU/SMU and PRAM/NVRAM. You'd need to identify the mode of resetting depending on the model of your G5 iMac. The Apple support sites that would help you for this are –

  • My airport extreme (generation 5) was set up using wifi and has worked flawlessly (on macbook pro 2 iphones and window 7 HP pc)until recently. I have reset to factory defaults over and over but still cannot get on the internet. Any suggestions?

    My airport extreme (generation 5) was set up using wifi and has worked flawlessly (on macbook pro 2 iphones and window 7 HP pc)until recently. I have reset to factory defaults over and over but still cannot get on the internet. However I can then take my DSL cord and insert it in a different Ethernet port other than the WAN port and I can get internet on my Mac and iphones but only wifi on my husband's PC.  I hate to spend another $179 if this is just something I'm doing wrong. Please help

    I'm having a bit of trouble confirming that the ZyXEL is a combination modem & wireless-N router. If it is, then you really won't get any advantages of using the 802.11g AirPort.
    If the range of your ZyXEL is limited, you may find that doing either or both of the following will help: 1) Move the ZyXEL so that it is higher vs. lower in the room, that is away from any closed areas or placed in a metal cabinet, and 2) Changing radio channels. The latter is especially important in you live in an area where there are a number of competing Wi-Fi.
    A good utility to find out, is iStumbler. You would use this to find these other Wi-Fi and find which have the strongest signal value. Those that do, you would also want to note which channel they are operating on, and then, change yours to one that is at least 3-5 channels away. So, for example, if you find strong ones on channels 1 & 6, change yours to 11.

  • HT4623 I have done an iCloud download but now cannot get past the Terms and Conditions page, even after accepting.  It's just a revolving door!

    I have downloaded an updated version of iCloud but cannot get past the Terms and Conditions pages, notwithstanding accepting them.  Further, I cannot get back into iTunes.

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Go to Settings>iCloud and delete the account from the iPod and then sign back in.

  • Another iBook cannot get past the grey screen with spinning gear

    I have read the other posts on iBooks not starting up. I too have used Onyx recently but this was to cure the problem of a freeze. Now start up cannot get past the grey screen. PRAM has been zapped and safe mode will not work. Worse, the CD drive will take CDs so cannot go back to start up disk.
    Bizarrely, a visit to the Apple Store and the iBook started no problem. System was reinstalled using archive option and various health checks apparently showed no problems. But then got back home and again start up froze at grey screen with spinning gear. I have left it on this for over 15 minutes but to no avail. I have tried to connect to another ibook using T key to get target mode. I'm not sure if I am doing this right. I have started up working iBook plugged in the firewire to both machines and then started up ailing iBook holding down T key. 2nd iBook wont start at all.
    Any suggestions?

    An Archive and Install will preserve you user settings and data. You will need a minimum of 5 GB free on the hard drive to perform an A&I; you can reduce the space required by about 1 GB by selecting the option to install language support only for the language you use (assuming you don't need multiple languages).
    However, after seeing your other post (BTW, it'll be easier to keep track if relted issues are in the same thread), you do not want to try an A&I if Disk Utility is reporting anything about 'could not be repaired'. Doing so will would ensure problems down the road, if it worked at all. It's possible for one disk problem to mask another. Whenever Disk Utility (or any other repair utility) reports making repairs, it's good practice to repeat the repair until it reports no problems found or it becomes clear it cannot repair the disk.
    DiskWarrior has an excellent track record at repairing problems that Disk Utility cannot (especially Disk Utility versions prior to OS X 10.4.2).
    If the drive cannot be repaired, you may be able to keep it by doing an erase install with the write zeros (one pass) option. That will update the hard drive firmware record of bad disk sectors to avoid using. If there are only a few bad sectors, that may let you keep using the hard drive for several more years. An erase install will do just that to your data, through. If you have access to another Mac with either a large amount of free disk space of a DVD burner, you can try using the other Mac as host and the eMac as target in FireWire target disk mode. You can run the host's copy of Disk Utility on the eMac hard drive, and hopefully be able to mount the emac HD so that you can back up the data in your Home directory.

  • HT4718 I cannot get past the restore screen

    So, big problem. I have had to replace my logic board. Following this, using Mountain Lion, my mac was unusable, just beach ball on every click. I did restore Mountain Lion, but no change. I cannot restore from time machine as I get an error message saying restart. Now, I cannot get past the restore screen, no matter what keys are held at startup. If I hold the option key at startup, I get the recovery disk and back up showing, neither of which can be used.
    In short, I'm stuck, any help appreciated!

    If you successfully restored the iPod to factory settings/new iPod (went through all the steps without errors), then time for an appointment a the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    You are still under warranty.  Call Apple Care.

  • I cannot get past the password screen

    I cannot get past the password screen, I've tried resetting it but it tells. Me I'm not an allowed user

    If the old Macbook(?) has Snow Leopard 10.6 installed, and you have that retail install disc or the system disc of the current (base level) system on it, you could use the installer disc as a boot volume and use the utilities on the booted install disc to reset the password. It should be a menu option in the booted Install disc, way short of any effort to re-install anything. And if your computer can do this, the same DVD has Disk Utility, to check/repair the Mac HDD.
    What OS X version do you have, & what MacBook, etc is that?
    Good luck & happy computing!

    When registering the phone, you should be able to choose later or basically not now at the upper right hand side. Most of what I think it will at least have you do is sign into your Apple ID but thats it.

    Perhaps the reason that your username and password are not recognised is because you have caps lock on.
