Some times my new iMacs display start flickring when I starts playing a game. I am very annoyed. I have bought it only 1 month ago. What can I do?

A flickering display sounds to me like a hardware problem.  Or does this only happen with a specific game? Of course your machine is still under warrantee so you could take advantge of it if you have a local apple store.

  • The horizontal line has been appiered at the bottom of the touch screen. In addition to that problem the screen starts blinking after 3-5 minutes of use. I bought it 4 months ago.

    Please help me to resolve a problem with my iPod touch. It has horizontal line at the bottom of the screen and screen starts blinking after 3 minutes of use. It's so frustrating as I bought just 4 months ago and didn't even think tha apple products have such defects.

    All electical producs have defects.  Apple products are not immune.
    To rule out a software problem try:
    - A reset. Nothing will be lost.
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory defaults/new iPod
    - If still problem make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.  If the iPod is defective you will walk out with a replacment.

    Microsoft Office 2004 (Word) unable to save files
    I have been running Office 2004 on my Intel iMac with Snow Leopard for some time and all of a sudden I cannot save a document. Word just stopped responding and I have to force quit. I can open Word and create a new document but I cannot save it. I reinstalled Word but that didn’t help. Then went to the Internet and found at least one other Mac user having the same problem which it suggests is caused by a recent Mac Security Update:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2004-macword/word-2004-wil l-not-open-or-save-documents/b04eb870-9b0d-4f3b-bb47-b122301e36f6
    So I check for a new Mac Security Update and sure enough there was one. I downloaded it and now Word seems to be working, as it should. I can both open and save files. The only problem remaining is that when I open Word I get the following error message “An unexpected error occurred while trying to load the Microsoft Framework library”. I contacted Apple but they were unable to help.
    How can I get rid of this error message?

    Look, I realize you might have to get your machine working, so this is how you revert back.
    Restore proceedure to pre-Security Update 2012-001 v 1.0 & v 1.1
    #1 Backup your personal data off the machine.
    Backup files off the computer (not to TimeMachine). If you don't have a external drive, get one and connect to the USB/Firewire port and simply drag and drop copy your User folder to the external drive, it will copy all your files. It's best to have two backups of your data off the machine when trying to restore.
    Disconnect all drives now to prevent any mistakes from occuring.
    #2 Reinstall OS X 10.6 from disk
    Get out your 10.6 install disk and make sure it's clean and polished (very soft cloth and a bit of rubbing alcohol, no scratches) If your disk is borked, you'll have to order a new one from Apple with your serial number.
    Hold c boot off the 10.6 disk (wired keyboard, internal optical drive), use Disk Utility First Aid to >Repair Disk  of your internal drive  (do not format or erase!!), Quit DU and simply re-install 10.6.
    Note: Simply reinstalling 10.6 version from disk (without erasing the drive) only replaces 10.6.8 with 10.6.x and bundled Apple programs, won't touch your files (backup anyway)  or most programs, unless they installed a kext file into OS X itself. (only a few on average do this)
    #3 Update to 10.6.8 without Security Update 2012-001 v1.0 or v1.1
    Reboot and log in, update to 10.6.8 via Software Update, but EXCLUDE THE Security Update 2012-001 by checkinig the details and unchecking the blue check box.
    #4 Reinstall any non-working third party programs
    When you reboot, make sure to reinstall any programs that require kext files installed into OS X, you'll know, they won't work when you launch them or hang for some reason as they are missing the part they installed into OS X.
    If for some freakish reason you get gray screen at any time when booting (possible it might occur when you reinstall older programs), hold the shift key down while booting (Safe Mode, disables kext files) and update your installed third party software so it's compatible with 10.6.8.

    That's it really.

  • Some times the logs not display in process chains

    Some times the logs not display in process chains then how could we find them??

    If you are in Tcode RSPC and opened your process chain you are able to click on the Logs icon. It will prompt you for a date selection.
    If this still doesn't work you might have forgotton to activate and schedule your process chain. Before you activate check that your start variant is set to Direct scheduling by double clicking on the start variant.
    hope this helps.

    Hi. I have shared an Apple ID with my children for some time.  As they are getting older they do not wnat me seeing all their messages, photos etc so want their own accounts.  How can they access their purchased music and apps on the new account please?

    Yes.
    On their iOS devices, under Settings>iTunes & App Store, they should use your Apple ID. When they log into iCloud, iMessage and Facetime, they should use their personal Apple IDs.

  • Why does my iMac display go off when I am starting up or waking up my machine from sleep..

    Why does my iMac display go off when I am starting up or waking up my machine from sleep..?
    When my iMac goes to sleep I then later try to click the magic track pad or keyboard and it will usually then show the initial password entry login screen and then go off. The machine is still on but the display is black and will sometimes flash up the screen again if I press the magic track pad or keyboard but will then black out again..

    Well, there are many different reasons why it does this. It might shut off due to power voltage problems, system overheats, or there is a System Problem. The reason it might be hard to boot up is because your power button might not work properly or your system hard drive is damaged.

  • I purchased Adobe Acrobat Professional and have been trying to activate it for some time.  I also had this same program on my previous computer.  How do I de-activate it from that computer so that I can activate it on my new computer?

    I purchased Adobe Acrobat Professional and have been trying to activate it for some time.  I also had this same program on my previous computer.  How do I de-activate it from that computer so that I can activate it on my new computer?

    Hi larrygoynes,
    To transfer the license from one pc to another the step you have to follow is to 'Deactivate' the license first from the older machine.
    To accomplish this you need to Launch Acrobat, go to the 'Help' menu and select 'Deactivate'
    On the new machine you can install Acrobat and then use the serial number to 'Activate' the software and this will complete the license transfer.
    You can refer the KB Doc: Activation & Deactivation Help

  • I'm trying to transfer data (docs, emails) from G4 iMac running os 10.3.9 to brand new iMac on 10.8.1  I'm stuck, any help greatly appreciated.  (Ethernet or wifi networking are both options if I can figure out how to get the machines to communicate.)

    I have the old machine backed up onto an external firewire disk but can't hook that up to the new imac as I'm waiting for delivery of a firewire 400/800 adaptor - therefore starting the old machine up as a slave is also subject to the same delay.
    I was hoping there might be some way to create a network between the 2 machines (and 2 different versions of the OS) to be able to transfer data across immediately but perhaps I'll just have to wait for my firewire adaptor to arrive.
    I don't understand why you're buying a Firewire adaptor, since AFAIK both of your computers have Firewire already built in.
    All you need is a firewire cable. Connect the Firewire socket on the old machine to the Firewire socket on your new iMac.
    Then start the old machine in Target Mode (i.e. by holding down the T key on its keyboard, while it's starting up, until you see the three-legged T icon hopping around the screen of the old machine.)
    At that point you will also see a new icon on the screen of your new iMac. This is the hard drive of your old machine.  By clicking on it you can navigate through it any way you like, just as you would normally.
    Just drag across whatever you want from the old computer to the new one. This will leave everything on the old computer untouched.
    - or use Migration Assistant but in my experience, Migration Assistant isn't very reliable and fails to migrate large amounts of stuff.

    Does anyone have the same problem with my new iMac?

    Problems such as yours are sometimes caused by files that should belong to you but are locked or have wrong permissions. This procedure will check for such files. It makes no changes and therefore will not, in itself, solve your problem.
    First, empty the Trash.
    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.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below to select it, then drag or copy it — do not type — into the Terminal window:
    find . $TMPDIR.. \( -flags +sappnd,schg,uappnd,uchg -o ! -user $UID -o ! -perm -600 -o -acl \) 2> /dev/null | wc -l
    Press return. The command may take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
    The output of this command, on a line directly below what you entered, will be a number such as "35." Please post it in a reply.

  • I want to know why display core dump when arch starts!

    I want to know why display core dump when arch starts!
    2008. 06 iso!
    u can see display coredump in starting......

    GAH, you silly people!
    Now I'm going to have to go off and write a program that selects a random string from a file to show on startup!
    (I'll probably fill the file with all the Arch snapshot names)
    EDIT: I should mention that you're silly because you managed to get me following a random compulsion.
    EDIT AGAIN: Done! I now get a random snapshot name in that spot whenever my system boots. I can post the script if anyone wants it, it's three lines.
    EDIT ONE LAST TIME: Oh wait, three lines and a extra file full of snapshot names.

  • ITunes - new iMac freezes & beach balls when trying to sync iPhone 3

    I have a new iMac running Lion. When I try to sync my old iPhone 3g, iTunes freezes with the dreaded spinning beach ball for ever! When I do connect the iPhone, iTunes recognizes my phone in the list, but does not ever give me the option to even erase all my old content. Stranger still - when I get tired of the beach ball spinning and disconnect the iphone, the itunes list briefly displays all my iphone content (playlists, etc.) and then goes away. We have successfully synced a very old ipod shuffle (after wiping its contents) to new Imac, so cables, etc are not the issue. we did have to de-authorize all computers to get new Imac going, perhaps a clue? I have backed up the iphone to both an old mac mini (where it still syncs flawlessly) and have migrated data to new imac so I could recover. I am willing to lose iPhone data so I can sync. I am too cheap to buy newer iphone as it still works great.
    my thoughts:
    1. erase all content on iphone and then try to sync?
    2. grumble and get new iphone?

    do you guy's fix the problem?

  • My new ipad 2 freezes after using the internet for about 15 minutes. It is properly connected to the network and works fine after I re-start it but it is very annoying to have to re-start it every so often. All other laptops on the internet work fine.

    My ipad 2 freezes when using the internet. Re-starting the ipad fixes the problem but it is very annoying to have to do this. I have tried all of the trouble shooting suggestions including re-joining the network. All other laptops work fine on my network. I think there is something wrong with my new ipad.

    I recommend two things before taking your iPad back to the Apple Store.
    1.  Fully close safari, by going to your home screen, then double tapping your home button to bring up your most recently used Apps.  Using your finger, hold it on any of the used Apps until they jiggle.  At this point, you'll see a to the top left of each App.  Touch the sign on Safari, which will fully close it.
    Then.......
    2.  Reboot your iPad.  Press and hold BOTH the power and home buttons at the SAME time for at least 10 seconds (hold past the red slider to shut down) until the Apple Logo appears, then let go of both buttons and your iPad will restart.  You won't lose any settings or data.
    If that does not help, then make an appointment at the Apple store to have your iPad checked.

  • Putting iMac display to sleep, when using TV as a screen.

    I have just connected my iMac to my 42" Panasonic 1080p TV, the connection was easy and is working fine. My questions relates to putting the iMac display to sleep when using the TV as a monitor, if I am watching You Tube, Sky Player or a DVD, I intend to use my TV as the monitor. Is it possible for the iMac to puts its display to sleep, whilst leaving the TV on. I played around with this today, however was unable to manage this.
    Regards Craig

    Hi Craig
    There is no way to independently sleep either the iMac's Display or an attached Display/TV. However if in the Display Arrangement Preferences you set the attached Display or TV to be the Main Display and turn Mirroring Off, then FrontRow and the Full Screen Mode app's like, DVD player, QuickTimePlayer, etc. will black out the unused iMac display.
