It's a Driver issue. You need to reset the printing system by deleting the current printer and re-adding it, like this:

  1. Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences .
  2. Select Print & Scan.
  3. Right-click (or Ctrl + click) your product in the Printers list in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system .
  4. Click OK to confirm the reset.
  5. Type your user Name and Password .
  6. Click OK . The printing system resets.
  7. Next go to the Library\Printers folder and move the Lexmark folder to the trash.
  8. Under Print & Scan, click the plus sign and re-add the printer.
  9. The drivers should be reinstalled automatically.

Applications Folder, Utility and look for Disc Utility and use it to change the password. If that does not do it, then use the Recovery Disc and reformat the HD and start over.

How do I format the external hard drive on a Macintosh computer?

To format the drive for MAC OSX

1. Connect the drive to your computer.

2. Open Disk Utility. (Applications folder > Utilities folder > Disk Utility). Select the hard drive in the left hand column and click on the Erase tab.

3. In the Volume Format drop-down menu, select Mac OS Extended *.

4. Once you have selected the format and have named the drive, click on Erase. You will be presented with a 'Are you Sure' dialog.

5. The drive will format and upon completion will be available for use.

Note: * For the best performance, we recommend using Mac OS Extended format. However, if you will be transferring files between a Windows system and a Macintosh, format the drive as MS-DOS (FAT32) or use a program such as MediFour

internet crashing- what's the problem/ solution?


Sometimes for what seems to be a very difficult issue, can in fact have a simple solution.

These browsers have preferences lists in their directories which if corrupted adversely impact the functionality of these web browser applications, so try these steps:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
-REMOVING SAFARI & FIREFOX PLISTS-

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} • From your desktop, click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.

• From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Home from the
drop-down menu. This will take you to your Home folder.

• Locate and open the Library folder

• Within Library folder look for the Preferences folder and open it.

• Locate and remove to the Trash, these files:
com.apple.Safari.plist
com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist
org.mozilla.firefox.plist

Once you have removed these files to the Trash, click the back button on the open Finder window.
• This will return you back to the Library view where you now will need to locate and remove to the Trash, the folder entitled "Caches".

*Once that folder is removed to the Trash, close all applications and open windows.

* Next, click on the Apple menu icon (upper left corner of your screen) and select from the drop down window, Logout<username>. This will take you the main login window. Simply log back in to your current user account.

* Before testing your Safari and Firefox browsers, perform one more procedure in order to repair folder/file permissions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utility run this repair permissions process, until completion.

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

• Once this is completed, now you should relaunch
both Safari and Firefox to see if they will now launch.
Update me if these processes did not help.

Thanks!

Regards,
