MacBook Repair Application

Having problems installing a macbook application, I get this message -
"You can not open the application … because it is not supported on this system"

The application ends with ".sea", so I think this might be the problem, what can I do to repair this?

If it is not what benz06 said then it may be a classic application. If you are running Leopard than classic applications no longer run which may also give you that error message.

I believe you will need to download Stuffit Expander. We used to use SEA files a lot in the old mac days, but now they've been replaced by the DMG file. Anyway, Stuffit has a free version that can be found here. Since they don't make it extract itself on the new Macs, you need a program to do it now. If that doesn't work, you might have a corrupt file or something else. Let me know what happens.

I cannot open iPhoto on my MacBook, missing python framework. Will allow remote access using TeamViewer for help.


It looks like your version of iPhoto may not be compatible with OSX 10.9.5.

Can you check which version of iPhoto you have installed... go to Applications, select the iPhoto icon, press the "command" and "i" key at the same time, and see what it says under 'version'...

I would suggest launching the App Store application and checking for any updates, especially anything to do with iPhoto.

If you've updated iPhoto but the library is an older version, then this may help:

Can not get audio input on macbook air


I usually find using a free application called soundsource available at http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11334/soundsource gives you all the available options for input and output options. Once downloaded instal it into your applications folder and open it up, it will appear in your menu bar as a headphone icon. Click on the icon and you will see what options you have. Hope this helps.

My macbook air cannot preview anything by its Preview application. i cannot open iphoto. when i start, if i open Macintosh HD or any other folder on Desktop then I cannot open system preferences and vice...


I would start by attempting too restart. If this does not fix it, open Disk Utility (Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility). From here click verify permissions and then verify disk. If either of those come up with errors, then click the corresponding solution (repair permissions or repair disk). This should solve any problems you are having, but if it does not, Insert the USB drive that your MacBook Air came with and reinstall the OS. Good Luck!

There is a small little coloured ball that comes on my computer and then it freezes while I am playing a game


Thanks for contacting Fixya Support.

Anytime you see the "rainbow pinwheel" which does manifest itself from time to time in Mac OS X environments, this is an indication of either a software issue or even a hardware issue.

Considering you are playing a game, it would be safe to assess that this issue you are having is in relation to the game you are playing (being unresponsive), means that this is a software issue.

There are several variables in regards to fixing issues with the spinning pinwheel in relation to a software.

If your application is not responding, you can first of all Force Quit the application by selecting Apple Command, Option and the Esc keys, and either select the game application in the window, which should be displayed as "Not Responding" and Force Quit or select Finder and simply relaunch it.

If you are unable to get your Mac OS X system to respond at all, then try a PRAM Reset process as shown below:

--PRAM RESET --
• First, hold in your power button for approximately 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown, if you have not already turned your Mac off.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)
This should help with the freezing issue:

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Macbook to start up.
--Check to see if you are able to launch and play your game now.

If neither of these steps work, then if you have your Mac OS X installation disc which came with your Macbook, then I would finally recommend you perform these steps below with the installation (Macbook Restore) disk:


-RUN DISK UTILITY WITH MAC OS X INSTALLATION or RESTORE DISK-

Insert your Mac OS X Startup disk (Note: make sure the disk contains the same Mac OS X platform that your Macbook is currently running)

•Reboot your Mac
•At the Apple Chime, press the C key and hold it until you see a White screen, gray Apple and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.
•Mac will boot from the startup disk to the Installer environment
• From the Installer Menu bar, click Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility application.
• Click on on the hard drive at the top of the window in the left sidebar and
• Select "Repair Disk"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair the disk until completion
• At the end of this process, reboot your Mac

Now attempt to run your game application and see how your system responds after the Disk Repair process.

If the Macbook still persists in freezing or the game application still causes the spinning pinwheel to appear, then you may need to increase your Macbook's RAM memory, as the game may require more memory resources than you current have installed with your Macbook, or it may not be compatible with the current version of Mac OS X you are running with your Macbook.

I hope these steps point you in the right direction.

Regards,

Hi Keilah
It's an odd sounding problem, but try this. Close all the running programs so that you are just in the Finder. Open the Applications folder on the HD and locate the Utilities folder. In there is a small application called Disk Utility. Launch it and then select your HD on the panel at the left hand side - it might say Toshiba, Hitachi, Fujitsu or something like that. Then in the main panel select the tab that says "First Aid"
At the bottom of that main panel are four buttons, 2 of them may be greyed out. Select the one at the bottom left, "Repair Disk Permissions"
Go and have a coffee while it does its stuff (it could take anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes).
At the end it will say that it has completed. It may give up a message or 2 to the effect that some items have been modified and could not be repaired - don't worry - it 's a glitch that doesn't matter.
Now quit the program and restart the MacBook. Is the problem still there?
