ICal on my Mac keeps popping up and crashing

I have a MacBook Pro and OS X. If I try to start iCal it crashes. But, I don't need it but it randomly starts itself and the icon shows for 1 second on my Dock, and then crashes.

    Hi there
    There could be a couple of reasons for this. Just need to find out something first.

    Is the app selected in your login items in your account settings? (system preferences/accounts/log in items) If it is you need to remove it.
    Do you have a 'mobileMe' account that you are syncing with?

Macbook pro 13" crashes while booting.


Have you tried booting off of your restore disc? During startup you can boot from a CD, DVD, or thumb drive by holding "C" while booting. You can also try starting into recovery system by pressing "R" and "command" keys while booting, but I'd reccommend trying the bootable disc method first. Hope this helps!

My macbook pro has been repeatedly crashing ever since I attempted to install Trend Micro Smart Surfing


For sure there is a malware or a corrupt file or virus that has crept into the OS and makes the program crash at every instance. The possible solution that comes to my mind is to format the drive and reload once again so that the system will be free from any faulty registry files.
Also it will be best to contactmacbooks who sold this product as it must be confirmed before you attempt to reload.
Take consensus in this case to confirm the problem specially if the PC is under warranty.

Question 1: how old is the mac book? If its very old, it may be a problem of age... sounds stupid, but old machines can give up the ghost. If its really dusty where the fan intake is... the build up of dust could cause an over heating problem... try cleaning the vents with a hoover and some gas air. question 2: is it running from mains power or battery? if its running on battery alone.. it could be a weak battery that needs replacing. failing all of these... take it to your local dealer and get them to give it a look over. if you dont wanna do that... time to invest in a new machine possibly. good luck

Restart your mac. As it's restarting/booting up, hold down the command, option, R and P keys simultaneously. As it's booting up and you're holding these keys, you should hear the startup chime, continue to hold the keys down, it will cycle and you'll hear the startup chimes again. Let it go thru this cycle 7 (seven) times before you let up on those keys. Once it's cycled 7 times, let it boot up normally.
If that doesn't work, then reinstall the original system software that came with the Macbook. You may have to reformat the hard disk and do a clean install.

Samsung se-s084c and mac os x 10.5.8


Similar problem except worse. Can't even burn anything. Furthermore, disks inserted in the drive are not appearing on the desktop or anywhere. The drive appears in disk utility. It also seems to cause a host of other problems, various burning applications are CRASHING and not even responding to force quit (haven't tried to kill from terminal yet). We've had to reboot several times.

So far experience is awful. Going to return this if it computer keeps crashing everytime the drive is plugged in.

It means there is an error in either the code of your OS or the game, causing it to crash.
If this was a one-time error, and you can now run the game, you shouldn't worry about a thing. If it keeps giving the error, try deinstalling, then installing the game again. If that doesn't help either, I'm afraid you'll have to reinstall your operating system. (though I've only ever seen that on Windows machines)

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

When I start my macbook a blue screen appears with a folder with a ? mark in it flashing


That message means that it can't find the start up folder and or your hard drive has crashed.

If you insert your OS disk or a copy of Disk Warrior you can boot to the cd / dvd by holding down the "C" key and then powering up the Macbook.

Let me know if you have that OS cd and then we'll go from there.
