Apple imac registration question

After downloading an update for Garage Band, my computer is now asking me to register as if it was new. When I enter all the information, I land back at the start of the registration page.

I am now locked out of the system until this process is completed. What can I do?

    Hi there
    are you referring to the system asking for registration or 'Garage Band'? There should not be a reg' for garage band.

    I imagine you are stuck in the system registration. If that is the case it is a bit more tricky. You will have to boot the mac up from your install disk and run disk utilities. The first thing is to check permissions. You could also custom install the original garage band from the disk that will take it back to the older version. If the system software comes back up you can then try and update. Rather do a total update search for the whole system software first to see if garage band is picked up. If not go to the site to find the update and try again.

    If all that fails you might be forced into a re-install.

    I'm afraid no short cuts on that one.

When you registered did you lookup your name in a public data base such as ZabaSearch? You might need to add a letter or an initial to your registration name in order to go to the next step.

Can't get activation form for Quark 9 on imac running Lion


Did you migrate Quark from your old computer to your new computer? It probably won't upgrade if it doesn't see the prior version.

Why can't I connect my iMac to my Dlink DIR-615 wireless router?


That is a older wifi access point and maybe the N is not compatible for your imac. I would get a dual band 2.4/5Mhz wifi Access Point.

Inch wide vertical white band on my Imac screen?


If the white band appears right from start up, the display needs to be replaced, if it comes on after it starts, it is most likely a software problem.

Connecting Yamaha piano (YDP-131) to imac g5


You want to go into your AUDIO/MIDI set up in OS X. Selet the unit. YOu have a MAC so most itmes dont needs drivers, its one of the many great things that separate that operating systems from say windows. Also your yamaha may be CLASS COMPLIANT, which means plug and play no matter what computer you are using.

What you should do is make sure the keyboard is set to send on the same channel as garageband is set to receive.

Keep me posted.
