You will probably need to reinstall OS X. The simple way is to pop in the disc and boot while holding C on the keyboard. You did delete system files, so why would you expect it to start? There's a chance that you can reinstall OS X without destroying all your information. Just make sure you chose correctly when you start the process.

First though, you might just try repairing the disk. Try using THIS SITE to do so. It should walk you through it.

How to download and install programs on macbook


The easiest way to download and install programs is using the App Store. Sign in with your Apple ID or create one if you haven't already and download or buy any app you want. If you don't have the App Store installed on your MacBook then you probably have an older version of the operating system. In this case browse to a website containing an app you wish to download, follow the instructions on the website to download it and then open the downloaded file (it is usually in the 'Downloads' folder). Once you open the downloaded file you are either going to get an installation window or a window with the downloaded app inside. If you get the installation window, just follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation. If you get the window with the app inside, then just drag the app from that window to whatever folder you wish to save it to (usually the 'Applications' folder). Once that's done, locate your app and open it.

How to completely remove a program from a Mac!


All of us who use macs sometimes, or occasionally can't get that program off our computer!
Well now you can!
Step 1- Go on Finder Step 2- Click on "Applications" Step 3- Find that pesky program! Step 4- Drag it to the trash can. Step 5- Empty the trash can & Voila'.
However, again, sometimes, we face that very program that just won't leave! No matter how much we try! After reviewing & testing many macintosh programs for 2 1/2 weeks, I found the perfect & free program called 'Trash It!'
Its a simple program, all there is to it is plainly downloading it.Once its done, you're ready to delete anything you want with a simple click & adding your password!

Wen i download a file and then try to open the file it just keeps sayin this program cant be run in dos mode how do i fix it


Does the file end in .exe?
It sounds like you have downloaded a Windows executable to a Macintosh system, and when you click on it it opens in the text editor, which displays the binary contents of the program, which usually contains the message "This program cannot be run in DOS mode."
Windows executables cannot be run on Macintosh computers unless you have also installed Windows, either under Boot Camp or under a virtual machine monitor such as Parallels or Fusion.

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,

You can use finder, but I would try Spotlight. Basically click the magnifying glass in the upper right part of your screen and search the name of the file. It will list all documents and programs that have that name. then open the containing folder and cut and paste to stick.

Nothing will open


Try this:
  1. Open "Macintosh HD"
  2. Then "Applications"
  3. And try to open the programs from there, if it works replace the shortcuts on Dock with new ones from that folder.

Can't get photos from MAC to load to Digital Photo Frame




To connect to a Macintosh computer: 
1 Plug in and turn on the digital picture frame. 


2 Connect the small end of the usb cable to the usb port on the side of the digital picture frame. 


3 Connect the larger end of the usb cable to a USB port on your Macintosh computer. The Macintosh will recognize the digital picture frame as an external storage device, and an icon will appear representing the device.


4 Drag and drop your photos on to the icon...


5. After you finish, press the eject button, and disconnect the usb cable once the icon has dissappeared


If there is still a problem, try restarting the macbook. and make sure no other programs are running in the background that may interfere with the process. Also, make sure the laptop is plugged in, or the battery power is sufficient.


Hope this helps!
Let me know!

You need to run the disk utility program to repair disk permissions. It is in the applications folder, in utilities, first aid. If the iBook won't let you run that program, you will need to boot from the Tiger CD and run the disk utility from there.

The final revision of Tiger is 10.4.11. Once you have your system in order you will want to check for Apple updates. This can be found under the apple menu at the top of your screen or in system preferences.

Computer turn-on problem


dot.gif

dot.gif POST troubleshooting steps. Question: Post troubleshooting steps.
Additional information: This document is intended to help users who are experiencing issues with the POST and may have any of the below symptoms.
  1. Computer beeps irregularly when the computer is turned on.
  2. Computer turns on but does not boot.
Note: Not all computers have beep codes, some of the newer computers have LED's that light up that indicate the error or have a sound file to indicate the error.
Cause: This issue can be caused by any of the below situations.
  1. New hardware conflicting with old hardware.
  2. Bad or failing hardware device.
  3. Connections not connected or connected properly.
  4. Recent electrical storm that caused a surge that damaged computer.
  5. Other hardware issue.
Answer: Warning: Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards. Information about ESD and proper grounding techniques are found on our ESD help page. Note: Make sure your computer is turning on, if you press the power button and nothing happens (no lights, no sound, no fans, etc.) then this issue is not a NO POST but is an power related issue see document CH000312. Remove new hardware If any new hardware has been recently added to the computer, remove that hardware to make sure it is not the cause of your issue. If after removing the new hardware your computer works it's likely the computer is either not compatible with the new hardware or a system setting needs to be changed to work with the new hardware device.
Disconnect external devices Remove everything from the back of the computer except the power cable. Turn on the computer and see if it beeps normally. If the computer has never beeped keep the monitor or display connected to see if any change occurs.
Identify beep code If you are receiving a sequence of beeps see our beep code page for a listing of different beep codes and their explanation and/or your motherboard or computer documentation. These beep codes are meant as a method of quickly identifying what computer component is failing or bad.
Check all fans Make sure all fans are running in the computer. If a fan has failed (especially the heat sink fan for the CPU) your computer could be overheating and/or detecting the fan failure causing the computer not to boot.
Check all cables Verify that all the cables are properly connected at that there are no loose cables by firmly pressing in each cable.
  • All disk drives should have a data cable and power cable connected to them.
  • Your power supply should have at least one cable going to the motherboard. Many motherboards may also have additional cables connected to them to supply power to the fans.
Disconnect all expansion cards If the above recommendations still have not resolved the irregular POST attempt to disconnect the Riser board (if applicable) and/or each of the expansion cards. If this resolves the issue or allows the computer to post connect one card at a time until you determine which card is causing the issue.
Disconnect all drives If you were unable to determine by the beep code what is failing or do not have a beep code disconnect the IDE, SATA, SCSI, or other data cables from the CD-ROM, hard drive, and floppy drive from the Motherboard.
If this resolves your irregular post or you now get an error message attempt to re-connect each device one at a time to determine which device and or cable is causing the issue. In some situations it can also be simply a loose cable connection that causes the issue.
Remove the RAM If you continue to to receive the same problem with all the above hardware removed attempt to disconnect the RAM from the Motherboard and turn on the computer. If the computer has a different beep code or if your computer was not beeping and is now beeping turn off your computer and try the below suggestions. Making sure to turn off the computer each time you're adding and removing the memory and then turning the computer back on to see if the suggestion resolves the issue.
  1. Re-insert the memory into the same slot.
  2. If you have more than one stick of memory remove all but one stick of memory, try rotating through each stick.
  3. Try one stick of memory in each slot.
If you're able to get the computer to boot with one or more of the sticks of memory it's likely you're dealing with some bad memory. Try to identify which stick of memory is bad and replace it.
If you're able to get memory to work in one slot but not another slot. You're motherboard is defective you can either workaround the issue by running the memory in a different slot or replace the motherboard.
Power cycle the computer In some situations a computer may have power related issues often caused by either the power supply and/or the motherboard. To help determine if this is the cause of your issue try turning the computer on, off, and back on as fast as possible, making sure the computer power light goes on and off each time. In some situations you may be able to temporarily get the computer to boot.
This should only be used as a temporary workaround if you're able to get this to work. Often this is good for users who may have not done a backup and need to get the computer up one more time to copy files before starting to replace hardware.
Disconnect and reconnect the CPU For users who are more comfortable working with the inside of their computer or who have built their computer one last recommendation before assuming hardware is bad is to reseat the CPU by removing it and putting it back into the computer.
Bad motherboard, CPU, RAM, and/or power supply If after doing all of the above recommendations you continue to have the same issue unfortunately it is likely that you have bad Motherboard, CPU, and or RAM. The next step would be either to replace these components and/or have the computer serviced. If you plan on doing the repairs yourself or you are a repair shop it is suggested that you replace the Motherboard first, RAM, CPU, and then power supply in that order and/or try swappable parts from other computers.
