Question about Apple MacBook Air

Cursor skips back into sentece or paragraph

When typing on the MacAir suddenly the cursor will skip back in the sentence or paragraph. It seems like I am accidentally hitting some key combination with my right hand resting wrong or a combo of touching the key pad and a key?

Hello,
Usually it is just from your hand/thumb touching the touchpad and registering as a single-click causing the cursor to jump back. This is a well known issue with the MacAir due to size/design of the machine and the sensitivity of the trackpad. Many people have found it to be resolved by turning off the "touch to tap" feature, however it is annoying when you need that. Hope this helps you! Happy Hollidays!

How can i unhighlite the text in macbook word 2008


JUST READ THROUGH
Just wondering if anyone else was having issues with Microsoft Word from MS Office 2008, where you open the application, you type a few sentences, and the application freezes with the spinning circle of death that won't go away until you click the dock where it says "application not responding" and do a force-quit? You can leave the circle spinning for 10-20-30 minutes, and it never goes away.

Now for the weird part--this error only happens for me when I'm using a specific document on my computer. I can open Word, start a new document, type several paragraphs of text, and it works fine. But I've been working on an existing paper for about two months that all of a sudden started causing these freezes/crashes when editing it. It's about 30 pages roughly, no images, no big inserts that would take up a lot of memory (116 kb in size). And up until today, there were no problems. So why all of a sudden can't I edit anything on this paper without freezing the program?! I downloaded the Microsoft Office 2008 Service Pack 1 that was just released after this problem started, and ran all the recent Java and program updates through Software Update with computer restarts. I even copied the text from the Word document I was working on, pasted it into a new document, tried saving it as both .doc and .docx, and again the program still freezes when working with that text in a new file. This one baffles me. It's like the text within a document is somehow freezing the application. One thing I did notice is that the freezes seem to happen when I'm scrolling using a mouse wheel. Not always, but quite a bit. I suppose this is some memory issue related to several pages of text that the program can't render or process when you add new lines of text or scroll, but again, I can't figure why this paper I've been working on for months all of a sudden decided to start freezing Word today. Can you really only have 30 double-spaced pages of text in Word before it crashes?

Looks like I've found my reason to switch to Open Office, since I'm 3-4 days out from a

My macbook. 2.16 GHz intel core 2 duo, os x 10.6.2 is giving me sounds problems. ONLY when there are speakers plugged in or headphones plugged in does the sound skip. it doesn't skip if simply play it...


This sounds like a problem with your accessories than a problem with your Mac. Did you try using a different pair of speakers or headphones? The jack could also be loose.

DVD player skips audio and/or frames


PowerBook G4 is at least a five-year-old machine at this point. A DVD drive can **** in lots of dust in five years. Try hooking up to an external DVD drive. If it plays the same discs with no problem, you need a cleaning or replacement. Frankly, an external DVD drive is cheaper than replacing your internal drive.

IDVD: Problems with burned DVD.


Try a different brand of blank DVD.
If that doesn't work any better, and your MacBook Pro is in fact "brand new," bring it to the Apple Store, because you have warranty redress.
