Filemaker 9 crashing

Filemaker 9.0 that has been working, without any problems,has begun to crash every time it starts up. This is in a mac G4, 10.4.11 with 2 GB of ram. I loaded a new version & it continues to crash at the same point in its startup.

    Thanks Hawk, I have tossed the application & reinstalled it twice with the disk. The software is registered & payed for. Still fails after attempting to start up. Even after starting up from a disk with a working copy of FM9 it fails at the same point.  
    BTW I was playing with it today & I found that the old filemaker 7 software works fine & opens the newer databases that I have been working on. I was under the impression that that wasn't possible.

Check if you have the appropriate specification to run it; try uninstalling and then reinstalling or running a troubleshooter if you have got the correct specs.

Sometimes software locks up due to not been activated, did you activate the product.

Hope this helps!

Can i repair a problem on my 3000 dimension computer without the disc my computer crashed


Yes normally you can

When you say computer crashed, when you restart it what happens? Does windows start?

Usually you can go to control panel and create a new disc if you lost it.
Or there will be a seperate partition on your hard drive that has the contents of the restore disc.
When the PC boots up at start it should say something like Hit F10 or similar key to restore?

Hope this helps

Computer crashes


This could be one of many different problems. When did this actually start? It could be a problem with the power supply, it could be a problem with the motherboard or cpu, there could be a problem with the actual operating system itself. This is the steps i would recomend
1) Format and Reload your os and drivers etc, if this doesnt work move to step 2
2) Change the power supply to a new one or a computer that works. Borrow one from someone so that you dont have to pay for it only to disconver it isnt the problem
3) Do the same with your expansion cards
4) Do the same with your cpu
5) Do the same with Motherboard
Somewhere down the line you will know what your problem is and that is the part you will have to replace

check the event viewer by going to start>right click my computer>manage ... click on the left pane whre it says even viewer and click on applications.. look for a red ballon with a white x at the time when your application crashed and double click on it (there may be a few of those if it has crashed before.. and not all of them may be about the the application you're troubleshooting.. so read a little bit on the error and see if it's related with your problem and post the information you see there. or google the error code.

My Dell XPS One keeps crashing


First of all, if you've only had the system 6 months, it should be under warranty with Dell. So I'd contact Dell 1st before replacing any hardware on my own. You can chat with Dell tech support here:

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/chat/hardware_chat?c=us&l=en&s=gen

There is a BIOS revision you can download and install:

If you need to replace a RAM module, the instructions are here:
