Do you have any devices plugged in, such as an external drive or an iPod? If so, remove them and try again. If this dosnt help then try rebooting in safe mode Try restarting in Safe Mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1455
If it still fails to boot up then have a look at this: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1365

I cannot open iPhoto on my MacBook, missing python framework. Will allow remote access using TeamViewer for help.


It looks like your version of iPhoto may not be compatible with OSX 10.9.5.

Can you check which version of iPhoto you have installed... go to Applications, select the iPhoto icon, press the "command" and "i" key at the same time, and see what it says under 'version'...

I would suggest launching the App Store application and checking for any updates, especially anything to do with iPhoto.

If you've updated iPhoto but the library is an older version, then this may help:

Mac tells me to shutdown by pressing the power button and the screen freezes


Your MacBook is over heating. You need to put some cooling paste to replace the old dried up paste that is on the processor and video card before it burns out the logic board. Clean out the fan while your doing this also.

Have a macbook pro and it has locked up, black screen now and isn't responding to mouse or keyboard


This has also happened to my Macbook Pro - nothing would work, so i basically pressed the power button until it closed down and waited a few minutes and turned it back on. The problem ( touch wood) did not come back again yet. Good luck!

The screen on my macbook pro keeps turning off instantaniously. The laptop its self is still on, though the screen just goes black.


I think your macbook is running on power save mode. This will turn your screen black (off) after few minutes of no interaction with the computer or if your PC is on idle.

Macbook turning on difficulties.


Try these steps:

1.) With the machine OFF, hold down a SHIFT key and power the machine on. Continue holding SHIFT for about a minute. This is called Safe Mode. This will test your disk, clear caches, and disable extensions. It probably will take longer to load.

2.) If your Mac boots all the way to the Desktop normally, click the Apple menu (top, left corner of screen) and click "Shut Down".

3.) Once it has shut down, wait a few seconds and power it back on (NO SHIFT key this time).

4.) If it boots, it should be okay. If not, you may have to reinstall your operating system.

To Reinstall Mac OS X: WARNING: There is a _slight_ risk of loss of your data (pictures, documents, etc.) when reinstalling your operating system.

1.) You'll need the system disc(s) that came with your Mac. Put disc 1 (if there are more than one) into the drive. Hold down the power button to turn the machine off if necessary. Put the disc in and turn it on *while holding down the C key* (to boot from "CD" -- actually DVD). Look for an "Options" button, depending on which version of Mac OS X you have. Click it. Select "Archive and Install" and follow the prompts. (If you have 10.6 "Snow Leopard", you won't find an "Options" button. It will "Archive and Install" automatically.

2.) Once you have reinstalled the operating system, it should start normally.

Good Luck! Please let us know if you continue to have problems.

Try pulling the battery out then holding the power button for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in.

MacBook Screen Problem


Hi there
If I understand you correctly from start up the screen is dim but does brighten up after time? But now after start up you are getting a flicker how ever a restart solves this.

On the dimming issue. Check your energy saving settings and brightness key is working OK.

The flickering is a bit of a concern.

Just a couple of questions.
Are there any dead spots on the screen? Areas where there are no pixels.
When you tilt the screen forward and backward, does this effect the brightness or flickering?

Mac OS X 10.5 Screen saver issue


Go back and check the ENERGY SAVER preference in SYSTEM PREFERENCES, there's a selectable option for both Battery and Power adapter. Your computer is smarter than you think, just dig around.
