Layer of Asus U3S notebook screen appears to be frozen

I recently noticed, that there's (what looks like) a speech bubble and it's frozen it's position in the middle of the screen. I can see through it, however the frame is there and won't disappear. I'm not sure but suspecting that bubble's some sort of help info the system showed up. Perhaps it helps to know I'm working on an ASUS 3Us, Window's Vista.

This problem is 10 months old, unpursued, and posted in the wrong category. It's a dead issue.

Hello, since yesterday my macbook pro is frozen, just don't know how to fix it! My macbook pro was frozen with the apple and grey screen, showing timeclock, so this morning i restarted it with the power...

Take the 2 RAM chips out and make sure they are compatible with your computer and make sure the RAM chips are not broke or defective. Re-insert new RAM chips and make sure they are firmly inserted in their bays. Also, install disc 1 of your 2 disc gray set and hold down C key to boot from disc. Then click on tab for install English. Then go to the top of the screen to utilities and click on disk utility. Now on the left side of screen select your hard drive and then at bottom middle of screen select repair disc. Then when that's done select repair hard drive. Now quit the disc and choose restart from hard drive. See if that don't help ya any. Also, could be bad boot sector in which you will have to save all your data and re-install the operating system. If that don't work, then look into getting a new hard drive and then re-install the operating system. Take your computer into the Apple store and have the Apple dorks look into it if your still under warranty, because you just dropped down some serious cash on this machine.

Somehow I've made my fonts too large on my MacBook and can't get them smaller

Go to system preferences, then select appearance, look at the bottom of screen for font smoothing style and select "automatic best for main display." Then look at the bottom of the screen for turn off text smoothing for font sizes and select 9 or higher.

Next go to system preferences again, then select display and select the maximum resolution for your screen. If you don't know it you can look on the retail box or in your manual.

My Mac notebook will not turn on, there is just a blue screen and a loading symbol. thanks

This is a common symptom that usually indicates that an incompatible third-party System Preference was recently installed onto the machine.
Starting from power-off, boot your machine into Safe Mode by pressing the power button, then immediately holding down the Shift key until the login screen (or desktop) appears. This will disable these sorts of extensions until you can review what it was you added recently and deactivate it.
Once logged in, you can use Console to examine the system logs and see where the previous boot was hung up, but interpreting these logs takes some technical chops.
Alternatively, you can boot from power-off while holding Command-V, and see the console report in real time as it gets stuck booting. Again, these take some technical chops to interpret but if you find someone who can do that, it's usually a lot easier because you can see what lines are being displayed at the time of failure rather than tying to figure out what appeared when from after the fact.

Kernal panic alert screen will not respond

Well, if you erase the wrong files, you'll sure get a kernel panic.
To power down your PowerBook when there is a kernel panic on the screen (or any frozen state) you have to hold the power button for 10-15 seconds until the Mac shuts off. Then you can restart it.
If you deleted too many of the wrong files, it may not restart to your satisfaction. :-(

Macbook Screen Error

Does it only show up when the computer is on? There were a few reports of several MacBooks having video card issues that caused this problem. Take it to an Apple store and have a Mac Genius look at it to confirm.

Apple iBook Mac g4 Notebook hd doesn't appear

You have a hard drive issue, this is why it freezes. DO you hear clicking sometimes in the laptop? I would get your hard drive looked at by a tech.

Screen lines on MacBook.

Sounds like dropped pixels.  My first guess is the computer has been dropped on its corner, with the pixel dropout radiating diagonally from the corner.
My saint bernard sat on my g3 lombard, and I have vertical pixel dropout because of it, from the top of the screen to the bottom.
And no, it is not normal for a macbook to have lines across the screen.

Always freeze

Firefox will use a lot of disk space over time for temporary use. You might try starting up and run the Disk Utilities program to repair disk permissions.
