You haven't indicated if problem continued after restarting computer, so if you haven't already done that, restart it.
If problem still persists then... sounds like you have a corrupt preference file. I would install AppleJack, excellent troubleshooting article can be found here... Troubleshooting Tools: AppleJack Another excellent free tool for performing maintenance is Onyx (be sure to download the right version for your system). Install the package, then run it, it will check your drive and the structure, after this, click on the automation tab and check on everything for Maintenance, Clear Cache, Cleaning, and check on Reset -> LaunchServices database and Mail's Envelope Index. When it completes, restart. Repeat any time something seems flaky, if not try to run at least once a month.

How do i unmute my iMac?


I usually find using a free application called soundsource available at http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11334/soundsource gives you all the available options for input and output options. Once downloaded instal it into your applications folder and open it up, it will appear in your menu bar as a headphone icon. Click on the icon and you will see what options you have. Hope this helps.

My monitor on a macintosh Gf is black since setting the resolution toohigh. What can I type in or do to get the resolution to decrease even though I cannot ee the scren as it is black? Thanks, Rochelle...


You could try resetting the PRAM which resets various things to default status. You do this by holding down the following 4 keys together "cmd" "option" "P" "R" at the startup sound, keep them held down until it restarts and keep holding them down until you hear the startup sound 2 more times and then let go.

If that does not work try booting up in safe mode by holding down the shift key at startup and then when it boots up change the resolution to one that works and then restart.

Hope this helps.

I just installed a new PC on my home network and now Safari on the iMAC has a big question mark on it.


If you mean a (?) in a diamond on the Safari icon in Dock/task bar, then you have a "missing" or broken application. I would recommend reinstalling Safari. That will probably mean using your Time Machine backup, assuming you have one. Without that reinstall the latest copy you have of Safari even if it is on the OS install disk, then run update from the Apple menu until there are no more updates. My copy is at 4.0.5, today. -Ken

Macintosh HD will open from desktop icon but won't stay open. I can access all but applications files using finder but Macintosh HD closes when I click on applications. I recently transferred files from...


Sounds like you may have some permissions issues - I would suggest sticking in the OS disc that came with your iMac, restarting, and holding the "C" key when you hear the chime - this will make it boot off the CD. Once booted from it, go to Tools->Disk Utility, choose your disk, and do "Repair Permissions". Once that is done, you can quit the installer and restart. If that doesn't work, the next step I would recommend is running DiskWarrior, which is $99 - this is like an industrial permissions/hard drive directory repair disc, used by many professionals. If that doesn't solve it, you will likely have to back up your user data and do a fresh install of the OS from the discs you have. Good luck!

Try forcing the computer off by pressing and holding the power button until it shuts down. And then on boot press and hold command+option+p+r until you hear the power up sound three times. then it should be better hopefully

Just Grandma and Me CD I bought I can't run on Mac 10.5.6


Hi, Sorry to hear you are having trouble...
So listen, when a box says Mac System 7.0.1 or higher, it'll probably work on any system up to 8.6 without hitch.... but not much more than that..
I hope you did not pay much for this CD cause it's at least 16 years old.
Unfortunately it won't run on modern machine today. Try contacting the manufacturer to see if they have a newer version of the game.

Computer very slow for all applications


Okay re: 10.5.6. Try these: 1. Restart with Command + Option + letter "P" + letter "R" depressed after the startup "bong". This will zap the PRAM and is the first thing to do. When this finishes allow the machine to restart and see if the problem still exists. If not, go to the next step. 2. Using the application, "Disk Utility" found in the Utilities Folder, choose "Repair Permissions". When this finishes, restart the machine and see if the problem still exists. 3. Using the application, "Activity Monitor" found in the Utilities Folder you will see all opened applications and how much memory they are using. This will tell you which application is hogging the processor. Try forcing it closed which is an option in Activity Monitor and see if the problem goes away . 4. Keep me updated.

Connecting Yamaha piano (YDP-131) to imac g5


You want to go into your AUDIO/MIDI set up in OS X. Selet the unit. YOu have a MAC so most itmes dont needs drivers, its one of the many great things that separate that operating systems from say windows. Also your yamaha may be CLASS COMPLIANT, which means plug and play no matter what computer you are using.

What you should do is make sure the keyboard is set to send on the same channel as garageband is set to receive.

Keep me posted.
