Try checking your disk / disk permissions (note:to verify disk you must start from the os x cd at the top of the screen click utilities -> disk utility->repair disk)in the finder window after login you can press command N (apple key and N key at the same time) open the applications folder and find the utilities folder open utilities folder and double click 'Disk Utility' select the disk you wish to repair from the list on the left and click repair disk permissions (note you should back up important files before performing any disk repair utilities) also if you cannot log into the finder you can simply insert the os x disk and hold the C key down after the first boot chime this will start from the cd drive (which may take a little while)

This is a pretty unusual problem but it should be easy enough to fix. If you're getting the login screen after logging in and it keeps doing the same thing without any prompt from you, there's a problem with the login kernel of the OS itself.

I'd recommend booting to the install DVD (Mac OS X Install DVD) - do this by inserting it and restarting by holding down the 'C' key until you see the Apple logo and spinning gear.

After choosing your language, on the next screen go to the Utilities menu in the upper left, choose Disk Utility, choose 'Mac HD' on the left and click 'Repair Disk.' There will also be 'Repair Disk Permission,' IGNORE IT.

Ostensibly it should find and repair the problem. To restart, go to Mac OS X Installer > Quit Mac OS X Installer and choose restart.

If the problem persists, boot to the install DVD again and reinstall - it will not mess with any of your documents, movies, music, or other personal documents. Basically just keep hitting next/agree/continue until it says it is installing, which will take 30-45 minutes.

Good luck!

Macbook screen goes black after I log in.


Since the screen does turn on at the login page, I would say that it doesn't seem as though anything is physically wrong with your computer. It sounds to me like it's a software issue. Either get someone to try and reinstall your video drivers or to back-up your documents, files, etc., format the hard drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of Mac OS.

My screen shows 4 desktops at the same time. If I reset the PRAM it goes to 1 desktop, until it boots to the desktop and then it goes back to 4. See a shot here:...


That looks like Spaces is at work here.
It allows you to have more than one terminal so you can organize and distribute your desktop. I use at least 8 Spaces terminal windows myself.

To disable spaces here is what you need to do:
*Click on Apple menu icon located in upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences.

* From within System Preferences, Chose Expose and Spaces. Your view will automatically default to the Spaces side.
* On the left side of this window, you will see a check box entitled "Enable Spaces" - just uncheck that box
and that should prevent Spaces from appearing when you boot up again.

* Also, click the Show All button and go to Accounts.
• Click the "Login items" tab to make sure Spaces is not one of the login items as well.

You should have no further issues with Spaces disabled.

**To learn all about how to work with Spaces, here is a great link from Apple:
