I suddenly have a fuzzy black blob that shows on my screen in all my pictures help... Tsking the battery did NOT help.


The LCD screen has been damaged, either by a sharp blow or by continuous pressure. You do have a screen protector fitted, don't you ?
If it does not impinge on the saved images, just treat it as a minor nuisance and ignore it.

Mac book pro. Black screen cannot start but with boot sound


Have you tried connecting an external monitor.

A boot chime means the Mac has passed POST, that the screen remains black initially suggests there is a problem getting image to screen which could mean a bad cable to the LCD or the LCD display its self is having problems.

By connecting to an external display you verify the graphics on the logic board is functional, and it could get you up and running till the display problem is fixed.

Also try powering up and when you hear the chime, hold down the COMMAND+OPTION+P+R keys, and keep holding them till the machine has chimed 3 times, this will reset the 'BIOS' in case there is a glitch there stopping the display from showing up.

Mac desktop silver screen


Are there any logos or icons on the screen? If it only ever displays a gray screen, it means there could be a serious hardware issue. If you have the original disk for the Mac you can hold down the letter "C" and then power on the computer. You can also try holding the "Option" key while booting to see if there is a "Recovery" partition as a bootable choice. It could get quite involved at this point, so you may want to take it in for service.

Whats wrong with my apple computer has a blank white screen with a ? and it also had a blue screen the other day not working please help


A question mark on the boot screen is an indication that the machine can't find your boot drive. Usually this is trivially fixed by resetting the PRAM (holding down command-option-P-R after turning on the machine with the power button, until you hear the chime three times).
However, taken in conjunction with your other symptom, I would suspect a failing drive or a failing SATA channel (less probable). Does it boot from the original DVD without these symptoms? After booting from the DVD, are there any indications from the tools that the hard drive may not be showing as present, or may show intermittently?
If you have a good backup (Time Machine or otherwise), I would erase and reformat the disk with "write zeroes to all records one time," then reload the backup, and see if that fixes the problem. If not, you will need to replace the drive, and reload the backup (hope you have one) onto the new drive.

When you turn the comuter on, it just shows the


--SAFE BOOT MODE--

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't remove a possible folder(s) that may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

Try these steps:

• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.

• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.

• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain start up items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X StartupItems.

• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

This should help get your iMac G4 back up
and running.

Regards,

My old mac duo won't boot up. why?


That's old. Besides the main battery, there is likely a silver oxide disk (newer) or 1/2 AA battery (older) for the PRAM and is needed for startup, IIRC. If the battery does not have the full 1.5 or 3.0V, your machine will not work. Another sign of a bad backup battery is that the clock forgets the time when unplugged. -Ken
