Try en external USB mouse, if that still doesn't solve it, press Ctrl+Alt+Del, go to Processes, look for explorer.exe,click on in and " end process", click on "File", New Task", and type explorer, see if you can move your pointer now!

Why are facebook pages i manage frozen?


Without further details and troubleshooting, it is hard to get to the root cause of the issue! I would start by checking with another browser, e.g. Chrome or Firefox. If it works, you will know it is an incompatibility or lack of plugin, e.g. video. If you have the same issue with any other browser, than you might be looking into a system wide issue and the next step would be to test it in a new admin user account. In the end, even a minor issue like this, might only be solved by re-installing the OS.
All the best,
Alex

have you tried using a restore point? or resetting it to factory settings, although I wouldn't do that until you are left with no other options....You can try to call the company and see if they can walk you thru fixing it.

MacBook won't recognize my Lacie Rugged Hard Disk. Disk utility will see it but won't verify it nor will it repair it. says it needs to be reformatted yet it won't even let me initialize it. it is brand...


Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.

Sorry mate... too many limitations on
