Macbook wont start up after cancelled OSX install

I was downloading Limewire on my Macbook when the trouble all started. When I tried to start the newly installed program, it said my macbook needed a java upgrade. I heard that if you install the Mac OSX cd that apple provides you with the laptop, the java upgrade is all set. So i followed the install cd along until I saw that it would last 2 hours before completion. I cancelled out safely to restart the computer (followed its directions) and now whenever I turn the macbook on it is at the screen with the apple logo and the loading symbol. It never loads. I have tried the CMD OP O + F combo to no avail. When I do CMD S it will bring me to single user mode and I follow the commands. It tells me to check the files, and eventually tells me to reboot. I reboot, still no solution. HELP!

Insert your Mac OS dvd .. and hold down the c key as you restart. it should launch on the dvd's system and allow you to boot. in the menu select Disk Utility and run the program and see if it can restore your hard drive...

It may need to remount the drive...

Let me know if that helps...

Can I load the driver/software for my canon MP210 printer onto my OS Macbook pro?


Yes you can but you'll need to install the Mac OsX driver to make it run through your Macbook Pro. You can download the Mac OSX driver from HERE,(open the link and select O.S i.e. Mac OSX and Language and click "submit", the download links will be displayed) it should also be included in the CD that came with the printer.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello,
You should just need to insert your OSX disk maybe snow leopard, then install bootcamp drivers from it also run apple software update, from the start menu or programs. install the latest free updates and you should be good to go.

Macbook wont run limewire


Depending which version of Limewire you have updated to, and what Mac you have the Mac OS may no longer support the Java it needs to run.
First try updating your mac to the most current version. If that doesn't help you, take lime wire and throw it in your trash.
Look for an older version of Limewire I know 4.18.8 works very well on older Macs.

you can find it here:
http://www.oldapps.com/limewire.php?old_limewire=5?download

this from lime wire:
LimeWire 5 requires Java version 1.6 to run. Both require Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard running on an Intel 64-bit processor. To find out what processor you are using, go to the Apple menu and select "About This Mac". LimeWire 5 will run on Core 2 Duo and Xeon processors, but it will not run on Core Duo or PowerPC processors because Apple has not released an updated Java version for older systems. More information is available on the Apple website:

Lost install disc 1


You may be able to download an OSX operating system, but it will not be free, and if you computer is doing that, then you will not be able to get onto net. You will need to buy it at a mac specialist. If you have another computer try finding it in "limewire" this is a filesharing program, so be careful what you download as there are legal and illegal copies of stuff.
