Question about Apple Power Mac G4 Dual Mac Desktop
I loaded a large picture DVD and started having problems today with my MacBook. It would lock up trying to open one of the pics. I was trying to shut the computer down, the little color circle wouldn't stop, so I started pushing buttons. Anyway, now nothing shows up on the desktop--how do I find and restore the folders and files to my desktop? Where could they be? Are they hiding or gone - altogether? Help. Please Ginger i cant access my desktop either. the desktop file is available in finder but no actual files can appear on the desktop. i tried moving the desktop folder from finder to the desktop but it bounces back. i cant get photobooth to open either is says my graphics card is incompatible. !! all my other programs are working fine, but i need to get the desktop back i miss my background and it was the best way of managing my priority files!
Hello, it semms that you have a "permission" issue, or that you are accesing another account on the computer without noticing it. Please repair disk and permissions from the disk utility on your install DVD:
- Insert install DVD
- reboot the mac holding the C key
- choose english
- Go to the utilities menu and choose Disk Utility
- In the disk utility window, SOS tab, select your drive, and hit repair disk and repair permissions
Also check that you are accessing the account that you want and not another one: log out, and log in...
