Mac OS computer

I obtained a Mac OS computer from the Salvation Army.  The plug-ins are different from the Cajun 686 I was using.  Where do I plug in the Keyboard and Mouse?  It doesn't say on the back of the computer and there are four different places I could plug them in. I've tried them all and only the start up pictures come on the monitor.  The mouse and keyboard I can't get to work.

Re: Mac OS computer

Can you describe the machine or give a model name.   It may be so ancient, that it will not be worth using.

Re: Mac OS computer

This appears to be a hardware question, not OS, If the computer is not beige, the keyboard and mouse connections are USB.

what is the model?

How do I download pictures from FinePix F10 to my computer?

Hello. In order to extract the pictures from your FinePix F10 to your computer you will need an USB driver, which can be located here:

For Windows XP
For Windows 98
For Windows 2000
For Windows ME
For Windows VISTA
For Mac OS X
For Mac OS 8x

Enter the code shown and then download the file to your computer (desktop for example). Run it and install it properly!

Then, you will be able to extract or put pictures to your FinePix F10. It will appear a new Local Disk on "My Computer". Enter there and copy-paste your pictures/videos in different folders you will be able to view.

I hope I helped!

I have an IMAC computer desktop and purchased it in 07, just the other day, the keyboard would only work selectively, sometimes not typing in letters or numbers at all

Meh, maybe your keyboard's batteries ran out.
Maybe something else is wrong, like the connection.
Have the mimosas you've been sharing with your keyboard had the cheaper brandies in them lately? Time for that AppleCare to come in handy.

I forget username and passowrd in my MAC OS X Version 10.4.11,please findout the solution to restore my username and password.....

Did you lost the administrator password? There is a way to reset it. You will need the install disk in the resetting process. Please make sure you follow the steps accordingly.

From Mac OS knowledgebase:

Resetting the original administrator account password Follow these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset. "Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue, then choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu (or from the Installer menu, if using Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.

    : The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  4. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  5. Enter a new password.
  6. Click Save.

Start up my mac and it keeps giving me a flashing folder with a question mark. have tryed everything. could my harddrive be fried? if so why does the hardware test keep comming back no troubles found?

It may be that the harddrive is not set as the boot device any longer.
Follow these steps:
  1. Turn on, or restart, your Mac.
  2. Immediately press and hold the Option key. After a few seconds, the Startup Manager should appear. The Startup Manager scans for available available volumes.
  3. Use the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard to select the volume you would like to use.
  4. Press the Return key on your keyboard to start up the computer from the volume you selected. Because this change is temporaryyou will need to set the default startup volume for your Mac after your computer is running, open "System Preferences" and choose "Startup Disk" from the "View" menu. (If this does not resolve this issue please messageme again)

Mac laptop keyboard locked

im sorry to tell you that most likely you have gotten some sort of fluid down into the keyboard wich has shortcircuited it.

Why did you wipe it in the first place? did you try to remove something you spilled? or was the cloth you wiped with wet?

Mac too loud

Did Logitech provide any software with the keyboard? Make sure you have the most recent version of any Mac software for this model of keyboard.

It's possible that 10.2.8 may not have all the right hooks in it to fully support a recent model Logitech keyboard. But my Apple-brand keyboard has volume control buttons on it that have worked since time immemorial, so I'd think 10.2.8 understands the basic concept.

I hope it's just a matter of getting the right software.

What model keyboard and Mac do you have?

If your computer rejects the Mac OS X Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.

You might want to try loading the DVD on a second computer that is connected with a fire wire to the first computer.

Good luck.

What is the difference between unix and linux

UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...
