Go to apple.com and find the update and redownload. Try not to get the combo updater, get the specific one for PowerPc or intel whichever you have.

My Facebook PAGES will not work properly? Everything else does on facebook? Im on an old Imac, no updates are outstanding?


Hi Danielle

No Updates outstanding does not mean that it's up to date.
It means there are no more Updates to that particular OSX version. Eg osx10.5.8 You can Often move up to the next OSX 10.6 or osx 10.7 or OSX10.9 Maverics...which is free.

The new OSX will install not only a now OS but New Browser and many other enhancements that you are currently going without

You do have to do a full backup (Use Carbon Copy Cloner - for Bootable clone) to another clean external hard drive. Then you use your new Downloaded mavericks OSX10.9.DMG file to install a clean updated OS.
Get a free copy of MacTracker to look up your Mac model and determine if it can go as far as Maverics & Memory required.
But even if you can only go to the Next version up then you are still in front. I keep a copy of all versions but I'm not sure how or where you could get them. They are large files.

If all else fails... find someone in your area. (I'm in OZ)

Updated OSX now computer will not turn on


The 'Progress' bar tells you that the install has not been successful. You need to start up from the recovery partition and re-install Mavericks.

Operating System Requirements


No Problem
Always do a full backup before updating your Mac OSX. Use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable "Clone" of your current Hard Disk. Once the clone is done... Boot from the clone. (Hold Option Key down at Startup and choose external HardDrive with new clone OSX)
Verify that this clone Boots & has all of your current data.
Use the "Mac Tracker" App on the Mac or iPhone to see what the maximum OSX system your model can handle. (Makes no sense in installing just OSX10.5 if you can go to say OSX10.7
Download a copy of the MacOSX 10.5.8 installer DVD (Saved as a .DMG file here Fenopy.se (Search for OSX 10.5). OR OSX10.9 (free download) if your Mac can run on this latest OSX.
Burn your OSX Install software to DVD. Use Disk Utility with your .DMG (Disk Image) File and select the .dmg from the LH Side menu to burn to DVD.
Once burned, try booting from the DVD. If that works OK then you are ready to go. BUT not quite yet.
You really don't want to install a new clean system over top of your existing system. This would be like a Band Aid Fix.
(This is where you must have your current existing system cloned to an external hard drive. Just like i mentioned above.)
Because, now you will start up or "boot" your computer from the DVD installer disk you just made. You will find the Disk Utility tool in the top menu. Use this to FORMAT your internal Hard Drive. (Dont Have your External Drives connected at this time... for safety.)
Choose ERASE or Partition and Select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as the format type.
This process only takes a few minutes. If you have more time you can select the Security Option (choose fastest or single pass) then hit erase button. The security option in this case is only used to write "ones" to every sector on the disk thereby thoroughly testing the drive. This happens to be the ideal time to make sure you have a good flawless internal hard drive. Peace of Mind for older Macs.
Once completed, your drive is totally empty, you have lost everything unless you have made a "clone" beforehand.
Now you can run the installer and leave that process to complete for half an hour or so.
When installer has finished the Mac should reboot itself (you will hear install Jingle), with the new clean OSX installed. You can then manually answer all the questions if you want and give it your Network passwords etc. OR You can select Migration Assistant and migrate all your previous files & settings automatically from that external drive "clone" you made earlier.
You should now have almost a brand new clean Mac to install your new scanner software on.
Also... if you only installed say OSX10.5.0 then you will have updates to download on line, then install, to bring your Mac up to 10.5.8
I run this process on my Mac's at least once a year so that I always have a clean OSX with defragged hard drive so I can work reliably for the next few months. If not... I still have my "Clone" to boot from.
By the way Apple's latest systems since 10.7 (I Think) have an emergency boot partition automatically installed by the installer software. You just re boot & hold the OPTION KEY down and you are given the choice of booting from this bare minimum emergency system. It is heavily limited as to it's functionality but Disk Utility is there to look for problems.)
Good Luck

There really isn't software that you need to burn DVDs or CDs with Windows. Use Windows Media Center to burn your CDs or DVDs.
Here are some burning software links below or you can google search for some.

Computer freezes at grey screen


  1. Start from your Mac OS X Install disc: Insert the installation disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
  2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
  3. Click the First Aid tab.
  4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
  5. Select your Mac OS X volume.
  6. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.

I can't have safari


Its simple, just download it off the apple website,
http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
since you on leopard "1.5.2" you may need to run a system update because you should have been updated to 1.5.7 by now
so if safari still does not work that is why, you need to run a system update.
Here is a little guide on how to do that http://www.switchtoamac.com/guides/mac-os-x/software-update/manually-run-software-update-on-mac-os-x-leopard.html
One thing though if your new to mac's the apple menu is the apple icon in the top right corner :D

Can't install mac osx 10.5.7 combo update on 10.5.2


The 10.5.7 update sometimes does several automatic restarts - depending on the mac and the previously installed OS version.
In my opinion the 10.5.7 update has been the strangest I have done.
Try this.
Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. The MacBook should now be off - but it may restart automatically while flashing the sleep light at you - and make a long beep noise. Don't worry if that happens just let it do whatever it does. Watch the screen and follow any prompts that come up.
If the MacBook did not turn itself back on, hold the power button down again for about 10 seconds. What happens now?
Don't press any other buttons unless the computer tells you to.
If however, you end up with another 3 hour wait then something is definitely wrong and you need to take it in to a specialist.
