Try going into Utilities folder and open Disk Utility and repair disk permissions. That fixes a number of bizarre issues in Mac.

New application quites upon launch on macbook OS 10.6


Welcome.

First of all, make sure that the application meets the system requirements.

Restart the computer by choosing Apple Menu - Restart. Also you can try to Restart in Safe Mode.

To Restart in Safe Mode:
  1. Shut down your computer and wait 10 seconds.

  2. Press the power button.

  3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold down the Shift key.

    You should press the Shift key as soon as possible after you hear the startup tone, but not before.

  4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple logo and progress indicator (spinning gear).

Hope this helps!

You probably need an OS-Reinstall. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll do it for you. If they don't there are third party Macbook Repair services that can fix it for you. There are also free Macbook Repair guide that show you how to restore it yourself. You should still have your install CDs to do the restore.

Pressing and holding the power button will shut down your computer. Then you can restart it. You can also tell the computer to restart with the restart command but that does not alway work depending on the problem.

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.

Can't eject Install CD Mac OSX Panther


Hi GInette, sorry to hear you are having problems,
here is how you eject a disk that is stuck in the optical drive of a Mac.
Shut down the Mac.
press the power on button
VERY QUICKLY, press the mouse button, the trackpad button and hold it down firmly until the disk ejects.
This is a built-in hardware command independent of your system and always works when doe right, unless the optical drive is no longer recognized by the Mac or if something is inhibiting it's ejection.
Good luck

M-audio firewire solo


I just bought the Firewire Solo and had the same issue with my MacBook. I have OSX 10.5.6. The drivers that came on the CD were for earlier OSX version. If you go to M-Audio's website (www.m-audio.com) and then click on Support. Go to to drivers & updates, search by the criteria they give you for your specific system and then download. Although they don't currently have an updated version for 10.5.6, I downloaded 10.5.5 and it seems to be working, although I'm running into an audio input problem when hooking up mic and guitar....no sound. I'm thinking I'll just have to wait until M-Audio comes out for an updated version for 10.5.6. Hope this helps.
