Blank screen


Sounds like your screen went bad.
Close the lid, attach an external monitor, open lid and see if the screen appears on the monitor.

Resetting the PRAM may do the trick also:
You reset the PRAM by rebooting a Mac and then immediately hold down the Command+Option+P+R keys, you will then hear the Mac reboot sound again, signifying your PRAM has been reset. You must hit the key combination before the grey screen appears otherwise it won't work.

Happy New Year,

My powerbook G4 froze with flyspin going.. I shut it down but when I restarted it it went to a blue screen with no activity. Clearly it is not starting up OS X. Any ideas what to do?


Boot it into single-user mode holding down Command(Apple) and S buttons when powering up. Then in terminal console, use chkdsk -fy. Use it and use it again until comes back with something like "Volume appears to be OK". Then use command: mount -uw / and then type reboot and try booting normally.

My screen is blank with a folder in the middle


This is an icon indicating that the iBook G4 cannot locate the bootable Mac OS X volume on the hard drive.

Here is a procedure you can use in order to get back to your main desktop:

----------------------------------------------------------------

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't remove a possible folder(s) that may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

Try these steps:


-SAFE BOOT MODE-
• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain startup items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

If this does not work, it could mean the Mac OS X directory on your iBook G4 may be damaged or corrupted. So the best step you can take to try to correct this without losing any data from your Home Folder(s) is to run an Archive and Install, with your Mac OS X installation disc.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

What this process consists of (using your Mac OS X install disc),is removing the damaged or corrupted Mac OS X directory and replacing it with a brand new directory.

This procedure also allows you to save your applications, files and folders without the old directory no longer in the way of interfering with you accessing those files.

-ARCHIVE AND INSTALL-

• Start up from your Mac OS X Install Disc 1 or Install DVD. Please remember to use the install disc that matches the current operating system your system haves.

Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key.
• Hold the C key until you see a White screen, with a Gray Apple icon and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.

-Your mac will now boot from the disc and load into the Installer environment.

• Select your language. The Welcome to the Mac OS X
Installer window appears.
• Click Continue. The Important Information window appears.
• Follow the prompts until you get to the licensing agreement screen
• An agreement sheet appears. If you agree with
the license agreement, click Agree. Then Select a
Destination window appears.
• Click the volume that you wish to install to (your primary
hard drive).
• Click Options. The installation options sheet appears.
• Select Archive and Install.
• Select the volume which already has Mac OS X installed.
• You should also select Preserve Users and Network
Settings, to preserve network and Home directory
settings.
• Click OK.
• Click Continue to begin the installation.
• Once the Archive and Install is completed, when you reach your desktop be
sure to run all Software updates to bring your new
Mac OS X directory back
up to current.

Also, if you look inside your Macintosh HD icon on your Desktop, look for a folder entitled "Previous System Folder" which will have all of your previous Home folder files prior to the Archive and Install.

Here is the link (below) from Apple for more information about how to locate the Previous System Folder

How to locate Previous System Folder (after Archive and Install)

If you don't have a Mac OS X installation disc, let me know.

Regards,

Re-creating the Fireworks CS4 preferences file restores settings to their defaults. To re-create the Fireworks CS4 preferences file:
  1. Quit Fireworks CS4.
  2. Rename the Users\[username]\Library\Preferences\Adobe Fireworks CS4 Settings\Adobe Fireworks CS4 Prefs folder to Adobe Fireworks CS4 Prefs.old.
  3. Start Fireworks CS4. Fireworks creates a new Adobe Fireworks CS4 Prefs file.

Try replacing the PRAM battery on the motherboard. Radio shack carriers them for about 10 dollars. Start up from CD set clock and choose your hard drive as startup volume and reboot.

Can't get my Mac to fully boot up


your problem is probably on the hard drive. The chime sound is a file and as to be read on the hard drive.
Try this: reboot system with cmd+s hold. Then type fsck -y or fsck -f (too long to explain, one of those will work) .
the computer compute and says:
***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
type your fsck -y or -f again until the computer no longer says
***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
after that, you type reboot, or shut down and power again.
If this does'nt work, change the hard drive (mac shop - expensive)

Fireworks MX won't open


When that happens we say that the software is crashing. Usually you can fix this kind of problem by reinstalling Adobe/Macromedia Studio (Adobe bought Macromedia recently).
If reinstalling macromedia suite did not help, then you will have to reinstall Mac OS.
Normally Macromedia Studio MX is fully compatible with Mac OS X.3.
