Question about Computers & Internet

Hallo, I have had Safari installed on my Mac (Tiger OSX) for over a year and used without problems. For the last week Safari will not load. I am using Firefox instead but would like to get the Safari problem fixed. My thought was to delete my current Safari then to re-install. Is this sensible please? Anne

    Did you upgrade Tiger at any point in the last week? What other changes have you made to your system in the last week, if any, that you can recall?

No. You should NOT delete safari. Go to the apple website and download safari and install it OVER your current version of it. This way, all your bookmarks, history, passwords, etc. will be maintained in the new install. If you delete it before installing the new version, this information will be lost. Good luck with it!

Mac osx tiger install disc


You cannot install Mac OS onto a PC without an illegal hack (illegal because the End User License Agreement say the user agrees NOT to install the OS on a non-Mac computer).

Other than that, more information is needed to know how to address your issue.

Did you use a system specific install of Tiger (OS X 10.4)? If so, you need to use the retail version of the OS so it will work across the board with all Macs.

Mac freezes w/skipping audio streaming video


This is a fascinating problem, because there are so many possible culprits... plugins, Quicktime, networking...
Because it only happens on streaming media, because it comes and goes a week at a time, and because you have a satellite connection, my first suspicions fall on your internet service. However, this would be unwieldy to prove. The obvious experiment would be to carry your computer to a friend's place where you could use non-satellite broadband... but you say the problem comes and goes, and I'm assuming there is no single "video from heck" that is always guaranteed to fail, so a failure to fail wouldn't prove very much.
Another good experiment would be for you, during one of your "good weeks," to disconnect your satellite modem's coax cables while you are streaming one of these videos to see if it triggers the same failure at the Mac. (Powering the modem down wouldn't provide the same failure mode.)
Another: Quicktime Player (as well as VLC) has an "open URL" option. If you use that instead of a browser during a "bad week" to view videos, does the failure also occur? (That would rule out the plugins.)
One thing I can advise you: don't bother running disk repair, this problem isn't anywhere near your disk.
I wish I could point a finger and say "your problem is definitely here," but that isn't going to happen with this problem. The best I can do is provide some tests to help you narrow it down.

Just repaired g3 ibook. Hard drive needs formatting, as it has xp loaded on it. Ibook starts up, boot tone, proceeds to load, then screen has a file in the center of screen with the osx finder square face...


With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.


If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.


Hope this helps, let me know what happens.

MAC OS X loading


Booting from the install disk should give you the option to reinstall it. During that process there are settings to delete the contents of the drive to ensure a clean instal. Remember however that this will wipe any personal files from the Mac as well and so back everything important up to external drives.
