Sounds like you may have some sort of Hardware problem. Possibly the Hard Drive may be bad. Go to Disk Utility in Applications >> Utilities >> Disk Utility  Select your HD in top LH corner of Disk Utility then click Verify Disk 
OS X very seldom crashes or freezes unless it has some sort of Hardware issue.

I suspect the monitor. For the sake of troubleshooting: Try another monitor for a few days. If you have the same issue, we will know it is the video card.

How can i unhighlite the text in macbook word 2008


JUST READ THROUGH
Just wondering if anyone else was having issues with Microsoft Word from MS Office 2008, where you open the application, you type a few sentences, and the application freezes with the spinning circle of death that won't go away until you click the dock where it says "application not responding" and do a force-quit? You can leave the circle spinning for 10-20-30 minutes, and it never goes away.

Now for the weird part--this error only happens for me when I'm using a specific document on my computer. I can open Word, start a new document, type several paragraphs of text, and it works fine. But I've been working on an existing paper for about two months that all of a sudden started causing these freezes/crashes when editing it. It's about 30 pages roughly, no images, no big inserts that would take up a lot of memory (116 kb in size). And up until today, there were no problems. So why all of a sudden can't I edit anything on this paper without freezing the program?! I downloaded the Microsoft Office 2008 Service Pack 1 that was just released after this problem started, and ran all the recent Java and program updates through Software Update with computer restarts. I even copied the text from the Word document I was working on, pasted it into a new document, tried saving it as both .doc and .docx, and again the program still freezes when working with that text in a new file. This one baffles me. It's like the text within a document is somehow freezing the application. One thing I did notice is that the freezes seem to happen when I'm scrolling using a mouse wheel. Not always, but quite a bit. I suppose this is some memory issue related to several pages of text that the program can't render or process when you add new lines of text or scroll, but again, I can't figure why this paper I've been working on for months all of a sudden decided to start freezing Word today. Can you really only have 30 double-spaced pages of text in Word before it crashes?

Looks like I've found my reason to switch to Open Office, since I'm 3-4 days out from a

I have an E series lifebook. The laptop just got wiped clean because it had a bad virus. I took it to a professional tech and he did the work and also updated windows. the computer was working fine prior...


You can turn Sleep and Hibernate off in Windows but this sounds like it might be your Bios putting the system to sleep. In windows go to power options and turn sleep and Hibernation off but double check your Bios as well for a possible setting there that will put the computer in sleep or Hibernate mode.

Monitor works fine until the sleep mode and then it goes blank. I have to unplug the power button and it does work again


It seems it is a motherboard battery problem. It most likely is not the monitor which is in "sleep mode", it is the computer itself.

When you cannot get a computer out of "sleep mode" by any other means, typically the cause is that the button-cell-type battery of your computer, which is located on the motherboard, is empty. When your computer detects this battery is empty, it goes into a low-power mode. The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer
If this solution works fine for you please rate this

I cannot connect to YouTube,safari crashes and i have no sound. Everything was ok a few days ago. My iphone is new 2 weeks. I feel like screaming pls help


Hello belito33,

Try this first:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (on top of the iphone) button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. The phone will turn off. Then, push and hold it again, until the phone comes back on.

If that doesn't work, try this:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. This will do a "hard reset" and should bring your iphone back to life!

If these solutions don't work for you, take your phone back, you have 30 days to return it for a brand new phone.

Best regards,
Bill

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc


If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.
