Carefully check all the wires to be properly seated in to their respective connectors. Make sure you did not cross any connections by accident.

If the above fails and the warranty is finished on the computer, you can take the chance to open it yourself and see if there are any connectors that become loose.

If all the above fails, you will have to bring the computer to the MAC dealer for service.

I have a Mac desktop. I was looking at photos from a disk. I cannot get the disk out because one of the pics is locked on my screen. When I click on the red dot I get a multi colored circle in stea


If your mac is completely locked up and only if it doesn't respond to any keyboard commands, then as a last resort, hold down the power button until the computer powers down.

Now, turn the Mac back on by pressing the power button. After you hear the startup chime, hold down the mouse button. This will tell the computer to eject the disc from the CDs drive. The computer should then start up normally.

Please write back if this suggestion worked. Good luck.

Bretford iPad Cart Static Electricity problem


This was straight from a Bretford tech:

There are no capacitors or anything that can hold a charge on the cart itself. The only thing that we've been able to come up with thus far is that dry air in the schools may help generating static electricity. Common precautions would be 1. make sure the ground plug is still on the cord. (This can get broken off if the cart is moved with the cord still plugged into the wall.) Plugging the ground cord in won't help however if the person has to grab the door handle to open the door to get to the wall outlet. 2. If the air is dry (ie: people get shocks even without the cart or the problem goes away in the spring when the humidity goes up), gently push the metal of the cart handle against the door frame prior to reaching for the door handle. This will discharge any static electricity that was built up as the person walked with the cart safely to the door jamb prior to the person reaching for the door handle.

Stuck dvd tray


There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.

Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
Push the power button
Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)

Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try.
Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"

You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd"
If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.

Mac Mini G4 turns itself ON


Have you looked into System Preferences>energy saver>schedule? Maybe it's set up to start itself. I have my mother's mac set to start up and shut down automatically. Just a thought.

What program are you using? The answer may be different if you are using a Microsoft product, vs an Apple product, on your Mac.

Have you tried shutting down and restarting your Mac?
