Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc. insert the Mac OS X install disc. press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

    Sorry, wrong post.

    Make sure that your webcam is not being used by any other application. Go to your Application folder > Utilities > Activity Monitor.

    Click on the drop down menu to show "All Processes" look for any Appliction that might be using the isight webcam. click to highlight the process and click the big red quit process button at the top.

I have a macbook white 4.1. and I am trying to replace memorynya (2x512mb) with a memory only 1 slot with capacity of 2 GB. But after that, my macbook is always an error / stop the process


Unfortunately, you cannot replace just one of the memory DIMMs. You must replace both existing DIMMs with the same upgrade memory DIMM. Also, be sure that your Macbook will be able to support the 2GB DIMMs. It may not.

I just bought my new macbook air today, and suddenly after playing with the text to speech to iTunes- the sound stopped altogether, i get nothing. I just bought this a few hours ago! what do I do?


Open System Preferences, and click on the Sound icon. Under the Output tab, make sure "Internal Speakers" is highlighted, and the "Output volume" slider is not all the way to the left.
If that is the case, take it to the Apple Store and have a technician look at it. Since you only got it a few hours ago, they'll fix any issues free of charge. (It's under warranty for a year)

when your keyboard and touchpad are not working, try to connect an usb mouse and keyboard to the laptop, just to be sure the system is responding.
if the usb devices work, you can be pretty sure there is an hardware problem. if the usb devices don't work too, maybe the system got stuck, and the best thing to do is a system reset

if the usb devices work, give a try to the apple hardware test to see if it detects anything.

My macbook air does not play any sound anylonger, it suddenly stop working and a circle with a line inside appears when I try to increase or decrese the volume...?


You laptop may have sound prefs set to external speakers, or if there is a red light coming from the headphone jack. the mac thinks the headphones are still there.
Plug in and unplug the headphones an see if the red light goes out. may take a couple of times. Be gentle

MacBook won't recognize my Lacie Rugged Hard Disk. Disk utility will see it but won't verify it nor will it repair it. says it needs to be reformatted yet it won't even let me initialize it. it is brand...


Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.
