How do you reset an apple macbook laptop


Don't worry just follow the below steps and you will be able to fix your problem
1
Back up your information to an external medium such as an external hard drive or a flash drive. The install process allows you to transfer current files to a fresh operating system (OS) install, but it is always best to be prepared with a backup of your files in case something goes wrong.

2
Insert the first install CD or DVD of the operating system software.

3
Restart your Mac Book or Mac Book Pro. Immediately hold down the "C" key as the computer reboots. This will cause your Mac Book to boot from the CD or DVD you inserted.

4
See the "Welcome" dialog that asks you to pick a language. It may also ask you to agree to the terms and conditions of the software install. Depending upon which OS version you are using, you might see the software perform several checks on your system. If you do not see this, do not worry.

5
Choose where to install the OS. You're most likely going to select your primary hard drive. If you have one or more partitions on your hard drive, you can select any of them as long as they are large enough.

6
Choose your install. You'll be presented with three options: "Upgrade," "Archive and Install," and "Erase and Install."
Choose "Update" to simply update the current OS install on your Mac Book. All your data, files and programs will remain intact.
Choose "Archive and Install" if you need to back up all the data on your system and import it into a fresh install of the software. You will need to reinstall much of your non-Apple software if you choose this option.
Pick "Erase and Install" if you want to erase everything on your hard drive and install a fresh version of the OS. None of your data will remain if you pick this option. This is effectively a factory reset of your Mac Book, as none of your personal settings or data will remain.

7
Choose the right setting. If you choose "Archive and Install," be sure to check the box to preserve your user and network settings. This will ensure your previous profile data is installed in the new software installation. Once you've chosen an option, select it. Click "OK."

8
Relax. The Apple OS install will take care of everything from this point. You may be prompted along the way with a few questions, but the install should be mostly automatic. When the install is complete, your Mac Book will restart.

9
Restore your data. If you chose "Upgrade" or "Archive and Install," the software will prompt you to migrate your old data to the new system. Follow the instructions to ensure your old settings and programs are transferred to the fresh install of the software.

Thanks.
Have a great day

Connecting my Lexmark X2470 to macbook pro


Hi I'm sorry to say that no Mac o/s drivers exist for your printer according to Lexmark's own site and also according to Mac Forums.
I will keep an eye out but I suggest that you appeal to Lexmark to supply you with the relevant drivers.
Sorry for the lack of support currently available to you.

I have a power book running Mac OS x 10.4.11. I have and Epson CX4200. I have the disk to install but it tells me it only works with a previous system. What do I do?


It is software for OS 9 probably. If you have Classic installed you may be able to run it there. Check Epson web site for up-dates for OS X.

I have a mac G3, and have os x ver. 10.3.9 I just bought the logitech E3560 webcam, how can I install it? It's not loading anything from the installation disk!


It sounds like your camera is not compatible with Mac OS. The disc may only have the software for Windows. Go to Logitech web site and see if you can find the software for Mac.

How do i create my own computer software?


If you want to write Windows software, you'll need to pick up something like Microsoft Visual Studio 2000/2005/2008. If you're a student, many colleges offer this at a huge discount.  If you want to write software for mac, you'll need to get a copy of XCode from your Mac install disk 1.  If you want to write software for Linux, it's already included.  -------- In any of the above cases, you'll need to learn a programming language like c++, Java or Python. Beginner frequently start with C++, as do many college computer science curriculums. Either way, get a book on your programming language from your local library.
