The power come on but the harddrive will not boot since there is nothing shows on the screen. The screen is blank, no apple sign, no sping gears. pls what do i do,and my mac os that comes with the system...


With regards to the blank screen, this usually indicates an issue with the hard drive being faulty (hardware) or the OS might have corrupt system files (software).
These are the items you will need before we begin:
A. Mac desktop/laptop B. Mac OSX Installation DVD
A. Software Related
1. Power on the Mac computer/laptop and immediately press and hold the option key. 2. After about 15 seconds of holding the option key, release it and insert the Mac OSX DVD. 3. The DVD should load and display on-screen (along with any additional drives available on the system). 4. If the hard drive icon appears, then click on it. (if the hard drive boots the OS, then the issue is software related. Skip down to Section B, step #1). 5. If the hard drive did not appear, then the system does not recognize it. However, the DVD icon should have appeared, click on it. 6. The DVD will boot and begin the installation process. 7. Follow the installation prompts. 8. Once completed, the desktop/laptop will reboot and after logging in, will execute the registration process. 9. Complete the registration exercise and access the desktop. 10. Perform a software update and download all system and application updates to their latest versions.

B. Hardware Related
1. Power on the Mac computer/laptop and immediately press and hold the option key. 2. After about 15 seconds of holding the option key, release it and insert the Mac OSX DVD. 3. The DVD should load and display on-screen (along with any additional drives available on the system). 4. If the hard drive icon appears, then click on it. (if the hard drive boots the OS, then the issue is software related. Restart the computer and skip up to Section A, step #1). 5. If the hard drive did not appear, then the system does not recognize it. However, the DVD icon should have appeared, click on it. 6. The DVD will boot and begin the installation process. 7. Close the installation application and select "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" menu option. 8. When Disk Utility loads, look to the left-hand pane and locate your hard drive (if detected). If so, click on it and format the hard drive then reboot and skip up to Section A, step #1. If the hard drive is not detected, then the hard drive has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced.
Hard drive's cost from $40-100 for sizes ranging from 40GB to 1TB. Once the hard drive has been replaced, you can install OSX from the installation DVD.

Reformat from pc to mac


Since I don't know what Mac you're talking about, nor what version of the OS, I will speak generically.

What your friend did was probably formatted the disk as an NTFS disk. No, you won't be able to see it or access it.
You need to go to Disk Utility, which came with your operating system, and run that. When the utility scans your computer and turns up the drives that are connected, it should show the drive in question (assuming that you have it connected and turned on at the time of the scan).
What you're going to have to do is repartition the drive. When your drive shows up in Disk Utility, it will appear in the left part of the window that displays all the disks and volumes mounted. For the purposes of this discussion, I will define my terms. Volume means the physical hardware, Drive means the partitioned and formatted disk.
If you look at the Disk utility window, on the left are all the volumes and disks displayed. Those are what your computer sees when it scans for drives. For example, on my computer I have 2 drives connected to it. Each drive has a drive name, and a volume name. Mine are: 465.8GB WDC5000 (which is my internal HD/hardware/VOLUME) 500 gb HD (which is the name of the DISK as it appears on my desktop)
1.4 TB Seagate (Hardware/VOLUME) Freeagent Xtreme 1.5 TB HD (which is the DISK name as it appears on my desktop)
Now, you'll want to click on the VOLUME/HARDWARE icon in the left side of the Disk Utility window. When you do this, and you've clicked on the correct icon, you'll notice that it changes the menu on the right side of the Disk Utility window. So you'll know you've clicked on the correct icon, the menu should show five options. First Aid, Erase, Partition, RAID, Restore
Having selected the VOLUME in question, you'll want to click on PARTITION. That will take you to another screen that says VOLUME SCHEME
Assuming that you're only going to be running Mac OS X on this drive, I will tell you to create only (1) one partition. To the right of VOLUME SCHEME you'll see VOLUME INFORMATION. Put in the appropriate information. Select the correct format you want. If you're going to only use this drive on a Mac, then select MAC OS EXTENDED (JOURNALED) and click the APPLY button at the bottom right of the screen. This will repartition your drive and do a low level format. I am assuming that you have no data on this drive, thus there is no need to back up the data.
Once that completes, you'll want to select the disk icon from the left side of the Disk Utility window. The menu on the right will change. It will only display four options. They are: First Aid, Erase, RAID, Restore.
You'll want to click on ERASE In the next window, it should say: Volume Format: Name: Select MAC OS (journaled) for volume format. For Name: put whatever you like Now click on the ERASE button on the right part of the screen.
Once this completes, you should be good to go!
If you're still having problems, you can e-mail me 7ohnnyramone@gmail.com and I will try to help you out.
Best regards, -Ric Carvalho

Apple laptop will not start


Get your Mac OS disk out and restart your computer with the disk in the drive ANd while holding down the C key. This will start the computer on the OS disk system.
Once you get to the desktop, look for the top menu and launch Disk Utility. Run a repair and see if you get any indications that it found anything out of the ordinary.
Then restart as normal.
If it still doesn't work, I would recommend reinstalling the system software.

Acer 4520 Booting Problem.


i would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of your network adapter, or it would be best if you install the latest drivers for it. no need to format the HD.
if you feel that formating is needed, it would also work but that takes a lot of work.

hope this helps. :)

Dont remeber my password


Hi,

It is always best to include the OS in the post which would be more easy for us to give the instructions.

In this case you can format the hard drive.

Formatting the Drive
in Windows 2000 or XP

1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
the background.

2. Double-click on My Computer/Explorer. In the My
Computer/Explorer window you should see the icon and
drive letter for the AcomData Drive.

(If you are not sure which drive letter represents the AcomData Drive, turn it off and see which one of the icons disappears. Then turn on the Drive and wait for the drive letter to reappear.)

3. Right-click on the drive letter and select Format… in the
pop-up menu. The Format dialog box will appear.

4. Under Capacity, verify the Drive capacity. It should be
close to the stated capacity of your Drive in gigabytes.

5. In the File System pop-up menu, select NTFS. As NTFS file system is more secure than the FAT32 or FAT.

6. In the Allocation unit size pop up, select “Default alloca-
tion size.”

7. In the Volume label field, type in a name for the Drive. You
should give the drive a unique name that will allow you
to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage
devices.

8. The default formatting option is Full format, however
under Format options you can select Quick Format. A
Full format will take about 30-90 minutes.

A Quick format will take just a few minutes, but will do less verifying of the Drive than a Full format will. Do not check Enable Compression.

9. Click Start. Once the format process is complete, the Drive
will be ready to use.

Formatting the Drive
in Windows 98SE or Me

1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
the background.

2. Double-click on the My Computer icon. In the My
Computer window you should see an icon and drive let-
ter for the AcomData Drive.

(If you are not sure which icon represents the Drive, turn off the Drive and see which icon disappears. Then turn the Drive back on and wait for the icon to reappear.)

3. Right-click on the drive letter and select Format. In the
Format window, verify the Drive’s capacity; it should be
close to the stated capacity of your Drive in megabytes.

4. Under Format type, select Full; everything else should be
left at the default setting. In the Label field under Other
options you may assign a name to the Drive.

You should give the drive a unique name that will allow you to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage devices.
(The name you assign is limited to 8 characters and no
symbols are allowed.)

5. Click Start. The following warning message will appear:
“This device is either a hard disk or a large removable
disk.

Formatting it will destroy all files currently on the
drive. Are you sure you want to format this drive?” If no
data was previously written to the Drive or you already
backed up the data you wish to keep, click OK.

6. If you see a warning from an antivirus program, click
Exclude.

7. When formatting is complete, you will be asked to run a
thorough Scandisk. Periodically running Scandisk is a part
of regular hard drive maintenance. If you do not wish to
run Scandisk at this time, close the Format window.

Formatting the Drive
in Mac OS X

1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
the background.

2. Launch the Disk Utility application (Applications folder >
Utilities folder > Disk Utility). The Disk Utility window will
open with a small window at left and a larger window
with a series of tabs at the top.

3. You should see the Drive listed in the left window. Click
on the Drive to highlight it. Information about the Drive
will appear in the Information window.

4. Click on the Erase tab. In the Erase window you will see a
Volume Format pop-up menu and a Name field.

5. From the Volume Format pop-up, select Mac OS
Extended. (With Mac OS 10.3.x or later, you have the
option of selecting Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

(Journaling is a feature that helps protect the file system
against power outages or hardware failures, reducing the
need for repairs. We recommend using journaling, if avail-
able.)

6. In the Name field, type in a name for the Drive. You
should give the drive a unique name that will allow you
to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage
devices.

7. Click Erase. You should see an alert pop up with the mes-
sage: “Erasing a disk will destroy all information on all of
the volumes of the disk…” Click Erase.

Once initializing is complete, you should see the Drive listed
in the left window of the Disk Utility screen with whatever
name you assigned. Quit Disk Utility. You should now see
the Drive icon on the Desktop.

Formatting the Drive
in Mac OS 9

Before you can re-format the Drive you will need to restart
your computer from the Mac OS 9 System Software CD that
came with your computer or which you purchased as an
upgrade.

1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
the background.

2. Insert the System Software CD into your CD drive.

3. With your AcomData Drive connected and powered on,
restart the computer and hold down the C key while the
computer is starting up.

4. You will see the alert message: “This disk is unreadable by
this computer. Do you want to initialize this disk?” Click
OK.

5. In the Name field, type in a name for your Drive. You
should give the drive a unique name that will allow you
to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage
devices.

6. From the Format menu, select Mac OS Extended.

7. Click Initialize. You should then get the alert message:
“Initializing will erase all information on this disk.” Click
Continue. Once initializing is complete, you should see
the Drive mounted on your Desktop with the name you
assigned.

8. Restart your computer and eject the Mac OS 9 CD, or go
to Control Panels--> Startup Disk and select the comput-
er’s startup disk. Restart the computer.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
