Normal restart: select restart from the apple menu, or press the power key (the sleep/restart/shutdown dialog appears), then click the restart button or press the "r" key.
Forced restart (use only if the computer crashes or freezes): Press simultaneously the Apple, Control and power keys.
Forced shutdown (use only if the computer won't respond to anything, not even a forced restart): Press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off.

My desktop suddenly suspended, switched it off by pressing the power button. Now it does not boot, the screen stays dark, though power lights on the PC and keyboard are on. What should I do?


You are the owner of a desktop PC that has developed a sudden and catastrophic hardware
fault - probably on the motherboard (since even the ROM BIOS doesn't give evidence of its
existence), but possibly in the power supply.

Desktop PC power supplies are (relatively) easily replaceable, so if you have as many spare
power supplies lying around as I do, try replacing that first - if that doesn't fix the system, then
the problem is on the motherboard.

Since your power supply is alive enough to light the power LEDs on the system unit tower and
also the keyboard, the problem is probably on the motherboard - look at it - there may be an obviously burned visible component - but there usually is no visible sign of the fatal failure.

The reason I do not suspect your HDD (hard disk drive) has crashed is that ROM BIOS
executes at (power start) boot time right out of motherboard-mounted ROM, independent of
whether or not the HDD is functional - and since not even the BIOS message appears on your monitor, I therefore know that the boot sequence has been interrupted long before the computer becomes intelligent enough to find and access a disk drive, and then command it to try to find a
boot sector.

How to fix the computer: isolate the boot problem to the motherboard. Replace motherboard.

Hi there!

It is possible that your school's network doesn't allow access to Facebook's website that's why you can't access it. Most schools doesn't allow its student to browse social network websites like Facebook, Twitter and others.

Mionet problem


Your account has something called "account bug"
You will need to reinstall MioNet on all computers, reset the My Book World, then attach it to your new MioNet account. You'll need to download the Blue-Ring My Book World version of MioNet here:
http://www.MioNet.com/mbvista
Then, to attach your My Book World to the new MioNet account (just select a new username when you re-install MioNet), follow these directions:

1. Turn off My Book World
2. Identify the reset button on the back of My Book World
3. Depress the reset button while restarting My Book World
4. Keep the reset button depressed for about 10 seconds after you see blue lights on My Book World

You should now be able to sign in to the Shared Storage Manager as admin/123456.

5. Please open your web browsers and enter (without the quotes) "http://<IP address of My Book World>" or "http://mybookworld" in the address bar. The Shared Storage Manager web page will appear.
6. Once you have accessed the Western Digital Shared Storage Manager please select "General Setup" then choose "WD Anywhere Access settings." Use the default username of "admin" and default password of "123456" (without the quotes). On the following page you will have three buttons to select, please click on the "Reset" button. This will return the MioNet software on My Book World to default settings.
7. From within the MioNet Client, go to File > Remove Computer. Locate the My Book World (WDStorage, MyBookWorld, or whatever you named it) and remove it.
8. If you do not see a new window from MioNet informing you that you have a storage device available, "Scan for Cameras and New Devices…" to detect the unit.

I can't access my drive through mionet. My son accidently unplugged the world book and I can't access it ever since. Should I reinstall the mionet. I can't remember if there were any installation CD that...


Once the My Book World has been plugged back in, it will request a new IP from the Router. If the drive was unplugged accidentally, the ethernet cable may have also been knocked loose: make sure all cables are attached to the Router and the My Book World.

If your drive is still not appearing properly in MioNet, you can do a Hardware and Software reset on the drive. It will not affect your data, and it will allow you to re-attach the drive to your MioNet account. You do not need to reinstall MioNet to do this.\

1. Turn off My Book World
2. Identify the reset button on the back of My Book World
3. Depress the reset button while restarting My Book World
4. Keep the reset button depressed for about 10 seconds after you see blue lights on My Book World

You should now be able to sign in to the Shared Storage Manager as admin/123456.

5. Please open your web browsers and enter (without the quotes) "http://<IP address of My Book World>" or "http://mybookworld" in the address bar. The Shared Storage Manager web page will appear.

Mionet application does'nt open


Two things to consider:
1. make sure the drive is connected; you can do so by trying to browse the drive through the my computer network places, or by pinging to the drive's ip; meaning the drive must have to be connected and communicating to your pc
2. completely uninstall the Mionet desktop tool, restart the pc, and then reinstall the Mionet desktop tool.

good luck !!!
