Reset computer


when computer is plugged in and powered off, hold down apple and option keys on left side of space bar and p and r keys. Keep them all pressed and hold them and push the power button, keep them down and listen for the boot chime to happen three times.

THis is resetting the pram or nvram.

I have a macbook air, and i turned it on today and the white screen appeared on the screen with the apple logo, then the wheel started spinning for hours and it doesnt turn on, i wonder how can i fix it?...


Find you apple install CD's and choose the one that says application install. as you turn in on try and put the CD in and hold down the D key this should run the disk before start up and allow you to run a hardware check.

My macbook pro desktop icons are gone! and the spinning wheel keeps going. Any ideas


Your hard drive might be failing.
If you have the original install discs that came with your computer, insert disc 1 into your computer. Then turn off your computer and then turn it back on again while holding down the Option (alt) key and double click on the CD icon that pops up. Then when the computer boots from the DVD, click on Utilities and the open up the Disk Utility application. Run "Repair Disk" with your internal hard-drive selected. If this program cannot fix your problem, you may need to invest in purchasing a new hard drive and replacing the one in your computer.

My apple macbook air will not reboot. it turns on but does not reboot completely then it shuts down and tries to reboot again and again. apple logo appears and the spinning icon rotates but never goes...


It may be a possibility that the hard drive has gone bad or a connection to the hard drive. The spinning wheel and apple signify the kernel boot, or in other words, the process in which the machine finds the hd and os/software.. you need to bring your machine into an authorized repair center to have a system diagnosis to verify that no other parts of the machine are bad. That model is notorious for having bad hd's.

Mac G4. Anytime using safari for maps,hotels, etc., the wheel spins and spins and jams. have to always forecequit and use firefox, which is lately having the same issue. help


The spinning wheel is an indicator that your machine is so overloaded it cannot pay attention to any user input. Occasional appearance is acceptable; chronic appearance is not. It could mean you have insufficient memory in your computer. It could mean you have a bad spot on your hard drive. It could mean you have insufficient free space left on your hard drive. It could mean you have corrupted software. It could mean you have a bad browser plugin. It could even be a symptom of a bug in Flash taking down your browser.
In System Preferences / Accounts, create a new user. Log in as that new user. Access some maps, hotels, etc. If the wheel comes up, the problem is likely to be hardware related. If it doesn't, the problem is likely to be plugin related.

The apple appears on the screen and never goes away. 3GS


Turn the iphone off, hold the menu button, now plug in the usb cord that is connected to the computer. Keep holding the menu button until a dock connector appears on the screen. You're now in recovery mode and should be able to restore your iPhone. If that doesn't work you may have a broken logic board. Here is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPhone. Boards are easily available on Ebay2_bing.gif. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair

My ipod Nano wheel won't spin, turn, etc. it's is


Concrete is bad for iPods! It's broken. Google "iPod repairs" in your country and they might be able to replace it. Otherwise you can get an exchange unit from Apple. Take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days. Unfortunately this might cost almost as much as a new one.
