MacBook Desktop Lost My Desktop Folders

I loaded a large picture DVD and started having problems today with my MacBook. It would lock up trying to open one of the pics. I was trying to shut the computer down, the little color circle wouldn't stop, so I started pushing buttons. Anyway, now nothing shows up on the desktop--how do I find and restore the folders and files to my desktop? Where could they be? Are they hiding or gone - altogether? Help. Please Ginger

If the colour circle shows... find a tiny bit of wallpaper showing through the back, then click. Then, you should see it labled finder instead of preview. Next, click on the blue apple. If it doesn't happen immediatly, a dropdown bar will show in a couple minutes. In the dropout bar, click Force Quit. It usually takes 2 minutes for the Force Quit window to show up. It'll ask you what you want to force quit,  Look at the choices and force quit all of the ones that say: NOT RESPONDING. Then the computer will clear up for a while, in wich you can probably preview your pictures.

Replace iMac g5 20 hard drive


Hi John
Try reinstalling via your macbook pro but this way round.Put the Leopard Disk into the Macbook and then start the Macbook in Target mode.on the iMac start it up and hold down the Option (or Alt) key then wait.after a short while you will be offered the HD in the MacBook and the DVD. Choose the DVD and see what happens.
What happens when you do it the other war arounds is that you are installing a startup system for the MacBook onto the HD of the G5 and not the system for the G5. The installer uses the firmware of the motherboard that is running the install to select the correct version.
Another issue is that the disk formatting may be wrong. it's unlikely seeing that you used disk utility from the DVD, but it is possible.
Let us know how you get on.

My mcintosh screen become locked so I turned it off and waited about 1/2 hour before turning it back on. It took a long time before the screen turned blue and thats where it sits. Nothing else has pulled...


Try rebootint with your OSX disk in the dvd drive. then before you would hear the chime, press and hold the C key down on your keyboard. This will boot from the DVD and once it has finished loading (may take some time) will ask your to choose your language. After this go to utilities in the menu at the top and click on Disk Utility. When this opens, click on your hard drive on the left hand side (highighted in orange in picture), and then click repair disk and after that completes click repair permissions. (see picture)fairplay23.png After all of this shut down and restart your computer without the OSX dvd in the drive and it should boot normally.
Let me know if this works

MacBook Desktop Lost My Desktop Folders


Hello, it semms that you have a "permission" issue, or that you are accesing another account on the computer without noticing it. Please repair disk and permissions from the disk utility on your install DVD:

- Insert install DVD
- reboot the mac holding the C key
- choose english
- Go to the utilities menu and choose Disk Utility
- In the disk utility window, SOS tab, select your drive, and hit repair disk and repair permissions
- reboot

Also check that you are accessing the account that you want and not another one: log out, and log in...

SUDDENLY LOST MOST OF MY EMAIL CONTACTS ON BOTH MY COMPUTERS


Hi, it seems like you are using IMAP protocol for your mail settings. The good thing about IMAP is that you can see the same emails listing for your imac, and your macbook. The bad thing about IMAP is that when you accidentaly delete emails on whatever computer, the others won't see them either.
Please check in Mail's trash folders for all your computers, and check if the mails were not simply moved to another folder
