If the disk doesnt not say OS X on it, you cannot use it, even if it came with the printer. Check the packaging of the printer, the printer may be compatible, but the software might not, especially if it was "included". You may have been sold a device based on a slick application that you cannot utilize.

If you look up the $50 software, all it says is : Greeting Card Factory Deluxe 7.0 (Win), so I doubt the free version is ripe for OS X. Sorry.

Factory reset button on macbook pro


There is no 'Factory Reset' button as such. If you are running OS 10.7 to 10.10, then you need to start up from the 'recovery' partition (CMD+R) on startup. You will then be able to erase the hard drive using 'Disk Utility' and then re-install the OS.

I have a brookstone photo scanner can't install on my macbook air because there is no disc drive


Open PREVIEW (in applications) and from the "FILE" menu select "IMPORT FROM SCANNER" see if your scanner appears in the list. If not, try to add the new scanner in your SYSTEM PREFERENCES PRINTERS & SCANNERS by clicking the PLUS below the printer and scanners list. It should see your scanner as long as it is plugged in and powered up. Use the drivers available such as "Generic Scanner". Once added, go to the PREVIEW application once again and try to import from scanner. PREVIEW has it's own scanning tools and as long as it can see your scanner it should be able to run it even without your software. If all else fails go online and see if you can download the scanner software from the manufacturer's website.

How Do I restore my macbook pro to factory settings


Hi Sheila
Assuming you have the installation disk(s) that came with your MacBook it's very straightforward.Insert the Disk then restart the computere while holding down the letter C. After a short while you will get a panel asking which language you want to use, choose and then continue. Foillow through with the continues until you get to the panel that shows the desination disk for the install. Click on it - it may have a yellow warning triangle. then at the bottom lefy of the same panel you will see a button marked 'OPTIONS'. Click it and a new panel will open offereing different types of install. Choose the option that says 'erase and install'. This will wipe the HD and reinstall your software back to factory settings.
If you only had one disk then the job is complete. If you had 2, then the second will install all the other software that is not part of the basic system.

I want to restore my mac back to factory settings


There are 2 ways this is most commonly accomplished: 1: You could use the original OSX disk to reformat your MacBook and restore it to the factory settings. You'll need to click on "install Tiger" after putting the CD in and it will restart the mac. A dialog box will come up, click on options, then choose "erase and install". This will erase the ALL DATA so make sure that is what you really want. If you do not have the disk, proceed to step 2.
2: Create a new user account on your laptop. After you create the new account, log out then log back in and erase the old user account. This will delete all the personal files from the original acoount. However, the best way to actually get it back to factory would be step one because step 2 does not actually delete or reset any settings that were modified by the original user account. If possible, always try to procure a disk when restoring. It is definitely the better way to go. I hope this helps you! Please remember to vote if this helped.

Suddenly I can not print from my MacBook Pro. I have reinstalled printer software for both printers. Nothing works except to download to a thumb drive and print from a different Mac.


Download and use Revo uninstaller portable to completely remove the printer software and drivers from your computer.Sometimes the yellow program folder gets left behind as well as the drivers.Use advanced mode..u will see it when you run the revo program.Make sure to choose advanced and delete all registry items(checkmark all) as you go.After you are done,go to your programs folder and make sure any folders associated with the printer software,like HP or whatever the model is,are gone.Then restart your computer and put in the printer cd software,install it,then plug in the printer and it should pick it up and install any other drivers needed.Here is the Revo link http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download_other.html good luck

Macbook black will not start beyond the initial 'bong'. Blue screen followed by endless spinning gear. PRAM, SMV reset, no go. Safe mode can't complete. With battery or on power adapter same result....


Hello yang2699tlk,
Try this instead of using your Leopard Disc.

  1. Immediately after the "bong" press and hold down "Command + S".
  2. Wait for blinking cursor and then type fsck -y (exactly like that).
  3. If you receive an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
  4. If you receive a "Disk has been modified" then repeat the fsck -y command until you get an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.

This set of commands entered in "Single User Mode" will repair your disk. If this does not work remove the hard drive, plug it into another Mac and transfer your data to a different computer. Then install a new hard drive and reinstall Mac OS X.

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote. Thanks.

Software disk for hp office Jet k60


This printer is supported in Mac OSX. All you need to do is plug it in, and Add the Printer in System Preferences. The driver is an open source driver called Gutenprint. It is already installed on your computer, so the Add Printer should find the drivers nessesary by itself.
