Restart appears on start up

Resetting the PRAM may do the trick: You reset the PRAM by rebooting a Mac and then immediately hold down the Command+Option+P+R keys, you will then hear the Mac reboot sound again, signifying your PRAM has been reset. You must hit the key combination before the grey screen appears otherwise it won't work. you've tried rebooting, you've reset the PRAM, you've done it all, but your Mac is still behaving strangely. What next? In certain circumstances, resetting your Mac's System Management Controller (SMC) can be a solution. This is sometimes necessary to restore normal lower level system functionality to your Mac. Here's how to reset the SMC on any type of Mac (and any version of OS X) and the type of problems that it may resolve. When & Why Reset SMC on a Mac? Some Common Hardware Reasons Typically it's power and hardware related issues that can be helped or resolved by resetting a Mac SMC, particularly if you're having these types of problems: * Issues with your Mac's cooling fans and fan management: fans run constantly at high speed, fans run high despite low CPU usage and adequate ventilation, fans not working at all, etc * Power management and battery problems: Mac isn't turning on, sleep isn't working, random shutdowns and reboots, battery isn't charging, Mac won't wake from sleep etc * Light problems and improper lighting management: battery indicator lights aren't working, display backlighting isn't adjusting to ambient light changes, keyboard backlights not working, etc * Video and external displays not working: display brightness functionality not working properly, target video mode isn't working properly, external display isn't working, etc * General performance and functionality problems: abnormally sluggish behavior despite no CPU or disk usage, external ports not working, airport & bluetooth aren't showing up, external devices are not being found, etc So now that you've concluded you need to reset your SMC (Note that the SMC is on Intel Mac's only), here's how to do it on MacBook's, MacBook Pro's, iMac's, Mac Mini's, and Mac Pro's. Notice that the reset instructions are different for MacBook and MacBook Pro's if you have an internal or detachable battery. Reset SMC of a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro Retina, or MacBook Pro's with an internal non-removable battery This is how to reset SMC on most modern Mac laptops: Shutdown your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro Connect the power adapter to your Mac On the MacBook/Pro's keyboard, hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time Release all keys and the power button at the same time Boot your Mac as usual Here's the key sequence to hold down: Reset the SMC of a MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro Do keep in mind that by resetting the SMC you will lose power specific settings, like the time it takes to sleep a Mac and other customizations to power settings. No big deal, but if you have made many changes to your hardware behavior you will want to adjust stuff like sleep behavior again. Reset SMC of an iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini Resetting SMC is different for non-portable Macs: Shut down your Mac Disconnect the power cord Press and hold the Mac's power button for 5 seconds Release the button Reattach the power cables and boot the Mac as usual Reset the SMC of a MacBook or MacBook Pro's with detachable batteries mac reset the smc Older MacBook laptops with a removable battery can reset SMC with the following approach: Shutdown the MacBook/Pro and remove the battery Disconnect the power adapter, hold the Power Key for 10 seconds Release the power key and reconnect your battery and power adapter Turn your Mac on Let boot as usual Hopefully that will clear up your problems, if not it might be worth a visit to the Apple Store or a certified repair center.

Reset button on a powerbook g4

The Powerbook G4 power button functions like a reset button if you hold the power button in for a few seconds until the computer powers down.
  1. Hold the power button in for a few seconds (until you see the screen turn off/go black and hear the fans & hard drive stop spinning).
  2. Press the power button again to turn your computer on.
  3. If you have more trouble, you may need to boot in Safe Mode or "perform a Safe Boot": Press and hold down the "Shift" key immediately after you hear the start-up tone. Release the "Shift" key when the gray Apple icon appears on the screen.

I bought a used apple powerbook G4,my wifi does not work without a password but I don't know that password, how do I find password

Lack of information , What is the model number of the wi-fi router. Once you know this google search for default ip address (with the router model number) then google search default password (with router model) then open a browser with p.c or laptop directly connected to the router via an ethernet patch cable. Type in ip address in browser. then log into router. And go to security and look what the encryption key is and make a note of it, if you have a working device already on the wi fi you may be able to log into the router. typical default router addresses are ot your may be different.

I have windows vista on Dell PC and have forgotten the password used when installing and setting up the computer. How can I retrieve it.

Try going into safe mode by pressing F8 when you turn your computer on it will keep beeping just keep pressing F8 and once your in sage mode you should see your user name click on Other and type in administrator and that should let you in to reset your password for your account. If that does not work try this software

No sound on my macbook

Check if there is any sound coming out of the headphone (using headphone and playing itunes).If there is none. Goto System Preference > Hardware > Sound > Output ; check if the output is assign to internal speaker and it is not muted. Do a visual check at the headphone connector, look into it, see if you see a red light emit from the headphone jack (indicate that the fault is in the headphone connector, it's trying to output optical spdif).

I have an old PowerBook g4 in my kitchen

Cut the airport off and back on again. After that, delete any wifi profiles you have, and then re-add them. This will clear any corrupt profiles and troubleshoot that. If you can't connect to anything after that, check that the airport card is connected securely. If, after all that, it still isn't working, and other devices are able to connect to the same network, then your airport card is probably no longer working.

Sims 3 wont install onto my powerbook G4

Sims 3 will not run on a mac that isn't using an Intel based processor. You will have to upgrade from a Power-PC processor in order to use the latest version of sims.

Date and time changes if left for short time

Only date & time are changed? Are they reset to year of 19XX?If it is, that problem usually is caused by low Bios battery. You should replace it.

It keeps getting stuck on

WHen you hear the startup chime, hold the shift key down. Do not release the shift key until you see the login screen. Then login and examine your System Preferences for something you recently added that is incompatible with your system. If you can't find anything obvious, use the Console utility to examine the system logs and see what error messages occurred during your earlier unsuccessful boot attempts.

This is usually symptomatic of a chafed or pinched LVDS cable, especially if the line comes and goes as you work the hinges. This not a user-replaceable part. If the line does not flicker when the hinges are moved, there is a possibility that your LCD screen itself has gone bad.
