Hello, they guy that posted above me suggested to reinstall Mac OS X. that obviously only works if you have the original disc. but if you dont, what you could do is to make a new Administrator account and delete the other one. that would get rid of all your user files. if it doesnt then you could delete the rest manually.

Close the Kindle app and restart it. If that does not help, try restarting your MacBook.

Connection problems, macbook air to pocket projector.

Hi Kevan. What video connector is on your macbook Air? There is the Micro-DVI version OR the new ThunderBolt version. The Thunderbird version is squarer (looks a little like the USB socket on a printer) and has a little lightning flash (Thunderbolt) by its top left corner.
If you have the first one, you need this connector Apple Micro-DVI to VGA Adapter and a normal VGA cable (included oin the Philips box).
If you have a Thunderbolt connector then it would appear that you are stumped. This makes no sense as Apple sell this, projector in their stores - and it won't connect to any computer they currently sell (except the iPad).

I reformat my olympus ws 100 on a mac and, erase everything, and the computer didnt want to recognized it. When turn on the display showed check and went off. When turn on without connecting to the computer and without the hold the display showed no format. If you use the foward button you can change the display to yes format and press play to select. That solve the problem.

How u do that


With the use of the recovery CD that originally came with the laptop or an OEM Windows installer of your OS, do a clean fresh install. With this method everything will be erase and a new Operating System will be installed. With the use of the OEM/Windows Installer, it will even repartition, format the HD.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
