Question about Apple Power Mac G4 Dual Mac Desktop
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.
