Firefox----the same thing happened when I used safari.
I did that and the was no desk top with an osx menu bar. None of that. It just rebooted the same as always.
Even now---after having rebooted several times before I started with you the computer is 'laboring' - hmming.
It is definitely a mac & the 2nd attempt did not work. It is no different that any other time I reboot.
no I don't have the original disk. Do you feel that you actually know what the problem is or are you just troubleshooting? The reason I ask is that here on just answer in 5 previous attempts to fix this---none of them worked---they each left me in compromised positions----lost all my passwords----contacts---problem got worse----developed different problems. I am willing to continue to pursue this but I don't want to go down a potential dead end or worse.
Is there any validity in my theory that the computer just does not have the capacity to handle sites with enormous # ***** files? get's overwhelmed trying to sort through them & that there is nothing that can be done about it. If this is related-I put the maximum amount of ram possible in it.
