the logo is up .. the last thing I did was to try to move all my photos to a burn file...19,000 +... the gear was going for quite a while...when it did not respond I turned it off....
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX can help me,
no, I don't see the gear...just the arrow (which will point to everything but not engage.
I think i'ts a MacBook pro, with snowleopard...thE model is MC413LL/A
I think so, the processor name is, intelcore 2 duo and the id is imac10,1
did you get my answer?
no change...the color wheel is now gone again..
I only heard it chime once... I held the alt key & now I see a pic of the harddrive
only one .. under it says 'macintosh HD under that is an up arrow..
one hd .. under it is Macintosh HD .. under that is an up arrow..
I have 2 discs; app install dvd .. and mac os x install dvd... which do I use?
I put disc in... clicked arrow... then the old screen saver, etc. came up...disc will not eject..
no spinning gear just the pointer (which moves)
they are both there.
did u get my message saying I got both of those?
arrow does not move.
I am using a wireless ... screen changed to screen saver and spinning color disc
the internet icon bounced (like it usually does) but has now stopped.
I do not have a usb mouse... screen saver is back..has the spinning color wheel
I am, also,, using a wireless keyboard. the colorwheel moves as if it were the mouse.
I got both..the disc ejected, but a gray bar is now loading (stopped loading...
now the mac os x safe boot is up asking for my password?
back up (thank you)...trying to delete 'iphoto' trash...moving very slow...i'll let you know what happens next
I'LL HAVE TO GET BACK TO YOU IN AN HOUR OR SO.. THANKS!
I can not restart from the apple...I am given the option but it does nothing.
I am able to force quit...it takes several mins. to respond...but then when I 'shut down...nothing happens.
the only text that comes up is in the top bar...where should I type?
after typing in , it tells me that there is no such file or directory
I re did it... it comes back 'Removed 7 Orphaned / unlinked files and 0 directories
apparently it did not go ok..the mv~/Desktop (etc) command came back as: no such file or directory
it did not give me an opportunity to log in...went directly to apple with gear...then to screen sver with arrow.
tried command-S and mount command again...got apple, gear..then screensaver and pointer
no text...straight to screensaver....do not have a usb keyboard..
I put new batteries into the keyboard...there are no satellite or audio transmitters nearby.
the caps light does come on...and yes I get the hd and an up arrow
I can not click on the arrow...after about a min. the disc ejects.
I am back to screen saver
screen came up with all apps...will now allow me to click on the small apple...very slow to respond but stays open long enough to decide on action
I emptied trash... it says I have 764.92 gb avail
nothing is happening
yes it opens...finder is listed in it
pointer is not frozen... I did relaunch...box with finder in it is now on screen
no, nothing happens...as a side issue...the numerous photo files from iPhoto trash are still appearing in upper left hand of window
they are on the desktop right in the upper left corner ...not in a finder window, they are all stacked on top of each other
yes I see 'about this mac'..when I click on it nothing happens.
move to the trash
hi david, no I was not able to get them to move (I was able to highlight them..however, all folders on my screen highlighted with them... at this point i'd be willing to delete everything... I did a backup last week
ok text is up
says Is: command not found
says: removed 2 orphaned / unlinked files and 0 directories
users root #
command not found
it is telling me : command not found
hi david...did you send me another message?...I received notification of one but did not receive it
localized Shared macowner
a number of files
under those is .... macowner root#
how do I get to finder?
it's moved... do I now put in trash? ... sorry but i'm apprehensive to do anything without asking first...
I have all photos that I need... next step?
GREAT...THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP! everything done and it runs so much better...., however, it still runs pretty slow...how can I clean unnecessary items from hd?
