After some troubleshooting, I concluded that the issue with these projects was not inside the projects themselves, but in the events that have been used in these projects and to be more precise, with the thumbnails of these events. It looks like something went wrong during or before the iMovie crash and affected the events video thumbnails. The solution ...

First step in Troubleshooting to do is to start in Safe mode. (Hold Shift during start up) That will eliminate 99% of foreign applications causing the problem. That will also show if it is a hardware problem. Sometimes it is enough to start in Safe mode to fix small problems. If problem continues, run the Apple Hardware test, that might show problems with ...

The best way to resolve hardware RAM issues is to isolate this around one of the sticks of RAM. This is most likely a hardware issue, that will only show as a bunch of random software impacts, making it really hard to diagnose. Remove all the RAM, and put in only one new 4GB stick in, then start the Mac. If it boots and runs, then you have a good stick. Try ...

It could be an issue with one of the files preview is attempting to open. Go to ~/Library/Saved Application State/ Remove the com.Apple.Preview folder. This should resolve the issue when attempting to launch Preview after quitting the application from the above answer or shutting down.

This happens to me once. Have you used 'Text' tool from the markup toolbar? If so, the font you used before might not be available with your current setup. If you remember which font it was, install it. Preview.app should open fine after.

The locationd file was corrupted. After trying to access my privacy settings in safe mode and normal mode (which did not work, it crashed) and after a restart and PRAM reset (which did not help neither) I installed the combo update from here https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1804?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US and that worked very well :)

Connect your iPad to a Mac or PC using the iTunes application. Try to make a backup from there; if that worked, restore the iPad to factory defaults (that basically erases everything that's on it) and restore the backup you just made. For the future: Make a backup regularly, or you will lose your data some day.

If it is a hardware issue, you'll have CPU usage and issues with a stock OS. Back things up and wipe it. Then run the iLife apps like garage band and iMovie and Photos to soak the CPU. Everything in my experience is you have some software issues that aren't ready for the new API and new CPU/GPU and will have occasional panics as the drivers get updated for ...

It happens to me a lot when I close a YouTube tab in Safari. When it happens, it's instant. The system is still running. I can move the pointer. But otherwise the entire screen freezes. If I'm lucky it unfreezes in a fraction of a minute. If I'm unlucky it doesn't do that and I have to force a reboot. I've linked it to this message: 5/20/15 8:01:30.630 PM ...

It could be the recent iMessage bug. Here is the fix Apple has provided on its website. Hope it helps. support.apple.com/HT204897

That process is a diagnostic aid to capture system statistics. The system starts it when it detects a potential problem or an actual problem - so you've likely got something out of adjustment or problematic installed. It's from Apple and generally is more like a fire suppression system than something that starts the fire. To use that tool to find the ...
