This sounds ridiculously simple, but it has worked for me in the past. Try checking and then unchecking Universal Access » Hearing » Flash the screen when an alert sound occurs -- this really sounds like that is the behavior in question, and sometimes setting it and the unsetting it resets to the desired behavior. This basically checks that the preference ...

Assuming it is now charged… Hold Home & Power buttons for at least 45 seconds, see if it starts up normally. If not… Plug your iPad's USB cable into a computer with iTunes. Hold down the Home button [keep holding] and connect to your iPad. Keep holding the Home button until you see a screen telling you to connect to iTunes. iTunes should show you ...

There are a number of Apple Support Communities discussions regarding this, and a number of possible fixes given. To summarise in case one works for you: Disable Finder App Nap This seems to fix it for almost everyone on ASC who had Finder working fine in 10.8 but now is 'broken' in 10.9. sudo defaults write com.apple.Finder NSAppSleepDisabled -bool YES ...

I just went through this my self! Your Mac can't find anything to boot from. Or more specifically, it can't find the system folder on your primary boot device. Try booting from your OS X DVD and running Utilities -> Disk Utility to check your boot drive for errors. To boot from your DVD, insert in to Mac, turn off Mac, and hold C while you turn it on. You ...

There's a reason why Apple appears to onlookers to be so anti-Flash, and it's because Flash sucks on Macs (it may also suck on other OSs, but I don't use them enough to be knowledgeable). What to do about it depends on what browser you use (your question doesn't say, as Mozilla's Plugin Check isn't FF-only): Safari - the answer is ClickToFlash. Honestly, ...

I ran into issues where my audio controls were disabled similar to what you describe. I can't be sure it's the same issue, but in my case, killing the Core Audio process fixed it. Open up Terminal and enter this command: sudo kill -9 `ps ax | grep 'coreaudio[a-z]' | awk '{print $1}'` You'll be prompted to enter your password, but that should find and ...

The simplest way to get rid of this, at least when it happens for me, is to hover over anything with a tooltip to get a new tooltip. Happens to me quite often with Safari these days, very annoying.

You can find the app that steals focus by saving the following code in a find_focus_stealer.py file and running it via python find_focus_stealer.py in a terminal. Start running the script, it will print out the name of the active app every 3 seconds. Keep working as usual, wait for the problem to occur, and after a few seconds see the output in the ...

The best thing with troubleshooting is to isolate the issue and keep good notes when the issue comes and when it goes. Once you also have an understanding how to make the issue ( in your case, is that glitch constant or does it come and go ) it is then very easy to systematically isolate things. In your case, switch the ram to the opposite slots, run with ...

Unless you have jailbroken your phone you can't delete the Contacts app. Most probably it's either in a folder or on a screen somewhere. To find it again press the Home button repeatedly until the search screen is shown Type "Contacts" Select Contacts app from search results If you can't find it, you could always back up your phone (to save the current ...

Just a quick note to say that I eventually stopped the crashing by manually copying these two files from another OS X machine and then manually starting the nlcd daemon (if you don't have another Mac, I posted my copies of those files here) Copied these files: /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.NetworkLinkConditioner.plist /usr/libexec/nlcd Run these ...

Restart. This happens to me periodically. Restarting always fixes it.

The beacon loss event is the key. Your wireless card lost contact with the router and gave up. wl0: Beacon Loss Event If you can, change your beaconing rate on the router to be faster (and slower - sometimes the opposite of the intuitive thing is the answer). Also you should run the Wi-Fi Diagnostics tool which resides in /System/Library/CoreServices and ...

In agreement with the original poster, in this answer I put together the comments above that describe the troubleshooting steps that helped solve the issue. Realize that PeerGuardian uses a KEXT. As strangelydim commented, PeerGuardian (an open source privacy oriented firewall software) uses a kernel extension (KEXT). The KEXT is used to block connections ...

There is a way to find out what application is responsible, if you have the developer tools installed. In versions of Mac OS X before 10.6, the Quartz Debug tool had a Window List which lists every window and the application it belongs to. Unfortunately, this has been hidden in later versions, but it can be enabled (as I just found through this article: ...

Blued and syslogd are both daemon processes. Blued is your Bluetooth daemon process and syslogd is is your logging console daemon (crash reported, console log files etc). Blued is connected to your console daemon so I guess that blued is actually the cause of your problem while the syslogd issue is only a result of the blued's problems. Looking at the error ...

Flash on the Mac is the single-largest cause of Safari crashes. That's just the way it is.

Boot to single user mode by holding command + S right after powering the system on (before the chime & apple logo). Once the system has booted to the command line, type these commands without the leading tick mark. Spaces matter, periods matter, it has to be exact. /sbin/mount -uw / cd /private/var/db rm .AppleSetupDone halt The mac should shut off. ...

That model of MBP supports audio through that adapter, so you should be getting sound. It could be any number of things. I think your problem is on the TV side, but Here are a bunch of things to try: First, make sure you're connected to your TV and getting an HDMI video signal to the video input you've selected. Go to your MIDI Audio Setup again and make ...

If you are trying to extend a wireless network that is not an Apple Airport base station it cannot be done. You can join a network but this will not increase the range of your wireless network. Unless you have a firmware that supports WDS on your 3rd party wireless router.
