  • You may have figured this out by now but there was an update to office 2011 that introduced a lot of issues with outlook 2011.   Microsoft has released a new version today you should try out.   http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/office…
  • It sounds like a hardware problem to me. What happens when you boot off a cd? Does it run forever or does it shut down. If it shuts down that would be a pretty clear indication that the issue is hardware. What happens if you boot up your MBP…

  • You can do this with migration assistant. It's the same tool you used to import your own stuff. Applications > Utilities > Migration Assistant start your wife's computer in target disk mode, only import her user stuff and you should be …
  • Couple things: Is your DSL connection PPPoE? If so is the airport initiating the PPPoE connection? Sounds like the PPPoE connection is what is going down. I have a Time Capsule with a similar problem. It starts the PPPoE connection to the…
  • Do you mean the system username? This can be changed but it is tricky and a mistake can be devastating. Apple actually recommends creating a new user account and moving stuff over: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106824 …
  • OK found it: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist Might check the values of these two strings: Root > System > Network > Hostnames > LocalhostName > Root > System > System > Computer Name > …
  • Sounds like a corrupt preference file. Not sure where it is stored tho... What happens when you try to change it from another user account on the same machine?

  • WhatSize does report on invisible files.
  • As to your first question, I am guessing that both machines are already on a wireless network, for internet access, no? You just need to figure out how to connect between the two. I'll let someone with more pc knowledge speak on how to set it up…
  • Does your widget indicate fan speed? If not you might want to try hardwaremonitor which does (at least on my PowerMac G5). I think it is unlikely that any of your fans are completely non-functional as I believe a fryup would follow swiftly in su…
  • Couple of thoughts: I have a PC and Mac that share a monitor. The monitor has DVI in which runs to the Mac and VGA in which connects to the PC. There's a button on the front of the monitor that allows me to switch back and forth. I run the key…

  • Isn't MacOS 9 included on some MacOSX install CDs/DVDs? I seem to remember that it is. Also there's always ebay: http://computers.search.ebay.com/mac...acQ20osQ22Q209
  • Maybe it is overheating... Does it only freeze when you are taxing it? Here's a great utility to monitor heat: http://www.bresink.com/osx/HardwareMonitor.html Also, you should confirm that the card's fan is running.... Hope this helps.
  • I would think that the better way to do this would be to plug both the printer and the mac into a switch. Then let what ever is acting as a router for your Mac also be the router for your printer (your router is probably your cable modem, but you g…
  • If I had up to $500 to spend on this machine I'd do it as follows: Additional 1 Gig RAM: $130. http://dealnews.com/memory/prices/sy...M/2/512MB.html Processor upgrades are available (new, not ebay) for as little as $179. http://eshop.mac…
  • Sound like your finder preferences got hosed: Try looking at the finder preferences: Finder > Preferences > Show these items on the desktop: [X] Hard Disks Toggling this setting may fix the problem. If not you may have to delete…
