  1. getting same as unconscious on Dell D530. choosing Intel x3100 during install but get a flash of blue then a black screen.
  2. no-one have this problem?
  3. my 10.4.9 install is running Safari 2.0.1 I've read this thread about updating to safari 3 without the 10.4.11 upgrade. However I want to know if you get the Iphoto support when 'uploading files'. On my leopard install it shows my iphoto library under the photos tab on the side bar. I can't believe Apple's solution to this is to drag or export your photos to your desktop, upload them then delete them! It's ridiculous! They clearly know its an issue cause you can access your iphoto library from the Safari 'Choose File' in Leopard so why wont they fix it for uses on Tiger versions!
  4. If anyone wants to trade in UK. System Spec Here
  5. ok, I've checked on a friends Leopard install and on his finder he has 'Photos' on his sidebar which takes you to your iphoto library. I'm running tiger 10.4.9 and just have the movies pictures and music 'folders'. --Matt.
  6. Hey- When I'm on a website and click 'Choose File' for upload, Safari shows its file chooser. When I've got this finder in columns view and I select Pictures - Iphoto Lib. It shows the package with more help. I can't right click and 'Show Package' I'm basically trying to get to my Iphotos quickly. I created an Automator Media Browser using the action 'Ask for Images'. I then saved it as a .app and dragged the .app to the sidebar on the finder. when I click this is displays a neat media browser when I can choose a pic and it closes. Now when I click 'Choose File' in Safari I see my .app on the sidebar but when I click it, it doesnt run it just shows info about the .app. (if i double click it, Safari thinks I want to upload the .app to the website.) How do I get safari to run the .app??? From what I've read people drag their iphoto's for uploading to the desktop and then delete them after uploading. As Iphoto is a first party app you'd think it would integrate nicely with Safari! Mr Jobs, It's 'Not Just Working' --Matt.
  7. External Monitor GMA900

    "For that click "Detect Displays" in Display Prefpane, then the second Monitor on pin Mod will disappear and no more Mouse Tearing. For that you can do a AppleScript that does this for you on after boot." doesn't do anything, my mouse still runs off to the other monitor Acer Travelmate 2420
  8. Hi mate, I installed it and exactly the same thing happened to me. Did you ever get around this problem??? Also I had problems with the GMA950 Kext from Natits, I could get the Resolution higher and had bad tearing. Did you experience this? I gave up on it in the end and put Vista back on, but now i'm looking at it again because Vista is driving me crazy. -Matt
