Signatures, Avatars and Nicks
Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately.
To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind.
Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information?
My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
Salve, sono da poco riuscito ad installare l'OS di High Sierra sul mio laptop, ma adesso non va la scheda di rete, il bluetooth pare funzionare, invece; inoltre non riesco a rendere l'HDD bootabile, ho installato clover, copiato clover della chiavetta ma niente, la scheda madre non lo riconosce come un OS e non esiste alcuna opzione del tipo "OS type", qualcuno può aiutarmi? grazie in anticipo
I've successfully installed High Sierra (10.13.0) on my system using Clover:
2x Intel Xeon E5410
Everything is running fine except the GPU. I've tried the web driver's latest version and 322.214.171.124.25.106 but both are very laggy/sluggish.
I've also tried installing Lilu and nVidiaGraphicsFixUp kexts but they didn't change anything.
Have someone managed to make this card work with High Sierra?
