Apple :: Where Does Quicktime Save Its Configuration File
Feb 21, 2009
Where does Quicktime for Windows save its configuration file? I need to manually change the config file in order to solve a problem with Merriam Webster Visual Dictionary that has a problem with the audio. If you don't use Windows but know the name of the file.
My Aspire M laptop will not boot due to the 'boot configuration file being invalid', at least, this is what the 'Recovery' blue screen states. The blue screen offers to 'Press Esc for UEFI Firmware settings, but is not responsive. I've tried F2, F8, F10, Alt+F10, F12, Space Bar, Delete and Break to try to activate the BIOS interface, all equally unsuccessful.
I followed the instructions to purchase recovery tools from Acer, but without being able to access the BIOS to set the boot order, I've just sunk another $25 into a laptop that doesn't work. The cost of service exceeds the cost of the laptop, so I'm inclined to continue trying to repair it myself. If it cant' be repaired, there is little chance I'll purchase a new Acer to replace it as this has been a very frustrating experience.
When i'm turn on my HP envy 4-1257er after the sudden shutdown on the screen displays the HP logo that says "please wait". After a few seconds appears the "blue screen with a sad smiley" and further reads:
"Recovery. Your PC needs to be repaired. The boot configuration data file is missing some required information. File: BCD. Error code: 00xc0000034. You need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. Is your don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer. Press ESC for UEFI firmware settings. "
After pressing the ESC button opens a Startup Menu with a choose an actions like: f1 - system information (worked), f2 - system diagnostic (worked), f9 - boot device options (doesn't work) , f10 - BIOS setup (doesn't work), f11 - system recovery (doesn't work). When I click on these buttons (f9, f10, f11) again loaded a blue screen with an error. On the usb-drives with images does not respond in any way.
complain about the differences between Apple's version of MS Office Home and the PC variety.
Speaking generally, have you noticed any issues in working on Word/Excel/Powerpoint files on your MBP that were created on a PC, and vice versa?
I'm asking because my company (as do most) uses PCs at work, and I'm wondering if there could be any issues in my working on MS Office files at home with a MBP and then planning to send them to colleagues who are using PCs.
how to organize files in folders by date modified by when i modified it. I know that you can right click and use "arrange by date modified" but that sometimes arranges the files when they were modified online and not by me. I know on windows when i use Arrange by last modified it arranges it according to the date when i last downloaded it or opened it, not by when it was modified online. I would like to be arrange by date last opened or used by me.
just got my mac last week, been using windows since forever. It's definitely a pleasure and exciting experience to us Mac OS. However there was a problem, I like to put my files on the desktop, but I couldn't figure out how to check the size of them.
I some how managed to completely screwup the file permissions ownership on my macbook (10.6). This seems to have also mirrored itself to my timemachine. So I did a clean instal of SL, and then manually moved my files from TM back across, but unfortunatley the permission for all said files are wrong.
So I went as set using cmd+I the permission to myself as owner, as checked to apply to enclosed items, thinkin that would do the trick.
Unfortunately while it did fix a few files, the majority still remain stuck with the "_unknown" as the owner, which is preventing me from opening and using pretty much everything on my mac.
Does anyone know a way to force write the owner permissions to me for ALL files in my home directory?
I have tried the repair permissions in disk utility several times, it does nothing
on OS X is there any way to see some details on a file by hovering your cursor over it? Ex: If I hover my mouse on a JPG on my desktop I can see the dimensions (like 1920x1200) and the filesize (like 2.3MB). Is there any way to enable this on my Macbook Pro?
My understanding is that FileVault's shortcomings are such:
- Documented vulnerabilities - Requires that user be logged off to backup with Time Machine
I have a few things on my notebook that I would like to be kept safe in the event of a loss or theft. I used to use AxCrypt on Windows for this, but there are no OSX builds for it, so what I'm wondering is this:
- If I create an encrypted image and use it like a TrueCrypt/Cryptainer partition, will Time Machine back the image up as it changes over time like any other file? - Is there any reason I shouldn't do that over some other way of keeping things safe?
i like having my m1530 on my lap (unplugged) in the living room while i watch tv/babysit so far i can only make it last 2 hours at the most(surfing the web,messengers) with the brightness 30% and powersaver mode.
well i was reading on the thread on how to underclock your cpu...theres a problem with that:
-numero first im too lazy (hurts my head when i try to understand the thread,hence the "[ADVANCE]" on the title ^^")
-numero dos having a t5450 on power saver mode (50% max perfomance) is slow enough... so i tried to look for a better solution and found this...
i think its great...my battery up to 2 hours and 20-ish minutes.
I recently had a small flood in my basement. While my laptop didnt get wet the power adapter did. It stopped working as there was water dripping out of the adapter. I purchased a IGO adapter from Radio Shack. I tried it in the store on my laptop and it worked fine. I got it home and it was a different story. The unit kept turning itself on and off and i kept having to jiggle it to work. Finally I decided to return the adapter and buy another one. I purchased a 90 watt adapter from Best Buy. Now the machine doesnt do anything. Nothing happens, no blue light or anything.
i was always looking for a good solution to create an ISO of your hard drive. this way, after a clean xp & drivers istall, you can save this image to a usb-hdd/usb-stick/CDs/DVDs/etc. and everytime your system needs to be reinstalled (virus, slowdowns, registry messed up, ...) you can save yourself the endless installation/sp2 download/driver search and simply play back the clean windows in about 1 hour.
there is commercial software like trueimage, which does that. and norton ghost, which i hate, as i hate symantec software and this tool is not really good.
and there is a freeware tool, which is named "driveimage xml". very simple to use and it works great:
you simply click "back up", choose the path to the destination you want and wait a few minutes.
when pushing big files and not choosing the option "split large files", remember, that your destination harddisk has to be formated with ntfs, as you can't push files bigger than 4 GB to fat32 formated drives at once.
the only thing you have to do is create a boot cd with an operating system on it, so you can restore your image to the system hdd.
i used the freeware bart pe to do this:
you only have to transform your xp cd with it to become an operating system cd. and insert the plugin for driveimage xml (available on the runtime.org homepage), so you can run driveimage xml when booting from cd.
I have an Aspire 5720. The default mode for the eAuido Management is Movie (which means surround on). When I turn the computer on, I change that value to Music (surround off). However, there is no way to save my preferred mode (Music), and everytime, I have to bother with changing it from Movie to Music.
Is there a way to make "Music" the default mode of the eAudio Management?
as you all may have heard, when your laptop is idle the hdd makes a clicking sound . that means that it is parking its head/s to save power. the thing is that this will make it brake faster. wd hdds have like 300 000 cycles .
I have Acer 6935 (P8400, GF9600 512 DDR3, 4 GB RAM DDR3) and use Vista 64 bit. Today I have noticed a strange behavior of my laptop when the battery is used (power save scheme is on).
On the beginning, the battery is fully charged. I start listening music or watching a movie, it does not matter. It takes about 1 hour, for example.
The battery is about 50-60% full (1h 30 min left) and suddenly the laptop goes to standby. When I turn it on, turns out that only 9% of the battery left. The wireless and the Bluetooth are off. I use Vista 64 bit.
The laptop is only 6 months and the battery has not been hard used.
I am using Sony Vaio SZ. My operating system crashed, When I start my computer, it shows the following message. error: loading operating system. I know I can format and reinstall factory settings if I click F10 at startup. But I first want to save my files. Can I start MS DOS than copy files to external drive or is there any other way?I have all my files in that laptop.
Dropped computer during move,lost all the disks and paperwork.Hard drive was damaged so purchased new one locally..Downloaded ISO win 7 86,installed used original validation.It booted up all fine but no drivers for mouse or Ethernet or wifi actually no drivers.Mouse works.
How can I download the drivers and save them to CD/DVD and install on machine.
I have a zbook with a nvidia quadro 610m graphics. I cannot get the gpu to save settings or engage when playing games. It was working until I tried to give windows 8 a try.I did a fresh install of windows 8. Then I installed the hp drivers cd that came with workstation. Everything says it completed successfully and I've rebooted multiple times.
When I open the nvidia control panel, none of the settings I change stick. E.g. tell every program to use the 610m. I click apply it looks like it was successful. However, if I open the nvidia control panel again, all changes are reverted. I restarted after hitting apply too. It doesnt matter what the changes are, they all revert.
I'm guessing I screwed up with the driver install or something but IDK.The device manager says that the 610m is working properly and the driver is up do date.
When I try to backup using OKR the default partition Lenovo D drive is only about 1.5GB so obvioulsy cannot backup there as not enough space. So where do I save it, is the C drive ok or is that just dumb?
