Apple Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Hello, I'v got a MacBook
1. Turn your MacBook Air off by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds.
2. Hold down one of the Shift keys and press the power button for a few seconds. Keep holding the shift key for about 1/2 minute. This will start the machine in "Safe Mode." It will check to make sure there are no errors on your hard drive and do other tasks to hopefully fix your problem.
3. Once you see your Desktop (if you do), click the Apple menu and click "Shutdown".
4. Start the computer normally by holding down the power button for a couple seconds.
If this doesn't work, you may need to reinstall the operating system. On a MacBook Air, that's a bit more complicated. You'll need either the external DVD drive (an optional purchase for the Air) or another computer. Your computer manual explains how to install software on that other computer (may or may not be necessary) so that you can use that computer's DVD drive to put the disc in and reinstall Mac OS X operating system.
Good luck! Please let us know if you have further questions or problems.

Is there any free updates for my mac 10.5
Apple stopped supporting OS X 10.5. Upgrades are only $20 to 10.7.
If your Mac has 10.5, Lion, 10.7, is probably as high as you can upgrade. I would check either eBay or Amazon, as I've seen Lion disk sets selling for less than $5, then $4.95 shipping (or less on eBay).
All the best to you,

Mac book pro is currently locked to region 1,
DVD Region Codes
In order for you to view a DVD's content, the region code on the DVD and the region code for DVD Player must be the same. Your DVD drive is automatically set to a region code the first time you play a coded DVD. If the region code for a DVD does not match the current region code for DVD Player, a dialog appears for you to change the code for DVD Player.
IMPORTANT: You can set the region code for DVD Player only five times (including the original setting). The fifth time you change the code, it will be permanently set.
The following map and table indicate the code for the various regions. Some DVD discs can be played in any region, and are sometimes referred to as having region code 0. These discs can be played regardless of the region to which DVD Player is set.

The new Dell IN1910N monitor
This Monitor is native at 1366 x 768 resolution, and is Energy Star compliant. I am lead to believe this is a conflict within 10.4.1.1
Start by removing the Monitor under Go, Applications, Settings, Monitor, restart the Mac, then add the Monitor with the detection method. This may allow the Mac to detect the Monitor.
