  • Where can I find a new iPhoto, my iPhoto was damage when I updated.

    I usually update the software, when the 'machine' say med to, but the last time I've updated, it did not subsequently. The other iLife program worked, but not iPhoto.

    Then I tried a remodeled, because I used it every day. But I can find just the updates, and it does not work because iPhoto nye I s damage. What can I do to get a new one?

    Just update to OS X Mavericks (10.9.5)?  Then, you need to update to iPhoto 9.5.1. But this update is no longer available as an update. It was sold only as a version of the AppStore. Apple has stopped the development of iPhoto. This will depend on the version that you currently have, if you can update all iPhoto.

    What version of iPhoto currently installed? He's looking for bar like that?

  • Satellite A300-1GN - where can I find a new display driver?

    Hello to you all.

    I bought last year, Toshiba Satellite A300-1GN, which has ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 VGA mode. I searched on the ATI site for new drivers, but there is no driver for my graphics card. I only found drivers for ATI Radeon 3650 HD, which is not marked as MOBILITY.

    Can someone help me with this problem?


    Yes, that's normal that you can t find the drivers of mobility on the ATI Web site because they are designed only for cards of office.

    But why do you need a new display driver? You may notice a problem with it?
    Normally, you can get all the drivers on the Toshiba site: > support & downloads > download drivers

  • How do to get the documents after the computer has been infected by a virus and wiped


    My laptop works most completely and there was a humming noise whenever I tried to start. I learned that the laptop was corrupt. I was informed by the customer service to clean the laptop. In doing so, all parameters resumed those available at the time of the purchase in 2008.

    How can I recover all my documents, pictures, etc.?  I take the laptop to a computer technician to help with this.

    Can also advise you how to make a backup of all items stored on my laptop please.

    Kind regards


    Wiping the phone clean and restore to factory condition as advised by "customer service" (that may be), you actually deleted all the files that were on the computer. Recovery, even by a specialized at great expense data recovery company will be at best fragmentary.

    I'm moving your question to the forum space Windows for system repair and recovery, where it is possible that you may receive some additional tips, but I think that you can simply cut your losses at this point. If there is a hardware problem that caused the initial symptoms, it is likely that you will face more questions and data loss unless you get the hardware repaired/replaced.


  • On the right side of the br5owser, there is a scroll bar, the scroll bar is not no matter what a contrast and is almost invisible, can't find it?

    Have seen other issues similar to mine and they can be on the same issue, but they say that the scroll bar disappears, in fact, it's still there but almost invisible. Try to click on it without knowing the exact location to cause the uncontrolled scrolling page. Other issues advised people to restore their browser by default, but that did not help at all. Had this same problem for about 6 of the latest versions of firefox, all say in the 1930s versions. I tried adding contrast high Windows as an experiment, but that did not help at all either. Been trying help for awhile and just now decided to ask myself a question as the other speakers may have given or answerers may think it is resolved.

      In searching through help files it has led me to find a space based theme for the browser that I enjoy, but does not solve issue of course, so... all is not lost. Took a jpg of the image of the browser that shows the issue and am trying to upload it but looks like it is stuck in upload mode. Ugh "high speed" , anyhow maybe it uploaded and is not showing, the bar on the right is about 3/4 of the way down the side if you can see it, almost invisible.


    Thank you
    Discovered it was my own question of system, but had to talk with others, before I realized how in the absence of mind my question was. Old system had control of contrast on the screen, and they have been set to 4 digits off the coast of 50 / 100. I wouldn't think that little would make a difference, because it doesn't have in all the other use of the browser, but he did. So was my system, actual physical hardware settings. Sorry for wasting your time but thanks much for all of your thoughts.
