    I know some people think it's useless but verifying/repairing permissions/disk might help to solve your problems or at least identify them. Trashing preferences could also help. If they don't help then as a last resort a reinstall of Garageband.

    You need to run disk utility. It won't let you repair your disk (you need the install disc for that) but you can verify. If it identifies a problem then you have to repair. Permissions you can do.

    To run Disc Utility, go to:

    Macintosh HD>Applications>Utilities>Disc Utility.

    Once there, follow the instructions to Repair Permissions and or verify/repair your HD.
