    While I do agree that you can carve out some free space by deleting localization files, it really sounds like you need a bigger drive. You are going to continue adding to iTunes and iPhoto, you need...

    If I understand your situation correctly, I think you should start over. There is no good reason to install Windows XP without the actual installer CD. Boot from the Mac Tiger 10.4 DVD, choose your...

    There is a heat sensor that is designed to do exactly what harryb2448 describes. It is either accurately dealing with a problem or it is screwy! Install iStat, it will give you an good reading of the...

    Music files are small enough to be automatically defragged. And if you think about it, in your situation optimizing won't do anything! Read through some of the links above, I definitely wouldn't run...

    It should be fairly simple, you definitely do not need to know or enter router numbers. The fact that you got on board to the wireless access point with the wireless password should mean you are...

    Drinking coffee is the most important part of the process, but we need more details. If you mean applying the updates that Apple rolls out to fix problems, then yes, it is easy. Go to the Apple icon,...

    Mac OS X automatically defrags.

    Having said that, there is a big difference between defragging and optimizing. Optimization of disk performance is different from...

    If your drive is so full that the Mac can't run its 'behind the scenes' disk swaps, then you do need more space. You can do that by archiving it onto another drive and deleting it. Try booting in...

    Yes, it is pretty hard to diagnose water related problems. Some itty bitty wire can short out, water evaporates, no evidence of the crime. Good luck with this!

    It says 'internal' because it is running off of an internal card, so that isn't a problem. You do not need an installation CD of any kind, that is just the glory of the Mac and its Unix roots. The...

    The fact that the iBook won't boot with the drive installed is a pretty good indication that there is something really wrong with the drive. I suppose that there is a possibility there is a problem...

    I think I disagree that market share has anything to do with virus writers. The first hacker who writes a successful OS X virus would get enormous street cred. And that has been true for the last...
