    What does "falling out" mean. Is it rebooting? Crashing? Locking up? Need more information.

    Maybe you should get XP out of there if it is messing your system up. like the above poster mention...what exactly is it doing?

    My mac pro is falling out too, so far it's had an argument with my macbook and called my imac a dirty whore and you dont even want to see what it did to the mac mini :eek:




    I've never heard of a problem so vaguely described as to leave more people going :confused: than the OP's post. :)

    I think it's pretty obvious what he means. He's got it propped up on his window ledge, and XP has made it too heavy on one side, so it falls out. The solution is probably to turn it sideways and maybe stack some books next to it.

    c'mon guys, this is serious :) (though u guys are funny)

    no what i ment is when i'm working on either windows or mac os X (wish are both installed on different harddrives and work perfectly on their own) the computer seems to go into sleep mode, the screen becomes black, but the computer keeps on running, but i can't get it out of the sleep mode...
    the thing is i think it has something to do with windows cause it didn't happen before i installed it...
    (by the way its a dual 2.66 2 gig ram ATI1900xt)

    any idees (i tried all u guys said here ;) )

    If you have an Apple Cinema Display, try disconnecting the power to the display and reconnect it again.

    And if the problem is still persistent, I would seriously consider removing Windows and/or do a reinstall of it.
