    I have a intel white Macbook white and I just upgraded to Snow leopard. A few weeks after upgrade it works ok for a while then suddenly I opened my iTunes and clicked the iTunes button on the taskbar and the application quits unexpectedly. After a day it happens to each and every applications even internet browser, it only happens if I do anything with the taskbar, if i stick with the windows of it nothing will happen and some application won't even run. The dock is also not there anymore. I have been having this about a year now with no problems, until now! help me please...:)

    Macbook specs:
    Snow Lepoard v1.6.0
    Intel core 2 duo T8300 2.4GHz
    2GB DDR2 SDRAM 667 MHz
    Intel GMAX3100 144 MB VRAM

    EDIT: I have a windows vista home premium bootcamp OS which only have 1 GB of free space left. The leopards hard drive has about 20 GB left. If you guys have been having the same problem or have a solution please, i mean PLEASE POST IT AS A REPLY!!! I really need this laptop for schooL!!!!

    Try repairing permissions.

    Then give up, back up, and install 10.5 because Leopard is actually stable, unlike Snow Leopard.

    Install the 10.6.1 update and see if it continues.

    Sorry but I don't have the Leopard CD and to download the update, you won't believe how slow is the internet in my place and could take half of my sleeping time! which is the only time the internet goes, well faster than any other time...

    Then your other option is to reinstall everything.

    Do you have the disks that came with the machine? I think Apple puts their Hardware Test utility on the Installation DVD now. If you have it, pop it in, reboot the machine and hold the "D" key until you see the Apple logo.

    Run the Extended Test. I'm thinking there may possibly be an issue with the hard drive or memory. Not terribly likely, but you never know. :)

    Well I'm gonna search for the CD. This macbook at first was my brother's but then he got a brand new 15" macbook pro and gave his white for me!! :( either the CD is with him or he lost it cause I don't have it with me. In the meantime i still want to know if people have a solution to something similar like this or even exactly the same problem...

    You either have a hardware problem or a bad install.

    So, I take it the MB is out of warranty and you want them to continue to fix it for free?

    Okay I once have a keyboard problem with another macbook which the keyboard won't work, I told them that i was a total beginner with macs and don't know anything about it (which at that time wasn't very true, i was trying to test these dudes) and they said "looks like something IS wrong with ur keyboards buttons or things like that then I said "Why don't we try inserting this CD that came out of the box and reinstall the stupid driver" then we tried, it works and his face was like :eek: hehe i guess it does works!

    Not that your reply had anything to do with my question, but you took it to them when you could have fixed it yourself?

    your sorta drifting away from your own cry for help here.
    I see the only solutions are:
    1- try your hardest to find the original disks that came with the macbook to do hardware tests/re-installs etc etc. even if it means hassling your brother or wotnot.
    2- take it to an apple store, and see what they can do. If its under warranty then you should be ok. If not, then its up to you if you want to pay them to fix it or not.
    3- do not come to a mac message board and start asking for help, and then go off on a tangent about something else without even trying what we are advising you do.
