Reminds me of my iTunes a while back...
What lead up to that?
Did you get it to go away?
woah, that's insane, do you have any idea what caused that?? I hope it changes back for ya
Had a similar problem in Mail, MS Word, etc
Turned out to be duplicate fonts that had been installed by Office 2004.
1) I'm assuming a simple reboot would fix the issue...? A bit gets flipped by a cosmic ray, things get weird sometimes for no apparent reason.
2) I noticed your dock is transparent. Are you running a bunch of haxie sorts of programs? I'd think that sort of thing could potentially affect the system from time to time.
Did a restart fix the problem?
I had that problem once too and a simple reboot made it go away. I assumed that it was a memory problem since I am currently running with only 512MB, but that was just a guess.
whoah first time if seen that
does it happen a lot/
I had that problem with my PB... It turned out to be a bad stick of memory. The memory hardware test failed.
Never seen anything like that.
My Windows PC does some pretty weird stuff sometimes. Sometimes I'll open up iTunes, and everything is black. I have to minimize and maximize the program to get things to look right.
Well, see Roxio in the background?
I was burning a DVD at the time. Right when the DVD finished burning, all the problems went away.
Perhaps it was just using an ass-load of ram or something.
And yeah, the transparent dock is the "Cleardock" hack...though it's the only thing I use of the sort.
The duplicate fonts by Office caused problems for me too. Delta force BHD multiplayer looked borked on the game selection.
...man, I need to quit visiting Apple's website. Every time I look at the new eMac specs and compare them to mine, it's very disheartening...Radeon 9200 vs. 7500...yikes...PC2700 vs. PC133....yikes...and jeez...twice the amount of L2 cache.
Man, games work pretty well on this machine--I can only imagine how much better they'd work on the new model...
Buddy at work had a similarly appearing happening in M$ Word...restart fixed it and it has not happened since...odd.
Yeah, I've had this a coupla times on iTunes windows too - it's nothing major.
The first pic is just weeeeird tho, it's amazing how/what ram can screw up..
