Onthaal aan Apples's Besprekingen.
(Welcome to Apples's Discussions. )
Dank. I' blij m kon ik helpen.
(Thanks. I'm glad I could help.)
Ik heb die twee files ook uit die map gehaald....maar moet ik die nu weer terug zetten??
Nope. Zij werden bespaard enkel incase zij behoefte opnieuw schrappen hen zo enkel waren.
(Nope. They were saved just incase they were need again so just delete them.)
Buz, you are big help to all us! Thanks.
I tried 10 times, not working.
Now I'm missing folder Audio in My boot drive/Library/preferences/
I deleted this folder as one of users recommended.
Deleted cashes verified and fixed permissions on my boot drive.
May some how I need to give access "go to my mac"?
Its there ... and it's not that I don't have any sounds at all, they just revert by default to internal speakers on all restarts.
O.K. If the sound is working then coreaudio is active but reverts to default on reboot. This probably is due to deleting the wrong folder you said in this post ...
here is an "Audio" folder in the Library file. I deleted that folder and never got a request for my password at the deletion; and the same thing happened on the re-start. Is it possible that I need to go into the "Users" library folder?
A password isn't required if you have Admin Rights. The only Audio folder that should be deleted was this one ... /Library/Preferences/Audio.
If these 2 folders are missing ...
... open the Audio MIDI Setup app located in the Utilities folder but as jofu01 pointed out, make changes only if it's needed. When you close this app, these two folder should be recreated.
I could send you a screen shot of the activity monitor line for coreaudiod it will help.
I just posted one here ...
Thanks for your time and patience. I don't think it has anything to do with the audio folder (which I restored from time machine when it did not work).
Going all the way back to the beginning of this issue. I don't have an audio folder in my preferences folder -- (your boot up drive)/Library/Preferences/Audio -- and am missing the following two files:
(your boot up drive)/Library/Preferences/Audio/com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist
(your boot up drive)/Library/Preferences/Audio/com.apple.audio.SystemSettings.plist
I am at a total loss.
I am at a total loss.
O man, I know how you feel but just take a deep breath & relax. I'll make it easy for you, step by step. First we need to do a clean install of SL on your Mac.
Because your previous post said ...
I first installed SL on my own as an upgrade. I had real terrible issues and it had to go to the Apple Store where they did an erase and install.
... you have two chooses.
1) Take it back & have them do it again.
2) Re-install it yourself.
If you paid the Apple Store do this, select #1. But I suggest #2. You'll learn & understand more by doing it yourself and as I explain each step, you'll see where the problems are coming from and the reason why.
Let me know.
Okay Buzz, I'm now starting to feel like I know nothing about my machine and OS whatsoever; despite having worked with Macs since the late 1980s.
When you use the term "clean install" do you mean "erase and install?"
If so, I think that I'll suffer through this issue until Apple releases an update that corrects the problem. I have been re-installing software and restoring files now since before SL's release -- a failed hard drive caused me to have to restore stuff; then twice the issues with SL have also caused me to have to restore stuff.
Therefore, if completely starting from scratch is in your opinion the only way I can successfully overcome this issue, I'll avoid the inconvenience of the agonizing re-building and endure the inconvenience of chaning my sound settings evertime I boot up.
Please advise ...
