Please go to the Apple logo on the upper left of the screen, go to About This Mac (DO NOT Select More Info), and tell me the Version (under Mac OS X), the Processor and the Memory, it is all right there.

Ok I want you to check some things that may or may not be affecting the situation. I am required to post any procedure as an Answer even if it is just a diagnostic test, so please ignore the Rate to Finish box and Reply to Expert after you have tried that.

Restart the computer then immediately hold the Command and R keys to boot to Recovery HD partition, when it boots select the Disk Utility and then select Continue. Then in Disk Utility select Macintosh HD in the left column and then select Verify Disk on the right. If that is OK in green type then select Repair Permissions. If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair Disk, then if successful Repair Permissions.

Thanks for that but all those suggestions didn't work. Although this did:

Thanks for your help though.



I didn't say that would work I said we needed to check that first. Permissions problems can cause that too. I would have suggested what you just did after that. Great glad you fixed it.
