Ichat not Functioning? Try This
iChat is an instant messaging program for Mac OS X users. This application uses Jabber-like protocol and is also applicable for LAN communication. Moreover, you can also integrate Yahoo, MSN and Google Talk contacts in its pane. But some of the reports say that all of a sudden, iChat has found to be non-functional at launch. No contact list, no menu functioning, nothing, all just there is a dumb screen.
Though you may delete the iChat preferences, repair the permissions or keychain, create new accounts etc., yet the condition may still remain the same. Well, the problem could be with the core settings or language settings of the system and the other could be the conflicts with the operating system itself. So try out the following steps to solve the problem:
• Try to disable the needless languages: As Mac OS X supports many languages, so when the application gains the new localization info, the system can set it at priority. Now, if the language or localization is corrupted, the mentioned problem may arise. So turn off the Global Language packs and specific application localizations.
• Maintenance steps: Have maintenance steps like correcting the permissions and drive integrity check.
• Reinstall Mac OS X: Still with the same problem? Then, the problem could be due to some system conflicts and so reinstall the operating system.
If you step to the last mentioned cure, be sure you do care of the data within. The primary volume may have the important stuff or whole of the hard drive may be at risk on account of non-partitioned hard drive.
