Desktops :: Can't Remove Screws To IMac Memory Compartment?

Oct 31, 2009

I have a 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo 20 inch iMac (early 2006). I have purchased additional memory that I want to install but when I try to remove the cross point screws holding the cover plate over the memory compartment they will not budge. I am afraid to squirt them with WD40 since I fear overspray would probably go into the memory compartment. I am also afraid to "bump" the screws by tapping the end of the screwdriver with a hamer since the shock might damage the drives. Have anyone of you had this difficulty? If so how did you solve it.

MacBook Pro :: How Do I Remove Really Tight SuperDrive Screws

Sep 8, 2010

I'm in the process of installing an Optibay in my Macbook Pro and have run into 3 really tight screws. They are the 3.3mm Philips that are used to mount the SuperDrive and Bluetooth board. The one on the Bluetooth came out easy but the other three are really tight. I've used the Philips screw drive that came with the Optibay as well as another screwdriver but none of them budge the screws.

Anyone have any tips or special method of removing those screws?

Desktops :: Acceptable Memory Configuration For G4?

Aug 17, 2009

I have a 1.24 Ghz MDD with 1 G of memory which is divided as two 256 mb and one 512 mb. I'm thinking of getting two 512 mb and removing one 256 so I can have three 512 mb and one 256 which will equal to 1.75 G. My question is if this machine will accept this configuration or will it have to be 1.5 G or 2 G? The reason I'm asking is because I saw this G4 specs in OWC website as having either 1 G, 1.5, or 2 G.

Intel Mac :: Remove Or Install Memory?

Mar 29, 2012

For an iMac 27" 3.06 GHZ (DDR3) late 2009 can I add a pair of 2x4GB RAM to the 2x2GB RAM that I already have installed (for a total of 12GB RAM)? They are matched pairs - I'm just not sure if each card has to be the same amount of RAM - in other words stick with 8GB or move up to 16GB.

Jan 20, 2010

I'm new here, but not new to the Mac world. I own an intel iMac and while I was attempting to restart it on Sunday night it went into a gray screen with the box asking me to shut and restart in several languages.

So I used my start up disk to get to the disk utility and my HD is fine so I used an external drive to install the OS on it and reboot from and reinstalled from TimeMachine (only problem is the last time I backed up was 5 months ago)Again I checked my internal drive and everything seems okay, but I cannot reboot from it. BTW, I've OS 10.6.2,
