As the title says, I've got a 15" 1.67 GHz Powerbook. I ordered a new RAM card off OWC a while ago, and just got around to installing it now. The card specifications are as follows (taken from the order invoice): SO-DIMM 1.0GB Samsung Factory PC2700 DDR 333MHz 200 Pin SO-DIMM Module M470L2923BN0-CB3 S/N: 4150092 I opened the panel in the middle of the computer's underside, aligned and slid the card into the top slot, then pushed it down and closed the computer back up. I turned the computer on a few minutes ago, only to see that it was still only recognizing 512 mb RAM. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong, or what the deal is? On the Apple website, it lists a procedure for installing Powerbook RAM that involves removing the keyboard, which I did not do, because I don't think that applies to my model.
I recently inherited a Pismo, 400 mhz and a 6gb hard drive. Other than the tiny hard drive, the computer is in great shape and has a lot of service left in it. I was able to load Tiger on it, and it's working fine. I replaced the hard drive with a 100gb Seagate, but when I tried to format the disk,the new hard drive didn't show up during installation attempts. However, the volume was visible in the system profiler and the disk utility...I reinstalled the original hard drive, and that booted successfully so I guess that means I didn't damage the hard drive cable, which I had feared. Does anyone have an idea about this? So odd that that I could locate the drive in the disk utility but not at the installation screen.
I have a situation which seems somewhat unique to what my searches have uncovered. I have a powerbook g4 that will not recognize the install disk it came with. The version is 10.2.7
The Powerbook was working just fine with 10.4.11 when I tried to downgrade Quicktime using Pacifist. I must have done something wrong because the Powerbook turned into a brick. I was able to boot onto my tower G5 and back up all my important data, I then reformatted the drive to mac os journaled and zeroed it. The problem I am having is that when I try to boot from the original install disc I get an error on gray screen that says "You need to restart your computer" Sometimes it doesn't even get this far, it just shows the apple logo and then the screen goes buggy and the machine powers down.What I currently have at my disposal is a G5 tower running 10.4.10, three 10.3 install discs that came with the tower, a burned copy of 10.4, and the Powerbook's original 10.2.7 install disc.
I just recently installed an internal seagate ultra ata 100 80gb hd into my powerbook g4 (the old one crashed beyond use). I hear the drive spinning when I boot up the computer. However after the computer boots up with the original boot disk that came with the computer and I try to format it using disk utilities, it does NOT recognize my hard drive (e.g. the hard drive doesn't come up on the list of drives to fix).
I wonder if you can suggest something? My MBP currently doesn't recognise the printer I have (HP OfficeJet 6210, which has worked before with this computer). In fact the list of printer models under "add printer" is now empty. So it doesn't detect any printer and I can't suggest any printer for it to detect. I tried reinstalling the "printers" part of Snow Leopard but it didn't change anything. What would be the best thing to do?
I have a snowball microphone with USB connection. It was working fine until today. The light still lights up. I've tried the different switches at the back. I've restarted my system, plugged it in after I started Garage Band or before but not snowball in the system preferences or in the audio preferences of Garage Band.
I just bought this mac pro and it intermittantly will recognize its bluetooth card. it is really annoying, seeing as i use the bluetooth mouse as well as keyboard. Whenever I restart after about 10 times, I have bluetooth.
I have a white macbook. I went on holidays and when I returned,the battery had and x through it. It wasn't plugged in. I try and check the cycle count, but since it doesn't recognize the battery, it won't say.
I've started installing XP onto my iMac, and it's at the screen where it asks what partition it should be installed on. In order to select a partition, I'm supposed to use the arrow keys on my keyboard, but my keyboard doesn't seem to be recognized by the installer, as well as other keyboards I've tried. So now I can't install windows. How can I get it to work?
I Have a software installed on Power Mac G4 running Mac OS 9, this software is using a key installed on a usb dongle to launch. Now the software doesn't recongnize this usb dongle being plugged, although the MAC OS does! I have tried to reinstall the software, reinstall the OS without success , the problem persists. Does anyone pleaze have an idea where the problem could be or any useful information.
I have a Macbook Pro which is almost three years old.Applications like iLife and iWorks were installed on the computer long before there was the Mac Ap Store.These apps, and others on my computer, do not show up as Instaled in the App Store so I can't update them unless I use the old Software Update or the vendor's site.I don't want to purchase the apps again but is there any way to "register" these apps so the app store knows they are on my computer?†

my GF and a glass of Wine. Cat hits wine and wine hits MBP. The Mac shut off instantly, we acted pretty quick and mopped up and turned upside down. I then took back off and over the course of the next 5 days I have stripped it down completely including the Key board and cleaned as best as I could. I've put it all back together and it starts up, a reassuring tone rings out, then apple sign appears with a loading bar beneath, this takes a while then it reaches the Lion log in page.It still recognizes me, or rather my name as the user but refuses my password which I know is correct.The keyboard isn't backlit but keys are typing something (can't see characters, just dots).¬†Screen brightness works.No back light on keys although this may be normal at this point, not sure.¬†
My macbook doesn't recognize my new modum. I have to select it every time I log on and then comfirm the change by imputting my administrator's password. How do I get it to recognize my network as "preferred"?
a few days ago, something weird happend, my 15" macbook pro just stop recognizing the internal speakers or the headphones, just died.The icon in the menu bar is low gray and do nothing the volume buttons appear with a forbidden sign I dont know wath to do?
Have a iMac G5 with built in BT. I used it downstairs yesterday and took it back to the spare room where it usually is used. Fired it up today and I find that the BT mouse is fine BUT it ignores the keyboard. I tried; Replacing batteries. Checked that the suspect keyboard worked on my mac mini (it did). Tried my other BT keyboard on the iMac same problem. So, why does it recognise the mouse but not the keyboard? I do not have a USB Keyboard, so now I cannot Log in to fix it! I am guessing that the pairing has gone BUT surely it would simply see the keyboard as a new one and start setting it up. Something is stopping keyboards working with BT, very strange - could a loose BT module cause this? Or will I have to buy a USB Keyboard now to use my iMac?
I recently installed an LG GGC-H20L Blu-Ray and HD DVD drive into the second bay of my Mac Pro. This in itself was an absolute pain, as I had to enable AHCI for Windows Vista by using a modified mbr because I was using one of the ODD_SATA ports on the motherboard which Windows doesnt' "see" cause it runs in legacy mode. Everything there went completely fine, as now I am running in AHCI mode and I can see the LG drive and I can play CD's and regular DVD's via that drive in Windows Vista. However, the problem now is that when I insert a Blu-Ray or an HD DVD, Windows doesn't even recognize that there is media in the drive. It says there is no disc inside. When I boot in OS X, I can clearly see both the HD DVD and Blu_ray (although I can't play it or do anything with it).
Neither my imac nor my macbook recognize my Sony Cybershot DSC W150. Not only does iphoto not work, but it doesn't even show up in the finder window. The camera also does not appear to recognize that it is hooked up to a computer.
i plug my ipod into my mac via the usb port as usual, and itunes just sits there with a blank look on its face and doesnt show that a new ipod is hooked up, and therefore doesn't put any songs on my ipod.
my mac book pro is not recognizing my WD 500 GB external hardrive. I checked and double checked to make sure the external was mac compatible before I bought : and it was. It also is not recongizing an WD external hardrive I borrowed from a co-worker.¬† Here is what I have done and checked so far.¬†
- I checked to see if the externals worked on other Mac Pros( just to double check mac compatibility)-¬† they showed up on on 4 different Mac books.
- I checked to see if¬† there was something wrong my usb ports. So I incerted my 4 GB flash drive in the USB port, and then my co-workers 4GB¬† Flashdrive-¬† My computer recognized both the devices.
-¬† My computer was very full ( that is why I bought a bigger hardrive to back up my files) so¬† I thought¬† maybe there just wasnted even enough free space for my computer to recongize the devices. So I freed up 70GB of hardrive space on my mac book. - still nothing.
- I also checked to make sure¬† I had the suggested software updates to run the drive, before I bought it.¬†¬†
Lion is working perfectly and I'm having no issues. I launched the App Store app the other day and noticed under purchases that although Lion is listed as one of my purchases, the button to the right doesn't read "Installed" like my other purchases do. Instead the button says "Install". Lion already is.¬†
mobileme doesnt recognize my password in iphoto in my macbook pro, why does this happen? that is the same password for my iphone when i use it for the app store. i know the password is correct, it works everywhere else but in iphoto
I have an HP printer hardwired to my iMAC and have been sharing the printer, wirelessly through the home network, with an older Powerbook G4. I've added a third laptop (Mac Pro) which also shares the Wireless network, but can see the Printer online. I get a message that the Printer is not Online.
why the third laptop can't see the printer online?
