How To Open A MacMini (2007 Version) To Upgrade RAM From 1GB To 2GB?

May 6, 2012

I'm assuming that a RAM upgrade is something I can do (as opposed to bringing to Apple or servicer) to install a memory upgrade, but don't see how I open the box.

Mac Pro :: Which ASD Version For Mac Pro 1.1 - 2007

Jun 6, 2010

I'm trying to service a family Mac Pro and I'm not close at all to an Apple Store. Also, the machine is not under warranty anymore. I think I have a faulty thermal sensor on the northbridge. Its giving 129C readings from a cold boot and I've already cleaned the heatshink and reapplied thermal compound. Running AHT throws an [4SNS/1/40000000: TNOH] error. Resetting the PRAM and NVRAM didn't do anything. I'm not sure if ASD can do any more but its worth a shot right? Does anyone know which version I should look for to use with this 2007 Mac Pro 1.1?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Access Shared Folder On Snow Leo MacMini From Lion MacMini

May 24, 2012

These are the two systems involved: 

Mac Mini 2006 1,1
OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
1.66GHz Core Duo; 2 GB 667MHz DDR2
Ethernet connected 

Mac Mini 2007 (1,2)
OS X 10.7.4 (Lion)
1.83GHz Core 2 Duo; 2.5 GB 667 DDR2
Connected via WiFi 


Here's what I've tried: SMB and FTP sharing is disabled on the host. After updating the operating systems on both computers as far as they can be updated, permissions were repaired, new sharing usernames were created, firewalls are disabled on host and client.

Applications :: BootCamp - Full Version Or Upgrade Version Of Windows 7?

Jun 17, 2010

In order to install Windows 7 via bootcamp, do you have to use the full version of windows or can you use the upgrade disc to install? I figured I should ask before buying another license as I have an upgrade version of Windows 7 Pro that I don't use. I do own previous versions of Windows (all of them....just like I do Mac OS).

MacBook Pro :: ExpressCard SSD Or 6GB RAM Upgrade For Late 2007?

Aug 5, 2010

I've been following many threads on Mac Rumors for a while and thought I finally post something (hopefully) useful for others and in hopes that I can get a meaningful answer. So please don't flame me if this may be a newbie question... here I go:

So I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 Ghz Late 2007 computer, equipped with a 500GB WD Scorpio Blue HD and 4Gb of RAM. What I do with this computer primarily is graphic design and editing (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Final Cut Pro, etc...) and some amature music production (Reason, Garageband, Djay...)

I've followed the 6gb/8gb RAM upgrade forum for a long while for Mac products and finally bought myself a 6GB upgrade kit from Other World Computing. My package arrived today, and I hate to admit but I'm afraid to upgrade the RAM because of the slight hit/miss ratio I heard about using it. It's usually a good thing to upgrade to something higher I know, but I read that even if I did upgrade, I would only be using about 3GB worth of memory on it and not the full 6GB. Plus, I would lose the dual channel architecture doing this... if that did make a big difference to my heavy use of RAM.

Just today I learned about ExpressCard SSD's and how they can act like a separate HD in themselves. I'm highly interested in a very economical 64GB ExpressCard I researched. They're super fast and sound like a better alternative to RAM upgrading, especially if I can only use a max of approx. 3GB of RAM on my model computer.

So after all of my gibbering and jabber, here's the question:

From your experienced perspective, what's a better option for me to take...

1) Use the 6GB RAM upgrade?

2) Buy an ExpressCard SSD and use memory intensive programs on that?

3) Use the 6GB RAM and buy the ExpressCard SSD together?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Quicken 2007 Won't Open - Not Supported

Feb 13, 2012

Just upgraded to OSx Lion 10.7 and find that Quicken 2007 won't open as Lion does not support it. Quicken advises that it does not yet have Quicken for Lion but is working on it. Meantime I am stuck as I use Quicken all the time. I am wondering if it is possible to uninstall Lion using the Snow Leopard install CD. At present, Lion is a disaster and I'd like to get rid of it and go back to Snow Leopard. Apple really screwed up with this one.

Intel Mac :: Upgrade System Software On Older Version?

May 3, 2012

I'm using an Intel iMac running OS 10.4.11.  Obviously the computer is a few years old now and I'm wondering whether it is worth upgrading the system software or time to get a new computer.  Can you guys venture any opinions as to which version of OS X I might be able to upgrade to with decent performance?  I'd rather not add any memory if that's a requirement for upgrading - in that case I'd probably just opt for a new computer.
