Intel Mac :: Put G5 Screen Into It Of Same Size?

Mar 16, 2012

My white 17" intel imac screen is about 60% covered with the vertical line problem, ive tried openeing it and blowing air through it, in hopes it was just some crazy dust accumulation, and smc fan control, but its getting worse by the week.i have a g5 imac 17" with a perfect screen, but a dead HD so i dont use it,can i get my G5 screen taken out and put into my intel?id think it would be possible since their the same same size screen for the same type of imac unless the the inner connections, placement etc. is different between the two.

Mail iwill show that I have x (22 for example) mails, but instead of showing the 22 different e-mails, it lists one e-mail, with 22 copies.The only way to get the proper list back, is to rebuild the mail box. When this problem is bad, like today, I've rebuilt my mailbox 5 times in the last hour.

Intel Mac :: Why Is It So Hard To Research A Proper Replacement For SuperDrive

Mar 17, 2012

I have a late 2009 27" iMac.I am very capable of repairing my own machine. I replaced the HD over the holiday break without a glitch. My struggle is my SuperDrive needs replacing.It will no longer burn dual layer disks. So, I thought it would be simple to find a replacement and get one ordered.The names of drives don't really help shoppers shop by brand, etc. Mine is a "HL-DT-ST DVDRW  GA11N". Nice. Try googling that...Some say that name relates to an LG brand drive, while others clearly don't agree. How is an end user supposed to replace such a part if trying to find an exact match it is so difficult? Also, there have been so many others with failed drives that I really don't want to buy a used one, as I'm sure it too would fail; however, general internet serches don't give me many options for new. Perhaps that is because I still don't know the true brand of the existing "turd" that is in my Mac.I'm tired of looking and not seeing much out there. You would think there would be clear options or ways to shop for an "upgraded and compatable" drive.

Intel Mac :: Why Is Total Size Of Two Partitions Not Same As Hdd Size

Mar 19, 2012

I have an iMac with a 500 GB hard disk. Currently I have two partitions on it. According to Disk Utility one partition is 266 GB in size, the other one 200 GB. That makes a total of 466 GB --> 34 GB missing.Previously I had a Bootcamp-Windows partition of about 30 GB, but I erased it using Disk Utility. However, it seems that the space is still missing.What could be the explanation for this, and how can I get this space back?

Intel Mac :: Login Goes To White Screen And Then Back - Constant Cycle

Jun 3, 2012

When I turn my computer on, a gray bar must be filled (takes about 20 mins) before it goes to the login page. Then, when I log in with the corrct password, the screen abruptly turns white like the startup white page for about 5-10 seconds (time varies each time) and then goes back to the login page where it will happen again and again. This all started when I banged my mouse and it stopped working and I held down the power button to turn off the computer and then hit it again to turn it on.

MacBook Pro :: Effect Of Screen Not Stretching To Full Size Of Screen

Jun 8, 2012

I just purchased a 24" dell monitor to use with my macbook Pro. My Mac does not give me the option of selecting the screen resolution that the Dell monitor says it has (1920x1080). It only allows for 1600x900 at max. This has the effect of the screen not stretching to the full size of the screen.

Mac Pro :: No Proper Sleep Mode Running OS X

Jul 4, 2009

Everytime my MacPro goes into sleep mode (either from activity for from me manually putting it there) it immediately clicks awake. Strangely, when I'm booted into Vista, it sleeps like a baby. Is there a way to figure out what is triggering this? I have a few wireless devices plugged in (mouse, keyboard, display) and bluetooth is off (I'd read that bluetooth headsets are a common culprit).

Windows On Mac :: Won't Work With Additional Partition / Enlarging BootCamp Partition

Aug 31, 2010

So my iMac came with a 1TB hard drive and I installed Windows 7 x64 but only gave it some 93GB. I have a two-prong question:

Can I add a third partition to my drive after I partition for BootCamp? My main partition ("Macintosh HD" by default) is over 900GB large and I'd really like to cut that up into 2x450GB, for example, in addition to the 93GB BootCamp partition.

Second, once partitioned, is it possible to resize the BootCamp partition to make it bigger after it has been set up?

Windows On Mac :: Need Proper Drivers For Vista Enterprise RTM

Nov 18, 2006

I have a few issues with device support I thought I ping this community about:

1) Wireless Adapater doesn't show up in Device Manager (and doesn't work of course)
2) iSight, Network Controller and Performance counters all have (i) issues in Device Manager (update driver online doesn't work)
3) Resolution maxes out at 1280x800 (me thinks this is because it thinks the monitor is a generic PnP monitor)

Any ideas on where to get the proper drivers? I did the bootcamp stuff using the latest and greatest with the new MacOS.

Intel Mac :: Default Font Size In Lion?

Mar 25, 2012

Any way to increase this?  With my screen at full resolution the print is very small and gives me headaches very quickly, so I have to set it to 1920x1080.  I switched to Imac for processing photographs, so the advantage of a good quality screen is somewhat wasted.  Also, at the lower resolution, the print is not so sharp.

Intel Mac :: External Hard Drive Size Choice?

May 21, 2012

I am having issues with my iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 (Random freezing up).  I took it to the local Apple Store and an associate suggested I back up my hard drive before bring it in for diagnosis.  He suggested a 2 TB external drive but others have told me that is way too large.  I have heard everything from nothing larger than a 500 GB drive and even one self proclaimed computer wizzard says I can get by with a 10 GB thumb drive.  What is the right size and if it is a 1 or 2 TB drive, why do I need such a large one.

Mac Pro :: Blu Ray Drive Unresponsive With Disc - Need Proper Drivers

Jun 26, 2010

Recently purchased a Samsung DVDWBD SH-B083L Blu Ray Optical Drive for my Mac Pro, second bay. I have the 2.26 Nahalem Mac, 8-Core. This drive is unresponsive with Blu Ray discs. It plays regular DVD fine, but nothing with Blu Ray. I believe I need the proper drivers but not sure. Does the drive need formatted? How do you do this? After searching the web, I can't seem to find Mac drivers for this drive. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, maybe they are not there.

Software :: Safari - Finding Stability When Enlarging Text?

Jan 16, 2010

In Safari (4.0.4), if you are in the middle of a website that covers several pages and you enlarge the font, the text you are reading can shift off-screen.

If you do this in Firefox (3.5.7), the text that you are reading remains where it is.

The Firefox behaviour makes sense.
