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.

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 :: 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.

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.

Ever since I sold it here on MR and got it back, there has been a problem with my 12" Dual USB iBook G3 500MHz's screen (lord, that's a long name).

I'm trying to get it fixed up and ready to sell back to my friend as his first Mac, and I'm trying to get every problem resolved
