I've recently installed a Crucial M500 512 GB SSD into my 21.5" 2011 iMac. I've done this to quite a few iMacs, and am well aware that some have a temperature sensor on the factory-installed hard drive. This one, however, did not, and now that the SSD is installed, I'm getting constantly running fans.
The fans run whether it's booted from the internal SSD, an external FireWire HD, or even if it's sitting in Target Disk Mode or on the Boot Options screen, so I feel like it's hardware-related.
I just brought a brand new IMac today but could not connect the internet with the cable though the cable does work with other computers. Do I have to change the settings or .....? Or its the problem of the jack?
I recently bought an iMac and I was wondering why installation disks are not supplied. If a re-install is necessary, how can it be achieved without the original installation disks? or is there a new way of achieving this.
Need to purchase a powerful Desktop computer to run large datasets in STATA, SAS, and R. This would hopefully last me for a few years. I'm considering purchasing the iMac 27 inch model, and upgrading all the RAM and hard drive space to max outthe specifications. Is this a better option than purchasing a lower end Mac Pro?
I have an IMac from 2007 and MBP from 2011. They are mirror images both running latest version of Lion
I back up the iMac to a three year old OWC 500GB external HD with ultra ATA drive. I was backing up the MBP to a similar device. Both machines connected via USB 2 cable. I use CCC to perform backups.
I recently got a new WD My Book 2TB external device that is USB 3. I use it to backup the newer MBP. I have noticed that the backup takes longer with the new drive. I didn't expect the new drive to take longer. Is there some overhead when using a USB 3 device to a USB 2 machine that causes backups to take longer than with a USB 2 Ext. HD?
I want to hook up a second display to my new intel imac--what cable do i need to use?? I have bought 4 now and they are not the right ones. I am trying to connect a 17 inch apple LCD display as a secondary screen for my imac. my goal is to use the imac for vocal recordings ( already set) and the 17 inch for script reading in my vocal booth.
I was wondering how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:Three Ethernet Cables Now how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? Also, I do not want to use CDs and have no CDs that came with the computers. I want to put Xubuntu on the eMac and Debian on the iMacs and erase the rest of the Hard Drives. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4 in my Signature.
I have a G4 in my living room and my old PowerMac 7300 in my bedroom. If I want of use either one to go online I have to disconnect one to connect the other. I cannot connect both at he same time. I use broadband cable from Cable Vision in New York. I was told about a router. Can anyone give me advice on the name of good router and whether on not it will slow down the access speed on the internet?
a Cable that DEF transfers audio over to the tv? Also here is my macbook pro model. Does it do Audio? Build 10FS69. Someone said there is a belkin one, is that right? Also, I just bought one from Monoprice and that f'in cable doesn't work
I have multiple problems: a. When I connect a cable to the internet, i am unable to directly login to the internet. I need to go the ISP site, login and then it connects me. I have tried to create some network connections which are not letting me connect directly without requiring a password. PLease note that I have provided the login id and password in the network preferences and created it but unable to login in.
b. Please also let me know how to delete all prior network settings.
I am new to apple and hence only capable of system menu driven capabilities.
I have a Mac Pro with an optical line in. I bought a cable and connected it to the Mac Pro, but the receiver(where I want to plug the line in) is old and only received optical. Is there some sort of adapter that would convert the connect that doesn't cost $200? I was able to connect an analog cable from the front of the mac pro's headphone jack into the back of the receiver, but the sound isn't really the greatest.
I'm trying to connect my mid 2011 iMac to my tv. I have a thunderbolt to hdmi cable that I purchased. I connected the thunderbolt port to the iMac and connected the hdmi port to the tv. I turned on both devices and the tv is not getting the signal.
Guys, I have touched on my iMac 27 on the USB cable and I have got an electric current passing over me. My feet were naked. When I got my shoes back the problem gone. Is this normal? Is it safe for my iMac and external devices?
I'm using a Late 2010 27" i5 iMac and a Late 2009 15" MacBook Pro. I'm going to reformat and reinstall the iMac this weekend but need to grab all my Music/Documents (you know the drill) from it. Last time I did this, I did it over a 100mbps network, needless to say it was absolutely horribly slow. So, today I'm going to pick up a cheap-ish firewire cable and target my laptop as a disk using target disk mode.
Which type of Firewire cable do I need to buy? It's either a 4-pin or 6-pin choice, no 9-pins available at the shop I intend to visit. I have no idea what the difference is between them - hardware is definitely not my game. Both ports look like this (taken from Apple's docs, Firewire 800):
watch Tv on my New Imac 21.5 (2012) with thunderbolt port.My set top box has HDMi out. I need to connect HDMI ( from Cable Box) to thunderbolt ( On Imac)I have learned that this can be done by single coverter cable = HDMI to Mini display cable (Thunderbolt port will accept Mini diplay Input, they say) will it work > how about the audio?
I have an iMac and a MacBook. The iMac hardrive won't boot so I am trying to get files off of it by connecting it to the MacBook via FireWire. After holding down T and booting up the iMac I don't see the drive on the MacBook. I only see the drive in disk utilities.
