Intel Mac :: Increase Memory From 4GB To 8 Or More

Feb 15, 2012

I just bought my mac last month, and was thinking about down the line increasing the memory from 4GB to 8 or 16. But when I looked on Amazon, all I could find was memories and in the reviews everyone was talking about Macbooks, not iMacs. Could I use the same memory? 

Here's my system information, if it helps: Processor  2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory  4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b) and:    Model Name:          iMac  Model Identifier:     iMac12,1  Processor Name:          Intel Core i5  Processor Speed:     2.7 GHz  Number of Processors:          1  Total Number of Cores:          4  L2 Cache (per Core):          256 KB  L3 Cache:          6 MB  Memory:          4 GB

Info:
iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011)

Mac Mini :: Increase Memory To Run Sibelius 7?

Mar 29, 2012

I'm running my rather oldish Mac Mini with original 2GB memory, version 10.6.8 and have loaded Sibelius 7 onto it.  Whilst I've not got into using full orchstral scores yet, would it be worth me upgrading the memory in readiment?  If so, what memory should I upgrade it to and who should I go to for the memory? 

I'm also experiencing the "disk was not ejected properly" message which is very frustrating and it follows a recent upgrade to the above mentioned version.

PowerPC :: How Increase Memory On 10GB Imac G3?

Oct 25, 2008

Hi there, a couple of easy questions I hope.

What is the simplest was to increase the memory on a 10GB Imac G3. 9.7GB are used up and there isn't much I can delete to free up space. It is a friend's computer, she is not mac savvy.

Also, I am considering rebooting the system as there is an account on there with a forgotten password and the original administrator password is long forgotten. What would be the best way to go about doing this? I have 10.4 os discs, with extra memory would this work ok?

Thanks in advance.

I have a unibody Macbook 2.4 with 4GB RAM, running the latest version of Leopard (10.5.5). In activity monitor, I see each process has uses virtual memory of over half a gig, with a total VM size of over 40GB. Is this normal? Is all this virtual memory eating space on my hard disk?

MacBook :: Will Snow Leopard Increase Memory Capacity On The Unibody MacBooks?

Mar 6, 2009

We all know that you could never have enough memory in our computers, so I have a fairly simple question to ask. When OS 10.6.0 comes out a.k.a. Snow Leopard, will all the Intel Core 2 Duo machines have an increased ram capacity. It looks more and more everyday as if 4GB is becoming a standard in machines and all across the board (Dell,Hp,Apple) computer these days are handling 8GB of ram with ease. So does anybody know if when Snow Leopard comes out, will there be a potential for my MacBook to contain 8GB of ram.

Intel Mac :: RAM Extension Possible And Will It Increase Performance

Mar 19, 2012

I have an Intel-based iMac 9.1 bought three years ago. Originally it had 2GB RAM, which I soon expanded to 4 GB.I'm currently running Snow Leopard, and I'm considering an upgrade to Mountain Lion. However, I fear this upgrade would be too much for my Mac to run smoothly.I wonder if I could add another 4 GB RAM, and more important, if I would experience any sensible improvement in performance.  I have read that sometimes more RAM is useless because your computer simply can't use it completely, so would it be useful in my case?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1)

Intel Mac :: Increase Free Space On Startup Disc?

Jun 5, 2012

I've backed up all the contents of my computer to a 1TB external hard drive connected by USB (LaCie Porsche). Time Machine is working perfectly with it! Now, I want to erase lots of files from the startup disc or do whatever I need to do in order that I might have way more available memory on the startup disc.

Intel Mac :: How To Increase Font Size In Printing Document From Webpage "print" Link

Apr 10, 2012

The website where I pay bills online has a hot link that says "print" and when I click on it, the printout is in a teeny tiny font. 

The document that I print after paying each bill is the confirmation of the payment transaction.  But it's almost too small to be read without a magnifying glass. 

I can't find where or how to increase the font size of the printout.   Firefox preferences doesn't include any sort of font size preference to choose from;  and my printer application in Settings doesn't list font sizes to choose from or to set as my default size.     

PageSetup allows me to choose a paper size, but not a font size.  

My computer is an iMac G5;  MAC OSX  10.6.8 My printer is a Canon MX850  

Info:
iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Printer is Canon MX850

Intel Mac :: Can't See Memory Stick

Jun 10, 2012

My company started to use encryption software on our computers in work. They use PeeCee, I have an iMac 3.2GHz Intel. I bought a 16GB Tough N Tiny Verbatim Memory Stick.The encryption software used was TrueCrypt as you can use it both on Mac and PeeCee.  The problem is I can see my memory stick on a PeeCee but not on my Mac. The IT is indifferent to my issue. He reformatted the stick a number of times. Says it comes up on the Mac in his workshop, however, it doesn't come up on every Mac computer in work. And more importantly it doesn't come up on my Mac.  

I have reformatted to FAT32, reformatted to Mac, given it to the IT guyS!!, updated all software on all computers, I've used terminal to locate it, I've used Disk Utility to locate it. is it my Mac's fault (other memory sticks come up), is it my sticks fault (it did work once, and works on all PeeCee and some Macs), should I burn it and buy a new one (theres nothing of any importance on it?

Info:
iMac 3.2 GHz Intel Core i3, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
