Intel Mac :: It Won't Boot, Solid Black Screen, Solid White Light?

May 21, 2012

My White iMac 24" won't boot up anymore.I noticed he was running slow lately and in the browser he crashed regularly so I need to reboot.Using the power button I have to shut him down and reboot again, only, the last time, he refused to boot up.Instead I got a solid black screen, and a solid white power light at the front... When booting the only thing I hear is a little buzz and then, nothing... Several support forums said this wasn't very good and it might be the last breath of my iMac. Trying a few things, hoping they would bring him back to life couldn't help:

- Power on with "c" kept down

- power on with control+option+p+r was something I read

- Power on with "shift" kept down 

nothing would work.

MacBook Pro :: Its Displaying A Solid Color Screen

Apr 29, 2012

I am having more issues with my MacBook Pro and it's really starting to irrate me, because I know if I take it to the Apple Store they aren't going to do anything about it. But anyways, lately my screen has been turning all kinds of colors. For example I'll be watching a video on YouTube and all of a sudden my screen will go solid white. And the only way to fix it is the restart by holding down the power button. The second time it happened it turn black. And each time it happens a different color appears. So far I've had white, black, blue, purple, green, and red.

Mac :: Macbook Pro Screen Hinge Options - Solid State Hard Drive And 4GB Of Ram

Mar 20, 2010

Iv had my macbook pro for probably a little bit under two years, I bought it when i started college and I am currently finishing my second year. I cannot complain about the performance at all as I have it upgraded to a solid state hard drive and 4GB of ram and the machine is a beast but some physical aspects of it do bother me a little bit. When living in the dorms last year it was hard to keep the machine in top shape especially when I had no idea where my desk was under the pile of GROSS in the room :P, thankfully I live in an apartment now.Anyways the problem that bothers me the most is the monitor hinge. I have seen this on a few laptops after a few years but basically when the LCD is open i can tap it lightly from behind and it will shake in a way it did not when it was first bought. It seems like it is a bit lose either right around the LCD or in the hinge area. I do not mind spending a few bucks and I am very good with my hands and computers in general, currently studying engineering, so I do not mind opening it up and doing some tweaks. Is there anything i can buy to improve this with or tutorial I can read on improving it? I would imagine this is a problem that would affect alot of people with this model of macbooks and as I never really did anything to cause this.

Software :: Mac Lockup - Go To Solid Black Screen

Mar 26, 2009

Usually when playing an online game called "Marble Blast Online" (via [URL])my mac will lockup and go to a solid black screen. The computer will not respond to any keys pressed, front row remote, mouse, basically anything. The only way to get out is to hold down the power button on the back of the mac to force shut down the computer. I've spoken to the game developers, and they say that it is probably defective hardware because all the other mac users seem to be able to play the game fine. If this is so, which hardware do you think it would be? Something serious such as the motherboard, or simply a video card? How could I go about getting this fixed or replaced- take it to the genius bar?

IMac :: Screen Turns Solid Colors And Freezes?

Sep 28, 2009

I have a 3.06 GHz, 4 GB, iMac running 10.6.1. and I have a weird problem: while I was running Windows 7 under Boot Camp, during a simple task, my screen suddenly turned a solid shade of gray. Having no other option, I held the power button, turned off the computer, and turned it back on.

When I booted back to OS X, it happened again immediately upon opening iTunes. This time the color was solid black. Concerned, I turned off the computer, waited a moment and booted it back up in Safe Mode, where I currently have no problems whatsoever. From Safe Mode I repaired my disk permissions, cleared my caches, and zapped the PRAM while restarting my computer back into normal mode. Unfortunately the problem persists, this time my screen turning a solid shade of dark purple.

I'm going to call Apple Care in the morning, but has anyone heard of an issue like this? I searched the forums for a solution, but wasn't sure what terms to search for.

Mac Pro :: Previously Rock Solid Crashed And Now Will Not Boot-up Past A Screen Of Black?

Apr 8, 2012

Yesterday the trusted and loyal MacPro froze and on reboot kept going straight to a screen which looks like a modern art collaboration between Kasparov, a robot and the ghost of Jackson Pollock. You can see the artwork in the pictures below. Lion has recently been installed. Main programmes used are Logic and Final Cut Pro. I have taken the machine apart and dusted everything down, talked sternly to the ciruit boards, offered bribes to the CPU and even played it Salsa - I figured that this works in breaking the spirits of kidnappers, so it may work with the hard disk. There is a suspicion lingering that the computer was aware of a make or break week of editing coming up and decided to stop working in protest (it is getting on a bit), so I let it rest for a bit before trying another reboot.

OS X :: Macbook Pro Gets Black Screen While Using Word And Msn?

Oct 17, 2010

Just yesterday I was using my Macbook Pro - with Word and MSN in use - until it gave me a black screen. (Good thing Word auto-saved.)

The screen wasn't dimmed and the fan (or whatever was running) was still running. So I held down the power button to shut it down. When I turned it on again - and everything was okay - I thought it might have been the battery but yeah, it doesn't explain why the fan was still running.

It's fairly new. I don't play games and I rarely watch anything on it. I'm also very protective of it and don't download much... Which confuses/worries me on why a black screen would appear.

So does anyone want to share some insight on why this happened? Is it some 'normal' thing that eventually happens, because I've been looking around and found information with regards to this black screen problem and the Macbooks of those people seemed fine..

How do I open a small window on my screen that allows me to type in a word, and that word is then highlighted every time it appears in the text on the page I'm in? I've seen it done before. It makes searching an internet wall much easier when your looking for something particular.

MacBook Pro :: Solid State Or Standard HDD?

Jun 19, 2012

I am going to get the 13'' MBP, i7, 8gb unit. The question I have is that should I stick with the standard hard drive that comse with the unit (750 GB), or should I upgrade to the solid state drive (desiring 256 gb)? 

1. What are the advantages to a solid state?

2. Is it worth the money (trying to stay under $2000 with shipping and taxes) 

On my current macbook I have a 250 GB HDD, and I have only used about 100 GB. Size is not the biggest issue, more about speed for me. I am a speed junkie, and I want my computer to perform to it's highest ability. I don't use any heavy intense application, or I am not a computer gamer. Although I know that these are the primary uses, I want the computer I am going to buy to last me several years and to maintain its speed when I use application. I also highly doubt I will use any where close to 200 gb.

MacBook Air :: Updating To Solid State Drive.Is It Possible?

Jan 16, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to update to a solid state drive without having to give up a kidney through Apple.

I found a 64GB solid state drive for $140 from an online store. Does the Air need a special hard drive, or any generic one will do? And if any of you have a solid state drive what is your experience with it?

Mar 29, 2010

Mac and wondering to get 128 Solid State or not?
For those that bought it, do you regret spending money, was it as good of an improvement as you thought?

For those that didn't buy it, do you regret and went ahead and did it on your own?
This will be replacing my desctop, it will be used for everything, but not work just for everything and anything

MacBook Pro :: Just Purchased A 128 Gig Solid State Drive?

Jun 7, 2010

I just purchased a 128 gig Solid State Drive at frys the other day $299. I read a bunch of reviews on SSDs but never pulled the trigger because of the cost.

If anyone is on the fence go out and buy one today, the speed difference is huge. My 17 MBP is wicked fast now! Bootup times are 1-3x faster. Applications load in a flash, no more spinning beach ball. I hit pages and shazam, it's open and ready.

Anyhow, installation was a breeze, cloned drive, had to remove a bunch of stuff because i downgraded from a 500 internal to a ssd. Im not looking at replacing my SuperDrive with a regular HD to reclaim the space, ill keep music, videos and such on that.

So, it's a good buy. Just wonder what upgrading to 8 gigs of ram will do for me now. I'll let you all know next month.

MacBook :: Could A Solid State Drive Leak

May 17, 2012

Have another thread on the go regarding fluid leaking from my white MacBook. Exploring avenues outside of the mac itself now. Apple want it taken to the an apple store for immediate inspection but warned I could end up being charged for repairs due to accidental liquid damage, although I didn't damage the machine. No liquid was place around or near the machine. This was a chemical liquid.  could the solid state drive installed in the machine have leaked and caused this problem? If its still under warranty and has damaged my whole computer could they be liable to repair or replace this machine? All answer gratefully received.

Hardware :: How Fast Is The Solid State Disk (SSD) That Comes With The New MacBook

Nov 11, 2008

Has anyone found benchmarks that show the speed difference between the stock 5400 rpm drive and the 128 mb SSD upgrade on the (late 2008) macbook?

How fast boot times? Photoshop start-up times? other benchmarks?

it seems the harddisks are the main bottleneck causing computers today to feel slower than 5-10 years ago (just compare Photoshop 5.0 with CS3)

Any speed difference in loading times will be a HUGE upgrade in my opinion. So i dont mind the extra price tag.

MacBook Pro :: I'd Like To Put A Solid State Hard Drive In My 13" MBP?

Jan 7, 2011

I am considering putting a SSD in my June 2009 13" MBP. Is there any certain ones that work more easily on the macs?

Any quick useful advice anyone can give me first before buying and what to look for? I'm thinking I'd like to get a 256gb one but not sure. I'd like to find one that isn't going to break the bank but I know they're expensive, and I'm just looking for the best buy.

MacBook Pro :: Sleep Indicator Light Should Be Solid When The Computer Is On?

Jul 3, 2009

PROPOSITION: Turn the sleep indicator light to a power indicator light.

I just noticed, the sleep indicator light pulses when my MBP is in sleep, but is always completely off when it's in use. This is actually a little frustrating, as sometimes I leave my MBP idle with the screen off and the backlit keyboard off as well, and I can't tell if the thing is on or not since it's dead silent.

Also, I noticed that when I leave my MBP plugged in, idle overnight, the sleep indicator light is solid in the morning. It's definitely not indicating sleep, since the unit is on, so I'm not sure what it means.

Anyway, anyone else think the sleep indicator light should be solid when the computer is in use? How would you tell the difference between an MBP that is powered off, and closed and slipped into a backpack, from an MBP that is simply powered on but fails to enter sleep for some reason?

Is there a way to keep the light on forever, sort of like a power indicator? ALL my previous laptops have some sort of power LED just so you can at least tell it's on. It just doesn't make sense to me.

MacBook Air :: High End 2.13GHz Machine With The Solid State HD?

Jul 10, 2010

I threw in with the air. I've been a big MacBook pro and iMac user from way back, but a few days ago I finally did what I've always wanted to do, I bought an Air! The things holding me back were price and the lack of updates from Apple. But you know what? After using this machine for three days I can honestly say it is the best laptop I have ever used. I don't even know why I ever used a pro. I got the high end 2.13GHz machine with the solid state HD. So quiet (silent). So light. Amazing machine and I can never go back to using a pro. Can't wait to see what Apple have in line for the Air in the future too! The coolest thing though is that its not quite mainstream. Not like the Pro anyway. I get looks! Oh yeah, us Air users are legit.

MacBook Air :: Need Toget The 1.6 Or 1.8 Ghz / SATA Hard Drive Or Solid State?

Oct 28, 2008

I have 1st generation MBA 1.6 with 80 gig HD. (Which now I have to sell) I bought the new MB when it was released earlier this month. I found it to be a very responsive machine but took it back for either a pro with a great resolution or wait for the new MBA. I decided to get another air. I really love the weight of the machine.

Now the help I need is to (1) get the 1.6 which speed right now I find good or get the 1.8 Ghz. then the big question . . .

(2) get the SATA hard drive or spend the bucks and get the Solid State. I hear the start up time is very quick on the Solid State, but it's slower on writing to disk. I use this machine on the road when working with customers and use File Maker Pro mostly when in that situation. I am a novice compared to what I see on here so I'm asking all y'all mac experts....what would you do?
