Power Mac G5 :: Adding Second Monitor - Ports Look Different

Dec 21, 2007

I just got my dual 2ghz G5 that I bought off ebay. I love it. Anyway, it has a 64mb Radeon 9600 Pro with the two monitor ports. I plugged my 22" Samsung into the DVI port. I want to buy another identical monitor for the other port, but it looks different. I found a graphic that shows the card's ports: [URL]. The top one in the graphic is where I put the connection. The bottom one is different. Is there an adapter or something? Or since I'm using two non-Apple monitors, should I just get a new card? BTW, I just bought and installed Leopard.

Mac Pro :: USB Ports Constantly Losing Power?

Mar 22, 2012

Ive got a 2008 Mac Pro and recently Ive been experiencing some issues with its USB ports. The front usb ports have a USB antenna connected and some time later, it just loses power and I have to disconnect it and connect it  in order to make it work again. Besides that, Ive got a  USB hub connected in one of the back ports. In it, is my camera and my keyboard. After some time, it just loses power. Not at the same time than the usb antenna, but in less that an hour I have to repeat the process 2-3 times. Worth to note, that in the two back usb ports left, Ive got an external hard drive in each and I dont have problems, there are always seen in the finder.

Power Mac G5 :: USB Ports Not Working, IPod, IPhone Not Charging Or Syncing?

Dec 13, 2007

I have had an intermittent problem. Every so often (once a month), my iPhone will not connect to my computer, it does not charge, nor does it show up in iTunes. I checked out 3 different cables, and none work (cable problem eliminated), I tried 3 different iPods, none charged or showed up (iPhone and iPod problem eliminated). I tried both the front and the rear USB ports and nothing ever happens. As far as I recall, this problem just cures itself after a few days. Any idea what I need to have repaired to stop this maddening problem?

MacBook Air :: Uneven Backlighting - How To Know About It

Dec 17, 2010

My air has an interesting case of uneven backlighting especially at the edges. This is not bothering to me because I think it's a result of the very thinly made LCD, which helps this computer be so small.

Test your MacBook Air 11.6" by downloading this image and putting it in fullscreen to see if your backlighting is uneven.

MacBook :: Keeps Switching Between Internal Output And Digital Output For Sound?

Jun 19, 2012

My sound keeps turning off. When I check the settings, the output device switches randomly between Internal and Digital output. I have no idea where the Digitial Output is coming from and this started about a month again. It switches randomly and then I loose all sound for a few seconds. Sometimes it happens once then stops for a few days, other times it switches back and forth for 5 min. No idea!!!

Power Mac G5 :: Digital Input Route Through Headphone Jack Output?

Oct 30, 2007

I have my Xbox 360 sound out-putting through an optical digital cable to the digital input of my Dual 2.3ghz Power G5. My mac recognizes the signal but I was hoping I could somehow use the incoming sound to output through my headphone speaker jack on the front of my mac. Both my mac and xbox 360 use the same monitor.

I noticed it doesn't work that way. Is there a way to switch the incoming digital signal to route through my headphone port on the front of my mac? There has to be a way.

MacBook Pro :: Uneven Glass Trackpad In New System

Nov 3, 2008

I was just noticing on my shiny new unibody MacBook Pro that the glass trackpad is uneven. At the bottom left side, it's basically flush with the surrounding case. But then it dips down on the bottom right to below the surrounding case. Is this normal, and has anyone else seen the same?

MacBook Pro :: Uneven Feet On 15" Unibody

Sep 9, 2009

With the laptop open and sitting on a flat surface (granite countertop), I can press the lower left corner of the laptop down about 0.5 -1 mm and the computer wobbles a bit. It seems that the little black feet are not the same thickness all around. I am really surprised because Apple is so fanatical about having such low manufacturing tolerances... yet they somehow overlook the feet. Anyone else out there having this issue on their brand new unibody Macbook Pro? Does this go away after the feet have time to wear down a little?

MacBook Pro :: Is It Advisable To Use Uneven Memory Modules

Jul 30, 2010

I am planning to upgrade the standard 4gb of on my April 2010 Macbook Pro (the basic 2.4ghz model) to 6gb.

Over on Crucial memory suppliers they advise using two identical modules, i.e. 2 4gb sticks rather than 1 2gb + 1 4gb.

Can anyone chip in on whether this is good advise or just them trying to make a few more bucks?

For my needs 6gb should be perfect, I have a desktop already with that amount, although to be fair the desktop is 3 * 2gb modules.

MacBook :: Green Tinted Output From DVI Output

May 23, 2009

I use an external monitor with my macbook, it's a couple of years old 17" Sony TFT. I connect it to the macbook through a DVI cable into the adaptor, into the mini DVI port on the mac. About 90% of the time I do this, the second display shows the correct graphics but is tinted fluorescent green, however if I play aorund enough with the connection, it goes back to full colours. Is this something a genius could fix, or do you have any recommendations about what to do?

Mac :: Hinge Creeks While Slowly Closing Screen - When Macbook Is Closed, Screen Is Uneven?

Jul 26, 2009

I have 3 problems with my aluminum macbook and I think that they are all related and are caused by each other.1) The hinge creeks sometimes when I slowly close the screen and I'm afraid it will only get worse as this just started happening.) When the macbook is closed, the screen is uneven. The right side does not completely close and there is a gap between the base of the computer and the screen. However, the left side is just fine unless I push down on the right side then the left side just goes up and becomes uneven.

Mac Mini :: Install Uneven Pairs Of RAM In Early 2009?

Mar 27, 2009

I just bought the base model Mac Mini yesterday, and I am going to tear it open today to put in a bigger hard drive and more RAM. My question is...since I don't need the entire 4GB of RAM, I am happy with 3GB. The system has one 1GB chip in there already, so can I simply just pop in a second 2GB chip for a total of 3GB? I wasn't sure if they had to be installed in pairs or not. Is there any downside besides obviously the memory not being under Apple's warranty?

PowerPC :: Sound Volume Becomes Uneven - IBook Internal Speaker

Feb 22, 2008

I have a small issue on my iBook (G4) that's been driving me a bit crazy lately. I noticed a few months ago that when I selected a song/video on iTunes to play, I would get uneven volume output on my two internal speakers. I tried restarting iTunes, restarting the computer, etc. to no avail. In addition, sometimes this problem would not arise for a few days, and then suddenly start up again.

I then dug up the program Audio MIDI Setup and saw that the sliders were uneven . Once I slid them back together, I thought I had solved my problem. Nope! It came back, and I even saw that if I opened up Audio MIDI Setup right after the computer turned on, the sliders would be skewed even before opening iTunes or Safari or some other program that used audio.

I've come accustomed to manually balancing the volume output, but the irregularity of this problem occurring frustrates me. Attached is a screenshot of Audio MIDI Setup with the issue--note the Audio Output sliders.

MacBook Air :: Add More Usb Ports

Feb 15, 2012

I have the microsoft arc mouse and keyboard and each of them have seperate transrecievers. The macbook air only has two ports. If I bought a usb hub would this enable me to plug the transrecievers into the hub so I would have 1 usb port free? Im considering returning them and getting logtech's unifying transreciever, but they have no small keyboards that are compatible with it.

MacBook Air :: Unable To Open The Ports

Oct 21, 2010

So I've been thinking about how i am going to be using my new MBA as my main machine for a couple of months and i currently use an external monitor with it.

The MBA is advertised to run an external, such as an ACD.

I jut looked at the ports and i find it really strange that the MagSafe connector is on the left, but the mini display port is on the right... Now you will have cables on both sides? How does this work with the set of MagSafe + display port + USB in an ACD? I don't think they are long enough to go around? Or would you have to plus in the other MagSafe and just use the right side for display port and USB. That is silly though.
