MacBook :: Half RAM Displaying On Board (32 Bit OS)

Oct 10, 2009

I've had my White Macbook for the best part of about a year now, and I'm really pleased with it. Recently though it's been getting a little sluggish, I checked the specs out and I have 1GB of RAM on board, I though fair play, and got a 4GB Kit. I've just plugged it in and it's only displaying 2GB on board.

I could understand if it maxed at 3 as I am only running a 32bit OS and it wouldn't be able to index the extra gig. I'm now looking closer at the RAM Modules and its saying that they are 1GB each. It seems as if one of my DIMM Slots isn't working, any ideas what I can do or is it back to the Apple store for a hefty repair bill?

MacBook Pro :: Bottom Half Of My Screen Go Black And Most Of The Top Half Flicker?

Jun 23, 2010

I have a MacBook Pro with the 9600gt in it. Since updating to 10.6.4 this morning 2 times while playing java games i've had the bottom half of my screen go black and most of the top half flicker. I've had to hold in the power button and reset both times. The second time I closed the screen and reopened it, the screen was black but no mouse and nothing moved.

Any advice? Would this be something to do with my graphics card or possibly some error in 10.6.4?Edit:: This is software related to 10.6.4 update and only happens when I open up a java game in a browser.

Intel Mac :: Left Half Of The Screen Would Flick And Become Darker Than The Lower Half?

Jun 21, 2012

At the beginning of last year I bought a 3.2GHz 27" iMac. About a month ago I noticed that, within about 5 minutes of starting my computer back up from sleep the left half of the screen would flick and become darker than the lower half (about 4 clicks of the light button lower). Sometimes the screen will flick to become even darker than this (but usually it returns to the 4 clicks darker after a short while), and sometimes it returns to normal only to go darker again.

IMac :: Screen Is Half Light/half Dark - How To Fix It

Oct 31, 2008

I started up iTunes, checked my email, and looked up to see the top half of my display drop about 15 shades darker than the bottom half! I called Apple Care who told me they had never heard of something like this before and advised me to call the nearest Apple Store. I did, and like Apple Care, they had never heard of this happening.

MacBook Air :: Replace Logic Board With New Nvidia Board?

Apr 17, 2009

I'm somewhat new to the forums, and found a really good deal for a brand new macbook air (rev.1). I'd like to know if it is possible to replace the logic board in my macbook air with a newer, nvidia-gfx based logic board. As in, will it fit, does the same power supply run it, same peripherals (airport, keyboard, etc) work/interface with it, etc?

i cant find anything on that model, except for on ebay.

and i totally cant find the serial number on this macbook. under the battery on the tray has no serial number listed, and i've read through this documentation [URL]

MacBook Pro :: Computer Turns On For Half Second Then Shuts Off

Sep 3, 2010

Macbook pro intel core duo. My macbook is turned off, when I press the power button the light goes on and the computer starts making sounds of turning on for about half a second and than shuts off. I tried removing the battery and putting it again, I tried to hold the power button (the light flickers at one point and eventually shuts off as well after 2 seconds), and tried turning it on with the adapter plugged in and unplugged.

MacBook Pro :: Remove Entire Top Half Portion?

Jun 9, 2010

I've searched everywhere, and i can't find a thread or video about removing the whole top portion of the mbp off. all i have found was how to replace the screen, but not the actual top with the hinge etc. when i close my mbp, the top part isn't aligned properly. the right corner of the bottom half of the unibody shows, while the left corner has a portion of the top portion overlaying the botom portion. hopefully that makes sense. is it hard to remove the whole top? how do u do it? is it worth risking my warranty?

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Stuck - Half Clicked

Aug 17, 2010

Today the trackpad somehow managed to get stuck down, like it was permanently clicked and I wasn't able to really use it. I tried sliding paper through the edges to dislodge any foreign objects but that didn't help. After awhile it got better, but it's still not working right. It's not longer stuck completely down, and the trackpad is usable. However, it's not clicking all the way down like it should and it's very sensitive, sorta like it's halfway clicked. Are there any solutions to this or am I going to have to take it to an Apple store?

MacBook Pro :: Fan Almost Running Constantly Even When Half Of CPU Idle

Mar 23, 2012

The fan is almost constantly running, it shouldn't be. The Activity monitor at the moment is showing that 45% of CPU is idle. About a third of my drive is free. I have 500 Gb of SSD, so there are no moving disk heads. The screen is turned up to a level I want to work with. I am running the regular stuff -- Word, Firefox, Mail and other Apple apps, all usual stuff. The MBP sits on a clear glass desk so heat can disburse through the glass, but the fan is still running. The MBP is about two years old. Lion.

MacBook :: Vertical Lines Covering Half Of My Display?

Dec 27, 2010

My 2008 Penryn White Macbook siplays vertical lines and or vertical grey/black bars on 60% of the display. This happens from when it is powered on until and including when you arrive at desktop. The space the lines occupy does not increase or shrink, they have covered the area from the moment the problem arose.

it is not the common line issue that a Tiger update solved since this Macbook came with Leopard pre-installed. The lines are still there with the hard drive removed and they are still there when I booted a live Ubuntu CD, so I have ruled out software being the cause. Also I have ruled out inverter because I would not be getting any backlighting.


To me that leaves:

-The LCD display panel itself (although there is no physical damage and it has never been dropped)

-The display data cable that connects LCD to the logic board

MacBook Pro :: Half Of MPB Screen Blanking Out With Vertical Lines

Nov 7, 2009

I have a late 2007 2.2ghz MBP. It seems that the video cable is failing, as I often open it up from sleep and get only half an image on the screen. Image capture does not capture this, so I know that it is hardware related. It does not happen on my external monitor.

It is getting more frequent, and has been going on for about a month, The warranty expired in late September (lucky me!)
