May 17, 2012

My MacBook Pro 15 inch mid 2010 model i7 processor is having problems when I close the lid and the computer goes to sleep. Heres how my problem is occouring. I close my macbook pro lid. After waiting about 10 min (my macbook sleep time) I lift the lid. Once I do this i see the screen.... for about 2 seconds and it suddenly goes black. I fix it by turning my brightness down 1 bar then turning it back up 1 bar. I dont remeber this happening on snow leopard it seems to be a lion issue and a lot of other users are having it.

MacBook Pro :: (15-inch, Mid 2010): Intermittent Black Screen Or Loss Of Video?

Jun 4, 2012

My November 2011 17" MacBook Proi has on several occasions gone to a black screen, which requires hard shutdown and re-boot.  It happens in two ways:  coming out of sleep, the screen appears for a second and then goes black, and sometimes when jjust using the Mac. 

It comes back on after re-boot with no apparent problems but seems to be occuring more frequently, so I need to get this fixed.

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Had Accidental Liquid Spillage But Still Turns On But The Screen Is Black?

May 26, 2012

It was just an accidental liquid spill, but however my macbook pro has been acting up before all this mishap with the graphics. I thought is was just nothing so I didn't care to bring it to an apple store but when I had to bring it and check it out using the Nvidia video test it presumed a failed video card. The genuius said it will take 2 weeks to be fix until several days later I recieved a call saying it can not be fix due to a foreseen amount of liquid damage. I've spilt other liquid items but wiped it off the keyboard quickly and it still worked. I'm using my MBP right now with an external monitor, it still works fine but with the issue of the screen being pitch black.

IMac :: New 21.5 Inch ... Getting Random Black Screen

Sep 24, 2010

The screen randomly turns black without any major reasons. It doesn't seem to be a sleep mode/screen saver thing as the music continues to play on. I can adjust the volume or pause the music with the keyboard but the screen just won't turn back on. I have to shut it down using the power button and it happened several time the last couple days. Anyone else experience the same thing and got a solution?

MacBook Pro :: Black Screen At Start Up And After Sleep

Apr 30, 2012

My macbook pro is only a month old, and I've done nothing to it besides write documents and use facebook. Every time I close the lid so the computer can "sleep" it does, but when I open the lid back up, it refuses to wake up. My friend has the same computer and automatically her screen lights up when she opens the lid from sleep. My screen will stay black up to 10 minutes sometimes. Why is this happening? Should I bring it in to Apple? Also, when I shut my computer down, starting it up is another hassel in itself. The screen goes white like it's suppose to, but only for a split second. The apple in the center never shows up, and the screen just goes black. It's very aggravating and I feel like I'm the one with the only messed up mac.

MacBook :: Black Screen But Sleep Indicator Is Coming On And Off

Feb 18, 2012

I've got pretty old MB that was bought back in 2007, and it's been working ok up until today. All of a sudden I can not boot it, the screen stays black. Whenever I turn it on the screen flashs for ~100ms and then remains black, at the same time the sleep mode light is on and off not gredually fading in and out like when it is in sleep mode but sharply. Safe boot didn't help, PRAM reset didn't help, booting into the firmware (CMD-OPT-O-F) didn't work as the screen stays black. . I can hear hard drive working but other then that I see no signs of life (even caps lock and num lock keys don't get highlighted when I press them)

MacBook Pro :: Black Screen After Waking Up From Sleep With Connected Dell Display?

Aug 17, 2009

I have a 2 month old 13" MBP which I absolutely love. The only hitch is that there is an oddity when connected to my Dell 2008wfp display. It only happens when I wake the MBP from sleep. A number of things happen sometimes. Usuaully, when I wake the MBP from sleep, i get a black screen on both displays and all I can see and control is the cursor. Sometimes the main display will be black, but the MBP display will show the desktop wallpaper, but again, I can only see and control the mouse cursor. It should also be worth mentioning that the keyboard is rendered non-functional as well.

Sometimes, OS X will appear on both displays, with mouse cursor active, keyboard inactive, but I am unable to click anything or interact with anything OS X.

Anyway, I'm at the point where I need to mention this because it happens quite frequently and its getting rather annoying. The only way I can get out of this hang, is to cold reboot the machine. It happens everyday and at least 50% of the time I wake the MBP from sleep. When not connected to the display, I never get this occurrence. Also, this display worked perfectly when I used to own the classic 15" MBP, so its hard for me to pinpoint what exactly is the anomaly that is happening.

Anyone else experiencing this same issue? I am using a mini display port to DVI adapter to the Dell display.

Windows On Mac :: Black Screen After Sleep In Vista

Sep 1, 2010

I've been experiencing a black screen with a frozen cursor (everything is basically frozen) after waking up from sleep in Windows Vista. The Mac side of things are fine, and its super annoying, because I have to do a hard reboot each time this happens. I tried google, but it appears that everyone that has a problem similar to this has a responsive computer or just needed a different driver for their graphics card. I've tried installing a different X1600 driver for this, but it didn't work. I'm on a MBP1,1 running Windows Vista SP2 (fully upgraded) with Bootcamp 3.1.

IMac :: Black Screen Display When Wake Up From Sleep

Dec 21, 2010

For the past few weeks it has been going to a black screen when trying to wake it up from sleep. Either I've put it through too much work lately editing all these photos and its really tired. So, often it wakes up normally and functions fine, well, not really. It is seemingly very slow. It requires a lot of time (more than before) to open up a program or it gives me the "spinning wheel of death" when trying to go to a different page on the internet or open up a folder on my desktop. Amongst other things that require it to think. So It's just a lot slower in general than before.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Black Screen Upon Wake Up After Longer Sleep?

Mar 9, 2012

In the last 2 months or so, I have seen my MacMini 2011 OSX 10.7.3 crashing withing a minute of wakeup, after sleeps of more than 2-3 hours. 

Sometimes the Black screen occurs almost immediately, sometimes it takes up to a minute after the desktop appears (after logging in). This did not occur until I got 10.7.3 and only within the last 2 months.

MacBook Pro :: 2010 13 Inch Metallic Noise?

Aug 9, 2010

I have used Mroogle but everything that i found had something to do with the clicking the hard drive makes when it is moved. The noise my computer is making seems to be coming from the front of the computer near the trackpad. It is metallic-y and rather annoying when browsing the web or streaming movies or playing games.Is this something that i should be concerned about?

Intel Mac :: 2011 Screen Unexpectedly Goes Black (to Sleep), Won't Wake

Feb 19, 2012

I'm using an iMac (late 2011) with 10.7.3. I'm doing things on the computer or some process is going on when the screen instantly goes black (no dimming first). If a video was playing, I can still hear it playing, but pushing keys on the keyboard or mouse or pad does nothing to wake the screen. Sometimes pushing the power button a number of times will get the screen to come on, sometimes it won't. When the screen goes black, if an external drive was running and then stops, I can sometimes get the screen to come to live. Sometimes this black screen happens when I'm burning a DVD; when the DVD is finished, I can bring the screen to life. I thought one of my two external drives was bad, so I disconnected it. That seemed to help (though verifying the disk revealed no problems). But a few minutes ago, the screen instantly went black again; no dimming first. There have been times I thought this was associated with a new bit of software, but then it returns even after I delete the suspect software. Sometimes I have to use the power button to shut down the iMac then restart it. Once, I had to unplug and replug the iMac before I could get the computer to respond and the screen to return to life. I don't know if this is a hardware problem (internal or external), a software problem, or some combination...or something I haven't thought of, at all.

MacBook Pro :: 13 Inch Early 2010 Gets Really Hot And Fans Get Really Loud?

May 24, 2012

I have an early 2010 MBP (13 inch) whose RAM I upgraded to 8GB and the hard drive I upgraded to 750GB.Ever since I installed OSX Lion it takes ages to boot up (far slower than Snow Leopard which booted up almost instantly from turn on).Furthermore, when running, it gets very hot when running Windows virtualisation software inside OSX (VMWare Fusion 4/Parallels Desktop 6/7 - same results) and the fans turn on and become noticeabley loud.The machine is still under Applecare Warranty, is there anything I can do myself to resolve this, especially the heat/noisy fans?Is it due to having to work harder to virtualise Windows inside OSX and so run both systems concurrently, thus requiring more resources?

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Will Not Wake From Sleep

May 17, 2012

I've lived with this as long as I care to live with this. My 17" MacBook Pro will not wake from sleep.  Space key, mouse click, closing lid and re-opening, disconnecting power and reconnecting -- nothing works.  When the display goes to sleep I have no alternative but to force a reboot with the power button.  I can't see how this can be good for my hard drives.  But to set the machine to never sleep will likely damage the display. 

I believe my firmware is up to date.  I'm running OS 10.6.8.  I recently reinstalled system software and updated everything but the problem persists. 

Here is my system info: I await your collective wisdom to flow over me.

Windows On Mac :: MS Office In 7 Ultimate Via VMware Fusion On MBP 13 Inch Mid 2010?

Sep 7, 2010

I'm looking to buy a new macbook pro for school but I have some questions before I can buy one. For some of my school work I still have to use windows. I'll need windows for SPSS for windows and for MS Office, Access to be more specific.

I already own a 21.5 inch iMac on which I run Windows 7 Ultimate and I have installed MS Office in Windows 7. The problem is that I noticed some difference in using the keys on your keyboard while working in excel or access.

For example: on my windows laptop in excel, i have to hold control and then click on the fields i want to select. I noticed that on my iMac i needed to hold the right alt key on my mac keyboard and then i got to click the fields I want to select. So this is just a slight difference and it doesn't matter at all if I have to use some different keys for this type of actions. As long as I know how to do them offcourse. This may be silly for some of you but in order to get some good grades I really need to know this. Note that I only need to use Access not excel. But I just gave Excel as an example so you guys know where I'm coming from.

So my question is, does anyone have any experience with this? Are there other key changes I have to know? Or important notes on this subject?

I also have another question. As I already explained above I am running Windows 7 ultimate via Vmware Fusion and I have installed MS Office in this virtual machine. Can I just copy the virtual machine file from my iMac to my macbook pro? So I will have the same settings on my MBP?

MacBook :: Moving A Logic Board From 2008 Black Macbook To 2010 White Macbook

Jun 28, 2010

So last December my laptop got smashed and everything works except for the backlit screen. In fact I can still use this laptop it is just extremely hard since the screen does not light up. The person that smashed it ended up buying me a new laptop so I have this beat up (and I mean the shell is destroyed) laptop with quite a lot of functioning parts.

Now a few weeks ago my girlfriends Grandad spilled a beer on his brand new 2010 Macbook. The logic board is shot so it is almost cheaper for him to buy a brand new laptop.

Would it be possible for me to take the logic board out of my 2008 Black Macbook and put it into his 2010 White Macbook?
