MacBook Pro :: Bootcamp Chopped Hard Disk In Half And I Can't Find Other Half
Jun 26, 2009
Macbook pro 15"
I was trying to install windows on my pro, and i had bootcamp chop the hard disk in half, but then my disk drive didnt read the cd so i had to download and install some file. and after i restarted i could no longer access the windows side, it just disappeared.....plus i cannot reset my hard disk, cant erase it, and i cant reinstall OS X because there is no memory left..
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.
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.
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.
I've run out of disk space on my macbook air mid 2011 1.8ghz i7 with 4gb ram and 256gb hd. under storage it shows 250.14gb total and 184.28gb in other. i've used what size, disk inv. x, omnisweep and i cannot find 1/2 of my drive. my total data is 137.8gb in omnisweep. half of my drive appears to be gone. i can't find the data that's taking up half my space. my time machine is turned off. i did a hidden file search in terminal using find command.
I keep getting a "startup disk is full" message on my MacBook, yet I have more than 50% of my 55gig HD empty. Haven't partitioned the HD. I've tried clearing the cache on my browser and running disk repair on the HD. I'm considering adding RAM (currently have 1 gig). I'm running 10.6.8.
When I look at the utilities it shows that half of my hard drive is taken up by files listed as "other". I just moved most of my photos and movies onto a separate hard drive but these "other" files, when combined with my others, leave me little space on the hard drive. How can I remove these "other" files (if I can)?
Don't Worry, Me and my friends use bittorrent to share large files, not pirate software...But anyways my new ibook, will not load transmission, either directly by clicking on it or indirectly by opening a file with it....I have tried the newest version 1.51, and everything
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?
When I turn on my macbook pro I can only see 1/2 of the screen. I can see the right hand side of the screen, but the left hand side is black. Nothing will show up in the left hand side (cursor, window, etc.)
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.
This started after i installed boot camp. I partitioned the computer but didn't restart through the program, i left it for a few days and over those few days when i shut down it booted up again. After those few days, i installed windows 7 but It still keeps restarting quite often on shutting down and I don't know how to stop it.
I like to know something about charging my 13" MacBook Pro. If I charge my mac 50% or any other % and use it, I mean not fully charge, is there any problem. If I continue listen music or browsing internet or both together how long my battery will run normally. Also what about watching movie,normally can i watch 3dvd movie.
I was thinking about installing HL2 on my unibody 13" MBP but I'm starting to wonder if the integrated graphics will be able to handle it. I have the 2.53GHz processor w/ 4GB of memory but I'm not too sure about the graphics part.
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?
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?
The screen on my macbook (07 White 13" Macbook) is only displaying the top half of the screen.The bottom half is filled with colored vertical lines.On occasion it will clear up partially but mainly stays this way. I have reset the smc and pram. I have also disassebled and reseated the connection on the back of the lcd screen only.I have not reseated the connection wher it goes inside the computer body itself.
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.
I just bought MacBook Air and a bit confused.Firstly, i can't find how to add another language to the keyboard. Is it possible?Secondly, I open the Safari and it's on the half of the screen. How to may picture bigger? There is no sign stretch anywhere.And is it possible to open a few windows with safari like in iphone?
So jar launcher wasn't working for me so I decided to restart my computer but when I did there was a loading bar under the apple logo and it goes half way then freezes I am running os x yosemite 10.10 I found like a download of this online and no it wasn't torrent. So I turned it off again and tried it again and something happened what do I do right now its turned off.
Info: MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3), 10.10 yosemite new mac version
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
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!)
Everytime I lean my wrist or hand on it, the computer acts as if I am holding down the click and trying to select everything on the page. It's very difficult to get out of, however about 50% of the time hitting escape works.
This has happened on and off for the past year but has been getting worse recently. Has anyone else come across this and perhaps has a fix? Th MBP is around 3 years now.
