MacBook Pro :: How Long Does Extended Apple Hardware Test Take

Nov 25, 2009

I'm running one on my mid-2009 15" MacBook Pro with 4Gb RAM. It appears to be taking forever as it tests memory. It's been on Pass Number 2 for around 30 minutes now. The progress bar is either completely stalled or moving VERY slowly. Is this normal for the extended AHT? This is the first time I've run the extended test. I ran the quick test just prior to this one and it returned no errors.

OS X :: How Long Can Apple Hardware Test Run

Nov 25, 2009

I'm running an extended Apple Hardware Test on my 4Gb MacBook Pro. It's been running 50 minutes and isn't even 25% completed going by the progress bar. It's been on the same step (memory pass number 2) for pretty much this entire time. Is this a sign that something is wrong with my MacBook Pro? It was purchased new in June of this year.

Mac Pro :: Hardware Extended Test Results Error

Jan 23, 2010

Ran the extended test a couple times and got an error result: 4MEM/9/40000006:B:OC:OR:2. Is this telling what my problem part is? Location? I decided to run the test because I've been having startup issues, no startup chime, sometimes no monitor startups, etc. Hence, I keep machine running 24/7, until software updates. From search, it definitely sounds like a stick of memory, but which one. Do I have to pull a pair and run the test each time to find out the culprit? I think I bought from OWC a couple times, and one other time from a another vendro (kingston ram).

Software :: Hardware Test Error Codes - Extended Result

Nov 12, 2008

Today I ran AHT version 3A134 on my MacBook Pro Penryn 2.5GHz (early 2008) it came out with error codes:

4MOT/1/40000002: Right side-2893 on 1st extended test result,
4MOT/1/40000002: Right side-3017 on 2nd extended test.

When I initially ran the short test no error code was resulted from the test, only by the extended tests the errors occurred. I have my machine's limited warranty until June 2009. Could you please tell me what are the error codes refer to?

MacBook Pro :: Apple Hardware Test Freezes, "one Second" Into The Test?

Apr 9, 2012

I have a 17" unibody MBP (early 2009, specs below). It was running hotter than usual the other day, so I F2 booted into AHT to run a diagnostic. The status box within AHT showed 1 second into the 1st pass, and never got beyond that. Several seconds after that status message was displayed, the cursor froze. The time counter never advanced after that, and although I waited a long time, nothing happened. The test froze. 

I've tried it several times more. It once worked, but every other time has frozen. Checking the "extended test" box, or trying to run in loop mode has made no difference - still freezes at "1 second". 

I've had this machine for 3 years, OS's Leopard through Lion, and this has never happened before. I last ran a test, successfully, in January. I've not changed any components or suffered any damage since then. Memtest (ver 4.22) says my RAM is fine. (I ran this because the first portion of the AHT is the RAM component.) Aside from the aforementioned overheating episode, which disappeared, my machine's been fine.

MacBook Air :: Extended Apple Care Plan?

Jan 9, 2011

First I would like to say hello to everyone and soon I will (finally) enter the Mac world. I've been a 50-50 type of guy (Apple/Microsoft) and I had the majority of the multimedia Apple products without actual Macs though. I was tempted to buy a MacBook before but I always wanted something sleek, sexy yet with a good sauce of performance since I am not a heavy usage type of guy and for gaming I will be getting a 360 Slim later on. Finally that day has come and I will be buying the ultimate 11". Question is, is it worth the extended Apple Care plan? I searched for answers on the official Apple site, googled up for a couple of days but I didn't find exactly what I wanted. Does it cover (for example) accidental damage? Or what are the real advantages of having an extended Apple Care plan? Since it will be my first Mac I will want to take extra care with it.

MacBook Pro :: Kudos - Extended Apple Care

Jan 9, 2010

My apple care ran out over a month ago and they still covered a video card problem in my Mbp. Anyone else get repairs done after coverage expired? I was having an aweful time trying to figure out why I couldn't get a good calibration when running external monitors. The card seemed to be working, but I guess whenbutvwas put under stress it failed. My mbp is at apple getting a new logic board, can't imagine what that costs. Plus my 30" cinema is getting a new hinge that would not tighten properly. Apple care is definitely worth it.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Get Apple Hardware Test To Run

Apr 7, 2012

I purchased my Macbook Pro (Early 2011) 2ghz i7 edition, about 4 months ago now,

Earlier today my MacBook Pro ran a grey bar update during start up started up & ran a little slower until I restarted afterwards. I was concerened until the restart, however I am no longer concerned. My main issue is that now I can't seem to correctly follow the instructions to successfully start an apple hardware test. I have previously owned a Mac mini, Powermac G5 Dual 1.8ghz and Powermac Quad G5 and I have always been able to successfully run apple hardware tests on them.

I held down the "D" key during startup prior to the grey screen and I tried plugging in a ethernet cable, the powercable and a USB keyboard all to no avail.

MacBook Pro :: Will It Run Normally After Use The Apple Hardware Test

Jun 3, 2012

I've been having issues with my 2011 MacBook Pro, I just keep getting a weird error popup but it always flashes up and goes away before I can read it. My Mac has also even running a bit slower lately and I know that I can do the Apple Hardware Test to check out that all the hardware is functioning properly. But will my Mac continue to run normally after I do the AHT? Like, will I be able to use it as I was before?

Mac Pro :: Apple Care Can't Be Extended?

May 1, 2010

I just called Apple about an iPod issue. When he told me that my iPod's Apple Care expired, I gave him my Mac Pro SN, and he helped with the iPod issue as a courtesy. So while on the topic, I thought to request an extension of coverage for my Mac Pro system (about $5k worth of hardware).

He told me that Apple Care cannot be extended. "So you just have to buy new stuff, huh?" I asked. He quietly replied, "Yes."

I cannot imagine having to buy $5k plus new hardware just to keep my equipment covered. Wow. Did I misunderstand him? Does anyone need some editing work done.

MacBook Pro :: OS X (10.7.5) - Apple Hardware Test Not Loading

Aug 30, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro (17-inch, Late 2011)  using OSX 10.7.5

Trying to run Apple hardware test as my computer keeps crashing, or shutting down 30min in.   I restart while holding down "D" and nothing comes up. takes a while to startup, but then goes straight to desktop.  What am I doing wrong?  I'm ethernet connected to internet.  When I bought the computer I installed an SSD HD. I remember when needing to install new software on the new drive it was a nuisance since the computer didn't actually ship with any software CDs.  Had to do it over the internet somehow.  The computer didn't have any problems before so never had to use AHT until now. 

secondary question.  I also reset SMC, by pressing left side shift+control+option+power key after shut down, but didn't get much response out of that either.  no sound, or signal that what I did actually reset SMC.  How would I know it reset or not?

MacBook Pro :: 8GB RAM In 2010 Giving 4MEM Error On Apple Hardware Test?

Oct 11, 2010

I recently bought 2 4GB sticks of RAM that someone recommended on here, the brand is G.SKILL and I got them from newegg.

The thing is, since installing them I have had 2 kernel panics (gray screen of death) that I wasn't having with my 4GB before.

The thing is, I have run Apple Hardware Test and with 8GB I get this error: 4MEM/62/40000000 0x84de1318

So I take out both sticks and stick them in the reverse slots, and I get: 4MEM/65/40000000 0x84e0d318

So I am thinking it must be one of the sticks of ram. So I take them both out and put 1 in the bottom slot, no issues. Stick the other one in, again no issues. So I put one into the top slot to see if maybe a slot has a problem and I once again have no issues when running the extended tests.

So, I decide that maybe I just need to retry putting the ram in again and I get this error, slightly different this time.4MEM/66/40000000 0x84e11318

I really don't know what is going on here, nothing is plugged into the computer, and the RAM modules seem to be fine on their own. I guess for now I am going to stick the Apple RAM back in and see if it throws a similar error.

MacBook Pro :: How Long Does Take Apple To Send Confirmation Email

Aug 7, 2009

I ordered a macbook pro and an iPod touch yesterday and didn't get a confirmation email so I cancelled.
I contacted the bank today and everything is in order so I ordered again and it's been 2 hours and I didn't get the confirmation email yet. Does it usually take this long? I've never bought on the online apple store before. I got the "thank you for your order" thing and everything so I'm sure they accepted the credit card. I'm not sure why the email is taking forever and it's getting me to be a little edgy.

OS X :: Apple Rapidly Seeding Mac OS X 10.5.3 Test Builds

Apr 1, 2008

The next security and maintenance release for Apple's Leopard operating system could arrive sooner than later if the company maintains its current cadence, which has seen two successive pre-release builds land in the hands of developers in just five days. On the heels of the first external test build labeled Mac OS X 10.5.3 build 9D10 and released privately late last week, the Mac maker on Tuesday followed up with build 9D11, which adds nearly 20 more fixes and code corrections, bringing the new total expected with software's release to nearly 100. Among the most recent improvements, according to people familiar with the ongoing testing process, are fixes to AirPort connection issues and problems with the MacBook Air's sleep functionality. Other fresh fixes target Time Machine, Spaces layering and preferences, graphics corruption, display issues within, Back to My Mac communication issues, and Automator quirks when interacting with

As was the case with Friday's pre-release distribution, Apple reportedly asked that its developer community focus their ongoing testing efforts on two dozen core system components. These include, but are not limited to, AirPort, AppleScript, Audio, Dashboard, Directory Services, Dock, DVD Player, Finder, Graphics, Installer, Printing, and VoiceOver. Mac OS X 10.5.3 Update, which currently weighs in at a hefty 410+ MB in Delta form and 530+ MB in Combo form, will mark the third update to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard since the software made its official debut in late October. While those people familiar with the ongoing testing process have been unable to provide a target release date, it's presume the update is being groomed for distribution sometime in April or May.

OS X :: How To Do Network Hardware Test At Apple Store...

I'm wondering if anyone has any information on the network boot Apple hardware test done in the stores - how it might compare to the OS9-looking hardware test that comes with the machines, or would have been used over USB if an Apple tech were working on it. The network version looks radically different from either the CD that shipped with my machine, or the ASD CD.

OS X :: Apple Asks To Test Fonts In Latest Mac OS X 10.6.3 Beta

Mar 16, 2010

Apple on Tuesday afternoon pushed out another private beta of Mac OS X 10.6.3, asking its developer community to test font compatibility and stability alongside a handful of other components that have been in need of evaluation for the past several weeks.

Those other components include iCal, QuickTime and graphics drivers, according to people familiar with the beta software. The last private beta, distributed March 5th and labeled build 10D567, also listed those components as focus areas, in addition to Rosetta and third party printer drivers.

When it's released later this month, Mac OS X 10.6.3 will bundle an update to QuickTime X that improves security and compatibility while also enhancing overall reliability of the media software.

The Snow Leopard update will also include tweaks that enhance the performance of Apple's 64-bit Logic pro audio suite and deliver better compatibility with third-party printers and OpenGL-grounded applications.

Other fixes baked into the release target issues with mail messages displaying the incorrect background color and problems copying files to a shared Windows volume.

The latest beta carries build number 10D571 and weighs in around 700MB.[ View this article at ]
