MacBook Pro :: MBP - VGA Cable Not Working

Nov 29, 2010

I have a gateway 24" flat screen that I am trying to hook up via VGA to my i5 macbook pro. I have hooked up this computer to projectors before with no problem, but for some reason when I plug it into the monitor it says no signal even when I refresh it in system properties. I thought the cable might be weird, but it works with a windows computer that I have.

OS X :: G4 Powerbook Not Working / Cable And Battery Are Fine?

Aug 13, 2010

I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have a G4 Powerbook that I've had since 2003 (yes I know in computing terms that's ancient-but we were getting along fine...!) 15 inch, 1.25GHz/512/80/SD. Replacement battery about 18mths ago, no other problems.

On Wednesday evening it completely froze and I had to press and hold the power button to turn it off. And that was it, nothing more, no whirring, no noise-It just won't do anything. Have tried resetting the PMU-several times, ac cable and battery are fine.

Hardware :: External Drive Not Working After USB Cable Replacement?

Sep 22, 2009

I have a Mac Mini, running OS X and for ages I have been using an external drive for transferring pictures and videos between friends and family and for backups of a few documents for work etc. I have never had any trouble using the drive and it has always worked OK.

The drive is an unknown brand, but for a few years it has worked with no problems.

I took the drive round to my girlfriends house to transfer some pictures and I lost my cable somewhere between my house and hers. The cable supplied with the drive was a USB 2.0, and went from USB A male one end to 2x USB A male on the other end. One of which I would use to transfer files over. The other just seemed useless and I never plugged it in to any USB port.

I replaced the cable with a single USB 2.0 cable and the drive powered up, all lights flashing, but nothing appeared on screen. I tried it on my housemates laptop, and my brothers laptop, both running Windows Vista. The laptops both installed drivers, and told me that everything was OK - good to go - but then nothing appeared on those either.

Does anyone have any idea what is wrong with the hard drive? I assume it is the type of cable that I have bought, as it was working fine before I lost the cable and replaced it with a single USB lead?

Hardware :: External Drive Are Not Working - Change The Cable?

Jan 18, 2008

I have a Maxtor 3200 that I reformatted to OS X with the help of information on this board. I have been using it to save my music files and photos. It was working great but all of a sudden it will not let me save or transfer any files larger that a simple spreadsheet. Every time I try to save anything larger, it freezes up and usually crashes.I have plenty of space left on the disk. I have tested the drive using the disk utility and it has found no errors or problems. I've even changed the cable I am using.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Personal Hotspot On IPhone 4s Not Working Via USB Cable

Apr 24, 2012

In the last couple of weeks, I have not been able to use the Personal Hotspot on my iPhone 4s via the USB/sync cable to either of two 2011 Macs, both running the latest version of Lion, with all relevant software updated, including Flashback removal & Java updates. The connection via Bluetooth & wi-fi is unaffected. 

Opening the Network System Preference pane, the connection is shown as iPhone USB, but it is not connected, even with all other internet access methods either deactivated or disconnected. 

This issue is related to Lion, as the G4 & G5 PPC Macs running 10.5.8 which I either use or administer are not affected by this problem. The iPhone is running on iOS 5.1 and is not jailbroken. 

Is it possible that the Flashback/Java issues and Apple's interpretation of their prevention/removal has affected this aspect of internet access via Personal Hotspot?

PowerPC :: EMac And IMac File Sharing With Ethernet Cable And Other Cable?

Oct 12, 2010

I was wondering how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:Three Ethernet Cables Now how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? Also, I do not want to use CDs and have no CDs that came with the computers. I want to put Xubuntu on the eMac and Debian on the iMacs and erase the rest of the Hard Drives. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4 in my Signature.

Jan 9, 2009

I have a Mac Pro with an optical line in. I bought a cable and connected it to the Mac Pro, but the receiver(where I want to plug the line in) is old and only received optical. Is there some sort of adapter that would convert the connect that doesn't cost $200? I was able to connect an analog cable from the front of the mac pro's headphone jack into the back of the receiver, but the sound isn't really the greatest.

MacBook Pro :: New VGA Cable Won't Do 1920x1080?

Sep 17, 2010

I have two VGA cables. My first is simply a cheap one which I have been using for the past few months on my full HD (1080p) TV. I use a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter on my 17" Macbook Pro and have been able to get full HD output to my TV.

However, this cable was poorly shielded and I got some wavy lines from other TV inputs.

I've just got a new VGA cable, and this has far greater shielding (so that problem is fixed), however I cannot get it to go above a resolution of 1400x1050 - going to 1920x1080 @60Hz as I did with the other cable gives me a message from my TV - "Unsupported signal. Adjust your PC output."

When I try and use the 'Detect Displays' button in System Preferences, I don't see anything happen as a result...

Edit: After a bit of research, my new cable is actually an SVGA cable. It has the same pins, layout etc and as far as I'm aware it should work. Why doesn't it!?

Edit2: Tried another VGA cable, and that works. So my findings are that 'Super-VGA' cable doesn't work, at least by default. Any way I can fix this?

OS X :: How To Connect PS3 To MacBook With Cable

Nov 14, 2009

My question is if it's possible to connect my MacBook Pro (13") with ethernet connection to my PS3 with an ethernet (or other) cable. So that my PS3 sees my MacBook without using any router, etc... and that I can play movies (e.g. in Blu-Ray) or music that's on my MacBook through my PS3 on my TV?

I've tried Medialink but I guess that's also for wireless streaming also because when I connect my MacBook with my PS3 my PS3 doesn't show up under "devices".

MacBook Pro :: How To Access Cable That Connects To LCD

Dec 14, 2010

The screen on my macboook pro, 13inch, was messing up earlier, flickering and all.

I got trigger happy and decided to take the glass bezel off my MBP (I've done it before) and managed to disconnect the LCD screen from the rest of the MBP.

However now I can't accurately connect the LCD screen back to the cable it's connected to at the base of where the lcd screen would go.

I'm checking out the videos on PowerBook Medic for the macbook Pro and am seeing how they take off all these things such as the SuperDrive, fans, logic board, etc....but rather than taking off every single item am wondering which of these to take out in order to be able to pull out that cable ever so slightly, simply so I'll then be able to connect it to the LCD screen..

I'll keep researching online and also hope for any guidance tonight, seei as id really like to get this issue resolved before the night ends...not forcing me to leave a tangled MBP on my desk overnight.
