MacBook Pro :: Battery Does Not Recognize

Jun 10, 2012

My macbook pro is 14 months old, and its an early 2011 model. My question is: Does anyone experience with a x-icon battery? I tried to do the SMC reset, however nothing is fixed. It look like the battery does not commynicate with my Mac. Is my battery dead?

MacBook Pro :: It Doesn't Recognize Password

Apr 10, 2012

my GF and a glass of Wine. Cat hits wine and wine hits MBP. The Mac shut off instantly, we acted pretty quick and mopped up and turned upside down. I then took back off and over the course of the next 5 days I have stripped it down completely including the Key board and cleaned as best as I could. I've put it all back together and it starts up, a reassuring tone rings out, then apple sign appears with a loading bar beneath, this takes a while then it reaches the Lion log in page.It still recognizes me, or rather my name as the user but refuses my password which I know is correct.The keyboard isn't backlit but keys are typing something (can't see characters, just dots). Screen brightness works.No back light on keys although this may be normal at this point, not sure.

MacBook Pro :: Doesn't Recognize External Harddrive

Mar 6, 2012

my mac book pro is not recognizing my WD 500 GB external hardrive. I checked and double checked to make sure the external was mac compatible before I bought : and it was. It also is not recongizing an WD external hardrive I borrowed from a co-worker.  Here is what I have done and checked so far. 

- I checked to see if the externals worked on other Mac Pros( just to double check mac compatibility)-  they showed up on on 4 different Mac books.

- I checked to see if  there was something wrong my usb ports. So I incerted my 4 GB flash drive in the USB port, and then my co-workers 4GB  Flashdrive-  My computer recognized both the devices.

-  My computer was very full ( that is why I bought a bigger hardrive to back up my files) so  I thought  maybe there just wasnted even enough free space for my computer to recongize the devices. So I freed up 70GB of hardrive space on my mac book. - still nothing.

- I also checked to make sure  I had the suggested software updates to run the drive, before I bought it.

MacBook Pro :: Doesn't Recognize External HD And Bluetooth Unavailable?

Oct 19, 2009

so just like the title says I'm having some trouble as I did a recent upgrade to snow leopard and I have been beach balling a lot. I read that I should do a fresh install and heres where I ran into problems. My external HD is not appearing in finder. It used to work just fine before and it works fine on all of my roommates macs. I tried rebooting to see if it would fix the problem and all that happened was it made my bluetooth module say it was unavailable. Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

MacBook Pro :: Intel HD 4000 Doesn't Recognize RAM In Mid 2012

Jul 1, 2012

My shiny new Macbook Pro has already had a logicboard (Mac-ish for motherboard) replaced due to this. Games (tested Battlefield Bad Company 2 and GTA IV) crash within a few minutes with the screen freezing and showing random colors as the sound starts stuttering and the only solution is to do a hard restart - see image below. GTA IV tells me that it only recognizes 60 MB VRAM so I guess that the problem is with the graphic card not being able to use the computers onbard RAM (8 GB Corsair Vengeance). The RAM doesn't fail any tests and the computer works like a charm in OSX for days on end, even with heavy Lightroom/Photoshop use. Drivers are up to date.

MacBook :: 2009 Will Not Recognize Battery And Shuts Down After Boot-up?

Jun 24, 2012

the other night my girlfriends white 2009 Macbook (was updated to lion) stopped recognizing the battery. Only would boot when plugged into AC. I have other Macs so I tried different power adapters and switching in a battery that I knew was charged from another Macbook, and still did not recognize. Both batteries show 80% full or more when button pressed on battery. I moved it to my office to debug, requiring that I shut down and move the power cord. Then when I booted up, it started shutting down 10 seconds after reboot to user screen. I did the SMC reset and the PRAM resets, did Safe mode checking. Mac would still not "see" the battery or stay on for more then a few seconds even on AC. I then used the Snow Leopard install DVD and disc utilities, did a complete erase of the hard drive and reinstall of the Snow Leopard DVD. That took around 30 minutes, and the Macbook stayed on the entire time during reinstall. 1st boot after reinstall, stayed on long enogh to "set up" a user, then the shutdown problems appeared again.  

Not entirely sure, as the power light on the front has been faulty for over a year, so i can not see if it is "on", but if I plug in a thimb drive, the thumb drive light blinks as if it is getting poweer, I would think thta means the computer is on, maybe the display is just shutting off? I do not have the original install discs, just the Snow Leopard 10.6.3 install DVD and a Lion install thumb drive, how can I do a AHT?

MacBook :: Laptop Doesn't Recognize External Keyboard And Mouse

Mar 21, 2012

When my laptop stopped recognizing my external keyboard and mouse I searched the discussions and found an answer that has worked, but only temporarily. It was to do a PRAM reset 3 times and when I do this the keyboard and mouse work fine. But when I disconnect the mouse and keyboard and then later reconnect it will not recognize them. I have repeated the PRAM reset 3 times each time this has happened (4 times) and they work fine but then there is always a problem when I disconnect and reconnect.

MacBook Pro :: Doesn't Recognize Portable Hard Drive Anymore

Jun 21, 2014

To provide some background on my issue, my portable hard drive format was NTFS, and I wished for it to be FAT-32.  I was trying to transfer some files over from my Windows computer to my Mac, however it wouldn't work due to the formatting.  To change the formatting, I used some third-party software and started the conversion (without formatting the drive so that I could keep all my files) however mid way through the process, my stupid laptop entered sleep mode and stopped everything.   

When I tried to re-plug the hard drive in my Mac, it didn't show up in the finder, but the Disk Utility did find it.  The model I have is the iStorage DiskGenie portable hard drive.

MacBook Pro :: After Sleep Mode Computer Sometimes Doesn't Recognize Wireless Connection

Jun 22, 2012

After using my MacBook Pro I close the laptop and it goes to sleep. Later when I return to it and open it, sometimes it can't find the network. The computer is able to see that I have an Apple Network available, but it won't connect.Sometimes when I try to connect, it gives me a timeout. How I fix it is to walk over to the router and unplug it and plug it back in. After I get the green light again, I go to the Apple Network and it works.

OS X :: MBP / OSX 10.6 Doesn't Recognize Printer

May 4, 2010

I wonder if you can suggest something? My MBP currently doesn't recognise the printer I have (HP OfficeJet 6210, which has worked before with this computer). In fact the list of printer models under "add printer" is now empty. So it doesn't detect any printer and I can't suggest any printer for it to detect. I tried reinstalling the "printers" part of Snow Leopard but it didn't change anything. What would be the best thing to do?
