I have an aluminum macbook. I've had it since April 09 and I absolutely love it. I purchased a 22" Dell external monitor that i am connecting via mini display to dvi adapter. I've just been using this for about three hours and I've noticed that my laptop is REALLY hot right by the adapter.
I have the 65W white square adapter for my 17" Powerbook, and I have the Yo-Yo adapter for my 12" Ibook (G3 500 mhz).Is there any reason why I cannot use the 65W adapter on my 12" book in place of the Yo-Yo adapter? (I know for power requirement reasons I cannot use the Yo-Yo on my 17")
My old G4 had no DVD drive and I bought Myst IV, but could not load it. My new MBP uses 10.6.4 and Myst IV does not support anything other than X.3 or 4. Can I use my MBP dvd drive to load the game files to my G4? What kind of adaptor would I use?
I have a 13" MacBook that I purchased in Feb 2008, and need to do some presentations from it, so I'm looking for the correct VGA adapter for it. I believe there was some change in the display on the Macbooks, so I'm sure if the current MiniDisplay to VGA adapter sold at Apple will work for fine.
Are there any that a store like best Buy sells that are compatible with a Mac / Macbook? I need to pick up a signal in another room, and the only way would be to run a long USB cord attached to a wireless adapter...but it seems like none of the bigger brands sell Mac-compatible versions. If anyone knows of a compatible adapter, please post about it!
I'm trying to watch some movies with my family and I'm having problems.
I'm not getting any signal from my tv. I think the item is fine since my macbook's resolution changes to 800X600 I tried to change it to 640X480 (I think) the lowest possible resolution and it doesn't work, Nothing happens to the tv only in my macbook.
I had an extra 45w power adapter in my office; which I used to use with my Macbook Air. So today, I mated it to my new i7 MBP15 and was expecting it not to work because of insufficient power. But it seems to work just fine.
Is there any harm in using the 45w power adapter at work and the 85w adapter on the roadhome? I'm assuming the 45w adapter just wont charge the battery as fast.
I bought an iMac a couple of years ago and liked it so much I bought a Macbook Pro a week or so ago. I downloaded a tv series from iTunes last night and took the adapter from the iMac and hooked up the Macbook to the tv to watch the show> Well the show plays on the laptop monitor, but the only thing that shows up on the tv is the wallpaper that comes installed on the Macbook (the galaxy thing).
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
I've recently purchased the Retina MacBook Pro and I wanted to get an Ethernet adapter for it. I was wondering whether it would be any quicker buying the official apple thunderbolt adaptor. Or would it be just as efficinet to buy a cheaper alternative on Amazon (one that uses USB).
I have an older Powerbook Apple MacBook Pro Core Duo 2.16GHz 15" (2006) - A1150 that has been working fine but all of a sudden today developed a problem where it will not start with the adapter plugged in, but will start fine on battery alone. However, once started, if the adapter is plugged in it immediately powers down. I suspected the adapter and tried a known good one and it has the same issue.
i need to find out how to get my hands on the correct adapter to connect my macbook pro to my old G4 20 inch cinema display. i know there is an expensive powered unit, that is an adc to dvi adapter, but there is also just a regular dvi to adc adapter, and im not sure which one i need? or how to get my hands on one that doesnt cost over $200 (the powered one, if thats what i need)
I need one that works in both windows and Apple, I've been searching all over and I can't find one that is guaranteed to work with both. I was wondering if anyone is using a usb to ethernet and if anyone can point me into the right direction.
Just wanted to share how well the Monoprice USB 2 gigabit ethernet adapter works on the new MacBook Air. It costs only $20. The speed I get is 30Mbyte/s over my wired home network. Here is the link: [URL]. For Mac OS X, you must use the drivers on the enclosed mini-CD as the default Apple ones do not work. For Bootcamp/Windows 7, download from [URL] the chip manufacturer. Works great and much faster than Apple's fast Ethernet adapter or WLAN.
Hope I can get this clear before buying a new MBair 1.86 SSD. Can I connect to the MB air the ethernet / USB adapter via a USB hub? Via the USB hub of the extrenal keyboard? Via the USB hub of the new 24" led display?
I have a MacBook 13" (not under warranty). When the charger is connected it does not light or charge the battery. I have tested the battery and charger on another MacBook and they are fine. I have reset PRAM and SMC. Cleaned both the charger contacts and the ones on the computer. Occasionally if I leave the charger connected to the computer for several minutes I get a faint flickering light (I cant even really tell if the light is green or orange or sort of both colors combined) My guess is that something has burnt out on the main logic board. I have the computer open and have found one fuse (F 790) that is in tact. Can someone with a service manual give me some test points and possible components (voltages, etc) to check.
I also looked about for this but couldn't find anything.Im currently using a 13" mac book (Which i love) But the monitor is sooo small for using programs like logic and reason ect at the same time. I need to use an external monitor for this. I know you can get an adapter for this but do you have to duel screen your laptop with the screen. OR (This is my question) Can you keep your macbook closed maybe on a shelf somewhere and still use your macbook with a keyboard/mouse and the external monitor?
Does anyone have any experience with a non-Apple USB to ethernet adapter on the Macbook Air? They be found on eBay for as little as 3 bucks, and I wonder if it'll be plug-and-play like the OEM adapter, which is $29.
I've seen a video (although in German) of a magnetic USB adapter.
In the video, the girl plugs in a male USB piece into the car's radio and fits a female USB piece on the end of a USB Drive. They magnetically attached and the radio played music.
The magnetic pieces really reminded me of the MagSafe adapter.
Does anyone know where to find the magnetic USB adapter?
I want to use it to simplify docking my MacBook Pro so I only plug in the MagSafe and USB. I'll have input devices, USB sound card, external hard drive and my iPod plugged into the USB hub hidden under the desk.
this might have been discussed before, but I just cannot find a threat about it: May I use my old 85W Brick of my older 15″ for the new unibody 13" Macbook Pro? The MacSafe Adapter certainly fits. But is ist safe to use it ?
I have a macbook that is not wireless n enabled. i know i could take apart the macbook and install a new airport card that is and that would work (and probably will one day soon) for the time being would a usb adapter work the same?
Also airport seems to drop its connection pretty frequently and doesn't like to work more than a few feet away from the docking station. I'm hoping it's because the airport card is old. Would an adapter fix this as well?
I have a Macbook that is nearly three years old, and I'm on my second power cord. The first time I had trouble, the casing had melted off right next to the MagSafe part that plugs into the computer. I got another, and now it seems it won't charge at all. There is no apparent physical damage. At first, I could do a little jiggery pokery and if I got it in just the right place, it would charge. It seems that now even that is gone. I'm wondering if: 1. There is some obvious fix that I am missing, or 2. Where I can get an affordable replacement. I realised this makes it sound as if my current cord is brand new, that is not the case. It is about a year old.
