Windows On Mac :: Vista 64bit For Games But What If The Games Are Not 64bit?

Mar 7, 2009

I was told to run Vista 64bit for games, but I was wondering about this� Since many applications don�t even have a 64bit version out and I don�t think games are 64bit, will they all run under vista 64bit? I have a feeling this might be a dumb question, but I just wanted to make sure before I go out and buy Vista 64.

Also do you think windows 7 is better for games? Will it even run games that have not been written for it? Or would I just be better sticking with vista 64 until everyone has caught up and made their apps compatible with the new windows 7? I mean will antivirus programs, ripping apps, etc work under windows 7 without a hitch, or should I wait and just use vista64 for now?

Mac Pro :: USB RAM Increase?

Aug 23, 2008

I have heard that it is possible to increase a mac's or any computers ram by adding a high capacity USB memory drive to a open port. With special software the OS would write large infrequently used files to the stick and keep the most frequently used ones in the systems on board ram for greater speed.

This probably seem like a pretty n00bish question but I'm considering getting some SD ram for my macbook and I'm wondering if it makes a difference what kind you get?

I've had a look around and i'm unsure if it matters what format your computer is? As in can I take a ram chip from a pc and put it in my macbook?

PowerPC :: To Increase RAM

Dec 27, 2008

I have a PowerPC G4 466 Mhz which has three "PC133" thingies in it, one 128 MB and two 256 MB, totalling 640 MB.

I want to change those to one, two or three 512 MB cards instead, but the manual says something about there being certain restrictions for 512 cards. Translated from Swedish:"If you install DIMM-modules of 512 MB they must have 256 Mb-units". What does that mean exactly and how do I check that they in fact have "256 Mb-units"?

OS X :: Increase Brightness App?

Jun 24, 2010

My Apple ADC Studio Display has decided to stop all of it USB ports from working and as anyone who knows about these monitors you need to connect the monitor to a USB port to get the Brightness control to work, are there any apps out there which can control the brightness of the monitor up or down. I have played around with Calibration but I still cannot change the brightness of the screen. I have searched around for some solutions but all I have found is brightness controls which turn down the brightness but do not allow you to adjust the brightness up

Jul 29, 2010

I have a 2007 MacBook Pro 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB of Ram (1x1) and recently upgraded the operating system to 10.5.8.

The problem is that the computer has slowed down considerably especially since I also installed CS5.

I'm thinkin that it is a ram problem and need to upgrade but through my research it states that my computer won't take anymore ram which is unbelievable. Can I install more ram or do something else to make it faster?

Note - I do use the following extensions in Safari: AdBlock and YouTube5.

Mac Pro :: Adding Ram To A 2.8 - Will Performance Increase

Apr 28, 2009

I have the stock 2x1 and just ordered matched 4x2gb for a total of 10gb.

Now, I probably won't be needing 10gb for my audio work, so my question is, should I leave the stock ram out for the added benefit of the quad channel ram thingie? Because, according to this report, the 10gb config gives 6.8 throughput vs the 6.5 of the 4x2gb! I thought 4 or 8 slots filled should be faster? What gives??

MacBook Pro :: Will I See A Serious Performance Increase From SSD?

Apr 15, 2010

I just ordered the 2.4GHz i5 15" (with high-res glossy screen) and was wondering whether it was worth it to spend the $225 and buy an Intel X25-M 80GB SSD.Will the performance be that noticeable (for the money)?

Any other suggestions of SSDs near or under $200 would be nice.

OS X :: Increase Mac OS Partition Without OS Disk?

Jun 13, 2010

I don't normally have a Mac, but I checked one out from my university library that is configured in a dual boot with Win XP. I did this because I wanted to install iOS 4 GM on my iPhone, which you can only do on a Mac using iTunes 9.2 beta.

I did everything and got it working perfectly, the only problem is that I would like to fill my 32GB iPhone with all my music but the Mac OS partition on the computer is only 30GB with realistically about 9GB of total storage to play with, maybe a few more GB if I started deleting some programs. The Win XP partition is 45GB with about 35GB available.

So:

1: Is there a way that I could get iTunes to recognize and use music from within the Win XP partition?

2: If not, is there a way that I could increase the size of the Mac OS partition without the OS disk?

To preempt any questioning, there are absolutely no restrictions from the University library on what you can do with these laptops (software wise at least). They just reformat them each time you return them. The standard desktop background on the computer gives you the administrator username and password.

MacBook Pro :: Can Battery Capacity Increase From What It Was?

Sep 22, 2010

I used an app on my MBP called Coconut battery. it said that my current battery capacity was 94% of what it was since I bought it. I assumed that means those 6% are never coming back and I should start using it more responsibly to make it last longer. I read a lot of forums on how to use your notebook effectively, when to plug it in, how much I should let it discharge etc. After 2 weeks of my new habits, I checked my battery life again and now it says 96%. Is it even possible for it to go back up?
