Applications :: Different Temperature Readings In IStat And Temperature Monitor?

Jan 4, 2011

I noticed that iStat and Temperature Monitor report different temperatures for the same readings on my G5 Powermac Dual Processor System. For example as I am writing this Temperature Monitor is saying My CPU A is 46.8C and CPU B is 46.7C. In iStat it says CPU A is 55C and CPU B is 54C. Which is right!?

Applications :: Looking For Program To Monitor Max / Min Temperature?

Jan 27, 2010

I'm fairly new to Macs so I am not quite familiar to what applications are out there that are available to me. The thing is I am currently using widgets in my Dashboard (iStat Pro and Temperature Monitor) that monitors system temps, but the problem is it tells me the temperature of what my MBP is at that moment. I want to know if there is a program that can take the max and min temps so I can keep track of how hot/cool my MBP is at all times.

Mac Pro :: GPU Monitor Application Give Accurate Temperature?

Oct 11, 2009

I'm currently using Early 2008 Mac Pro and the ATI HD2600XT which came with it. When I use the ATI utility or GPU temperature monitor apps like GPU-Z on bootcamp (Windows XP SP3), the temperature is about 87C on idle, and goes to like 93C when running benchmark softwares. (I ran the Final Fantasy XI benchmark software). I know this is hot.

Do the GPU temperature monitor apps give accurate temperatures? Or are the temperatures displayed wrong? Because I noticed that the temperature for the CPUs are displayed higher on Boocamp than on Mac OSX.(Used HWMonitor on Bootcamp and Hardware Monitor on Mac OSX). And I have a question for the people who use or have used the Early 2008 Mac Pros and the ATI HD2600XT with it. How are your temperatures?

IMac (Intel) :: Change Display Settings Such As Color Temperature And Backlight Brightness On Monitor?

Nov 30, 2014

My wife has an iMac (I don't know any other way to identify it e.g. model number), and she has this 3rd party calibration software that I'm trying to use. I am not used to a Mac, and I cannot find the display settings for the monitor. There are no buttons on the monitor, and when I go to preferences, I can only find the brightness control. I've googled this and cannot find a clear, simple answer. I have used every version of Windows (currently on 8.1 on my PC) and it's easy for me on that platform. I suppose it's just that I don't really know how to navigate Mac OS.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

IMac :: External Monitor - Bad Mouse Tracking When External Monitor Off?

Jan 9, 2010

I have a 27" i7. I have a 24" DVI Montior hooked up to it via MDP->DVI adaptor. When the 24" Monitor is on, everything is fine. When I turn the monitor off, the magic mouse tracking on the 27" screen stutters. I am not kidding - it took me ages to figure out that to fix I either need to turn the other monitor on OR disconnect the MDP->DVI adaptor.

Hardware :: What Is Average Temperature CPU Temperature For Standard Usage?

Feb 19, 2009

I apologists straight away if this have been covered recently, but i need to ask.I have MacBook with Intel Core Due Processor, 2 GB ram.What is the average temperature CPU temperature for standard usage ( I know that standard usage is very arbitrary, and by this I assume safari, iTunes and let say Pages to be the only major apps running ).I use iStat pro widget and according to it my CPU temperature is 55*C. Is this too high? Lately the fan has been turning on more recently almost without any apps running so I think that there might be some hardware problem. I ran HardwareTest it found nothing.

The macbook is 2 yrs old. Do i need to get it cleaned or is there something else I should be worrying about?

Hardware :: Powerbook With Broken Monitor - Force Boot To External Monitor?

Jan 31, 2010

I have a G4 powerbook with an LCD that only displays the top 25% of the screen. I've been using an external monitor with it just fine. Today, I reinstalled the OS and ran into a problem. The main OSX startup menu (you know, where it asks for your location, timezone, personal info, etc) is prompting me for information, and I can't see the forms to fill them in! The external monitor defaults to "extended" as opposed to "mirrored", and the forms are embedded, meaning I can't drag them over to my external monitor. Obviously, if I can't fill out these forms and get to the desktop, the laptop is completely useless.

Does anyone know how to force the external monitor to be "mirrored" from startup? Is there a keycommand?

OS X :: Monitor Suddenly Goes Completely White / External Monitor Goes Black

Jul 30, 2005

I have been using the latest macbook pro 13.3" since April 2010. Over the last week the monitor suddenly goes completely white and the external monitor goes black. The laptop becomes unresponsive although the programmes opened continue running (e.g a skype voice call would continue without interruption although the monitor is all white).

The only solution at the moment is to press the turn off button for a few seconds then switch the laptop on again. It will then work normally until for no apparent reason this happens again.

MacBook :: Using External Monitor With New MB (2.4GHz)/monitor Sleep?

Oct 16, 2008

I picked up a new MacBook yesterday and I noticed a weird issue when coming out of "monitor sleep" mode, not regular sleep mode.

When I move the mouse, the external monitor shows what you see in the picture, kinda like a TV with no signal. The MacBook screen works fine so what I just do is unplug and re-plug in the DVI plug and everything is good again.

My 24 inch Dell monitor worked fine with my M1330 and other computers so I know it's not that. Does anyone have the same issue or maybe give me some light on this?

MacBook Pro :: Detects An External Monitor But No Display On The Monitor?

Aug 5, 2009

As said, my current set up is an HDMI - DVI cable (HDMI to monitor and DVI to adapter) and my DVI - mini DisplayPort adapter, everything is connected fine but when I turn on the monitor, it says cable not found... and nothing is displayed on the screen but on the Macbook side of things, it sees the monitor is connected (I can extend the screen and leave the screen) but other than that, it appears I cannot get an image on the monitor, pressing every button on the monitor does not work either.

Any other information that may seem necessary, let me know. I tried clearing my PRAM and clearing the power and such but nothing seems to work.

OS X :: Unable To Show 10.6 Install On External Monitor / Grey Box On External Display With Black Bar

Feb 27, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro 2.16 Core Duo, and I'm wanting to install 10.6, but about a year ago, I cracked my screen to the point that I cannot make anything out on it, and haven't replaced it. Instead, I have just been using it in clamshell mode, which has worked out fine so far. My problem is that I cannot get the 10.6 install to show up on my external monitor.

I searched around, and could only find one other similar thread that just ended with the author putting it in clamshell and having it work fine. When I boot to the install and close the screen, I just get a grey box on my external display with a black bar on either side of it. I can't seem to find any other resources, so I'm not entirely sure what to do at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OS X :: How To Use An External Monitor With MBP

Feb 11, 2010

I know this is a basic question, but for some reason i just can't seem to figure out how to use my 24" Apple cinema display with my 13" MBP as a second screen. I obviously want to use the 24" display as my main screen (when connected to my 13" macbook) but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out how to use my MBP as a secondary iTunes, etc. screen. I typically use my macbook in "clamshell" mode with my 24" display and when I open the lid of the macbook, it's just black as if the computer was asleep but it fails to wake up when I press any buttons on the keyboard . When I unplug the mini display cable, the external monitor goes black and I'm reverted to using just my macbook. I know this can be done. Does anyone have any experience with the 24" Apple cinema display and MBP?

OS X :: Lag With External Monitor From MacBook Air?

Dec 1, 2010

I have my MacBook Air hooked up to a 46" HDTV so that I can play games on the big screen.

Problem is, I notice a slight lag with the mouse when looking around in the game on the big screen.

When I look at the game from my MacBook Air there is no lag with the mouse.

I heard theres a mode called "clamshell" that would fix this but don't know where to find it or enable it.

Info on fixing the lag from the big screen so that games could be playable when watching from the big screen.

OS X :: MBP External Monitor Color - DVI To VGA

Apr 5, 2009

Macbook Pro last years model. I use external monitors alot for video DJing. I normally go DVI to VGA using the adaptor that came with the MBP. The other night I tried a different adaptor- DVI to composite. Now when I go back to the DVI to VGA my external screens have a yellow green tinge to them. I bought a new DVI to VGA adaptor and that didnt help. I calibrated the color profile, detected displays. and still the external screens are a yellow green color. You can still see whatever Im playing but there is definately something wrong with the color.

OS X :: Spaces On External Monitor

Apr 30, 2009

I have my MacBook Pro hooked up to an external monitor, and was wondering if I can set up spaces so that I can have spaces only operate on the external monitor. Let me explain - lets say I have my browser or a game always open. On the other hand, I only need to look at either my iTunes or iChat on the other screen. Can I have it so that when I switch spaces the monitor which the browser/game is operating on is unaffected, but the other screen switches between iChat in one space and iTunes in another. Is this possible? I tried setting the programs to "every space" but this didn't really make it work the way I'd like. it works for safari, but not for my game. I think that's because the game is in full screen mode. Played around a little more and got it working.

Windows On Mac :: Using External Monitor With XP?

Dec 10, 2009

I recently installed XP onto my MacBook via Bootcamp, all went well, except, when I try to use my external monitor (acer X223HQ) as the primary display it simply won't let me within windows. I use my Mac with the lid closed and just my monitor with a keyboard and mouse, and want to be able to do the same with Windows too when I need to use it. I've tried fiddling around with the NVidia setup program in XP that came as part of Bootcamp, set it up how I want, but it still doesn't like it.

OS X :: Trying To Hook Up External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm hooking up an external monitor to my 24" iMac. It's being hooked up DVI, problem is, when it's plugged in, the picture on the Dell monitor I'm trying to use just jutters and shakes. I tried different resolution options and none worked, most just left the Dell monitor black. I calibrated the monitor and that stopped the shaking, but when I look at the monitor everything is too big and there are still tons of "bright" pixels in the background, along with some faint lines..it just isn't right.

MacBook Pro :: Using An External Monitor With It, How To Set It All Up.

Feb 1, 2012

I got a fairly nifty AOC 16" USB monitor from TigerDirect.it isn't totally Apple-Quality, but its bright... looks decent at 1366x768... and I got the color of the windows to almost completely match. I would suggest the AOC USB monitor to anyone looking for a cheap way to get a 2 monitor setup. And, it runs from a USB port only... no need to plug it in. Very nice. One drawback of this model is that it does have protrait AND landscape modes... there is a stand on the rear that you twist and can stand the monitor up on its end. However, the Mac drivers don't support this feature! Shucks! I had grandure thoughts of having a document in portrait mode all tall and beautiful. OR, a killer long Facebook window. But alas, this feature will have to wait for now... man, if AOC can release a new driver with this feature; I would say this $140 monitor is a KILLER. Still reccommend it.

First, when I connected it the monitor was aligned or setup on the left hand side... I want the NEW 16" monitor to be on the right hand side just as an extra screen space... so, I opened displays and moved the alignment. I noticed you can go up down left or right... which is cool. So I set it up for the right hand side, so when I scroll off the MBP screen to the right the cursor just goes over to the new screen. Great. However, the dock and toolbar are on the NEW 16" monitor no matter what I do! I want the dock and toolbar on the MBP still; and the new monitor just sitting there ready for me to throw any STUFF on it. How do I do that? 

Also, when I use that multiple desktop feature... lol, I forget what its called. Each desktop switches the new 16" monitor to whatever # of screen I'm on. I can live with that if its the only way. BUT, better for me would be if the MBP has the dock and toolbar... can switch between those different screen #s... AND, the new 16" just sits to the right as extra space. So when I switch screen #s, the new 16" stays the same with whatever windows I have open staying there... this might not be doable, and that would be OK... but wondering if theres a way to do that too...
