OS X Yosemite :: MacBook Pro Hangs Randomly When Opening A Graphics Heavy Website In Chrome

Dec 7, 2014

Product Name - MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012)
Processor - 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory - 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
Serial Number - C02J1192DKQ4 
OS - OSX 10.10 .1(Yosemite) 

Problem - It happened couple of time, earlier it happened when I was opening "Nordstorm.com" (I know, it was Black Friday time ) and it happened yesterday again, while opening VICE.com. When the problem occurs, machine hangs and after some time I can move cursor, but can't do anything. I have to hard restart the machine. after machine restarts, it shows a popup saying that a graphics problem detected and do you want to report it.

I suggested switching off "graphics switching" from energy menu in system preferences. even that crashed the machine first time when I tried that. So I have graphics switching off for now. Don't know for sure if it is OSX bug, Chrome/Browser bug or something else.

Mac Pro :: 8 Core - Too Much For Heavy Hi-res Graphics - Light Audio Video?

Jul 2, 2010

Is the 8 core overkill for heavy hi-res graphic design, but low use audio and video editing?

I have no experience with the current Mac Pro's. I have a 1,1 original, but I understand that the Nehalem processor is far superior to the Woodcrest from the original.

Question is, with 3300 as the base of an 8 core, does a 2d designer really need that extra processor?

MacBook Pro :: New I5 Cannot Switch Google Chrome And Graphics

Jun 6, 2010

After installing adobe cs5 on my computer, gfxcardstatus has been going crazy changing between intel and nvidia graphics. I happens at random, while using google chrome. For instance, the front page o [URL] triggers the nvidia graphics to come one. When i navigate to these forums, it switches back to intel. When I log into gmail, its fine, until gmail signs me into gchat(i disables video chatting b/c i know that was a known issue with turning on the nvidia card)

all of a sudden this mackeeper website keeps opening in safari. It opens even when I click to go to a different web page.I close the window, a new one is always popping up. I want to know if there is a way to permanently get rid of this/stop this from happening? Is it a virus? Should I take my laptop in to get this problem fixed?

MacBook Pro :: Yosemite Hangs After An Hour

Dec 11, 2014

URL....I had a troublesome upgrade to Yosemite on my 2010 MBP with a custom 128 GB SSD installed. I had to abort installation and then recovered from that by reinstalling OSX via recovery mode. Now everything works fine except for the fact that the system freezes (spinning beach ball, can move windows, cannot access force quit or change focus) consistently one hour after boot. Even after several hours nothing happens and the only option is to hard reset. Booting in safe mode has the same effect.

any problems in the system logs, and after a forced restart, no crash report is generated. I don't know what happened for the user in the linked thread, but our issues seem quite similar - what could this be? Some kind of daemon blocking after one hour?

Hardware :: New AirPort Extreme Randomly Hangs / Not Work?

Dec 19, 2009

I got a new airport extreme and sometimes the internet will take 40 seconds to load or not work at all. Normally theres about 7 seconds before it loads. My old router does not do this. During these slow times I try my old router and it works perfectly and instantly. I read it could be software or is my router broken? It hangs or doesn't work on both mac, pc, and my xbox and ps3. Whats really weird is I think it even hangs through ethernet because my xbox takes a lot longer to load basic images?

ITunes For Mac :: Randomly Opening And Playing Songs?

Sep 6, 2014

iTunes was open and I was listening to my music through my headphones when it paused randomly. I unpaused it and went on my way, but a few seconds later it paused again, then unpaused. I dealt with it for a little while, then I decided to close iTunes and listen to Pandora. Now iTunes is opening and playing music by itself, no matter how many times I quit it.

Software :: Unable To View Email - Safari And Firefox Not Opening Website

Aug 17, 2009

I have been having problems with my Safari and firefox. They both say they are up to date. When I use fire fox to look at Hotmail.com, it takes a while to load and when I try to open mail in new tabs, it opens a tab saying "javascript;;".

When I use safari to look at hotmail, it does an infinite loop and stays blank..the URL thingy just goes in loops. I mostly use fire fox, and some times when I go to type, I will get a 10 second delay before my text appears..

OS X Yosemite :: Cannot Connect To Google Related Website Only

Dec 11, 2014

The problem is that my mac cannot connected to google related website(including "www.google.com","youtube.com",map and other websites), I list some detail points bellow.

1. I have tried both safari and Chrome. They both didn't work, so it should not because of the browser.

2. I have tried to use an iPhone, which was in the same wifi, to access these websites, and it worked well. Thus it should not because of the website connection.

3. I user "terminal" to ping "www.google.com", there is no data transmitted. By the way, it works well with other websites like Facebook except google related

4. Surprisingly, it can access google through "www.google.com.au" and some IP address. 

I attach some pictures to illustrate this!

OS X Yosemite :: PS3 Controller Randomly Stopped Working

Dec 12, 2014

So my paired Bluetooth PS3 controller just stopped connecting with my mid-2011 iMac today. It says it is connected in the drop-down Bluetooth menu, I can see the flashing red lights, but it no longer works with any of the games it did 1-2 days ago.

I did download USB Overdrive to use the PS3 controller plugged in (with Expendabros, which was crashing when I tried to use the controller wirelessly, a known bug) yesterday, and it worked with that. Anyway, I made sure Overdrive was not selected as active in System Preferences. I tried that little reset button on the controller itself. Charged it, of course (it was almost full anyway). Restarted my computer. Add resetting SMC and PRAM (the latter always makes me nervous, as it really screwed up my wifi settings once) to the list. I tried removing the device from the drop-down menu bar list and repairing, no luck. Is it odd that it is showing up in the drop-down list, but not in the list in Bluetooth System Preferences?

In addition, I looked at my System Profile, and the PS3 controller is listed as NOT paired...Lastly, I tried to find com.apple.Bluetooth.plist in "Preferences" under Library (to try deleting it), but I couldn't find it. I did find com.apple.I don't believe there were any OS updates recently that could have changed Bluetooth somehow.

Mac Pro :: 2009 - Graphics Glitches / Freezing In Yosemite?

Dec 6, 2014

I have a 2009 Mac Pro that is running 10.10.1. It is using a Radeon 4870 still from the factory. I have had a mostly flawless experience in the last 5 years with the system, but it has lately been displaying graphical problems and then freezing completely. After the display does quirky stuff that I am attaching in the image, I can only move the cursor. No other actions can be performed, and the only option I have is a hard shutdown with the power button. Usually after I do this, the machine will boot with the chime, but no startup screen will ever appear. It just sets blank. The only way I have found around this is to hold the option key, then boot to my primary drive. 

I notice this seems to happen after the computer has woken from sleep. But, the issue originally appeared for the first time after updating to the newest Logitech Control panel for my mouse. I thought it was that, so I removed it and am no longer using that at all. The issue still exists. 

Here is an image of what the screen typically does.

OS X Yosemite :: Graphics Programs Crash And Run Impossibly Slow After Upgrade

Dec 3, 2014

I have had nothing but problems since I upgraded to Yosemite. My graphics programs crash and run impossibly slow. I have to restart constantly to clear maxed out memory. My internet speed drags to a crawl, and I constantly have to repair permissions to open files THAT I CREATED. I can't open file attachments from Outlook either (I will NOT use Apple Mail - my clients use Outlook, so I have to as well).

MacBook :: Is It Too Heavy Than Air

Jun 11, 2012

Comparing the updated MacBook air and pro 13 inch, for the high end version of both models, which laptop comes out better for performance? Add the 8GB of Memory instead of 4GB and potentially the 2.0GHz i7 upgrade to the air and does it bring it up to higher level than the pro? Primary use is for study needs (so portability is important) as well as music, videos, and games such as the GTA's, sports games and games like Civ V. Is the pro too heavy? Is the air to structurally flimsy?

OS X Yosemite :: Stop Opening Multiple Instances Of Same Application

Dec 2, 2014

I am used to having graphic files on my desktop, when editing one I would simply right-click and pick "open with" > Photoshop (which is always open in its own desktop in my computer). Now out of the blue, if I do that, it loads another instance of Photoshop, which is certainly what I don't want. I can have 2, 3, 4 Photoshops running at the same time and editing the same image!

I searched but all I could find is people wanting the opposite i.e. opening multiple instances of the same app.
