MacBook :: Swollen Battery, Still In Applecare, That Apple Won't Replace

Aug 24, 2010

I've got a Macbook Unibody which is still covered under AppleCare, and I discovered that the battery has swollen and became slightly bigger, enough for the battery cover not to close properly. The battery has only 200 cycles and is still on 84% capacity, and I have AppleCare until November 2011, so I thought it was a battery defect and took it to my local Apple reseller. (no Apple stores here yet )

So, after two days I was told that they had checked my Macbook and found the cause for the battery to swell up: there was a lot of dust on what seems the output of the processor disippator (a place I wouldn't be able to reach myself to clean, as I would have to disassemble it), and that dust caused the processor to become hotter (even though I hadn't noticed it) and that too much heat caused the battery to swell up.

But the funny thing is: Apple won't authorize the battery replacement, because they say it is not a battery defect, as it was caused by the processor heating because of the dust that got there by "normal usage" and I couldn't clean by myself. They told me I should have got there by the time I noticed my laptop becoming hotter than before so they could have cleaned it, but now it was just too late.

So I was left with the laptop and the swollen battery again, after I refused for them to charge me for the battery a little bit more than the price that I could get it from the online Apple Store.

any experience with swollen after normal usage batteries? Will the battery swell up more if I keep using it? Do you have any idea on how to convince Apple to give me a new battery? (after all, batteries aren't supposed to swell up, aren't they?)

MacBook Pro :: How Does Apple Customize Their Computers

Jul 19, 2009

I read a few posts that gave me the vibe that Apple basically rolls out a bunch of stuff with the same configuration, and when someone wants a machine with more horsepower, they take one of these out the stock components and put in the higher end stuff. Is this true?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Keep Many Apple Computers Updated

Mar 28, 2012

As time passed, we have many, many computers around our institution. At some point, users were able to update their individual software without admin assistants. However, we have changed the policy, and users can't do this anymore. Therefore, is there an easy way to push updates to multiple apple computers? The apps that need to be updated include:

1. Apple OS

2. Individual Applications

3. Apple Firmware

If you could list what product works best, and if Apple does have a in-house solution.

Desktops :: Volume Could Not Be Repaired Because Of Error

Apr 19, 2010

My old iMac G4 (running OS 10.4) has been running sluggishly with sporadic freezes & "spinning pizzas" for several months. I launched Disk Utility which displayed the following message "SMART: failing". I attempted to restart the iMac but it would freeze immediately after the "gong". I was, however, able to restart from the install CD. I attempted to run Repair Permissions which froze. I ran Repair Disk which reported that "volume cannot be repaired because of an error". I restarted from the Disk Warrior CD. The hardware test indicated that "the built-in SMART indicated everything is normal".Is this all indicative of an internal drive that is behaving unpredictably & about to die?

OS X :: Verify Disk - Volume Needs To Be Repaired

Jun 6, 2008

I'm not really sure what to do or what exactly is wrong. I'm hoping not to reboot or reinstall all together, but if I have to... I suppose there's no choice. I tried 'Verify Disk' from the utilities, but is fails and says

Invalid volume file count
(It should be 712836 instead of 712840)
Invalid volume directory count
(It should be 171417 instead of 171413)
The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.

I tried doing a 'Repair Disk' from the installation CD, but it says it fails because it could not unmount the HD.

OS X :: Repairing Permissions - Same Files Being Repaired Over And Over?

Apr 1, 2009

Lately I've noticed that when I repair permissions, it's the same files that keep appearing the log of files being "repaired"... which leads me to believe they're not actually being repaired at all.

It's at the point where I can repair permissions once, generating a log of repaired files, and then if I repair permissions again immediately afterwards (whether I've closed and reopened Disk Utility in the mean time or not), the same exact list of files appears as being repaired.

OS X :: Warning - SUID File Will Not Be Repaired

I've been meaning to ask this for some time. When I repair my disk permissions I get the following warning: "Warning - SUID file 'System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent' has been modified and will not be repaired". What does it mean? Why isn't it being repaired?

Intel Mac :: Error: This Disk Needs To Be Repaired

Mar 11, 2012

Since a week or 3 my Imac is bleeping whenever the harddisk is put to work. Before this it was impossible to make a time machine copy, it would hang at a certain point. I recently did a disk utility scan which could not be finished (aborted by the system) as it was saying (translated from Dutch):  

"Volume-information being checked Wrong amount of free blocks on this volume (Has to be 38684126 in stead of 38684119)The volume 'Macintosh HD' is damaged and need to be repaired.Error: this disk needs to be repaired. Restart system with another disk (like Mac OS X-installdisk) and use disk utility to repair this disk." 

So I put the installdisk 1 in, but the Imac spits it out, refuses to start up in harddisk repair mode or any other mode at all. It just spits it out and starts as usual. Install disk 2 it doesnt spit out, but I can only open a read me file. Like said, the Imac works fine, except that it is guided by literaly hundreds of beeps in high and low, short and long. I feel like being at a supermarket having my items scanned. That is what it sounds like. It is quite vocal but annoying and seem to multiply every day. In the beginning it only did at start up just a few beeps, then it got more, and now it beeps also in sleep mode.  

I cannot do a disk repair, also not with the latest OS X update (snowleopard, since Lion is not working on my 1GB drive). I do notice though that the difference in this error code is getting bigger, it used to be just one block difference, now it is 7.    

Also I took the memory modules out yesterday and put them back in, as I heard this can also help get rid of the beeps. It did not solve anything at all.I can't find anything on this problem on internet, because all beep related topics are about the error codes for the RAM drives. These are not the same sounds.  Another attempt was to install the cms program to avoid overheating fans. Also no improvement.

MacBook Pro :: Disk Utility Says The Volume Needs To Be Repaired

Apr 24, 2012

On one of our MacBook Pros (Late-2011), running the latest OS X 10.7.3, Disk Utility says the volume needs to be repaired. When I use Disk Utility from the Recovery HD, it says the volume appears to be OK. I verified by using fsck in single-user mode, and it found no problems either. Which do I believe? Is this a sign of a soon-to-fail hard drive?

My mac os x 10.5.8 has been acting very wierd.  The other days after restarting it, it would not go past the apple/grey screen.  Then i retried while holding (i believe commn, alt, p &R) and it worked.  Howevere, my mac has been acting very badly/freezing.  I just ran "verify disk" and got the message "first aid failed... the volume Macintosh needs to be repaired".

OS X Mavericks :: What Can Cause - False Disk Needs To Be Repaired - Message

Jul 1, 2014

when using OnyX or Disk First Aid, a message states to restart the computer, holding Command-R and to repair my disk.Every single time, the disk turns out to be OK. 

Question 1: Is this a false reading, or is the disk actually being fixed by the Control-R combination? 

Question 2: If it is NOT a false reading, since my programs don't crash and I always shut down properly, what could cause the errors? 

Macbook Pro 13, 10.9.4, 4GB RAM
