OS X V10.7 Lion :: My Apple Macbook Pro (Mid 2010) Crashes Multiple Times A Day

Jun 8, 2012

My Apple MBP keeps crashing on me multiple times a day. It used to be rare, now it is so frequent, it is easily reproducable. I have tried the Disk Utility and  shift+ctrl+option+power btn to reset some unit. but it is not working. Is there a Mac guru that can go through the log and let me know what's wrong? I can't believe Apple makes such crappy products. I fell in love with Apple a couple of years ago and have ended up buying many Apple products, now I have started to hate my MBP I got for almost 3 grand just 2 years ago.  May be this is the beginning of the end for Apple, the QA is doing nothing.

OS X Yosemite :: Having To Enter Apple ID And Password Multiple Times Since Upgrade

Dec 10, 2014

Since upgrading to Yosemite I am being asked by Apple apps to enter my password much more often than before, to the point that it's annoying. The reason for this usually is not apparent, and happens even though I'm using only my home computers, from which I've signed in many times previously and which should be recognized by Apple, and on which I have elected to stay signed in. Worse, oftentimes when I sign in, the dialog box refreshes, with the PW field empty, giving no indication why my entry was not accepted.

Sometimes I'll have to enter my PW two or three times before it's accepted, all with no alert that the ID was not recognized or the PW was incorrect. It's like the system is trying to call my bluff or having me say it three times before it'll believe me! This happens so regularly that now when iTunes or Mail, for example, asks for my PW, I enter it very slowly and deliberately, so I know I'm not making a typo. Besides, I never experienced this behavior with any prior OS X version. 

Is this a new security step—the owner of the Apple ID will continue to enter repeatedly what he knows to be the correct PW even when it's not initially accepted, whereas a hacker will move on to a new guess after a first attempt with the correct PW is rejected?

MacBook Pro :: 2011 Freezing Multiple Times A Day?

Jul 6, 2012

I've had my 13" macbook pro (early 2011) for 10 months now and it's always frozen fairly regulary like once a week, but recently i freezes multiple times a day and says all my alpications are not responding and won't let me force quit so my only option is to restart the computer everytime.It seems like the problem mostly occurs whilst browsing the internet, but i have reinstalled both firefox and chrome and still have the same problem. 

Also I'd like to do a hardware check as my year warenty is almost up but pressing and holding 'd' on start up doesn't work - has this changed?

MacBook Air :: Have To Click Multiple Times On Trackpad

Sep 11, 2014

This is my school laptop that I use every year since last year. I had a few problems last year with this laptop but they were enventually fixed. This year my computer was fine until one day I couldn't open my folders on my desktop as easily. I used to just double click very easily and they would open. Now I have to click on each folder 5-6 times before it opens. I restarted my computer about 3 times yesterday and nothing worked.

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Crashes While Starting Up

Dec 2, 2014

My mid 2010 MBP 15" crashes while starting up. At first, it crashed while I was using it. Then when trying to start it again, it crashed when the log in screen showed up. Then when I restarted it a couple of more times, I got a screen with a loading bar, like an update was going on. When the loading bar is full, it crashes, before the log in screen shows up. I have OS X Mavericks, I think.

MacBook Air :: Late 2010 Suddenly Crashes And Will Not Stay On?

Nov 30, 2014

I returned from a trip during which I used my MacBook Air (Late 2010) constantly.  Upon leaving the hotel I closed the computer and put it into my carrier and did not open it until arriving at home later that day.  There was moisture on the keyboard and screen at the corresponding position in an area about the size of a 50¢ piece,  I cleaned that up and turned the machine on and it booted up and then created. Several times it would turn off and on a few times without any input from me. At times it will boot up like all is well but with any keystroke it crashes to a black screen.  If I had to guess, I'd say the HD is toast.  It was replaced under warranty once already. The moisture is a complete mystery.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apple Mail Slow With Exchange 2010

May 13, 2012

We have a new Exchange 2010 server set up in our office.  We upgraded from 2003 specifically to support using Apple Mail. 

We are now connecting our various iPhones, iPads, and Macs (all running Lion) to the Exchange server and we see the iPhones and iPads sync very quickly with the server, but Apple Mail on the Macs seems to be throttling itself to about 70KB/s.  The iPhone and iPads synced in minutes, but the Macs have been spinning for 3 hours now, never going above 70KB/s of download speed. 

It's clearly not the server or the network slowing things down as the iPhones and iPads are connected over the same network.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apple Mail Sending Multiple Copies Of Email

Apr 11, 2012

Recently, my Apple Mail has been sending from two to six copies of email, timed to the same minute. I've taken to using Thunderbied (which I don't prefer) to avoid it. My theory is that if I can reload Lion it might cure it, but since Lion only comes as a download, I don't know how.

Mac Pro :: 2010 2.8 Wont Turn On Crashes - Monitors Connected Via Two Vga Mini Display Adaptors?

Dec 11, 2010

Just got my new 2.8 with 5870. From the start it gave me some trouble getting it to turn on. I kept trying different plugs and such throughout the house and randomly I got it on. It was working good but I noticed that waking it from sleep the machine will click and the sleep light goes out and a red led behind the grill comes on briefly. I try pushing the power button to hear another click and the red led flashes. These problems seem intermittent and sometimes it will sleep fine. Im using 2 acer monitors connected via 2 vga-mini display adaptors.

MacBook Pro :: 8GB RAM In 2010 Giving 4MEM Error On Apple Hardware Test?

Oct 11, 2010

I recently bought 2 4GB sticks of RAM that someone recommended on here, the brand is G.SKILL and I got them from newegg.

The thing is, since installing them I have had 2 kernel panics (gray screen of death) that I wasn't having with my 4GB before.

The thing is, I have run Apple Hardware Test and with 8GB I get this error: 4MEM/62/40000000 0x84de1318

So I take out both sticks and stick them in the reverse slots, and I get: 4MEM/65/40000000 0x84e0d318

So I am thinking it must be one of the sticks of ram. So I take them both out and put 1 in the bottom slot, no issues. Stick the other one in, again no issues. So I put one into the top slot to see if maybe a slot has a problem and I once again have no issues when running the extended tests.

So, I decide that maybe I just need to retry putting the ram in again and I get this error, slightly different this time.4MEM/66/40000000 0x84e11318

I really don't know what is going on here, nothing is plugged into the computer, and the RAM modules seem to be fine on their own. I guess for now I am going to stick the Apple RAM back in and see if it throws a similar error.

MacBook Pro :: Program Crashes - Unable To Submit Report To Apple?

May 4, 2012

For the past year or more, every time that a program crashes while I'm working in it, it gives me a dialog box saying "Would you like to submit report details to Apple?" I click the button to submit the report and every time it returns with an error message saying "Submission failed - Unable to submit report".  Its not a big deal to me, but I always thought it might be helpful to Apple to receive the reports.  Always worked a in the years past, but not any more.

MacBook Air :: 2010 From 13" 2010 And IPad Owner's Point Of View

Oct 26, 2010

I have an iPad 32GB WiFi and a MacBook Pro as well so I was trying very hard to justify myself in getting an 11" MBA but ending up talking myself out of it. The 13" MBP is perfect for my uses. It's already lightweight and portable as it is. After playing with the 11" in the Apple store, I was impressed on how light it was. This no doubt blows away any netbook or any notebook in it's weight class in terms of size and performance. However, the MBP's battery life, hard drive space, and processing power OUTWEIGHS the reasons of dumping my 13" MBP for the Air. Also, I have it hooked up to a 21.5 Inch HP monitor at home and it's good enough to use as a main computer at home, and light enough to take on the road.

If I needed to lookup something quickly in bed or around the house, that's where the iPad comes in. If I needed to send a quick e-mail, my HTC Evo is already great at doing that. If I didn't have a 13" MBP or even the iPad, I would have most likely went ahead and purchased the MBA. Just now at this point, spending another $1000+ or getting rid of my MBP doesn't make much sense... yet.

MacBook Pro :: Worth Buying 13" 2010 Or MB 2010 Better?

Apr 15, 2010

I've been lurking MacRumors ever since 'the wait for Arrandale' began and finally decided to sign up now so I could post this thread. I've been a Windows user for a long time now and I have a Win7 rig at home. However, I'll be going to uni later this year so I need a good portable notebook that's suitable for the common mailing 'n surfing, but also for doing some programming in Eclipse (Java) and PHP work etc. I still have my Win7 box at home for gaming and things that require larger screensize, but for the notebook... I feel really attracted to OSX with a MBP.

It will be my first Mac, but my desktop dualboots with OSX and I love it. So that's why I have decided that my school notebook will be a Mac. This is why I have been closely watching the rumors for the new MBPs and ofcourse I was pretty disappointed when I saw that the 13" model still had a C2D cpu... It's not that I need a beefed up CPU in my notebook (... I have a 3.6 GHz quad at home ), but it feels 'wrong' to buy a MBP 13": even the 2009 MacBook has a C2D, so what will the MB 2010 update bring? Is it really worth the extra money? Anyone with a similar situation?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Upgrading USB 2.0 To USB 3.0 (MacBook Pro Mid 2010)?

Jun 4, 2012

if it is possible to upgrade the USB 2.0s on the MacBook Pro (2010) to USB 3.0s? I know the new Macbooks are dropping soon with 3.0s on em, and Instead of swapping out computers entirely, I am interested in upgrading my internals as far as I can, just to keep up with the curve and to increase my Macs performance. (2) will the new hardware work with Lion? Im not sure if there would be any type of hardware-recognition issues associated with the upgrade. (3) If not, would it likely work with Mountian Lion? 

And Lastly (4), How is it done? Im sure its pretty straitforward after popping off the base plate and getting a look inside the Notebook, but Im actually going to purchace new RAM to increase the speed at which my Mac runs, and new USBs, and possibly even a boosted HDD to throw inside and Instead of taking the back off so many times, I kindof wanna do it all at once.I cant be the only one who wants to boost the USBs.

Mac Pro :: Apple Radeon 5770 / 5870 In Pre 2010 Model?

Aug 27, 2010

seeing as there's at least 3 threads on this topic, and I've been posting in all of them, I figured I'd create this thread to help consolidate the info we know so far. Please note, this is for *OFFICIAL* Apple Radeon 5770/5870 cards, NOT flashed cards. I'll also try to keep it updated with more info as it comes in. Also, feel free to chime in if something is wrong.

- 5870 and 5770 work with no some issues in 2009 and 2008 Mac Pro's

- UPDATE: Weepul pointed out that Rob-ART from Barefeats had some trouble with a 30" Cinema Display and a MDP --> dual link DVI adapter on 2008/09/10 models, though he thinks this may be due to a bad adapter

- UPDATE 2: Rob-ART says OWC got a 30" working on MDP of 5870. (post)- UPDATE 3: grey17 says the 5770 works in 2009 Mac Pro (link)- 5870 and 5770 work in SOME 2006 Mac Pro's:

- Rob-ART from Barefeats says it works.

- OWC says the 5770 only works with DVI works flawlessly on 2006/2007 (MDP and DVI) (post) (confirmed by netkas), and the 5870 doesn't work at all. (link).......

MacBook Pro :: Odd Booting After Installing Lion On 2010?

Feb 18, 2012

I installed Lion (10.7.3) on my mid-2010 MacBook Pro today. I noticed that when it boots, it starts the normal gray screen with Apple logo, then after a second it flashes and then a warmer shade of gray with Apple logo appears before logging in. Why does my computer do this? I have searched high and low on the internet, only found one thread where anyone mentioned this and that person never received a suitable reply other than "me too!". I've watched YouTube videos of various Macs booting Lion and have not seen this anywhere. Does anyone know why this occurs and if it is normal or what?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Fall 2010 Macbook Recovery?

Apr 12, 2012

I installed os x lion on my 2010 13"macbook,it worked fine until 2 days ago. It was in the process of updating and froze, after letting it sit for hours, I powered it down when it powered back up I got the apple logo and spinning gear. Since that time I have tried pressing C,D(with and without my osx disc in the drive) no luck. Upon learning to press C,P,R, and COMM. for PRAM I would get  a screen with options to repair/verfiy dics, reinstall lion, etc.. I tried them all again nothing has worked.  I believe my os x disc is damaged that's why its not working. Currently I get the gray creen with the spinning earth and exclamation point that times out. I fear at this point I'm out luck until I get back to the states.
