On my iMac g4 I've got 2 different ram ddr2 speed sticks in there. The standard 256mb apple shipping stick and a faster sodimm, (1.0ghz iMac). My question is will this work just fine, I mean it boots and runs fine or will I get compatibility issues later on?
I have a 1.67ghz G4 PowerBook that has the dreaded lower ram slot failure. This limits me to 1gb of ram, though the machine works fine otherwise. My understanding is that this PowerBook does not accept more than 2gb ram..... So, my question is this: Will this PB not accept more than 2gb ram total, or will it simply not accept DDR2 larger than 1gb each, be it one or two??
i know that this may sound very crazy. I am wondering if it is possible to take everything out of a powermac g4 computer and put it into a standard atx case. i am trying to make a huge data server and need a lot of drive bays. i found 2 that i am considering: coolermaster with 11 bays or lian li huge case one other thing- is it possible to use a regular power supply or is that propriatary? I think with all of the drives i am going to put in it, i am going to need a more power.
I just got a powerbook 667Mhz DVI yesterday. It has 10.3 on it with a bunch of apps and stuff pre-installed. But when I launch some of the apps, it freezes. So I want to just get 10.4 and install it and start fresh. But do I need a special powerbook install disc, or can I just go out and buy the newest standard OSX version, which will include all the drivers that I would need for it?
All other articles I've seen online and on this site have been utterly useless for information on how to reformat this drive to a standard format. It has to be possible because all it is is a standard usb thumb drive.
I don't care if it gets rewritten as I've made a copy of it, and besides, if I really need the os to be installed again I'll just take it to the Genius Bar to have it done.
I'm looking for someone who really knows there stuff with terminal and permissions and all of that stuff to shed a little light on this subject.
My friend has a 20 inch iMac (model MB324LL/A) and he has bought 2x4GB SO-DIMMS from cosair. He has put them in and the mac wont recognise them, however it will recognise and boot up with 6GB (using 1 old chip and 1 new one) and he has tried swapping the chips about to make sure one is not faulty.
According to cruicial and Apple the max supported is 4GB but if it runs on 6GB can he get it to work on 8GB somehow?
I am trying to upgrade the RAM in my white macbook from 2 GB to 4GB using the RAM from a Sony VAIO laptop. If I put both 2 GB sticks from the other laptop in, my computer turns on but does not boot. The screen never turns on. If i have one of the original sticks in, and one of the new sticks in, it boots up fine and the system profiler recognizes the new RAM and says it is in working order. Why can't I boot with both sticks in? They are both DDR2 667MHz sticks and are all working.
For the Mbook Mid 2009 model (Rev. H), in the tech specifications it says it supports 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. However, I have 2 sticks of DDR-667 SDRAM lying around so I wouldn't mind using those if I can. Would the Mbook Mid 2009 work with DDR2-667 SDRAM?
Does anyone know if this will work. I find they cost the same for 4 gb. I was thinking then I would have flexibility to put into another machine in the future. I know in the PC world this is possible. Not sure about macs.
We're all used to the idea of technology, memory, price, and TIME. But how long do you think before you can get a 512 GB SSD for around $200? I'm guessing 2 years, and by that time SSDs will become standard and everyone will be asking around that time what could possibly make Hard drives faster. It would even be perfect to replace your old hard drive instead of buying a new computer, just back up your data and re-install the OS and you practically have a brand new computer. And of course by that time there will be SSDs that surpass the current Intel ones.
I am sole user of the Mac usually and use an admin account. Though I've read in a few places that you should set up a standard account and use that for day to day activities. What does everybody else do?
My new pretty Retina Display MacBook Pro is sitting here on a vented metal stand doing nothing and the temperature (according to iStat) on one of the GPU diodes is 164°F. It's hot to the touch. Is that normal?
I have a .wmv movie I would like to burn to a DVD to play on a standard DVD player connected to my TV (not just on my computer). I have several pieces of software that can convert the .wmv file to another format, but don't know which format I should convert it to.
I am considering purchasing a Mac Pro, probably at the begining of next year when the newer models have (hopefully) been released.
My plan is to get the standard model with Dual 2.8GHz Quad-cores (though this could all change with the new systems) and the lowest memory option - 2GB DDR2.
I plan to upgrade the RAM myself using memory from another supplier such as crucial. I have done this in the past with my macbook (taking it from 1Gb to 2Gb). When I did this I found that apple had installed 2x512Mb sticks from the factory which meant I had to buy 2x1Gb sticks rather than just adding a single 1Gb stick.
My question is, is there any way of telling what I will recieve from apple if I order 2Gb or is it the luck of the draw? i.e. will I get 1x2Gb or 2x1Gb etc etc...
The reason I ask is that I would prefer to use the single 4Gb sticks when I come to upgrade maximise the amount of RAM I can install.
i downloaded a font last week.. the metallica old bandlogo font, don't ask me why.i tried installing it but it didn't work.this morning when i woke up, my browsers (firefox&safari) suddenly were in the metallica font.. how do i fix this?googling it is really difficult as it's really difficult to read.
Is it possible to put an SD Card slot into the RevC MBA?, I just read that an SD card can be used to boot the MBP in case the HDD Fails. I would think that Apple might be able to squeeze a SD Slot in there to make the MBA even better. Also, the Rev-D should have the SD-Card Slot and a standard 4GB RAM.
I need to max out my credit cards before I file for bankruptcy again. No, in all seriousness, I need a new workstation. Which one would you suggest from the pic below, or should I wait till Black Friday? The refurb mac pro come with the standard ram and video card so I'll have to upgrade those on my own. Which would be of better value?
I'm new to mac. I've tried to install windows XP through boot camp-assistant. Now I have made a second partition, for windows. Windows doesn't work yet, I think I need my mac OS X CD to install some drivers from. When I boot up my system, it automatically says "press any key to boot from CD" or something like that. Now I have to push "option key" every time I boot up, to choose which partition I want to boot. How do I make it automatically boot up from the macintosh HD, so it launches Mac OS X?
Someone told me its best to use a standard account instead of a admin account for every day usage as its better for security reasons on my new MBP. They say u can always install apps on a standard account. Whats everyone view on this?
