PowerPC :: Disconnecting Built In CRT?

Nov 17, 2007

First of all here are are the Specs on it
Blueberry Colored
iMac DV
PowerPC G3 400 MHZ
MAC OS 9.1
10/100 NIC
56K Modem
4 X Slot load DVD-ROM Drive
two USB Ports
USB Keyboard/Hockey Puck mouse (Which I hate luckily any USB Mouse will work)
External VGA Port

It was given to me because the built in CRT came on purple every other start up Now it will not come on at all even though I can still hear the loud noise from the Degauss cable and the Power Supply and I feel the tube still throwing off alot of heat like a CRT does. I can get a picture on an external monitor as a mirror but not as a main monitor. So three questions is it safe to use this way with an external monitor and the built in CRT still attached? and how would I go about disconnecting the Built in CRT?, is there any way to fix this? Currently the HDD is blank as thats the way it was given to me but I was also given the restore DVD of OSX 10.4 from another Mac.

PowerPC :: How To Turn Off G5 (No ISight) Built In Display

Jan 28, 2010

I have an out-of-warranty 2005 iMac G5 running OS X 10.5 in my bedroom. The screen is very unreliable to the point where it stayed off all the time or gave weird colors and I had to purchase an external monitor (via mini-VGA). I have installed (successfully) spanning tools to allow both extended desktop (2 dual monitors) and mirrored display (2 monitors showing same thing).

However, after hooking up the external display, the iMac's bright display lights up my bedroom. I want to turn OFF my built-in display (i.e. no backlight) and have my external monitor act as my main display --- avoids having two displays eating electricity. Is this possible? (using any Terminal commands?) I don't want the computer to sleep, just to turn off the main display (even manually removing wires will work, if I can find a how-to guide on this!)

Intel Mac :: Internet Keeps Disconnecting SL 10.6.8

May 17, 2012

Have an iMac running SL 10.6.8 and every few minutes my internet connection is interrupted. But airport shows connected to my network. I have to open network preferences and it shows airport connected but ISP and Internet will be yellow or red. Then I have to go to the Diagnostics button and Airport will be green. I then hit continue and wait for my network to show up in the list and then rejoin. Then I have internet for a bit until it happens again. All other computers and devices on this network are fine. Must have a corrupted file on this iMac.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does It Keep Disconnecting From WiFi

Dec 8, 2014

After downloading Yosemite, my computer (macbook pro) keeps disconnecting my home wifi.  I had no problems with my wifi before and my roommates have no problems with it still (they do not have macs).  This is only happening at home though, when I go anywhere else, my wifi stays connected.  I have tried deleting/forgetting my wifi network and reconnecting, restarting my computer, i searched through my settings but I don't know what to do. It disconnects like every two minutes. When it disconnects and i go to reconnect, the wifi is still there and has full bars, my computer just doesn't stay connected to it.

OS X :: Kernel Panic When Disconnecting Monitor (10.6)

Oct 25, 2009

I'm just upgrade to Snow Leopard and it work great except one problem, when I turn of my second external screen (a TV using HDMI) I get a kernel panic and there is no crash log for it in /Library/Logs/PanicReporter I've done the "usual" resets on PRAM, NVRAM and SMC however this didn't do the trick. I didn't have any of this problem in Leopard, so anyone else have the same problem in Snow Leopard or have any ideas of how to solve it, I would love to hear it. I thought I should mention I using HDMI for images and TOSLINK for audio that goes to my receiver and then to the TV So when turning off the receiver or the TV I will get kernel panic.

Mac Pro :: Crashes When Disconnecting And Reconnecting Mouse?

Dec 14, 2009

I have a 2009 Mac Pro ("Cyrus").

Connected to it are via USB and video an Apple Cinema Display.

Connected to the Cinema Display are an apple keyboard and to it an Apple Mighty Mouse.

Sometimes the mouse pointer freezes (or rather is found frozen when I return to the machine and the screen saver was on) and the only way to get it back to work is to disconnect the mouse and reconnect it.

However, every second or so time I do this, the Mac Pro crashes. The screen turns darker and in the middle a multilingual text tells me that I have to restart my Mac.

Does this happen to anybody else?

How can I prevent it and why does Mac OS X crash over a USB event?

MacBook Pro :: Shut Down Before Disconnecting Everything And Again Before Reconnecting?

May 27, 2012

I have a 2.3 GHz MBP bought in 2011. It sits on my desk with the power adapter plugged in and I have a large monitor, keyboard and mouse attached. Typically every weekend or at least every other weekend I disconnect everything from the MBP and carry it around for a day or so until the battery is less than half charged. Then I reconnect everything and let it charge up.

1. Is what I do necessary and if so is that frequency of recharging sufficient?

2. Is it advisable to do a shut down before disconnecting everything and again before reconnecting?

3. If letting the battery run down once in a while is advisable, as a mater of convenience could I leave the MBP connected on my desk and just remove the power adapter, so it would still be connected to the monitor, keyboard and mouse just using the battery, and then reconnect the adapter when the battery is low?

OS X Yosemite :: WiFi Keeps Disconnecting On MacBook Pro?

Dec 4, 2014

Macbook Pro (Mid-2012) Which I purchased 4 months ago. 

It keeps dropping the signal about every 5 minutes, only on my home network. It's only this device too, since my phone and all of my roomates' devices are unphased. (streaming videos like it's no big deal) 

This started happening after we lost connectivity with the snow a few days ago here in Seattle. I have tried all sort of troubleshooting, including the DNS thingy and restarting the router.

MacBook Pro :: AirPort Keeps Disconnecting And Searching For Network

Sep 9, 2010

Lately I've been noticing that my Airport disconnects about every 10 - 15 mins or so and then reconnects after it searches for a network, which is mine. 99% of the time I'm sitting right in front of my router. I've reset the router, rebooted, reset my pram, and the problem still persists. This issue doesn't occur on my girlfriends HP.
