I have a mid 2011 27" iMac (the one with thunderbolt) and the display is starting to fail after 1 year of average use (an hour of use every day on average).The display is now much dimmer on the left half of the display (the GPU sits underneath that portion) and also flickers the whole display now and then to a lower brightness.I am about 45 days out of warranty and basically will have to cough up $500 to have it fixed by Apple.Has anyone else ever had this happen to them? The genius bar employee thought that it was something he has seen happen to displays when exposed to heat over long periods of time.So basically playing starcraft 2 and doing video encoding killed my display if you believe that to be the cause.Are there any conditions in which apple would recognize this as a manufacturing defect and fix it free of charge?† Otherwise it looks like im writing a check for $500 next week.
I have the Imac Alu 24", 2.4 ghz Core 2 Duo with a ATI Radeon HD2600 graphic card with 256MB VRAM. I will be buying a 2 year old apple Cinema display 30" tomorrow from a colleague and would like to know that my IMAC can easily handle supporting this display at its normal resolution and have a crisp and correct image on the larger screen. I know that this older version of the Alu Imac has the older video out display port, but I presume I can convert it to attach to this 2 year old screen as well. Is there something I'll need to do to get this to work?
I been having disk error with the 2TB disk in my new 27" imac The errors looks like this:Verifying volume ?Macintosh HD?Performing live verification.Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.Checking extents overflow file.Checking catalog file.Missing thread record (id = 1336149)Incorrect number of thread recordsChecking multi-linked files.Checking catalog hierarchy.Invalid volume directory count(It should be 197788 instead of 197789)Checking extended attributes file.Checking volume bitmap.Checking volume information.The volume Macintosh HD was found corrupt and needs to be repaired.Error: This disk needs to be repaired. Start up your computer with another disk (such as your Mac OS X installation disc), and then use Disk Utility to repair this disk.
Every time I try to restart my computer on my Hard Drive I get this message "Startup disk could not gather enough information on the selected disk". As of right now I am running my whole computer off of a 16GB flash drive that is quickly running out of memory. How do I fix my Hard Drive without losing all 150GB worth of data. I am running off of OS X 10.6.8 and have another iMac that is working fine. ¬†
I remember coming across a new year's resolution app.. I have no idea what the name of it was tho.. does anyone know which app it is? It was to pretty much keep track of the persons resolution list.. I can use a todo list but I am curious what an app dedicated to New Year's Resolutions has in it
Lately, my laptop has been freezing for no reason.†I've only had it for a year now. Sometimes when I open it to wake it up from sleep, nothing will appear on the screen, but the light indicates that it is on.
Every time I change the artist, iTunes changes the way my albums are sorted. It always reverts to sorting by album, alphabetically. How can I have it sort by year as to give the albums chronologically? I use grid view.
So i resurrected my old DP G4/450/768/10.4 and strangely, it shows 30% more wireless networks than my Mac Pro/Dual Xeon/4gb/10.5 and both HP Laptops running Vista. The G4 has an internal Airport card(i forgot about them there days!). Of course the Airport card knows nothing of WPA encryption and have to disable security to connect. It amazes me that the reception is so much better in this legacy machine.
Say I buy an iMac, My year is about to come up. (I have 35 Days Left) If I renew it with 1 year does that mean I have 35 days to add another year or does is give me another 365 Day count? Easier Mode: Do I ONLY get 365 Days period, even If I renew it in the future say like 60 days after I purchase? Does it reset to the 365 day limit for 3rd applecare. (I dont want to buy 3 years off the bat because incase I accidently spill water on it or something. Dont wanna waste 400 Dollars.)
I went to the refurbished online store and I noticed they are both selling for the same price. One is the latest generation and has all the nice features like 7 hour battery life and better screen, but the other has the dedicated gpu. I will be playing a fair amount of games, and I am wondering if the 9400m will be enough.
My camcorder is fairly old, it uses a tape, however it still downloads directly to iMovie digitally: don't ask.When I download it, I press import from camera. Then a window pops up and I press record, then it records the tape. However, once it makes a new event for it, and sometimes it imports under 2003! And I can't put it under the correct year!
For some reason iTunes messes up my complaitions if I sort the albums by anything else than "album", such as year. It "breaks" the compilations up (you know what I mean) even if the year is the same. The weird thing is that some (up to 3 I've seen) tracks keep in bundles (even despite having different artists). Also, if the album stays "intact" by some wonder when I sort by year, the track order usually becomes totally random... (14, 4, 2, 13, 3, etc).
Yes, they are marked as compilations. Yes, album artist is the same (blank field). No, there are no typos.
As a disclaimer, I'm on a Windows machine. Can anyone tell me how to set the "sort by year" a default? It's pain to re-set it every time I launch iTunes.
I bought a mid 2010 imac 27 inches beginning of 2011 and the screen already have some greyish color,it takes 300yrs to boot.Apple won't¬† take some of the responsibilities n give a new imac or repair my imac,THEY SAY IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR...
I've been having problems sorting _some_ albums. I'll give you a specific example: I rip Simon and Garfunkel's 'The Concert in Central Park' which has 19 tracks. I want them to play in continuous mode, and in order. I show track number in the columns, make sure all the tracks are of the same album and artist and I don't specify and sort options. Now I click on the column header 'Album by Artist/Year' and I see that track 16 is first followed by 18, 19 then 1,2,3, etc.
I'm not sure why 16,18 and 19 are out of order, but they are and I don't know what other field it is using to apply this sort order since I've turned off the sort fields. I should say that I think the sort fields are turned off since I selected all tracks, hit command-I and made sure that the artist and album are the same, then went over to the sorting tab and selected each checkbox and made sure that the field was blank. Clicked on OK, then went into each track one at a time and verified that the general info and sort info were as I specified.
If I change the sort column to be just 'Album' then it sorts correctly - I think that the year is messed up, so I add the year column to the display and see that it is 1982. I click on the year and the sort is just fine. I set it back to 'Album by Artist/Year' and the same bizzare sort shows up. The same mis-sort shows with 'Album by Artist' so I do a check on the artist name (even looking for leading or trailing spaces - nothing).†I could probably delete the album and re-rip it, but I would rather find out why the sort is messed up so I can correct this problem.
I have a 20" cinema display that i'm looking to upgrade to something larger. saw a 24" dell display for around $200. Anyone have any idea how much i could sell my apple display for? worth even selling it at this point?
I read on another forum that some people seem to do a clean install of Mac OS on their machines every year or so, whether they need it or not. I'd never heard of this before and thought that I'd ask here to see if this is common practice?
I really thought apple would have a much lower rate. My friend thinks this can be attributed to the white macbook line. They are apple's best seller and they are plagued with issues of cracking, and screen issues. what do you think?
I inadvertently reached my limit of authorized computers in iTunes, and now I cannot sync my iPhone. I tried to deauthorize all, but itunes claims I used the option last July. I don't remember, honestly, but I might have.
Unfortunately I forgot to properly deauthorize my old computers (I wiped them clean) and now I'm stuck.
Is there any option for this? Would Apple support be able to help me? A genius bar appointment? Is there a department I could call? I really need to restore my iPhone from a back up I have on my computer.
My MacBook (2007, late mid-year model) is overheating and the batter cover has buckled.¬† Now the battery does not seem to want to charge.¬† Do I need to replace the battery?¬† The computer?¬† What will help?¬† I'd like to use the computer for as long as possible, though I realize I am probably overdue to replace it. It is my only computer at the moment.
Unable to retain "short year settings" in Preferences > Language & Text > Formats.¬† ¬†
Am able to set the year setting in the customize window to two digits with the pop-up menu for the year, which then appears correctly when the customize window is closed.¬† However, after the Preference window is closed and re-opened, the year appears in 4 digits.¬† The is occurring on one of the accounts.¬† ¬†
The same procedure was used to set the date formats in the Administrator account, where it worked correctly.¬†
