May 6, 2012

I have a mid 2011 27inch i5 desktop and the fan noise is so bad.. I've had 5 macs and they have all been pretty quite..This thing is unbelievable. Had to have the HD replaced because it was making a grinding noise, fixed now but the fan drives me mad.. took it to apple and they say this is normal.  $1800.00 for state of the art technology... having had a few imacs i would expect the same as what i got last time, thats why i bought another one.. But this is definitely not what i got last time !I sit at this thing 10 hrs a day sometimes... i can't believe i piad 1800 bucks for something that makes more noise than my air con in silent mode...

Intel Mac :: 2011 20.5 Inch Making Humming/buzzing Noise?

Jun 7, 2012

My 20.5 inch 2.7GHz iMac is about a year old and has recently started making a low humming/buzzing noise from the top right corner, near the SuperDrive bay. The top of hte iMac feels quite warm when it makes the noise and usually stops if I hold my hand on top of the computer. Is this something I should be contacting AppleCare about?

Intel Mac :: Internet Crashes On 27 Inch 2011 Model While On All 3 Other Devices Still Have Connectivity?

Mar 16, 2012

I have wireless network run via BT hub. However because of ongoing connectivity issues connect the main machine via the ethernet. I no longer use my Airport extreme. Since I first bought this machine I have had connectivity issues. At first thought it was BT & while initially it was I can now isolate the issues to this specific machine. I find that in the morning the connection has gone down & the only way to get it back is to restart everything. I can however get connected through all my other devices. 

I am using Lion & safari or chrome or firefox! Have regular clearences of my cache.I have to box up the machine & trundle to my nearest Apple store (my 90 days home support is expired).

MacBook Pro :: Safari Started Running Really Slow Suddenly

Jun 15, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X, Version 10.6.8 and Safari has started running really slowly, all of a sudden.I've tried Firefox and Google Chrome, which run faster, but not much. Wi-Fi has been checked and is not the problem. I've emptied my cache and reset Safari. My disc usage is 15%, my system memory says that I have 2.35 GB of free space, and there are no "page outs". All of the programs, on my computer, that do not require internet access run fine. My firewall is off.

Intel Mac :: Its Internet Suddenly Slow

Jul 5, 2012

We had a power outage and I had to reset my home network (two wirelessly extended Airport Extremes). We have four computers on the network.

Speeds are back to normal: 36Mbps down, 6Mbps up near the first AE and about 25/5 near the second wirelessly bridged AE.

Problem is with my iMac and another laptop. The network change must have corrupted both and each are only getting about 1/1 speeds. I tried restarting and renewing DHCP lease and trashing Airport Network passwords in the keychain as recommended by Apple and it solved the problem for a minute or two and then it returned.The iMac is only a year old and the laptop an older white MacBook.

OS X Yosemite :: (10.10.1) IMac Locking Up Suddenly When Using Safari

Dec 10, 2014

I have a 4-year old Mac and have noticed lately that it freezes up when I am using Safari.  I'll be on a website and all of a sudden, it just freezes. The only way I can fix the problem is to manually turn off the computer and restart it again.  Nothing works - unable to use the force quit command or the dock to close Safari. Why this might be happening, or if there's another way to deal with it when it happens besides turning off the computer?

Intel Mac :: Safari And Dictionary Quit Suddenly While Opening

Feb 6, 2012

This problem involves my wife's Intel i7 iMac11,1 with a 27" screen. She started having problems with her email app (Entourage). I was unable to fix it. I finally recommended that we restore a previous incarnation of the MacOS 10.6.8 by restoring from Time Machine to the main hard drive.After Restore had finished, I tried to open several apps without success. I then used Disk Warrior 4.3 to update the iMac by booting the DVD on my Mac Pro and putting the iMac in Target Disk Mode since the iMac can't boot DW 4.3, but 4.3 can be used via Firewire to create a revised directory.

The non-Apple apps seemed to run fine after that, but I couldn't get some Apple apps to open. They would suddenly quit while they were in the process of opening. I then used the Apple Application Install DVD that came with the iMac to install the Apple Apps with the hope that the Apple Apps would open correctly and then I could update them from Apple Downloads or Software Update. When the install disk finished installing Apple Apps, I tried to open Safari to go the Apple Downloads, but Safari still quit suddenly during my attempt to open it. In desperation, I opened Firefox 6.0.1 and went to Apple Downloads.

There, I downloaded Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v 1.1 followed by a security update that ended with the number 1. After restart, I found that Font Book and DVD Player and iDVD and Garage Band and Quick Time Player 10.0 and iCal and Image Capture and iMovie and Calculator and Automator and Address Book and the Mail app and Preview and System Preferences and Text Edit and Grab app and Terminal opened without quitting, but Safari and Dictionary and iPhoto and Dashboard and App Store and iTunes still quit suddenly when I tried to open them. I didn't try the remaining Apple apps. Testing some non-Apple apps, VMware Fusion and Google Earth and MacScan all opened without quitting.

There are four events that may shed additional light.The backup power source went flaky a couple of days ago and it went on and off battery power rapidly until I unplugged it. Second, a power strip for my wife's iMac has since been plugged directly into the house current with no backup battery. Third, yesterday, the room became quite warm and the back side of the iMac became very warm or hot, but not bad enough to burn skin. Fourth, my wife insists on storing many of her files on the desktop.The desktop is virtually full of icons. I took a bunch of folders that she had on the desktop and put them in a folder in Documents, but there a quite a few folders still on the desktop and I estimate they will more than fill the screen if the files in them were all moved out of the folders and onto desktop.

It's handy and she can work faster than looking for them in Documents. Is it possible that power bumps from the house current or from the flaky backup battery could have damaged hardware or could such events damage software that is not replaced by the Restore from Time Machine? Could overheating damage hardware or software that is not replaced by Restore or the 10.6.8 Combo Update? Could too many files and folders cause the problems I'm having?She's operated this way for a year without problems, but I think the number of files had gradually increased during that time.I'm posting this message using Firefox 6.0.1.

IMac :: The New 27-inch IMac Uses Up To 365W Versus 280W For The Old 24-inch!

Oct 20, 2009

The new 27-inch iMac uses up to 365W vs 280W for the old 24-inch! (going by Apple's published max. power consumption numbers. I doubt they would lie because it isn't exactly favourable for them to put in falsely high numbers in an environmental report).

That means there's some extra beef behind the extra components. Perhaps the ATI 4670 is a bit overclocked and the 4850 runs a bit faster than the old iMacs? Admittedly that 2.8 GHz i7 is going to suck a fair bit of power - the recent 2.8 GHz i7 860 model runs at a 95W TDP, however, the quad core iMac isn't available until November. So it won't be using the i7 860, and my guess it is using another custom processor, something a bit more power efficient, somewhere in between the 55W TDP of the old iMacs and the 95W TDP of the i7 860.

The difference between the power consumption of the two computers is 85W. The old iMac had a 24-watt digital amplifier, this new one has two 17-watt amplifiers. That brings the delta down to 75W. Say the iMac's i7 processor has an 80W TDP. That now brings the delta down to 50W. The new display likely wouldn't increase power consumption because of the LED backlight.

I'm not sure if I'm missing much (OK, two extra RAM chips may use another few watts), but there is still a fairly massive 50W unaccounted for.

Just a bit of fat to chew on

Software :: New 24 Inch Intel IMac Won't Start?

Jun 22, 2009

I just got the new 24 inch intel iMac yesterday and it was working fine until tonight. I installed Skype and as I was using it, the computer froze and said I had to restart. So I did that. It happened again, but this time, it wouldn't restart. It went grey and kept making loud beeping noises. I looked up what could cause this and it said that if the RAM was upgraded improperly this could occur. The problem is, I never upgraded the RAM. Its been working fine for the past day until now. What should I do?

IMac (Intel) :: 27 Inch - Screen Randomly Goes Off?

Jun 2, 2014

I have a 27" iMac. Just recently, the screen has begun to randomly shut off. I then have to squeeze the power button, followed by a click of the mouse. This will bring me back to my password screen. Sometimes, that would be it, other times, it will do it repeatedly, for no reason, and then settle down. 

Just for those of you who are bound to ask me about my Energy saving settings: Computer to sleep – Never. Display to sleep – 15 min. 

It seems to me that this could be a hardware issue, but just incase any of you have had any experience of something similar, I thought I would ask.

IMac :: Base I3 27 Inch Or A Refurbished I5 Quad Core 27 Inch

Jul 29, 2010

Hello everyone, I'm currently looking to buy a 27 inch imac and can't decide whether to get a base i3 27 inch or a refurbished i5 quad core 27 inch. With the i3 I can get the student discount and qualify for the ipod, but the i5 is 23% off right now. Which should I get? Also is there a benefit of getting a 5 series graphics card over a 4 series graphics card?

MacBook :: Early 2011 13 Inch I5 Fan Running Constantly

Apr 8, 2012

I currently have a 13 inch MBP early 2011 notebook that has a fan running constantly. The fans are not making horrendous noises indicating that the fan is broken or that a foreign object is bouncing around in my computer, but more so you can just hear the fans operating especially in a quiet room. The sound is very soft but in a dead silent room you can hear it working, you can even make out the sound even while typing. I am pretty sure my computer isn't broken, nor have I downloaded anything I am not supposed to that would allow my fans to make the noise. I bought this computer on the 26th of December and all I am using it for is simply MS word and logic pro 9. I uninstalled logic pro 9 a month ago due to my family buying an iMac and even then I can still hear the fan moving. I am curious as to what you all think, I may just bring it into the Apple store because it's quite frustrating having to write a paper and all you can hear is the sound of the fan working. My fans are running at 2000rpm and my research tells me that that number is normal.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Not Working Properly 13 Inch 2011 (early)

Feb 9, 2012

My trackpad suddenly stopped working well more precisely is being erratic. When I move my finger across the pad the pointer is not moving and when it does move there seems to be a lag. The gestures are not working properly etc and the pointer would move on its own not by much but a little bit. I have tried SMC and PRAM and that has not helped. I attached an external mouse and was having problems with moving the pointer, however when I selected disable trackpad when external mouse is attached the external mouse worked just fine. All of my software is up todate I am running OSX 10.6.8.  I hope I do not have to get another track pad the laptop is about 7 months old and I have an apple care plan but I am out of the US for the next couple of months so I am looking for fix I can do myself.

MacBook Pro :: 15-inch Late 2011 Must Restart To Access Internet?

Mar 12, 2012

I bought my Macbook Pro in January of this year and had to get the hard drive replaced over the weekend. It has been working fine except every-time I want to access the internet (using Safari) from sleep mode it will not connect to the internet and I have to restart the computer. The wireless sgnal in the top right corner by the clock will show maximum strength, but refuses to go to any websites. Never happened before my hard drive crashed and it's getting annoying to have to restart the computer every time I want to go on the internet.
