IMac :: Unable To Open IMac Memory Cover - The Screw Won't Turn.

Oct 25, 2009

I don't know what the deal is. I'm trying to install 2 sticks of 2GB into my 7,1 iMac, and the screw just won't turn. I'm using a standard Phillips head, and nothin' doin'. The screw is now starting to strip, so I guess I'm going to have to take this into the friggin' Apple Store just to have them open the thing.

MacBook Pro :: Xbench User Interface Testing?

Mar 14, 2009

Most of the results were OK but the "User Interface" one. It got a 13 at 61 refresh/sec.

This computer is a Macbook Pro (Early 2008) C2D 2.6 with 4gb of RAM and the 7200rpm HD, and comparing the results in the xbench site there is clearly something wrong.

The problem is that I don't have a clue of what exactly is "User interface" testing and how to fix it, does anybody know something about this?

IMac :: High-pitched Frequency With External Speakers / Connected Via Firewire Audio Interface

Apr 14, 2004

I hope I'm not double posting. Have any of the other new iMac owners experienced weird frequencies coming from external speakers that are connected to their iMacs?

For example: I have a set of studio monitors that are hooked up to my iMac using a firewire audio interface. Whenever I'm copying data I get an extremely high-pitched frequency coming from my speakers that sounds like my hard drive spinning. Also, whenever I'm scrolling or moving the magic mouse I get a loud buzzing coming from the speakers (especially when scrolling). None of this stuff happened with my previous 20" iMac C2D. I have experienced this issue with all three of the 27" iMacs that I have gone through thus far (due to the yellow tint issue). Does this sound like something I'm just going to have to live with. All of these high pitched frequencies are driving me batty!

OS X :: Apple Exploring Motion - Tracking Mac User Interface

Jun 18, 2009

Patent filings from Apple continue to explore concepts for new interface designs and techniques that may or may not make turn up in future versions of Mac OS X, such as a new filing that outlines a motion-tracking interface in which body movements alone can be used to select windows and manipulate objects on the screen.

Motion Tracking User Interface

In the 20-page filing published this week, Apple notes that input devices for computer systems commonly include a mouse, a keyboard, a stylus, a track ball, and so forth, in which each of those input devices requires a user's spare hand to operate. But in some cases, it may be more efficient for both of the user's hands to remain free to type, which inconveniently interrupts manipulation of other input devices.

Applications :: Full Screen Skype User Interface For Mac?

Mar 8, 2009

I think the latest 'full-screen' Skype for Windows (4.0) is the most efficient user interface for a chat program that I've ever seen. I can't stand having all my chats cluttered over my desktop. Now I just can't wait until they bring the same user interface to Mac. Does anyone have any idea on when the full-screen version of Skype will be available for Mac?

IMac :: How To Turn Off IMac Screen But Leave Secondary Screen On?

Dec 21, 2009

I'm sure this should be simple but I can't figure it out.

I have my iMac connected to my TV and am using Plex to watch stuff on the TV.

What I'd like to do is turn my imac screen off without turning off the second monitor output (i.e. tv) as the imac screen is a bit bright/distracting (even on lowest brightness) when watching in the dark.

IMac :: How Do You Turn Off The Screen

Aug 29, 2010

I know how to dim the screen, and I'm using Shades to help with that, but I would like it turned completely off.

For example, if I'm burning a DVD overnight, I want the screen to be completely shut off, instead of lighting up the room like it's the middle of the day.

IMac :: Won't Turn On - Psu Or Logicboard

Nov 28, 2010

I've done some searching and haven't come up with an exact answer to my questions. Hopefully you guys can help me out! My 2008 24" iMac won't turn on. No fans, no HDD, nothing. This happened after a power surge, so I'm assuming it's toast. I took it to the Apple Store and they told me that it is either the logic board or the power supply but couldn't tell me which. It would seem to me that since it isn't doing anything when it's turned on that it's the power supply. Does that seem like a logical answer? If so, I think I'll go on and order the psu from the ifixit store and do the work my self.

IMac :: Can You Turn On Monitor Only With New 27

Oct 26, 2009

I am seriously considering the possibility of using the 27in iMac as an external monitor with my MBP when I am home and need the extra monitor space. That would also allow my family to use the iMac when I am away at work or out of town. Since my MBP has a Mini DisplayPort, it should be as easy as connecting the MDP from the laptop to the MDP on the back of the iMac and then connecting the USB for audio? However if the iMac is turned on, how can I use the monitor without the actual computer running at the same time?

Aug 16, 2010

my iMac won't turn on - seems dead. It's a white one (out of warranty), and am taking it to a genius bar near here. I think it has to to with the internal power supply, could that be? Doesn't sound like a logic board problem, as it won't turn on. Also, will I have to pay for the genius bar?

IMac :: Using KPs (AHT And Single User Works)?

So.. in a nutshell, I returned home to find my iMac unresponsive. It wouldn't wake up at all, so I was forced to reboot it by holding the Power button down. Upon restarting, I'm greeted with its very first kernel panic. (It's over two years old now.) Here's its specs, and what I've tried thus far.

(according to AHT)
Model: iMac8,1
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo (2.80 GHz)
SMC: 1.30F1
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT (512)
Ram: 4gb 2x2gb 800 MHz

OS X :: Single User Mode With A New IMac?

Nov 23, 2010

I just purchased a new 27" iMac last week and can't get the new Bluetooth keyboard (that came with it) to boot in Single-User Mode.

I know if it were older and used a dongle it wouldn't do SUM (since it wouldn't load until later in the startup process), but I was told this new system would do SUM without having to get my cabled keyboard out every time I want to do SUM or a Safe Boot.
