IMac :: Magic Mouse Capable Of Middle Clicking?

Oct 21, 2009

I'm considering buying an iMac (Which would be my first Mac) soon, and I have a few questions I'd like to have answers to before buying one. I plan buying the new Quad Core 27" iMac, in case it matters when answering my questions.Is it possible/recommended to add non-Apple RAM to the iMac? Are there any disadvantages to this? What are they?Is the new Magic Mouse capable of middle clicking in any way?Is there a wired version of the Magic Mouse? I'm not a big fan on Wireless keyboards and mouses, as they run on batteries.I've read somewhere that to right click in Magic Mouse you have to raise your left click finger, is that true? It may seem like it is according to the video in Apple's website. (The demonstrator raises his finger before he right clicks.)

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Boot From Optical Drive By Pressing Keyboard Keys

Apr 30, 2012

I finally went from Leopard to Snow Leopard (SL) by doing a clean install.  But I found I was not able to boot from the install disk by the normal procedure -- restarting and pressing the Option or C keys.  Before the SL install, I had a volume structure problem on my HD and tried to use the Leopard install DVD to repair the drive.  I was unable to do that by using the normal boot up procedure.why I can't boot from the optiical drive by pressing the designated keyboard key(s)?

ITunes :: Cannot Unselect Search Field By Pressing Arrow Or Tab Keys

May 18, 2012

Very often I need to search a single track in an album and then I start my browsing just from that point, using the arrow keys. i.e. I did like this: select the search filed, type the keywords, select the track, empty the search field, press twice the tab key (one to activate the left column, the second one to activate the tracklist), in order to activate the selection I made and, eventually, use the arrow keys to browse the collection. Since some time ago, once that I've done my search, when I press the tab key, it activate the left column and then the tracklist, but it do not unselect the search field and so, if I use the arrow keys, the menu of the search field appears and there's no way to leave unselected the field.

MacBook Pro :: Keys Sticking - Can Hear Constant Beeping Like Clicking On A Link

Aug 20, 2014

I don't normally have my sound on, but I have of late. It seems that my keys may be sticking, or trackpad, or mouse ..  

Symptoms: I can hear constant beeping, like you are clicking on a link that is not working, you get that Ding/beep. It is constant, like your continuing hitting the enter button on a link that is not working. 

I reboot and the sound stops. I don't think it is the mouse - and I do not always have it turned on. Sometimes also when I log in, when you type password, there are characters already entered, and it keeps going ... I have to hard reboot. 

As far as I know I have not dropped this laptop, nothing has been dropped on it. I can not see if any of the keys are pushed in, and the trackpad looks normal.

MacBook :: Strange Clicking Noise When Closing AluBook / Stop It?

Jul 19, 2009

When I go to close it, it makes a noticeable clicking then shuts as normal. If I leave it in a partially closed position for a few seconds, it clicks again when I shut it.

Obviously something is getting stuck or jammed but I can't see what it is or which bit of the hinge it's stuck in...

MacBook Air :: Bottom Row Keys Stop Working After Five Minutes

My coworker has a Macbook Air he seldom uses, but when he does, the bottom row of keys stop working after the computer's been on for about 5 minutes. I just search and didn't find anything, but have any of you guys had that problem? Just curious if anyone's heard of a solution before he takes it down to Apple.

OS X :: Mighty Mouse Randomly Stops Clicking?

Jun 25, 2008

it just stops clicking. It "moves" fine (moves the cursor around), the red light is on, everything seems to be working. I even unplug it and plug it back in. No clicking. Finally, I have to restart the computer (by holding down the power button on the back of the iMac) and then it will work again.

OS X :: Mouse Double Clicking - Unable To Highlight

Feb 17, 2009

My work computer id acting up. I am running Mac OS X, using a standard, single-button mouse. The problem is, it doesn't want to simply click once and double clicks at random times. I'm not sure when it will happen next, but it's getting annoying. Also, it seems the computer is having trouble highlighting text. When I scroll over text to highlight, it will not stay highlighted. This makes quick copying and pasting impossible.

Keep in mind, this is a work computer and I would not be able to directly manipulate files. Also, our "IT" person usually guesses until she gets it right.

Note: I know that there are probably threads related to this topic, but I did not find any in my searches. I guess the forums match the machines when it comes to not finding what you need.

MacBook Pro :: Post-spill, Certain Keys Not Working And/or Typing Non-stop?

Mar 17, 2012

I spilled a bit of milk on my computer this morning and managed to move fast enough to drain most of it. I turned the computer off, and on again, just to make sure that it was running. (I know now I shouldn't have...) I was able to log in, etc. My trackpad was going a bit wonkers, but it's done that before, so I wasn't worried. Turned it off, flipped it over, set it aside. 

A number of hours later, I turned it on again, and now the keys from A-L (ASDFGHJKL) and T-O (TYUIO) aren't working. I require a password, so now I can't log in. I noticed also that some key types non-stop (in the password box) until I press delete, which stops the typing. I've taken off a number of keys and cleaned them, but even if I press the squishy thing underneath, the keys aforementioned don't type. 

Can someone tell me what I can do, if anything, manually before I get an external keyboard? (I won't be going into Apple -- not interested in spending a few hundred+ for cleaning/fixing; my warranty's run itself out.) 

And, as a side question: I'm not sure if my Bluetooth is on. What do I have to do to be able to connect a wireless keyboard? Or do I need to get one with a USB? Or, because I'm logged out, am I completely screwed?

Software :: On Clicking Icons Get Stuck To Mouse Pointer

Jun 24, 2009

Occasionally if I click an icon (usually on my desktop) it'll just "stick" to my mouse pointer, it'll appear as if I am still clicking and holding the icon, and it drags around. I also can't trash, drop or do anything with it. Other programs on the computer can't be used either because it's still using that icon. I'm forced to use keyboard commands to restart Finder, which works until I click any other icon again.

MacBook :: White - Odd Occasions Bottom Row Of Keys Completely Stop Working (potential Software)

Nov 7, 2010

Before I go into detail I have a Late 2008 Macbook White (Upgraded to 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD) so I would have had it two years this Christmas (2010) Over the last few months, on odd occasions the bottom row of keys completely stop working (by bottom row of keys I mean: Z X C V B N M < > ? and then fn ctrl alt and CMD on the row below. The space bar and right CMD work perfectly as does every other key on the keyboard.

Now this is where it gets really weird. I always thought this was a hardware issue (Loose ribbon connection etc, I just don't have the hours in the day to sit down and take it apart) until my friend gave me his old aluminium apple wireless bluetooth keyboard (the laptop sized one). The bottom row of my keyboard broke again whilst visiting him so we set up this aluminium keyboard of mine................
