PowerPC :: Mac G5 DP 2.0 - Possible To Upgrade RAM Slots

Feb 4, 2007

I have the Power Mac G5 Dual Processor 2.0 GHZ, with 3 GB of RAM, but I would like to upgrade but this model only has four slot, not 8. On the logic board, I can see little holes where the other 4 slots are meant to be, but obviously they aren't there. Is there any way to upgrade this G5 so it has 8 slots, rather than 4? I haven't found anything about this on the Apple Discussions, or MacRumors.

PowerPC :: Powerbook G4 TiBook Logic Board Upgrade?

Aug 11, 2008

I've searched high and low for any and all alternatives to working with my, shall we say, "experienced" Powerbook Titanium, despite it's age(it's not old, it's chronologically advanced!). After looking things up and being able to think of nothing, I figured I'd finally register here and hope for some good advice from people who possibly know more about Mac hardware than I do.I received my laptop in June of 2002(it was likely bought either that month or April) from my father. As far as I was aware, it was a brand new Powerbook bought from Comp USA...with the latest specs and peripherals at the time. After 7 years of using and loving my laptop(despite the fact the battery is completely dead, both hinges are broken and removed to keep the wires from accidentally being cut until I can afford new ones, and the CD drive no longer working), it's come to a point where I'm needing to try to breath even a little new-found life into my true love...or be stuck using "The Rex", my overbearing Desktop PC with its snooty Windows XP and massive noise-creating fans.

MacBook Air :: It Slow Upon Downloads After Main-board Replacement

Jul 6, 2012

I use a 4 yr. old MBA, the non wedge style thing with poor connectivity (just one USB connector). I am the only user and the MBA 98% of the time is hooked up to a LED cinema display (also about 4 yrs old) and connected to the LAN via the USB hub at the cinema display/Apple USB-Ethernet connector (4yrs. old, as you guessed). Recently, I had a memory defect which forced me to have the mainboard replaced (RAM is soldered to the main board with MBA's).  

Since I got it back, the MBA is somewhat slow. It is extremely slow if I download large files via the ethernet/USB connection. Both cores of the CPU are loaded at at least 50%, the MBA practically does not take mouse commands any longer and opening windows or such is extremely slow. Basically you can have a few coffees during downloading! Would a reinstallation of the OS perhaps help? (10.7.4 currently) I also wonder if I would reinstall the OS from, e.g., the recovery partition, now would this delete all the programs I've installed (quite a few)?  I should like to add that the above described behaviour occurs wih the MBA NOT running dozens of programs, just the  little file transfer, nothing else.

OS X Mavericks :: HP C6180 Wireless Printer Not Working After Upgrade

Jun 23, 2014

I've a Macrbook Pro running Mavericks.  My printer is an HP C6180.  Prior to upgrading to Mavericks from Lion, I had no issues printing wirelessly.  I upgraded to Mavericks and I'm unable to print to the printer through wireless.  If I connect the printer to the Macbook via USB it works fine.  I connected it through USB and ran Software Update.  An update for the HP driver was found and installed.  I'm still unable to print wirelessly.  Both Macbook Pro and printer are on the same wireless network.  Nothing has changed with the wireless network.  The only thing new is the upgrade to Mavericks from Lion. 

I found a similar post Unable to Connect to Printer HP Photosmart C6180 which indicated deleting the /Library/Printers/hp folder, restarting, and then reinstalling the the drivers using software update worked.  I did that as well with no luck. 

When I try to add the printer it's just not in the list of printers available.

Mac Pro :: Upgrade Video Card Vs Upgrade Entire System?

Jan 28, 2010

I am kicking around between upgrading video card in my 1st gen Mac Pro (2 x 2.66 dual core, 8gb ram) from 7300 Gt to ati 4870 vs. upgrading to a newer system altogether...

Newer MP has 2 x 2.66 quad cores, 12 gb ram with the 4870 card.) What kind of improved performance might I really expect or even notice when using photoshop, light video editing, 3d graphics.

I have not included costs because I want to focus on the performance boosts sans cost for the purpose of this discussion.

MacBook Pro :: 13" Processor Upgrade Vs RAM Upgrade?

Nov 17, 2010

Looking at getting a 13" MPB to replace my aging Macbook. I am aware of the imminent arrival of the next gen next year, but still seriously considering getting a current gen.

Anyway, I am debating between getting the 2.66GHz version with 4GB RAM and the 2.4GHz version with 8GB RAM. I already have a 500GB 7200rpm HDD which I will transplant into it. Some stage in the next year or so I will look into getting an SSD and optibay for it.

I know that if I get the faster processor I can upgrade the RAM at a later date, but is the faster processor worth the money, or would I be better spending on RAM?

OS X :: Software Upgrade That Involves Mail Upgrade?

Jun 20, 2010

Maybe this isn't the correct forum...I'm a newbie. Today, after checking and installing upgrades to my iMac OS X, I'm seeing a pop-up saying 'my existing messages need to be upgraded the first time I use Mail again." I'm not sure what it intends to do to my Mail messages and I'm slightly fearful because many of them are Outlook Express messages that were transferred from my old PC. Anyone gone ahead and done this 'mail upgrade' yet? and did you have any issues?

PowerPC :: Dual 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4 - Upgrade Compatibility?

Oct 20, 2008

I curently have 10.3.9 with a PowerPC G4 dual w/ 1.25 processors and 2 gig of ram. I want the highest upgrade I can get that will be compatibe with my software which is:

Quark 6.5
Acrobat 7.1
Acrobat Distiller 7.0
Illustrator CS1
Photoshop CS1
Microsoft Office (don't know what version but I've had it for years)

I really can't afford to go buy all the software again and I don't want my system to crash. Any suggestions?

This upgrade is mostly spawned due to the recent purchase of a new iPod Nano... Not supported by my current OS! Man, I didn't read the requirements, shame on me. However, the dang thing will work on my kid's PC w/ XP Pro. I only got the Nano cause it's mac - he wanted the Zune that ONLY works w/ PC.

PowerPC :: PPC G4/upgrade From 10.4.11 To 10.5

Dec 15, 2010

I have a few questions about upgrading my mac in order to use the new iPod touch 4th gen (requires 10.5 or later).

First, here's what I'm working with:
I have a PPC G4, dual processor 1.25 GHZ, 80GB HD, 768mb RAM, running Tiger 10.4.11. I use CS2 for freelance graphic design (and very occasionally Quark 4 on OS 9). I have 2 external hard drives backing up my system, storing personal files, photos, music, etc. Yes, I've got an oldie, but it's been cranking out loyally over the years with tune ups and TLC, and I need it to live on a while longer.

1. Can I upgrade to Leopard 10.5 (not snow leopard) and still use my CS2 programs? From what little information I've been able to find, the answer is most likely yes, but with quirks and decreased speed... which I can deal with. I simply cannot afford a new mac (nor the software upgrades required once that happens), so I need to work with what I've got.

If the answer is yes, then...
2) are there any other updates in between 10.4.11 and 10.5 that I will have to purchase before upgrading to 10.5?

3) Also, since I will have to upgrade to a minimum 1GB RAM, can anyone please suggest a good site to buy it from? There seems to be a million options out there. I know that I should really have more RAM anyhow with what software I am using.

PowerPC :: Looking To Upgrade My G4?

Jun 4, 2007

I'm new around here, and am looking for some advice! I have a G4 Powerbook, which I love. Sadly it's hard drive just died, and I need to get a new one. My HD was originally 80 gigs, but I'm thinking I'll get a bigger one this time around. I'm thinking 200GB, if I can. I won't be upgrading until next month (as I'm abroad right now) though I assume I should buy the hardware as soon as I can, since I know the older a machine gets the more expensive it's parts become.

Are there any specific brands/stores that I should especially consider? I'm also hoping to buy more RAM (I have 1GB now, and I THINK the most I can get on my laptop is 1.5GB, can anyone please clarify?) If anyone could suggest any other ways I'd be able to soup up my laptop, I'd be very grateful if you could share them for me! If I'm leaving out any specs that I need, just let me know.

PowerPC :: Putting A B&W With G4 Upgrade To Use

Sep 19, 2010

My buddy just gave me a B/W PowerMac G3 with a Sonnet Tech G4 1GHz upgrade kit and OS X 10.4.10.

I've been wanting to setup a proxy to bypass the content filters on the WiFi networks I find on the road. For instance, I can't go to the iPhone Dev Team website with the network I'm currently on.

Do the parts exist to also turn it into a Gigabit +Draft N router? It would sure be nice to kill two birds with one stone.

I don't know anything about setting all of this up, how would I go about it?

PowerPC :: G3 PCI Controller Upgrade?

May 25, 2007

Ok so I have quite an updated G3 BW/400:
2 x 80gb HD's
Radeon 7000 64mb GPU
1 gb RAM
Big TV to watch downloads on.

I am still not absolutely satisfied with the playback and have read that a final bottleneck is the PCI bus (66mHz) and that I can upgrade this to 133mHz.

I am interested in doing this but I want to understand it a bit better. Is the bottleneck the data transferred from the Hard drive or the motherboard to the GPU?

Also, I am looking for suggestions on what to buy. 100mHz or 133mHz or what?

PowerPC :: Won't Upgrade OS / Can't Install

Jan 26, 2008

Ive purchased a used emac from a friend. 800Mhz, 256MB, 60GB HD, SuperDrive. Nice little machine for the kids. It has OSX 10.2 (Jaguar). I would like to upgrade it to Tiger. (wont support Leopard). My plan was to take my iBook license of Tiger, install it on the eMac, and then purchase Leopard license for my iBook. Would like to know if this is legit.

To see if this was viable, I tried to install Tiger on the eMac with the install DVD that came with my iBook. It starts up the install process, and the says that it cannot be installed on this machine.

Im not trying to circumvent anything. If possible to buy leopard for iBook and use it�s existing license on eMac that would be great.

PowerPC :: Need To Upgrade From G5 To MacPro?

Mar 4, 2008

I am a student who is currently starting to work on some at home projects with cartoon animation (Toon Boom) and Video Editing (Final Cut/After Effects). I have a Dual 2.0 G5 with 1G Ram. Would there be a significant advantage in upgrading to a Dual 2.8 Mac Pro? I could probably get 700-800 dollars for the current computer so, would dropping 2000 on a new tower give me a huge boost in performance? (Money is kind of an issue but not if the difference is staggering.) Or should I just upgrade the RAM on my current tower, be happy with what I have and quit jabbering?

Oct 2, 2010

I've been a PC user for many many years, but have had a G4 Sawtooth for about 3 years now, its only a 400Mhz model, but I have just placed a 533Mhz G4 in there, and apparently I need to use a dip switch? I just got a standard sized dip switch, so thats not a problem, I was wondering two things:

1. If anyone has a Sonnet for sale instead of using the G4
2. If you can offer up some advice on the easiest way for my G4 to recognise the new 533 CPU?

PowerPC :: Upgrade 2gb Of Ram In 17" G4 1gHz?

Aug 30, 2006

I have a 17" PowerBook G4 1gHz with 1gb of ram currently installed (2x512). Technically this is the maximum ram for this computer according to Apple. I have heard I can upgrade to 2gb (2x1gb) and the reason for the limitation in the original spec was the 1gb ram stick for PowerBooks did not exist when the computer was released.
