A simple answer, start the MacBook and hold down the D key when you hear the startup chime. This will start the built-in diagnostics and any problems that are found will be listed here. Apple link here.

No, you cannot just arbitrarily solder the cord from the MagSafe Power Supply on to a generic 60w power supply as the output voltage and amperage need to be matched as well. That said, since you're having issues where it's connecting to the power supply I have to assume your starting off by wrapping the cord to tight around its ears. You're not supposed to ...

I was advise against the upgrade that you wish to do. I would go as far as to say that it would be a downgrade. Look at the names, you have a MacBook Pro and you are thinking of buying a simple MacBook. The MacBook still only has two cores, the same as your machine has and only runs 10% faster. OK, your model doesn't have the turbo boost, but to be honest, ...

For the quotidian tasks you mention, your computer is adequate, although I would immediately increase RAM to 4GB, a rather trivial expense. Mathematica & MATLAB, and other CPU-heavy apps such as Strata Design 3DCX or FinalCut Pro X, have the ability to run multiple cores in parallel. In most cases, ordinary apps will run only one core of the CPU. Other ...

So I swapped the original CPU back in and everything works fine. Oddly, audio in Ubuntu worked just fine with the original processor, but not in Mac OS X 10.10. Thanks for your help, Tetsujin.

Have you checked to see if it is under recall? http://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro-videoissues/

I had annoying 'access' chirps, and thought it was excessive CPU usage. Which it seemed to react towards... fired up disk utility (SSD disk) and ran all the checks, and fixed permissions. Chirp gone...

I had the same issue. I do not know how SMC reset might help, but the 3 pin adapter makes sense. I thought of a work-around without having to invest in another adapter. The issue with static discharge is that when you walk/rub on carpet or wool, electrons move from the carpet/wool to your body. This is similar to rubbing your hair with a plastic scale and ...

The newer imacs support dual channel what means that tou can have 2 different sorts of ram memory. But make sure that there are at least 2 of the same installed so: 2x 4 gb and 2x 8gb should work fine. For more info, thid link

Yes, like on every other computer you can mix the ram sizes. Though watch for the frequences (they have to be at same or higher) and the compatibilites.

There is a free app called Karabiner that allows you to modify the keys. A powerful and stable keyboard customizer for OS X. You can easily customize from prepared settings. You can also add your own settings by XML.

So the gel containing battery acid has leaked out and dried up. You need to make it muddy again to be able to remove it, since dry removal is not possible. There are multiple methods to do that described here. (Vinegar, Lemon juice, and others). Example: Mix water and baking soda into a thick paste. Start with about a teaspoon of baking soda and add ...

Yes, your MacBook Pro supports 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz but not simultaneously. All Macs manufactured since 2007 with integrated Wi-fi support 802.11 a/b/g/n and and some 2006 Macs support 802.11 a/b/g. Only AirPort Base Station and Time Capsules released in March 2009 or later can operate simultaneously over both bands. Source

I also ended up looking for good solutions. Thunderbolt 2 supports 20 Gb/s. So it could provide enough reserves for a real usb 3 hub where every port could finally run 5 Gb/s = 640 MB/s. As a single SSD already exceeds the speed of a USB 3 connection, we should not put them through a USB 3 Hub bottleneck to not enforce slowing the transfer rates down. ...
