This is not normal behavior. I have the exact same model and connect it to an old 30" Apple Cinema Display via thunderbolt adapter. If your mac goes wild without having any app (like photoshop / illustrator) running it's not good . It looks like your external graphic card isn't working properly. Do you have these issue with other cinema display(s)? And ...

...reattaching the cables in the electronics of the computer. I am assuming by this statement, you have opened up your Macbook for whatever reason. Did you do any sort of service? Try reseating the Airport adapter - remove it completely and reinstall it. There are 4 cables that go to this adapter. Three are the antenna cables (J0, J1, and J2) and ...

If you end up with option 3. Screw extractors, then your 'cheap choice' to put it back together is just make a saw cut in the top of the screw [remains] & treat it as a standard flat-blade screw-head from then on in. I presume you have one of those, but didn't procure the necessary Torx before starting out ;-) Don't try saw-cutting it first... you ...

I think in your example you are copying all files to the same disk. If the finder is trying to write to multiple places (or reading from multiple places) on the same hard drive, it will be slowed down by drive access times. It is easier (faster) to read (or write) one whole file at a time rather than ten files at the same time. You can observe similar ...

The issue in your video looks like it could be the Digitizer that's going bad. Disassembling iPad, especially the Air series, is a huge pain in the ass (it's Repairability score on iFitIt is 2/10). If you want to go that route here's the info from iFixIt: https://www.ifixit.com/Device/iPad_Air_Wi-Fi Unlike the iPhones Apple doesn't replace the ...

The way to "fix wrong subpixel layout setting on Mac OS" is using System Preferences, Display, Rotation 180 degrees (from Standard). This makes an external LED display switch from BGR to RGB pixel orientation. However you also complain your fonts look terrible. Under System Preferences, General, uncheck Use LCD font smoothing when available. Now ALL fonts ...

The speakers are highlighted in red. Left Speaker: Right Speaker: The best place I have found on the web for information like this has been ifixit.com: MacBook Pro 13" Retina ...

Apple has fantastic warranty service. Now I can't actually speak for Brazil but I do know that they do have a very fast mail in warranty system. That should do the trick or if you have a local apple store you can bring your iPad into their. Apple warranty is worldwide.

You propose an interesting data set that I have not yet found elsewhere, so I'll contribute my measurements: My genuine magsafe 2 85W charger (included with macbook pro purchase from Apple store): 315 g = body + US two-prong wall adapter + charging cable 297 g = body + charging cable 259 g = body only (charging cable resting on ground) My recent ...

Try SMCFanControl for Mac. It's what I use when my Mac gets too hot, it increases fan speed to cool the CPU and other components down pretty quickly. You can set custom fan speeds by clicking the application's view on the menu bar (it will say something like 99°F 1199rpm) and clicking Preferences or Active Setting.

Compiling takes CPU even if pure OSX so in a VM will take all the CPU. Fan working and hot is not an issue - it will happen (try compiling gcc under OSX on an i7 CPU all 8 threads will be running for several minutes) I would although give more memory to the VM To see what is taking CPU you need to look at Activity Monitor in OSX (which will show Parallels ...

For me, it was a stupid silica gel ball that fell out of a silica gel packet in my laptop case. The ball can be crushed (like glass) and removed in pieces if it's stuck in there. I was able to crush the ball with tweezers and blow the glass dust out.

several additional questions which may direct some insight: do you know the reason for board failures? Were they graphics related (ie., video failure)? some of the 2012 and 2013 MBP systems were known to have specific GPU chip failures, which Apple hid from public knowledge fairly well.. That COULD account for some of your board failures. 2 have all ...

I don't believe anyone can give a definitive answer. I would guess the Apple Tech Support folks would have indicated something by this time. I personnaly have never heard of this level of repeated failures for a single person and/or device. But I have seen low levels of failures of Apple devices at a much lower, single instance level many times over the ...
