You will need to buy the Snow Leopard installation DVD from the UK Apple Store I'm not sure why you just got a redemption code. If you look at this information page about older versions of OSX it says when you buy Snow Leopard you get a DVD, but if you buy Lion or Mountain Lion you get a redemption code. Are you sure you got Snow Leopard?

I was getting the same problem yesterday with both my iPads. Finally gave up and re-booted the Mac -- problem went away. Might be worth a try.

You can "fix" this by disabling the build in chrome pepper flash and enabling the flash player plugin (download flash from adobe first) Type chrome://plugins/ in your address bar I had the same issue with my mbpr when it was just released with chrome. Have to wait for a pepperflash update. With the mbpr it took a while.

Here are some points from my Upgrade of my old iMac (late 2009, Model 10,1, #A1312) You can expect a significant Performance increase when starting Apps or saving Data, but overall-performance is depends on you RAM size too. If you are working with Photoshop f.e. you should def. have more than 8GB (on 10.10) - the more the better. You will encounter ...

You might want to start by installing the most recent update to Office 2008 which is version 12.3.6. Failing that, try using the Remove Office tool from /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/ Additional Tools/, restart, then reinstall Office and update it to latest.

It's an integrated chip, so no, no upgrade is possible for this generation of iMacs.

As you know with SATA connection you get 3 to 6 Gb/s. With Firewire you get < 1 Gb/s data transfer. To be specific: Firewire 800 is 800 Mbits/s (Mb/s) not 800 Mbytes/s (MB/s) [8 bits in a byte] its a common misconception. so Firewire 800 is rated up to 80 MB/s.

Target disk mode is the answer. In my experience, there's a pretty good chance it will work even if the display is dead. If Target disk mode fails, you could easily remove the hard drive and connect it to a SATA dock and transfer that way.

You can use software like Karabiner (free) to remap your keyboard keys. According to their documentation, mapping function keys to brightness settings is one of the settings it comes with. https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/

I know there's an accepted answer, but I'm running a BenQ GW27605HS as a second monitor via a Thunderbird -> HDMI adapter and works great. There seems to be a Yosemite bug (ANOTHER Yosemite bug) where the screens will always start up mirrored, but a visit to the system prefs quickly fixes it. Btw, I would definitely upgrade to the faster graphics card if ...

On your sons account you should be able to open up System Preferences, choose iCloud (you should see your account logged in here). From there just click sign out. It will ask if you want to keep synced bookmarks, contacts, notes, etc you can then choose to delete them or keep them on that account. Edit: Short answer: When you remove iCloud Drive from your ...

You pretty much answered your own question, "...crashing after memory upgrade." Remove the DIMMs one at a time until the crashing stops, then try just what you think is the bad DIMM and see if it still crashes. It is possible that there is a bad DIMM slot unless they were all full with smaller DIMMs previously but the safe money here is one (or more) of ...

Depending on your Macs you might use the FireWire/Thunderbolt target-disk mode. Apple-KB: If you have two Mac computers with FireWire or Thunderbolt ports, you can connect them so that one of them appears as an external hard disk on the other. This is called “target disk mode.” 1. Connect the two computers with a FireWire or Thunderbolt cable. ...

A friend of mine recently upgraded his MacBook5,1 (2009 core 2 duo) with 2GB to Mavericks. It wasn't the most pleasant thing, but it actually didn't work out too bad for him and he even thinks there was a slight performance increase (I'm assuming due to the memory compression stuff being a touch faster than swap). I'm assuming that Yosemite isn't going to be ...

A 2009 machine is certainly able to run the latest software - it looks like yours is an iMac9,1 : http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac-core-2-duo-2.66-20-inch-aluminum-early-2009-specs.html Memory for that machine maxes out at 8GB, which runs about $100. Everything would be better with more memory. ...

The problem here is you are not specific about what you mean by "My imac hdd is starting to go." Being specific and detailed will always get you a better answer. That said I can (hopefully) infer that there is some sort of error that has messed up a computer's ability to actually read the drive. This could be something as simple as directory corruption ...
