The SSD is disk0, the internal HDD (which should be disk1 if a Fusion disk is attached) is missing. Instead your recovery volume (loaded from Apple) is disk1. Your internal HDD probably either died or the SATA cable is loose/broken. You have to replace the HDD and/or the cable. The SSD seems to be functional but misses any partition. It already contains a ...

I think it's time to start thinking about data recovery at this point. Half-performing Time-Machine can mess things up pretty badly (you don't need to be being told this, you're living it). This is most easily done (read: Unless you want to open it, which isn't terrible, but definitely not for a novice) by holding the "T" button on the keyboard while ...

If you are using a 27 inch iMac (Mid 2010) then you need a mDP to mDP cable. According to Apple's Support Page, Use your iMac as a display with Target Display Mode, you can accomplish this with the cable referenced above, but only with a 27" iMac if you are using the Mid 2010 model.

My mav wasnt able to recognize and wifi networks. The fix is easy. Hold power until late it powers off. Turn it on and when the apple appears on the screen hols shift. It will reboot your computer. Once the computer turns back on you'll be able to see the WiFi networks in range.

None of the suggestions here had made any difference. But, I kept looking and scouring the web and found (I don't remember where) what I thought, at first, was a half-assed suggestion that seems to have done the job. The suggestion was that a "dirty" or misaligned speaker jack could be the issue. Well, some days ago I removed the speaker plug from the ...

Yes–but you'll need a hardware upgrade and some third party software. Continuity relies on two pieces: Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. These need to be "correct" to work. Check your iMac to see what Wi-Fi chip you have. To do this, open up System Profiler and look under Wi-Fi. If you have an Atheros chip like this teardown by iFixit shows, you'll need to replace it ...

Occasionally the progress bar that appears under the downloads folder does not go away as it should when the download completes. You should be able to remove it by simply restarting the computer or running killall Dock at the command line (Terminal). This should reset just the dock process without having to restart the whole machine.

Have you recently changed anything in the hardware? I had this happen once trying to swap drives between two Macbook Pros. They were different hardware versions (a couple of years apart), and the laptop from the older Macbook did exactly this when trying to boot in the newer Macbook - the old version of the O/S didn't understand the newer hardware, and ...

I was having this problem with some VBR MP3s I ripped a decade ago with LAME 3.92. The problem went away when I converted them to fixed rate MP3s in iTunes (File > Convert) iTunes 12.4.1.6, Mac OS X 10.11.5

I too had this question before joining my college. I would suggest you to wait till July and get which ever mac that suits your budget. My personal advice would be to get something which is ultra portable like Macbook pro 13'inch or Air. I DONT think apple will be launching any updated Air anytime soon. So you should get the 13'Inch MacbookPro.

Yes - turn your unit off, as opposed to Sleep or Restart, at least once per week to enable the built in Apple optimization processes designed to run at shut down and startup to do their thing. Give your units a night off. And do not leave power plugged in 24/7 to the various Macbook units.

As a general rule, you can mix sticks of RAM as far as brands/speeds/timings/sizes. Your computer should accommodate different speeds/timings by scaling down speeds/timings on the faster sticks until they match the slower sticks. Brands will matter as far as they do for everything else: everyone wants you to buy their brand of stuff, but they'll ...

I bit the bullet and bought another DisplayPort monitor (Dell U2414H), and sure enough, it works out of the box! I'm currently running a total of three displays - the iMac built in at 1920x1200, the 24" Dell at 1920x1200, and the 27" Dell at 2560x1440.

I am assuming that you are referencing a 27" Late 2013 iMac because there is no 21" iMac that has that specific CPU frequency. You can have up to two external displays connected via Thunderbolt according to the specs posted on EveryMac.com I have used 30" and 43" displays with my iMac and there has been zero lag. I also only have SSDs (no hard drives) ...
