I had the same issue. I went to the Apple store today and it turned out to be my keyboard. I bought a new keyboard and all is good now.

The slot is proprietary, and it is not an M.2 or mSATA slot. I have seen no adapters on the market that will allow you to connect an ordinary SATA drive to the proprietary connector. Such an adapter would need to include an amount of electronics, as it is a completely different interface - i.e. it is not just a passive adapter. The only other supplier of ...

I have an iMac 27 Late 2012 and I upgraded my SSD. The fusion drive is a misnomer - it's actually two drives. There is an PCIe SSD, probably about 128GB that attached to the logic board, then there's a 3.5" 1TB HDD. Technically, you could upgrade the PCIe blade SSD drive, but after some research, I found it wasn't really economical. All you need is a ...

I have figure out how to solve it : simply hold the alt (option) key since the booting, and it would lead to disk options.

Use Command (⌘)OptionR key sequence at startup to boot from the Internet. Use the Disk Utility application to reset Mac to a single Mac Os Extended (Journaled) partition. Make sure you are using a GUID Partition Table. Quit Disk Utility application and choose to install OS X from the Menu bar. Once OS X is installed, buy (for free) El Capitan (OS X 10.11) ...

Based on this statement in your question: The (bad) solution was plugging in my headset directly to the build in 3.5mm port. This tells me you didn't have good results going directly from headset to iMac audio plug. Directly plugged in headset sound far worse then over the previous setup. According to my friends, which here me everyday via ...

On first guess, based on the description of the symptoms, I would say that you are having an issue with your graphics card. The best way is to run Apple Diagnostics or Apple Hardware Test. Hold D while booting from a powered off state. Run the diagnostics and post your results and I will update my answer. First update based on the comments: I found this ...

You need to set the system time This article should help... When you’re booting your Mac from the recovery partition and are planning to reinstall OS X, you might be met by the following message: An error occurred while preparing the installation. Try running again Now, if you haven’t used your Mac for a while, the error might be caused by an incorrect ...

It turned out that this error can be just ignored, because the user is properly created anyway.

I think it has to do with the timing. Did you connect your Thunderbolt cable before or after your iMac reached the login screen? I do not know how target display mode is programmed, but I think all sound drivers on your iMac should be initiated first, before you connect the cable. So when sound is not working, my simple solution is: CmdF2 out of target ...

Thanks to all. I was able to solve this puzzle:) Observation/solution: When we shutdown the Mac, the mouse and the keyboard go to sleep mode(this is instructed by the mac to the mouse/keyboard controllers) to conserve battery. I usually switch them off at this moment. For the mouse and the keyboard to work with the mac there is a bluetooth setup done by ...

On my Macbook Pro, every time I switch on the Magic Mouse I need to click on it to connect to my Mac. Maybe that's what you need to do ?

I faced the same problem on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012) and I fixed it by following the guidelines mentioned here: http://www.rawinfopages.com/mac/content/keep-being-asked-your-icloud-password "Go to System Preferences, iCloud and clear all the ticks so that you are no longer syncing anything to iCloud. You should also go into every Apple app ...

Yes. About 2 months ago my HDD in my 2012 iMac died. I replaced it with a 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD. It runs cooler and faster. The job will take about 90 to 120 mins total. Most of the time will be spent separating the glue between the aluminum housing and the glass. Once you separate it, you can easily remove the glass and access to the drives are ...

If your contacts were connected to an account (e.g., iCloud or Exchange), you may need to re-authenticate after an OS upgrade. Go to System Preferences > Internet Accounts and make sure Contacts for the account you use is checked.

If I understand you correctly, what you are looking for is a video capture device. The way it works is video that is sent out from another source like a game console, DVD player, or even another computer it captured by this device and encoded to video. One that a client of mine has used and seemed to like very much is this one by Elgato Now, if you are ...

Not according to EveryMac who are usually spot on with their info, including unsupported 'hacks', none of which are mentioned for this model. This model can simultaneously support the internal display at full native resolution and up to 4096x2304 on an external display in both extended desktop (second workspace) and video mirroring (internal display ...

Last month I experienced something similar. I launched the Disk Utilities to test the hard drive, and the "S.M.A.R.T. state" warned me about critical failures. My guess: the system hanged up when it tried to reach files written on bad parts of the hard drive. I changed the hard drive.

If you have mac you can compile C# like this: Compile: mcs fileName.cs Run : mono filName.exe If you don't have mono installed in your mac, you can google it and install it and then you will be good to go. You don't need Windows to do this. Very easy. Good luck.

This problem was later diagnosed by an Apple store as the processor being blown, which I said was slightly odd but they weren't willing to repair it.

Short answer to your question is YES. But why would you limit the memory given the price of modules today? According to Everymac.com, your "official" max is 16GB, however you can go all the way up to 32GB. I personally used Crucial memory modules in my iMac and MacBook Pro with no problems I would go with 4 8GB RAM Modules (or 2 16GB kits)

I do not know which program you used to generate the output in the screenshot, but assuming it outputs the ordinary figures such as for example Activity Monitor or top would do - the reason for the seemingly erraneous swap usage is simply one of time. Imagine that a process on your Mac allocates 12 GB of RAM. The system hasn't got 12 GB of free RAM, so it ...

This is all anecdotal, tested using a sample size of 2, so barely counts as experiment... Restart the Mac, it's been up 12 days. That would be fine for a machine with a lot of RAM, but it's going to hit a low RAM machine harder. I'd say the simple solution would be to double the RAM. Two of the machines here are always on, the one with only 10GB RAM used ...

According to Apple KB : Use your iMac as a display with Target Display Mode you could use Mini Display Port cables for the 2009 & 2010 models, but later models would appear to require Thunderbolt.
