The color profiles (drivers) are managed by the ColorSync Utility located in your utility folder. Open it and look what profile is been used for your monitor, then select optional one to see the changes. There should be the factory settings and currently used profiles.

I had a similar issue albeit in my case the cause was my usb cable. It was manufactured for power supply and hence let no data through. Switching the cable let me connect my Android device without further problems.

Now OS X(Mavericks) supports Thunderbolt networking just like any other networking interfaces. Then, you can share internet just like any other interfaces. Anyway Thunderbolt interface is pretty picky, then sometimes you will not able to make connection. I don't know why, but if established, it provides at least 100MiB/s bandwidth! I expect this is limited ...

I took the computer in to Apple, and they determined that the spot was the result of a bulge caused by a piece of foam on the speaker. They told me that the foam and its attached components were the wrong parts.

Is that circle actually there in real life, or did you add that to highlight the mark? The scratch could be caused by something as simple as some grit on a table. The feet on the air doesn't keep it very far off a surface, so just sliding the laptop with some grit could do that.

I'd start by suspecting the thunderbolt->DVI adapter you're using (you are using DVI, right?). Do the dots go away if you just unplug and replug the adapter, or do you actually have to power cycle the unit?

The SSD drive in a MacBook Air is a custom PCI Express drive. A new 256GB drive will cost about $450,-. You can order a drive and find installation instructions on iFixit As Buscar says, warranty is gone when you open your machine. Ask the Applestore for a price and consider yourself what it wise.

It is 'possible'. However, you will have more trouble in finding a compatible and legitimate after-market PCI-e based SSD than you will actually replacing the current one. The only ones iFixit sells are used-genuine Apple OEM refurbished. According to EveryMac: As first reported by AnandTech, the "Mid-2013" MacBook Air models all use a PCIe-based SSD ...

Since it is under Warranty, I would not do it my self, to avoid problems with warranty. Go to Apple store and ask them.

In the "startup disk" section of system preferences, you should have a button to restart in target disk mode. If this is missing/ disabled then the machine doesn't support Target Disk Mode.

Target Disk Mode is not supported on Macbook Air that lack a true Thunderbolt port. The Mini DisplayPort is purely a video out port, and cannot be used for data transfer, despite the identical connector. The only supported option for transferring data between two Macbook Air, using a wired connection, using Migration Assistant, is through ethernet. Since ...

Yes. Boot Camp works with Windows 7 and above, including Windows 8.1. You can remove OS X and have a single partition for Windows, although you will not be able to do firmware updates.

Devon, I did some investigating on the apple support site and found this. 1) Delete both files in YourHardDrive->Library->Preferences->Audio -> (both .plist files in this folder) com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist com.apple.audio.SystemSettings.plist 2) Make sure to empty your trash. 3) Reboot Let us know if this works!

I came up with a workaround when I was finalizing the question: mirror only the phantom displays. To do this, go to System Preferences-> Displays and click Arrange (click gather windows if you don't see an option to mirror displays). While holding the Option key, drag the windows that you wish to mirror on top of one another. (In my case, I mirrored all ...

Is the warranty still valid? Because you could take it to the genius bar...

It's perfectly safe to use the MacBook Pro Charger with a MacBook Air. Going the other way around though will most likely charge the MBP at a slow pace, like an iPad charging through USB or a 5W Wall Adapter. For more information, see this Apple KB article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2346

You should search for a DVI to Mini-Display port, as Mini-Display cables are compatible with Thunderbolt ports. A quick google search turned up this from the apple store. Be aware that this is a DVI-D adapter, which means it only outputs digital signals.

2013 MacBook Air update: I have a 2013 MacBook Air, the 39" Seiki 4k tv, and the Accell MDP-to-HDMI active adapter. I have tried flashing 3 different firmware to the tv (39" version, 50" version, and a special version I found online that was hacked for 1080p @ 120Hz). I have tried both the HDMI cable that came with the tv as well as a top of the line HDMI ...

On the Apple Norwegian layout, tilde should be at option plus ¨, then space. On the Apple Norwegian Extended layout, tilde should be at option plus k, then space.

I think I found a quicker and easier fix. At least it works for me. When the volume keys don't respond (happens pretty often and I haven't figured out why) I simply put the computer in sleep mode then re-awaken it. Takes a few seconds but it works every time.

What's happening is that since Apple TV OS 6.1 and iOS 7.1, iPhones and iPads have supported Bluetooth discovery of Airplay services for Apple TVs. What this means is that even without doing any pairing, the Bluetooth does a "handshake" between the iPhone/iPad and the Apple TV that exchanges discovery information. This means that even if you're not on the ...

Is air play mirroring enabled in System Preferences? To enable it open System Preferences and click on the displays. Then at the bottom there should be a check next to show mirroring options in the menu bar when available. If not click the box to enable it.

There are some apps on the app store that do similar things. Here's a free one I found: Battery Health, but it might not be the best (it was just at the top of the list and looked good). But guessing from things I heard before, it was probably a part of computer circuitry that was damaged, and most likely the apps won't be able to tell if the problem is ...

What you have here is a model number, not a "Serial Oder". You can look up Mac model numbers here, for example: http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/?search_keywords=MD760F%2FA

The battery serial number is written physically on the bottom of the battery: Also, in order to ensure at the official repair store that the battery is genuine (which was originally my purpose), the same serial number is on the box the battery comes in: ...and also in the official papers accompanying the repair part. Of course, both the box and the ...

Adding application software will have no effect on the performance of your computer unless 1) the software is running or 2) it installs persistent background processes that consume resources. LaTeX does not do #2, so you need not worry that this will affect your computer in any negative way.

You don't say what version of OS X you're running, but if it's 10.9, note that other users have reported a change in battery alerts after upgrading to that version. http://www.zdnet.com/macbook-users-seeing-service-battery-message-after-mavericks-upgrade-7000022588/ Open Utilities > System Information, click on "Power" in the left column and see what stats ...

Another option is to use the USB recovery key that comes with the Macbook Air. If you don't have the one that came with this computer, that's another thing you could ask for at an Apple Store (or from someone else who has an Air).

This the battery failing, get it checked out and replaced for free.

If it is still under Applecare I would absolutely get it checked out. In the very least if there is an issue, you will get the battery replaced under warranty and be able to enjoy a few more years with it.
