Retina must be supported by the app for it to be displayed in Retina. If the app does not support Retina then the app will not be displayed in Retina. You may be able to force Retina for an app with Retinizer: Retinizer is a small app I wrote that allows apps that aren’t retina ready and are displayed pixelated at 1x to display their UI widgets at ...

To fix this: Run Keychain Access (found in /Applications/Utilities) click "Keychain Access" in the menu bar at the top and select "Keychain First Aid". Run the repair and then run verify. That should fix it!

You, also, might try a laptop stand that elevates the machine and/or has fans or some other kind of cooling component built-in. That duration of daily work would really be more appropriate for a desktop computer. For that matter, desktop computers are the more logical choice for any work which does not require bringing a specific computer into the field ...

If you have used Time Machine this will be rather easy: Go to the Applications folder and open the Time Machine application. Browse to where the file used to live, go to previous backups until it appears, then choose "Restore" from the right-click menu. Otherwise, if you are still using the same computer, then you really are in trouble. The chances of ...

You don't need to install software to prevent sleep. Simply open a terminal and enter pmset noidle If that is tedious to remember you can create an alias to it by appending your ~/.bash_profile with alias nosleep='pmset noidle' you can then prevent sleep with nosleep To exit out of the no sleep mode hit control c in the terminal and stuff goes back to ...

You can log into your iTunes Store account in iTunes on the Mac and download the app there. As long as you have a copy on your Mac you can always sync it to your iPad if required. The .ipa file (the app) is stored in /Users/<youruser>/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications, the name may need some guessing. You can also right-click on the app ...

Save yourself a lot of pain (and time) by using virtual machines. VMware Fusion is $50 and lets you run multiple Mac OS, multiple Windows OS, linux, DOS etc. all at the same time. I do web development, so I need to use Internet Exploder in 4 different versions. I can't do that on one boot, but I can have 3 instances of windows open at once. My job would ...

Word, Safari and Preview won't overload any machine with 10Gb of RAM. I'm going with heat too. Most laptops have cooling issues, esp. in extended use. Try the following: Always use it on a hard surface. No fabric at all. A metal surface is even better. Keep the room temperature below 26 degrees No direct sunlight Put a small fan behind the screen, blowing ...

First, don't do anything else that will cause writes to the drive. Then, I'd recommend Disk Drill or Data Rescue; unless you already have TechTool Pro installed, as that contains a Data Recovery option based on having directory backups.

Sudden shut-downs I would always attribute to heat - dust/fluff collecting in the fans & heat sink fins. It takes more than a quick run-round with a duster or a can of air to properly clean out the fins; it needs splitting open & getting in properly - even so far as replacing the heat sink paste. It's not a job for a beginner, especially on a laptop, ...

It doesn't work My Pentalobe and Torx bits arrived today and I tried swapping the drives. When I put the 256 GB drive in my Macbook Pro, it doesn't boot and displays this image I tried holding down opt to boot to a usb drive and do a fresh install of Mavericks on the drive. When I attempt to boot from the USB drive, the crossed out circle image is ...

Put the brightness of your computer as low as possible (mine would completely dim so i can't see it) most likely using less battery power or even less than it would while the display is fully brightened. Make sure your settings are set to mirror on the display only.

I had no output from speakers, or headphones. And the System Preferences - Volume was greyed out. I tried everything up to including a PRAM reset and nothing worked. Took it to the company tech and after awhile he figured out what was wrong. The inner head phone jack was dirty. He cleaned it with a qtip or a special computer cleaning device. Apparently ...

The other thing to think about is that you can't tell OSX not to switch to the discrete graphics when a program that would use it is started, and this can also have a hit on the amount of time you get on a battery charge. Is that also worth a few percentage points of graphics performance? If you regularly play graphics-intensive games while plugged into ...

You already have the answer to your question. As far as I see it, the dGPU will be only beneficial for demanding games, heavy 3D work... If you're planning on using Solidworks, Maya, Lightwave, or any 3d creation or CAD application get the Iris pro one. It is significantly faster for those tasks and not that far behind the GT650M-750M for gaming The iGPU, ...

On OS-X Mountain-Lion, I can option-click one of the "Eject" icons (hold down option, then click the eject icon), and all external partitions will eject. Will update (if my answer also works on Mavericks), once I get home to try it out on my OS-X Mavericks machine tonight.

The only caveat to "quickly ejecting" disks with any reliability is that they will not eject if there are files in use which reside on them. That said, you can force eject disks, but that would not be ideal if files are, in fact, in use. Easiest way to instantly eject all disks is by invoking an Applescript (could also create a shell script, but Applescript ...

You can use the menu bar app Ejector http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/12216/ejector to eject all ejectable volumes. The only regrettable part for me is that I can't eject them without logging in.


1

I use launchbar to automate this task. It has a command shortcut to Eject All Ejectable Volumes. It's incredibly fast and if you turn off most of the indexing rules, the memory footprint and CPU usage can be tiny. It's much more powerful than this one trick, but it does do that trick very well and you'd probably be fine using the free version for that ...

if you happen to have the same setup everytime you want to eject several external disks at once, you could use AppleScript / Automater and make your own keyboard shortcut. There is a detailled description how to do this over here: http://superuser.com/questions/405330/global-keyboard-shortcut-to-eject-external-hard-drive-on-mac-osx-lion

Yes,replace it as you want. They are both Pci-e based SSD. However,be careful when you open the macbook. It's elaborate!

I always get this problem when using Remote Desktop. Even though race_carr's answer to reset the keychain will likely work, I think the process is too destructive. What I just did was go into keychain and clean up the login->certificates section by removing duplicate, untrusted, and old certificates. That fixed the freezing problem.

Make a backup and delete all /Library/Preferences/ sudo rm -rf /Library/Preferences/* Reboot and you should have the problem fixed.... it did work for me... running 10.9.5 beta here. ProductName: Mac OS X ProductVersion: 10.9.5 BuildVersion: 13F18

Simplest answer / your language tool has defaulted to a language you do not want it to be. So...

You have now changed your function of spelling for all ...

Try using an external usb mouse and if the left click works then you know that it is the Macbook Pro's trackpad that is the issue , if the Trackpad is the issue then I would recommend talking to Apple about a repair.

Use a local account on your mac to connect to the WiFi, then logout again, you won't loose connection, and you'll only have to do this once since your Mac will remember the network.

Headphones and the Internal speakers are only OR option. You can not have AND. If your headset sometimes does not switch, check the plug for dirt stuck in it. If it is not the hardware, reset your SMC.

Priorities in order of decreasing importance for battery care are: Avoiding deep discharges of the battery. Avoiding having your battery constantly on charge or on charge and in sleep mode.

I do not know what is it that you trying to do. The HDMI cabled external monitor has nothing to do with the Network (Internet). Also the "My Trace route" applications is bit out of date. I would suggest to use the build in app called Network Utility to check the internet connection parameters including the trace route. The Network Utility app is located ...

Hy buddy, I am with the same problem. I am 99% sure that it's the bluetooth capacity that does it. In my case, when I use only the bluetooth headphone, it's all fine, but when I connect the keyboard and mouse (bluetooth), than the sound fails/gaps/lag. A detail is that, if I change my bluetooth headphone to headset mode (which reduces the quality of sound) ...

I'm also having the "not working" issue. I've had Internet Sharing work in the past but there has been a few times, like today, where I go in to the settings to start Internet Sharing (I use a modem dongle, so my Internet is not always up and running), the Wifi icon in the bar gets replaced by the Sharing icon for a half second, then it goes back to just ...

As a former Mac Genius, I can tell you it's impossible to buy the feet separately as a replacement. You will have to get the bottom "plate" replaced. If it's under warranty, awesome, if not, it's less than $20 to get.

No you can't add ram to that model. However, the computer should be freezing. There may be hardware error, take it to an apple store.

If I read correctly you merely created a partition using bootcamp assistant, which essentially doesn't do anything but create an FAT formatted partition. OS X will only show you bootable partitions (meaning partitions it finds a system on). You will first need to copy over your data, either including the system or reinstalling and moving over only certain ...

1440x900 is the native resolution for 15'' non Macbook Pros, and the given (best/default) resolution for 15'' rMBP with the pixel doubling effect taken into account, as it is. The analytics don't distinguish between the two, so the most you can infer from the data is that the most common model is a 15'' Macbook Pro.

Apple's official guide has several good steps. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1367 I would start with resetting the SMC: the System Management Controller. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964 If that doesn't work, reset the NVRAM (which isn't on the list) followed by attempting to boot to internet recovery. NVRAM - Command Option P R Recovery - Command R ...

The 2011 MBP (MacBookPro8,1) has thunderbolt, so either your machine is not a 2011, or it has thunderbolt. the 2010 MacBook Pros have MDP that supports audio as well as video (I have a 2009 which only does video). Keep in mind that MDP and Thunderbolt look identical.

I had similar symptoms on my MBP 13 (mid-2010). Internal display died suddenly and external display worked fine. None of the software or startup tricks did not bring the life back to in-built screen. Disconnecting and re-connecting the battery connector from the logic board fixed this problem. Here is the instruction: ...
