It turned out to be problems with "overheating", so I installed Macs Fan Control and set it a bit aggresive, ie linear, and it "solved" it. I haven't heard back from the support yet though, but there seems to be an issue with the coolant paste to the north bridge. I'll see when I actually have time to turn it in. It goes from ca 40C to 95C in mere seconds ...

You can install OS X using either a Snow Leopard installation disk (which should have been included with the computer–however you'll need 10.6.8 to go further, as earlier versions contain no online-only upgrade path) Or: With a thumb drive that has been set up to install OS X. You can easily create these thumb drives using instructions in Create a bootable ...

The MacBook 13" Mid 2007 is obsolete! Meaning that even with the latest version of Mac OS X it supports, 10.7.5, the OS is no longer supported in any respect, has un-patched security flaws that will never be fixed. From a security standpoint, you'd be better off running a current version of Linux Mint then Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 on that MacBook. That said, ...

You'll want to load the computer into what's known as Network Recovery (or Internet Recovery) by holding down the following buttons while turning the computer on: Command, Option, and R. You will need to know the password for your Wifi network. When you're loaded into the right menu, you'll look for Disk Utility. Once Disk Utility, look for the name of the ...

I had a similar thing happen to my old Macbook. I discharged the battery all the way down and then couldn't recharge it for about two days. When I finally could charge it, it wouldn't charge or turn on. It turned out to be the battery. You can probably get a replacement battery from Apple (if it turns out to be the battery), but I found cheaper options on ...

I've never done this before, but from the looks of it, the speeds will be limited by how fast your thumbdrives go. If I remember correctly, an El Capitan install is around 8-10 GB in size, so the 16 GB one you're installing to should be sufficient. USB 2.0 in reality can IO data at around 30-40 MB/s (although this depends on the make and model of your ...

The MacBook Pro can get quite hot and the fan may often spin at high speed and this is considered normal operation. In addition to it's fan it also dispels heat via its unibody aluminum shell. This can make the surface very hot but this is often a good thing as it is moving heat away form the CPU and other components. As long as the ball bearing does not get ...

I am experiencing the same problem. The issue is the router. There are a number of reasons why the router would do this....memory of the router is too small, too many connections for it to handle, to just poor quality components. The way you can verify that it is the router is by Pinging the router (which you did and it failed) Pinging another device on ...

Apple uses their own boot loader, which only boots OS X, so I am not entirely sure what you mean by secure boot. However, I assume you are asking how you can tell if a Mac has been secured with a firmware password. To find out, simply try to boot the Mac into anything but the normal OS X boot process. Try using an external boot volume, recovery mode, ...

No, you can't just copy the files from one to another drive and assume that the new drive will install El Capitan. There is a special command to create such an install drive, called createinstallmedia which runs in Terminal Download the OS X installer from the Mac App Store. Quit the installer if it opens automatically after downloading. The installer will ...

As long as it is ok to forcibly log-out the user, you just need to to logon as the local admin using Apple Remote Desktop (available in the App Store) or ssh (through a terminal), and kill that user's loginwindow process. You must login to the computer and not simply "Share screen" from Finder. Then you will be able to login. Here's a really ...
