So, having verified the drive is, in fact running at SATA-III speeds, it looks like this post describes doing what you need. Be aware it requires a DOS environment to run, so you'll likely want FreeDOS with the .iso loaded already. I haven't used this, so I am unable to verify results. Attempt at your own risk.

This is the result of excess force squeezing the wrist pad against the internal components. In your other question asking about heat stress is a no go. Aluminum doesn't weaken or deform that way in temperature ranges where plastic won't melt and batteries don't catch fire. The bulge in the other question is really compression bending the case inward and ...

You don't. Mobile processors aren't necessarily made to be replaceable - often, they are soldered directly onto the logic board itself. Aside from the obvious voided warranty/extreme risk of damage to the board, you would need to either try the software for download to see if it'll actually run on your machine regardless of specs, or you will need to ...

If your MacBook Pro (early 2011) was updated with Macbook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.3 then you will be able to use OS X Internet Recovery and not need the DVD that shipped with your Mac. Also have a look at: OS X: About OS X Recovery

Every battery in a MacBook has a battery processor, which, from time to time, should be recalibrated. Like this: 1. Fully charge your Mac 2. Use it until it dies 3. Once dead, wait at least 5 hours, no less, then plug it in and charge it to 100%, without using it. The battery percentage reading on your Mac should now be more accurate. If this doesn't fix ...

SourceForge is having issues right now. Others are having trouble downloading also. You may end up having to request the author upload the binaries to another source. I am pretty sure if it was an issue with your configuration, you'd still be able to download just not run, or not have access to the internet at all.

Despite what Weird Al would have you believe, it is no longer "All about the Pentiums" (jury is out regarding whether the 'Benjamins' are still a relevant unit of currency). The answer depends very heavily on the exact specs of each system, but I would expect you to notice better performance out of the laptops for a few reasons: The Core i series all ...

I was having a similiar issue with 10.10.3 which was not corrected when I updated to 10.10.4. Many, many things were tried before I got it to stay connected to WiFi reliably, however deleting the networking PLIST files seems to be what finally did it. The Fix: Disable WiFi Open Finder Press Cmd+Shft+G to go to the folder ...

Well, i guess you solved your problem by now, but I still wanted to answer, since I recently looked into eGPU options myself. If your sole aim is to run a 4K monitor (and your GPU doesn't support it), you could probably also get a USB graphics adapter. You find a selection here. This certainly is a much cheaper option, but probably too slow to watch ...

On the white remote, you must first press and hold the Menu and Previous/Rewind buttons for 6 seconds. This will clear out any old paired remote. Then, press and hold the Menu and Next/Fast-forward buttons for 6 seconds. This will pair with your remote. (Source: Apple support page)
