I used chewing gum to get the metal pieces out. That was the only resource I had at hand at the time, and it worked like magic!

It may have to do with your iMessage configuration. Open Messages and press cmd+, or go to Messages > Preferences to check if your Apple ID is the same on your iPhone and Mac, and below that, check the section titled: "You can be reached for messages at:" and confirm that your phone number appears and it's checked; this allows your Mac to receive ...

I'd try booting off of another hard drive with OS X on it and then using Disk Utility to try to repair the drive and/or its Disk Permissions. Maybe one of your friends has something you can barrow to use to boot your Mac off of (even an old OS X Lion USB stick).

On your iPhone, go into Settings->Messages->Text Message Forwarding and switch the switch by your Mac off. Once off, switch it back on and then authenticate it on your Mac.

It may be as simple as the cable has become loose. If that is the case, it is a fairly easy fix. Sorry to see you don’t have a backup. If the drive has gone bad, that would have been your recourse. For future reference, a simple external drive connected via USB will work fine as a Time Machine backup disk. Even if you are not as regular in connecting it ...

You may have checked to see that this question has already been asked. So as not not add to the endless recursing of the internet, the answer to the question points here. This is an older post and relates to OS X 7 and 8, though there are several comments with patches/updates for newer OS versions and hardware revisions (this started with Apple's move to ...

All SATA SSDs will work with your MacBook. There is actually no such thing as an SSD only suitable for Mac however a few companies do advertise like this. So basically any SATA SSD from any brand and with any capacity will work with your MacBook, just make sure that it is a 2.5" internal SSD :) Before you do actually change to a SSD I recommend you ...

Resetting the MacBooks power controller solved this for me: To reset the SMC: 1: Shut down the computer. 2: Plug in the MagSafe or USB-C power adapter to a power source and to your computer. 3: On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time. 4: Release all the keys and the power button at ...

The next time you have an issue, run sysdiagnose by pressing the key chord for it or manually from terminal and then open a support ticket with Apple.

Microsoft tried to focus on backwards compatibility with Windows 10, supposedly retaining support for drivers designed for Vista. I've been running Windows 10 on a newer Mac and it works fine. I'm sure you'll have no issues.

It could be just that the Yosemite is not recognizing your Airport card -WiFi function due to the bad setup. Just to confirm, the Ethernet and Bluetooth are working.

Your Macbook 2010 will be fine if you buy 2x8gb of 1066mHz DDR3. You will dual boot without issues. Correct ram speed is important, see my answer to a similar question here about possible issues with faster ram. You will need Philips #00 screw to upgrade your memory. There is also a great guide at iFixit.

Safe Mode working means that it is likely that something you installed is preventing the OS from booting. Specifically programs you have added to start at login in your user account or other things you may have installed that adds kexts to the system.

Sounds like it might be a bad Airport card, if you have the tools, open it up and then disconnect and reconnect the antennas connecting to the card. If that doesn't work, remove the card, clean the contacts on the card and then reinstall it. If that doesn't work, you'll need to buy a new card, specific for your model of MacBook Air.

If your Mac Kernel Panics every time you reboot, well that is a problem. Can you boot into safe mode? Hold the shift key while booting and release when you see the Apple logo on screen. The boot process may take longer than it usually does. Could be a LOT longer. If that works then there is something you installed that runs at startup that is causing the ...

This Apple Support document details what you need to remove and replace the RAM. Using the wrong spec RAM can cause serious problems. The specs for the RAM are very specific: 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM Apple spec is for max of 4GB RAM, but it use 16GB with Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later and the latest EFI firmware update.

It is possible to do but install at your own risk until Apple issues an update for Boot Camp. Assuming you have the Windows 10 ISO run the bootcamp and follow the standard procedure. Make sure you allocated minimum 20 GB, 30 or more is better. It might take over a hour to complete.

Sorry, the MacBook Air processor is soldered on and removing it would likely destroy the logic board. If you're looking for a powerful, yet relatively cheap laptop, get a used few-year-old MacBook Pro on eBay for a few hundred dollars (nothing too old, 2011 probably at the latest).

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 ...

Once you change the fan settings in SMC, you then need to close the software and re-open it before the changes take effect. Not sure why it does this, but it works for me.

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 ...

Keyboard, Trackpad, Battery and Topcase is one module, so is the display. So probably driple-digit, close to four-digit. Selling yours and buying a new one would probably even be cheaper.

Nothing you can do without replacing the entire aluminum case, which probably isn't worth the trouble. Since it's cosmetic damage, Apple's warranty won't cover it. Maybe if you found a really skilled machinist, they could make it look better. But it would probably mess up the labels on the ports, so not worth it.

Most likely you got a bad replacement display. It could be the cable, connector or another part. It could also be the GPU, or associated video hardware. But I would bet on the replacement screen being the culprit.

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 ...

I doubt that the Mac would get so hot internally that the metal would warp before the Mac shut itself down. There are thermal sensors throughout the unit designed to keep it from thermal overload. Did this actually happen to you? How is it warped?

The Toolbar on the Preview App is handy for basic editing, but more detailed work would require a proper photo editing application. The Photos app provides some basic editing such as color correction and rotation. However it does not (correct me if I am wrong) allow for working Alpha channels or layers. There are several third party apps available on the ...

So basically I hear three things in your Question. You want the speed and performance of the Air's SSD drive. You want to want to leverage the processing performance of the iMac. You want to access those files away from the office on your Air. You should be able to setup a connection using a Thunderbolt Bridge under your Network settings. What follows ...

Let me guess: the issue appeared with the 10.10.3 update? Well, then I am 98% certain it is a bug in OS X Yosemite. Your issue is related with this one. Users report erratic kernel panics and some users have graphics glitches like you. The only common feature is having a Intel HD 4000 GPU. On MacBook Pros with dual GPU you can avoid the problem by ...

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)
