macsales.com aka OWC is a fantastic website for buying RAM. I purchased 16 gb for my late 2011 model with no problems. Order the RAM amount that you want, then when the ram arrives you must unscrew the back cover of your macbook and find the RAM to remove, which you will then replace with the RAM you bought. I highly suggest watching a YouTube video on the ...

Mavericks has a sophisticated RAM management software. The good old days where you did the job of trying to keep as much RAM free as you could are obsoleted. Someone had the good idea of what is the purpose of RAM that is not used. So use it all or as much as you can and manage the dynamics so it does not overun to Swap. What it means it will continuously ...

the cl of the sport is not 9 but 10. To work the voltage is crucial, the 1,5 volt will give problems, the 1,35 volt will mostly work fine

I would run Verify Disk in the Disk First Aid tab in Disk Utility (Usually kept in Applications > Utilities). If there are any problems you will have to repair your disk which will require restarting while holding down the option key and booting from your recovery partition, or if you have an older computer, from the system install disk.

You can try one out of two.. first, try with a different browser... Safari isnt the only way out and Seconed, I agree with @Mark Anderson double check with the excel version.. Have you installed all the updates apple requires on the app store after upgrading to mavericks? I have a macbook air with a 4gb RAM & works fine with mavericks, ...

I would be more concerned with Excel and the version of Microsoft Office you're running. Ensure you have the latest version of Office 2011, currently at least 14.3.9 (English version) to be compatible with Mavericks. Also, depending on what you are copying/pasting, you can try "Paste Special..." in Excel and select "Text" so you only get clean text and not ...

If you're referring to the Kingston RAM module in the picture then no, it won't fit a Mac Mini, this RAM module in the picture is too long, the Mac Mini requires 204 pin module, what you have in the picture has too many pins. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5475 2012 model: PC3-12800 DDR3 Unbuffered Non-parity 204-pin module 1600 MHz

You didn't actually specify the model of your Mac Mini, but by going off the data from here, I think you have the mid 2011 model (Mac Mini 5,1). If that is correct, then Apple's technical specifications on this model confirm that the Mac Mini uses 1,333 MHz DDR3, up to 8 GB (4 GB x 2). HOWEVER, that memory that you linked to is "DESKTOP" MEMORY, a DIMM ...

Look at it in another way: You don't have 8 desktops but you just have 1 desktop. The applications are bundled into groups and only certain groups of applications are shown on your desktop screen. When another application becomes active from another group, then the selected group will become active on your desktop. It feels like your have 8 desktops but in ...

Having various applications open (on the same or on different desktops/spaces) requires much more memory than the desktops/spaces themselves. Even with different background pictures on every desktop the memory impact will be low compared to whatever else is going on on your machine.

Dont worry about the inactive part, this doesnt mean that your mac will run slow, macintosh keeps these inactive(as IDLE) where when programs needed*-(the ones that you've been using)-* then accessing them would be faster since they are still in a way or another in memory regardless of swapping being in process. And if your scared of the ...

First of all, if you have a program that that's 32 bit it will run fine in 64bit with out compatibility mode. The only time you really need compatibility mode is when you have vista drivers and want to run them on win 7, you would use compatibility mode. This also doesn't apply to mac only windows computers they for some reason need the exact drivers. I also ...
