Yah this is one of those errors that likely mean a hardware failure and generally speaking the only way you are repairing a failure like this (unless you are into completely disassembling your Mac) is via an Apple Store or an AASP (Apple Authorized Service Provider). Failing all the suggestions above you may need to (first: make a backup) make a Genius Bar ...

As far as I understand, if it's not in your purchased items list, you'll need to download the installer from an alternate source. Get it from the friend, or a trustworthy online source. Apple might put it up for sale eventually (or for free) like they've done with Mountain Lion, Lion, and Snow Leopard. You can still buy those from store.apple.com

I had the same problem, and Andrew was right, but I was using Apple Magic Mouse. So, I tried to switch off the bluetooth that my mouse was connected to, then using the trackpad, I could resize the column in Finder. I turned back on the bluetooth and the problem of resizing the columns has gone. I have to make a remark that my magic mouse was also low on ...

You can set it via the command line: osascript -e "set volume input volume 100" I have found that OSX Polycom RealPresence Desktop has a similar annoying "feature" that adjusts the mic input volume down, but never back up. My workaround is to have this line in my crontab: # Check every minute for mic input < 100%; if it is, dial it up elegantly * * * ...

If you have installed any RAM on the machine, try removing it and using only the original Apple RAM modules. This has resolved better than 9 in 10 of the kernel panics I've had on Intel machines. If it does, get replacement RAM modules from your vendor.

Click "Open Display Preferences" in the AirPlay menu (as shown above). Set the resolution on your TV to 1080p. The key, at least in my case, and I suspect in yours, is to click "overscan correction", which will get that last 1~5% black border to go away.

Click "Duplicated Songs" and you will ...

I had the same problem with some older versions of Chrome. They had a setting like "Allow background processes to run even when Chrome is closed". Every time Chrome updated to a new version I had to go to settings and uncheck this option, otherwise my MBP won't get to sleep by himself. But this settings is not there any more since some versions of Chrome ...

I resolved this problem. If anyone else runs into it in the future just go to chrome settings and then go to advanced settings and reset settings. It just brought me to default. Something in my settings was causing it. Honestly have no idea what it was.

In my experience for Mountain Lion, determining which display is the primary display is usually achieved by dragging the white Menu Bar (circled in screenshot below) onto the graphic of another display, thus setting the other display as the primary monitor.

The message "WebRTC has active PeerConnections" could be a product of your Chrome settings. Paste this "chrome://flags/" in your Chrome web address bar. Find and disable the WebRTC.

Here's a cool one that I use in a ruby script on OS X (so that I can start a script and get an update even after toggling away from the window): cmd = %Q|osascript -e 'display notification "Server was reset" with title "Posted Update"'| system ( cmd )

The steps above work, with caveats: The actual path for the required Prefs folder in 10.9 is /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ Mavericks adds a dock icon for iBooks and the Downloads folder as part of the user creation script, so these are added even if you have removed them from your custom dock. If you already have a ...

All highly suspect. Opaque binaries early in boot and thin explanations if you would even consider them explanations. Something's up.

The system is clearly designed to take great pains to not lose your data, however whenever you rewrite the core part of the OS that is responsible for booting the system, that is the time when you are most likely to discover a problem: Your hard drive or hardware could be flakey and the volume of changes exposes a pre-existing problem that was un-noticed ...

You won't loose anything that isn't part of the system. AFAIK, what worked on Mountain Lion/Mavericks is most likely to work on Yosemite. If you have some critical software you need, you might want to check for some feedback from other users who have done the upgrade. For a packet-management tools there is Homebrew or Macports.

On Mavericks, you can go to System Preferences -> Mission Control and check "Displays have separate spaces." This will accomplish what you want to do.

Press the power button to turn on your computer.
