I'm having this same problem. Would love to hear an answer as well.

I had the exact same problem with a Dell monitor. After months of support calls and monitor replacements, it ended up being the cable. The problem was using a Mini-DP to DP cable. For some reason, the DP chips in the cable is not sending a signal that Dell monitors are expecting or the length of the cable causes the signal to degrade. The fix? Buy a ...

iPhoto was built with this sort of flexibility in mind: it is possible and in fact iPhoto makes it quite easy. Find your iPhoto library. You'll most likely find it in your Pictures folder. If it's not there, open iPhoto while holding the option key, and you should get a window similar to the one below. The path to your library is displayed under the ...

I had the same issue with Windows 7 guest on a MBP 2013 retina display. It was solved for me by unticking the "Automatically adjust user interface size in Windows" checkbox.

Maybe the excerpt below can explain. The full article can be found on OS X Daily, Is Your Mac Slow to Wake from Sleep? Try this pmset Workaround: If your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air feels slow to wake from sleep after it’s been sleeping for a while, there may be a fairly simple cause: standby mode. Standby mode allows a Mac to potentially have up to 30 ...

I've just bought a 4k Acer CB280 to pair with my rMBP Mid-2012. I can achieve any resolution at 30hz fine, forcing 60hz results in text looking distorted as if the Macbook hasn't turned on its retina settings. The only resolution I seem to be able to have 60hz and full crystal clear looking text & imagery is 720p :S (The monitor supports 60hz - I know ...

Based on the information you gave I can't really guess why, but your Windows install failed. I would suggest you try again, making sure you carefully follow the instructions in Apple's Boot Camp manual step by step. Be sure to back up your data before doing so.

Aside of using the Target Disk mode, which is sort of rough way, you can use the build in Migration Assistant already located in your Utility folder. It is designed to transfer information from- to but also to place it in the right position, unlike the Target disk mode.

Fastest is probably Target Disk Mode. With the 'donor' machine off, connect both with Firewire or Thunderbolt cables. Boot the 'donor' & hold the T key. You can then treat it like an external hard drive & copy files from one to the other See - Transfer files between two computers using target disk mode - same method for any OS

This seems clearly GPU issue. Previously all 2011 model MBPs had the same issue and same symptoms. I am a victim myself. Take it to the authorized service center immediately. If you are out of warranty then it may be expensive to replace the logic board. I have sworn that I will not buy another Apple Mwith dual graphics.

I have never seen the entire cord for sale, though I suspect they might sell them as replacement parts. You should check with your Apple store or call them. I assume you know about the travel kit, which replaces the shorter, plug only option for the Mac power adapter (without the cord): ...

I am using a 13-inch mid 2014 MacBook Pro with Retina Display. It is about 3 weeks old and already has clocked 13 charge cycles. Is this too high? A charge cycle is just the process of using and then recharging the full capacity of the battery one time. From Apple: A charge cycle means using all of the battery’s power, but that doesn’t ...

I found that by unchecking the box 'enable this account' under my apple ID account and then rechecking it, the messages app registered my phone number as an option for sending and receiving.

Your DuetDisplay is not supported by 10.10 com.karios.driver.DuetDisplay 1 Does it support 10.10.2 beta? Not at this time. The OS X build itself is very unstable and is causing issues with duet. We are in touch with Apple and asking them to fix the issues so that duet works optimally. Also not sure your update for ScreenFlow5 app is working. ...

Just to keep this thread up to date, it's no longer necessary to kill the Finder to show/hide dot files. This Applescript will do it by refreshing all window contents instead; it's also faster than relaunching the Finder. set newHiddenVisiblesState to "YES" try set oldHiddenVisiblesState to do shell script "defaults read com.apple.finder ...

There's a way to hide all "dot" files from Desktop with 3rd party app called XtraFinder. Go to Settings -> Features tab -> Hide dot files on Desktop Though I still didn't manage to hide all .DS_Store files and keep all other dot files visible, this is a pleasant improvement.

I have the same machine and the fans do run when trying to display 4k... it's a pain but it appears that whenever the dedicated graphics card comes online it immediately tries to cool the machine... I'm also running OSX Yosemite if that helps.

I think your hunch is correct. You seem to have run into a problem with App Nap. To save energy, a background task with no visible UI gets throttled down and eventually stopped. Each time you bring the dialog to the front, it has a "visible UI" and gets a new lease on life. Depending on which app is doing the copying, you might be able to disable App Nap ...

Safari actually uses less energy than crime or Firefox but it honestly depends on the website open and number of tabs

HDMI did not work for me but the Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI converter cable adapter worked perfectly! with a HP Pavilion 25bw

In my opinion, I'd get the newest Mac, especially if you get a warranty with it. The newer the computer, the more OS X updates it can handle. As far as graphics go, I'd go with the one that has better specs. If you do end up buying a new one, upgrade the RAM, and if you plan on working with video editing software, definitely get the i7 processor instead of ...

I have a MackBook Pro A1425 and have scoured the internet looking for answers. To date I have not found such an adapter (AAARRRRrrrrrrggggg!!!). However Transcend makes a 64 and 128GB expansion card that goes in the SDXC card slot for additional storage instead of replacing your current hard drive for $37 and $75 on Amazon Transcend JetDrive Lite 330 64GB ...

Three passes is akin to slamming on your brakes and screeching to a halt in your car. Your tires will be fine but you've just left a few hundred miles of rubber on the road. Chances are you hit the brakes for a good reason though so it was worth it. You won't damage the SSD. Yosemite's 3 pass includes 2 passes of randomized data, which is very much like ...

It is possible your Power Management got messed up Reset the SMC following this instructions:. That should fix the problem, unless your battery is fried.

I believe Apple's position is a standard erase is good enough on SSD. In the article on secure erasing, they recommend enabling FileVault before you ever introduce any sensitive data to the drive so that you can just throw away the encryption key and not need any passes of erase to be secure. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201949 That being said, in ...

According to Rhys Oxenhams: the kernel will keep looping some very simple tasks, e.g. getting the date, therefore ‘consuming’ (with the highest priority) the majority of the CPU in a bid to cool the system down. The solution he mentions on his blog should work for earlier Macs. For Ivy-Bridge Macs and a little earlier Richard Schwarting has found ...

While this might not provide a direct answer to your question, I would be interested in the EDID (Extended display identification data) of that display. Run ioreg -l | grep EDID on terminal to get all the EDIDs listed. Your output then includes one line for each display connected, such as "IODisplayEDID" =<00ffffffffffff000...>. Take the part in ...

Based on your specifications I am guessing that you are using a MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I have heard about glitches with ones that have a dedicated GPU because OS X actually used both the integrated and the dedicated side by side. To fix this problem you are probably going to want to reset your SMC (System Management Controller) which controls these ...

The issue appears to have been corrupted non-volatile random-access memory — NVRAM (called Paramter RAM — PRAM on older Macs) as I reset the memory and after doing that, the problem went away. On Intel-based Macs, the way to reset NVRAM is the same as resetting PRAM on older machines (as explained by Apple support): Shut down your Mac. Locate the ...
