comment USB intermittently not working - requires restart - what to try next?
Also, my reinstall option isn't an erase and install. Just an installation over the existing files.

Daniel, While I agree with you, asking someone who's skills within the Unix environment are unknown, to mess around in terminal often times does more negative than positive. There was nothing in his original post to show that he had that skillset, which is why I err on the side of caution in my response.

comment Does Find My Mac stop working after the system has been wiped?
Also, voting down my answer simply because its possible there is a firmware password, or FileVault on the computer is ridiculous. If these items were enabled on the OP computer, they wouldnt be concerned with this question. Use a little logic.

Gerry, if the OS is wiped, and there is no sign in or association to iCloud, then YES it is true. This was the question asked.

OS installer. The fact that it comes BACK leads to the potential for software. try that FIRST, then look at hardware

All this really will do is show the user the same thing he sees in the way the hardware performs. This is not needed. Adhere to the KISS philosophy. It's Apple's mindset, and should be the users. (kiss = keep it simple stupid)

so by UI Dialog you mean you are clicking on the attachment icon.....?? Or are you actually using a jQuery call for it.

How are you sending the file? Simple attachment, drag and drop type, or from within preview or another pdf reader?

comment Can a Mac boot when the right shift key is broken in the pressed position?
Shift is special in that it forces the machine to boot into safe mode.
