QuickSilver 2002 owners... problems?

Posted:
in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
On the Apple Support Discussion Boards there is a thread I found that describes my problem. Occasionally, the image on my monitor will glitch/flash. It seems to occur at random, but very rarely. I can't reproduce it or anything. It's probably a bug with the GeForce4 MX. I hope it's fixable with a firmware patch or something.



Also, is there any way to read the temperature of the MPC745x/744x CPUs? I seem to remember Motorola designating the broken temp sensor an erratum they wouldn't fix...

    Yes, error no. 25 in the <a href="http://e-www.motorola.com/brdata/PDFDB/docs/MPC7450CE.pdf"; target="_blank">PPC7450 series errata document</a> on their website. According to them, it won't be fixed in future generations of the 7450 series, but I'm not sure this includes the 7455 as well (especially since the <a href="http://e-www.motorola.com/brdata/PDFDB/docs/MPC7455CE.pdf"; target="_blank">PPC7455 series errata document</a> currently only contains 2 errors, none of which are related to the TAU).



    Bye,

    Is the temp sensor builtin to the cpu? Or is it an external device?

    My Powerbook 550 does the same thing. Dual GHz should be here by tomorrow, I will let you know if it does the same thing.

    I have the same thing on my dual 1 gig, the screen glitch. I don't see it as a big issue though.

    I just got my Dual 1G today. Neither 17" Apple Studio display that is on it has any shake. I'll keep watching for it.

    Eugene! Where's the dirt man? Where are the pictures of your new dual 1GHz G4 heatsink flirting with your lanky fingers?



    We need a more...umm...hardware savvy person than KidRed to expose us to the naked truth of what's under the hood!

    The new G4s are unremarkably changed from their predecessors, but if you want pics of the heatsink, I did take some photos:
