  • The 4870 that shipped with Macs only ever had 512MiB of memory (so says MacTracker). This probaly means that you have a flashed PC card. You can't depend on that working, and you are now seeing why. You might want to mention important details like t…
  • Your question is really, realy vauge. It is a good bet that with GPUs pushishing twords ever more flexible processors, and CPUs pushing more and more cores that the two will meet (if however briefly) at some point. The Larabee/Knights Bridge/Knights…
  • There is no "F-8" thing, but there is "Target Disk Mode" (hold down the T key while booting). And from there it is easy to use Disk Utility to copy the volume over. But there is not going to be any way of having the drive booted without it having fu…
  • Why would you want two 19" displays rather then one 27" display? To put numbers to this: Two 19" monitors probably display each have a resolution of 1280x1024 or 1440x900, so: 1280 * 1024 * 2 (monitors) = 2,621,440 pixels or 1440 * 900 * 2 =…

  • The problem is that when you choose to boot Windows (unlike choosing MacOS volumes) you are not really choosing what volume you want to boot, but rather choosing the "legacy" (read: BIOS) method of booting. That in turn reads from a boot sector on t…

  • The iPad will charge from anything that provides power over a USB connection per the specs. However, the iPad likes to negotiate an out-of-spec power draw, which it can from certain Macs, or the charger it comes with. With those devices it can both …
  • If the problem is based in the Application files, or in preferences, then the answer is clearly: "yes, the migration assistant might well bring the problem along". If it is a problem in the OS or hardware, then it is no likely to bring it along.
  • With 20 networks in your area there are probably too many base stations all competing for the same wireless frequencies. You can try shifting what channel yours is working on, but that is only going to do any good if everyone else happens to be tune…

  • That has been out for some time: http://www.axiotron.com/index.php?id=modbookpro Not multitouch, but you can get this today.
  • The issue as described is the WindowServer crashing. And since all of the applications you are likely to think about have mach-port connections to the WindowServer if it crashes they are all doomed. The bright blue background is the default behind t…
  • If they are encrypted, or using some obscure corner of PDF (Adobe loves tossing new things in the spec just for fun) then it might be that the built-in reader will not handle it. I ran into a case where Preview.app (on the Mac) could not open the PD…
  • Unfortunately with 10.6 Apple no longer puts in the "Erase and Install" option. I don't know why, but you can still do this yourself by: 1) Boot from the restore disk 2) Choose your language when asked 3) At the next screen go into the menu…
  • It really sounds as if you have a scratched or otherwise bad DVD. Apple will replace them for a small fee. Alternately you have some bad memory that only MacOS X is running afoul of. Apple tends to demand memory to work closer to spec than others do…
  • Intel has not put USB3 on their chipsets yet, and don't expect to for a while. The rumor that things were going to get USB3 was just silly.
