Free download Stellar Partition Manager V3.0 and make a bootable usb with which you can boot your Mac and resize Boot Camp partition with the available free spaces. This software works on HFS, NTFS, FAT and EXFAT drives. Except EXFAT it resizes all other file systems.

is it a wifi mac? I suggest that you unplug the power cable behind your router and leave it unplugged for at least 15 mins. then plug it back and try to reconnect. If it does not work delete your router connection from the wifi list. switch off your wifi on the mac, switch it back on and it should sort out it self.

That Mac has a hdmi port and a mini display port. The monitor has a saga port. So ether a hdmi-svga. Or miniDisplay port-svga.

Any usb keyboard will work. So any Mac keyboard newer than 12 years should be good, and newer pic keyboards will work. Beware of older keyboards that have round plugs. On macs these were ADB ports. On PC's, they used PS2 (ADB, ps2, usb are all different, you want the flat rectangle USB)

U.S. pc keyboards also have two modifier keys wired different than the U.S. Mac keyboards, but this can be adjusted in the system preferences. Can't say for non U.S. KBs. They are the windows/alt keys. Vs Opt/Command keys. That is, if you are soused to using a Mac, the key that is closest to the spacebar (command key) is applied by the second key over rather than the first. Again, this can be modified in the Sys Prefs.

Europe has different power supply parameters than the USA, Obviously you discovered the voltage difference, hence the transformer, but the USA sends AC voltage at 60 cycles per second while most of Europe is at 50 cycles. You need a converter, not a transformer, if your monitor is capable, you may be able to set it to operate on the different frequency from display settings, or the monitors internal menu

I might likely be able to help you but need a few 'back & forth' questions answered to do so. Some questions 'seemingly simple' but I don't know your level of knowledge so forgive me in advance:

- What is your operating system? (go to the apple , upper far left to first drop down - "About this mac")

- What browser are you using?

- What are you downloading that made you write? Is it everything you download that you have this issue with?

If you write back, I expect to be here to follow through & help you to find some answers.

That depends on what operating system you have. If it's 10.6.8 or older, you need the operating system install discs that came with your computer. Just put it in and restart the computer. When you here the start up chime, press and hold the C key to boot from disc. Then in the utilities bar on the top, select disk utility and then the top left hard drive icon in the side bar do the disk utility application. Go to the erase option on the right portion of the screen and make sure the erase option says MAC OS JOURNALED and click erase. That wil remove all data off of the hard drive including the operating system. After that is done, you can reinstall the OS with the disks.

if your OS is newer than 10.6.8, hold option after the apple start up chime, this will let you select bootable drives that the computer detects, there should be a recovery partion, select that and repeat the steps in disk utility I mentioned above.

This page has all the info and links to the specs for various mac minis and cpu upgrades. However, after the "early 2009" and subsequent models, the cpu is soldered and you would need an OEM cpu. Is it possible to upgrade the processor in the Intel Mac mini EveryMac...

Let's try this:

1. Click on the Apple logo on the top left corner
2. Choose System Preferences...
3. Click on Trackpad
4. Select Scroll & Zoom
5. Make the selection the way you like it

Let me know if this fixes your problem or we need to look for another solution.

I get this too. (Love using the solid blue background)

1. Check if there are any other users logged in on the Mac.
2. Log off all the users including yourself
3. Log in only on your user account and change the background

If that doesn't work, restart first and repeat.

If even that doesn't work, change to another solid background first and then change it back to the picture.
