2 cpu's one keyboard (adb)

Hello My question: I have two old macs and I would like to use my adb keyboard for both computers. I thought to buy an adb adapter (female/female), connect the keyboard (male) to one extreme, connect the switch cable to the other extreme and connect two adb cables (port A, port C) to the switch, one for each computer. Is this OK or are there some electrical considerations that I sould be aware of? I really appreciate your help, TIA, R

Yes and no. The good thing is this will work the bad thing is the possible droping of the driver connection which rarely happens, but it is a possibility. Also if the cables use mechanical switching there are galvanic issues that may occur (and opto-isolated switch is better). However this will work. This the basic functionality of the KVM switch.

I bought an old Mac Mini Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB Hard Drive, OS X Yosemite, with serial # C07CS2TPDD6H. What adapter cord could I use to connect it to an iBox C1752, TFT LCD Monitor?


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.

Can i install windows on an old old mac laptop


The Macs that you can install windows on need to have an Intel processor. Usually old old macs as you said are using PowerPC CPU.
To check the list of Mac computers that support installing windows (BootCamp) , you can check this list:

As for the part where the Mac won't start up. This depends on it's a hardware or software issue.

Enter Recovery Mode on Locked Android devices
  1. In order to succeed with these steps, you will need access to a computer or notebook.
  2. Your handset and its USB cable should also be there.
  3. Your phone must have USB debugging option enabled.
  4. On your computer Android SKD must be installed -> learn how to install Android SDK on Windows or learn how to set up ADB on MAC OS X / Linux.
  5. Connect your device with the computer by using its USB cable.
  6. On your computer navigate through the Fastboot folder.
  7. There open a command prompt window.

I don't have intel CPU on my mac/ How do I install that?


The solution is not a download as it all has to do with the type of mac you have. Newer macs have an intel chip on them, yours must have a powerpc chip.The only way to get an intel mac is unfortunately to buy a newer mac.

Older ArtZ II with ADB cable won't talk to my laptop


I'm thinking this is a Mac-only tablet. The ArtZ II for Windows came with an rs232 (old mouse) port at the end of the cable, in addition to a built-in spot where the power plug attaches.You didn't mention the power plug on yours, so the Mac version of the tablet must have the power routed in through the cable.

Short answer, the reason the light isn't coming on is because the tablet isn't receiving power. If you go get a cross-platform adapter card for plugging in Mac hardware on your HP, it *might* work.
