SOURCE: imac problem starting up

Reinstall Mac Os X, this should fix the problem.

Do a backup of all your files before reinstalling the OS.

If you do not know how to reinstall Mac OS get it safely done at any Mac shop, it is not an expensive operation.

SOURCE: Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.

the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.

try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

good luck

SOURCE: erase and reformat to be compatible with new mac

Think I might have solved it myself. Here's how:

Open Disk Utilities and select the external hard drive. Select the "Erase" tab. Hit "Erase" at the bottom right.

That's all. Just dragged a folder onto it and it worked.

  • Verify that the power outlet you're using is good and your power cable is firmly connected to the wall outlet-if using a surge protector, be sure that it's firmly plugged into the wall outlet. Also, try temporarily plugging directly into the wall outlet to eliminate any issue with the surge protector; plug a different electronic device into the same wall socket to make sure the socket works, and also try the iMac's power cable in a different wall outlet.
  • Make sure the computer's power cable is firmly connected to the computer.
  • If any external devices are connected to your iMac, disconnect them and try to turn the computer on again. If the iMac will power up when those devices are removed, but not when they are connected, contact the manufacturer of those devices for assistance.
  • Try resetting the iMac's SMC
  • Remove and reinstall the SO-DIMM memory modules, located in the bottom of the computer.
  • Resetting the SMC for Mac Pro, Intel-based iMac, Intel-based Mac mini, or Intel-based Xserve

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the computer's power cord.
    3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    4. Release the power button.
    5. Attach the computers power cable.
    6. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Will Virtual PC for mac v7 work with an new iMac (Mac OS X, Version 10.5.7)?


Basically, if your new iMac has the new Intel processor (or any Intel based processor Macs) your Virtual PC v7 will not work on it. It is designed for iMacs/Macs that are not Intel Based machines (that run on the Motorola processors like the G3, G4 lines, etc).
All Intel based iMacs/Macs are capable of running Windows using a Dual boot startup that is available at the Mac Store or online. Check the Apple website for instructions, they are always updating the software. :)

Spitting DVDs out?


Every company has quality control issues, Remember apple only has less than 10 percent of the market and they are exploding due to the IPOD and ITUNES so they are scrambling to keep up. Of course that not our problem its thiers but they are trying. Just for reference I have a Mac Plus in my garage which can still get on the internet. Quality has been there staple and if they didnt out source so much to keep up with demand I am sure those things wouldnt happen nearly as much.

Intel High Definition Audio:Device ID: 0x106B00A0


Sound is controlled in the Systems Preferences. Go to the Apple icon (top left on top menu bar), then Systems Preferences > Sound. Check the Input Output configurations, making sure that mute is off and volume is on appropriately. I would think the "Built In" choices would be appropriate. I hope this helps.
