Faint white spots on macbook pro lcd screen

Dear experts,
I own a macbook pro 1.83 GHz Intel (one of the first releases - year 2006) and I recently noticed some brighter spots located at various positions in the LCD screen. They look like faint fingerprints, but I cleaned the screen several times, and it seems they are due to some LCD defect? The macbook pro is too old for the warranty... Is there a way to get rid of the spots?
Thank you!! Rob

If the spots remain in the same place I'm sorry to say no. Be careful what you clean the screen with. I'm a fan of a warm wet damp only rag. Using alcohol or other cleaners may damage the surface. There are also cleaners available at local stores. You don't need anti-static on an LCD display. The spots can be from pressure on the display applied at some point even if that pressure happens when closing or transpoting your laptop.There is no way to fix it.

Black spot in my screen.


Unfortunately not. this is either caused by internal damage to the lcd or it could be caused by a light leak in the lcd. It needs to be taken to the Apple store if you still have the one year warranty or if you purchased an extended apple care plan. If not you can contact a local independent repair person.

Try a firmware update. Plug in the power, remove the battery and startup the Mac but hold the power button down until you get a loud BEEEP and the lights flash repeatedly, and let it do it's thing. That will reset the motherboard.
If that doesn't do it, it's hardware (screen, Cable or Motherboard) and better for Apple to sort it out (Usually for free)

Can i place a 4g and 2g stick in my macbook pro


Hello! The MacBook Pro you have mentioned can only support 4GB's total. 2GB's in the first slot, and 2GB's on the second slot.

What you may have seen by accident was that you can purchase either a 4GB kit, or a 2GB kit. Meaning a 4GB kit with 2 2GB sticks, or a 2GB kit with 2 1GB sticks.

Your best bet is to go with a 2GB stick in each slot to max out your MacBook Pro. 2GB's is the largest each slot can read.

For more information, check out the website below which has very detailed information on memory for various systems.

Macbook extra fan


The real issue seems to be that the system firmware designers haveoptimized for a quiet machine at the expense of the temperature. Theeasiest way to fix this? A firmware update,perhaps not unlike the one released recently with almost no details.Several reports from users indicated this update increased the use oftheir fans and fixed their heat issues. Isn't that an astonishingcoincedence?

Although Apple said that the update was to "System Management Control(SMC)" firmware, it was up to MacBook Pro (MBP) users to figure outthat SMC is the specialized controller that manages thermal and power conditions, and is in charge of running the portable's fans.
Within hours of the update, users began reporting that the updateseemed to increase the MacBook Pro's use of its fans, and usingdiagnostic tools, claimed that their machines were running up to eightdegrees cooler.

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro


Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.
