Almost all computer and hardware manufacturers include a group of drivers for different hardware devices and often for each of the supported versions of Windows. For example, this driver CD you receive with your printer likely contains the drivers for dozens of different printers and not just the printer you purchased. When installing the drivers, make sure you are installing the drivers for your printer and not another printer model. Also, make sure you are installing it for the version of Windows you are running on your computer. http://essaysorigin.com/

The drivers are included in Leopard.

If the display is not working please ensure the video card you are using is compatible with the 30" display.

I am using an Apple 30inch Cinema Display with a MacPro Desktop. Occasionally, Lines would appear on the screen and I would have to restart my computer, but not the screen, upon start-up, has a number of...


This sounds like a video card issue with the Mac Pro, have you tried testing the display with a different computer?
Next, check for any software/firmware updates from Apple and install if necessary.
Next, I suggest resetting the SMC to flush out any legacy niggles, this can be accomplished by following these instructions as provided by Apple.
To reset the SMC on a Mac Pro:
  1. From the Apple menu, choose Shut Down (or if the computer is not responding, hold the power button until it turns off).
  2. Unplug all cables from the computer, including the power cord and any display cables.
  3. Wait at least fifteen seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back in, making sure the power button is not being pressed at the time. Then reconnect your keyboard and mouse to the computer.
  5. Press the power button to start up your computer.
Another way to reset the SMC on a Mac Pro computer is:
  1. From the Apple menu, choose Shut Down (or if the computer is not responding, hold the power button until it turns off).
  2. Open and remove the metallic outer door.
  3. Press the SMC_RST switch that is located slightly below and to the right of the row of diagnostic LEDs. Use a non-metallic, non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil. Note: Mac Pro (Early 2008) does not have an SMC_RST switch, refer to the reset procedure steps in the previous section.
  4. Replace the metallic outer door.
  5. Press the power button to start up your computer.
If the problem persists and you have identified that the problem is definitely with the display then any further information you can provide would be most helpful in diagnosing the problem - otherwise, if it is the video card then (assuming it's still warrantied) get in touch with Apple. If out of warranty then I'm sure we can guide you through the replacement process if needed!

Can't load spectra II on my new mac pro

22" Apple Cinema Display doesn't power on


This may be an issue with the display detecting the wrong video format or is using an unsupported resolution for this Apple Cinema Display 22"

Procedure:
• Make sure your Mac is turned off.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the start up sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Mac to start up.

If that does not help here is additional support reference from Apple regarding its LCD displays:

Let me know if this helps!

The screen is half blue


You many need to reseat the Apple DVI to ADC Adapter that is connecting your Apple Cinema HD 23" to your Mac.

If that adapter is not properly seated, it can cause a color distortion with the display. Also, if the adapter is damaged, that can also impact proper resolution and color balance.

To try and resolve this issue for you, I have a procedure I would like you to try:

----------------------------------------------------------------
-SAFE BOOT MODE-

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't isolate what may be affecting your display's resolution.

Try these steps:

• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain startup items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is an additional support reference for troubleshooting Apple Cinema Displays color or distortion issues.
Apple Support Link:
Calibrating your Apple Cinema HD Display for color accuracy
--------------------------------------------------------------------
This should help. If it does not let me know.

Apple 23" Cinema HD Display went off


Hey - I just got done with 30 minutes of trying my cinema HD on my macbook pro and plugging and unplugging. When I plugged it into an extension cord in another socket the monitor started right up. I've had this configuration in my office for years with no problem...until today. Did mac send us a system upgrade that caused a problem with the monitor's power source???? Good luck!!!!

Screen resolution.


Hello there!

It's fortunately quite easy to adjust the resolution your MacBook Pro sends over to your external display.  Try this:
  1. Click the blue Apple icon, at the top-left of your display (while connected to your 23" external monitor).
  2. Click on "System Preferences".
  3. Click on "Displays" in the "Hardware" row.
  4. A display preferences window should now open on each display... one on your laptop, and one on the 23".
  5. In the "Display" tab of this preference window, specifically the one located on your 23" display, should be a list of resolutions available.  Scroll down and select the highest resolution, which for a 23" should be 1920x1200.
This should adjust your resolution to the maximum.  To make these settings easier to get to in the future, check the box in the display preferences labeled "Show displays in menu bar".  You'll see a small icon, meant to look like a display, appear in your menu bar.  Going forward, you can click on this to set/change resolution settings without going through all the above steps.

Hope this helps!
