This is a horrible solution to this problem, HORRIBLE. this is the equivalent of saying you blew out your engine on your car- so you\'ll get a tractor to pull it. what you see inside a mac is a REALLY simple configuration of hardware for a MB Pro, in an air, there are only two visible removable components under the base plate, its a SUPER SMART integrated logic board sitting DIRECTLY under the keyboard - starting at the magsafe port on the right side of the comp, and ending about the bottom of the home row of keys. the keyboard is not REALLY a keyboard its part of the body and called a WRIST SIDE DOWN MASTER PLATE. its connected to the logic board by one cabling system and controls the power buttons, the trackpad and part of the wifi / lcd cabling moving through the hinges. SOOOO>..... if the FLIPPING keyboard magically didn\'t work, you would have bunked this cord. its functions are so essential, it won\'t boot without them being fully functional, the laptop makes a special error light code and sound and won\'t boot. SOooooo, what happens when you let oil get on a super complex electrical component with no fan and no ability to move air thought the system??? it develops an issues with the ability to push electricity through the gold PINS ON THE LOGIC BOARD THAT PUSH FIRMWARE (the little 100101011s the tell electricity to make the lumps of metal and brilliance in our computers do all this fancy stuff) to initiate the hardware and components to do their jobs.first try resetting your electric system. you need to do a PRAM and SMC reset they are a very very simple. heres the instructions for that comp. you just hold special keys on your keyboard while its booting.

But honestly you need to have your logic board pulled and a liquid damage repair cleaning done. find an ACMT who will do this, its REALLY important you use an ACMT, apple certified mac technician. apple will charge you to replace this $900 part. and ACMT will clean your board, they own their own shops and don\'t make money under apple\'s corporate umbrella. they fix, they don\'t replace. and id put ANY acme\'s skills against the BEST genius and apple care in the country anyway. certs are brutal to maintain, acmt is the WORST. apple is brutal on this process, if an IT tech has obtained and is current with the credentials and apple logos displayed, you\'re golden. when i clean a board, it depends on the extent of the spill damage. oil will be brutal to remove, its not like you can wipe a delicate electronic component down with you\'re kitchen counter cleaner. and its probably too think to activate the contact indication systems, so its gonna be a blind shot. the repair kits and solutions are about $40-60. do not pay more then $200. the longer you leave this on the board, the more then heat the computer no actually generates will cause the oil to spread potentially causing more damage and eventually showing your computer down completely.

If you want to verify that I\'m correct you go to your Apple menu look at the about the Mac, hit the more info button on the bottom. From the comps main screen you are gonna want to see the system report. under usb you\'ll find the detailed info on the keyboard and trackpad. WHICK ARE ALL ONE PIECE - one can\'t be bad without the other. so if you see the info in here, the computers main brain is completely processing the keyboard. do your reset as stated below and find an ACMT. i just saved your air, this woulda been gone in about 4.5 months. i own an apple IT consulting business and have all 9 apple pro IT certs. bypassing an issue is always shitty advice, Computer can do all the components of functional doing their job. Most legit people will give you some level of a trouble shoot for free. All certified Apple IT techs have to maintain a strict code of ethics and morality conducts dictating their behaviors. we spend a ton on our certs and maintaining them. apple audits all of us at least once a year. they have a tech registry. etc. i recommend apple cert mac techs. this product line so fast it\'s brutal to keep up with and they are absolutely kicking the door down the new technology. You don\'t have access to Apple\'s insight global service exchange track to see the pro manuals to get access to Apple\'s tools and diagnostics there\'s no way you can properly tightness six one of their computers. good luck.

Edit MOD on Mac, Cut/crop/merge/edit MOD files on Mac


MOD is a widely used tapeless video format by camcorders such as JVC, Panasonic and Canon in quite some models. And many MOD files come in HD quality. However, when it comes to MOD editing, it can be a headache to a lot users because many video editing software applications do not MOD files, especially on Mac.

Doremisoft Mac MOD Converter does not only work as an excellent Mac MOD file converter, but also works as a great easy MOD editor for Mac.

With this MOD editing software you can cut MOD file length, crop MOD video, merge more than one MOD files into a single file, and edit MOD video effects. The following steps will guide you through how to do the above editing to your MOD files:

Step 1: Add MOD files
Click the "Add File" button to browse your hard drive and import the MOD files you want to edit.

Step 2: Cut MOD file
If you just want the best part from an MOD file, you can cut your MOD video to get rid of the redundant part and only keep the best part you want. Click on the Clip button next to the Add button to open the Cut MOD video window, and follow the methods stated on the below screenshot of the windows to cut your MOD file.

Step 3: Crop MOD video
Click on the Edit button to the right of the Clip button to open the Edit window. Then you will see the Crop window. This function allows you to zoom in a specific area or remove the unnecessary sides from your MOD video. You can just drag the crop frame to specify the area you want to crop. Or you can set the crop values on the lower part of the window.

Step 4: Edit MOD video effects
If you are not satisfied with the video effects of your original MOD video, click on "Effect" tab on the lower left of the Edit window, and you can start to edit the video effects. Here you can set video brightness, contrast and saturation of your MOD video and apply a special effect such as gray, old film or emboss to your MOD video.

Step 5: Merge MOD files
If you want to join multiple MOD files into a single file, you can just click on the Merge button above the Profile list. And after the conversion, the added MOD files will be converted into a single file.

Step 6: Convert HD video
Now, you are done with editing MOD video files, you can just select an output format (eg: if you want to convert MOD to iPhone supported MP4 format) from the Profile list for each added file (if you are not merging them into a single file), and then click on the big Start button on the lower right of the main window to start converting your MOD files into the format you prefer.

Tip: You can tick the "Apply to all" option to apply the same output format to all added files.

How do i get rid of unwanted adverts coming up when I go into my web browser on my mac book


Hi
Open your browser - I assume Safari
go to the "Safari" menu at the very top of your screen and make sure there is a tick-mark next to "Block Pop-Up Windows" in the drop-down menu.
If you want more protection against ads search for "AdBlock Safari" If you download and install it, most ads will not be downloaded to your computer.
Hope this helps

MY MAC LAPTOP IS RUNNING KIND OF SLOW- I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO CLEAN


Well, generally speaking there are a number of reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but commonly two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system from: http://www.howtospeedupmac.com/

Above the message dates is a bar that says "date". Click it and then press the tiny arrow button until the arrow points downward. As for the ads, you can't get rid of them, unless you get the paid service. :-)
