Question about Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for Mac

2 Answers

Mac OS computer

I obtained a Mac OS computer from the Salvation Army.  The plug-ins are different from the Cajun 686 I was using.  Where do I plug in the Keyboard and Mouse?  It doesn't say on the back of the computer and there are four different places I could plug them in. I've tried them all and only the start up pictures come on the monitor.  The mouse and keyboard I can't get to work.

Can you describe the machine or give a model name.   It may be so ancient, that it will not be worth using.

This appears to be a hardware question, not OS, If the computer is not beige, the keyboard and mouse connections are USB.

I purchased some furniture from The Salvation Army. The furniture was infested with Bed Bugs


That's not good. Keep it outside and treat it with Diatomaceous Earth. It's a natural powder and it works! You can buy it online. If not interested in that option, take it back to the S.A. They should understand and refund your money.

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.

No microsoft keyboard detected


There are a whole slew of things, to try, and you might have done them already. First, which operating system are you running?

Now on for the tests:
1. Do both left and right USB ports work? Try other devices like flash thumb drives, do both left and right work, by this can you read and write to them when they are connected directly to the ports, no hub.
2. Have you tried both ports directly with the keyboard? Again, if you are using a hub, take it out and connect directly.
3. Did this work before on an older OS X? What about on a Windows PC, does it work on other computers?
4. Load the App Store and see if there is a new driver for the keyboard.
5. If App Store doesn't have a driver for the keyboard, have you tried directly with Microsoft to get the Mac driver (this is not always possible, but you might want to try to see if Microsoft has a OS X driver.
6. If you must use a hub, please test without it first, but if that is the source of the problem, then you might need to get a powered hub. I never use other than powered hubs as I don't want to tax my ports that much.
7. I suppose someone should ask, but why do you need an additional keyboard (Microsoft or otherwise)? "I just prefer it" is an acceptable answer. My personal preference is for the Mac built in keyboard or one to the other wired keyboard or Bluetooth keyboard. I also have a Logitech wireless and another wired one and they both work. If you are using Fusion/Parallels/Boot Camp to run Windows on your Mac, please note that command works as the Windows key.
8. With keyboard plugged in reboot.
9. Reboot, login and wait a bit, then plug in the keyboard. This will cause an interrupt and may cause it to download the driver.

FYI, I just checked Microsoft and they do have a driver for OS X at: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/natural-ergonomic-keyboard-4000 but it seems to have stopped at Lion (10.7) but you might want to try it anyway. But this is why we also need to know which OS X version you are running. If you are still on Lion, then you should be in luck with the Microsoft driver for OS X.

Wich port do I plug the keyboard into,its a mac G3


If the Dell keyboard is a USB keyboard you can use it with a Mac. Just plug it into one of the Mac's USB ports. The keys are different (the Dell doesn't have the special Mac symbols so you'll have to get used to which keys do what) but it will work. (In fact I'm using a generic USB keyboard on my eMac here at work.)

If the Dell keyboard is a standard PS/2 style round plug you're out of luck. There's no place to plug in that style keyboard on a Mac.

I cannot writte some letters


Obtain any model of USB keyboard from any other computer and plug it into your MacBook. If you can type those letters from that keyboard, you have a keyboard hardware issue. If you still can't, check System Preferences / International and make sure you are set to use the US keyboard.

All scans with Umax Powerlook III are totally black around the edges with strange color bars where the images should be. This is using Umax Silverfast 6.0 software on a Mac running OS 10.4.11


sounds like the scanner is dead. only way to be sure that its not a software issue is to try that scanner on another machine. if you get the same issue on seperate machines, its a good bet that scanner is toast. Fortunately, you can usually go to the Salvation Army or Good will, and get a used scanner for 15 bucks, all you need is downloaded drivers and appropriate cables.
