Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The remote worked fine with a Mac Pro laptop. Now that I am trying to use it with a MacBook laptop, it suddenly won't do anything with my PowerPoint program. I can use the laser pointer and that's all.

Hey dlaruel,

Assuming that you're talking about an Apple Remote:
Go to System Prefs, and find the Security panel. Near the bottom, there is a check box "Disable remote control infrared receiver".
Make sure it is NOT checked.
Next to that is a Button labeled "Pair..."
Click this button to "pair" your remote to this computer.

Sorry that you are getting the run around. This has nothing to do with the computer. This is a Microsoft PowerPoint problem.

Is these a driver to get USB connection to macbook

Are you asking if there is an adapter? There actually is an adapter (USB to S-Video) that will work between the two. However, with my MacBook C2D 2.4 GHZ, I use mini DVI to VGA adapter. This allows instant laptop to projector picture and sound. You can use it for anything from powerpoint to movies or even as a giant monitor. The mini-DVI to VGA adapter can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $20. Look for it in the accessory aisle near the Apple machines. IMO, this is a priceless addition to your MacBook. I hope this helps! Please remember to vote if it does.
