Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook

Slow mac computer

Bought my macbook Christmas of 2006.  A couple years later, I was getting close to filling it up and so I noticed that it was starting to operate quite sluggishly.  Figuring that I simple needed to upgraded the hard drive, I went ahead and upgraded it to 500GB.  

For some time it was okay (not as efficient as it was before...but bearable), but now it's almost painful to work on.  I see more of the spinwheel than anything else....any ideas?

Generally, there are a couple of reasons that may cause a Mac computer running slow, but generally 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.

No data to macbook screen


For computers with Mac OS X 10.8 or later, if you have trouble getting your display to work with the computer, access the System Preferences menu and selection the Displays option. Then, press and hold the Option key. In the bottom right corner of the Displays window, you should see a Detect Displays button. Click that button to force the Mac OS to show all the displays, including the macbook's own display.

Otherwise, try resetting the PRAM:
by holding down the Command+Option+P+R keys on your keybord when you turn it on untill you hear the startup chime.

Happy New Year!

Do not use any of the supplied pc software on your mac.  Plug the player into your mac using the usb cable supplied.  It should appear on your desktop.  If it doesn't it's the player itself.  If it appears just drag the songs from your music folder onto the mp3 player.  I've had this same problem.  My daughters each received one for christmas.  One worked and one didn't.
