Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

1 Answer

After my MBP has been running for an indeterminate period of time, every 10 seconds or so, I hear a single beep from my speakers...whatever sound I've chosen for my alert. When I try to open new apps, I get an error (-10810)...restarting solves the problem temporarily. What does -10810 mean?

Here are a couple suggestions:

1. If you're using 10.3, you need to get rid of the following:
(where '~' means your Home directory, i.e. '/Users/yourname')

2. If you have Virex or other virus software installed, try uninstalling it. Be sure to use uninstallers that come with the software because simply deleting the application does not fully uninstall most virus software.

Be sure to shut down for a couple of minutes, then do a restart after the above.

I have read that the 10.4.7 update will require a patch that includes missing pieces for intels. If you cannot load terminal to check processes, rebooting is the only cure so far. If you can load terminal then try this:

Check to see how many processes you have running, some people have reported over 500!! Thats crazy! if yours is hi try running this as a test "sudo killall -9 smbd" That should clear your processes up quite a bit. I also read that printer sharing can do this sometimes. This is a problem with the Intel chips and MacOSx from what I have read. The system for some reason doesn't release the processes once it is completed with them. I hear that they are working for an update to rectify this problem.

Hope this helps

PS3 will not turn on. Red Light and a single beep only.

It appears that this PS3 has the infamous "yellow light of death". This is common among older PS3s, that have overheated. It can be fixed by Sony, for about half the cost of a new one plus shipping. Keep in mind it will not have a warranty on the fix. You can attempt to fix it yourself, if you have the proper tools, patience and level of skill. Difficulty on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most difficult, about an 8.

I have the rona keyless entry lock (with single numbers on the front to enter our code.) For some reason, I cannot get it to change the code and have since lost my instructions. Can you please tell me...

remove all batteries then press any button on the keypad 3 times.Wait 10 seconds then replace batteries.You should hear a long beep followed by a short beep then press and hold the 0 button for 3 seconds. Red LED should flash 3 times and you should hear 3 long beeps. Now release the 0 button. Now enter new Master code (4-12 digits) followed by the LOCK button.You only have 15 secs to do this. LED should flash green once followed by a melody tone. Good luck

No menue just background when turned on

9 times out of 10 this is a hard drive issue. You can try removing it and reinstall. If your lucky! this will fix But most of the time you will need to do the following

1. remove all cd's,memory or anything you have connected to the ps3 on the usb's

2. turn on your ps3 from the back switch but leave it with the red light on(on the front).

3 now press the power button (where the red light is)and hold it, you will heard the initial single beep then you will hear a second single beep after that you will hear a double beep. when you hear the double beep release. You may have to do this twice cause it doesn't always work the first time

4. a menu with 6 option will appear. 1st rebulid file system and restart
If that doesn't work then try system update
Note: You'll need a flash drive with Playstations 3.01 update
Here are the instruction on how to do system update with flash drive

if that doesn't work you'll need to restore PS3, note this will delete all your data

Good Luck

Annoying beeping of the Kenmore refrigerator!!!

No sound driver

Turn the power off. Wait about 10 seconds,then power up again get close to the reciever and listen for a click-not from the speakers ,fromthe recievers itself.If you hear a click,you can assume that the power supply is ok for that cercuit.This does'nt eliminate the power supply,but it will do for now.Put the speakers close to the reciever,what you will do now is to power up the reciever while listening to the speakers with the volume off.In about 3-5 seconds you should a hear a slight click from the speakers. Try this with both speakers if you don't plug in a pair of headphones to the headphone jack and play the source . If you still no sound with headphones you at least now know that the output transistors are not the problem or the only problem.The power amp., section are defected also.Message whatever happens.
