Question about Apple MA590LLA Mac Desktop

NVidia Problem I have been using Boot Camp to play Sins of a Solar Empire in Vista. Sometimes when I am playing, my monitor will go completely dark for a few seconds and then I can resume playing the game. When i quit the game, Windows tells me that a problem occurred with my nVidia drivers. What can I do to fix this?

Are you using the latest version of Boot Camp (v2.1)? If you are not, fire up Apple Software Update on your computer's Windows partition and update it. That includes MANY updates for graphics and the like. If that doesn't work, you can go to nvidia.com and get the drivers from there. Most likely the 8800 GS or the 7300 GT. If you have a white iMac, it's the 7300 and those drivers can be found here and if you have a brand new Aluminum iMac, it is the 8800 GS, and the drivers are here. Be careful to install the correct one as the second link is ONLY for the 8800 GS.

Apple power macintosh 8500 video won't display


Could be either or both of two problems. One is signal routing: some monitors want synch on green, some want separate synch. The VGA adapters come in different types for each, and some adapters have switches on them to select your monitor type. You may need a different adapter. The other issue is resolutions and refresh. You have to tell your Mac to use a resolution that the monitor can accept. You may have to use software like SwitchRes to enable non-Apple resolutions.

20" iMac Boot


Ar this is a regular problem i get when people try to install Windows XP or Linux on Boot camp e.t.c.
What's happened is Linux has Tampered with the boot up files and now it won't be able to boot into Linux or Leopard.
What you need to do is insert you Leopard Install disk that came with you iMac Into the Disk Drive, the disk/disks are grey and may be two CDs or 1 DVD.
Restart the iMac and the moment you hear the chimes go off when it boots up, Hold down C on the keyboard. The boot disk for leopard will then boot up,
From here follow the instructions and if your lucky you may be able to upgrade, if not, go through the system utility and repair disk permissions e.t.c.
If nothing works, You will have to do a clean install,
But you may be able to recover a thew images and mp3 files with a great bit of software i like to use, http://www.prosofteng.com/products/data_rescue.php
You do have to pay for it, and you will need to install it on macbook e.t.c. if you have one in order for it to work If your confused there is a number of guides out there on that website or on google
Hope i have been of any help
Regards

If you are running thought bootcamp for the windows partition have you installed the boot camp drivers?

If not, put in your OS X instalation CD and the auto run should open the instaler for these, jsut follow that thought restart the mac and see if it works then.

Parallel Desktop on Mac OS X


Ahh - Parallels is working but can't locate the disk image for XP (assuming) that was created by Apple's BootCamp.

Locate the image "disk0.hdd". Once found, copy it to your "Documents/Parallels/My Boot Camp/ " folder (you're logged in on the Mac as jeremybrunelle right ?)

BOOT CAMP SEEMS TO BE UNSTABLE WITH MY APPLICATIONS


This is a not a Boot Camp - but a cheap way to get Fusion V.2 which is the best run-XP-and-OSX-both-at-one-time program.
1.  Do NOT use Parallels software b/c it is slow, clunky, and a memory hog - this is experience speaking :)
2.  get a USED copy of VMWare Fusion VERSION 1 (this is not the newest version - but hold on!) from ebay/Amazon whatever - but don't pay over 20.00 (I paid 17.95 shipping included)!
3.  Install the older (version 1)  VMWare Fusion and then go to the VMWare Fusion website to get a free download of Version 2.  They offered this free to all owners of version 1.
Now something to think about.  When I had VMWare Fusion 1 on my machine, it literally took 3 seconds to load Windows XP (and some people wonder why I have a Mac!).  Upon installing version 2, it takes 10 seconds - and I do not know why!
BTW - make sure this free update is still available http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/

This works b/c a lot of surplus V1's are being sold cheap.  It is s totally legit option b/c the company is offering to any legit owners of version 1.
