    I have exactly the same problem - intemittent loss of the lower two-third of my display. I can usually get the screen working again by moving the screen on its hinge. I opened it up and checked all the connections, no improvement. As the screen works well most of the time i figure it is something like a hairline split in the ribbon cable, I didn't think to examine it under a magnifying glass. The LCD itself should be fine I figure, so can I get a replacement ribbon cable?



    Did you solve your problem?

    Hi,

    Just to let you know that I fixed my problem by luck - a friend who runs an apple repair shop had just received a similar computer and he installed that screen on my computer for $200. That was a wonderful solution for me, as I couldn't have done anything too mechanically complicated, I don't think.

    thanks to those who responded to my original request for help.

Hi guys,

If you need a new ribbon cable, you might be able to find a place that specializes in used/refurbed Macs.

Another option is finding parts or parts-machines on eBay. I once bought a TiBook 400MHz with a bad motherboard, because I wanted spare parts (mostly a display) for my 500MHz TiBook - $200 for the parts machine, vs. $500+ for buying a new display elsewhere.

Those ribbon cables are terribly delicate - - wires look like sewing threads, and if they break, you're done - - you're not soldering _those_ back together.

Good luck - - if I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using FixYa.com,

Jon

Is there a USB driver for Apple Mac Pro OS 10.6


There is a driver, but the driver comes with the OS. If you have recently rebuilt your leptop, make sure you installed the correct version of OS for your model of Mac.

There is a possibility your have deleted something you shouldnt have, or something has become corrupted. In this case it would be a better idea to backup your files and use DiskUtility to check persmissions and files system for problems. If still no luck it may be a good idea to re-install your MacOS.

My webcam isn't working on Skype during video calls


Hello,

To set up your webcam, please follow these steps:

Download and install the most recent drivers for your video device. If your video camera does not have drivers for Mac OS X, please use the drivers.

Select your video device in Skype under Skype Preferences- Video. This step is not required if you have an Apple iSight.
Make sure the option Enable Skype video is ticked. You can also set video privacy settings to desired options in the same window.

The minimum system requirements for Skype 2.0 for Mac are a Mac OS X v10.3.9 Panther or newer, G4 800 MHz and above, any G5 or Intel processor, 512MB RAM, 40 MB free disk space on your hard drive and a microphone.

Suggested webcams include Apple iSight, Philips SPC900NC, or Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000.

Video and call quality may vary greatly in environments with conditions below these recommendations. Please be sure, that your webcam is connected and not in use with another program.

If you experience any issues with your webcam, please contact the manufacturer directly.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

How do I get my laptop to to print on a Lexmark printer without the software?


Your printer will not print without the correct drivers installed in your computer. To locate and download your drivers, you can visit the Lexmark website.

Just enter the information requested and the website will direct you to the correct drivers.

Also, you'll need to know your printer's model number to obtain the drivers you need.

Im having an issue with my Apple Macbook's audio


why use windows7? you paid for your macosx that comes with your macbook and mind you that macosx is a very powerful operating system and way better than windows. i suggest you use the macosx. you'd be amazed on how easy it is to use. i myself am a mac user and i assure you you'll never have to worry with viruses again. anyway, if you insist to use the windows7 i think the problem there is the driver for your audio. you might need the bootcamp driver on the cd that came with your macbook. try installing the audio driver and i am almost certain this will work. the red light shining in it is the laser used with fiber optic cables. your macbook is equipped with an optical audio port if you wanted a digital output going to your sound system (if it supports optical inputs).

The dock went missing from the screen


It sounds like something went wrong with the install. the Archives option, saves your current system folder and makes another one. After you restore there should be a folder named "previous operating systems" or something like that.

I don't think there is a way around it.

Installed vista on macbook air and some drivers dont work


Ok, so you commited the sacriledge of installing Windows on a Mac. Enough complaining... The Mac hardware is really tight to the Mac software. Some features of the Mac aren't understood by Vista (and XP for the matter). I ask myself if the F12 (eject cd) is working under Vista?
