Question about SMC Computers & Internet

Open Question

Bluetooth on an iMac not working Late 2011 (Edu), need help with enabling

Order MC978LL/A Model A1311 (EMC 2496) This is the iMac I am trying to get up and running. Basically I do know that this iMac comes without the bluetooth so I bought the missing parts and added the hardware to the iMac, however I have no antenna at the moment. The problem is that I just cannot seem to get it working on the software side, it looks like there might be some kext problems or something like that. I get the "No information found" message under System Report->Bluetooth. Guys do you have any idea what could be wrong? I have tried to reset SMC and NVRAM.

I think this can help you:

A zero out reset will regress a device that has non-volatile memory to its factory-fresh state. When done correctly, it completely rewrites your device's internal memory with zeros and ones, ensuring that any data is expunged. It should be used only if you want all information completely obliterated (example: you're selling your handheld, or you're sending it in for repair, and want to protect your privacy). Tungsten E2 note: a hard reset (above) produces the same results as a zero out reset - completely rewrites data on internal memory. No need to perform the steps below. Warning: A zero out reset will erase everything on your device. All your data will be removed, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a zero out reset unless you want to eradicate everyting.

spacer.gif HotSync note: Some third-party applications change the way your device backs up data. Other third-party applications do not back up data. If you have third-party software on your device, please contact the developer to learn what components are backed up during a HotSync operation, and if HotSync conduits are altered. Any data not backed up will be lost.
There are two ways to perform a zero out reset.




  1. Read through these instructions before attempting the reset. We made this method of zero out reset extremely awkward to perform, so that it would not happen by accident. You may need the help of a dextrous friend if you find it too difficult to do by yourself.
  2. Connect your device to its HotSync cable or cradle. The HotSync cable does not need to be connected to your PC, and it does not need to be connected to power.
  3. Press and hold the Power button and UP on the 5-way navigator.
  4. While continuing to hold Power and UP, press and hold the HotSync button on the HotSync cable or cradle. As you press HotSync, make sure your other finger doesn't slide to LEFT or RIGHT on the 5-way navigator; it needs to be exactly on UP during the entire process. Although you are pressing the HotSync button, a HotSync operation should not begin.
  5. While continuing to hold Power, UP and HotSync, press and release the RESET button on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?). This is very difficult to do with only one person; you may wish to hold the stylus in your mouth and use your hands to press Power, UP and HotSync.
  6. Release Power, UP and HotSync.
  7. If you did this reset correctly, the screen of your device will go blank, and you will not be able to turn it on. The charging LED will not light up, even if it's connected to power. It will appear to be "dead." (any other activity — such as the Palm OS logo or a rainbow-colored Boot Log screen appearing — means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again)
  8. Your device will appear "dead" for several minutes (up to 10 minutes). During this time, your device's internal memory is being reformatted. If your device doesn't appear "dead" for several minutes with the screen completely blank, the zero out reset was performed incorrectly; try again.
  9. After several minutes, your device will "wake up" and the Palm and Palm Powered logos will appear as if you had performed a hard reset. Eventually, you'll be taken to a series of screens to calibrate the touchscreen and set date & time.
    887_palmone.gif 887_poweredcircle.gif 887_touchscreen.gif
  10. If you want your handheld to remain in factory state, stop here. If you want to restore data to your device, follow the steps for recovering after a hard reset (a zero out reset is a special type of hard reset).

Quick Erase, Secure Erase
LifeDrive only When you perform a hard reset on a LifeDrive mobile manager, you will see two options on the reset screen: Quick Erase and Secure Erase. Both of these are types of hard reset. Quick Erase: Perform a Quick Erase reset for a regular hard reset, to get your device to wake up and respond again. This eliminates user information on the drive in such a way that there is no info available to anyone using the device. A Quick Erase reset takes approximately 5 minutes.
spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Secure Erase: Perform a Secure Erase reset if you are turning the device over to a new owner. A Secure Erase helps prevent your files from being restored or recompiled by a new owner who might remove the hard drive and use a drive reader to access your information. This completely deletes all user info on the drive. A Secure Erase reset takes about 30 minutes.
Note: If you use a password to protect your device, you must do a Secure Erase when you hard reset your device; the Quick Erase option does not appear on the reset screen.
  1. Slide the power switch to the right and hold it in that position.
  2. While holding the switch to the right, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button on the bottom of your device.
  3. Wait for the reset screen to appear (it will say "Warning, Erase all data?"). Then release the power switch.
  4. Choose your type of reset:
    • Press Up on the 5-way navigator to perform a Quick Erase (5 minutes)
    • Press Down to perform a Secure Erase (30 minutes).
  5. During the reset process, a status screen appears with the words "Quick Erase" or "Secure Erase" and a progress bar, followed by screens showing the Palm, Palm Powered and LifeDrive logos.
  6. Then you will be prompted to tap the screen to align the digitizer and select the language you want to use on your device. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar.
  7. When the "Welcome: Setup your device" screen appears, the hard reset is complete. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your device.

Hey Enrico, Check out this thread about installing the module into the exact same laptop: http://www.notebookforums.com/thread185110.html
This particular post (found down the page on page 2 of the thread) reveals that someone has succesfully installed it without the need for drivers: http://www.notebookforums.com/post2555643-3.html
Follow that thread and check that you have installed the module in the correct location as described in a couple of the messages in the thread.

Is there any way to replace super drive of apple imac by any other external optical drive


Yes. There is a tutorial here http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+21.5-Inch+EMC+2428+Optical+Drive+Replacement/5961
that will show you exactly how to access and replace it. Be SURE that you feel comfortable doing so though as you can do more harm than good if you aren't careful. Apple is notorious for tiny cables and logic board plugs that will break if not handled properly. Make sure you have the correct tools and that you have large enough suction cups to pull the screen out. If you pull on a small portion of the screen only, it will snap into pieces on you and they cost more than the drive to replace.

GOOD LUCK

MA878LL iMac 24" core 2 duo 2.4 do not turn on,


Checking the power supply isn't the easiest thing to do, it involves pulling apart the entire machine.
You can try resetting the SMC, unplugging all power, hold the power button for 5 seconds, replace power, then attempt to turn on.
if it still won't turn on, and assuming you didn't get AppleCare or it is expired (past 3 years) it might be worth taking in to an Authorized Apple Repair Facility and see if they will check it out for free. If it is under warranty, most definitely take it in or call 1-800-APL-CARE
If neither of those are an option, Power Supply http://www.ifixit.com/Apple-Parts/iMac-Intel-24-Inch-2-4-2-8-GHz-or-3-06-EMC-No-2211-GHz-Power-Supply/IF169-002
a tear down from iFixit for the 20" model, it is most likely very similar for your model as well http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Installing-iMac-Intel-20-Inch-EMC-2133-and-2210-Power-Supply/1006/1
Hopefully that helps. Good Luck

Hi i have a u135 and it hasbuilt in blue tooth but i donot know how to activate could u help


Not sure if this will work for your model but its worth a try. Copied from MSI support faq website
You have to press the WLAN button located right next to the power button in order to enable/disable the Bluetooth function. Press WLAN button once, Enable WLAN. Press WLAN button twice, Enable Bluetooth. Press WLAN button thrice, Enable both WLAN and Bluetooth. Press WLAN button four times, Disable both WLAN and Bluetooth.
