Apple :: File Compatibility - PC--> MBP

Jan 27, 2010

complain about the differences between Apple's version of MS Office Home and the PC variety.

Speaking generally, have you noticed any issues in working on Word/Excel/Powerpoint files on your MBP that were created on a PC, and vice versa?

I'm asking because my company (as do most) uses PCs at work, and I'm wondering if there could be any issues in my working on MS Office files at home with a MBP and then planning to send them to colleagues who are using PCs.

Apple :: Compatibility With My Hotmail And Safari

Mar 26, 2009

Problems with Safari. This just started a few weeks ago. I keep having compatibility issues with my Hotmail and Safari 3.2.1 (the 4.0 is worse), I can't even open my hotmail messages 4.0. At first I thought it was MSN, so I contacted them. I'm pretty sure it's a browser issue.

It keeps inserting random question mark symbols throughout my outgoing Hotmail messages.

I've tried resetting Safari, deleting cookies... blah blah blah.... done all the updates.

It's annoying. I like Safari, and want to continue using it. I have Firefox and it works fine. Could my computer have a virus?

I have Camino too, but it won't let me put anything in the "subject line" when composing a new hotmail message. Very annoying.

Apple :: Compatibility Between 27" Imac, Macbook Pro, And Windows 7 Laptop

Apr 26, 2010

I currently have all Windows 7 PC's in my house. I find that it is easy to share foles and filders through Windows 7's "Homegroup" thing.

My question is:
If I have windows 7 running through parallels on a macbook pro, will with macbook pro show up in my homegroup?

On a side note I am also thinking of getting a 27" imac. I have an extra monitor so I would like to have windows 7 running on the external monitor, and os x on the main 27" screen.

I just want to make sure I can still share files easily with all the computers.

Apple :: Folder File Management

May 13, 2010

how to organize files in folders by date modified by when i modified it. I know that you can right click and use "arrange by date modified" but that sometimes arranges the files when they were modified online and not by me. I know on windows when i use Arrange by last modified it arranges it according to the date when i last downloaded it or opened it, not by when it was modified online. I would like to be arrange by date last opened or used by me.

Apple :: File Permissions Stuffed

Oct 2, 2009

I some how managed to completely screwup the file permissions ownership on my macbook (10.6). This seems to have also mirrored itself to my timemachine. So I did a clean instal of SL, and then manually moved my files from TM back across, but unfortunatley the permission for all said files are wrong.

So I went as set using cmd+I the permission to myself as owner, as checked to apply to enclosed items, thinkin that would do the trick.

Unfortunately while it did fix a few files, the majority still remain stuck with the "_unknown" as the owner, which is preventing me from opening and using pretty much everything on my mac.

Does anyone know a way to force write the owner permissions to me for ALL files in my home directory?

I have tried the repair permissions in disk utility several times, it does nothing

Apple :: Third-party File Encryption / Encrypted Images With Time Machine

Nov 1, 2009

My understanding is that FileVault's shortcomings are such:

- Documented vulnerabilities
- Requires that user be logged off to backup with Time Machine

I have a few things on my notebook that I would like to be kept safe in the event of a loss or theft. I used to use AxCrypt on Windows for this, but there are no OSX builds for it, so what I'm wondering is this:

- If I create an encrypted image and use it like a TrueCrypt/Cryptainer partition, will Time Machine back the image up as it changes over time like any other file?
- Is there any reason I shouldn't do that over some other way of keeping things safe?

HP/Compaq :: DV3 CPU Compatibility

Mar 2, 2009

I just bought a DV3 yesterday and it came with a P7350 CPU. I was wondering/planning a CPU upgrade in the future. But Im not sure which CPUs this notebook supports. The current one is a Penryn with 1066 MHz FSB. So does that mean any Penryn CPU with 1066 FSB ? Even the Quad Cores ? Theoretically thats is. Since I know the thermal envelope is too big for this laptops cooling.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- RAM Compatibility

Jan 30, 2009

It's pretty nicely specced out, but I won't go over the details, since the GPU and processor have nothing to do with it.

It comes with 4GB of DDR2 RAM, but it's only running a 32-bit OS (or so the box says). Does that mean that only 3GB will be used?

if it does have a 64-bit version of Vista, there's another problem. My backup for my old system was for Vista 32-bit. Will this cause problems on a 64-bit OS? Microsoft support says that some models may face problems when running 32-bit backups on a 64-bit OS, but is this one of them?

Acer :: 5920G AC Charger Compatibility

May 24, 2009

Recently, my adapter just stopped working. I went to my local computer service shop, they said that there is a cut in my cable.

So I asked them is there any replacement for it, and they showed me this charger where the Output is 19V, 3.4A (Inputs are similar).

On the back of my laptop, it says the Input is 19V, 4.74A. (I'm sure you guys are too).

So out of my curiosity, will the charger they offered me be compatible with my laptop? As I don't want my laptop to be damaged due to wrong charger.

I am having is figuring out which SD cards are compatible with the inbuilt reader. I brought a class2 32gb SDHC which is not recognized. I am aware that such high capacity cards often are not, but had hoped in such a new system it would not be an issue.

Can anyone confirm the max sizes for both card slots, so that I don't go an buy a 16gb only for that not to register.

Dell :: Latitude XT2 Compatibility With XT Media Base

Mar 15, 2010

This is a repost of a thread I posted on tabletpcreview's forums. It seems like nobody there knows or the forum is on its way out- almost 100 views with no replies.

So the story is that I'm getting tired of plugging in 4-5 wires every time I go to class or want to study away from home, and a docking station would solve this problem. Unfortunately, the official XT2 mediabase that Dell support wants me to buy is $270. That's almost 25% the cost of this machine! (Part number H266H) There's also another part on that might be $199. Either way, that's a lot of money for a pretty basic port replicator.

The other thing is that when I google "XT2 mediabase", the first hit is a Dell PDF of a manual for the XT2 mediabase. The part number indicated there is PR12S. However, PR12S is the part number for the XT mediabase as well! The PR12S can be ordered online for anywhere between $20-80, so I'd much rather buy it, if it works.

Can someone confirm (ie you own an XT2 and the PR12S or have access to these two parts) whether the XT2 can work mostly flawlessly with the PR12S? I can deal with bypassing an error message, but I need the ports to work. Mainly, the DVI, VGA, ethernet, USB, and audio.

Dell :: RAM Compatibility (upgrading On Inspiron 6400)

Aug 16, 2009

I want to upgrade the ram on an older Inspiron 6400 from 1gb to 2gb. When I look online (including old posts on this site), it seems there are 2 options:

2 x 1GB Module 1024MB-533MHz DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM; or
2 x 1GB Module 1024MB-667MHz DDR2-667 PC2-5300, 200p SODIMM.

Would my system be compatible with either types of ram? It currently runs 2 x 512MB 533MHZ DDR2-533 PC2-4200 .....
