Apple :: MBP 2007 No Video

May 16, 2010

Yesterday, everything was running smoothly. My MBP was churning away running Fusion with an instance of XP, nothing too major. Today though, the video is out completely. I can't even get to the option menu on bootup to get it to switch to a Boot Camped Windows 7 (the boot up screen doesn't even show). So... what do I do now? The warranty is out. Am I out of luck? Any tricks I can try? I do plan on taking it to the nearby Apple store to see what they can do. I vaguely remember hearing something about the NVidia chips burning out, but the thing is I wasn't doing anything graphics intensive to begin with.

I even thought I might have dimmed the screen all the way, but using the keyboard to brighten it up didn't solve it. It wouldn't work anyway since even the boot screen doesn't show anything (not even the grey screen).

Apple :: 2007 Macbook Pro1.5Gb/s Vs 3.0Gb/s SATA

Nov 25, 2009

I am planning on purchasing a new hard drive for my mid-2007 Macbook Pro. My MBP currently has a 120GB FUJITSU MHW2120BH, which runs at only 1.5Gb/s. However, the hard drive I want to purchase, Seagate Momentus 7200.4 runs at 3.0Gb/s. I don't know if there will be issues with this and if so, what are possible solutions?

Apple :: Late 2007/Early 2008 MacBook HD Upgrade

Jan 16, 2009

My photography hobby is getting more complex than originally anticipated, so I now want to upgrade my HD from the standard 120GB to something bigger, since I only have about 10 GB left.

I have been looking at the WD Scorpio Black (320GB, 7k200, priced $89 at newegg and 150 on WD site), but was wondering if it would work with my MacBook (late 07/early 08) and if there would be any difference with the sales package from Newegg and WD own site..

Also I was wondering how the performance is, and if there would be any noticeable difference between the 320 Black and a 500 Blue (both WD)?

Also, what is the procedure, when upgrading? My present drive is backed up via TimeMachine (with all docs, pictures, music and apps).

Apple :: MS Office 2007 (Via Crossover) Vs MS Office 2008 For Mac Vs Open Office Vs IWork 2009

Feb 8, 2009

Assume for a second that you need to frequently exchange documents with people using Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007, and that you need to use an Office Suite that has a great UI, so that you can make great, professional looking Word documents in particular with ease.

Which office suite is the best, or if you selected "other", please say what office suite you are referring to.

I have ordered a Macbook Pro, but am totally stumped as to what I should do for an Office suite. If it helps, I can use Office 2007 like a pro and I love it!

Dell :: Deactivate Office 2007

Jul 27, 2007

I own a copy of 2007 office professional. I took it off my laptop and tried to put it on my desktop. I remember activating the software on my laptop and thought if I uninstall it on the control panel (add remove programs) I can just install it on my desktop. When I tried installing it on my desktop it tells me that the code is already been activated and gives me 30 chances to use it. How do I deactivate it and activate it on my desktop?

I own legit copy of Office 2007 Professional as I already activated it on my laptop. If need be I can take pictures of the cd's itself.

Dell :: 2007 M1330 W/T7500 => T9300 Upgradable

Oct 19, 2009

I just wanted to double-check if it's possible to drop in a Santa Rosa "refresh" into an older M1300 (Nov. 2007, std. SantaRosa w/ T7500, latest BIOS) and if it makes sense to...

I can buy a "boxed" T9300 for about 300, which does not exactly translate into a cheap upgrade so before I do so, I'd like to know if anyone's done it and if the performance boost is worth it...

Both processors are ~35W...

Acer :: Recover Office 2007 Trial Only, From Factory Backup

Apr 22, 2009

Can I recover MS Office Home & Student 2007 Trial Edition from the factory backup I did when I get the laptop, but without recovering anything else?

This is an Aspire 4530 running Vista.

The trial version expired and I wanted to uninstall it and install my own copy of Office 2003. But if course it would not uninstall - probably because I wasn't the real "Administrator" at the time. I followed the MS guide for forceably uninstalling and deleting the product, but that failed also.

The only recourse seems to be to re-install it from the 3 factory backup DVDs that I made when I got the laptop. But I have a feeling that all I can do is recover (overwrite) the C drive from the recovery DVDs - either all or nothing. Is that correct?

Apple :: Macbook Pro Video RAM

Mar 4, 2009

when switched to dedicated graphics, do the dedicated and integrated graphics work side-by-side together.

I kind of got this impression since one reseller listed the VRAM on the Pros as being 512 and 768, respectively.

Apple :: RCA To USB Video Work

Sep 7, 2009

I found my old HI8 Video camera a while back & just found an Adpator at FRY's the will charge my old out dated batteries.

So I figure its time to start shooting some video again with it. on HI8.

But wonder what might be involved with pluging in my older video cameras RCA cables into my Mac & making it all download to my I-Movie or whatever I have to do?

Do I just plug it in with an adaptor & go? Or do I need some sort of program?

Apple :: 9600m GT Video?

Nov 16, 2009

I am ready to purchase a new MBP that I will use all day long with hotcomm voice and picture chat, email, powerpoint, word, excel,browsing, and a professional stock trading application called realtick that will run through vm ware or parallels and skype. This will not be my only computer but it is the one I would like to use the most. I am sensitive to heat problems and am considering the 2.4 processor because I have it in my head that it may run cooler. I recently used a thinkpad, (i know not a direct comparison), with a t9300 and dedicated video and it was so hot it could______ fill in blanks... Ultimately the heat is what killed the motherboard so I would like to stay as cool as reasonable.

I am considering the refurbished 2.4 15" with the nvida 9600m GT and 9400m GPU's because I like the price. I also think I can get some value from the dedicated video on my stock charts, (but am really not sure). I do not want to outsmart myself and get the wrong thing. Would someone here with some experience maybe give me an opinion if I should be looking at the 2.53 15" without the switchable video. The heat is one issue, but the other is my realtick charting software that will have to run under windows xp that I am concerned about with regard to needing the stronger GPU.

Apple :: Why Can I Not Play HD Video

Jul 1, 2009

This is the bane of my existence.
System 1: HP DV4
AMD Turion 2.1GHz proc
4GB DDR2 Ram
WD Scorp BLue 250GB HDD
A really good dedicated Graphics card, could play Civ 4 at fairly high settings, 1280x800 no problems.

Now I tried to play the ESiR rip of Saving Private Ryan, no juice.
I tried it in Win 7, nothing, I installed Win 7 RC1, still couldn't do it.
I'm talking a new installation, no software, just VLC.

NOW, the funny thing is my friend, on his Black Macbook (2.4GHz, 4GB ram, bad Intel Int GFX) can play blueray rips PERFECTLY, while doing a million other things.

SO I buy his laptop because he upgraded, install a fresh copy of OSX, and guess what? It still dosen't play (although the hardware is 1000x better than HP's) I don't understand why VLC uses ALL of my CPU, and when I close EVERYTHING, and restart finder 8 times because I can't close it, the thing still stutters. I can watch stuff, but it will freeze on a frame and stutter.

It's not just private ryan, I have Terminator 2, 3, 1, and a lot of other movies.

I've tried quicktime, Realplayer, Nice Player, VLC, WMP, ect.

My friend says it might be the MKV file container, because when he was playing them on his brand new uMBP, they went fine, but he couldn't skip through the video without it glitching (pause and unpause to shake off the 'blocks'). I've never really been able to skip through a video without it hanging or getting the 'blocks'. Even a 10mb AVI sometimes gives me issues. He said it was a bad rip because he couldn't freely 'scroll' through the video.

Could this be some hardware issue?
720P AVIs do seem fine, but everyone puts their stuff into MKV. I thought MKV was better than AVI.

If I convert these into H.264 or something, will that solve the problem?

Apple :: IPad And Flash Video.

Apr 16, 2010

my family are looking to chip in together to get my mom an e-reader for her birthday. Then we thought we'd look at the iPad. It's twice the cost, but it seems to do so much more. However, if we're gonna spend the money, I know she'd like to be able to watch Hulu shows and YouTube stuff.

In another post here someone mentioned that the iPad WILL play flash, although the Apple rep I talked to said it will not. If you have to do anything special or jump through hoops to make it work, then I'm not interested, but what is the case then and how do you make it work if at all?
