wanted to play this on my macbook (on os x, I am not gonna install windows just for the 1 game)
Black & White 2 for Mac has the following system requirements (minimum): 1.8GHz Intel Mac only, 512MB RAM, 128MB graphics card, DVD drive, 5.1 GB of hard disk space, and Mac OS X v10.4.8 or later . Intel GMA processors are not supported. Appleís latest GeForce 9400 M-enabled Macbooks are a go!
It meets the requirements, why won't Feral port it?
Just installed Visa 64 , everything went fine , but every time i boot into Vista i get a black screen with a white cursor in the top left have corner flashing very fast and it does this for almost 60 seconds and then Vista boots normally.
I have tried unplugging everything from my Mac , but i still get the same problem.
It looks like Vista is wating for something then it gives up, I have not installed any software only the bootcamp driver.
Anybody know what is wrong, I had Xp on previously and did not have this problem on fat32 , Vista only works on NTFC if that makes a difference.
1) Notebook Cover -> which is best? black or White?. Will the white get dull and stained over time?, Does the black look like cheapy plastic?. Does the black look like the ones on the black Inspirons because I think those do look nasty?
2) Built-In Broadband card (Wireless 5540 Mobile Broadband HSDPA Mini-Card ) -> how is the reception of these units compared to the USB dongle ones?. Is Access to where they are installed at the bottom of the notebook hence not voiding waranty if i decide to install at a later date? or Am I just better off getting one off ebay at a cheaper price?
I have a Dell 1525 laptop which will not boot beyond the Dell logo, I get a black screen with a white cursor.¬† I tried to use the last known good configuration and it started out fine but I got the black screen again. I can't go into the safe mode, it only goes as far as loading the files. I tried booting from the cd to do a repair but that options says¬†there¬†are no problems.¬†I attached an external monitor and I get the same black screen with the white cursor.¬†I am running Vista Home as my operating system.¬†
I recent;y installed a version of windows on my Dell Laptop, Inspiron 6000. I worked for a week or two then when I turned it on a couple days ago, it won't go pass the black screen with the blinking white line. A user some where on this site on an other post that had similar problems said that ¬†it to¬†re-install¬†and delete the¬†existing¬†partition and create another one with 120GB. I did but when creating another partition, I tried to type in the 122880 MB (122880MB = 120GB), and upon pressing ENTER, the numbers 122880 goes back to the number of MB of the partition disk space I had¬†previously. I hope this all make sense. I do not have the money to buy another laptop. I have a Windows XP CD, but not the original. The laptop worked fine before with this version.
To fix the blinking line on the start-up black screen, all I need to do is to re-install windows XP and change the partition to 120GB. But every time I try to change the number of MB, it doesn't work but reverts back to the original number. Is there another way to fix the blinking-white-line-on-the-start-up-screen?
Also, I tried to use the repair control...doesn't work.
I have a screen problem on my Laptop, on start-up it shows a white screen with black lines (Picture below) only happens once every 5-10 start-ups. Only happens for 5-10 Secs & sorts itself out before it boots up.
Other time it happens is when I'm using the internet, the screen just sticks, but then when I move the screen, it stops.
I have dell Inspiron¬†5520 laptop now i have install windows 8.1.when i install windows 8.1 the screen display problem accur.screen color is convert into black and white and also distortion problem occur. I have already install chipset drivers.......
I've had the W530 for two years and there is an issue when turning on the laptop. I haven't contact Lenovo's warranty yet.¬† ¬† When I press the power button, frequently it shows the Thinkpad white logo against black background and won't load. Windows at all. It just stuck there. ¬† I have already restore the system but the problem is still there. ¬† Oddly, when it does work (which is rare), the "to interrupt normal startup, press enter" appears. Everytime it works, that phrase would appears. ¬† The only components I have connected to this laptop are ethernet cable for internet, USB hub, and external drive hooked up through PC slot on the side. ¬† Laptop Spec: Windows 7 Professional with latest update Intel Core i7 3720QM 2.6HGHZ Bios 2.7
A few days ago I fired up my dv6 Pavilion 3240us and it did something weird. The colors are sort of out of whack. Bright white area show as Cyan and dark areas (black) are a sort of Burgundy or deep red.¬† I can adjust the contrast down a little and the brightness down to -13 and the cyan mostly goes away, but the dark areas are even more more red. ¬† I update the Catalyst app and drivers and did a complete update of Windows 7 (which took around 24 hours and it still wants more time) to no avail. ¬† How did it happen? One day it was working perfectly and it shut down normally. The next day it was screwed up. Nothing happened to the machine between those times. I would show you pictures but I've found that screenshots of it look normal on other machines, eg: my desktop. ¬† At one point yesterday when I tried playing a game on it the problen suddenly cleared up. That lasted for a few minutes before reverting the the screwed up state. ¬† I am writing this on it; it does work. But trying to look at videos or most pictures or games it looks really wild, many times too strange to see what's going on.
I have a XPS L702X, purchased it last year at the beginning of the summer. After a couple of weeks of use, the colors¬†would change on the screen and the screen would start flickering. The dell people did a remote assistance and updated the bios and graphics software. It stopped for a little while. Then the colors would just change but not flickering yet. Then it started all over again, but now it would flash and lock up my keyboard, but I could still control the mouse with an external one. So I got a live CD to see if that works and it runs, but the screen still flashes white and gets static. I can see the desktop and move the mouse but it eventually turns all white and static comes through the speakers. Now the computer will not even turn on at times, it sounds like it is booting up, but then just shuts off.
I have also tried doing a system restore but it will not stay on long enough to go through the process, this last time it shut down completely before even finishing.
I have also tried using an external monitor and it will go through until the screen starts flickering.
Loooks like the white Macbook has been updated again. Now it has a 2.13GHz CPU (previously 2GHz), 2GB DDR2 800MHz RAM (previously used DDR2 667MHz RAM) and 160GB HD (120GB HD prevously). I'm sure the aluminum updates should get some sort of "bump up" in the near future.
I may just get the 2.0GHz model, update the RAM to 4GB, take out the 120GB HD and put in a 320GB 7200 RPM HD and be done with it.
i have had a problem with my white macbook overheating. now the fans startsup even when i watch youtube videos and the CPU and GPU area feels very hot. any idea to make it cooler. and i have reapplied arctic silver on my gpu and cpu and made sure that they are in touch and working properly.
i just got a new white macbook. It came with two restore dvds. one for osx and the other for applications. If i put in a new hard drive will i be able to install osx from the restore dvd or will i need a copy of a legit Mac OSX 10.5.x dvd. the guy at the apple store said the restore dvds will only work on this computer. i dont know if that means it will only work on the same hard drive or not. i plan on upgrading to a 320gb 7200 rpm.
i got my macbook white 2.1 ghz intel core 2 duo last year. i wanna do ram upgrade on it. rite now it has 1 gb 667 mhz ddr2 sdram, i was thinking of upgrading it to 2 or 4(if possible). but i dunno which type of ram n wht company would be suitable. i mean i tried looking into my local electronics store on their site, but they are showing some sodimm ram or sumthn... nt sure wht any of those mean..
I just made the long-coveted switch to the Mac world and I ended up getting the 13" white macbook just this past Sunday.
Long story short, I had to fill out a questionnaire for something, pen had spilled some ink into my hand, unknowingly, and I went back to my computer to finish typing up this report, took my hand off and then BLAMMO, blue ink stain.
I did a search and saw recommendations of toothpaste and isopropyl alcohol. Would these be good to try out or are there other remedies you guys can teach me?
a lot of people that owns the white macbook complains that it gets too hot, well the area that gets hot is the gpu and the cpu heatsink.
well i decided to open that baby up and change the thermal compound. from just using it for the past hour it seems to still heat up but at a slower rate and the final temp is noticeablly lower, not to mention that it haven't gone through the break-in phase.
unfortunatly i didn't take any pictures and a lot of people have done this so if you really want to, you can search of it online. but i didn't find some information that can help you make the process easier.
taking off the keyboard cover is pretty easy. after removing the screws make sure you keep track of them, this is the hardest part. the right side does not come out that easier, don't be afraid to bend it a little bit. the trick is try to remove the keyboard ribbon right now if you can't get it completely off, then you don't have to worry about using a bit more force, there's really nothing to keep you back...............
About seven months ago, I bought a Lenovo T400 for law school and left my 2006 13" MB with my dad (the computer mentioned in the subject line). All he did was install Snow Leopard on it, and then let it sit and barely use it. So, last time I was home I took it back from him to have as a fun/backup laptop.
I know the fan on this model (compared to the older G4 iBooks) always did run somewhat frequently, but usually I could tell what I was doing that would do it (something CPU intensive). However, since I've been messing around with it, I've noticed the fan runs a LOT more often, at a high speed. I could even let it sit for five minutes with no applications running and the fan will turn on for a bit.
I don't think I'm just spoiled by the cool-running T400, but I'm fairly sure the fan is running more often than when I used this MacBook. Can anyone tell me if Snow Leopard (at 10.6.2) is making a difference? Or is there some other issue that can be present here? I've also done the PRAM reset tricks to no avail.
My friend just gave me her White Macbook pre 2007 i beleive to fix because i fix all her computers but this is the first time im trying to fix a mac . Upon pressing the power button im greeted by the BONG tone and a white screen. Then i start hearing the HD making some very messed up noises witch to me are the fimiliar sound of a hd failure and so i beleive this is the problem. After a minute or two i get a flashing folder with a ? on it witch means it can't find the system files it needs to boot. So i tryed booting from the Tiger discs but it will not boot. Now this is leading me to beleive that it is the logic board. Right now im waiting till morning to buy a torx t8 so i can replace the HD.
i have had my like MB for just over a year...so my warranty just ran out. i noted that the top case has started cracking around the edge, and asking my friends and people who has the macbook, this is a pretty common problem. but mine is getting pretty bad.
Do you think Apple would send me a replacement topcase and if so, how much would it cost. i don't know if anyone else has had this problem and asked for a replacement.
I really want to buy a black one as I prefer a matte finish and it wouldn't discolor, but I want it new and I cannot find any here in Canada, so I will have to buy a white one. This is going to be my very first mac and to me it's a lot of money... I hope it will be worth it (I'm a little nervous about the switch) .
do you find intel hd graphics performance for non intensive tasks sluggish like scrolling on certain sites and maximizing a youtube video, i see a white screen for two seconds before the full screen renders. not like this when i disable automatic graphics switching... i also used migration assistant to get my data back from my 2009 c2d i sold. happens with firefox not chrome or safari...
1.I really didn't find much info on the (now not so) new white unibody Macbooks, expect some items for sale. And please, don't tell me that just buy the aluminum model for the extra $200, my question is strictly from an engineering point of view: heat. We all know aluminum Macbooks are quite hot, right? But how does the white unibody compares to the aluminum regarding heat issues?
2.What might be the reason that the whole bottom of the white unibody contcts the table beneath it, compared to the aluminum model, which has four rubber contact points on the four corners?
3.On the other thread I read a dedicated graphics card does not really add to battery consumption. Can you confirm that?
My main usage profile is office, web and seeing (HD, if available) Youtube videos. This one is rather a 15" vs. 13" Pro question, and half hypothetic. Let's say, all things are being equal on two models, the processor none the least, the only differences are one model has the integrated Nvidia, the other the integrated Intel plus discreet Nvidia combo, which one would serve me better, regarding performance and battery life? The discreet graphics would at least turn on when playing the HD videos?
4.Running native Windows (7 or XP) still suck on Macbooks, because of the drivers?
its the old 2006 black macbook, basically dual core 2ghz and 2gb or ram which i will upgrade to 4gb, i was wondering since its on an old intel GMA 950 can it run windows 7 with aero and all its goodness? while i will primarily use OSX i would like the option to boot in windows 7. anyone has tried on an GMA950 here? thanks thats my only concern. ALSO about hairline cracks on the macbook, i read that apple would replace/fix it for free, and there are some hairline cracks on the palm rest, think apple will still honor it?
Just saw these pictures of this custom Macbook air, and i just wanted to know your thoughts about this mod. Do you like it more than the original, my only problem with this is that the bottom of the bezel says "Macbook" not macbook air.
Recently, my Blackbook has had some troubles when I close the lid. What happens is the light never starts pulsing, and the laptop gets really warm and the fan goes crazy. When I open the lid, the screen stays black. When I reboot it, It shows the grey screen, goes black for a sec, then restarts. I tried reseting the pram, but it didnt help.
if there is an alternative to macbook batterys, meaning ones not made by apple and therefore cheaper. Also, i have not heard very good things about aple batteries, mainly that they just die out, is there any true to that?
