Apple :: MacBook Pro - Battery Life - Fingerprints - Driver Support

Jan 11, 2009

After seeing how awesome the Education discount is, I've decided I will definitely go after a MacBook Pro 17 if I can get this shoddy Acer returned. What attracts me is the thinness, design, keyboard, screen, weight and basically everything except the price. Everything about it screams quality, even the notorious glossy screen which I kinda like.

I have some questions about the MacBook Pros and Mac OSX in general.

1. Is the 8 Hour Battery Life for real? I know that this is some "revolutionary" new thing, but honestly I can't believe something with a WUXGA screen could go for so long.

2. Does Aluminum scratch easily? How about fingerprints?

3. (Applies to all MacBook Pros) Does the hinge of the lid creak or wobble when opening or closing the laptop?

4. Is Leopard 32 bit or 64 bit? Or is it default 64 bit? I can't see any mention of that in the configuration page.

5. How about driver support? I have a Razer Copperhead, Piranha and am ordering a Mamba and it would be a shame if they were not compatible with the OS.

6. Does Parallels or VMWare lag at all when running XP? Or is it the same experience, with no slow down? How about Boot Camp?

Sony :: 1 Year Old Vgn-fw180d Windows 7, Whats This No Driver Support

Oct 22, 2009

I went to check out the sony esupport website for my model number to see if sony put official drivers for Windows 7.

What I get on the support page is

"The hardware configuration of this model does not meet the minimum system requirements needed to run and provide the full experience of the Windowsģ 7 operating system.

Windowsģ 7 installation is not recommended and Sony will not be providing Windowsģ 7 drivers for this model.

* Have another question?

Windowsģ 7 provides great new features to enhance your computing experience.

Visit our online store SonyStyleģ where you can choose from a wide variety of VAIO computers that come with Windowsģ 7 preinstalled. "

What is this? A laptop I bought a year ago with duo cpu p8600 @2.40GHz and 4 GB ram. Will not run windows 7 adequately? Thats funny because I have been running Windows 7 since the early betas and currently run the 64bit RC.

Apple :: Windows OS Beating OS X - Japanese Language Support

May 6, 2010

I bought a new Mac just yesterday (my first time to switch from PC) believing that the East Asian Support in Macs will be equally if not better in OS X than Windows (given that Japan is a huge market for Macs and also that you can even order a Japanese keyboard when purchasing your computer). To my horror, however, I am now realizing that there's a feature where Windows outpeforms OS X, or what OS Xi is totally lacking;

IME Pad - i.e. in Windows when you switch to Japanese language keyboard you have an option to use your mouse to draw a kanji you are not familiar with (don't know its reading). You'll get a lit of options and can find thus a kanji extremely fast - no need for radical or stoke look-up. I've heard that OS X doesn't have this function - at least not 10.5. If that's true this would be a major drawback!

the only solution to this would be to use an internet interface such as this:
Handwritten kanji search at sljfaq.org
But this is way too cumbersome and requires internet access.
how to use Japanese on Macs can respond.

Apple :: Macbook - Driver Quality For Windows

Jul 1, 2009

I bought a macbook before they upgraded the 13" into macbook pro and had some driver issues with windows, the screen flickered on windows which was very annoying so I returned it, is there any improvement in the new refresh, i heard they have better screens?

Is the screen quality on the 15" better than the 13" ignoring the resolution
I am willing to pay up to 3000$ but I can't justify the price differences, as we all agree apple screws the customers when it comes to small hardware improvements

Lenovo Z40-70 P/Y/Z Series :: Intel VGA Driver From Downloads Support Page Is Not Working

Jan 20, 2015

just got a Z40-70 59436180 w/ nvidia geforce and installed it with windows 7 (32 bit),the nvidia vga driver setup told me that i have to install intel vga driver first before installing the nvidia one..
 
the problem is i can't install the intel vga driver which i got from the lenovo download support page (the filename is "ivg200w732.exe"),when i run it, it says something like my computer doesn't have the minimum requirements for the driver to install..well it looks like it is the wrong driver, because when i explore the installation directory, i found a "x64"-named directory... and no "x86" or "32bit" or anything similar...

Apple :: No PhysX Support On 9600MGT

Jan 15, 2009

I just bought Mirror's Edge and I've installed it, but when I go to enable PhysX the game tells me that hardware acceleration is not supported by my system. I thought this card supported PhysX? For reference I tried using both the stock Apple boot camp drivers and the new official beta 179.28 from Nvidia.

Apple :: East Asian Language Support In OS X

May 5, 2010

I work with Japanese language and need to use the East Asian language support that Windows provides. Is there anything similar in OS X? This is a really important think to me. by support, I don't just mean the fonts, but the whole keyboard + IME - writing characters and their recognition. All this is part of Windows East Asian support and works great for me.

HP Envy Dv7-7338ea Recovery :: Notebook PC Driver Support After Recovery?

Aug 23, 2014

My laptop was beginning to slow down so I've done a reinstall of windows and wiped my SSD clean (I replaced the original HDD with an SSD a while back).
 
Because of this I've not got a backup partition containing my drivers.
 
My fingerprint sensor has stopped working.  It says an error has occured whenever I try to use it even though my fingerprint was saved in my user accounts as a sign in option.
 
Where do I get the driver for this?
 
Also, I now no longer have HP Recovery Manager that had all of the drivers.  Where can I download this?
 
PS.  I've downloaded all the drivers on the HP website associated with my laptop here Laptop Drivers
 
These are the only two things that no longer work and it would be handy to get them sorted.

Apple :: Can A Black Macbook Support A 4GB Ram Stick, In One Slot

Jul 1, 2009

I have a Blackbook 2.4, with 2gb of ram. Right now I don't have the stock ram, my friend took it when he sold it to me, there's some random mis-matched slow 2x1GB sticks of stuff in there, I can buy a 4GB stick (800MHz) off of another buddy soon for 100 kuai ($14), I was wondering, I know OSX will only take 4GB or whatever, and that the book wont support more than 4GB, but will ONE slot support, and fully utilize the 4GB stick?

I only need this computer for another month before I buy a new MBP, so I don't want to spend any actual money on Ram, I'm doing semi-ok with 2gb.

Apple :: NVidia 179.48 Beta Drivers Now Support 9400M

Feb 11, 2009

I know that the modded INFs from laptopvideo2go have supported this, but the latest beta drivers released today from nVidia actually support the 9400M out of the box.

These drivers support the screen brightness controls (I had probs with this using the modded drivers) AND more importantly I can now use an external monitor and resume from sleep mode. The Apple drivers would not resume after the video card turned the external monitor off.

Apple :: Limited GPU Support For OpenCL And H.264 Acceleration In Snow Leopard

Jun 8, 2009

[url]

If you check Apple's Snow Leopards specs the following GPUs are supported for OpenCL and h.264:

Quote:

QuickTime H.264 hardware acceleration
requires a Mac with a NVIDIA 9400M graphics processor.

OpenCL
NVIDIA Geforce 8600M GT, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GTS, Geforce 9400M, GeForce 9600M GT, GeForce GT 120, GeForce GT 130.
ATI Radeon 4850, Radeon 4870

The most glaring omission for OpenCL is for desktops with ATI GPUs, namely the HD 2400XT, HD 2600Pro, HD2600XT, and HD3870. Now it's not like these GPUs can't support GPGPU operation since they already do so in Windows under ATI's own CTM and Brook+ language.

ATI's OpenCL drivers for Windows should be available soon, they were promised for H1, and if it turns out the HD2xxx and HD3xxx series is capable of supporting OpenCL but only in Windows and not OS X it'd be very disappointing. Somehow I don't think Apple envisions iMac users having to use Boot Camp to use OpenCL accelerated apps.............

HP Mini 210 Display :: Support For Windows 8?

Aug 3, 2012

As an experiment I just installed WIN8 on my HP210 Mini. It seems to work just fine, except for the apps. WIN warns me that they cannot run because they require a resolution of 1060*768 wheras the original driver for the HP210 only supports up to 1060*600.
 
Question: is there a way to cope with this problem and get the apps working?

Apple :: 2010 13" MBP 2.4GHz. No Support For 3rd Party SSD Under Boot Camp

Apr 15, 2010

All those who have a 2010 MBP and a 3rd party SSD, please try setting up bootcamp and let us know if it works.

Has anyone successfully setup bootcamp on any of the new macbook pros? When I use boot camp assistant, I am able to set up the partitions. However, once I enter the windows 7 install, it doesn't detect any partitions at all (not even my mac partition).

I've tried both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7 (home, prof, and ultimate). The SSD is an Intel X25-V 40GB

UPDATE 1: Swapped the stock HDD back in and bootcamp install seems to work fine. Partitions were immediately recognized by my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. Could Apple have blocked support for 3rd party SSDs somehow with these 2010 MBPs?

Dell :: Windows 7 32 And 64 Bit Drivers For 1640 Now Available On Support

Aug 19, 2009

I was just checking for drivers for my 1640 (I recently re-installed Windows 7 RC 64 bit) and lo and behold, Dell is now showing 32 and 64 bit Windows 7 operating system choices for the drivers...
The available drivers you see when choosing 64 bit Windows 7 are certainly not all there by a long shot and most of them appear to be the same as the Vista drivers but it is at least a promising sign! The new Quickset driver appears to be specifically for Windows 7.

Sony :: Petition For Support Of The Windows 7 Upgrade For Your Model

Oct 22, 2009

I have a FZ280 E/B. I spent over $1800 on it 2 years ago. Sony is not providing support for the upgrade. Not only are they stating they won't upgrade they offer us the opportunity to buy a new notebook that will support the OS. How nice is that?

I don't know if we have any recourse here. I have already sent a scathing email to Sony support. I will continue to do so until I hear a response I like. I've been a life long Sony supporter/customer. Unless this is resolved that will stop. If anyone has any ideas feel free to chime in.

I realize we may be powerless here but I know I don't enjoy being screwed continually by Sony. They know Vista was terrible and didn't offer the 'downgrade' to XP option for our model. Now the 'better' (remains to be seen yet) OS comes out and they won't support that either.

Apple :: Installing XP With ACPI Uniprocessor Driver

May 3, 2009

I have 3 old games that run super fast in XP, and I've read that a common fix seems to be running in Uniprocessor mode. XP only installs the ACPI Multiprocessor driver, and I can't change it. I can only select ACPI Multiprocessor, or Standard PC, and when I changed it to Standard PC I lost my keyboard and mouse (and subsequently had to reinstall XP).

Is there any way to either tell Bootcamp to disable one core, or to install XP with the Uniprocessor driver?

I'm running the early 2009 white macbook, and XP Home SP3.
