Jul 12, 2009

My 15" 2.8GHz mbp works fine (only had it for 2 days now) with the stock 500gb hitachi hdd. BUT if I try to install a hitachi travelstar 320gb 7200rpm 3.0 Gb/s hdd it freezes occasionally with the color wheel of death!

Apple :: Video Artifacts In Unibody After Nvidia Update 10.5.7

May 13, 2009

I updated to 10.5.7 and it runs quite well however I noticed a flaw of video flashing and I wanted to confirm this with others. In Stacks I use the Applications folder in list view. I have a long list of applications so I always have to scroll to go through all of them. When I use two finger scrolling to zip through them I see flashes of video artifacts while two finger scrolling. This only happens when you have enough apps in list view to require scrolling to see them all. For example, with no windows open I click the Applications folder and begin rapidly two finger scrolling through list view and I can see artifacts of the desktop flashing within the list view box. Anyone else notice this after the update? I have already reformatted and installed nothing but my basic apps and still see this.

Apple mentioned that they updated the Nvidia drivers for the unibody Macs. I have a Macbook Air.

Dell :: E4200 SSD Firmware Update?

Nov 13, 2009

I have an E4200 with the standard SSD. CrystalDiskInfo shows it as a Samsung SSD Thin uSATA 64GB M running firmware VAM05D1Q.

Seeing that Windows 7 has been out for a little while now and TRIM support is showing up on more and more SSDs, I was looking for a firmware update for my SSD. Anyone seen one?

Dell :: Philips SDVD8820 Firmware Update

Jan 3, 2010

So I am trying to update the firmware on the DVD drive that came with my e1705, the Philips SDVD8820 (Terrible drive I might add) but the new update (AD20) will NOT let me update it.

Anyone I try to run the executable it tells me.

FwFlash
You don't have administrator right to process.
or NO device is recognized.

I then tried to go to Run as... then chose the following user (selected myself again, w/ password this time) and I got the same error.

Once it loads up, it says

FwFlash3M v5.8
Update F/W to AD20
Can't recognize device!

Did some Google searches on the problem and came across this registry edit that seemed to solve the problem for a couple other people .....

Acer Aspire 5560g :: Failing To Boot After Firmware Update

Jan 28, 2015

So i recently upgraded my Aspire 5560g to Windows 8.1. I liked it but it seemed to have lost my drivers in the process (my track pad scrolling didnt work and my Dolby audio origram was gone).
 
I went to  for the drivers and decided to start with a firmware upgrade (9545 for hard disk performance). 
 
After the computer rebooted, I entered the dreaded Windows 8.1 boot loop. It would say "Your PC ran into problems..." with the bluescreen, then turn off. Then it would attempt the Automatic repair, and fail again, then restart the cycle.
 
I wasn't able to even get into my BIOS until I cleared my CMOS, now at least I can get into BIOS.
 
I created a bootable USB for Windows in hopes I could do a clean install, but even when trying to boot from a USB I get the blue Windows 8 screen, "Your PC ran into problems..."Is there a way I can undo the firmware update, it seems like the culprit, doesn't it? 
 
EDIT: I've read that the Windows boot loop may be caused by outdated drivers. Think this could be the problem after I did the firmware update? How can I install the drivers without being able to boot into Windows?

HP/Compaq :: CQ70-211EM: Cannot Install CDROM Driver After Firmware Update

Feb 28, 2010

Since updating the firmware on my LG drive (GSA-T50L) on every restart I get a message that Windows (Vista Home Basic) cannot install the driver. I click the second option, which is to "remind me later." I have to do this every time I boot up. The CD ROM is actually working OK as far as I can tell, but I'm still getting the error message. Device Manager doesn't list any driver, and trying to update it through device manager is unsuccessful.

I'm using firmware rev. SC05. I wondered if downgrading back to SC04 would cure the problem, but after hundreds of searches I cannot find the firmware anywhere on the Internet. Why it's so rare, I have no idea.

Maybe the problem has been caused by myself -- I deleted the drivers folder from the recovery partition some time ago to gain a couple of GB of drive space. However, I was under the impression that the CDROM uses Windows' own driver, so maybe this isn't the problem? I'm absolutely stumped. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this issue?

FWIW, I have recovery discs, only I'm unsure about using them because I don't want to wipe the entire system and start from scratch. If it's possible to restore only the missing drivers folder from the recovery partition this might be a good start.

Apple :: MB Unibody For A MBP 15

Oct 26, 2009

I have a Macbook Unibody, 2.0ghz, a 320gb 7200rpm (new hdd, it will arrive this week), and 4GB of DDR3 RAM.

He has a Macbook Pro (non-unibody), 2.5ghz, 5400rpm 250GB, 2GB DDR2 RAM.

BUT, his is a 15" little bit older model, non-unibody. But he dropped it ,the super drive is a little finicky because of it, but he did a SMART Test the harddrive is fine, and he bought a new bottom piece for it because the blemishes are bothering him. He has a 8600M GT, while i have a 9400M GT.

So, it's a trade between Unibody Macbook, 13.3 LED Screen, Huge trackpad, 2.0GHZ, 9400M GT, 4GB DDR3, 320GB 7200RPM 16MB HDD. (Battery is 100% using coconutbattery)

Macbook Pro 2008, 2.5Ghz, 5400RPM 250GB, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 8600M GT, 15.4 CCFL, non-huge (lol) trackpad. Super Drive is not working 100% capacity though.

But honestly, Im not too sure about the HDD because its been dropped,i mprly gonna replace it, and the super drive is broken. but he is including a new piece for the bottom.

Is the keyboard for the unibody MBP EXACTLY the same as the white macbook keyboards except for it being black? I thought on the apple website it said that the keys were curved a little bit which is not the case on the white mackbook.

Apple :: Unibody Macbook Pro 2.4 Or 2.53

Apr 4, 2009

I am currently saving up for a laptop and i first thought about the sony fw because of its high res screen and blu ray player along with the 2.66 processor. I dont use any really demanding software but would like to play a few games.

Im also looking at the macs beacuse they look amazing and have better build quality than sony...i think. will i notice any significant difference when web browsing/light gaming with the faster processor listed in the title. The ram is not an issue because i would upgrade it myself as its cheaper.Im also going to upgrade the hdd to a 7200rpm one.

Also what are the macbook pros viewing angles like for watching films, as my sister has a unibody macbook and its pretty bad for watching and films.

Apple :: Unibody MacBook - Which HDD To Get

Feb 5, 2009

I'm looking at upgrading the hard drive in my Unibody MacBook. I've been looking at 320GB and 500GB drives. I'm not really sure I need the 500GB, as the 160GB still has a bit of room left over with a 32GB Windows 7 install. But I'd like to increase the size of the Windows install.

Anyway, I was set on the Hitachi 7K320, but I've noticed that a lot of people were having issues with them in the unibody MBP. There weren't a lot of answers in the upgrade forum. So I'm here to see if any of you guys have had issues with the unibody MacBooks.

Also, I'd like to go ahead and get some suggestions for other drives that you guys have experience with. I'd like it to be a pretty good speed, so 7200 is preferable. However, I place more importance on noise and vibration. The Fujitsu 5400 rpm drive in the MacBook now is a little slow for my tastes, but acceptable. But I'd like a new drive to be at least as quiet. I've got a 100GB 7200RPM WD drive in my Dell that's really loud, and it gets annoying sometimes.

Apple :: MBP Unibody Fan Noise >.>

I've got 15" MBP (umm early 2009? has removable battery), and I was playing TF2 in windows XP the other day when it BSOD'. So I had to hard restart it, and go back into OS X. This is when I noticed a weird "growling or bumping" sound coming from the left fan which is kinda loud in a quite room. Its almost like a rattling sound.

Apple :: MBP Unibody Heat

Feb 15, 2010

I've had my MBP unibody 17 for almost a year now... it's been heating up for the past couple months (or longer?). I really haven't thought to talk about it until now.

Basically, my fans start to kick it quite often after just regular web browsing. It happens quite often if I start streaming a video or watching youtube. I don't have many apps open either. My laptop is in a cool place on hard surface that doesn't absorb heat easy either. I almost want to by a fan to put under it.

I installed SMC fan control and "fan control" since the beginning. I currently have fan control only.

Is there anything specific I can check that causes the laptop to heat up or if I messed with any "internal" settings by accident to cause it to heat up?

I almost want to think I to think it's something I downloaded or something I screwed up. My brother has the exact same computer and it runs around or under 50 all the time while running more programs than I do at times.

I'm just browsing right now with adium and and chrome running and it's running at 62 degrees.

Apple :: Unibody Design

Mar 23, 2010

The aluminum unibody design has been here for a while. With probably the most significant running change being the closing up of the battery compartment so that user change-over is limited to a surgical, versus an on-the-fly service issue.

Do you think that this design is here to stay for awhile in the MackBook (pros), the next couple of updates anyway?

Or do you think it is just a trend that will yield to some other trend to catch the fancy of fickle consumer whims for something new, for newness sake? (back to lightweight plastic, perhaps). I'm sure the apple marketing machine can spin polycarbonate another life as a "space-age miracle of modern science", or some-such blather. The base MacBook notwithstanding, of course.
