If the system has been on battery at any point of the session, color calibration seems to mess itself up according to what's on screen. If darker colors dominate the screen, the colors slowly (but visibly) go all weird. When there's mostly white content on screen, it returns to normal.
I've been browsing some power management settings and none of them seems to relate to this. The system is W520 with FHD screen, Intel 22.214.171.1248 drivers, Nvidia 332.21 drivers, Windows 7. This does not occur in Ubuntu, nor on an external monitor.
I started to have a little issue with my LCD..Sometimes when I touch it on the top of the screen( where is webcam) or when I change the angle of the screen, the screen change to this error (greeen color is "error color"):
I have a Dell Latitude D620 and lately the screen has been doing weird things. The images will show up pixelated or of a low quality. I plugged my monitor into the VGA port at the back and it shows up fine on my monitor. I just want to know if it's the video card or screen before I buy a new screen.
I'd like to encrypt my entire hard drive in this MBP. I use Time Machine, though -- and my understanding is that FileVault (a) is exploitable, and (b) requires that users be logged out for backups to occur. Both of those are big problems for me.
Behind that, the easiest way to encrypt things that really, truly should be protected somehow is to use Disk Utility to create a protected image, or such is my assumption. From what I understand, a .dmg can be converted to ISO within Windows (or opened with 7-zip). Is it at all possible for an encrypted .dmg to be converted/opened under Windows?
I ask because I'm not convinced I won't be on a Windows 7 notebook at some point, especially with updated HP Envy and Sony Vaio models coming. Could be wrong, but I like flexibility.
(I know that TrueCrypt serves a similar function to encrypted .dmg files via Disk Utility and is cross-platform, but still.)
I got a mid 2009 MBP last week, I decided to calibrate its battery based on apple instruction, I charged it fully, after 2 hours I disconnected it for complete discharging, but I left my MBP and it went to sleep for 10 minutes, I turn it on again and finished calibration process, Is it necessary to re-calibrate it because of that 10 MINs sleeping?
i havn't used my DvD burner in aprox 3 month's and it was working fine with Nero 7 Premium. i have just atempted to burn a dvd when that error come up "Power Calibration Error" the dvd burner that i have is Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-845S. i don't know what to do. i am running a Aspire 5672WLMI
I recently purchased a dv4-1275mx special edition, and would like to calibrate the battery. The battery is suppose to last up to 6 hours (I'm expecting about 4-4.5). Does it screw up the calibration if I am using it while letting the battery run down. I have the screen turn off disabled and the sleep disabled, but I am using a screen saver.
I was incidentally looking for some calibration tips for my Unibody Macbook Pro (late 2008) and I figured, why not set up a thread in which we can actually share our calibration profiles...
I've got the 9C84 which is the LG/Philips LP154WP3-TLA1 as far as Google says.
You can check your display manufacturer in System Preferences click Displays, go to Color tab and "Open Profile". In this list scroll down to number 17 which is "Apple display make and model information".
This is what Google says: 9C84 = LG/Philips LP154WP3-TLA1 (15" MacBook Pro) 9C85 = Chi Mei N154C6-L04 (15" MacBook Pro) 9C89 = LG/Philips LP133WX2 (MacBook UniBody)
Don't know about the Air, sorry.
There are quite a few people sharing their calibrations on Macrumors and other forums, I've tried some of them and frankly, they're either too blue or too bright...........
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?
I have HP Pavilion, Model No. 15-n020AX. I installed win8.1. Initially web cam was working properly. But suddenly its setting got changed and the picture is coming like any image without contrast (very Greeny). I trued several time to install and uninstall. Drivers are updated, it shows in Device manager.
I recently bought aÂ Lenovo Flex 2-15 (Intel Core i5-4210U, 8GBÂ RAM) and have had troubles with browsing pretty much ever since (though it got worse in the last few days). I can't access GMail (stuckÂ withÂ "Loading..."), images load incompletely (some don't show up, missing parts in others etc), songs on Hypem only load the first two or three seconds instead of the whole song - and the list goes on.
I usually use Chrome but I've tried Firefox and Internet Explorer - and the problems persists. How to enjoy browsing again? This situation is unbearable. I recently even switched to my smartphone for browsing and writing emails.
I have an Acer Aspire 5634WLMi with 2 years. Got a problem on the monitor (15.4-inch LCD CrystalBite).
It slowly started a year ago (at that time still had warranty but underestimated the problem and now it expired). In all the black images(movies, photos) began to appear some green fluorescent dots that looks like they are living (in English I think is called flickering spots, jaggies?!) which then disappear and come back. I did not care at first because both appeared to disappear. Over time there have appeared more, followed by purple dots now. These purple dots are never in black image but sometimes they are the shadow of the black image. But in videos with very dark black only come green dots (always flickering). In all the other colors there is no problem, for example I am writing this in Word and the blue and white of this image is not green. It is however in my opinion a little blurry, I do not know. The letters are black (with a slight green Halo) but it seems that they aren’t standing still and shake a little. The most strange is that on the desktop there is a pattern of green dots on the bottom left and a purple on the upper corner that are often there but sometimes also move around. In fact there was not so long ago a time when I got a perfect image. I began to think that the laptop went to very warm, open a part, cleaned the fan and reduce the processor speed by changing the temperature of the device. After a while it disappeared. But this improvement lasted only 1 day. Then it began all over again. I have also tried to connect the computer to another monitor and had a perfect image, so it seems that it is not the graphics. On the Internet I found many of these reports that the cable that goes from the graphicscard to the monitor is damaged and that a simple substitution leads to full restoration of the notebook. Anyway before attempting to open the laptop (I've been watching some videos of how to do) like to have another opinion from someone who realizes this. I already took him ah repair but wanted 250 euro to replace the monitor with dead pixels (which I think is wrong they are not all dead, and until very squiggly and alternate location). For 250euros rather buy a new though economically not good for me. When the computer has a completely black image is all green. For example when the screensaver comes with the ball moving from one place to another.
At the top of the screen, images look darker and crisper and at the bottom they look more bright and less detail.
Here's an example of an icon that should look the same, but it looks distinctly different (and it's not the camera exposure -- what you see is more or less how it is). Should I return the machine and get another? Do you think Apple will even consider it an issue if I wanted to get it replaced? Do you guys have the same thing? I only noticed when I had a lot of the same icon scattered on my desktop and the same icon looks noticeably different. Of course, I am always the person to notice anything about electronics whereas other people would never have so much as a clue. even though the video files are what got me seeing that things are different, you can kind of see it with the folder icons as well.
For some reason the brightness on my lcd isn't adjustable. It's stuck at full brightness, on battery, on power, doesn't matter. I've had this laptop for about 2 weeks now. When I first got it, the brightness levels were working, but now they are not. OS is Windows 7 Home.
FN - Brightness Down brings up a on screen display showing the brightness level at full and goes down by about 1, though I see no different in the brightness. It doesn't matter how many times I press the button, it never goes down more than 1.
Control Panel -> Display -> Adjust Brightness -> Power Options: The slider at the bottom shows the brightness level at lowest setting. The FN - Brightness adjustment will move this slider up / down on the scale, but there is no change in the screen brightness.
Anyone have any ideas as to why I can not adjust the brightness and how I can get it back to where I can adjust it?
I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 1525 1.86 ghz laptop 3 days ago. I noticed that around bright lights in my room, its monitor is not displaying crisp and clear pictures. How can I adjust the monitor's picture and contrast? Many thanks.
