    Sold a refurbished 15" mid-2012 MBP to a customer and he's complaining that the volume is substantially quieter than his previous 17" 2009 model. He lives over an hour away so I haven't gotten a...

    Display not working after swap

    Someone brought me a pair of identical 2010 MacBook Pro notebooks for a display swap. I powered on the unit with the donor screen to verify it was functional before disassembly, but after the swap I...

    Well it seems I've made some progress. Haven't gotten around to opening it up to inspect the lid sensor... but after turning off File Vault, the backlight now comes on when the loading bar gets...

    Well no more kernel panics after re-installing the OS and it looks like the backlight comes on if I close and open the lid at the alt/option boot (hadn't tried this before, so maybe it would have...
  5. MBP 2015 backlight issues after replacing display

    Just replaced a damaged display assembly for an early 2015 MacBook Pro and the backlight doesn't come on unless I boot into recovery mode or close and re-open the lid after the OS has booted (but...

    Activity Monitor shows kernel_task overloading the CPU, but this process cannot be force quit as it would cause a kernel panic. Same problem when booting the USB installer but totally fine booting...

    I've tested the SSD with my iMac (connected via USB) and a near-identical MacBook (connected internally). No problems at all, everything is very snappy. Booting this computer from the USB installer...

    Please refer to my original post. CPU power is being drained by kernel_task which cannot be terminated because it is (essentially) the operating system itself.

    This machine is probably a lost...

    Sadly no difference after resetting the PRAM and SMC.

    SSD is only 2 years old and plenty of free disk space, but just to rule it out I booted my iMac off it via USB. Runs just fine and disk check...

    Fixing a late 2011 MBP for a friend that is difficult to power on and runs like molasses. I have to hold the power button until immediately after the startup chime, releasing any earlier or later...

    Finally made some progress! Swapped the original logic board in to see if it would output video thru Thunderbolt -- keep in mind I didn't have a miniDP to HDMI adapter when I got the computer. Much...

    It's not the adapter because native ultrawide resolution works fine in Mac OS, just not Windows. I did try it with my own DP to HDMI adapter for the sake of science but same results. It's gotta be a...
  13. Thunderbolt to DVI adapter with DVI to HDMI...

    Thunderbolt to DVI adapter with DVI to HDMI cable. Mac OS was apparently having the same resolution issue with Thunderbolt to HDMI.
  14. Ultrawide resolution in Windows on iMac 2011

    My friend is dual booting on a 2011 iMac with an LG ultrawide monitor connected. Native resolution is 2560x1080 and works fine in Mac OS but only goes up to 1920x1080 in Windows (7 x64). Boot Camp is...

    Indeed they are, so hard to see though... I don't think it could be the LVDS connector, as the original board had bent pins but would still power on if the display was unplugged. Regardless,...

    iMac A1311 mid-2011 no video

    Trying to resurrect an iMac that I picked up from the recycle pile of a local computer repair shop. I replaced the original board, which has a damaged LVDS video connector. Replacement was giving SOS...

    I meant to post specs, this one is actually a mid-2011 Thunderbolt model: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac-core-i5-2.7-21-inch-aluminum-mid-2011-thunderbolt-specs.html

    Got a little more info on the iMac. The LVDS display connector on the logic board was damaged by an inexperienced technician, which explains why the cable has to be unplugged for the computer to...
  19. iMac A1311 won't power on with display plugged in

    I recently acquired an old iMac that I am hoping to fix up and use for video editing. I don't know the history of the machine presently. It won't power on with the display cable plugged in. The...

    I should have mentioned the replacement keyboard was pulled from a parts machine that looks identical but is a slightly different model (A1260 / EMC 2136 and I can't find it on EveryMac). The new one...
  21. Keyboard and touchpad don't work in Windows after replacment

    Replaced the top case of my friend's old MacBook Pro (A1226) and now the keyboard and touchpad don't work in Windows XP (totally fine in Mac OS). I have tried manually installing different versions...

    Unresponsive hard drives

    I've been having some issues with the Mac Pro (A1289) I use at work for video editing. Every so often, one or more of the external hard drives will become unresponsive and appear empty, requiring a...

    Model number is in the thread title, but to be more specific: MBP 2.26GHz A1278
    I will definitely do more tests to rule out a bad slot. EveryMac says it will take 8GB but I have seen several other...

    I pulled one of the RAM sticks and managed to get the OS installed with it running on battery. Works fine with a known good charger as well. I got kernel panics again with both RAM sticks installed.
