    Your camera was introduced in 2007, and its CameraWindow software last updated at the end of 2017. It's unpredictable wether Canon will update their software for 64 bit compatibility, and if so when....

    The keycaps on the 2017 MBA are similar to previous models. They use a cantilever mechanism that locates into clips under the keycap. They are not like the horrible MBP butterfly mechanism keys. When...

    I have installed Crucial SATA 6gbs SSD's multiple times in both the 2011 MBP 13" and 15" with no issues, that is all we fit at work. I can't speak for other brands. I have seen MBP 2011's running ok...

    As far as I'm aware Power Photo's is currently the only way.
  5. It's a long time since I worked on that display,...

    It's a long time since I worked on that display, but the information above is likely correct. Without a suitable Mac, OS and screen software you are unfortunately lost.
  6. There is only one hard drive cable, used in both...

    There is only one hard drive cable, used in both the early and late 2011 MBP 15". It functions normally with 5400rpm, 7200rpm drives and SSD's. The HD cable on your MBP is usually very reliable...

    There is one USB Lion installer that Apple used to supply with some kit, a custom thin white device, and it could be bought separately. The one I sometimes use at work surprisingly wasn't affected by...

    The M1212 trinitron 14" display is a fixed frequency monitor, even with an adapter converting its D connector to VGA it will not sync up to the VGA standard.

    You can only probe the logic board end of the MagSafe board cable. Disconnect the black plug, flip it over to show the barbs of the pins through the side of the connector, and probe the pins with a...

    You did not license the Microsoft Office, if you want it your only solution is to purchase it.

    If you need an office application, but without Outlook, investigate Libreoffice, its free. Home |...

    Catalina would have split the drive into 2 volumes, and this can't be resolved with disk utility.

    You have to use terminal to create a single volume before installing Mojave as follows.

    Based upon your photo and fault description the GPU has failed. It's a vintage product, and even if parts had been available an exchange logic board wouldn't have been viable. The AASP cost from...
  13. Agreed, this is one of the symptoms of the logic...

    Agreed, this is one of the symptoms of the logic board GPU failure. It's certainly worth removing the HD and attaching to another Mac, you could be lucky.
  14. The powdery green and white 'corrosion' I...

    The powdery green and white 'corrosion' I regularly see on liquid damaged logic boards shouldn't spread unless the PCB is still wet, but it can damage the circuitry under it. The 4 TB3 touch bar...

    Yes, in many cases I've had unibody MacBook Pro's batteries swell pushing off the base, and the countersunk heads of screws rip through the base, yet the battery passes Apple's MRI diagnostic.
  17. I bet you'll find the only fiddly part was...

    I bet you'll find the only fiddly part was applying new double sided tape to the black plastic clip and foam pad that held the temp sensor to the HD. Due to the iMac's age and value you had nothing...

    Trackpad clickers commonly fail on older MacBook Pro's, but my experience with MacBook's is they are very good. I do find if a short base screw from the 2 front centre has been replaced by a longer...

    I usually disconnect circuitry that isn't essential to the MBA booting up, then attempt to boot from a known good external USB device. Disconnect the camera connector, AP/BT card and SSD. The I/O...

    Unibody MacBook Pro hard drives use 4 x Torx T6 headed studs. Hope you haven't chewed them up. The logic board and fan screws are also T6.

    I find light dust doesn't cause noticeable issues, but fluff does. It can build up as a semi solid layer around 4mm thick between rear of a fan and the heatsink. Carefully remove the fans to check...

    The most common problem I see at work with the 21.5" iMac specified in this thread is running slow. To beef them up requires the HD replacing with an SSD, and in many cases the memory upgraded to...

    What Mac do you have, would be easier if you had a MBP unibody, then you could have simply installed the 2TB SSD in it to test, not really practicable if an iMac or a newer MBP. Otherwise obtaining...

    I use and would recommend Carbon Copy Cloner. Unless you intend to use it regularly, the trial period will do what you want.
