- I have a 15" MacBook Pro that I received as a gift, but I need to upgrade the RAM (no retina display). Apple Website says it ...
- The Lens is not an interchangeable part between blurry and Std DVD. If you want Blu ray accessibility and assuming your referring to a Windows machine. The best option is to buy an external blu ray drive. They are designed specifically for external use and have the drivers for the OS, they also are reasonably inexpensive compared to a few years ago. If you are using an Apple or Linux you will need to check the drive manufacturer to ensure they support your OS with corresponding drivers before you buy.
- Also it depends on the year of your VUE. Some models the wiper assembly just snaps out. In other model years The wiper arm uses a reverse J to attach to the wiper blade. For the reverse J: pull the arm of the wiper away from the glass. as you twist the wiper blade you will see the underside of the J arm. the bottom of the J is pushed up through the wiper blade assembly and a plastic retainer can be removed. once removed the blade comes off.
- If the HP drive is still functional you should be able to put the old Sony drive in a external drive dock. Then reformat the drive use the "zero out" function to do this. Next it depends on if you have the recovery disks your HP came with. If not you should try to contact HP to see if they can supply a set. As your Hardware should have the windows License attached to it, there would not be a need to repurchase windows again. If HP doesn't or isn't able to supply the recovery disks and you don't have them you will need to go to HP's website download all the drivers for your equipment and contact Microsoft to obtain a copy of the windows installer CD. If not then you can always use software to clone the old HP drive if it is still functional and copy it to the new sony drive (after formatting, don't want any rogue data bits causing headaches later) If the HP drive has died and you don't and can't get the HP recovery disks you will then need to get a fresh license of windows, not an upgrade. Unfortunately, this ...
- Now I see.. The voltage is of the memory is 1.5v rather than 1.35v.... Even though everything else is the same apparently that voltage different is causing the problems.
- You stated you can't install OSX but have windows installed. When you installed Windows did you use boot camp to do it? Normally you install OSX and then use boot camp to create the windows partition to install win 7 etc on. If you have multiple partitions you can hold down the alt key during boot up to select which partition you want to boot from.
- If you talking about the wifi switch above the keyboard ensure you don't have wireless (or the device) disabled in the control panel or hardware control.
- If you connect an external keyboard do all the keys work properly on the external keyboard? Also if you have installed any keyboard routine programs (butler, quicksilver, etc) they may be impacting. Do you have a clean profile to check for corruption?
- If you look closely at the display (maybe at an angle) you may be able to see a slight image (like a shadow) if so your backlight has failed and would need replacement.
- GPS uses a lot of battery. Depending on the car adapter it may not be generating more than it's using. Also I agree that if the battery has been run dead too often it will cause the battery to charge more slowly~or at all.
- Since this is a B/G Router with DSL gateway if you obtained the device from your internet provider, have you contacted them. It may be possible that a firmware update is available. Some other things that can affect performance are: Any new wireless devices (like cordless phone, microwave, plasma TV) in the general area of the router. (I had this problem with a past dlink router, the wireless handset would be out of the cradle and kick off the router signal) Also, if you have only Wireless G devices set the router to only communicate in wireless G. You can also try changing the wireless channel. More details on what can cause problems with ADSL Gateways are on the linksys website. Here The last thing you could do is check to see if another firmware would work in your router (like tomato firmware) Hope this helps.

Nice to know it can be upgraded to 4TB
When removing the sensor be careful to get underneath the adhesive (IE: keep as much adhesive on the sensor) It allowed me to just stick the sensor to the new hard drive (clean the new drive area with alcohol and allow to dry to promote adhesion) Don't get the sensor dirty with the dust etc from inside the mac, the dirt would make new adhesive necessary.
If you remove the inverter wires after dealing with the EM shield you can flip the display without detaching the LCD data cable. Use the foot of the iMac (with a towel to protect the display) to hold the display while you work inside.
Quote from mindzeebeez:
This is tricky and took some time and patience. It is best to have some foil tape handy because the EMF shield tears easily. Likewise when reinstalling the screen and EMF shield, it helps to have a partner who can stop the foil to the side of the screen from getting folded under the screen when you lower it back into position, ready to tape it back onto the edge of the screen.
I found that using the plastic card to remove the cover worked well in lifting the EM tape from the screen. Also step 10 & 11 appear to be reversed since you can't get to the screws until you have lifted up the display (this can only occur once you have dealt with the EM shield)
Quote from Bob:
I didn't see the need to tape the foil to the display (and I didn't want to get any sticky residue on the screen), so I skipped this bit with no problems.
I agree, and tape doesn't stick to the screen (I tried and the tape came loose before I was done)
