- Hi, I have an original first-generation DS exactly like the one in the photo, except the hinge on the right hand side underne...
- You might want to try connecting the iPod to your computer and opening up iTunes, and then using that to restore your iPod. This restores your iPod to a factory condition, i.e. the condition it was when it left the factory. Be aware though that this will wipe your iPod's contents completely.
- You could try using a different pair and see if they work.
- If your MacBook has the slots free you could also add more RAM if you wish. I know in my '09 MacBook it has 2GB RAM but you can add up to 2GB extra.
- Is there another computer you can perhaps try your AC adaptor on, just to see if it's a problem with the AC adaptor rather than something on your laptop? It might be something to try.
- Well if the fan is spinning faster just under normal use, it's going to make more noise, even if there is no wear and tear/damage. Often the fans on laptops are either located on the side of the bottom part of the computer (where the keyboard is) or between the screen and keyboard; I would imagine it wouldn't be too hard to disassemble but the trick is putting everything back together properly! If the fan's making rattling noises or it's always making a noise even when the laptop is colder (such as when you first boot) then it's probably damaged somewhere. Not sure if this helps...I don't really know much about your particular computer. Apologies for the long post.
- While you get the keys on your built-in keyboard on your laptop sorted, you could perhaps attach an external keyboard if you have one to your computer, and complete your project that way. Good luck.
- You might find this article here on iFixit useful if you're going to replace the top LCD screen. Hope you can resolve your problem.
- I looked in the tech specs section for the original iPhone on Apple's site (http://support.apple.com/kb/SP2) and found that it needs Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later and iTunes 7.5 or later to work, so it doesn't look like it'll work with your system. Perhaps you can upgrade your Panther Mac. Sorry about that but I hope this was useful.
- You can usually check what kind of charge your iPod has from looking at the colour of the light when you turn it on. Yellow is medium charge, green is fully charged I think whereas red is almost 'flat'. It tells you about this in the little book that comes in the box, if that helps.
- Try shutting down the computer, let it cool down, reboot and then try again.
