I have a late 2016 MacBook Pro running the latest version of OS X Sierra 10.12.6 Ever since I got it, I've been having a problem connecting it to external displays. Firstly, there is the 32" 4K Seiki Pro, connected via a USB-C cable. Most times when the Mac goes to sleep, the display does not come back until I put the computer back to sleep and wake it up, and *then* connect the cable when it's woken. Apple Support says this is a known bug but there is not currently a fix. Then there is the LG UltraFine 5K …

Hello, I have a Macbook Pro w/ Retina display (A1502), running Win 7 on bootcamp. I also have 2 [LG 25UM64](https://www.google.com/shopping/product/264296052983113163) monitors. The optimal resolution for these monitors is 2560x1080. However, so far as I can tell I can only hit this resolution if I'm connected through HDMI, for which the MBPro only has one port. The thunderbolt ports won't go past 1920x1080, and I tried an HDMI to USB adapter without any luck. I'm wondering if there's a way to get this second monitor to go to full resolution. Hoping someone knows how. Thanks! -EF

Hi, I'm running a mid/late 2007 Macbook Pro with Mavericks: [Click Here](http://everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-2-duo-2.4-15-santa-rosa-specs.html) When I connect a second display the cpu temp goes through the roof, 90C with the fans at max. When I disconnect the screen the temperature comes down. Temperature Monitor shows that it's the CPU's not the GPU that are getting hot. I've looked in Activity Monitor and there's nothing taking up a large amount of CPU that would seem to be causing this. I've cleaned out the Mac in the last 5 months so I doubt it's a dust build up problem. Any help would be greatly …

Hello After I could not boot my Macbook Pro (OS X Lion 10.7.5) I tried to run safe boot. I thought it worked, but only thing it did was booting the mac without any data i used to have. All the software is there. It's like a brand new mac with full applications. My storage seems as full as before so I know the data is somewhere inside my Macbook. How can I find them? (I'm still logged in as I always were and there seems to be no other accounts)

Hi everyone. I am trying to help a friend with her macbook which faces a mysterious problem. The macbook cannot access certain sites like facebook and pinterest when my friend uses her home wifi connection. The problem appears both on safari and chrome. When she came to my home using my wifi router both sites loaded perfectly so i assumed It was just a random problem. When she went back to hers, it happened again. Sometimes the browser will pop a certificate error message and oher times just a blank page not loading anything. The strange thing is that it …

Apple hacking PWN2OWN supremo and security researcher Charlie Miller is preparing to reveal just how to hack an Apple MacBook battery. Yep, you read that right: Apple battery hacking could be coming to a MacBook near you soon. Well, near you if you happen to be in Las Vegas for the annual Black Hat conference in August that is. Otherwise, DaniWeb suspects you probably won't see any such thing. Miller, the principal research consultant with Accuvant Labs, says he will demonstrate how to reverse engineer both the MacBook embedded controller (that controls battery charging) firmware and the firmware flashing process …

I have a Seagate 500GB external hard drive that has been put in a new casing after some wires in the original came loose. I only got it back two days ago. So today I plugged it into my macbook and everything was fine, and then suddenly the warning/error window pops up saying that it's not been ejected safely. I hadn't touched the acutal hard drive or the wire or anything.

Hi there, I am having quite an upsetting problem with a new monitor I have bought and wonder if anyone can help me out. I do graphics work and so I needed to purchase a larger monitor because I was killing my eyes on the 13inch new MacBook screen.

Very good reviews, reliable brand, etc. Somehow it didn't come with a DVI-D cable so had to purchase it. Purchased a 5m cable, thought this was the norm and plugged it in. The monitor was going …

Hello Mac users, I'm trying to hook up my husbands dell printer with my mac. We have two printers in our office and it's crowded. I wanted to get rid of my hp printer, the two printers are about the same. I can't figure out this printer driver thing. I know Dell printers are Lexmark. I tried to find out which Lexmark is the same as the Dell 926, but nothings working. I tired the Linux website and GimpPrint. If anyone knows anything else I can try, please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Guys, I wanted to get some feedback on what the community thought about this: I am a web developer who needs something that is portable, and powerful. The air seems to be perfect for what I need. However, all the people I have talked to has said go with the pro. What are the pros and cons to the mac book air, vs the mac book pro. I am not a gamer, nor do I want to be... I am a hard core php developer who wants fast web dev tools. So what is the verdict? :)

I am something of a Windows fanboy I guess, and will make no bones about the fact that I have always thought of the 13" Apple MacBook Pro in the same way that I have about Military Intelligence, European Community and Advanced BASIC: it's an oxymoron. Given that the smallest of the MacBook Pro range has often been outperformed by non-Pro labelled Macs, not to mention the non-Apple competition, I was almost expecting Apple to see the folly of its ways and scrap the damn thing altogether. And I was half right. [attach]19628[/attach]With the launch of the 2011 MacBook Pro …

If you are in the market for a new Apple computer, you might want to wait a few days. It would appear that new super thin iMacs, MacBooks and even a cheaper Mac Mini are on the way real soon.

Apple released its [URL="http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2009/07/21results.html"]third quarter numbers[/URL] yesterday and by any benchmark they were impressive. Consider these numbers as [URL="http://www.macworld.com/article/141829/2009/07/appleq309.html?lsrc=top_1"]reported by Macworld[/URL]: * $8.34 billion in sales and a net profit of $1.23 billion * 5.2 million iPhones * 10. 2 million iPods * 2.6 million Macs (of which1.75 million were laptops) It's impressive by any standards, but according to [URL="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/09/07/21/apple_profits_rise_15_on_sales_of_2_6m_macs_5_2m_iphones.html"]AppleInsider[/URL] it represents the best non-holiday quarter ever.

I like to follow news about Apple and its products as much as anyone. It's interesting and fun and watching the speculation is a kind of voyeurism, a way to get inside a company that keeps a tight lid on information, but much like baseball trade rumors, which I also love to follow, most of them turn out to be dead wrong. Yet we continue to insist on speculating and this week was no different as rumors flew about the health of the company and new lower-end devices.

The latest Apple Event has been and gone, and we are left with some exciting new Apple products as a result. First and foremost the shiny new MacBook with the all-metal enclosure crafted from a single block of aluminum. Apple says that this means not only a thinner MacBook but, importantly, a much more durable one. It doesn't look bad either! Inside the beautiful new body things have also changed. There is the addition of state of the art NVIDIA graphics for a start and large glass iPhone-inspired Multi-Touch trackpads to finish. Let's look at the NVIDIA graphics first then. …

Rumors are flying this week ahead of Apple's big Mac Book event on Tuesday that it will announce the long rumored sub-$1000 notebook. In fact, my friends at [URL="http://www.tuaw.com/2008/10/09/800-for-a-new-macbook/"]The Unofficial Apple Weblog[/URL] are reporting that someone has gotten their hands on a price sheet ahead of the announcement suggesting that there will be an $800 Mac Book.

Apple today had one of 'those' events in San Francisco. At 10am PDT, under the banner of Let's Rock, Steve Jobs made a number of important product announcements. These included a brand new version of iTunes in the shape of iTunes 8. This comes with support for HD television programmes, a 'Genius' playlist function which recommends songs based on what you listen to and what you own, and a new flat album view. A new iPod Nano, the Nano 4G, becomes the thinnest iPod ever. It can do the Genius thing all on its own without needing to be connected …

These sensors can be read by software, which you can use to control software such as computer games running on the laptop. Sorry, Macs only. Motion sensing laptops are nothing new.
