On a late 2012 iMac 27" running OSX Yosemite 10.10.2.

I have an Apple USB keyboard with the numeric pad on the right hand side. Weirdly, the keys on the numeric pad all work except for the ones in a line straight down the middle - that is the 8, 5, 2 and = keys. I have no idea how I did this, nor how to fix it.

I'm trying to make sure of an old MacBook (white one with Intel Core 2 Duo, 2G RAM) and installed Windows 7 without bootcamp (booted from DVD, installed as if i am on PC)

Problems i face are:

1. Seems to be performing slow. If i re-format and install windows via bootcamp, will it run faster?

2. Cannot find any drivers for Graphics card, mouse etc since all suggestions i see guide me through BootCamp. Is there any chance I find those drivers?

I don't get it.

I was able to upgrade my dedicated VRAM on just 8gb of ram to 512 VRAM

But on my 16gb early 2013 Macbook Pro 15", Intel 4000 I only have 512mb dedicated VRAM...

Can someone tell me if there is a fix? Or a way to increase the dedicated VRAM?

I recently installed a new SSD about a month and a half ago and everything was working great. I followed the instructions I received here and everything was fine. I installed an Apple update about a week ago, before doing so I disable TE, re-enabled kext, installed the update, turned TE back on, disabled kext and everything was fine. I followed the same procedure for the most recent Apple update that came out this week and now my MBP won't boot up. I have the USB that had the original OS X installer on it and am wondering do I just have to reinstall OS X from the USB and go from there?

I plugged my phone on USB to my MacBook Pro to charge and a warning popped up (I can't remember exactly what but something about too much charge to he device)

Anyway I unplugged the phone and replugged it in and the laptop died. Now when the charger is plugged in it flashes slight orange and does not turn on!

Please help!

Basically I'm trying to set SelfControl, an Internet blocking app, to start automatically at a specific time and run for a specific length of time. The problem is that the app requires me to manually input my admin password to actually activate the block, which defeats the whole purpose since I can just not type it in and continue to surf to infamy. That's what I need help with.

I am using the latest version of OS X 10.10, if that makes any difference.

I recently replaced the external HDD that is connected to my (headless) Mac Mini and which I use as media center, with a WD 6TB Mybook (USB 3.0). The external HDD is used to store my Itunes Library

With my previous external WD HDD I never had file transfer issues, but I am now frequently having issues when I try to transfer files from Itunes ( . but file transfer to the Mac library is not possible. The error message I get is "A problem has occured when downloading the file 'xxxxx'. An unknown error has occured (-50). Check if a network connection has been established.'

I have a MacBook pro laptop and I need to replace my harddisk after it had a failure. I am now thinking of buying a new and even better one but I do not know the limitations if any. I understand apple computers would not just work with anything. Please help me get a good SSD that has good specs and will work with the laptop.
