Experienced PC guy - first time messing with a Mac and doing it for a friend.

HDD is completely dead.   I'm going to replace the drive - but I'm unclear as to how I go about reinstalling the OS.  I don't even know what version was on the computer before it died.  How does Apple tie your OS purchase to you and your equipment?

It's wonderful to see everybody doing the right thing. ;)

:: Justin stands on soapbox::  

As a Combat Veteran, I'm disgusted by all white supremacist groups and the thought that they think they represent any values or ideals of the United States. I'm sure my military brethren (sisters, brothers, and transgenders) would give me a virtual high five when I say the US Army's official motto, "This We'll Defend" is a feeling that runs through all of our hearts and minds. We believe that this nation is for everyone who wants to come and be a part of it. Simply put, it's our job as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen, to defend them with our lives.

Oh, on the "race" element, according to science, Mitochondrial DNA, and I would say common sense, we are all one race (Human Race) and that the pigment of our skin is superficial. Race is a social invention, not a biological truth.

Who says?

Oh, only a prestigious and reputable school like: MIT and a preeminent evolutionary biologist Joseph L. Graves Jr.. Here is a conversation the NY Times had with him: Link.

Even if there were different races, why would I not call you my brother or sister? We are all experiencing the Human Condition together and should bond with, and defend each other as family.

I leave you with a quote from the fictitious, but ever so right, Jean-Luc Picard, "No being is so important that he can usurp the rights of another."

For those of us, that like seeing our alma maters take a pigskin and strategically move down the field, you'll be happy to know that ESPN on the 4th Gen Apple TV has just made it an even better experience. You can now watch four games at once! That means you can watch your school's arch rival, the arch rival of your spouse's school, your alma mater, and your husband's/wife's alma mater all at the same time. Since my wife is an ND grad and I'm a Cardinal, we can now both poke fun at each other while being in the same room (no more separate TVs), which ultimately means the buffalo wings and Guinness are in the same room too. If this is not reason enough for you to get excited, then how about the other great things that come with the autumn season: the grass is barely growing, holiday cheer is in the air, and pumpkin spice is back in your coffee mug. Either way, I hope the autumn season brings you the happiness you deserve and that your school makes it to a bowl game.

This sounds pretty cool! I'm especially excited for Disney's recent announcement that they will have a dedicated ESPN streaming service that isn't tied to a cable subscription.  I just "cut the cord" again, and live sports are really the only thing  that we miss and is frustrating to access.

I have a Mac where I use Parallels to use PowerPoint to create a presentation.

#1 It seems that MS did not give a viewer for PowerPoint files on a Mac. True or False?

#2 Can I Host GTM on the Mac, then open Parallels and Windows to demo a PP presentation?

#3 If I log onto GTM from Windows, then I assume any potential problems go away.

True?

Hi experts

My 2013 MacBook Pro has decided not to charge today. I have tried with both the extension to the power supply and without and it won't charge. Interestingly, without the extension the light on the charger came on for a few seconds and the MacBook felt like it was vibrating before the light on the charger went off. Not sure what that might signify so thought i would ask. Anyone know if it sounds like the battery or the charger?

Cheers

Currently when this user types in the first few letters of an email address or a person's name within Mac Outlook 2016 there are no suggested email addresses that display.

So what methods can be used to regenerate this user's Mac Outlook 2016 email address auto complete list?

I am not as cluey on the Apple Platform as I am on the PC platform.  I have a client with a 3-4 yr old iMac.  They have 2011 Outlook for Mac installed.  It has multiple identities due to changes that have occurred over the time in how their email has been set-up.  
The issue is that at some stage in the last 2 weeks, they have lost the mapping of the folder list "On My Computer" in their left pane in Outlook.  Their email is setup as Exchange using Office365.  But for some reason he used to keep the majority of this emails in folders list in 'On My Computer" in the left menu pane.

Now this main folder list has dissappeared.

Is there a way of retrieving this or remapping the list?

I have read up online and one forum suggested we recover the identity folder list from the Documents/MicrosoftUserData/Office 2011 identities/{Name of Identity folder} from the Time Machine, which we have done.  It needed to rebuild the folders, then after that the Account even dissappeared. I had to re create the account, still no "On my computer" folders??

Can anyone suggest anything else to try and see if we can recover or remap these folders??
I am presuming the folders and files are still on the computer but just cannot figure it out.

I will be doing a Gmail to Office 365 migration for an organization that has several Macs that contain lots of contacts.

Some of these contacts are only saved on the local Mac.

We need to be sure that these contacts are moved into Office 365 as part of the migration and that no contacts are left on these local Macs.

How can this be done?

I use Audacity and have been recording my audio at 44.1 kHz. As far as bit depth, I have no idea, but have used the defaults.

I need to find the ideal for the best quality sound on my videos and podcasts, and find if my gear is up to it.

I have a MacBook:
2.4 GHz Intel Core 7
8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1024 MB

And my microphone is:
Blue Yeti
Ultimate USB

purchased a few years ago.

Can you tell me the best sampling rates, bit depth, etc. for my recordings and also the maximum values my current gear can support?

Is this microphone sub-standard to give a professional sound?

Suggestions on improvements?

Thanks.

I have a code that generates a serial number.
Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim ReqNo As String
    Set ws = Worksheets("MainRecord")
getNum:
    r = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp)
    ReqNo = r + 1
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(ReqNo, Worksheets("MainRecord").Range("C:C"), False)) Then GoTo getNum
    On Error Resume Next
    Me.REQUESTNO.Value = ReqNo

It can pull up but only number but when I format my codes using these format

Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim ReqNo As String
    Set ws = Worksheets("MainRecord")
getNum:
    r = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp)
  ReqNo = "RAS17" &  format(r + 1,"00")
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(ReqNo, Worksheets("MainRecord").Range("C:C"), False)) Then GoTo getNum
    On Error Resume Next
    Me.REQUESTNO.Value = ReqNo

I am getting an error because maybe of the ISnumeric  code.

I ll be glad if you can help me with this.21223.JPG

macOS 10.12.6 Messages no longer finds all iPhone contacts and earlier SMS Messages (to iPhone!!) were not delivered, To: entries are now colored orange (or red).

Messages returns 'Messages cannot send a message to 978846XXXX.
1234567890 is not registered with Message'

978846XXXX (used real number) worked before - why not now?
Entering known iPhone number as 10 digits turns green and returns 'Google Talk (Offline)'

Tried 'Jabber' (whatever that is) set to 'Available" - nogo here!

Sending message to myself with iPhone OK with iPhone - nothing on macOS Messages

What now?

Hi All,
I have a client with an older Macbook Pro.  She wants to give the computer to another person.  I have removed the OS in the  macOS Recovery console.  When I got to Reinstall Yosemite, it prompts to enter an Apple ID/PW.  I have tried entering the current owner's Apple ID/PW, but will not let me download the OS.

I have tried:
-Also in the Recovery Console, I have gone to help, logged into iCloud using my client's credentials, then reverting back to the above steps, but still no luck.

Question:
How can I reinstall Yosemite onto the Mac?
0
Using Finder

I can go to iCloud and see the 50 folders.

I need to download these onto a OS X system for local storage but cannot find an option?

Anyone know how I might do this?

My friend says her MacBook locks up when she start using Dropbox. And neither of us like Google, so Google Drive is out.

"Large": 250 MB or so...

What is a good free platform for large file sharing?

I could delete the file after transferred, if there is a cap on the file space permitted...

It needs to work on Windows also, but mainly Mac.

Thanks.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

A customer brought in an Apple Macbook Air that when I turn it on it will make sound and the screen will change to a little lighter color but that is all.  The customer claimed before she brought in the Macbook it would come on but just come up with a question mark on the screen like it wasn't seeing an hard drive.  This made me think the hard drive was going bad, but now the screen won't come on.  Could a bad hard drive cause the screen to not come on or am I looking at another issue?

I have a macbook pro early 2011.  I run bootcamp, and am running windows 10. I'm almost always in windows, and I noticed the other day, that it gets really hot, so hot I can't touch the bottom of the laptop. About 1 year ago, I replaced the battery with a new battery and a new Samsung SSD.  So I Cleaned fans at that time, and it's strange why it's running so hot.

Any idea's what I can do to not make it run so hot?  Is there a way to check and see if the processor fans are actually working?
Not sure what else can cause it to burn up?

I have a MAC server (latest version) running on a macOS Sierra 10.12.6 in a VMWare ESXi 5.5 environment on a HP DL380 G7 server.
Server has 4GB of memory, there are 5 users connected to it.

My users are complaining about slow speeds when opening files and when saving files (like exporting to PDF from adobe Indesign).

Before this, the files were on a SBS 2011 server and opening files went faster. We switched to a MAC server because we had constant issues saving files, they were always in use.

After logging on and while using his Mac OS X 10.9.5 computer a user repeatedly receives messages about things wanting to access and use the keychain similar to the message shown in the screenshot.

I have already performed first aid on the keychain and then verified the keychain but continue to get this message.

If we click the Cancel button this message continues to appear and keeps prompting for this password which we don't know.

What can be done to fix this issue?
