45W adapter reading as 50W in system profiler

When using my 45W adapter, I've noticed that in my system profiler, under AC Charger Information, it says "AC Charger (Watts): 50." Does anyone know if this is normal, or if perhaps this could be causing my battery's full charge capacity to be diminishing?
Like many people, I've had problems with my battery losing power quickly, but Apple just sent me a new one yesterday, which within the day went from having a full charge capacity of 4400mAh to 4296. Can anyone tell me if this could be related to my "50W" adapter?

Welcome to the Apple discussions.
Can't help with why it's seeing 50, however, for your new battery, while Apple says you need to full charge/completely discharge it once for the lithium battery to know it's full capacity, most lithium batteries require two to three charge/discharge cycles to calibrate.

  • MBP "System Profile" error when try read "Logs" and long time blue screen

    MBP "System Profile" error when try to read "Logs" and it takes long time blue screen at startup.
    This happened all time when I open the "System Profiler" application and then select the option "Log", then the system crashed again over and over. The system was reinstalled clean but the error occurs again, without any third party application installed.

  • Why does my CPU speed read "O" in System Profiler?

    My System Profiler reads "O" for CPU speed, even though I have a 1.8GHz Giga Designs upgrade.
    The computer runs fine, it just really bothers me...
    Though I have heard of people having trouble running certain software when this problem occurs. By the way, I have reset the PRAM, and inserted a new battery as well, problem persists.

    Thanks! I love this discussion group... 8-)
    Err...what is MDD? Guess I don't really need to know, just need to upgrade my Mac. Please don't feel a need to explain if it's complicated.
    Japaman, notice you are in Japan. So am I, Nagano-ken (now 8 years). Also noticed you registered here on my birthday, April 16th. Coincidence? I think not...
    Just kidding. Anyway, always good to know another English-speaking Mac user in Japan. Please feel free to email me at [email protected]

  • Applications Info Is Not Showing Up in the System Profiler

    My applications info is not showing up in the new system profiler. I get the message "no information found". Any help would be appreciated.

    I'd get them to send you another card.  If it works, great!  If not, then the connection on the computer is bad.  If that's the case, you can get a wireless PCI card or a wireless USB adapter, but the PCI card would be better.  Test it with another Airport card first though.

  • Cannot find Battery Info in System Profiler

    Cannot find "Battery Info" in System Profiler (4.0.4).
    Originally, I was going to title this post "battery not charging" - which is why I am looking for battery details. Of course, as soon as I started typing the battery clicked up a notch (29% to 30%).
    So, I got a confused battery and a confused System Profiler.
    A couple of weeks ago I had drained the battery completely and had to even run off the backup battery as I quickly finished what I was doing. I had since fully charged the battery and thought there were no problems.
    Then suddenly a couple of days ago, I looked up and it was stuck at 33%. When I tried to switch from "Percentage" to "Time", all I got was a "Calculating...", which it never actually did. I tried unplugging the computer, and it indeed did run off battery power, so it was at least communicating power-wise, if not information-wise. Two days of fiddling around offered no solutions. (Zapped the PRAM, reset PMU). Meanwhile the battery kept on not charging.
    Then, I start typing here and suddenly the battery is communicating with the computer. Percentage is ticking up and there is even an estimated "time until full". However, System Profiler still does not see any battery, or in fact even give me anything to click on for power management. It's not under Hardware, Software, Network or Logs. "Extended Report" doesn't find it either. I'm hoping I am just missing it somehow... is "Battery Information" hidden somewhere?
    The battery plug has now switched from green to orange and the indicator icon from a battery with a plug, to a battery with a lightning bolt. While I was trying to figure out the problem, I have taken out the battery several times, so I doubt it would be a simple connection issue.
    While I would like to believe my computer has magically healed itself, I suspect that something is still amiss. Maybe earlier versions of System Profiler did not have Battery Info?

    Hi, RW, and welcome to Apple Discussions. System Profiler prior to the version that came with Tiger doesn't report any battery info. If you're running Panther, that's why you can't find anything about your battery in SP. Jeremy Kezer's XBattery will provide info about your battery in Panther.
    Test to see whether your battery charges with a different, known-good AC adapter. That's the cheapest component of the charging system to replace if yours is faulty, and with luck that will prove to be where the problem lies. Other possibilities are a bad battery, DC-In board, or logic board.

  • IPod not recognized by iTunes & Disk Utility - Recognized by System Profile

    I have a 40GB iPod Clickwheel (4th Gen?) that i'm trying to fix back to life since my mini was just stolen and i'm out on the road on tour all the time. my iPod actually powers up by itself just fine, the battery life is just peachy, and it can run independently without songs (i'm able to look around just as though i had songs on there - i can play games, alter settings, etc etc.).
    However, there's a few things i've noticed!
    When i go to the iPod's about menu (when disconnected from the computer), it shows there's no songs, that there's 0 capacity, 0 available - shows that the version is 3.1.1, the serial and model numbers, but the format is unknown.
    I've tried plugging the dang thing into my computer to much avail - IF iTunes recognizes it, it says it needs to be restored -- GREAT! so i try to restore the iPod, however, i almost instantly get an error: The iPod cannot be restored because it is currently busy. When i clicked the help tag, it says it's a common problem in iTunes 7.0 - great, i have 8.0.2; and i've tried running everything from a restart on the ipod to a restart on the computer, updating all my system files, running the iPod in disk mode, etc, but nothing seems to make it want to restore.
    when i look in system profiler; it shows that the iPod is hooked up to my USB port (which is just fine, and i've never had problems running a click-wheel iPod through that before); however both Disk Utility and iTunes do not acknowledge it's existence. what gives?
    is my iPod a goner? how would i go about restoring this so i can use it? I've tried it on my Power PC (Specs below) as well as trying it on an iBook and iMac; with the same results every time. i know it's not the cable, because the iPod actually charged via that cable last night!
    any help!?

    If you can get it to show up in Disk Utility, try reformatting (erasing) it in Disk Utility. If that process completes without stalling or errors, quit Disk Utility and run iTunes. Immediately attempt to do another Restore to install the iPod's software and initialize.
    If the iPod does not erase successfully (it should take less than one minute for a standard erase) in Disk Utility, the iPod's hard drive may be faulty.

    You don't need any kind of security software.
    Just surf the web carefully, pay attention to where you're going and don't install anything that you don't recognize.  If you are asked to enter an admin user name and password, DON'T.  Unless you know for sure that you initiated the installation from a known and reliable source (like Apple).
    Mac malware relies on social engineering.  No amount of security/anti-virus, blah, blah, blah software is going to help.

  • How can I access an unsupported usb device that's seen by system profiler

    is there a way to access an unsupported usb device? my parents bought my daughter a cheap and easy to use digital camera and I am looking for a way to access the photos. the camera's manual mentions that there is no mac driver and there are no plans to develop one. I plug it in anyways in the event the system / Iphoto recognizes this, But I get nothing on the desktop as in a generic disk image icon. I open system profiler and My G4 knows the camera is plugged in. If this interface between the two is recognized how can I access the camera?
    does a driver have to be written to allow access? I saw a usb dev kit on version tracker but I have no clue as to how to write a driver. I could get a flash card reader but I was hoping that there may be some back door or an app somewhere to allow me to get the photos off the camera.

    Hi, Israel.
    You wrote: " I plug it in anyways in the event the system / Iphoto recognizes this"See if Image Capture recognizes the camera. Launch Image Capture, which is in the Macintosh HD > Applications folder.
    Otherwise, you're probably going to have to go the route of using a card reader. While the connection may be USB, they may be using some non-standard implementation that requires a driver.
    Writing drivers is not something you'd want to even attempt since you didn't create the hardware!
    Good luck!

  • On my Macbook pro 15 2011, System Profiler is suggesting that it uses SATA III for the hard drive and SATA II for the Optical Drive.  Is that true?

    On my Macbook pro 15, 2011, System Profiler is suggesting that it uses SATA III for the hard drive and SATA II for the Optical Drive.  Is that true?

    That is correct. The tech specs indicate:
    Hard Drive Interface

    Optical Drive Interface
    3.0 or 6.0 Gbps Serial ATA (SATA)

    If you are not successful from re-running the combo update, remember to do a Permissions repair on the entire hard drive using the First Aid panel of Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility.
    Also, boot from the current OS's install disc 1, find that version of Disk Utility among the pull downs at the top of the display, and do a Disk Repair on the entire hard drive, rerunning it repeatedly if necessary until it reports that no repairs are necessary.

    This kind of line occurs when I press some key too, reason why I think isn't very important. Althougth, I put everything I see related.

    With TestDisk over EFI partition:
    check_FAT: Unusual media descriptor (0xf0!=0xf8)

    EFI System 46 409645 409600 [EFI]
    Before the problem, I did some things:
    - I installed rEFTit
    - I investigate how to boot from HD a Ubuntu LiveCD. I successfully boot from one partition created with Disk Utility but ubiquity has a bug error and can't umount /cdrom when it is going to change the partition table. I don't think Linux changed my partition table at all, neither GPT either EFI partition. But I don't know how to probe it.
    - I had done a boot from pendrive with a really extrage crash that advertises Macintosh doesn't well prepared for USB flash booting from rEFIt.
    - Something I found that I think isn't normal is a second option that appears with rEFIt when I only have a HFS+ partition and an EFI partition. Seems like the GPT/EFI partition didn't well update when I changed my partitions (and no USB HD device was input).
    - My USB device/controller/software was fine until (I think) booted from a FAT partition with an Ubuntu ISO image and I tried to install it(hipotesis).
    - Once I had an extrange problem when I disconnected an USB HD and I couldn't mount any more until I halted the system.
    - I tried with the IOUSBFamily kext for 10.5.8(349.4.3), but nothing changes.
    - I tried reinstall rEFIT.
    - I tried updating Partition table.
    - I can't backup my data with no USB, I don't wanna format (if possible) my HD and I want to discover the problem.
    - My USB HDs function in other PCs.
    - Map Partition Scheme: GUID Partition table.
    - My knowledge on this subject are scarce
    I think the problem is EFI partition but I want to confirm previously before trying to recover this partition.
    Thanks for the patience,
    (Sorry about my english, if you don't understand anything, please tell me)

    I am having exactly the same problem. I have a LaCie 750GB HD that I've been using to store files too large for my internal HD and suddenly it won't mount to my computer (when it plug it it I get a message that says "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." And when I tried to fix it using disk utility it said my only option was to backup my HD and reformat, but I can't access the files on the HD to back them up and I would rather not lose everything. Any ideas?
