Can a late 2011 Macbook Pro utilize 1.35v RAM? Can OS X 10.8 display the RAM voltage?

Can a late 2011 Macbook Pro (Sandy Bridge, not Ivy Bridge) utilize 1.35 volts Ram or will the Pro run it at 1.5 volts? Is there anyway in OS X 10.8 to determine what voltage the RAM is running at?

Thanks again wjosten.
Do you know of any third-party software titles that can provide the RAM's voltage? I ask because others have made unsubstantiated claims of using 1.35V ram with a late 2011 MacBook Pro and because Crucial's website suggests the use of 1.35V with a late 2011 MacBook Pro. Unless it is a mistake, I do not know why Crucial would suggest this:

  • Late 2011 MacBook Pro stuck at spinning wheel of death after a Thunderbolt issue, HD erasing and fresh Lion install from Recovery HD. Please help me!!!

    So, I think the title says it all, but to give you a little more info:
    I connected my late 2011 MacBook Pro to my TV using a Thunderbolt HDMI adapter, and closed the lid. When I opened it, it wouldn't show the login screen, so I restarted using power button. Got stuck at the Apple logo with the spinning wheel. So I booted the Recovery HD and found out it was a HD problem, so I (reluctantly) erased the HD and installed Lion from scratch. When it rebooted (after DOWNLOADING the Lion components) I got some terminal commands (sorry for not being more specific, still a noob when it comes to Mac) and then the screen faded and a message appeared saying I needed to reboot the computer. So I did. 3 effing times. Then I got stuck AGAIN at the spinning wheel, and I'm currently with that on my screen. I'm trying the forums before calling Apple (my computer's still within the 90 days of warranty) because it's not yet 9 A.M. where I live

    can you go back to recovery mode then open disk utility.
    in disk utility, higlight the disk, the one saying the brand and size then click on repair disk under first aid tab
    if it repairs fine, that's okay
    if repair was not successful, go to partition and change current to 1 partition then apply
    install lion again
    hope this helps

  • How can I install Windows 8.1 using a USB Pen Drive in Late 2011 Macbook Pro with DVD R/W given.

    How can I install Windows 8.1 using a USB Pen Drive in Late 2011 Macbook Pro with DVD R/W given.
    I have Boot Camp 5.1.2 (497) and there is no option for installing using USB. I have downloaded an image of Windows 8.1 already.
    I can't install using DVD R/W because it's not working.

  • Late 2011 MacBook Pro can't boot after Yosemite install

    After installing Yosemite on this late 2011 MacBook Pro it stops about a third of the way into booting up. It displays a null sign. I can boot into recovery disk, or external HD (I don't have a backup of this system, but can boot from my MacBook Air's clone) if I use option-R or just option at startup. It won't go into Safe Mode. From the ext HD I have reinstalled Yosemite on the MBP, but it still freezes mid-boot. Disk Utility repair permissions, repair HD, zap PRAM, SMC, I've tried all of these (from reading advice here, and PM from Ogelthorpe). I have copied the Etre Report below. Suggestions?

    Drive Partition and Format
    1. Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer Disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button.  When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.
    If you are preparing an external or a non-startup drive, then open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder.
    2. After DU loads select your hard drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Note the SMART status of the drive in DU's status area.  If it does not say "Verified" then the drive is failing or has failed and will need replacing.  SMART info will not be reported  on external drives. Otherwise, click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
    3. Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed.
    4. Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
    5. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Security button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
    6. Click on the Erase button. The format process can take up to several hours depending upon the drive size.
    7. Quit DU when it is finished and return to the installer. Install Snow Leopard. Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.

  • 13" late 2011 MacBook Pro has frozen after Yosemite installation. I can, however, boot from a clone of my MacBook Air that is on an external drive. Despite the fact that I can boot from the external, could it be the RAM that's the prob

    My daughter's 13" late 2011 MacBook Pro has frozen (null sign displays) after Yosemite installation. I can, however, boot from a clone of my MacBook Air that is on an external drive. I reinstalled Yosemite on the MBP HD, but it still hangs in mid install. Despite the fact that I can boot from the external, could it be the RAM that's the problem? I'd happily put 8 GB in if it seems probable that would solve the problem. I've tried all the suggested procedures that I've seen posted here. Disk Utility, and my older version of DiskWarrior indicate the HD is OK. I have DiskWarrior 5 on order.

    Boot the MBP with the OPTION key down.  If successful, you should see two HDD icons,  Select the recovery partition (on the right).
    From the 4 option menu select Disk Utility.
    Run Disk Utility>First Aid, Verify and Repair.
    If the disk cannot be repaired, it will have to be replaced.
    Ciao.

    If you are using airplay then that should be fine once the content is playing. You can't use home-sharing in this manner however.

    Sorry ... I read but was unfortunately distracted from your original post.  You have a system that came with Lion.  The Lion that is on your system is only for your computer and cannot be downloaded from the app store again because you never purchased it officially through the App Store.
    Try this for making an external USB/DVD copy of Recovery on an external disk.  internet is still required for reinstall, though, I believe: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4848.  But at least you have a separate Recovery Partition if you ever need a fully new and empty internal disk.
    Your assumption is incorrect. Although he may not be able to download it from the App store he can download it directly for the Apple servers using the recovery partition on his original drive.
    All you have to do is start the install routine and then point the install to an external hard drive. Once the download is finished the computer will reboot to start the install. At that reboot disconnect the external drive so the install can not start. Boot the computer back into the OS on the internal hard drive, which is what will happen automatically once the external drive is disconnected. Then connect the external and copy the files from it that were downloaded. Right click on that downloaded package file and select Show contents. In the contents of that package is a file called InstallESD.DMG. Copy that file out of the package and burn it down to a DVD or USB thumb drive and you now have the Full Lion Installer. I have several of them laying around on different hard drives and 2 USB thumb drives which I have used to reinstall Lion on my 15" MBP.
    Sorry OP I should of just typed this out in my first post.

    Although Apple states a maximum of 8 GB, OWC (macsales.com) has tested 16 GB, so if you want to install 16 GB, I'd go with OWC as they tested it and do guarantee their RAM to work with Macs.

  • HT4783 I have an early 2010 and a late 2011 MacBook Pro, they both have the latest upgrade of Lion. Neither of them can "see" each other in AirDrop. I have reset the apple ID on both. Is there any way I can make them "see" each other?

    I have a mid 2009 and a late 2011 MacBook Pro, they both have the latest upgrade of Lion. Neither of them can "see" each other in AirDrop. I have reset the apple ID on both. Is there any way I can make them "see" each other?
    As far as I know the older mac is compatible with AirDrop.
    Thanks

    So by dual-signal, are you referring to 2.5Ghz/5Ghz signal?
    I'm pretty sure my Mac mini 2011 has that but for whatever reason I cannot send via AirDrop to the mini. The mini can see other computers like my 2010 MacBook Pro and send files to it, but not in reverse. The MBP is unable to see or send to the mini unless the mini has engaged it to send a file to MBP. Even then it's temporary and the mini will disappear from the MBP's AirDrop radar upon completing the delivery of its file.
    So I'm a bit perplexed on how the Mac mini has AirDrop, can see other AirDrop computers and send files to them, but cannot be seen on other Macs to reciprocate.

    How did you try to use Acitivty Monitor?
    Open Activity Monitor, choose "All processes" from the list, and sort processes by CPU usage. More likely than not, there will be task using up good bit of CPU.
    You could also try resetting SMC:

    You may need the "gopro" agent if you've a "GoPro" camera, and you may need the "sierrawireless" and "novatelwireless" if you use a Sierra Wireless device of some sort and if you actually need the novatel drivers, but I think that you can safely get rid of the Seagate drivers (unless you need them for some sort of NAS???) and the other stuff.
    Give a call back and tell us what you actually have and actually need. Most of it just looks like junk!

    EDIT: And you definitely need to uninstall ANY SmithMicro software!!!

  • Windows 7 install on late 2011 MacBook Pro without bootcamp (performance issues)

    Hey guys I'm hoping I can get this issue resolved. I have purchased a late 2011 MacBook Pro (radeon 6750m 1gig). I installed a fresh copy of windows 7 without bootcamp. Having real issues with game performance like world of Warcraft. I have done this with an older unibody Mac and it ran great (for any non believer)... But now this time around I'm getting horrible fps in game. I'm thinking it may be driver related it buy I am having trouble finding the right drivers to see if that's then issue. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    That is completely false. There is no real need to leave OS X on the Mac if you don't want to, especially with Win 7 or 8. That may of been true with Windows XP but not anymore.
    The problem with leaving OS X installed is then you are really limited with what you can do with the drive. You can only have one Windows partition and if you fool with it at all Windows will no longer boot. you can't even change the OS X partition otherwise Windows would boot
    Windows 7 will install all by itself. No need for any Boot loaders or Hack Boot system. Pop the Win 7 DVD in the DVD drive and restart. Windows will be installed all by itself. But you do need the Apple support files.
    In the end if you are going to run Windows on a computer by itself then you really should not buy a Mac. The hardware is the same and as to the OPs perceived better built quality I personally do not see it. And if you actually read some of the posts on this and other Mac forums you will see that perceived build quality is just a bunch of hype, in my opinion.
    To the OP. You aren't missing anything.
    If you had carefully read what I wrote, I merely said that doing the install on a blank drive wasn't a good idea. That's because it can create issues the OP is having. A Mac's hardware is no different than a comparable Windows machine, but the EFI/BIOS/Firmware is. Macs are in something of a no-man's land in this regard, as they have neither an old-school BIOS or modern UEFI of recent Windows-based notebooks. I'm willing to bet that the performance problems the OP is having relates to the fact that a straight EFI install on a modern MBP "enables" (for lack of a better word) automatic graphic switching. The capability manifests, but the functionality is not there. Enterprising individuals have been trying to get graphic switching in Windows to work as it does on the OS X side ever since MacBooks debuted with this abliity but with zero success.
    Using Boot Camp bypasses this, as the discreet GPU is enabled full-time in Windows. Thus, you will realize proper performance.
    As far as perceived build quality, Apple machines are at the high end of the consumer notebook spectrum. They're certainly better than most of the other machines you can pick up at your local Best Buy, but they fall short of business-class machines such as the Dell Latitude/Precision, HP ProBook/EliteBook, and Lenovo ThinkPad.

  • Late 2011 Macbook Pro with SSD Freezing

    Hello,
    I have a late 2011 macbook pro and about six or so months ago I have it a new lease on live with a Samsung 840 SSD (non pro).
    I haven't really had any problems with that until recently - the machine started locking up on wakeup. This meant that the beachball of doom would start and each program would gradually in turn become unresponsive. Shutdown command wouldn't work and would time out, force quit wouldn't open, and although I could move the mouse around and sometimes switch between programs, they didn't work and the only cure was to hold the power button until it switched off.
    This has also started happening just when the computer has been on for a certain amount of time *without sleeping*. For example, if I watch an episode of a tv show, by the end of it the video is still running but all of the other programs are locked up - clicking out of VLC causes the beachball of doom. This also happens in other programs - it's even happened as I've been writing this, and the only remedy seems to be a hard restart.
    The problem doesn't seem to occur in windows. In OSX I have 'put hard drives to sleep' turned off, and TRIM enabled. I also disables the sudden movement sensor. I have also reset the SMC.
    Does anyone know of a remedy short of a full reinstall of Mountain Lion?
    Oh and I used samsung magician in windows to update the firmware of the drive. It reports that the drive should be fine.
    Thanks very much for any help anyone can give me with this!

    anything is possible - corrupt files - corrupt drivers - it could be anything.
    try doing a nvram/pram reset and see if that sorts it out.
    i have ssd installed in all my Macbook/Macbook Pro and have never had any issues.
    Then again, I don't have windows installed in any of them.
    hopefully the nvram/pram reset sorts it out for you.
    once you've done that reset - go back to system preferences - startup disk and select your ssd as the startup drive again - then restart it again.
