  • I have a late 2011 model MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion.  I love the AirPlay mirroring feature with Apple TV...BUT, how do I mirror with TVs that don't have Apple TV?  I used to run a cable from my mini display port to the HDMI input of a TV.

    I have a late 2011 model MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion.  I love the AirPlay mirroring feature with Apple TV...BUT, how do I mirror with TVs that don't have Apple TV?  I used to run a cable from my mini display port to the HDMI input of a TV.  This feature seems to be lost in the Mountain Lion upgrade.  Did Apple feel that once Mountain Lion came out that EVERYONE would have Apple TV?  There are no settings in System Preferences/Display like there used to be...only for AirPlay Mirroring.

    Running a cable to the HDMI port is still supported. (and still works on mine).
    If the Arrangement tab in System Preferences > Displays isn't present then it doesn't recognize the physical connection.  Double check all cables.  If that doesn't work try a PRAM reset:

    Kappy's Personal Suggestions About OS X Maintenance
    For disk repairs use Disk Utility.  For situations DU cannot handle the best third-party utility is: Disk Warrior;  DW only fixes problems with the disk directory, but most disk problems are caused by directory corruption. Drive Genius provides additional tools not found in Disk Warrior for defragmentation of older drives, disk repair, disk scans, formatting, partitioning, disk copy, and benchmarking. 
    Four outstanding sources of information on Mac maintenance are:
    1. OS X Maintenance - MacAttorney.
    2. Mac maintenance Quick Assist
    3. Maintaining Mac OS X
    4. Mac Maintenance Guide
    Periodic Maintenance
    OS X performs certain maintenance functions that are scheduled to occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly period. The maintenance scripts run in the early AM only if the computer is turned on 24/7 (no sleep.) See Mac OS X- About background maintenance tasks. If you are running Leopard or later these tasks are run automatically, so there is no need to use any third-party software to force running these tasks.
    If you are using a pre-Leopard version of OS X, then an excellent solution is to download and install a shareware utility such as Macaroni, JAW PseudoAnacron, or Anacron that will automate the maintenance activity regardless of whether the computer is turned off or asleep.  Dependence upon third-party utilities to run the periodic maintenance scripts was significantly reduced after Tiger.  (These utilities have limited or no functionality with Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion and should not be installed.)
    Defragmentation
    OS X automatically defragments files less than 20 MBs in size, so unless you have a disk full of very large files there's little need for defragmenting the hard drive except when trying to install Boot Camp on a fragmented drive. But you don't need to buy third-party software. All you need is a spare external hard drive and Carbon Copy Cloner.
    Cheap and Easy Defragmentation
    You will have to backup your OS X partition to an external drive, boot from the external drive, use Disk Utility to repartition and reformat your hard drive back to a single volume, then restore your backup to the internal hard drive. You will use Carbon Copy Cloner to create the backup and to restore it.
      1. Get an empty external hard drive and clone your internal drive to the
           external one.
      2. Boot from the external hard drive.
      3. Erase the internal hard drive.
      4. Restore the external clone to the internal hard drive.
    Clone the internal drive to the external drive
      1. Open Carbon Copy Cloner.
      2. Select the Source volume from the left side dropdown menu.
      3. Select the Destination volume from the left side dropdown menu.
      4. Be sure the Block Copy button is not depressed or is ghosted.
      5. Click on the Clone button.
    Destination means the external backup drive. Source means the internal startup drive.
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager appears.  Select the icon for the external drive and click on the upward pointing arrow button.
    After startup do the following:
    Erase internal hard drive
      1. Open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder.
      2. After DU loads select your internal 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. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended
           (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to
           GUID then click on the OK button. Click on the Partition button and wait
           until the process has completed.
    Restore the clone to the internal hard drive
      1. Open Carbon Copy Cloner.
      2. Select the Source volume from the left side dropdown menu.
      3. Select the Destination volume from the left side dropdown menu.
      4. Be sure the Block Copy button is not selected or is ghosted.
      5. Click on the Clone button.
    Destination means the internal hard drive. Source means the external startup drive.
    Note that the Source and Destination drives are swapped for this last procedure.
    Malware Protection
    As for malware protection there are few if any such animals affecting OS X. Starting with Lion Apple has included built-in malware protection that is automatically updated as necessary.
    Helpful Links Regarding Malware Protection:
    1. Mac Malware Guide.
    2. Detecting and avoiding malware and spyware
    3. Macintosh Virus Guide
    For general anti-virus protection I recommend only using ClamXav, but it is not necessary if you are keeping your computer's operating system software up to date. You should avoid any other third-party software advertised as providing anti-malware/virus protection. They are not required and could cause the performance of your computer to drop.
    Cache Clearing
    I recommend downloading a utility such as TinkerTool System, OnyX 2.4.3, or Cocktail 5.1.1 that you can use for periodic maintenance such as removing old log files and archives, clearing caches, etc. Corrupted cache files can cause slowness, kernel panics, and other issues. Although this is not a frequent nor a recurring problem, when it does happen there are tools such as those above to fix the problem.
    For emergency cleaning install the freeware utility Applejack.  If you cannot start up in OS X, you may be able to start in single-user mode from which you can run Applejack to do a whole set of repair and maintenance routines from the command line.  Note that AppleJack 1.5 is required for Leopard. AppleJack 1.6 is compatible with Snow Leopard. (AppleJack works with Snow Leopard or earlier.)
    Installing System Updates or Upgrades
    When you install any new system software or updates be sure to repair the hard drive and permissions beforehand. I also recommend booting into safe mode before doing system software updates.
    Backup and Restore
    Having a backup and restore strategy is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your computer. Get an external Firewire drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
      1. Carbon Copy Cloner.
      2. Deja Vu
      3. SuperDuper!
      4. Synk Pro
      5. Tri-Backup
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQs on maintenance and backup and restore.
    Always have a current backup before performing any system updates or upgrades.
    Be sure you have an adequate amount of RAM installed for the number of applications you run concurrently. Be sure you leave a minimum of 10% of the hard drive's capacity or 20 GBs, whichever is greater, as free space. Avoid installing utilities that rely on Haxies, SIMBL, or that alter the OS appearance, add features you will rarely if ever need, etc. The more extras you install the greater the probability of having problems. If you install software be sure you know how to uninstall it. Avoid installing multiple new software at the same time. Install one at a time and use it for a while to be sure it's compatible.

  • Is the Dell 3115CN compatible with a Macbook Pro running Mountain Lion? If so, how can I install the drivers and install the printer on my mac?

    I hace a Macbook Pro running Mountain Lion OS.... I need to print from time to time but don't have a new printer to go with my new macbook. Would a 3115CN work with it or no? If so, how can I set it up? Setting up a printer on a mac is a bit different from doing so on a windows machine and I am new to the macworld.
    All help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes. I'm running this printer from 10.6 through 10.9 and it's worked fine with all versions. Dell released updated drivers a while ago that make it much easier to administer this printer.

  • MacBook Pro running mountain lion restarts with Ethernet connected

    Hi all,
    My MacBook Pro (early 2012 15") running Mountain Lion (10.8.1) seems to always restart whenever I connect it to an Ethernet. The wireless works fine and there are no problems. The Ethernet connects then about a minute later my MacBook just restarts no matter what I am doing. I have gotten a new Ethernet cable but the same issue keeps happening. I haven't been able to try another Ethernet port as of yet, I am at school so mine might not work correctly however the Ethernet works fine for my friends PCs.
    Does anyone have any ideas that could help me? I would really like to use Ethernet because the wireless here tends to be slow.
    Thank you!

    I realize no one has responded to this but I am still having the issue even after a month. I also now have a panic report if that helps at all.

  • Help installing Brother 4100e printer on MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion

    I can't install my Brother 4100e printer on MacBook Pro. It is listed on the support page as a printer that software is available for. I have updated my software. I have done everything that I know to do. When I plug the printer into my computer it downloads the software but then I get a message that it can't install it because the software is not available from Apple. When I try to manually install the printer the message at the bottom of the box is that the software is available but when I try to install I get a box that says software isn't available.
    Its probably something simple I am doing wrong but I don't know what it is. I've been a Windows person all my life and got this Mac a couple months ago from my husband as a gift. If I can't print anything.... I am about to throw it out the window and go back to Windows... that's my frustration level.
    Please help.

    I would try a couple of things:
    Go to Applications --> Utilities and double click on Disk Utility. In there, select your hard disk in the left pane (should appear as Macintosh HD unless it's been changed). Then click on Repair Permissions.  Try connecting the printer again and going to System Preferences --> Printer and Fax and click on the "+" sign and see if your printer shows up in the left pane.  If it does, click on it to select it and add it.
    The above assumes the printer is connected via USB, since you didn't say you were trying to connect it wirelessly.
    You might also try, if the above doesn't work, rebooting your MacBook Pro and trying again.

  • Late 2011 MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion - Have two external displays (one MiniDisplay, one VGA-USB), how do I rotate just the one screen?

    The primary, horizontal monitor is connected by the VGA-MiniDisplay adapter, and the secondary monitor (vertical) is connected with a VGA-USB adapter. They both connect fine, but I only have the option to rotate both at once. That is, the main 'System Preferences' window that shows up on the primary monitor has the option to rotate, but only there -- when I rotate that screen it rotates both.
    Also, I'm not going to be using the actual MacBook screen. Any ideas as to how I can get this to work? Thanks!

    The Apple TB displays I've seen come with two TB connectors. You can cascade them in daisy-chain fashion.
    However, you are limited to how much information the GPU can produce and store. I've been told by the local apple shop (not an official Apple Store) geeks that if you cascade two of the big displays onto one of the Macs (big models), both will fire up, but the Mac's internal display will be disabled. Apparently 1GB of VRAM isn't enough for so many framebuffers.

  • I have a macbook pro, running mountain lion and iphone 4s, cannot sync audiobook

    I cannot sync my audiobook from the laptop to the iphone. I have checked "Books" in Itunes, but the audiobook will not sync, and there is no place that I can find on the phone or computer where audiobooks can be selected. I have attempted to search for this, but none of the solutions worked. Has anyone solved this?
    Thanks!
