Hi all, My macbook has been dropped and completley smashed...

Hi all,
My macbook has been dropped and completley smashed...i.e bent battery, smashed screen,etc   I have already ordered a new macbook air, the question is i need to get my data of the old one as my last back up was exactly 6 months ago, is that possible ???
Many thanks

If your MacBook was off when dropped, the Hard Drive can sometimes survive a crash that will break the screen.
To access it, you will need to remove the drive and place it in a 2.5" format drive enclosure. If you dropped today's MacBook, it would require a SATA connector inside. Some really old ones may be ATA drives.
USB interface on the outside will be really slow, but is really cheap. If you think you might want to use the enclosure later for anything except backup-only, upgrade to a FireWire enclosure. OWC has a few different ones:

  • How do I get an iPod touch to turn on other than the normal way. It has been dropped and all I can get is a blank screen. Have tried holding the HOME button down for 30 sec. but that didn't work.

    How does one get an iPod nano to turn on other than the "normal" way? This one has been dropped and all I can get is a blank screen. I have tried holding down the HOME button to restart it but no go. When I connect it to my computer, I am told to enter the PASSCODE which I cannot do as there is no touchpad.

    David ..
    Your topic refers to an iPod touch
    Then you say:  How does one get an iPod nano to turn on ......
    If it's an iPod touch, try a reset.
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    If that doesn't help, whether it's an iPod nano or touch, it probably needs service >  Apple - Support - Service Answer Center

  • Error message: ni: A frame has been dropped and the acqusition has been canceled

    I use a NI PCIe 1433 framegrabber with a Basler spl4096-140km line camera.
    Using triggered acqusition with an external source, I can get a framerate of 68500Hz in NI-MAX.
    When I use the Matlab image acquisiton toolbox to acquire data, I however very often get the error message: 'ni: A frame has been dropped and the acqusition has been canceled". This happens even at much lower framerates (20kHz) and only seems to go away when acquiring data slowly.
    Computer is a Dell Precision 7600 and I assume there should be no issues with RAM or the PC being slow. The error does not go away when reducing the data size (i.e. reducing the ROI to one single point that is readout).
    Do you have any pointers why this error message appears and what can be done about it?
    Thank you!
    Reto

    Hello,
    I encountered the same problem and I think it is because the allowcation of storage in matlab cannot catch up with that of the camera so that it will drop frames when the buffer is full.
    I also want to know how to solve that.

  • Strange IMAQ Error Message: "ni: A frame has been dropped and the acquisition has been canceled."

    Hello,
    I am getting a strange error trying to use the NI PCIe-1427 with the MATLAB image acquisition toolbox configured with continuous acquisition.  After about 5 minutes of acquisition, I get the error below:
    ??? ni: A frame has been dropped and the acquisition has been canceled.
    Does anyone have any clues as to why I am getting this error / where I can find out what causes it?  I need to acquire several hours worth of data and this error completely aborts my acquisition.
      --Y

    Hello,
    Turns out that I found the problem.  I had a slow memory allocation in my MATLAB code and this delay allowed too many frames to be accumulated in memory.  I still do not know the source of the exact text of the error, but upon removing the slow memory allocation the error no longer occurs.  I believe that it may have resulted from a buffer overrun of some sort in the underlying driver.
    Given that this no longer poses a problem for me, I will not pursue it further.
    Thank you for your help!

    Hey DannyHTDB,
    Thanks for the question. If you follow steps 1, 4, then 5 in the iPod troubleshooting assistant, that will most likely resolve the issue:

    Assuming he has a backup that includes the data that has been deleted, then we should use that backup to restore his device.

  • FIFA13, Since updating to IOS8, all cloud data has been "lost" and saved games are no longer available.

    FIFA13. Since updating to IOS8 all previously saved iCloud data has been lost and I am unable to restore previously saved games. Also when saving new games they cannot be restored from iCloud. I have reinstalled ISO8 and FIFA13 but this does not fix the issue.

    Same problem here. No saved files, saving is not possible and or doesn't work. iCloud is useless in this case.
    I see it as an EA issue. The way they work is disabling certain feature to push users towards new versions of the game.
    Money is everything, they don't care about their users and this problem will never be fixed, such a shame!

    I still see some active and inactive extensions listed in the System Details List.
    Did you reinstall those?
    The inactive extensions may be installed globally by other software and not in the Firefox profile folder.
    You can check if there is a new profile created.

  • Macbook has been hacked and  Genius Bar cannot help..anyone here please?!

    My MacBook has been hacked, the mouse started moving on its own and clicking etc. the next day someone called my home and told me my system had been hacked, which I guessed was the mouse activity. So I downloaded the programme they asked me to, stupidly, which enabled them to remotely control my computer. The screen went blue and they started opening my documents / creating folders etc. I had a nasty feeling the whole time and when this happened i force shut down my latop. Ever since then sporadically the mouse will start playing  up and clicking onto things etc. Everytime this happens I immediately shut down. I have been to Apple 3 times and had my computer wiped but it still happens. trackpad has been tested and is fine. I have called my internet provider and they say nothing looks out of the ordinar. Called a non emergency police number and other than advising me to change passwords and Bank details, which I had already done, no one can help me. I have adjusted my computer security settings, unplugged my internet cables etc. I literally can't think what else I can do to try and fix this. I work freelance design and my laptop is so important, I'm getting so frustrated that nobody can help!! please get in touch if you can help me!! Thanks a lot.

  • The screen on my MacBook has been flickering and shaking up and down. It starts flickering, shaking, gets 'pixelated,' then eventually begins to fade to white and freezes. Restarting sometimes helps, but only temporarily. Why is this? How can I fix it?

    The screen on my MacBook has just started flickering and shaking up and down while I am using it. The screen starts flickering, shaking, gets pixelated, begins to freeze, and eventually fades to white. Why is it doing this? How can I fix it?
    It is a newer MacBook, just over 1 year. It is well cared for, hasn't been dropped, etc. I don't want to pay for expensive repairs for such a new computer, and I certainly can't afford a new one!
    I've tried updating my system like the Support page suggested, but no improvement. The problem started just the other day, and is progressively getting worse.
    .... as I typed this, it did it again. Only, this time it did not flicker and shake, but got 'pixelated' (pixels came up checkered-like darkened and lightened). It did this for about 2 minutes and then stopped after I did not touch the computer.... Now it is flickering... HELP!

    it means that it is not a hardware issue.  Other then that, Im not too sure.  Sorry I can't help you any further, but Im sure others members of this forum will read your question and be able to help you.  Good luck

  • My ipod has been dropped and dented on the side and screen cracked. after i replace the screen will it still work?

    any ideas?

    Dropping an iPod + a dent on one side is no big deal at all
    It can be a bid deal if the size(dimensions) of the iPod has changed. Although chances of that happening are very less or even 1 in a million; so you can very well go ahead and replace the screen.
    I am taking into consideration that the touch function still works - even with the shattered screen!
    Good Luck.
    Please rate helpful posts. Thanks!

  • Will the apple store fix a phone that has been dropped and will no longer turn on?

    I dropped my iphone. The screen shattered, but the phone worked for about 30 min. After 30 minutes the phone won't turn back on.  I can tell that the screen is loose from the housing on the upper left side of the phone. The phone is an Iphone 6 16gb gold.

    Take it to an Apple Store and avail yourself of the out of warranty replacement option.

  • This has been dropped and now has a white screen

    My daughter dropped her 4th generation i pod touch and now half the screen is white, what should be the fix for this?

    The $99 is the exchange price for an 8, 16 or 32 GB 4G iPod. It is $199 for a 64 GB one.
    Some users have posted here that sometime the white screen from dropping is due to a lose connection. Try Googling.
    Yu can send it to Apple. See:
