How do you determine early from late 2006 MacBooks?

We need to replace the battery in a 2006 Macbook but don't know whether it's an early 2006 or late 2006. How do we determine this (for this purpose as well as any other purpose?)

Every white or black plastic case MacBooks except the Late 2009 and Mid 2010 Unibodies used the same battery. It's easily removable with a coin to unlock it.
Shut down the computer. Disconnect any cords connected to the computer.
Turn the computer over.
Locate the battery latch on one side of the battery.
Use a coin to turn the latch a quarter-turn clockwise. The battery should pop up slightly.
Lift the battery out.
Installing the battery:
Place the right side of the battery into the battery compartment at an angle, as shown below.
Gently press the left side of the battery down until it sits flat.
While holding the battery down, use a coin to turn the latch a quarter-turn counter-clockwise. The battery should lock into place.

  • How can I stream video from a 2006 MacBook Pro (1,1)

    I have a MacBook Pro Intel Core Duo from ~2006 (version 1,1) and I'm trying to figure out how to stream video to my TV. Is there a solution via Apple TV?

    Hey rattlesnake,
    Thanks for the question. I see that you are running Mac OS X 10.6.8, which is compatible with the latest version of iTunes (11.1.2):
    Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now
    Once you have installed the latest version of iTunes, you can utilize AirPlay from iTunes to an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation):
    iTunes: Using AirPlay
    To stream music or videos from your computer to an Apple TV or AirPort Express:
    1. Connect your computer and Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
    2. Open iTunes.
    3. Locate and click the icon to the left of the iTunes LCD window.
    4. Select your Apple TV, AirPort Express, or AirPlay-enabled speakers or receivers from the list of available devices that appears and begin playback.

      3. Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
      4. Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag
           it to the Destination entry field.
      5. Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to
          the Source entry field.
      6. Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the external backup drive. Source means the internal startup drive.
    This process will first erase the external drive. The result is a bootable backup on the external drive.

  • How do you send photos from iphone to macbook using blutooth

    I have an iphone (who doesn't??). The phone is the iphone3 16GB. I am wanting to send photos from the iphone to my macbook using blutooth. I used to do this easily with my old nokia. surely this new phone can do it too??
    thanks in advance

    Unfortunately the iPhone does not support Bluetooth File Transfer so it cannot be done.
    The easiest way is to e-mail it to yourself. AT home on Wi-Fi this would be far faster than using Bluetooth that only has a 700Kbps speed

  • I replaced my hard drive on my late 2006 Macbook Pro.  I tried to do a reinstall of Tiger 10.4.5 from my start up disk.  I get an error that states "can't install on this computer." HELP

    I replaced my hard drive on my late 2006 Macbook Pro.  I used the disk utility and erased the drive and formatted it to OSX Journaled .  When I tried to install the OS from the start up disks I got the error "Can't install on this computer.  I have verified the drive.
    I have used Super Duper to copy my old drive to my new drive.  But I wanted to do a fresh install.  How do I go about this? 

    Did you do the Super Duper clone before you tried to reinstall the OS? If so, the original install disc is likely earlier than 10.4.11, and that may be why you are getting the message.
    When trying to reinstall the OS, did you select the "Archive and Install" option? If not, you might try that. Here's a link that might help:
    Good luck!

  • How do you clean safari from virus displaying ads?

    how do you clean mac from virus displaying ads?

    There is no need to download anything to solve this problem.
    You may have installed one or more of the common types of ad-injection malware. Follow the instructions on this Apple Support page to remove it. It's been reported that some variants of the "VSearch" malware block access to the page. If that happens, start in safe mode by holding down the shift key at the startup chime, then try again.
    Back up all data before making any changes.
    One of the steps in the article is to remove malicious Safari extensions. Do the equivalent in the Chrome and Firefox browsers, if you use either of those. If Safari crashes on launch, skip that step and come back to it after you've done everything else.
    If you don't find any of the files or extensions listed, or if removing them doesn't stop the ad injection, ask for further instructions.
    Make sure you don't repeat the mistake that led you to install the malware. It may have come from an Internet cesspit such as "Softonic" or "CNET Download." Never visit either of those sites again. You might also have downloaded it from an ad in a page on some other site. The ad would probably have included a large green button labeled "Download" or "Download Now" in white letters. The button is designed to confuse people who intend to download something else on the same page. If you ever download a file that isn't obviously what you expected, delete it immediately.
    Malware is also found on websites that traffic in pirated content such as video. If you, or anyone else who uses the computer, visit such sites and follow prompts to install software, you can expect more of the same, and worse, to follow. Never install any software that you downloaded from a bittorrent, or that was downloaded by someone else from an unknown source.
    In the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences, select the General tab. The radio button marked Anywhere  should not be selected. If it is, click the lock icon to unlock the settings, then select one of the other buttons. After that, don't ignore a warning that you are about to run or install an application from an unknown developer.
    Still in System Preferences, open the App Store or Software Update pane and check the box marked
              Install system data files and security updates (OS X 10.10 or later)
              Download updates automatically (OS X 10.9 or earlier)
    if it's not already checked.

  • How do you transfer photos from laptop to ipad air?

    How do you transfer photos from your laptop to ones ipad air?

    You transfer photos during a sync with iTunes.
    First organize your photos. If you're using a Mac use iPhoto to create photo albums. If you're using a PC organize your photos by creating a main photos folder. Inside of that folder creat folders and sort photos into topics or dates. Do not create any additional folders inside the first nested folder.
    Then start iTunes on your computer. If you don't have iTunes on your computer download it form Apple it's free. If you already have iTunes make sure it is iTunes 11.1 or later. If it is an earlier version of iTunes update it.
    Start iTunes on your computer and connect your iPad. Select your iPad in iTunes. Then select Photos from the row of tabs that are presented.
    You can choose to sync photos from iPhoto or navigate to your main photo folder. Then select to sync all photos or select just the albums you want on your device.
    Finally click apply or sync at the bottom of the iTunes screen on your computer.
