How to get airplay to work on macbook pro that is newer than 2011

I have been looking to use my computer to play onto my Apple TV, my Mac Pro is Mid 2012 and running OS X Lion 10.7.5.  Everything that I have seen is telling me that I should be seeing airplay available for my use, unless I am misunderstanding what is being said.  Please help, I am not quite sure what to do about this problem.  Thanks in advance!!

Would the Genius Bar at Apple Store UK do it for free? My mac warranty is expired.
I doubt it
It is a very simple job to do it yourself. remove the bottom of the case, undo the 2 screws that hold the drive in, take it and put te bottom case back on.

    Realize that people that aren't having problems tend not to "brag" that they're doing fine.  Those that are having problems are usually very vocal.  So a lot of the "bad reviews" may just be those that had a problem, not necessarily the real experience of the millions of people that are doing just fine.
    ...and I'm afraid to download it and my computer is 2009, yours runs smoothly?
    I'm running Lion fine on my 2008 MBP (4,1. 2.4GHz C2D, 4GB) and late 2009 Mini (2.0GHz C2D, 8GB.)  Minimum RAM for Lion is 2GB, but IMHO you really want 4GB.  If you have a lot of apps open (or have demanding apps like Photoshop,) then get more RAM if you machine can handle it.
    Also, make sure the rest of your apps or drivers are up to date before upgrading.  Incompatible drivers for things like printers and such are what I've found to cause a lot of stability problems.

  • How do I get files off of a macbook pro that doesn't have a working trackpad or keyboard? Is it possible to connect it to a new macbook pro?

    I spilled water on my old macbook pro and now the keyboard and trackpad no longer work.  I have a new one but want to get some files off of the old one.  What would be the easiest way of doing this.  The old one also has a password so I'm not sure I could get into it anyway.

    You could remove the hard drive and put it into an external enclosure. You can connect it to another Mac via Target Disk Mode and transfer the files you want that way. If you put the drive into an external enclosure you can use Migration Assistant to transfer your Home folder to the new computer.

  • How do I get Snow to work with MacBook Pro running Tiger?

    I have a MacBook Pro running Tiger (obviously), and have been trying to get my Snow base station (a.k.a. Dual Ethernet) to work with it, but couldn't.
    After hours of searching these pages, Apple Support and Google, I found this: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301510
    So...it seems like it can't be done. The question now is...what do I do? The Support page doesn't give me any help
    Anyone have any tips?

    Just to confirm, n5k, the article 301510 says, 'To administer the original AirPort Base Station (Graphite) or second-generation AirPort Base Station (Dual Ethernet) from a Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" computer, you must use AirPort Admin Utility'. It doesn't say it can't be done at all, just that that neither of the Airport Setup Assistants will work.
    I'm having the same problem as you, accessing the Internet from a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.4.6 (yes, obviously) through a Snow Base Station. Now I am wondering if we will be helped by the MacBook Pro SMC (whatever that stands for) Firmware Update which I am downloading now.

  • How do I get support service for my MacBook Pro that was purchased in the U.S. if I'm traveling internationally?

    My MacBook Pro (purchased August 2010) crashed at the beginning of a 2 month trip in India. Whenever I turn it on, I get either a grey screen or the apple logo and then a message telling me to restart my comp (this happens when I try to boot from the disc).  I've done everything short of cracking the case open to reposition the HD, and that's only becuase I can't get my hands on a adequately sized screwdriver.
    Any thoughts?  How do I get my computer services while in India? I'd be okay with shipping, but I can't even get a hold of apple without spending an astronomical amount in cell-phone fees.  Help?

    If this happens when you try to start from the installer DVD, then you have a hardware problem. Getting it repaired in India probably isn't easy to do. You could arrange with Apple to ship back to the US, but you would need to arrange with AppleCare for that.
    You might try Apple's India support numbers: (91) 1800 4250 744 or (91) 80-4140-9000.

  • Does airplay mirroring work on MacBook Pro late 2011 ( Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5)?

    Hi guys,
    I would like to use airplay mirroring on apple tv (3rd generation) with my macbook pro late 2011, unfortunately the airplay option does not appear in the display preferences (see screenshot below). Did someone have this problem before? Please advise!
    Thank you!
    Tial

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    See > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5404 Your computer is compatible with AirPlay Mirroring, but you have to upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion to get AirPlay Mirroring.
    Make a Time Machine backup and/or a clone with Carbon Copy Cloner, open App Store and purchase Mountain Lion. When the download finishes, the installer will appear, so follow the steps to upgrade. To turn on AirPlay Mirroring, select the AirPlay icon in the menu bar or open System Preferences > Displays

  • How to test hardware on an old MacBook Pro that is slowing down.

    I have the very first-gen MacBook Pro 2.0gHz Core Duo, 2gb ram.  I have been using this laptop as my primary since I got it, mostly for development work (Java, Objective-C, Web, etc), but also email, general web surfing, and the occational game (although, not in a while).
    Recently, I noticed things were starting to "slow down".  Well, not slow down so much as things would get long pauses.  For instance, I hit a site in Google Chrome, and the app sits there for like 20-30sec of longer, as if the window is frozen, then *poof*, it draws the page.  Sometime, Chrome will even pop up asking if I want to kill the page.  It is not the only application that seems to be suffering from this, I just spend a LOT of time on the web, so I tend to notice it much more.
    Even more recently, my SpringSource Tool Suite (STS, a custom Eclipse with a bunch of SpringSource plugins) started acting up too.  Mostly when I start the Roo Shell and execute a command, STS (read Eclipse) will show the command as "executing", but it seemed to never run.  I thought it was maybe a problem with STS or the Roo Shell plugin, but yesterday I ran something as a test, then got a phone call and didn't come back for some time.  To my surprise after more than 40min of just sitting there the command ran.  Once it ran, it ran in full, normal speed (the command I ran was to rebuild the Eclipse project files using Maven).  So, what I thought was frozen was merely paused for a long period of time, just like what I was seeing in Chrome.
    So, this has lead me to believe I either have some sort of hardware issue, some sort of heat issue (I have seen this on Wintel laptops where the processor "speed steps" down to almost 33mHz), or some sort of software issue.  I really don't want to have to re-install OS X, if I can avoid it.  I did boot off the original disks that came with my laptop and ran the Hardware Test, but it came back with no errors.  I have iStat Pro installed as well, and the fan speeds are usually around 1800-2000rpm, sometimes jumping to 4000+rpm.  CPU tempuratures report around 151º.  I also ran the Disk Utility off my 10.6 disks.  I do know that my DVD burner no longer burns disks, but it hasn't for more than a year.
    Laptop specs:
      - MacBook Pro, Model MacBookPro1,1
      - OS X 10.6.8
      - 2.0gHz Core Duo w/ 2gb DDR2 RAM
      - Toshiba MK3252GSX 320gb HDD (replacement for factory 120gb HDD over 1.5yrs ago due to space issues)
      - I recently replaced the battery, as the old one had expanded.  I use the laptop on wall power 99% of the time.
    Thanks,
    Mike Bauer

    As mentioned above, I did do this.  What I am not so certain is how intensive this test is.  Stated another way: If this was ran and passed 100%, does this mean everything on my laptop is 100% functional, like the fans, processor, cooling, memory, etc?  The drive also checked out when I did the Disk Utility from the 10.6 install CDs, and the S.M.A.R.T. check indicates no disk errors.
    Maybe I should take it into a Genius and have them look at it.  Just not sure how much that will cost me, and its an old laptop, so I don't want to put too much into it.

  • How Can i connect using Thunderbolt a Macbook Pro with the New iMac

    I bought the new Macbook Pro with Thunderbolt and instead of buying a new external monitor, i am thinking that the new iMac with Thunderbolt is a great idea.
    Is there a cable to connect the Macbook Pro and use as iMac as external monitor, using Thunderbolt.
    thanks

    I understood your question perfectly and the answer is absolutely yes. When you change the iMac into target display mode you underlying operating system continues to run all existing applications. For example in my case if I finished editing some video and am about to enter a lengthy render process or something which may draw lots of resources like hand real, I set it to start on the iMac and then switch it to target display mode to use it as a monitor with my MacBook air in the meantime.
    Only one small caveat in your case though.  Since the target display mode is a feature of OSX (eg the OS interprets the special key stroke and changes the iMac into target display mode) you should make sure Lion server supports the target display mode feature. I don't see a reason why it wouldn't but that's the only thing currently crossing my mind. Keep in mind the compatibilities between ports as noted in my blog. If any of your machines have mini display port and you intend to connect the new iMac in target display mode you will run into issues. In that special scenario, I recommend buying a refurb iMac from 2010 which urtilize the displayport allowing you to use it as a display for all your macs -- those with thunderbolt as well as those with displayport. If you have thunderbolts then definitely go with the thunderbolt iMac.

  • Cannot get Continuity to work with Macbook Pro

    I am unable to receive or make iPhone on my mac.
    They’re both on the same wifi network
    Both connected to iCloud
    Mac is using Yosemite
    iPhone is using latest iOS
    iPhone cellular calls in enabled on phone
    Handoff enabled on mac
    On my iPhone, in "General" settings, there is also no Handoff settings available. Further more, whenever I try to go into iCloud settings on my mac, it takes a while, lags and the spinning wheel comes on for a couple of seconds.
    Just to clarify, I am able to receive calls on my iPad Air with iOs 8 installed.
    ALSO, when I click on iCloud Drive in my finder, the window doesn't change. It stays on "my documents" even though the "iCloud drive" is selected. Both are enable in settings.
    What am I doing wrong?

    I promise you I have iOS 8. I'll attach photos. You'll see there is no handoff option.

  • My WD My Passport SE USB 3.0 works with MacBook Pro but NOT new iMAC?

    The drive works fine on my MacBook and I can see it from the iMAC when I share it.  but the iMac will not recognise it, nothing in Disk Utility, when plugged directly in.
    WD are unable to help as I don't believe there is a USB 3.0 Y cable in the UK and the latest firmware, which supposedly fixes a 'read with Lion OS' issue, does not make a difference.
    Any helps????
    Thanks
    Paul

    I've done dwb's suggestion #3, removing the perfectly good WD bare drive from their perfectly bad enclosures and installing it in an enclosure from Other World Computing. Their enclosures always work; "name-brand" enclosures seem to be very troublesome.
    The cheapest option after resetting the PRAM/NVRAM is to get a powered USB2 hub as in dwb's #2. The Passport must get all power from the computer's USB port and, if you have a lot of USB devices attached, there may not be enough power left to turn the drive. A powered USB hub has an independent power supply so devices attached to it are not competing for power.
    Although I've not tried it, there are positive reports that using Disk Utility to reformat the drive for Macintosh (they are formatted for Windoze when they ship) made the drive behave without resorting to an enclosure or a powered hub.
