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:

  • HT201257 Hi -- I have a late 2011 13" macbook pro that shipped with and runs Lion. Unfortunately, I do not have the install disks with me. Holding down D key does nothing. What can I do?

    How can I run the hardware test on a macbook pro that SHIPPED with lion (never had an earlier OS) without access to the install disks? I am away from them and home for several months. Holding down the D key does nothing.

    Press "Option" and "D" key together.
    "Restart your computer, holding down the “D” key while the computer restarts.After your computer restarts, you should see the Apple Hardware Test chooser screen. If you don’t, Apple Hardware Test may not be available on your computer. You may be able to start Apple Hardware Test from the Internet. Reconnect your computer to the network, and then restart your computer while holding down both the Option and “D” keys."

  • I have a late 2011 15" MacBook Pro with a Windows 7 partion. On both sides of my HD, i cant burn DVDs.

    I've tried Windows Media Player, and Windows Movie Maker on Windows. On Mac, I've tried a few different things including Burn. For some reason i dont have iDVD. In my "About this Mac" it says that my optical drive can burn DVDs. It always goes through the process, then skips to the end and spits out the disk saying it couldnt complete the task. I dont understand why its so difficult these days when burning DVDs used to be so simple.

    I thought about doing what you said above, but unfortunately, I didn't have any spare blank DVD's. However, I was able to sucessfully install Windows & on my Mac. What I did was when I got to the error message, I would cancel the installation and that would return me back to the install now window. At that point, I would take out the flash drive and put it into another USB port. It took a few times, but eventually it recognized the drivers and allowed me to install the software. Remember, once you get past that point, the installation will ask you to choose a drive to install Windows on. Highlight the Boot Camp drive and chose "advanced", and then chose "format" after that. After all of this, it should be smooth sailing.

  • Fans continuously run loud on late 2011 13" MacBook Pro

    Hey All,
    I hav a late 2011 13" MacBook Pro and about a week ago the fans began to run loudly and constantly no matter what I'm doing-whether checking email or running a dozen layers in a Photoshop project. Anyone have any clues? Running Lion, 4 GB RAM--bought an 8 GB kit but not yet installed, would that help? is there a firmware update or something?
    Thanks for any assist.

    i'm having the same problem too, with my early 2011 mbp 13".  recently downloaded iStat pro, and found out that my fans are usually running about 6000rpm, and my CPU temp is above 90.  i'm using preview, word/excel and listening to music. 
    not to beat a dead horse (again) but none of this happened when i was on snow leopard.  i upgraded straight from SL to ML, and a host of problems ensued (mostly battery health/life).  is it something that can be tracked again to a faulty piece of hardware in the system that was highlighted after the OS upgrade?

  • HT201343 I have a Late 2011 model 13' Macbook Pro and i purchased Apple TV because it should support Airplay mirroring.  It says i should have the airplay icon on my menu bar but it does not appear.

    According to the help page i was viewing my Late 2011 13' MacBook Pro should support Airplay Mirroring.  However the airplay icon does not appear on my menu bar like i says it should and when i go to System prefereneces>Display nothing appears there about Mirroring as well (like it says it should).  The help page specifically says that Late 2011 MacBook Pros should support Mirroring etc... 
    Any suggestions?  I'm all ears...

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Airplay needs 10.8 or later, you need to update your operating system.

  • Is it safe to use an 85watt adapter from a 2006, 17" macbook pro on a late 2011 15" macbook pro?

    Hi. My question is pretty much as the heading says :
    Is it safe to use an 85watt adapter from a 2006, 17" macbook pro on a late 2011 15" macbook pro?
    As far as I can tell from googling and searching around, it does appear that it is safe to do so.
    Specifically this page
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2346
    But I just wanted to double-check for confirmation that it is indeed safe to use the adapter from such an old mbook pro in a newer one.
    The wattage is the same.
    I wish to do so as I prefer the T-connector, and my older adapter has a much longer extension cord on it.
    If not I may order another one from ebay.
    Any idea how to check that an adapter from ebay is a true / legitimate / authentic apple adapter?
    Thanks for your help.

    Yes.
    I recommend you buy one directly from Apple. There are many counterfeit power adapters on the market that could damage your MacBook Pro or potentially cause a fire.
    Any idea how to check that an adapter from ebay is a true / legitimate / authentic apple adapter?
    Nearly all of them are, even if the seller insists it is "genuine OEM". Legitimate adapters from eBay are likely to be used, not new. There is nothing wrong with used, as long as you know what you're getting.
    Identifying a counterfeit is possible only through close examination.

  • Is there a way to delete all my info on a late 08 model MacBook Pro

    I Traded my iPad 2 for a late 2008 model MacBook pro, When i first recived it there wasent any install disc or anything of that nature,...There was a small amount of information "residue" of the previous owner scatterd through out, I of course wanted it to be MINE....but alas...Apple makes there MacBooks from what i can tell a single owner notebook...its wasent a problem until now when im in the process of selling it my self, I have no real way to find true,helpful,sound instructions on how i could erase all MY information from the memory,And change the administrator of the mac to maybe a default like state until new owner punches in there info?....Any info on this matter would be Greatly apperciated....at the very least maybe a way to delete things with out a restore?....again i have no disc to help in this....Just the internet and now this Apple support communite

    You need to call Apple, with your serial number handy, and order a set of machine-specific discs that originally shipped with your MacBook Pro.
    After you recieve the discs, following the instructions in How to prepare your Mac for sale.
    Good luck,

  • Looking for 16GB RAM That is Compatible with Late-2011 17" Macbook Pro

    Hi guys,
    I am looking to upgrade the RAM and Hard Drive in my late-2011 17" Macbook Pro. I've already found the hard drive I want to use, but I don't know as much about RAM, and I'm not sure which 16GB (2 x 8GB) kit would be both compatible and give me the best bang for my buck. I am in Canada so any suggestions linking to Canada Computers or NewEgg would be the best! I'd really appreciate any help.
    Thanks,
    Jacob

    First, goto OWC - https://www.macsales.com/
    It has a guide for all things Mac & Memory
    Second, get an SSD as it will speed up your computer tremendously.
    OWC or Crucial are very good Mac-friendly brands.

  • Late 2011 17" Macbook Pro upgrade advice needed

    Hey everybody, I would like to u[grade my Late 2011 17" Macbook Pro.
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    750GB HDD
    OSX 10.7.4
    So after reading on Crucial.com that I could house 16gb ram, despite what apple said, I investigated this and according to people this is tr
    So my next question is, will i be able to fit a 512GB SSD from Crucial into my MBP? THe only reason I feel it's a valid question is I had the option of 1 and 2Tb Hdds WITH a 256GB SSD.
    Thanks for reading everybody

    The only way that you can use both a SSD in your drive bay and another hard drive is to install the hard drive in your optical bay. If you're willing to give up your optical drive, OWC sells kits to do just that.
    Then you could use your external drives for data storage & backups.
    Is this a workable option?

  • I have a Late 2011 Mac Book Pro 17" and I want to install a Samsung 840 EV 2.5 1TB.  What accessories if any do I need?

    I have a Late 2011 Mac Book Pro 17" and I want to install a Samsung 840 EV 2.5 1TB.  What accessories if any do I need? I want to place my order once with all that is needed to install this equipment. 

    No you don't. All currently available commercial hard drives and SSDs have the same SATA connectors in the exact same place.
    As to being plug and play that is up to interpretation. The drive will plug into the cable but then you have to partition and format the drive for the Mac OS X operating system and then install OS X on it or restore from a Time Machine backup or Clone from your original drive to the SSD. Those things aren't necessarily Plug & Play. Not hard, just time consuming. Some more than the others.

  • Modem for 2011 model Macbook Pro

    I have a new current model Macbook Pro (10.6.7) and an Apple brand USB modem, tiny little thing, like a pack of gum with a short USB cable on one end and a phone jack in the other. When I plug the modem in, I get a message saying it can't be used with this computer. There's nothing wrong with it, it works fine on my old Macbook Pro.
    So, is there any way to make it work with my new Macbook Pro? If not, does some other brand/model modem work? Preferably tiny like Apple's, since I use it for travel. (Broadband at home of course.)

    Nope. It just doesn't work with the new models. However, there are any number of third-party USB modems that look just like it. You will find them using Google.

    Ok, so i bought a 16GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM for my late 2011 13" MacBook Pro whose memory runs at 1067 MHz (I was also told that late 2011 MBPs run at 1333MHz, is mine an exception, if so, why?)... Im looking for all possibilities to close the compatibility gap because computer freezes at boot and was wondering if there was anything i could do to get this 16GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM to work at 1067MHz or somehow get my computer to run at 1333MHz?...

    You don't have a late 2011 MB Pro.
    You have a 2010 version.  Your MB doesn't support 16GB.  8GB Max.
    That's what it shows on your about this MAC.
    You need to return the RAM and get 8GB ( 2 X 4GB ) 1066MHz.
    Your system bus is set to 1066MHz.
    You're having issues because you've installed more RAM than your MB can support.  It's only reading 4GB per bank which totals to 8GB and not 16GB.

  • Upgraded my 2010 macbook pro to mountain lion, unable to complete time machine backup using time capsule.  Getting error 112

    Upgraded macbook pro to mountain lion, get the following message
    "the backup disk image "......." could not be accessed (error 112)
    I've tried many of the suggestions from other discussion threads, still unable to get anything to work.  Have 4 other computers backing up to the same time capsule, all of them are functioning normally, however they are not upgraded to mountain lion.
    Suggestions?

    This simple procedure will clear your Time Machine settings, including your exclusion list. If you have a long exclusion list that can't be recreated easily, you may prefer a more complicated procedure that preserves the exclusion list. In that case, ask for instructions. Otherwise, do as follows.
    Triple-click the line below to select it:
    /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.plist
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select
    Services ▹ Reveal
    from the contextual menu. A Finder window should open with a file selected. Copy it to the Desktop. Then move it (the original, not the copy) to the Trash. You'll be prompted for your administrator password. Reboot, recreate your settings in the Time Machine preference pane, and run a backup to test. If TM now performs as expected, delete the file you copied to the Desktop.
