Should all memory slots on my imac have the same amount of memory

should all memory slots on my imac have the same amount of memory

For your model, that would mean to match them horizontally; in newer iMacs with vertical RAM installation, they should be matched: slot 1 + 3, and slots 2 + 4 (which, oddly enough, will result in the same picture if your check the RAM in system info).

  • Do 20" iMacs have the same Video Humming as 24" models ?

    I'm at the end of my tether, now on my 5th replacement of the 24" due to different problems:
    1. Loud Humming noise when video dimmed, and sometimes all of the time. x 4
    2. Broken SuperDrive x 2
    3. Scratches and black marks on the case x 2
    4. Vibrating Case x 2
    Most of the 24" models I have had swapped out made the "Humming Noise" related to the brightness setting of the screen - to varying degrees.
    I'm sat here close to Midnight, no other noises in the house except for Huuuuuuummmmmm
    I've done a search on the forums, and can't find any mention of these sort of problems on 20", so thought I would ask as I am considering getting one of those instead.
    On a similar vein, does anyone know of problems with the 24" Cinema Display (noise related) as this is my second option (Cinema Display + Mac Mini.)
    Thanks

    Hi Simon
    I share your frustration! I think I responded to your previous post about the black marks you had on your iMac - I had similar on my first 24". I'm currently awaiting delivery of the 6th replacement machine - again, a variety of problems experienced - all of them having the display-dim-hum to varying degrees (one sounded like it was broadcasting a TV testcard signal like in the old days). I think when I posted last, I was awaiting number 5, which arrived... and wouldn't even start - DOA. (Could the saga get much worse, I asked myself!)...
    Amsys collected the iMac, and when they tried to boot it, it worked. They called me to say they were sending it back to me. I told them I would not accept it because it must have an intermittent fault given that I tried for a day to make the thing switch on. He admitted that he had not even investigated any further to see if there indeed was a fault, and agreed that under the circumstances that a replacement should be ordered.
    When I called Apple to report the DOA on the 10th, they told me they were ordering me a new one right away... I waited patiently, but as I didn't receive any confirmation by email, I called a week later and was told that, in fact, they hadn't ordered a replacement. I was put through to Senior Tech Support, who told me that because the iMac had booted for Amsys, that my only course of action was to go to Amsys and retrieve the iMac, since they were not prepared to do anything for me unless I had the iMac in front of me.
    I was in total disbelief. I explained again that this was replacement number 5, and asked to speak to someone senior. He told me that he was the 'best person to speak to' and that he had 'the power to do anything'. His words.
    He then said, look, hear me out and see what you think... He said the best thing to do was to go collect the iMac (and I don't have a clue where Amsys are based), then sit it on my desk, and wait for it to break again... and when it does, he guaranteed that he would replace it with a new machine, with all the possible upgrades it could take. "How does that sound?" he said.
    "Unacceptable," I replied.
    I said you're asking me to go out of my way to retrieve a product I sent back to you because it didn't work... to then use it for business purposes knowing full well that it has a fault... and wait for it to break again - risk losing data, downtime, and income...
    I tried to believe my ears, but couldn't. I managed to keep calm whilst I explained again that Amsys had told me that they would be ordering a replacement. He said he would ring to check.
    He came back to me, and - lo and behold - admitted that indeed, a replacement had been ordered.
    That was the 15th Jan... and after calling every day to chase this, I only managed to get a tracking number 2 days ago - turns out it took a week to build it (where previous replacements have been built in 24-36 hours on 'Priority')... I think if you get a DOA, you go to the bottom of the list - something I've experienced in the past.
    Just as an aside, when I last called Apple to chase this, I was put through to India, and I asked to be given a number for UK/Ireland Customer Support... the representative was unwilling at first, then conceded, and gave me an 0845 number. I called it... and went straight through to Churchill Insurance!!!
    I called Apple back... and this time went through to Greece. I hung up.
    Third time... India again... and the representative was indeed able to help, and found me a tracking number (and that's when I learned that I'd been sent to the bottom of the queue).
    So, iMac 24" number 6 will be delivered on Monday.
    Lord knows how this will continue to unfold... and if it will ever be resolved! I think I've had my fill.
    As for the 23" Cinema Displays - I had 3 of those before the pink colour cast was eliminated, and then there was yellow and blue banding, so I resorted to 20" displays - which have been excellent, and I have 2 hooked up to my trusty G5. I don't know whether the problems with the 23" have been resolved, so wouldn't like to advise on that one. However, back to the screen-dim-hum, the Cinema Displays run perfectly silently in my experience.
    At present, with the iMac situation, I'm seriously thinking about going for a Mac Pro and getting a separate display; though I wouldn't try another 23", I'd probably save up some more and go for a 30" and brace myself for dancing pixels.
    Let's see what Monday's delivery brings.
    All the best, and keep us posted as to how things pan out.

  • All videos I put onto iTunes have the same default year.

    Every time I add a video (not bought from the iTunes Store) to my iTunes Library from my computer it sets the year of the video to 2005. I'd rather have no year at all than an innacurate one, so I'd like to know how to stop this. (The next bit is more detail that needn't be read if you already know the remedy to this problem.)
    I have an idea how it might have started - a while ago I did this: Right Click > Apply Sort Field then I thought I chose Same Year but that option isn't there anymore. I was curious about what sort field did (and still am). However, this was done before I completely rebooted my computer and had to reinstall iTunes, so I'm not sure how it would have carried over (unless the videos from my old iPod  that I put on my new one transferred that).

    If you don't want photo stream to sync your photos between devices go settings > iCloud and uncheck photos, do this on each device.

  • Songs wiped out but same amount of memory

    So,
    Last night I plugged my iPod mini into another computer so we could listen to some music. Everything was fine, but when I tried to listen to music later on (iPod was unplugged from computer) all the songs were gone. The odd thing was that I still have the same amount of memory, like the songs are still there. When I plugged the iPod into my computer, I receive a message that states that my iTunes can´t read the information on the iPod and I need new software. I should state that the other computer had iTunes software which allowed it to play videos, so it must have been a lot newer version than what I have. Is there any way to save the songs without downloading new software? I am in Brazil doing research and really need my music. Thank you for any help anyone is able to give.

    Whats most likly happened is the database on the ipod got corrupt. you can read this artical at yamipod.com and use there software to try and rebuild it since your not home where your PC with the music is http://www.yamipod.com/main/modules/docs/help/corruptedipod.php
    Now if you have access to a PC in brazil with all or atleast most of your music that was on the ipod, Id recommend using that PC to restore the ipod then use iTunes to load it back up

  • How to make all users have the same working environment?

    Hi guys,
    thanks for helping out on this issue.
    Is there a way to set all users on your system to have the same working environment? I believe, as root you can edit the /etc/profile. But when I looked at the file, I was confused. I had no idea where to add stuff because it was a script.
    Please if anyone can help me explain how to customize system wide working environments, I will be very grateful .
    Thank you
    Arrey

    Hi.
    It's not clear what you understand under system wide working environments ?
    /etc/profile it's one possible solution.
    Another way - put custimozed .profile to all users and use customezed */etc/skel* for new users.
    Regards.

  • My dad and i share the same apple ID and now we have the same contacts. Help please

    When my dad got a new phone he got all of my contacts because we have the same apple ID so how do i get my contacts off of his phone and also if he deletes one of my contacts off of his phone it gets deleted off of my phone. Can someone help me? Thank you

    To fix this, one of you needs to migrate to a new, separate, iCloud account.  To do this, start by saving any photo stream photos you wish to keep to your camera roll (unless already there) by opening your my photo stream album, tapping Select, tapping the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward facing arrow, then tapping Save to Camera Roll.  If you are syncing notes with iCloud, you'll need to open each of your notes and email them to yourself so you can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in your new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud), choose Keep on My iDevice and provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create your new account and choose Merge to upload your data.
    Once you are on separate accounts, you can each go to icloud.com from your computer and delete the other person's data from your account.

  • How can I do to have the same contacts in all my devices, pc, iPad and iMac?

    I have severl devices and the last taime I updated my contacts was almos manually. I would Like to be able to have the same contacts in all, pc, iPad, and iMac.
    How can I set it so to get it done through iCloud?
    For instance in my pc ( windows 7 Home Premium ) I use Outlook 2007.
    Thanks for any comment on this.

    switching on iCloud should automatically tell it to merge data with that device and icloud. i'm on a mac but its gotta be the same on all devices and systems.
    when you switch on icloud for Contacts on a PC, it will tell you its merging all contacts with icloud...

    When you connect your iPad or iPod to the Mac, click on the device name in iTunes - don't click on the arrow on the device. Then click on the Music tab in the main window pane. Now you should see 'Sync Music' and all your playlists, artists and albums. Here you mark the checkboxes for what should be synced.

    Hello Albert, see how many of these you can answer...
    See if the Disk is issuing any S.M.A.R.T errors in Disk Utility...
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH7029
    Open Activity Monitor in Applications>Utilities, select All Processes & sort on CPU%, any indications there?
    How much RAM & free space do you have also, click on the Memory & Disk Usage Tabs.
    Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.
    In the Memory tab, are there a lot of Pageouts?

  • I have the same image 200 times on a webpage... how can I relink them all at once?

    Hi, first I'm french and I might not be using the right terms in the 'search engine' as I'm unable to find the answer and I have been looking for more than an hour...
    I unfortunately saved my htm document on my desktop. After putting the file in its initial folder, I realize that all the link for my pictures were broken. I can update them one by one... But I happen to have the same image featured over 200 times on that same webpage... I'm sure there must be a quicker way to relink that image than doing it one by one.
    Thank you for your time.

    You should be able to correct that from the Errors tab on the right-hand side of the site window. It should show up as a Missing File. Select it, then point and shoot at the correct image file in the FIles tab on the left-hand side of the site window.

    Mac OS 10.5 /
    I deleted the " Private" folder ... and emptied the trash. So the folder and its contents no longer exists on my computer at all !!!
    I do have the OS 10.5 dvd that i purchased years ago...
    But my computer will not start from it on its own.
    My question is what is the open source or terminal language code used to tell my mac to look in the DVD rom drive for startup info?  I know that im not the only person in this world who has deleted the "PRIVATE" folder and emptied the trash so it no longer exists on their machine...
    That said theres gotta be a common fix for a Power PC G4 that has the OS X dvd in the rom drive but wont look to it to reinstall the vital contents of the PRIVATE folder.
    Once again there is not a copy of this file or its contents in the recycle bin...
    Also rebooting the machine , pressing and holding the letter C does not prompt the machine to look to the dvd rom drive.
    I was reinstalling pro tools and figured I would make some room by cleaning my computers HD...
    Lol It was a bad choice to delete this file ...
    Thanks guys

    Okay sorry it took forever to respond... But for a while there I gave up on this computer!!!!
    Money's been tight lately , so taking it in to a professional was not yet an option... though I did consider it eventhough.
    Anyway long story short im glad I didnt spend any money because I already had all the tools necessary to fix this issue but was going about it in the wrong way. Okay so here is my scenario and the breakdown... Though this may not fix the issue for everyone :( which *****... But I know we all will have different circumstances.
    Anyway here we go...
    Okay so first things first....  Years ago I purchased the OS 10.5.1 disk ... So that has always been in my possession!!!!
    I realize that some may not have a disk to reflash your OS to your hard drive... but if you do your in luck.
    2ndly ... I had an external harddrive with all of my itunes downloaded music so it was more than okay with me to delete my primary HD because all the important stuff could either be copied over or repathed to be located.
    -------If you dont want to read through the whole story the fix is summed up in the bottom section-------
    Okay so now the SOLUTION!!!!
    By trial and error , and pure boredom I opened up my computer to clean the inside...
    AND
    "Disconnected the primary HD"
    and just because ....... REBOOTED my computer. Just to see what it would do.
    Upon restart and though it looked like it would repeat its usual cycle...
    About 1 minute in to that process my computer froze for about 2 seconds and flashed to the OS installation screen.
    Mind you I havent seen this screen yet... Probably hasnt been since I installed the OS years ago.
    After a bit of trial and error...
    I decided to tell my computer to startup from the OS 10.5 disk located in my dvd rom drive and restarted once again...
    this setting is under
    Utilities / startup disk
    After a little more trial and error ... I realized that I could reconnect the primary HD , restart the machine and return to the OS installation menu.
    So upon this discovery
    I went to the Disk Utility located under Utilities
    Highlighted my primary HD located in the left hand column
    Once highlighted ...
    In the heading section on the right I selected the option
    Erase
    in which I erased My current OS on my primary HD ...
    I used the first option in the list under security... Because it seemed like the least invasive and would take the least amount of time to see if this process would actually work.
    I FORGOT to add something... 
    Another reason why I deleted my primary HD!!!!!
    I forgot to say that it WOULD NOT!!!!! Show up in the STARTUP list as an option...Even After multiple reboots....
    But like clockwork... Once I deleted its name IT SHOWED UP as an option!!!!
    So back to the next step...
    I returned to the STARTUP option under utilities ... And was then able to see MY primary HD now as a startup option...
    But ofcourse it had no name because it we previously erased it.
    So when Clicking my newly erased HD ... I was almost immediately prompted to REINSTALL the OS ...
    Which said it would take about 57 minutes ... But I believe was alot less...
    My issue was resolved ... My computer then stated the install was SUCCESSFUL!!!!!!! :))))))))))) lol ;)
    It was like I was setting up for the first time ;) asking for my registration info...
    The dilemma of deleting the private folder and emptying the trash is finally over resolved. Done ... and no extra money spent!!!!!!!!! 
    Its really crazy that the information for such a simple thing is not readily available. Especially being such a simple fix.
    I know im not the only person who's had this issue , because i've seen numerous posts with similar wording.
    I also know I wont be the last person to have this issue... So I hope this synopsis makes sense.
    -------One more time the fix------
    *Insert your OS dvd into your dvd rom drive.
    *Unplug your primary HD or corrupted startup disk
    *Reboot your machine...
    Upon restart your primary HD will not be recognized...
    * you will then be prompted to select your language.
    Once selected
    *Click Utilities/startup... Highlight the the selection that refers to the OS dvd located in the dvd rom drive.
    * Click restart...
    !!!!!!!!!!Be sure to reconnect your Primary HD Before your computer restarts and you hear the chime!!!!!!!!
    If you do not replug your HD before the chime it will not be recognized.
    In that case restart again.
    Upon restart once again
    *Choose your language...
    *Click Utilities / disk utility
    In the left column select and
    *Highlight your HD ...
    Then towards the top portion / center of the page
    *Click the heading Erase
    Then on the page toward the bottom
    *Click security options
    This will then provide erase options.
    I USED THE FIRST OPTION
    "Dont erase data"...
    *click OK
    * click erase...
    Once erased which should take a few seconds
    *Cancel the disk utility...
    * Click Utilities / startup
    And your newly erased HD should now appear in the list.
    * Select your drive from the list by highlighting
    It should no longer have a name.
    *Once selected, you will then be prompted to restart and install the OS to your newly erased HD...
    Thats it!!!!
    Once everything reinstalls re-add your personal info or registration info and you are up and running.
    Goodluck ;)

  • I'm going to get the new iPhone 5S soon. I also have an iPad. I'm wondering is it best for each device to have the same Apple ID or should each device have a different ID? Pros? Cons? It seems like there is a conflict using iCloud for backup between the 2

    Basically wondering if multiple devices should share the same ID or each to get their own. Such as, how it affects Facetime, backups to iCloud, etc. Thanks. Sorry for the long title.

    Hi matrixxzero,
    In my opinion, you want to use the same Apple/iCloud/iTunes ID on both devices. That is exactly what iCloud is designed for - to keep devices with the same Apple ID in sync. Your Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Safari Bookmarks, Notes, Photo Stream photos, and Documents will all be kept in sync if you have those options set up on both devices under Settings>iCloud.
    Unless you have some reason to not want to have the same information on both devices, then going with a single ID on both is the way to go.
    Cheers,
