    Mac Pro 3,1 Random Shutdown Problem

    Thanks! I can "replace a part" if that will solve the problem or prevent something "bad" from happening. I am not sure what it would be other than the logic board since that is what the battery connect to. Replacements cost ~$300 which is less than a new computer of course! I am a little...

    Mac Pro 3,1 Random Shutdown Problem

    Hmmmm. . . . Let the Macbook run along during the night. Stayed booted. No shut-down. Tried a reboot. Success! :D So now the final test: t3h d34dly Shutdown! No boot! :confused: You have to disconnect the battery. Once you reattach the powercord, it starts to boot. So it is if by...

    Do you like to read?

    Indeed on actual hardcovers. I tend to read nonfiction. The subjects would probably bore the hell of everyone else. Okay, I got hooked on the books that form the basis of The Expanse series. Imagine if Fat George the Jets Fan [George Martin – Ed.] could actually finish a book in a decade and...

    What Song Are You Playing Now?

    So there was this British television show in the mid–2000s. A DCI gets hit by a car and wake up in the early seventies. The title? Of course, it is the song on his iPod which becomes a cassette tape when he wakes up: I like this version, all due respect to the Not-Yet Thin White Duke. There...

    Mac Pro 3,1 Random Shutdown Problem

    You may have the same problem I just developed. My Mac is as in my signature. Suddenly, the Mac turned off. I rebooted, it worked doing the normal surfing for underaged lichen porn . . . shut off. This was with the power cord connected. Would not turn on again! With the power cord connected...

    No disk when installing Mac OS x?

    Frankly, everything after 2011 proved superfluous. This latest was an unhelpful LOOK AT ME temper-tantrum.

    Mac Pro 2008 El Capitan Kernel Loop

    Have you checked your RAM? Long ago, I had on a previous machine one of two chips go bad. This meant frequent kernel panics particularly when using applications that can use suddenly lots of memory like browsers. The bad news is, back then, TechTools Pro consistently claimed the RAM was fine...

    Drving On Left Side Of The Road

    If you were older, you would have been stationed prior to, say, the early 1970's when Japan drove on the correct side of the road as punishment for picking a fight with a nuculer [Stop that!--Ed.] superpower . . . and raping Nanking, Korea, Bataan, Astro-Boy, et cetera. This continued into the...
