How do Factory Reset 2010 MacBook Pro of El Capitan?

I was recommended a 'clean install' (reset factory default) by a user here to improve the speed of My MacBook Pro. However, in trying to follow the instructions provided (Figure 2), I am told that I am not so much (Figure 1). How should I proceed?

I intend to bring my computer to the Apple Store to get the battery maintenance and upgrade from 4 GB to 8 GB of RAM, as two suggested here El Capitan.

Figure 1. You cannot use this version of the application "Installer Mac OS X.app" with this version of the OS X. [El Capitan] you "install Mac OS X.app' 23.1.1.

Figure 2. Installation instructions for the installation DVD Mac OS X about restoring the computer to the factory settings said to double-click on the icon to install Mac OS X.

  • 2010 MacBook Pro with El Capitan will not run Apple hardware Tests

    I have a MacBook Pro with El Capitan 2010 installed (10.11.1). He gave me refresh issues such as refresh very slow on the desktop and in the three different browsers, which eventually would crash when I tried to run the videos. I have reset the PRAM. Then ran first aid and received a message ' Mac HD corrupted and needs to be repaired. Tried to run first aid Mode safe, so I started it as such and first aid, then ran with an OK message. Then I tried to run Apple Hardware Test online with D at the start but he would go directly to the grey screen with Apple and would not be executed that the AHT even through I've tried several times. I have not seen anyone with this problem. Any ideas?

  • How can I reset my Macbook Pro without reinstallation disk?

    I bought a Macbook Pro opportunity, but the seller has not provided the recovery disc. How can I reset my system? Can I change the apple ID and continue working?

    Hi Paul, you can't edit the Apple ID and keep working, because the Mac is always on with Apple ID from the previous owner, which means, you will not be able to download updates, or to do something that requires an Apple ID.

    The original owner should have wiped the hard drive and reinstalled the OS X.

    You must erase the disc, or you will be forever stuck with his Apple ID and cannot upgrade, enter your Mac or use other features. Back up your data first. then follow the steps in this topic to Apple Support under "wipe your hard drive and reinstall OS X. It will be re - install the original operating system and you will upgrade to the latest operating system.

  • Slow Internet - mid-2010 MacBook Pro w / El Capitan

    So I have a MacBook Pro 15 mid-2010 "running OS X El Capitan." A week ago my internet started running very slowly, until the point where it's impacting on my ability to get the work done. The speed seems to be the same if I'm at work or at home and if I connect via WIFI or connect directly to the router.

    I was reviewed in the nets of support without success. I have reset the PRAM and the SMC which seems to help briefly, but then the internet speed slowed considerably again in 30 minutes approximately.

    In addition, do not know if it of related or not, but I opened the Terminal today to try a solution suggested and noticed that my root directory is: ' melissas-iphone: ~ scottnewman$ ". I have absolutely no idea how melissas-iphone bears on my MacBook, and nobody in my family or connected to my Apple ID named melissa.

    The help of this community would be much appreciated!

    Hello scnewman!

    I would definitely internet speeds when I'm on my Mac to act normally, too.  It makes it that much better.  Two resets are good to try.  If you haven't done so already, you can run the Apple Hardware Test from the MacBook Pro to rule out other problems: using Apple Hardware Test - Apple Support

    After this, you can create a new user to check if it's a large system or a specific user: How to test one question in another account on your Mac - Apple Support

    I have a Macbook Pro 2015 retina and a bolt of lightning 27 screen.

    I use Logic Pro X

    How can I keep the Macbook Pro closed on a stand?   without opening it to activate the market every time I use it?

    I've seen many people do.

    And it will do no harm to Logic Pro?

    Yes, you can continue to use your MBP as long as an external monitor, keyboard, mouse/trackpad are connected.  No problem at all.  Use it as usual.  A lot of use do this every day.  LPX will be fine.  Just be sure to save your work before you leave, before switch to "standby" mode.

  • How to factory reset iPad without ITunes?

    Recently, (today), I've updated to latest iOS for my iPad Air. While making a password, I wrote very fast because I have would be turned off. My mother called me for breakfast, so I left it there.

    Just before going to the school, I noticed it turned off and now have to enter a password. I tried until I disabled, and I kept trying and waiting time until what I looked up what to do. I tried to go to recovery mode using iTunes on my laptop (Yes, I plugged my camera), but he continues to have an error. I did it just once and he said she needed a response from my iPad itself.

    So, I would like to know how to factory reset my iPad without iTunes if it is still possible. I saw 10 + forums and websites but none were easy and confuse me a ton.

    Thank you!

  • Mid-2010 Macbook pro crashing

    Hello apple support community! I found a few other discussions on the issue, that I care, but I could not solve this problem. I hope someone here can help.

    I have mid-2010 Macbook pro 10.10.5 Yosemite running. It keeps crashing and goes to a black screen and then restart itself. I was not able to nail down to a specific part of the software at the source of the problem. I already uninstalled other software I found by searching for BOOT_TIME in the console that was causing the computer to restart. When I searched BOOT_TIME this time and looked at the first crash before the reboot, it says this:

    21/12/15 6:43:57.000 PM kernel [0]: Google Chrome it (card: 0xffffff801a9a8d20) triggered DYLD shared region unnest for card: 0xffffff801a9a8d20, 0x7fff88a00000-> 0x7fff88c00000 region. While it is not abnormal for debuggers, this increases the system memory footprint until the target ends.

    21/12/15 6:43:59.351 PM Google Chrome support [528]: CGAffineTransformInvert: singular matrix.

    Chrome is the origin of the problem? It seems that whenever an accident occurs, it is internet related navigation. Any help is appreciated!

    see you soon

    Pete

    The problem is probably due to the discrete GPU failure. Download gfxCardStatus 2.3 and use it to disable the discrete GPU. It is of a temporary workaround until you get your motherboard replaced.

    Oh, get rid of Chrome.

  • Install a video processor in mid-2010 Macbook pro?

    Hello

    I'm trying to get my computer to run a video game that says it requires 1 GB of video processing. My 2010 Macbook pro has a NVIDIA GeForce 320 M 256 MB graphics card that I'm sure is a built-in Cardinal Ive read a lot about the possibility of using the integrated or discreet card. I'm not very good with computers, so I'm not exactly what this means entirely, but I'm wanting to know if it is possible to install a new video card or "Amp up" is my current card (for a lack of a better term).

    Thank you very much!

    Sincerely,

    Colby

    In short, no..

    You're welcome to try, but the robots controlled by computer performed the critical weld who put the custom-selected graphics chip on the logic board.  The OSX image has the correct drivers for the graphics chip on the logic board.  You must remove and then re - solder a new chip that has the same pinout as the original, then you need the driver for the graphics chip in the OSX image.

    Especially on a Board of logic that was never designed to be compatible with the current-technology graph.

    Mbit/s are not designed to be game systems.
