You can go to El Capitan, as you would to Sierra. Download from the App Store. You should be able to do.

  • I have a macbook pro 2009 environment.  Upgrading ram 8 GB and it becomes extremely hot.  Never done with 4 GB. Only using a Firefox window.

    Just upgraded from 4 GB to 8 GB of Ram.  It now becomes extremely hot very quickly.  Has never done this before. Is that what I can do to reduce this heat.

    Do you have what brand of RAM installed? Some brands will interrupt in modern Macs.

    It is possible that you hit a cooling fan connector while improving the RAM. Find the system of installation/restore disks accompanying you MBP and use them to run Apple Hardware Test. Instructions here:

    OS X Yosemite: use the Diagnostics of Apple or Apple Hardware Test

    That will be displayed if a fan has trouble.

  • MacBook Pro 2009 with slow SSD on El Capitan

    Hi all

    I recently put on the upgrade to El Capitan of Mountain Lion, that my Macbook Pro 2009, updated with a crucial v4 SSD and 8 GB ram, was very happy.

    Had a very difficult installation that hung a few times, but finally got it set up after resetting the PRAM.

    Since he has been very, very slow - beachball right turns and towers - opening an application are a 5 minute job. Printing takes 10. The SATAII connection shows as being to 3 GB, so it should be good. Any other El Capitan on a 2009 MBP running seem happy with it. I activated the trim, it made no difference.

    I was not able to find someone else in line with the same config or problem, so grateful if someone has experience - I was wondering if it is worth getting an SSD different, or even the original HDD back in?

    Thank you!

    When you see a beachball cursor or the slowness is particularly bad, note the exact time: hour, minute, second.

    These must be run as administrator. If you have only one user account, you are the administrator.

    Run the Console application in one of the following ways:

    ☞ Enter the first letters of his name in a Spotlight search. Select from the results (it should be at the top).

    ☞ In the Finder, select go utilities ▹ of menu bar or press the combination of keys shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

    ☞ Open LaunchPad and start typing the name.

    The title of the Console window should be all Messages. If it isn't, select

    SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ all Messages

    in the list of logs on the left. If you don't see this list, select

    List of newspapers seen ▹ display

    in the menu at the top of the screen bar.

    Each message in the journal begins with the date and time when it was entered. Highlight date back to the time you noted above.

    Select the messages entered since then until the end of the episode, or until they begin to repeat, whichever comes first.

    Copy messages to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command + V.

    The journal contains a large amount of information, almost all this is useless to solve any particular problem. When you post a journal excerpt, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.

    Please don't dump blindly thousands of lines in the journal in this discussion.

    Please do not post screenshots of log messages - text poster.

    Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

    When you post the journal excerpt, an error message may appear on the web page: "you include content in your post that is not allowed", or "the message contains invalid characters."

  • MacBook pro 2009 with new SSD try to clean install Yosemite or TM disaster restoration.

    Hello.

    I think this is going to be a difficult discussion.

    Unibody MacBook Pro 2009. Original Apple HDD with Yosemite 10.10.5.

    Two months ago, that my HARD disk is dead.

    I installed a new SATA II Toshiba 1 TB HARD drive and through the recovery of TM all went well.

    A couple of weeks, my 'new' SATA II Toshiba 1 TB HDD started to scratch a little (I mean literally zero while reading/writing), so I thought he would die soon again. This time, I decided to buy an SSD in order to have better performance and superior durability.

    So I bought a Toshiba 248 Gb SSD. I'm not a big fan of Toshiba, but where I live, it's the SSD only I found in the store.

    I removed the old HDD, I installed the new SSD and where my nightmare starts.

    First of all, I tried with a new Installation of USB from Yosemite. I followed all the passages and the installation completed in about 9 days. Yes you read that right: 9 days. The progress bar runs for 9 DAYS.

    At the beginning I obviously interrupted the first couple of facilities when the progress bar was like "12 minutes at the end" for three or four hours, but then I read in many articles and support threads that it is quite usual installation seeks stuck for hours or days, but if you open the log console computer is always something. So I gave him his time and the third or the fourth installation I waited my NINE DAYS to be finished.

    Then when the installation ended the restarted mac of himself and is stuck at the loading screen with his beautiful Apple and the progress bar frozen at about 50%.

    I froze for about 4 or 5 hours of average.

    I found a few articles that sometimes happens, and all you have to do is to force the computer to shut down and start again. So I tried to force the shutdown by holding down the power button and after the reboot it just keeps starting with and stuck at first infinite progress bar.

    So I reboot on CMD + R to get a clue, if I got in trouble on the SSD or what. I run disk utility and found that on my SSD were about 290,000 files and many files as the Yosemite was finally installed. I tried to check the permissions, but it says less than a minute and then got stuck at halfway to complete 15 minutes, so I stopped it.

    After that I think 4 or 5 attempts to start new fresh install on my Yosemite and clean, I reset the SSD erase decided to start all over again.

    I died a little inside while doing it. Same as the erasure was so f * king quick to finish! (about 50 seconds, sonofa 'byte').

    Then I tried to not reinstall Yosemite again (the nightmare of 9 DAYS still has me) but I have tried a new way: recovery of TM.

    Just to say my original TM backup was about 340 GB and my new SSD is 248 only while it was quite clear he wasn't.

    I connect my external TM drive to another computer and I worked the ' delete all backups of * file * ' to get a smaller backup TM.

    Now, I moved a lot of things outside the TM backup and the new dimension of the TM backup is about 90 GB (I want to say that the whole folder backups.backup is about 90 GB), in fact I moved the other stuff was also inside the external Western Digital drive and is now free space Go 910 (, hence the content of the WD is just the TM backup folder this weight about 90 GB), but I still have the 'this drive doesn't have enough space to restore your system.', it's totally A LIE.

    Never mind. I accepted the idea that sometimes even computers are ashamed of themselves and begin to tell lies. I can handle. There was a holy man in the history without any sin. So, ok, no problem. I'm not upset or anything. I can get over it (mf you little liar!).

    Think of manually restore the files that I needed once I have a BONE in my new SSD, I used the same external disk to create a new backup from another computer, my Mac Mini TM. Everything went well and I got a new Mac Mini TM backup about 60 GB (it's much less than 248 GB of my new SSD).

    I reboot the Macbook again to try to restore the backup, Time Machine of Mac Mini and everything seems to work, except for:

    -progress initially said about 650 hours needed to complete the restoration ago.

    -I went to sleep and let the machine itself working together on the restoration and when I woke up this morning I found that the rest of the time was "fair" 52 hours.

    -J' was a little happy to see this, until the Rainbow rolling ball appears. Everything got stuck again. I force shutdown and then try to restore it.

    Now it works again and the remaining time is close hours 672 (and growing). I'll give it another chance. We'll see.

    Now, I have four questions to ask you:

    1. you have an idea (with the exception of a curse or a matter of black magic) WHY all this happened? And of course if there is something wrong and I can work to fix it otherwise?

    2 are there special settings to enable/disable/configuration/whatever to create works faster still to understand that it doesn't properly before discovering this NINE DAYS or 672 HOURS right now?

    3. when we agreed that something like that was acceptable? I used to be a project leader in the world of ICT and in 20 years I NEVER, I say NEVER, released a product/app/site Internet/solution that considers that an option taken 9 DAYS to install or something like that. NEVER. Do not forget that we are talking about Apple and an operating system. I think Windows is laughingly taking revenge.

    4. do you think that for me it is time to let Apple and go back WIN + PC? It's quite frustrating and I use the computer to WORK, not to play games video and this is not the kind of operativity expect after paying a little more for material, a little more for software, a little more to be part of what it is supposed to be the one that had the best choice (index not be not it kills me).

    I thank in advance for any help/tip, you can provide.

    Alberto

    This is a fairly long post. What I would say is:

    1. the next time get a hard drive from a company with a good reputation like Samsung (best SSD ever, I have several internal parts and a laptop EVO). I get them shipped.

    2. as you use the Mini, the recovery partition allows you to install a new copy of Mac OS X, and then use the Migration Wizard to move your stuff.

  • U2715H, MacBook Pro 2009 connection problem,

    Hello

    You just bought a U2715H, which is beautiful when you work with my MacBook Pro 2009. When I first set up, using the mini-DV to DV cable the minitor showed no link. Once again the connection several times the monitor came to life and everything was fine. Then I have experienced intermittent flicker - it would be turned off, turns on for a while, then turns off. After a few minutes he would return. I see that some people have had this problem, but I don't know what is the cause or the cure. I tried to run the diagnostics of the manual, and these were unremarkable. Now, having completed these tests I have re-attached the cable and I get zip. Recommendations on the cause/remedy? thx a lot

    Alan

    Unfortunately, Dell does not validate the test / most of our models of monitors ports on Apple hardware and software. Then, it will be a better idea.

    You wrote mDV to DV. I think you meant the mDP to DP cable U2715H? Based on the U2715H image below, you connect that way?

    MacBook Pro CDM on--> U2715H mDP to DP--> DP U2715H # 5 cable

    The U2715H is expected to ship with DP disabled 1.2. You can try to open the U2715H Menu OSD (On Screen Display page 26) - view and see what's on DP 1.2. I doubt that this older Apple can support 1.2 DP, but you can try enabling it and see what happens.

    You should also post on the Apple Discussions Forum and see if they can offer some insight or the troubleshooting steps.

    I have a Macbook Pro (17-inch late 2011) is fully compatible with El Capitan and Maverick. I'm a little hesitant to upgrade. Tried before with e lCapitan and was NOT successful Please HELP

    Why has been upgraded to El Capitan failed before?

    The only problem is that some applications require the upgrade and some devices that connect to the computer require updated drivers up-to-date. The problem is that for some devices and applications updates are not available and so they do not work with El Capitan.
