    How to free up RAM memory in my macbook pro

    In the current Mac OS x versions, Apple realized that the FREE RAM is not useful for anything whatsoever. What is needed is "instantly available RAM", and they began to be implemented in a number of ways. Free-ing RAM is no longer applicable.

    Some of your RAM may be used by an element called cache. These are copies of files read previously, in the hope that you will need to see again them soon. This RAM is said to be immediately available when an Application makes a request for the new RAM. In addition, little RAM is compressed. If it is referenced, Mac OS X can decompress a lot faster than to a new reading of the disc.

    The important point to look at the activity monitor is graphics memory. If it is not green, you may have to look more carefully at how you use your Mac and its RAM. The telltale signs that you need more are using PageOuts or Swap (but these counters start at zero at the start, so if you have worked for days, some will have invariably been used).

    If you experience a kernel panic, then the above is not very useful. We need to see the panic log: Mac OS X-how to connect to a kernel panic. You should visit The FAQ XLab and read the FAQ on the diagnosis of the kernel panics. See also, How to fix the kernel panics after installation of OS X updates | MacIssues and OS X-all panicking kernel.

    Your diagnostic information suggest that panic can be linked to the use of FireFox. Try to start in Safe Mode. If you have no panic, then start combing through your third party applications or installed in the modules for the problem.

  • MacBook Pro Support - please help

    My MacBook Pro is in repairs since one and a half years. The problem is continuous Frost, blue and pink, fuzzy screen. Tech Center have already changed the card logic 4 times, keyboard, speakers, high & low Carter, battery and an optical drive in year 1. The last repair has been there a month where they replaced the logic board again, and now, the problems started again - freezing, pink/blue screen flashing while watching videos online, speed reduction (literally everything in slow-mo), fan operates at its maximum speed, and all this happens when only one or two browser windows open without any comprehensive process running on it. In addition, it was formatted several times over the past year. Whenever I have contact support they go through the same process again and again. Please let me know if there is any way I can communicate with upper management to find a solution, I'm really frustrated and tired with the product and the process. Any help would be appreciated.

    Feature: MacBook Pro (retina, mid-2012)

    OS x: El Capitan Version 10.11.14

    Thank you.

    Dear Sir: we are only a user forum. Apple doesn't have much to do with us at all. That being said, you can do something. Contact Apple directly for help. Save all documentation and be polite and patient. IF you have Applecare you may be in luck. Apple CAN and MAY in its sole discretion will replace a Mac that had a lot of repairs and still does not work properly. The opinion I wrote CAN and in capital letters. This does mean that it is possible, but not 100% guaranteed. If you bought your MacBook pro with a credit card, your warranty may have been extended. Perhaps, it is covered by home insurance...

    Anyway, you have nothing to lose by trying... Have you tried to go to this place "Tech Center" and asking to speak to a Manager or supervisor?

    just a suggestion

  • How to connect MacBook Pro Bluetooth?

    In my MacBook Pro, it has the BlueTooth device and I would like to use to synchronize with my E71 Nokia with Nokia PC Suite on XP.

    However, when I turn directly on Apple BlueTooth USB Host Controller on VMWare, XP cannot connect it as there is no driver.

    I installed VMware Tools, but looks like it does not BlueTooth driver. If so, should I then allow VMWare XP install the Apple Blue tooth?


    So that the device bluetooth, webcam iSight, IR receiver and card internal memory to your Macbook Pro to work in your comments, you will need to install the boot camp drivers in your virtual machine.

    You can find the drivers on your OS X original installation DVD.

    After that, you can connect to these devices as if they were of USB devices.

    Your virtual machine should not be a boot camp VM for this to work, it's just that the drivers you need must be installed if your VM is a version of boot camp windows.

  • Host of XP with 4 GB of Ram - how much memeory can I connect to all virtual machines?

    I am running 2 VM (XP Pro - 32-bit)) on the XP Pro - 32-bit host (running Server 2.0).  I know there is a restriction on the host computer using only 3 GB of it, but I was wondering if the virtual machines have this limitation.  Example - if I assign 1.5 GB for each of 2 virtual machines, that is to say 3 GB used my VM 2 - will be the other 1 GB can be used by the host?  Alternativle, could I run 3 VM each with 1 GB and then the host would use the 1 GB remaining?  Or anything running on the system limited to 3 GB?

    I noticed when creating VM will occur, he says that I can attribute something like 4096MB before the exchange of memory?  Seems weird to me.  Any info on how memory is managed is useful!  I am not concerned about performance problems... I understand the limitation of the who simply want to understand whether or not the last 1 GB of ram is even used.  Thank you!

    in fact, you don't have to worry about this

    the VM process will be spread in all of your CPU/cores/HT etc.
