• Make sure all the cables in your computer are connected properly. You may have failed to connect a needed power connector to the motherboard or accidentally disconnected a cable to your hard drive. • If you have properly installed the recommended memory and the PC still does not boot or recognisethe memory, you may need to download the latest BIOS from your computer manufacturer's Website. Note: Kingston is in no way responsible for any problems resulting from flashing the BIOS. Flashing the BIOS is merely a troubleshooting suggestion. Customers who flash the BIOS do so at their own risk.
Mar 07, 2017 If you have an old MacBook Pro with one foot in the grave, the single best thing you can do to breathe new life into it is replace its traditional spinning hard drive with a solid-state drive. Solid-state drive; a device that uses solid-state memory to persistently store data, often as a replacement for a traditional hard drive. Because SSDs do not use mechanical seeking to access data, they can provide much higher performance than hard drives especially with random I/O operations.
Excellent site! I`m using a macbook pro mid 2012 to make and perform music in Norway, using Logic pro x, and Main Stage 3, and now need more space for sound files from Logic pro and Main Stage. I guess Samsung 860 pro is the best option. The cheapest I get for 500 GB in Norway is 1899 Norwegian Kroner (235 USD). Then I see a Crucial MX500 1 TB at 2034 NOK (252 USD). Which one would you recommend? Microsoft office 2016 for mac. Space is always good to have, but I guess making and performing music is heavy and demands the best ssd?
My advice essentially remains the same, if the bank account permits, then purchase it. But with SSD storage, more than 8 GB RAM offers small rewards. It is my observation that most users get unnecessarily obsessed by numbers (specifications) than what is warranted. The base model of any MBP will more tha satisfy the needs of the overwhelming amount of users.
After changing my underwear:-P I refitted the old i3 and bingo, booted back up as normal. Anyone know why this would work on a 27' iMac and not a 21.5' one? (I'm going to take the CPU to a PC repair shop and see if they can test it, just to be sure) Cheers, David. Hi, I know its an old thread but maybe will be useful in case someone still tries to upgrade cpu in imac 21.5 mid 2010. So: the i7 870 has TDP of 95W but thats irrelevant the power consumption is of 121W and the 21.5 imac doesn't have the juice for that. The i7 870S (wich is the low-power variant) has the TDP of 82W and squeezes 66.63W from the power source. We have a winner.

I like the idea of using an SSD over a HDD. --- The level of expand-ability is key to what I'm looking for. Even though these things can still be expanded, they still cost nearly twice as much as one built from the ground up. But I guess the monitor might be worth it. --- I would call myself a novice, but I have taken apart an Xbox and other devices completely apart, switched out parts, and put them back together without breaking them.
