Rispondi a "My Mac isn’t turning on"So, typically it’s not meant to reset using an external hard drive, but what typically happens is that it updates during the day, and may have saved a critical file to you external HD! So, when you tried to turn it back on it went and said “screw you!” That’s ok, you can simply hard re-set the device, and to do this effectively you need to let it power down to about 5% battery. Then you need to hard reset, first try Command ‘R’ and it should take you to a OS reboot screen, if that fails Option-Command-P-R. Now realize that if you let this occur it will wipe your drive clean. So if you want you can Command-Shift-Power to hard shut down, and sometimes this works. Turn it back on, let the battery drain completely, and plug in and try again. Hard reset again and you should have resolution. Otherwise, unscrew the door (the bottom of the computer) and disconnect the battery first, restart and if that fails disconnect the SSD. This should be your last resort as it is a software issue and will need a soft ware...
Rispondi a "interchanging parts with iPod classic 6th and 7th gen"Yes, but you have to realize that the HDD will run slower than desired and might lag. It’s like putting top end components of a Ferrari into a Pinto. Possible, yes, worthwhile - maybe not. As you change parts out and interchange other part you may need to secure them using a third party adhesive (use tape, not glue), and other components will need to be upgraded or changed to fit the case too. If you have two ipods it would be better just to buy the needed parts and install. Now if your goal is to have a bit of fun, give it a try and see if it loads up and works. The worst thing that can happen is you either bugger up a part and need to replace it (for a whole 13 bucks), or it just doesn’t work, and you will have learnt something new.
