Had the same problem, when I centred the audio then changed volume it would drift to the right. I found going into the Audio Midi app, choosing the correct 2 channel audio out source (what ever the name of your headphones are but not the mic channel if you have one), change the format to 1 channel 16-bit integer, then change it back to 2 channel 32-bit again....

Guys I finally solved it. What. A. Nightmare. It's been 2 stressful months. I hope this helps someone else. So, I used the Mac's Console (never knew it existed) and captured the error as it was happening: coreaudiod HALS_IOa1Engine EndWriting got an error from the kernel trap 0xE00002D7. A quick search showed a lot of articles, everybody with a problem ...

As the Capslock function is entirely software controlled, it cannot be a keyboard fault. To test - System Prefs > Keyboard > Keyboard > Modifier Keys… Switch the capslock key to No Action & the Fn key to Capslock. OK the dialog to set the new keys. Test by watching the capslock light go on/off as you tap Fn. test the upper row of keys in each ...

Outside chances, the charging port was fried (check it sill charges), your Mac is compensating by running at a lower CPU clock speed, or the DGPU has reverted to the IGPU. Run hardware tests, hold D at boot. Connectivity should have absolutely nothing to do with fps. fps is entirely a CPU/GPU function.

I would suggest to undo the registry edit that you did and use instead the free AutoHotkey. To invert the scroll you could use a AutoHotkey script such as: $WheelLeft:: Send {WheelRight} Return $WheelRight:: Send {WheelLeft} Return After installing AutoHotKey, put the script in a .ahk file and double-click it to test. You may stop the script by right-click ...

Turns out this was a function of my Varmilo M108 keyboard. The Windows key was disabled, which you can do by pressing fn + Windows key. You re-enable it by pressing the same keys again. I'd bet it was my cat walking across the keyboard that did it when I wasn't in the room. The Windows key doubles as the CMD key on mac.

It is highly probable that the USB to VGA adapter is faulty. To be 100% sure that it is the adapter, you would need to test another VGA monitor and a USB to VGA adapter. However, you have demonstrated the monitor works fine without it. That being said, USB to VGA adapters, especially cheap ones, are known to get hot internally and fail. I would replace it ...

Turns out it was much easier to just get another Mac and mount the bootlooped Mac in Target Disk Mode. After doing so, I was able to erase the system partition on the Mac in question in Disk Utility, leaving the data partition intact, and from then on, the data partition started accepting the correct encryption password. I was able to safely recover all my ...

The best EBook reader I know is calibre which is available for macOS. Import the epub into calibre and start the viewer. It has excellent search capabilities.

They don't get much simpler than AppCleaner (freeware); but idk if it deals with frameworks too. General rule is, if it needed an installer, it needs an uninstaller too. If it was drag & drop, it doesn't - though it will leave leftovers, prefs etc, which is where AppCleaner comes in. Drag & drop any app you want to trash. Have a quick look at the ...

Thanks to Tetsujin, this is how I have set it up. See this link for general usage of mission control - superuser.com/a/1187552/347380 Launch Mission Control, and assign iterm to space1 and google-chrome to space2. Disable automatic reshuffling of spaces from System Preferences -> Mission Control. I also check reduce motion under System Preferences -> ...

There is not enough information to conclusively prove it was or was not your housemate. It could have been her, it could have been OS or software doing something in the background, or it could have even been you by accident and not realizing it. If you want to properly allow another person access to your computer, you should either create that person their ...

This is not true. You can install Parallels Preview, then install Windows on Arm Technical Preview, which can install Elite Dangerous with Steam. It runs better than in most Windows laptops, check it https://youtu.be/edHU5r98zrQ

I know there is no mac version for Elite Dangerous so I will need to install Windows 10 (does anyone know how to do that? It’s impossible to run Windows 10 on an Apple device with a M1 Apple ARM processor. I heard something about Bootcamp) and I believe the M1 is an ARM processor so I wonder if Elite Dangerous and Windows 10 can run on ARM. BootCamp would ...

Bluetooth is a low data rate protocol and is generally capable of less than 2Mbps under normal circumstances. Bluetooth 3 supported a "High Speed" mode which used a WiFi link to achieve 24mbit, but is not "real" Bluetooth: Bluetooth v3.0 + HS provides theoretical data transfer speeds of up to 24 Mbit/s, though not over the Bluetooth link ...

Hmmm this is unusual. It might be something to do with the retina. Oh wait it's really simple: Go to System Preferences -> Displays -> (Built-in Retina Display) Color tab -> Calibrate... In Calibration, drag the white point slider to the far right (most blue light). This causes the screen to become extremely blue, so to cancel this out: Select ...

16 watt at peak Which probably most headphones can't reach so no danger Sony's thought of this and if that starts happening what's the difference between these and some knocked up Chinese ones. I have the same pair and I measured 10.6 at full volume of mac and 200 percent volume in vlc using a FLAC file

I would go to EveryMac.com. It has all the model numbers listed, by general spec and date available. It often does not have the specific part number for your computer, but it will give you enough information for any ordering or part-replacement issues. For example, if you know from the "About This Mac" screen that you have a MacBook Pro (15-inch ...

You may cover the LEDs with LightDims stickers, they have a kind that blocks 100% of the light (but it's a black color) and also one that dims the light by 80-90% (silver-aluminum color, like the charger).

Open the System Preferences > Keyboard and tick the "Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" checkbox. This reverses the functionality of the buttons so now you can press the function buttons as normal!
