How can I speed up my Mac? (link)

Tips to speedup a your Mac computer

 

The best way to speedup sluggish Mac computer is to rebuild it.   Wipe the hard drive and reinstall the programs and your data.  It's just like rebuilding a car engine, but like a car, that may involve a lot of work.  If you have a full backup using TimeMachine you can wipe the hard drive, reload the Snow Leopard OS and then restore everything back to the same setup with TimeMachine and the program 'Migrate' found in the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder.  

 

There are simpler ways to cleanup your Mac, though not as effective.   You can run some simple maintenance programs.  The simplest is actually built into the Mac already.  One for the OS and one for MS Office.

 

For MS Office, follow this path:

Hard drive > Applications > MicroSoft Office 2011 > Office > Microsoft Database Utility.app

 

Select the "repair data base" option and run the utility.   It is the first fix to help clear up any issues you maybe having with MS Office.

 

Next is 'Drive Utility' - located on this path;

Hard drive > Applications > Utilities > "Drive Utility"  after opening, select the hard drive in the left column and "Repair Disk Permissions".   If you boot from an original DVD, you can also "Repair Disk".

 

The next step to cleanup a Mac, is to dump caches that slow up systems and browsers.  It can be done manually if you know where to find all the caches, but it's better if you use a good Utility program.  These programs do not come with the Mac and must be bought separately.   One of the best, and it's free, is ONYX.   Check the link below and download the one for your system.

 

http://www.titanium.free.fr/download.php?sid=06565bec047f1e1cb2c0a7bbe12dacd0

 

The last way to clean things up is to do the defrag like you mentioned. It's not built into the Mac because Apple says you don't need it.  The Mac OS is designed to keep things defragged automatically.  I have run it on some very fragmented machines and have found it to help with varying success.  Several programs will defrag a Mac.  The one is use is called iDefrag, (www.coriolis-systems.com/iDefrag.php  -$60).

 

If you really want to speed up your Mac, new hardware is one of the best options but obvious cost bigger bucks.   Max out the Ram memory to 4GB or better if your computer will hold it.   The upgrade that really improves the speed the most, is replacing older hard drives with the new Solid State hard drives.  They are all digital with no moving parts and make the laptop run unto 4 times faster.  The big draw back is that they are expensive and so we are only buying small sizes ones for now.   The biggest one we are using now is 120GB and they go for about $200.   But that price should go down with time.

How do I set the region on a Macintosh computer? (link)

Assuming you're talking about the region for the DVD device, it's a difficult question to answer. The only real way to set it is to insert a disc into the optical drive and wait for the regional interface to appear, and then select your region. I do believe, however, that the region can only be changed so many times before it becomes locked in place. Alternatively, you can download a piece of software known as VLC Media Player, which ignores the region protocol and will allow you to play media from any region so long as you have it set to the default media player instead of Apple's DVD Player.

Why can't I access Facebook on the wireless network? (link)

Various restrictions apply to the guest wireless network, including limited speed, and restricted access to some web sites, including Facebook. W&L faculty, staff and students can get the best quality connection by registering for W&L's secure wireless network. To do that, point your browser on your wireless device to http://wireless.wlu.edu and follow the directions.

Why can't I log on to a W&L authenticated web application? (link)

Here are some of the most common symptoms and solutions to authentication failure to W&L web applications:

  1. You are repeatedly presented with a login prompt, which never is successful.  You are using a personal computer, or are off campus.    Try entering your user name with the prefix "AD\" .  E.g.   AD\MyAccountName  .  W&L's Active Directory domain is named "AD".  This prefix tells the web server which domain to authenticate against.
  2. The previous step does not work, but in the popup, you see an option similar to "Use Another Account".  Select that option, and use the AD\ prefix.  In this case, your browser is using your computer's name as the authentication domain, and is ignoring the AD\ prefix.
  3. Has your W&L password expired?  Has it been more that one year since you changed it?  You may do so at http://password.wlu.edu.
  4. You are using FireFox version 30.0 on a Mac or Linux workstation.  Release 30 breaks Windows authentication.  See the following for a fix: http://managementtools.wlu.edu/Help/Resources/1/271.pdf
  5. You are using FireFox version 40, and accessing an unauthenticated page with authenticated content embedded in it.  This version of FireFox intentionally disables this if the page and content are in different domains.  You can configure Firefox to allow this, or use a different browser.
  6. You are using Safari, and receiving the error "request body stream exhausted".  This is a bug with Safari authentication.  Use a different browser.
  7. You are on an iOS device, recently updated to version 7.  This update breaks windows authentication for some iOS devices like iPhones or iPads.  Use another device.
  8. You are never presented with a login prompt.  You are using Internet Explorer on a W&L computer, from off campus.  Integrated Windows login is failing because the browser can not communicate with a W&L AD Domain Controller from off campus.  Use another browser or temporarily disable Integrated Windows authentication: https://managementtools.wlu.edu/Help/Default.aspx?col=1&q=unable+log+login

If none of these solutions work, try going to http://MyVI.wlu.edu and opening a web browser from the APPS screen.  Then, you will effectively be using a W&L computer, and on campus.  This will bypass many issues associated with using personally owned computers.

When off campus, why can't I log into a W&L application web site (like SharePoint) using Internet Explorer? (link)

If one takes a W&L laptop that is in the W&L AD domain off campus and then attaches to a site that is in the IE 'Local Intranet' security zone, the laptop attempts to do pass-through integrated windows login.  However, this requires that the computer has direct access to an AD domain controller, which is blocked in the firewall.  Unfortunately, IE does not gracefully fall back to a username and password prompt in this case.

 

To configure IE to always prompt for a username and password:

1.       Open Internet Explorer

2.       Select “Tools”

3.       Select “Internet Options”

4.       Select “Security”

5.       Select “Local  intranet”

6.       Select “Custom level…”

7.       Scroll all the way to the last option and select “Prompt for user name and password”

8.       Select “OK” to exit both dialog windows

 

To re-configure IE once you are back on campus, follow the same procedure, but in step 7, select “Automatic logon only in Intranet zone”
