Mac os software / A Solution for MacBook Pro Booting to a Black Screen
« Last post by admin on December 06, 2017, 05:41:42 PM »
1) On any modern MacBook Pro or MacBook Air with a built-in battery, which is just a bout all of them nowadays, this is how you do that:

    Shut down the Mac and connect it to your MagSafe adapter and a wall outlet as usual
    Hold down the Shift+Control+Option+Power button at the same time for a few seconds
    Release all keys at the same time, then boot the Mac as usual

Older Macs can find directions here for the same process on their machines, it’s slightly different if you can take out the battery.

When the Mac boots, hopefully the black screen has gone away and you’re back to normal

2) Try a Keypress Sequence to Ditch the Black Screen

Regular readers may recall that we covered some OS X keyboard shortcuts for the Shutdown, Sleep, and Restart controls of just about every Mac, and this little key press sequence takes advantage of those. Oddly enough, it seems to work to resolve some of the mystery Mac booting into black screen issues. Here’s the precise sequence to follow:

    Press the Power / OFF button once – this will bring up the dialog box which you can’t see
    Press the “S” button – this is the shortcut to sleep the Mac
    Hold down the Power button until a hard shut down is forced
    Wait about 15 seconds, then hit the Power button again to turn it back on

3) Try a PRAM Reset to Resolve the Black Boot Display

If the above two tricks failed, a PRAM reset can often do the trick, as many of the commenters on this article can attest to. As a potential solution to the black screen on boot, this is done upon restarting the Mac similar to an SMC reset:

    Reboot the Mac and as soon as you hear the boot chime, hold down the Command+Option+P+R keys together
    When you hear the boot sound again, the PRAM has been reset so let the Mac boot again as usual

Windows Operating Systems / Error 1314: A Required Privilege is Not Held

Problem is solved by 'Ruining program as  as Administrator'. All working OK now...
ere’s different ways to do it, but probably the quickest and easiest way is with Nirsoft’s ProduKey:

    Download, extract, and run the program (it will show your own key by default)
    Press F9 to bring up the Select Source dialog
    Select Load the product keys from external Software Registry hive
    Browse to the SOFTWARE registry hive. For example, if you have the drive from the other system mounted as drive Z:, then you would probably select Z:\Windows\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
    Click [OK]

To fix it go to the my drive connect program in the bottom right hand corner in windows 7.
Click on settings, then click cache, then where it says "empty the cache", click one there.
Go back to

One of the compromises that laptop manufacturers had to make to support a full-sized keyboard into the space of a laptop is that numeric keypad that most keyboards have. What they’ve done is overlaid it “on top” of the regular alpha numeric keyboard.

The trick, of course, is noticing it, and then turning it on, or in your case, off.

To fix it, just find and press the “Num Lk” or “Pad Lk” key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves “Fn” keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the “Fn” key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.
Question:As i type right now, i have to hold down the “Fn” key just to get normal letters. I don’t know how it happened, but I’m on a laptop and the only way for me to get the “u,i,o,l,;,k,j,m,7,9,0,/,p” keys are to hold down the “Fn” key. It isblue on the lower left of my internal keyboard.
