1. Problem with USB
2. Widgets for Dashboard
There are several widgets available for the Mac Dashboard.
3. Setting up the screen resolution
From this site, I learn how to change the screen resolution. Works for me 🙂
If your screen resolution is not ok then do the following: Press F8 when you boot OS X and then write “?video” this will show you all the possible resolutions. For example that you want 1280×1024×32 then again in the boot write “Graphics Mode”=” 1280×1024×32” and if everything goes well and your computer boots with the right resolution, you have to add it to “com.apple.boot.plist” to make it permanent. Now how you edit com.apple.boot.plist; First of all you need to back it up; you can find it in ‘/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration’. From there copy it in a backup location. Open terminal and type: sudo -s cd /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration pico com.apple.boot.plist There you add this after the other options: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280×1024×32 </string> Then CTRL+O to save it CTRL+X to exit. Another way to edit it is to copy it in your desktop open it with ‘textedit’ and there you add this: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280×1024×32 </string> Save it and then copy paste it in ‘/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration’ so as to replace it (it will ask for administrator password).
Next perhaps, I should try repeating all these again with my nVidia card fixed on the mother board. 🙂
