MacBook Pro 13” screen dead – how can I use external display?

An authourised Apple store have told me I need a screen replacement after my screen went dead. When I connect the MacBook Pro (late 2013 model) to my Samsung TV via hdmi I see the log in screen on the TV. I enter my password all ok but as the MacBook unlocks the TV screen goes black.

I know normally have have to go into setting and manually tell the MB to use the external display but i can’t do this because obviously I can’t see anything.

I’ve also tried Cmd F1 but that doesn’t seem to do anything.

Any suggestions gratefully received!!


Black screen when using 4 ram sticks on brand new iMac 5K

I bought a 5K iMac 4 months ago, with the stock 8gb of ram. I bought an extra 2x4GB off Amazon (Crucial Ram). But then, it looks like I cannot use all 4 ram slots at the same time. The iMac won’t even start, only show a black screen. The Crucial ram sticks are 100% working, since I tried removing the original ram sticks, using only the new ones, and the mac boots and runs fine Right now, I am running the iMac with 3 of the 4 sticks, so at the moment I have 12gb of ram. I tried using the top 3 slots, it works. Bottom 3, it works. 2 slots works too. But as soon as I insert a 4th ram stick, it stops working I have resetted the SMC and NVRAM. Still no luck Also updated Mojave to 10.14.2 (latest version)

Any ideas? I would like to see if there’s anything I can try before setting an appointment with Apple for this, since it’s my main working machine, and I need to work on some projects right now.

Thanks a lot!

Split screen divider stuck on Desktop, not actually dividing any windows, distracting – how to remove?

How can the split screen divider be removed, please?

When not using a Desktop workspace/area, I can see the vertical divider over the Desktop, but this isn’t serving any purpose and is therefore distracting.

See screenshot:

Thanks for your time reading, any help appreciated.

Black screen on startup on iMac

My dad’s iMac (2010 27″ i7, has no gray apple boot screen on startup and displays a black screen. However… you can hear the chime and the machine seems to boot fully and I can even ping it!

The graphics card has failed before, but it resulted in the iMac to just freeze up when (presumably) the graphics card drivers started loading. Replacing the graphics card fixed the issue.

I’ve tried plugging in an external monitor to the DisplayPort connection on the back, but it doesn’t show anything.

Also, pointing a flashlight at the screen doesn’t seem to reveal anything. Additionally when removing the screen entirely, the system is happy to boot but still refuses to show video on the external monitor. Any ideas?

I don’t have access to another Apple computer here.

SharePoint 2013 – YouTube embed full screen not working in IE 11

Youtube embed iframe full screen option is not working in IE 11 . I have done some troubleshooting and below are some key facts.

  1. Full screen option works if I change the compatibility mode to Edge. But SP Seattle masterpage defaults to IE 10 compatibility mode and full screen does not work

  2. I have tried allowfullscreen attribute but no luck with IE 11.

  3. The full screen option works in Chrome and other browsers. 4.Another interesting observation from a user is that this used to work before.

  4. Tried same thing in SharePoint online and same result in IE 11.

Have anyone of you experienced this problem in SharePoint lately.
