Robert Antoine. I have a new problem that involves no sound coming out of the Mac Mini's speakers.

When i received my Mini from the seller there was a gap to the rear of the unit as the party before me did not reassembly the top cover all the way. I gave it back to have the cover fitted correctly and now after powering on the unit I recognise that there is no sound, and plugged in some external speakers and got sound for just about 2mins then a lot of static. I then purchease a putty knife filed the edges and opened the case, but I found nothing that seemed like it was out of placeso I reassembeled.

I had the same problem with a Core Solo machine.

There is a painted line on the ZIF cable. Before you close the cable lock, make sure the cable is fully inserted - the painted line will be about 1mm above and parallel to the top of the socket. Push down the clip and all should be well.

Phew :. Dan Elazary. If your Mac is on the list at the top of this page, then click the apple link at the top of the page. Cheers, Chris. Hi Sundar, Officially, Apple only seems to support 64 bit Windows on models since about Yeah, the apple link still works, but they changed the page of where the downloads is. This worked for me, it contained all the drivers i needed for it, the same as installing bootcamp when i first run windows.

I have installed Windows 7 64 bit through boot camp assistant, its successfully installed. Afterwards, I installed the Autodesk 3dsMax , its successfully installed too. And it seems slow.

This Apple specs lookup will also narrow down possibilities if you click on notebook and then type in the processor details. Your e-mail address will not be published.

After booting into windows the sound card was immediately working this was because I had installed the cirrus logic drivers from bootcamp 4 - the display audio driver in device manager had an exclamation point but I was able to install the display audio driver from intel's driver support for the i7 m CPU in this machine-. I also looked at device manager via 'by resources' and saw that a new entry 'Large memory with an address range appeared.

And low and behold the address range for the 'large memory section' contained the range for the hd audio controller.

I then wanted to see if the method described in the initial link posted above where you force that memory map into the registry and turn on 'test signing' worked I would gladly go more in depth but I doubt there are many more who need this information- just glad to have figured it out without the BIOS emulation of bootcamp- going to test this method on other 'pre ' Macs with non complient UEFI bios'.

Read the webpage you downloaded the support software from more carefully. Try downloading and installing Boot Camp Support Software 5. I would check out this link here. Use Windows 10 on your Mac with Boot Camp.

Here's the Compatibility Charts for Windows 7. I did also poke around and found this guide for installing it sans bootcamp fgimian. But, actually, it's really a guide to doing everything manually past downloading Bootcamp from Apple. I feel like you need to do this on your own, or an near identical machine. Thank you for your interest in this question.
