Leaving an open photo file on MacBook Pro, then logging out, does it damage the photo?

I opened a photo file and then changed the user on MacBook. When I logged in again, the photo was still open.
Does this degrade the quality of the photo?

MacBook Pro using Bootcamp for Windows will not use all VRAM. Help me?

I have a 15-inch MacBook Pro (2015 RAM about 16 GB) with a Windows partition and I'm trying to play Resident Evil 2.

The game has a VRAM meter very convenient in the settings and indicates that I have only 0.11 GB of VRAM, not the full VRAM of my graphics card.

The card is an Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 processor.

It's weird because I can run Metal Gear Solid V with high settings without problems. But in the game with Resident Evil 2, it misses a lot of objects (the floor, the walls, etc.) and the objects glitter (trees, backgrounds).

I have checked with dxidiag and, indeed, it is said that I have 2160MB Approx. Total memory, 112 MB display memory (VRAM) and 2048 shared memory.

It seems that Windows can not use all available memory and I do not know why.

I have tried to directly download the graphics card driver from the Intel website, but that has not changed anything.

Anyone have an idea on how I can assign the full VRAM of my card to the Windows partition?

audio – PS4 earphones stop working on MacBook Pro after pressing the mute button

I had my PS4 headphones (the ones that came with the PS4) plugged into my MacBook Pro (model 2017 I believe) and I accidentally pressed the mute (F10) instead of lowering the volume (F11) . From now on, they do not work. I've checked the audio panel and it's not muted, reset coreaudiod, reset Mac and update it. I looked for solutions for the missing audio files, but nothing worked. I have a generic headset that works on my MacBook, but not my PS4 headphones.

hard drive – Macbook Pro 2012 MD101 can not boot, can not reinstall OSX

About 5 years ago, I upgraded the original hard drive to SSD (Samsung 840 evo), all went well until last November.

After a trip for an exam (4 hours drive, 2 hours round trip, 2 hours back), when I turn on the device, a question folder cue is displayed at the # 39; screen.

Because this one is a backup computer and that there is no important data, so I tried to reinstall OS X. But after a long wait, the computer still can not start, always query the folder mark.

When I try to reinstall, the SSD is not found in Install OS X Program or the Disk Utility program. I remove the SDD, connect it to a PC and delete the partition, these Mac applications can find it, but the Disk Utility program can not erase the disk, the erasure progress will be blocked somewhere .

I thought this SSD is dead. So I replaced it with a new SSD. Try again, the same problem.

In addition to these:

I tried to reinstall from the recovery disc. Always the same problem.

I have tried to run Apple Hardware Test, I have not found any problem.

After a lot of testing, when I clear the partition, this error popup:

Failed to clear the volume

The volume erasure failed with the error:

POSIX reports: The operation could not be completed.

Input / output error

When I drive to the exam then maybe some shocks and jolts have broken part of the computer? I do not know.

love at first sight – Dell D3818DW: How to use the KVM between PC and Macbook pro mid-2012?

I just bought a Dell 38 "Ultrawide (D3818DW) and I want to get all the cables I need while I wait for his arrival.
I want to use the KVM feature of this monitor between my MBP mid-2012 and my PC in order to seamlessly switch between them.


1.) Can I display them side by side?

2.) I read that I needed a Mini-Display Port to Display Port cable to connect my MBP. And to use the KVM feature, I also need to connect a downstream USB cable to the MBP.

But I've also read that connecting an MBP via USB-C can avoid having to connect a USB downstream to use the KVM feature. My mac has a Thunderbolt 2 port and two USB 3.0 ports.

So, can I just use something like the StarTech TBT3TBTADAP TB 3 adapter to legacy TB for display and KVM? I will not need two wires out of my MBP when I use the KVM feature.
