Error code 4mem/63/40000000:0xb6478798

Hi Dudley
You may not believe this, but... the only people who have access to the "error codes" are the Apple in house engineers. In all the years I have been fixing Mac's I have never needed to traced an Error Code. Even when you know what it means, it won't help.
The best action with a computer fault is to determine whether it's a hardware or software at fault.
The way to do that on a Mac is to start by booting up the computer from another clean MacOSX.
There is a very simple spare system loaded on your Mac already.
So... try that first.
Reboot your Mac. As soon as you hear the startup chimes, hold the option key down until you see some icons.
Choose the "Recovery" icon to boot from.
This will startup the machine with only a basic OS X.
Now... does you problem still exist?
If it's OK then the problem is probably a damaged OS X software.
You can also try and Re Boot while holding the "Shift" key down. This will disable many extensions and may fix some issues, but it really slows the machine down while in that mode.
Then try re Booting as Normal and check for the problem.
If you find that your OS X is wounded then I would suggest that you get a free (trial) copy of CCC and Get yourself an external hard drive NewerTech 1 0TB Hard Drive Voyager in stock at OWC (1TB partitioned into 2)
I use the dock & drive above because it is so versatile for a technician as you can plug in the drive of your choice. Eg 1 for movies, 1 for Backups etc. I also prefer 3.5" drives as they are faster and more reliable than the 2.5 inch drives.
The choice of supplier & size is totally yours ....... I don't get any kickbacks from any suppliers. (I'm Down Under in Oz)
Download from Apple the Yosemite OSX10.10.3
Apple Mac OS Mavericks
and copy this to one of the empty partitions. You could use a 32GB memory stick formatted for Mac (Disk Utility) and practice installing the new OSX on to it, to get the feel as to how it installs.
Use CCC to make a clone to one partition on your external hard drive. When completed, you should boot from this clone to prove that you have an exact bootable copy of your faulty drive.
Once this is done you are free to use "Disk Utility" to erase your internal Hard Drive & Install the new (Clean) OS X10.10.x onto the drive. When completed it will ask you if you want to "Migrate" your old files & settings back to your newly installed OSX (Yosemite)
Then you Mac should be as new again.
Or you can just use the new OSX10 as is but you will have to type all your details back in and set up your network etc.

Hope this Helps
If it does... Please Give me a Tick of Approval for all my typing!
It's often the only thanks we get...

I can'tu nlock my MacBook Pro model number A1286

I went to work on an answer for you. I had to go through the steps myself rather than trusting my memory. The problem is that he software on the install disc did something to my drive so my Mac wouldn't boot*. So this is a bit more complex than I thought it would be. Here's the deal: prior to OS X version 10.7 Lion, it's a simple matter of starting your machine with the DVD called Mac OS X Install DVD.

***But WARNING:** If you have 10.7 or later installed on your Mac, resetting the password using the 10.6 Snow Leopard DVD may damage the directory or volume structure of your hard drive. This is damage to the data stored magnetically on the drive, not actual damage to the computer. Check your OS X version by clicking the Apple menu (upper left) and clicking "About This Mac" in the menu that drops down.

If you're not sure what version of OS X is installed on your machine, I'd suggest taking it to an Apple Store near you. Hopefully, there is an Apple Store near you. Before you go, sign up for an appointment with a "Genius" at your local Apple Store. Search Google for "sign up Genius Apple Store" or go to

* I fixed my hard drive with DiskWarrior. Expensive, but highly recommended drive repair software.

Steps to reset password (ONLY for machines running 10.6 or earlier):

If you still have your system disks that came with your Mac, this will be pretty straightforward. Note: I go into detail because I don't know what you know. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence. :)

1) Slide the first system disc, the "Mac OS X Install Disc, gently into your disc slot (careful there isn't disc in there already).
2) Turn on Mac while holding down C key. Keep holding C key at least 30 seconds.
3) The first screen has you select your language. Click the arrow in blue circle to continue.4) The next screen it stops at says "Install Mac OS X" at top. **Do not** click the Continue button.
5) Instead, click the "Utilities" menu at very top of screen.
6) In the menu that drops down, click "Reset Password..."
7) In this, the last screen, Click your Mac's hard drive at top (hint: it's **not** the one that looks like a CD).
8) Under "Select the user account" make sure it says your main account. If not click to select your user name on the machine.
9) Under "Enter a new password for this user" click in the white and type a new password. It should be at least 9 characters long and contain at least one capital letter somewhere in it, and it should include a number somewhere, such as your lucky number. Something that's not too difficult to type. Enter the new password again in the box below that.
10) Click the "Save" button. Wait until it's done!! Turn off your Mac by holding down the power button until it turns off.
11) Turn on your Mac as you would normally. Type in your shiny new password when asked.

Critical: Write down password and put it in your nightstand or something. Memorize it. You'll need to know it. (Note: this is *not* the same as your AppleID password if you have one.)

Good Luck! I hope this helps.

Need help with imac im locked out

Problem: Your Mac got locked via iCloud and on boot displays "Enter your system lock PIN code to unlock this Mac." It also sets an unknown password on the firmware so you can't boot from a disc. And you don't know the PIN code for a variety of reasons (not my business).

Solution: Mount the locked drive on another machine, find the PIN, re-install the locked drive into the original Mac, enter the PIN, resume your business.

*I'm going to post the steps I did in my case and suggest steps you might take if your case varies.

Things Needed:
1. Alternate machine with space to mount an additional drive. (works on Mac or PC*)
*If you're using a PC, you'll need to download and install Mac Drive to be able to read the contents from a Windows environment.
2. You might need a SATA to USB adapter if you have a laptop without room for an additional drive.
3. Screw driver to disassemble the Mac.

Step 1: Remove the locked hard drive from your Mac.
You can find detailed guides for your specific machine at

Step 2: Install the drive into your alternate machine. But make sure you do *not* boot from it. Boot from your regular drive.
If you do not have an alternate machine, feel free to ask a tech buddy of yours to lend you their machine.

Step 3: Once booted into the alternate system, locate your locked drive.
In my case it was drive D: on Windows. Now browse to \Users\username\Library\Application Support\iCloud

Step 4: In the folder "iCloud" find a file named with a bunch of numbers: ##########.lock In my case it was: 1138515150.lock

Step 5: I'd suggest that you take a picture of this file name for accurate reference. But you can also just write it down.

Step 6: Once you got the number, power down the machine and remove the locked drive.

Step 7: Install the locked drive back into the original locked Mac.
Follow your iFixit guide from Step 1 in reverse to put the drive back.
*It is important that you put it back in the machine where it was originally locked* so that the motherboard firmware will be unlocked in the next step.

Step 8: Boot up the locked Mac and referencing the number you recorded, you can start trying 4 numbers at a time for the PIN.
Try the first 4, then the second 4, and so on..
For example: 1138, 1385, 3851, 8515, 5151, 1515, 5150.
In my case the PIN was the second to last 4 digits: 1515
If you typed in more than 10 combinations, then it says that you are locked out for a minute. Just restart the machine and continue entering the combinations from where you left off.

Once you enter the right PIN, the Mac will instantly reboot proceeding to where you were at when the lockout occurred. It will also remove the firmware password.

I just bought a new Imac computer. I had a Maxtor One Touch 4 500 GB that I used with my windows xp. What if anything do I need to do to...

The drive will need to be reformatted to the HFS file spec for Mac. You will lose any data on the drive when you do that.

However, you shouldn't need to do anything other than plug the drive into your iMac, then once the icon appears on your desktop (may take a minute), double-click on it to start the Mac install process.

If the Mac install process fails for some reason, it may be because the drive was previously installed on a Windows machine, and you may have to simply treat it as a "raw" new drive, and reformat it using the Mac operating system utilities.

Hope that's helpful.

When you power on the (apple) or (mac os x) iBook model#A1005 ( NTBOE004010) a screen comes on and ask for username and password. i purchased this computer ibook second hand so how do i proceed from here...

Hi there,
Congratulations on your new computer! What you need to do is reinstall the operating system, after wiping the computer:
  1. Turn the Mac on and insert the restoration disk that came with it (If you don't have one then you'll need to get one, try ebay or amazon, or an Apple store).
  2. Turn the Mac off with the disk still in
  3. Re-boot it, holding down the C key. This will boot up from the CD, and hopefully you'll be able to re-install Mac OS X, which will give you a working, clean machine.
When you get to step 3, you should have a menu bar at the top. Select Utilities -> Disk Utility. Select the computer's hard drive, and 'Erase'. Call the new partition whatever you like, but make sure it uses Mac OS Journaled Extended file system. Follow the instructions and you'll have a machine like new!
If you don't already have an install disk, watch out - you can only install Mac OS up to Mac OS 10.5 on your iBook. Don't buy a 10.6 (Snow leopard) disk, as it won't install!
Hope that helped, good luck!

My mac laptop will not boot up, a white screen comes up then after quite some time a folder with a question mark comes up. My batteries are pretty old, but this happens when it is plugged in.

Two possible things are wrong either your hard drive has failed or your system has corrupted. Put your instal disk in. Start your mac up and hold down the c key. Once it has started check that the hard drive exists by go to the menu bar and selecting the disk utility. If the hard drive shows it means that it is okay. Then run the disk utility check drive and then run the repair permissions. You can then try restarting, if it works then you are back up and running again. If it does not you will need to reinstal your system. You do this by starting up with the instal disk holding down the c key and run the instal script. To keep your hard drive contents you MUST use the preserve users instal which will come up as an option. Do not reformat the hard drive as this will wipe all your information.

If you have been running time machine as your backup operation you could instal a totally clean system and then select the time machine backup once the new system has been laid down using the migration utility in the utilities folder within the applications folder.

If your hard drive does not show up the hard drive is probably a gonner and you will have to purchase a new hard drive and instal a fresh system.

Hope this helps

The "human face" icon is an indication that your hard drive is not being recognized by your iMac G3 because the hard drive is not formatted to read the Mac OS 9 software.

How to install and use mac External desktop hard drives to store music, movies, etc. Not time Machine

Just turn the time machine off for each disk you want to use for data. It's easy. When a mac asks You during insertion "Use the disk JOHN DOE as a time machine backup?" Say "No". That's all. Or, if You don't want to use a Time mashine as well, just turn it off in a system preferences - time machine, or by clicking on time machine icon on menu bar.
