Brand New 15″ MacBook Pro with TouchBar GPU Graphics issue/glitch/fault.

2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. Highest possible spec, 2TB SSD, 16GB RAM, 4GB GPU, 2.9Ghz i7.

24 hours old, powered on, installed Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop from Adobe CC app.

No apps open at the time. I had just launched the Migration Assistant as I was about to start pulling over all my content from my old 2012 retina MacBook Pro. Migration Assistant had just logged me out automatically and then I opted to quit migration assistant and do some more housekeeping on my old rMBP before migrating data. I quit the Migration Assistant and was presented with the login screen. I tried touchID which failed as it required password, typed in password, screen went blank for 5 to 10 seconds and then had terrible graphic glitches, mainly a yellow wave hue all over the screen that moved when windows were moved around. Issue was still present after changing the resolution in the settings. Issue persisted for around 5 minutes before returning to normal.

Force eject CD/DVD stuck in Apple computer

CD or DVD stuck in your Macbook or Macbook Pro or refusing to eject? Here’s a quick fix.

If you’ve got a CD or DVD that simply refuses to eject from your Apple computer, whether it’s an iMac, MacPro or Macbook there’s a simple solution.

To eject a stuck disc:
Press and hold your mouse or trackpad button during bootup

  1. Power down the device completely
  2. Press and hold your mouse button/trackpad button and keep it held down
  3. Press the power button to turn it back on while keeping mouse button down
  4. Keep holding the mouse/trackpad button and eventually the CD or DVD should eject itself and then the computer will continue to boot as normal.

NOTE: I’m not sure if this technique still works with wireless (Bluetooth) pointing devices such as the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad but I will endeavour to test this later and update this post.
