Apple nerds... Don't beat me up for this, but I find it ironic that a Windows based disc (UBCD) can see a drive on a MBA that SL cannot. Linux can as well (gparted live cd). What's up with that? I believe I've answered all the questions...

If the set screw loosened up you just need to slightly tighten it up.

Shoot, I think the battery is indeed swollen slightly, the mouse seems to be responding to clicks perfectly now that I am running it without a battery.

Have you gone under SL disk utility under the menu bar and partitioned the drive as a Macintosh journaled disk yet? You can not I stall until you do.

Tried, but the disk is not listed for SL install disc. During initial troubleshooting, I formatted as hfs+journaled, single partition via ubcd however. (after a few unsuccessful install attempts, Google said SL may not see raw disks, and gparted live cd said the disk was raw format out of the box).

Never personally had that problem. ou can format it as NTFS or Fat 32 and SL should see the drive. It will not let you install, but then you can use Disk Utility to format as journaled

Not really understanding your issue. You have the display extended to your TV, just drag iTunes to the TV screen and keep Safari on your laptop screen. Are you trying to change spaces?

yes, i did that but when i'd go to safari on my mac and on the TV (which would show a grey screen instead of safari), i ended up trying it without being fullscreen in iTunes or safari and but them both on desktop 2, safari on my mac and iTunes on the tv.
Change spaces? what does that mean?

Ok, you're going fullscreen which causes the screen that the fullscreen app is not on to grey out. Unfortunately nothing you can do about that. I believe Mavericks (the new version of Mac OS coming) will fix this.

For now just expand the window to fill the screen rather than using true fullscreen mode.

Aaron is correct. The fullscreen app mode is worthless when multiple monitors come in to play. Hit the (+) button up in the corner next to your minimize and close, then drag to size if need be.

While both computers are on and connected to the network do this on one of them. Go to System Preferences (Apple Menu > System Preferences). Select Network, and then with whatever you use to connect to the network highlighted on the left (wi-fi, ethernet, etc.) click on Advanced in the bottom right corner. Then choose the TCP/IP tab and click Renew DHCP Lease. That should grab a new IP for that computer. And you can go to the same spot on the other computer to verify they now have different IP's.

Does anyone know why my iPhone 5 is having trouble with its Wi-Fi. I connect it to my home network and it connects and shows full reception but as soon as i try internet or app store it shows, Not connected to the server.

Apple care recommended me to go to a genius bar...
