    GEZZZ. I talked to a product specialist for 6 weeks after installing 10.7.4 and finally got it running good. My only issue is that I only have two screen resolution choices. I also brought it into an Apple store and they told me that the age of my computer (2006) prevented all my screen resolutions to remain. I was told to wait for an update but I waited and waited and now Mtn.Lion came out and it says it will not work on this computer. Then I read before Mtn. Lion came out there was 10.7.5 beta and it brought back all the missing resolution options. However from my research it was only for developers. I dont want to go back to 10.7.3 to get my resolution choices back but will if I have to. Is there anything I can do or anyway to get 10.7.5? THANKS Neil

    You can spend $99 to join the Apple Developer Program, or just wait a few weeks until 10.7.5 is released.
    What computer do you have and what resolutions are missing? Have you tried SwitchResX to see if it reenables whatever resolution you're missing?

    Thanks for the great Info!!!

    Thanks so much for your quick and informative reply! I appreciate because I felt in the dark. With the release of Mtn Lion I thought they would not release 10.7.5. Great to know they are. I will go to the link you gave me and check it out. The only resolutions I have are 1920x1200 and 960x600. I am so grateful for your response as I thought I was dead in the water. Neil:)
