MacBook Pro :: Connecting To External Display - Apple Mini Displayport To DVI And DVI To DVI Cable

Oct 7, 2009

I have a presentation tomorrow and need to hook up my MBP to the projector in class. I bought an Apple Mini Displayport to DVI cable, and a DVI to DVI cable. I thought this would be the case, but come to find out the system does not support DVI. So I had to run to Best buy to get a DVI to VGA cable. I tried out the MDP > DVI > VGA rig on my external monitor and got nothing. The screen on my MBP responded by turning blue for a second and then back to normal...but the monitor said "No Signal". Is this some jargon with DVI-D and DVI-I? I need to know by tomorrow morning if I have to run back to the Apple Store and get a Mini Displayport to VGA cable.

Hardware :: Mini Display Port To DVI Adaptor Doesn't Connect To DVI Cable?

Nov 2, 2009

I bought a Mini DisplayPort to DVI adaptor with the intent of connecting my TV (with DVI-in) to my MacBook in order to use front row (and plex) for films.

However when I got home, I found that the DVI female of the adaptor does not match up (or successfully connect) to the DVI male of the cable. Have I done something foolish, but it seems that there are pins on the male that do not have a corresponding socket?

I have attached an image to try and help out...

Should I just give up and seek out a VGA instead?

MacBook Pro :: External Display - Samsung 27' Syncmaster SA550 Monitor Won't Connect To It?

May 2, 2012

I Late 2008 Macbook Pro. My needs have shifted lately, as I am now using it mostly with an external display. I ran it into my 23(?) LG 1080 LED monitor with no problem. I recently bought a Samsung 27' Syncmaster SA550 monitor. I am in love with it, however I cannot find a display size that fits the monitor. I am currently running the 1080p resolution setting on my computer but it is easily 2-3 inches too small. And with overscan its too big to see my menu bar and dock at all. Running at a 24-25' screen size is still much better than my 15 inch macbook pro screen, but it would be awesome to use all of the 27 inches of this monitor. I have been unable to find a working setting, if there is a trick, or a way to setup a custom size As well I am running this as the sole display (not dual screens)

Pro, iOS 5.1, External Display: Samsung SA550

MacBook Pro :: How To Connect Two External Displays That Are Not Mirrored And Turn Off Retina Display

Dec 9, 2014

I have two questions:

1.  Is it possible to use two external displays either mirrored or not and turn off the retina display, and if so how it is done?

2.  Is it possible to close the MBP and use an external keyboard while using two external displays?

I am using a music production DAW Persons Studio One-2 Pro and it would be great to be able to have this type of a setup.

OS X :: How To Connect PS3 To MacBook With Cable

Nov 14, 2009

My question is if it's possible to connect my MacBook Pro (13") with ethernet connection to my PS3 with an ethernet (or other) cable. So that my PS3 sees my MacBook without using any router, etc... and that I can play movies (e.g. in Blu-Ray) or music that's on my MacBook through my PS3 on my TV?

I've tried Medialink but I guess that's also for wireless streaming also because when I connect my MacBook with my PS3 my PS3 doesn't show up under "devices".

MacBook Pro :: Can't Connect To Internet Using Ethernet Cable

Oct 12, 2010

I'm here at university and the wifi here sucks! it is so slow, it is working.However there is an ethernet port and I did connect to it this morning. But, this evening I tried connecting again and it wouldnt let me!At my university they require you to put in your student ID and pw in order for you to use the internet for both wi-fi and ethernet. But when i tried this evening it dint ask for my student ID or password. I went to settings and it did say that there was a connection and that "Ethernet has a self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the Internet"

i dont understand how come now it isnt working. I aksed my classmate nextdoor if his internet port was working through the ethernet port he said it was.... i am not that tech savy so keep vocabulary to something simple lmaooo.

MacBook Pro :: How Can I Connect To WiFi? - Using Charter Cable

Nov 17, 2009

I just moved into my cousins house, which is a lot closer to my university. For the past year have lived about 20 miles away and fortunately now am under 3 miles away.My current situation (don't wanna call it a problem, hoping we'll find a solution) is that his WiFi network is located on one end of his house, while i'm staying on the other side. His house isn't somewhat big, def. more vast than anything i'm used to...but the WiFi is on the south side of the house. My guest bedroom and small work area is on the north side, i'm guessing 40 or 50ft away.He had WiFi using Charter Cable and won't budge drilling another hole in the middle of the house so I could get reception. Nor will he have a long cable from the south side go to even the middle of the home.

MacBook Air :: Why Won't IPad Connect Via Lightning Cable

Jul 2, 2014

I have an iPad (4th Gen, 32GB, iOS 7.11) and a MacBook Air (OS X Ver 10.9.3).  

My iPad was purchased Feb. 2013, and my MacBook was purchased June 2014. 

Here's the low-down:

I just put quite a few albums onto my MacBook that were physical (from a DiskDrive, HardDrive, CD) and in order to put them onto my iPad, I need to plug it in with the cable and sync them over. The problem, however, is that when I plug in the iPad, nothing happens. No connection sound, no iPad charging, nothing. It is as if the cable itself is nonexistent. I can then unplug the USB from my MacBook and stick into the AC Adapter and all is good. What gives? I can plug it into my desktop, too, which is a PC running Windows 7.

MacBook Pro :: Does Not Recognize Ethernet Cable Or Connect To Wireless

May 4, 2012

Today when I turned on my computer, it suddenly would not recognize any kind of Internet connection. The Ethernet cable that I use every day now shows up as 'unplugged' even though it is plugged in. I have tried using a different cable, and it still shows up as unplugged. When I try to connect to the Internet wirelessly, there is always a connection timeout and I can't connect. I use a self-assigned IP address and I've never had this problem before. I've also reset my PRAM, but it hasn't worked.

MacBook Pro :: Use The Charger On Thunderbolt Display Cable?

Jun 12, 2012

I recently purchased a Macbook Pro and a Thunderbolt display. It appears when I plug my Macbook Pro in with the power adapter directly to an outlet, it charges fine. However, if I use the charger on my Thunderbolt display cable, the status reads "Not Charging"... sometimes. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it appears to toggle between charging and not charging. Is this a known issue with Macbook and Thunderbolt? I assume it should always be charging if it's plugged in and the battery is low.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Cable To Connect To Logitech Z-5500 Speakers

Dec 13, 2009

I'm looking at getting a MacBook Pro, and hooking it up to my Dell monitor and Logitech speakers when at home. Both the SP/DIF and coax connection on the speakers are free right now, so I need to know what cable I'd have to buy to connect the MacBook Pro to either of these 2 connections? I asked the online chat section of the Apple website, to which they replied they had no such cable, and proceeded to cut me off rather than providing a solution - doesn't exactly fill you with much confidence when buying into a premium product!

Can someone let me know what cable it is I require? It must be capable of producing 5.1 sound on the speakers.
