MacBook Pro :: No Display Output From 15" To Dell U2311H?

I use a mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable to connect the two devices. But no signal is detected on the Dell U2311H. Tried to power cycled the monitor but still no luck. The situation is the same if I use bootcamp to startup Windows XP.

Called up Dell and they sent me a replacement today. Same problem.

Hardware :: Dell U2311H Rotation - How To Configure
I'm looking to buy the ultrasharp U2311H, I've seen that you can rotate the screen 90 degrees (would be perfect for coding/reading). How does this feature of the display work with the mac? If I physically rotate the screen would the mac recognize the new position or how do you configure it for it to display everything the correct way?

Hardware :: Can I Use Dell U2311H With MBP 2.2 GHz
I am thinking of buying a Dell U2311 for use with my Macbook Pro 2.2 GHz.

Is this a good display for my computer? Any problems I might have?

If I buy this monitor, what cables will I need to connect it? I have the DVI adapter that came with my MBP but it is really short. I'll probably need some type of extension cable correct?

Hardware :: Unable To Get Display / Dell Monitor Connected To Macbook Pro MINI Display
I hooked up my macbook pro to a mini display port to a dvi -> hdmi to my tv no problem. However, when I hooked up the mini display -> dell monitor, I get nothing. The screen is black. The weird thing is that my macbook pro recognizes that a second monitor is plugged in... it just won't display anything

MacBook Aluminum :: Dell Display Cant Display Video Mode
I have a Dell LCD display which I have connected to my Macbook with a MiniDisplay Port to DVI converter, and then a DVI cable running to the display. My computer seems to acknowledge the display, but the display reads "Cannot display this video mode, change computer display input to 1360 x 768 @ 60Hz". When I go to System Preferences > Displays > Gather Windows, I can see the settings for the Dell display. They are the correct settings, the same as above.

Is there anything I am doing wrong or need to change to get the display to work? I would not like to mirror the displays, I would like to have it as an extended desktop.

MacBook Pro :: Retina Can't Use External 30" Dell Display
I've connected my 30" Dell 3007WFP display to my Macbook Pro 15" Retina laptop with Apple's adapter for Thunderbolt to DVI-D Dual Link.  The display is only receiving Single Link instead of Dual Link, limiting the resolution to 1280x800 instead of 2560x1600. 

Has anyone else seen this problem?  On the forums at, a few other people have reported this issue.  One person there has reported that his adaptor (same model as I have) provided this display with Dual Link when connected to a Macbook Air but not when connected to the MBP Retina. If that's true, then it sounds like there's a defect in the MBP Retina. At the least, should I return the adapter until Apple makes some kind of a statement about whether this can be fixed?

MacBook Pro :: Black Screen After Waking Up From Sleep With Connected Dell Display?
I have a 2 month old 13" MBP which I absolutely love. The only hitch is that there is an oddity when connected to my Dell 2008wfp display. It only happens when I wake the MBP from sleep. A number of things happen sometimes. Usuaully, when I wake the MBP from sleep, i get a black screen on both displays and all I can see and control is the cursor. Sometimes the main display will be black, but the MBP display will show the desktop wallpaper, but again, I can only see and control the mouse cursor. It should also be worth mentioning that the keyboard is rendered non-functional as well.

Sometimes, OS X will appear on both displays, with mouse cursor active, keyboard inactive, but I am unable to click anything or interact with anything OS X.

Anyway, I'm at the point where I need to mention this because it happens quite frequently and its getting rather annoying. The only way I can get out of this hang, is to cold reboot the machine. It happens everyday and at least 50% of the time I wake the MBP from sleep. When not connected to the display, I never get this occurrence. Also, this display worked perfectly when I used to own the classic 15" MBP, so its hard for me to pinpoint what exactly is the anomaly that is happening.

Anyone else experiencing this same issue? I am using a mini display port to DVI adapter to the Dell display.

MacBook Pro :: Dell Monitor Not Working As External Display / Screen Goes Blank
I have a MacBook Pro 13 for portability to my classes at the university and a Dell 2209WA as an external monitor. One of the few good IPS monitors I could find around for cheap.

The monitor works fine in mirror mode with the MacBook Pro, but as an external display only it does not work. It attempts to wake up and then you see power savings mode again and the screen goes black as if there was no connection. Not sure what exactly the problem here is. Drivers?

The monitor works great with a Mac Mini I have and it works great in mirror but not in external display mode(the lid of the MacBook Pro closed). Anybody know of this issue? The cable is good and the MacBook Pro is not that old(a few weeks).

Newer displays just go into power saving mode and older VGA displays just are blank. Even tried DVI to VGA adapter on mini DP to DVI adapter with same issue.

MacBook Pro :: External Display Causes Noise In Sound Output?
I use studio monitors (speakers) with my macbook pro 13 (2010) and a samsung 1080p external display. Whenever I plug the display in, it causes a hum in the speakers, and weirdly the pitch of this hum varies depending on the brightness of the contents of my screen. I have borrowed my friends USB audio interface, and I still experience the same problem, except the hum is now cleaner and louder. I would assume this rules out problems with the internal sound card.  

In both cases, the hum stops when the sound card/output 'goes to sleep' (ie after there has been no sound output for a few seconds). Also the hum only starts when the computer is outputting to the display. In the few seconds between physically plugging the display in, and the mac sending a signal to it, there is no hum. This is why I'm starting to think this may be a problem with the computer and not the monitor. The monitor is a cheap (£120) monitor - samsung p2270HD, and also has a TV tuner and stuff. 

What I need to know is whether this is a problem with the computer, bleeding the signal through to the sound output, or whether it's my kind of crappy monitor. Another thing, might it help if I changed from VGA (analogue) to DVI (digital) video output?

The text looks a lot different from the Macbook's display. I got it to 1080p and stuff - and yes, it's showing the full 1080p. But how do I get the text to look more like the Mac's text? My Macbook display looks so much sharper. The text on the Dell looks very not isn't thick, etc.

MacBook Pro :: Using MBP Display As Video Output Xbox 360
I've got quite a simple question about an MBP and an Xbox 360, which I'm sure some have asked and others have answered before, but I'm looking for a straight-forward response given the situation I find myself into. So I've got the two devices, and I'd like to use the MBP's display as a video output for the 360. What I've also got is a VGA adapter for the 360, so I could connect it to a monitor instead of a TV. So basically, is this achievable, and if it is, what else do I need, in case I need anything else? Sorry for the improper way of writing this message, but all I have is an HTC Desire, and I find it quite difficult to type very well.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Get Display With Dell Monitor / Monitor Do Not Show Up In System Profile
I have a brand new 15" MacBook Pro, the DisplayPort to Dual Link adapter, and a Dell 3007WFP monitor. This monitor worked fine with my previous generation MacBook Pro. When I connect it with the Dual Link adapter, I get no signal to the monitor and the adapter and monitor do not show up in the System Profiler, so I have no idea what the adapter firmware is. I've tried this on a current generation 17" MacBook Pro too and get the same result. Has anyone else had this experience? Any fixes?

I've already exchanged the DisplayPort to Dual Link adaptor once and the new one does the exact same thing. The MacBook Pro works fine connected to a 24" Dell monitor with the standard DisplayPort to DVI adaptor.

Mac Pro :: Dell Ultrasharp 24" 2408 Versus Apple LED Cinema Display
I really want a new monitor.

and now i have last 2 choice.

Dell Ultrasharp 24" 2408 vs. Apple LED Cinema Display

1) I'm using mac pro early 2008 that make me must to buy Apple's 4870 or GT 120 to drive 24" ACD, that make all money I must pay for apple is around $944 (1-yr apple care) vs. Dell at $560 (with 5-yr warranty). is it worth?

2) I hate glossy screen but love a new ACD design very much. some people say 24" iMac screen (S-IPS) make his eye pain when using that screen for a long time do your guys think about this ?

3) my current monitor is 20" ACD, my new monitor must be better (or equal) than it. can your guy say 24" Dell is better than 20"ACD in term of color. (old S-IPS in 20" vs. S-PVA)

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Get Audio Output / No Output Devices Found
We received a few new MBP 13 / 15" at work a week ago and three of them have non-working audio. The weird thing is that the boot up chime works but in System Prefs, it says "no audio device" on my MBP 13"...?

I took it to a "genius" bar today and they had no clue. Tried booting off an external drive - same problem. I don't want to send it in for repair - its BRAND NEW! - and I'm off on a 3-week trip next week. I'm hoping its some sort of wacky driver problem (remember: the chime on boot works).

Hardware :: Dell 2407WFP A04 Versus Dell G2410 Versus Dell 2209WA Versus Samsung F2380
I'm looking for a new monitor to go with my MBP, and I'm stuck trying to choose between the ones listed above.

The 2407WFP is a couple of years old now I guess, but it's the rev A04 version, which supposedly fixed the (few) problems with what was otherwise meant to be a great screen. It's an sPVA screen.

I've heard good reviews of the G2410, with its LED backlighting. It's still a TN panel and I hear so much bad stuff about them.

The 2209WA is an eIPS panel which I like the sound of, but it's smaller and lower resolution.

The F2380 is a cPVA panel, the image quality looks better but I've heard bad things about blacks on this panel.

Mac Pro :: No Output To Display / LCD Monitor
MacPro 8 core Nvidia 8800, RAID card - arrived 2/25. Tried second monitor; monitor is blank (and turned on, and says "digital signal" when unplugging display connector from the machine, so it's recognizing the connection, monitor is fine on old G5). RMA'd for a new 8800, rec'd that on 2/28 - same result, so it's probably not the card. Tried 8800 card in different slots, so probably not a slot. Ram lights flash, HD spins, power light is on, so likely not power supply. Motherboard or RAM is only other thing I can think of, or maybe some kind of incompatibility with the 8800. Also, the fans on both 8800's run at what seems like full power when turning the machine on - is that typical for the 8800? Maybe that's a symptom of the problem; it's a lot louder than I would prefer.

Mac Pro :: No Display Output And Fans Fast Speed
I'm writing on behalf of the studio where I work. A Mac Pro (unknown spec) is being fed into a small Apple brand monitor. When the Mac Pro is switched on, nothing appears on the display (I've tried with a different monitor but getting the same result). Keyboard and mouse are unresponsive. After a couple of minutes the cooling fans in the Pro go absolutely mental! Full blast! The machine isn't even hot to the touch, or situated in a hot room. The producer told me that the Mac is left on - constantly. Could the VGA output have broken due to constant use? and why do the fans go crazy?

Hardware :: Calibrating DELL U2711 Display
i have recently spent several evenings re-calibrating my Dell U2711 display and have finally come up with a fantastic image so I thought I'd share my results for those having trouble calibrating this display (given the low quality AG coating this display comes with, calibration can be quite tough). Plus, during my Google search, trying to find some calibration tips, I was surprised at how little I found. Most of the forums I went to are discussions about the AG coating with hardly any talk about calibration. So, because of that, I figured I should share my calibration steps.

I edit video so I managed to come up with a calibration that shows great shadow detail (without crushing the blacks) yet still gives a deep, rich look for the graphics as well. Everything from the highs to the lows look great! And parts of the screen such as the dock look so vivid it's hard to distinguish from an Apple Display in terms of richness and clarity (without the shine, of course). You can still see the grain of the AG coating on bright areas of the screen but it's hardly distracting at all. On a side note: this is a great display for editing video even with the AG coating but if you edit still photography I would stay away from the U2711 entirely: still image + still grain = disaster!

Unfortunately I don't know much about internal computer system settings or if all displays that Dell ships are identical, so I can't say for sure that the calibration I did will work for everyone. However, if all Dell Displays and Apple computers (I use a 2010 MacPro) are 100% identical when shipped, then, if you follow my steps exactly, you should be able to come up with something similar to what I got. But I can't say for sure:

Step 1: Setting up the display.

Set the contrast to 100% and the brightness to 80%. Set the Gamma to (Mac), the Mode Selection to (Graphics), and the Preset Mode to (Custom Color). Now, in custom color leave the green at 100% and set both the Red and Blue to 98%.

Step 2: Setting up the Mac.

Run your Mac's Display Calibration Assistant (located in the Display section of System Preferences). Select the checkbox for Expert Mode and keep clicking continue till you get to the section with the lined boxes with the Apple logo in the middle.

Now, for all 5 'lined box' steps, make the Apple logo disappear using only the left slider (do not touch the right slider at all). To make the Apple logo disappear (blend into the box) you must squint your eyes until the lines that make up the box itself become one solid color (my eyes were about 75% closed). Take your time and make sure you are confident that the Logo is gone.

Then, when you come to the gamma screen either select 2.2 or 2.15 - the proper setting should be 2.2, however, I found the blacks to be not as deep as I'd like them to be (most likely because of the AG coating) so I choose 2.15 which I found to be the key to giving the display the richness it needs to look great.

When you get to the 'Target White Point' screen, select the checkbox 'use native white point'.

Then save you calibration profile and exit the assistant. Now go back to your Dell display settings and set the brightness to 100% and you should be good to go! Note: if you find your screen to be a little too dark, re-calibrate but try selecting 70% or 60% for the brightness during step one. That way, when you raise the brightness to 100% at the end, it should be somewhat brighter.

I hope this works as great for you as it did me! And even if it doesn't, hopefully you will end up with something half decent. But either way, please do share your results - I know there are a lot of people out there struggling with this display because of it's AG coating and some are even attempting to remove the AG coating with bad results. I even considered removing mine but now I am glad I didn't take the risk (I suck at doing those type of mods, haha). Now, my display looks almost as good as an Apple display (and without any glare!

Hardware :: Dell 3008wfp Display Calibration
Just curious if someone could post their display settings (or icc file) for the dell 3008wfp. I'm having a hard time calibrating the monitor without a dedicated calibration device like spyder.

I realize there can be monitor to monitor variations but for my non-professional purposes I'd like to just get it close.

My two concerns:

1) Brightness is blinding

2) Colors look washed out (with my current pathetic attempt to calibrate).

Hardware :: Calibrating A Dell U2410 Display
I recently got the Dell U2410 and I felt like out of the box the color and everything was way off, and certainly no where near matching how things looked on my MBP screen. I went through the little calibration process in the system preferences (with the advanced options) and it's somewhat better (I don't think the gamma was at 2.2 before), but it still doesn't seem so great. The brights look kind of blown out, the shadows are a bit too black, and some of the colors look off. Also, if I look at a solid color I can see moving lines (almost like a much more mild version of when you record a computer screen with a camera running at a different refresh rate).

Did I get a crappy one, or do I need to do something different? I had heard so many good things about this monitor and now I'm considering returning it for a 24" ACD.

MacBook Aluminum :: Can I Output To Component Video From The Mini Display Port
I need to connect a MacBook Aluminum (Late2008) with a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and a Mini DisplayPort to an HDTV that doesn't have an HDMI connection. I'd like to output the highest quality that that TV can accept, but the only HD option on the TV is Component video (Y, Pr, Pb).

I have the Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter.

I have found a cable to convert from DVI to Component [URL]

stern warning:

"THIS CABLE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO CONNECT YOUR COMPUTER'S DVI PORT TO THE COMPONENT INPUT ON YOUR HDTV unless your video card supports component out function through it's DVI port (please confirm with your video cards documentation before purchasing. Some require adapter, not this cable.)"

This is because Y, Pr, Pb is an analog signal, and many DVI connectors do not output to analog.

The connector on my Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter appears to be a DVI-D which I believe is digital-only.

The site also warns the video card must be capable of sending Y, Pr, Pb... which are not the standard RGB signals (so the card would need to understand how to send both).

After an evening of searching these support forums (couldn't find the term component anywhere) and Googling (which leads me towards this not working) I cannot find a definitive answer.

Power Mac G5 :: Dell Says Need To Update Display Drivers - How To Find
I'm running an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro graphics card with a Dell 24inch 2407WFP monitor, and my original purchase has run fine on my machine for almost 3 years. However, I recently ran into problems with the power button and Dell sent me a refurbished model that does not work when connected via VGA (works fine via DVI). They are trying to tell me that I need to update my drivers and refresh rate (they recommend 75 or 72hz) but they cannot instruct me on how to do this because I'm on a Mac. They told me to contact mac and see if they have any updates for my display drivers, as they are confident the problem is not the monitor, but the drivers.

I find it very interesting that my original has worked great since day one (no drivers necessary) yet this refurbished model would suddenly require updated drivers.

IMac Intel :: Simultaneous Audio Output From Both Mini Display Port And Audio Output Port?
I was wondering if someone who already has audio+video output through the mini displayport set up can be so kind and answer the following questions for me:

Can audio be output simultaniously from 3.5mm audio port as well as the mini displayport? That is, if I output both video and audio to my reciever through the 2010 iMac's mini Diplayport, can i use the standard audio output port to provide line input for a further set of (active) speakers (analog would be fine)?

In the case both outputs CANNOT work simultaniously, which one will work if i have both plugged in? If the mini displayport has higher rank (or priority or what whatever i should call the one that works when both outputs are plugged in), and the reciever it is plugged into is switched off, will audio automatically switch to the standard audio port? Same question goes if the standard audio output port has higher rank/priority?

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hardware :: Preferably Dell Monitor That's As Good As Apple Cinema Display?
I'm deciding to buy myself a new mac pro coming around Jan-Feb and since mac pro's cost sooo much I'm cutting money on every corner; from buying only on amazon to using magazine coupons. The biggest money waster in my opinion is the 22' Led Cinema display apple sells. It costs around 900$ to buy an apple display which hasn't been updated for 3+ years when new Dell monitors of the same size (with camera installed and quality optional speakers) cost roughly about 400 max? I know apple displays are premium but extra 500 bucks is ridiculous.

Mac Mini :: Dell Monitor - Energy Preferences Set To Turn Display Off After 15 Minutes
I have my 09 mini connected to a Dell E177FP and I have the energy preferences set to turn the display off after 15 minutes. The problem is that the display never turns off. It just sits at the "check signal" screen as if it was not plugged into anything. How can I get the monitor to go into standby mode?
