IMac :: What Cable Need To Connect To Dell 30" Monitor

Aug 8, 2010

I did just a bit of searching and found some cable answers but none that I thought fully answers my question, which is two-fold:

1. I am ordering a new 27" iMac but want to connect my Dell 30" monitor as a second monitor. I assume the iMac does not come with the necessary cable, but I'm not sure which one to buy. The Dell monitor is digital with a 2560x1600 resolution.

2. Would that same cable be able to connect a 2010 model Macbook Pro to the new iMac and/or the Dell?

The one area I feel Apple needs help is the multiple monitor situation. For years I have run laptops with 2-3 external monitors... I find myself having to go back to 2 monitors with either setup unless I buy some 3rd party hardware or shell out for a Mac Pro.

IMac :: Displaying Resolution On External Monitor With Dual Link DVI Cable?

May 4, 2010

I'm in the process of replacing my MBP with an early 2k9 iMac as my DAW machine. I'm shopping around for external monitors, and I'm leaning a 27" monitor that natively displays 2048 x 1152. My question is, if I get a dual link dvi cable- will my iMac be able to display this resolution on an external monitor?

PowerPC :: EMac And IMac File Sharing With Ethernet Cable And Other Cable?

Oct 12, 2010

I was wondering how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:Three Ethernet Cables Now how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? Also, I do not want to use CDs and have no CDs that came with the computers. I want to put Xubuntu on the eMac and Debian on the iMacs and erase the rest of the Hard Drives. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4 in my Signature.

can someone tell me a way to monitor ALL my internet usage per/month or spesific dates. I have looked at some widgets, but none of them do a good job. Please keep in mind that I connect via wireless, USB based 3G modem and ethernet. But I also browse/copy/move files on my local network. So I need true internet usage not including network traffic.

Mac Pro :: Cable To Get For New LCD Monitor?

Jul 30, 2008

I just bought a new 24 inch LCD monitor. It has a VGA, a DVD-D and a HDMI Port. I have a G5 Mac with a DVI-I and an ADC port. The monitor came with a VGA cable. The sales person sold me a DVI to DVI cable (single link, 18+ 1 pin), but I get this message on the screen - "check signal cable." Is this the wrong cable? I just moved so am thinking it might be that something's loose in the tower. Perhaps there is there a better way to connect the two. When I got home I read in the manual "Mac adapter For Apple Macintosh use, a separate plug adapter is needed to change the 15 pin high density (3 row) D-sub VGA connector on the supplied cable to a 15 pin 2 row connector." but that seems weird since neither of my ports are 2 rows. perhaps I should try DVI to HDMI? I do web design and video. Also, can you get these cables at Futureshop? I am now in a rather small town and don't have a Mac store.

MacBook Air :: MBA External Monitor/dvi Cable?

Mar 28, 2009

I hook up a Samsung LCD to my MBA via the Mini DVI cable and everything works great. However, when I unhook the cable (regardless of whether the Mac is on/off), the Mac doesn't pick up that it is now only on a single display, when opening apps (say Firefox), and opens them as if they were on the secondary monitor (so I can only see the very left hand edge). I can't imagine that I would need to minimize or drag the window to the MBA display prior to unplugging the cable, every single time...?

The only work around I have been able to find is drop the display resolution to 8x6 and grab the edge of the window and drag it over. I've tried "Detect Displays", restarting and other "tinkering" to no avail.

MacBook Pro :: Thunderbolt Monitor Cable Loose On It?

Feb 27, 2012

I bought my Macbook Pro last september along with my Thunderbolt monitor.Everything was working until today (yes today was my first time bringing my Macbook Pro elsewhere) and when I moved it, the display shut off.then I realized that when I just move the Thunderbolt plug around it would turn on and off the display depending which side I would hold. would it be a problem with the Monitor cable? or a problem with the Macbook Pro itself? both are still under warranty, so I'm not worried, but it saves me the trouble of lugging either (especially the monitor) back to the Apple store.

Mac Mini :: Cannot Get Monitor Cable To Fit In The Hdmi To Vga Adapter

Jun 2, 2012

I'm trying to plug my new mac mini into my Dell flat screen monitor.  It doesn't seem to fit my HDMI to VGA cable so I'm assuming that my cable is in fact a DVI?  The cable is actually a little too big for the VGA adapter and no spots for the screws.

Hardware :: Mini Display Port To DVI Cable Produces Blurry Images On Dell 2407 Monitor

Dec 24, 2010

I have a new Macbook Air 13", 4GB RAM, 2.13Ghz, 256GB SSD.

I'm connecting the Macbook with the Apple Mini Displayport to DVI connector to a DVI cable to a Dell 2407 monitor with a resolution of 1920x1200. The resulting image is blurry. The fonts are blurry and drop shadows on the screen flicker quite badly. The resolution on my Macbook is indeed set to 1920x1200 to match my Dell 2407.

Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is the problem with the Mini Displayport to DVI adapter?

I know for a fact that the Dell LCD and the DVI cable work fine with my Windows 7 box. I have tried two different DVI cables as well.

IMac :: Use Dell Monitor As Primary Monitor Connected?

Oct 22, 2009

I was surprised one day to find an inch of white line running from top to bottom on my screen. Then after a week it expanded to two inches white line, then suddenly it turned all black and I can't see two inches of my screen from the right edge. I was reading some forums and found out that I can use a dell monitor as a secondary monitor, but is it possible to use the dell monitor as the primary monitor in case the black line will spread throughout the entire iMac screen? so the iMac would serve as a stand alone processor like a regular desktop?

OS X :: IMac Specific Hard Drive Search

Apr 6, 2010

Can someone please give me the specifics on a 3.5 internal hard drive for my iMac G5 (17") running Leopard. My old HD was getting very full so I decided to replace it. I bought a Seagate 3.5 1TB at Staples ("good for PC or Mac"), brought it home, ripped into my iMac, removed the old HD and opened the new Seagate. Turns out it was for tower computers only. Took it back to Staples, where I learned that iMac HDs are Apple specific.

Called the local Apple store. Was told that they didn't carry HDs in stock but I could schedule an appointment with the Genius Bar and someone there could determine what I need. I know what I need -- a new HD --I just don't know where to get one or order it online because descriptions from online suppliers are not generous with the knowledge about what works with what. Never thought it would be so frustrating just to buy a replacement drive.

IMac :: Cable TV On New 27" IMac

Nov 16, 2010

I'm looking for the best solution to watch Cable TV on my iMac. I searched the forums many times looking for answers and the general consensus was to buy the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid. That's exactly what I did and was extremely disappointed with the quality. In the Elgato preferences, the highest live quality setting available is 720x480, which obviously looks awful when viewing fullscreen.To summarize, I'm looking for a piece of equipment that will allow me to: 1) need to be able to watch live Cable TV and 2) play my Wii on the new 27" iMac. The Hybrid does both but the quality is terrible
