MacBook Pro :: Retina Can't Use External 30" Dell Display

May 7, 2012

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 macrumors.com, 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 :: External Display Is Not Waking / Retina Display Flashes Through Different Screen Views

Sep 4, 2014

My external display (HP w2207) seems to conflict with my MacBook Pro (15 inch Retina display, early 2013) since I upgraded MacBook OS to 10.9.4.The external display works at initial boot of Mac but does not work after OS sleeps and I attempt to awaken, and while the external display is not waking, the Retina display flashes through different screen views, which only partially reflect my normal screen, or do not reflect my normal screen at all.

OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

MacBook :: Dell External Monitor And Get Display?

Apr 9, 2010

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 anti-aliased...it isn't thick, etc.

MacBook Pro :: Using Retina With External Display?

Jun 15, 2012

Currently I have a MBP 15" and use it on a daily basis with both the built-in display and an external 20" (1680x1050) display. I'm getting a new MBP retina and don't know how OS X is going to manage two displays with such a big difference in dots per inch. Will the "retina-ready" apps look just fine on the retina and enormous on the external?

MacBook Pro :: Dell Monitor Not Working As External Display / Screen Goes Blank

Oct 28, 2009

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).

MacBook Pro :: 2012 With Retina Display Won't Recognize External Hard Drive

Jun 20, 2012

I have 2 Macbook Pro's, a 2009 and this brand new one I got today. My external hard drive is a 1 TB clickfree. It has worked for months on my old Mac but when I plug it into my new mac it doesn't even show up in finder or disk utility. I tried the USB ports with another device and they work fine. So it isn't a hard ware issue. The cables are USB 3.0. The external hard drive model number is HD2037N3.I have tried taking everything off (huge pain) and reformatting the drive and still it doesn't recognize it! how I can get my Mac to recognize it?

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.

MacBook Pro :: How Do Softwares That Aren't Retina Compatible Look On Retina Display

Jun 12, 2012

How do software that aren't retina compatible yet look on the MBP Retina Display? From my own experience as a developer when using regular sized images and resolutions on the iPhone 4, they come out as blurry. I was thinking perhaps the same thing will occur if the software isn't retina compatible? I e 2x in GUI size and scaled down?

MacBook Pro :: 2013 15" Retina / Dell UP2414Q -  HDMI Randomly Blanks

Jun 3, 2014

I have a Dell UP2414Q connected via HDMI to my late 2013 15" retina MBP. The built in display is off (clamshell mode).

Sometimes, the display randomly blanks and the monitor reports no signal. This occurs continuosly for a few minutes and then the display goes back to normal. Sometimes I have to plug in/plug out the monitor to make it recover. /var/log/system.log shows no logs while these blinks occur.

MacBook :: Putting Display To Sleep On New With Retina Display?

Jun 16, 2012

I'm used to using the keystrokes control-shift-eject to put the display to sleep without activating the screensaver or putting the whole computer to sleep. 

Since the new Macbook Pro with Retina Display lacks an eject key, the best I have been able to do is set a hot corner. I don't like this as much -- especially since it is possible to trigger the hot corner without intending to.

MacBook Pro :: Retina Display - Is 8GB Good Enough

Jun 14, 2012

I can't imagine why I would need any more than 8GB since I'm not a professional photographer or video editor or whatever, so I'm planning on going with the base model. Smart idea? The only reason I'm even considering getting the 16GB is because the RAM isn't upgradable and I'm somewhat scared I might regret not getting the 16GB when the computer's a bit older and 16GB start to become the standard amount of RAM- if that ever happens?

Magsafe 2 For Retina Display Macbook Pro

Jun 15, 2012

I've had two different MacBook Pro's since 2006.I went through 4 magsafe power adapters as the cable coming straight off the connector always began to permanently bend at the magsafe connection point such that I didn't trust it from an electrical safety point of view (after seeing one arc at that point a time or two).Then when I bought what would be my 5th power adapter, much to my positive surprise, Apple had done a redesign that had the cable coming out at a right angle with repect to the way the older ones had the cable come out.They also beefed up how the cable comes out of the magsafe end.Now I see a picture of the 85W power adapter for the new Retina display macbook pro I am planning to buy soon. And it looks like they've reverted to the old "wire straight out from the connector" approach.

That would be a significant step backward for me as where I have to plug in my mac (to the right of where I sit) having a straight cable coming out from the left of the mac is just going to cause me to start wasting power adapters again.Might I be able to continue to use the 85W power adapter I currently have on my 17 inch 2009 macbook pro? And it's not the original power adapter but one I bought maybe in 2011 or so.I love this one where the cable leaves in the direction heading out away from the top of the mac rather than the ones that came out straight to the left.And the picture of the new one appears to come out straight to the left again.And what do you even call the power adapter I have that I bought in about 2011 where the cable comes out at a right angle to the magsafe connector itself?

MacBook Pro :: Retina Display Burn-in?

Jun 16, 2012

I first noticed this after my MBP [Retina] had gone to sleep, but: when returning to the login screen (since I have it set to require a password whenever the computer is idle long enough) I noticed what appeared to a very faint ghosting primarily noticeable on darker backgrounds. After messing around with it a bit, there seems to be a fairly consistent in-display ghosting that occurs without much time at all; I was able to leave my screen on (a little above half-brightness) for about 10-15 minutes and the ghosted "burn" would be of the screen I left it on (which I deliberately reconfigured so that everything would be a new position). Is this a normal thing that I just have to get used to? It's not really noticeable at all in standard use.

MacBook Pro :: DB Value Of The Cooling Fans For The New One With Retina Display?

Jun 12, 2012

Just like the title says I wanted to know what is the max and/or average dB value / noise level for the cooling fans of the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display.I saw that there are asymmetrically spaced impeller blades to reduce noise, but also it says "reducing tonal impact". So there seems to be a noticeable noise level? I work in very quiet locations and have good ears, so I wondered if I better don't get one of these. I'm currently using an iMac 27" and once the hard disks are running at full speed after starting up I cannot hear anything.

MacBook Pro :: Retina Display And USB Super-drive?

Jun 19, 2012

Just wanted to let everyone know I had to update Mac OSX to be able to use the superdrive on the new macbook pro retina display.  Before that it would show me what was on the disk but I couldn't access it.  Even after I updated it I had to browse through finder to find the drive to be able to run what was on the disk, as it didn't pop up automatically.

MacBook Pro :: Retina Display And Streaming Non HD Video

Jun 21, 2012

how does non HD video content look on the MBP-R in Full Screen mode? 

Is its blury like the non optimized Apps or website content? Is it even more blurry? 

Reason why I am asking: 

Watching series online on a regular screen pretty often looks ok but not great. Depending on the internet speed and the movie qualitity you can see the compression in the picture and so see the pixel. How does this look on the new retina display? 

Has anyone of the early owner time and motivation to check and post a screenshot?
