External monitor

Hi all

I want to buy and connect an external monitor to my laptop Toshiba, which has a 15 point VGA connection. If I buy a monitor 'Speakerless', I need also to the external speakers?


No, you will not be able to use the built-in Laptop speakers.

  • Connection ethernet and external monitor

    Is it possible to connect an ethernet cable and a VGA adapter to a MAC AIR at the same time?  I use my crush on internet in my school and I would like to use an external monitor at the same time.

    There are two options: a dear TB hub that allows you to add additional ports or a USB Ethernet adapter. The USB adapter will be slower, but depending on the speed of your school's network you may not notice a difference.

  • MacBook Pro retina 15 inch heats up when it is connected to the external monitor


    My problem: When I connect my monitor (LG IPS277L) temperature of my Macbook Pro starts to heat upward. This problem often occurs when I use Facetime.

    I found it really strange because I should have a pretty good Macbook Pro for this.

    MacBook Pro (15 inch, retina, medio 2015)

    Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7

    Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    Graphics card: Iris Pro 1536 MB Intel / AMD Radeon R9 M370X

    El Captain 10.11.6 OSX

    I hope that someone recognizes this problem and wants to share their solution.

    When you connect to an external monitor, you use the AMD Chip for graphics (without the external screen, most of the software needs only the graphics engine Intel).  It attracts more power and therefore heats up.  All MacBook Pro for this to some extent.  This should be considered normal.  If the computer is actually overheating, it will stop.

  • Half the Office disappears when you unplug the external monitor

    I have a MacBook (early 2011) with a single office shared between two monitors - with one hand on the internal screen and the other half on a Dell 23 inch. The Dell is my first when I use both at the same time. Until a few months ago, when I unplugged the external monitor, all windows automatically appears in the monitor to the laptop, including the menu bar and dock.

    After an operating system upgraded a few dos systems (I'm on version of El Capitan.6), when I unplug the screen seems not to register - in other words, the left side of my office, including the menu bar and the dock, and all the apps that were there just to disappear. So my laptop seems to think that the other view is always connected and direct, unless I restart with the detached monitor. (I unchecked 'Displays have separated spaces') in Mission Control.

    Is that what I can do to force the Office to redesign the internal screen? (Note that the display is a Dell S2330MX, which seem not to support any Mac OS - so who could answer the question here.) Thank you

    I've known who issues from time to time, try to close and reopen the lid, which needs to redraw your office.

  • External monitor flickering Macbook 2016

    I have a Macbook 2016 and an Apple USB - C for Multi AV-HDMI adapter and a LogiLink USB - C for adpater DisplayPort.

    I am using a Dell 3008WFP as an external display monitor (maximum resolution 2560 x 1600 @60 Hz) with my MacBook, but it doesn't seem to work well.

    The monitor will often empty after a short time ('economy' mode) or only occasionally displays a picture and then turns off again. Using a LogiLink USB - C for Displayport is a bit more stable then the adapter Apple, but also often suffers the same problem.

    On a small monitor Samsung 1920 x 1080, the Apple Multi AV adapter seems to work perfectly well, but on the Dell, it is not stable (via HDMI to a resolution of 1920 x 1200, as the Dell only supports supported resolutions higher on DVI or DisplayPort).

    The map is updated latest firmware 2.33. Is there a problem with my MacBook (again)? Or is it a software problem? Is there a work around? Does anyone have a good experience with the MacBook to [email protected] on an external display?

  • 10.11.6 beat external monitor

    I have a MBP of 2015 the retina with a Benq 27 '' LCD monitor connected via HDMI. Everything was working just dandy and candy, until what I've updated OSX this morning and after restart - no monitor can be found. I tried SMC and NVRAM reset without success. Obviously fed the Mac and the monitor down and up several times too. Tried to "Detect displays" - nothing. Any ideas?

    Hello cameronreilly,.

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community Support from Apple. Use an external monitor everyday with my MacBook Pro, so I know how useful it can be, and I will do everything I can to help. You were on your way to a very good start with resetting the SMC and the NVRAM. Here what I would recommend is starting up from your Mac in a test user to see if the problem is specific to your user account or if it is systemic.

    To do this, you can open your system preferences and select «Users & groups» Then, click the icon of a padlock at the bottom and enter your password to unlock the options. Click the plus sign (+) to add a new user. Don't forget to make the administrator user. Once the account is set up, log on your current account and in the new test user. If the monitor is not detected in the test user, I recommend reinstall the update by using the recovery mode. This will not delete the files from your mac. This article will guide you in this process: How to reinstall OS X

    If you experience problems or have questions, the entire community is here to help.

  • Connection Mac Book Pro for 2 external monitors


    I need help around to confirm if it is possible to connect 2 external monitors to a Mac Book Pro. I currently have a Targus docking station and it works for my work which is a lenovo but does not work for the Mac Book laptop. I bought the book of Mac in 2010, does not have a thunderbolt connection, but has a mini display port connection. The external monitors I have Samsung LU28E590DS/XY - 28 "UHD monitor with at least 2 x HDMI and 1 x Display port connections. Need to display a set up as main and the other scope.

    exactly, including more than 50 computers called MacBook Pro are you using? The more accurate description is by designation of MacBook Pro 6.2.

    What version of OS are you running?

    What model Targus Docking station? Which interface is used for this Targus Docking Station? What guarantee do you have with the seller that it works without problem on your Mac?

  • External monitor works but integrated screen is not


    I have a model of Macbook Pro 13 of the retina (mid-2013) .

    A few months back the display has stopped working, but when I hooked to an external monitor everything worked as expected except the screen of course.

    I took it to the service center and a descent computer repair shop and they both said that display connection with the logic board is fried and they need to fix the logic board that retina display is fine.

    The price they are quoting is about $ 900, which is not fair.

    The logic card cannot be repaired?

    anyone else in a similar situation?

    If all the otherwise failed I think I'll delete the entire display of macbook. Someone knows how to do this?

    Thank you!

    Welcome to the CSA!

    Because of the tiny parts and connections on a logic board, repair is usually not an option. I don't say it can't be done, but it's hard to find someone who can / will work on resolder delicate bits on a LB (redistribution) without making a mess of labor law.

    You live in the United States? If so, ask about a "repair." Instead of working on the computer in the Apple Store, they send to Apple rehabilitation center where they pretty much fix everything what they find wrong inside (with the exception of the display unit itself) for a flat rate that is much lower than the cost that you quoted for repair in the store. I believe that the current price for this service is approximately US$ 315.

    The only downside I see is that the repair takes about a week, largely during the transportation to and from the depot.

    If you are not in the United States, ask anyway. I don't know what Apple has implemented for this kind of repair outside the United States.

  • External monitor only up to 720 p using HDMI

    I recently bought a Samsung curved (S27D590C; 1080 p). My setup is a MacBook Pro 13 "(mid-2012), connected to the screen using an adapter 3-in-1 (mini DisplayPort to VGA, DVI and HDMI). When I use the VGA, I can get up to 1080 p. For some reason, I can only 720 p when you use the HDMI cable.

    The HDMI cable is probably good as I am able to get a 1080 p using a Windows laptop without adapters.

    Additional information: by using the same configuration (MacBook + 3-in-1 adapter + HDMI cable), I am able to connect to another TV which has a native resolution of about 720 p.

    Finally, connecting with the HDMI, my MacBook is able to detect the monitor but the monitor does is display a blank screen.

    I would really appreciate everyones help, because this is my first purchase of external monitor. Thank you.

    Looks like you can't get good resolution on a monitor, and you get just nothing to display on another using your MacBook Pro. I would use the following article to help you get that resolved. There's a lot in there and some of it is basic, but it should lead you to getting this problem:

  • MacBook 12 "and external monitors - experiences

    That I have not found much info on using a MacBook 12 "with external monitors (but have found problems), I thought I would post my experiences here for the benefit of other researchers:

    MacBook 12 "with Dell u3415w (3440 x 1440) via a USB - C adapter Digital AV Multiport (HDMI):

    VIDEO: Experienced random black screens on the external monitor. After update to El Capitan 10.11.4 version which included an update of the firmware of the adapter, the problem become constant, with the external screen crashing to black seconds nonstop. Switching the HDMI on the MHL port on the monitor completely solved this problem.

    VIDEO: I'm only able to get a resolution of 2560 x 1080 scaling to fill the screen, which is a little fuzzy but fine for office tasks - selection reduced 3440 x 1440 or "best resolution for this monitor" translates into a look, windowed 16:9, with black bars on the right and left. I have not yet found solution to reach ultra-wide 21:9 angle at the native resolution (but would appreciate a).

    VIDEO: Macbook 12 discs easily display 3440 x 1440 for tasks of office such as word processing and surfing. Video full HD YouTube is generally good, but gets now and then a little agitated.

    AUDIO: Holding Option and clicking on the speaker icon in the menu bar show selectable option for the audio output to the device (monitor). On this screen, it seems to be a problem of reception of the signal of the Macbook when another device is connected to another port. In my case, a PC connected to the DisplayPort would be "laundered" the audio signal of Mac but ONLY if the PC has been out audio through external speakers, not the monitor (a lot of trial and error to discover this. When the audio PC sent ONLY to the screen, the monitor then accept the audio signal of the Mac, too. But have an external speaker connected via a cable audio 3.5 mm to the pc mobo (taken minijack) would somehow replace the TWO PC and Mac audio signal to the monitor. Something to do through the DP connection maybe)

    with ASUS PB27Q (2560 x 1440) via an adapter, no problem.

    with ASUS PA328Q more ASUS PB287Q (3840 x 2160 or '4 K') using the same adapter. Cursor extremely lag/Office up to that you enable DP (Displayport) 1.2 through settings on the screen of the monitors. This allows the Macbook to drive a monitor 4K at 30 Hz, which is always a little laggy, but realistic enough to be productive for word processing, surfing, etc. Would not recommend a 4K monitor for Macbook 12 for a really "nice" experience until / unless that 60 Hz is an option.

    Hope someone finds this is useful.

  • using the iMac 27 inch mid 2011 as an external monitor with a PC via mini DisplayPort
