U2515H, MacBook Pro 2015, Dell mDP to DP cable does not?

Hi all

I just bought a MacBook Pro 15 "model mid 2015." I have a Dell U2515H monitor. The cable provided by Dell is a DisplayPort / Mini DisplayPort. I used this same cable with my Macbook Air late 2011 and it worked. I tried to use the same cable with the Macbook Pro that I bought and it doesn't work. I got an HDMI cable and only that I connected to my TV and that works very well. I wonder why it does not work with the DisplayPort cable since it worked with the old Macbook Air. This new crush does not accept this type of cable? Because if not, I'll have to buy another HDMI cable :-/

Thank you, Ralph

Problem solved just!

As incredible as it may seem, I realized that I was a plug in the side of the cable mini DisplayPort to the Macbook Pro!

I thought that these cables have been designed to have a CAP that prevents this sort of thing! :-(

I bet I wasn't the only one to do that.

  • MacBook Pro glued on the gray screen and does not start. Help, please!


    My 13 "MacBook Pro (mid-2009), running Snow leopard (10.6.8), has finally given up and won't start.

    I tried to boot into SafeMode several times, but the loading bar does not move and the laptop just completely stops.

    I also tried to boot in single user mode with the command fsck - fy, but this results in the following:

    disk 0 s 2: I / 0 error

    Invalid node structure


    * The Macintosh HD volume could not be completely checked.

    / dev/rdiskOs2 (hfs)

    You leave with signal 8

    I guess that means that there is something wrong with the hard disk and some corrupt files?

    My problem is that I have no time machine backups, so I would like to know if it is possible to do something to get to the top and running.

    That, I do not have an external drive with my main important files and photos on a failure, so is it possible to completely erase the computer so I can sell it at least?

    I really need help on what I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure it out!

    I'm not all techniques with regard to the material. I tried doing research and have seen things, which suggests that I should reinstall the OS X, this would imply in the disks provided with the laptop when the power?

    Any advice greatly appreciated!

    Boot from the DVD and run the check/repair disk utility and repair permissions until you get no errors.  Reformat the hard disk using Disk Utility/Erase Mac OS extended (journaled), then click on the Option button and select GUID. Then re-install the operating system.

    When you restart, use Setup Wizard to restore your data.

  • MacBook Pro and SanDisk Ultra II 960 GB does not

    I bought two SSDs to 960GB SanDisk Ultra II for installation in a Late 2009 27 inch iMac and a MacBook Pro mid-2012. I could absolutely not anything other than a white screen on the 27-inch. I could get the external computer to boot via USB, but when it is plugged in SATA, it wouldn't start. OWC had a few caveats on the NVidia SATA bargaining chips down to a 1.5GBs of speed when you try to bind to a 6 G drive. I replaced it with an Electra OWC 3 G Reader (which worked perfectly). I returned the unopened SSD.

    My next goal is to enter the SSD in the MBP. He chips Intel SATA and is not supposed to have bizarre problems. Once again, I have installed the operating system and started via the USB port, no problems. It does not start when installed internally via SATA. If I drill the old HD, it starts immediately. The SSD makes a folder with one? in the middle.

    I have repartioned the reader for Mac. I also tried to clone with all disk utility, same result. I guess I could try SuperDuper or clone of carbon. I just installed another OWC drive in an other iMac and used disk cloning utility, and it worked perfectly.

    I wish that I had bought the OWC drive now, but I'm stuck with this open disk and I would like to make it work. Has anyone else had problems? I think that the drive is bad, but when in a dock player, it works very well and will start the computer via USB.

    When the SSDS was to the iMac 27 inches, she would not even allow the target disk mode, ot any source of start-up. I really thought that the video card was defective at first, but this player has been creating chaos.

    All the words of wisdom are welcome.

    To make a long story short, it's the SATA cable. The computer would boot from a classic HD so I thouhgt the SATA cable was OK.  Apparently, when these cables fail, they can operate at low speed, but there still may not work at all in trying to negotiate a connection with a 6 G SSD speeds. I also noticed that with the wrong cable, the link negotiated with the convnetional reader speed was 1.5 Gbit/s which was lower than expected. I replaced the cable of a reputable vendor and I got another job of SSD. I think the SanDisk that I ended up returning was really beautiful AND compatible.

    I was clued in after a brand that I know with certainty was compatible would not work either. PowerBookMedic sells relaible cables. "cheap" replacements are not recommended.

    Hope this helps someone else.

  • MacBook pro 2015 Diode, heating problems


    I just bought a MacBook pro 2015, one with 2.8 GHZ, 16 GB RAM and ITB Flash. [old just four days]

    The question being, the first day of the machine as well as the charger were burning Red hot when I loaded for the first time, in subsequent attempts, heating got sorted out by itself.

    Nevertheless, I had installed the temperature gauge in the machine, I look one only a few videos YouTube youtube and navigation.

    Once in every two hours a message like

    The led O GPU temperature is 106 degrees, closing applications.

    Once I click on the tool, the temperature is now reset to 30 ° C. It seems that the temperature of the Diode is to reach 106 degrees, some app is closed (no one knows the tabs I have open in Safari are works well) and then it resets.

    Is it really a problem with the thermal conductive paste or a faulty diode.

    I go to the Apple store this Saturday? Can I return the laptop and request a new or a full refund.

    Can someone please advice?

    If you bought Apple with the last 14 days, you can return it for a full refund.

    Then you can buy a new one.

    What about Apple and they can exchange it without having to go the way of reimbursement.

  • I have a Macbook Pro 2015 retina and I wonder how the cycles of battery are calculated?

    I have a Macbook Pro 2015 retina and I wonder how the cycles of battery are calculated?

    If I load to 100% and then run it down on battery to 0% of course it counts as a battery cycle.

    If I recharge to 90% and run up to 5% or 10%, which count as a battery sprays?     Between what % are there?

    The reason I ask is that I try to keep the cumulative battery cycle count down.

    Thank you


    Whenever he finishes a full charge, it's a cycle.  If you charge 70% one day, then 30% another day, it's a cycle.

    The Apple site, I posted above, it explains very clearly.

    A cycle is counted when the battery has completed a 100% charge, not a discharge.

    I don't know where you got information about a speed of 0 RPM. The good idle speed is 1500 rpm, and the fans are still running. This is what cools the machine. If you see a 0 RPM fan; then, there's a major hardware problem.

I tried absolutely everything already to try to solve the problem as reseting; Landau, MSC, deleting of plist files, remove and reset pefferred adding new location and reset service order, pure networks install of El Capitan 10.11 and upgrade 10.11.2 and even get my card replaced airport and macbook pro replaced shorty after. Until I replaced it, it ran from El Capitan. And now the replaced macbook pro is running Yosemite 10.10.5 and the problem is still there.

    I found has temporarily solution which was to download nosleep Yosemite version extension program that disables the function sleep at all times, but eventually it will damage my screen. I would like to know if anyone finds a solution for this problem? My wifi works fine on all my other devices such as my: 2 pc, chrome book, iPad and iPhone.

  • MacBook pro 2015 stuck in Bluetooth Setup mode after commissioning, recognizes on the keyboard and track pad. SMC reset does not work.

    My Macbook Pro 2015 stopped periodically (and now permanently discontinued) responding on keyboard and touch pad Board. This seemed to start at the same time, I got a Bluetooth headset; When I turn on the computer, he's stuck in Bluetooth Setup mode. I tried to reset the SMC, and it does not work. I don't have a Bluetooth keyboard to even try with it. Also, I can't start in safe mode. It seems completely blocked. Any help you might be able to offer would be great!

    Hello rad trp,.

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple!

    From your post, I understand that your keyboard and trackpad on your MacBook Pro are unresponsive and now you see the Bluetooth set up screen on the computer. I also see that you tried to reset the SMC, but that doesn't seem to work because the built-in keyboard do not respond.

    I know that you do not have a bluetooth keyboard, you can connect, but you have a USB keyboard? Even a USB keyboard for a computer Windows will work. If you do, I would say connection that the keyboard and you use these keys to perform an SMC reset, but reset the PRAM as well. Instructions on both of these resets can be found in the links below if you need.
