Thanks for letting me know! Would you know if your macbook pro has the thunderbolt port that doubles as mini-display port?
I have a 2011 Mac Mini, a 2011 Macbook Air (both newest with thunderbolt ports that double as mini-display ports), and a 2008 Macbook pro (mini-display port). All of them should be able to drive this resolution screen. But basically this is what is happening:
- I turn on the monitor (a blinking blue light shows up on the lower right, I think that's on, right?)
- I plug in any of these machines using a Mini DP to Dual-Link DVI adapter (one that I bought used online, I was been super-cheap...).
- nothing happens
The monitor doesn't visibly light up, nor does any of my macs recognize the monitor. I tried playing with the power button - press and hold, etc. To no avail. Sometimes the blue light turns red, but that's it.
I am tempted to think either that there is compatibility issue between the monitor and my macs, or that I may have a bad Mini-DP to Dual-Link DVI cable? I had the seller test the monitor before shipping, so unless there is some shipping damage, I don't see how it could be a monitor issue.
I am going to try getting a brand new cable to try, but I wanted to see if you had similar issues.
