My macbook pro no longer connects to my TV with the mini dvi to hdmi adapter. A while ago the computer fell down and hit the cable. How can I tell if the computer is working ok. Doesn't show mirroring any more. Was working while watching a movie but when I pulled it out from the computer and put it back in the system would no longer mirrorr the screen on the TV.

The best option is an appointment at an Apple store genius bar.  The evaluation will be for FREE!

  • My macbook pro no longer connects to my TV with the mini dvi to hdmi adapter. It was working fine now I cant get it to output to the Tv. Any ideas?

    My Macbook pro no longer outputs to my vizio led tv. It was working fine now I cant get any picture. It just says no signal. It is not the hdmi or the adapter because it works fine with my other tv. Any ideas on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated. Please be as specific as possible. Thanks. BTW--I am using the mini dvi to hdmi adapter in case that was unclear.

    Since you say that the same connectors work on your other TV is suggests that the fault is not in the connectors but your Vizio TV.  I would check the settings on the Vizio TV.  Verify that is is set to receive HDMI input.  Perhaps you or some one else has inadvertently changed them.  Pressing the wrong buttons on a remote control device can do that.  (I am assuming no changes were made in SYSTEM PREFERENCES>DISPLAYS)

  • When I try to use Google Chrome with FireFox installed my computer slows down and also crashes. How can I use both together?

    I have tried several times to use Firefox and Google Chrome on my computer at the same time. When I do the computer runs slow, page scrolling is erratic, and occasionally it will crash. If I uninstall Chrome the computer returns to normal. How can I fix this issue?

    You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox (you need to close and restart Firefox).

  • Cannot Connect Imac 24" via mini dvi to HDMi adapter cable to Sony Bravia 3

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm having the worst time in trying to connect the following:
    1. Imac 24" 3.06 dual with dvi connection
    2. Mini dvi to HDMI adapter (this mac with this connection was produced only for a short while!).
    3. 10' (foor) HDMI wire
    3. Sony Bravia 32" model KDL32L-5000 with 3 HDML connections
    i.When I wire everything up, I keep getting"no signal" on my Sony Bravia TV.
    ii. It doesn't matter whether I connect the HDMI wire to HDMI 1,2, or 3 on my Sony
    iii. On my Imac Hard Drive>>Applications>>System Preferences>>Displays
    all I get is a list of different resolutions. There is no mention or mirrors etc.
    Nothing happens when I press "Gather Windows" or Detect Displays"
    Can someone out there please help!!!!!
    Can you also give any solution in very simple and small detailed steps!
    Thanks,
    Stacey Bindman

    Majortrout, there is a major disconnect going on here.
    1. You are showing an Ebay link with a mini-DVI to HDMI adapter.
    2. You report that you have an Early '09 24" iMac.
    3. That iMac does not have a mini-DVI port. That iMac has a mini-DispayPort.
    4. You need a mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.
    It is physically impossible to attach the adapter to which you link at Ebay to your iMac. So you need to take a step back and figure out what you really have; which iMac, which adapter, etc.

  • I am trying to connect my Macbook 4.1 Black to my Samsung UE50F6400 using a mini DVI to HDMI adaptor

    I bought the UE50F6400 samrt TV. It has 4 HDMI ports. HDMI 4 is HDMI/DVI, HDMI 3 is normal, HDMI 2 is (ARC) and HDMI 1 is (STB).
    reading the connection diagram it shows Laptops are to be plugged in to HDMI 4 (HDMI/DVI). But when I plug a HDMI cable in and the other end to the adpator while the mini DVI connection is in the Macbook DVI port. All that happens is the Macbook (4.1 black) screen just flashes blue. This is the same for HDMI 1 & 3, however when it is in HDMI 2 (ARC) the Macbook screen displays. I tried switching TV of and rstarting macbook but still no display on TV. I tried changing display setting such as resolutions and refresh rate on the display preferences and still no display on TV.
    Please can someone help?
    I am think I may have to return the Mini DVI to HDMI cable and get a HDMI to DVI > DVI to mini DVI and do it that way, means buying 2 adaptors.

    You have the display set in Extended Desktop mode with the MacBook as the main screen. The Menu Bar and Dock will be on the MacBook display and your background screen on the TV but you can move the cursor onto the TV screen.
    In System Preferences>Display on the MacBook screen there should be an Arrangement tab when you have the MacBook hooked up to the TV and both screens working. When you click the Arrangement tab do you see two monitors side by side? One of them will have a Menu Bar at the top. Just click on the Menu Bar and drag it to the second monitor. That will make the second monitor your main screen.
    The TV will now have the Dock and Menu Bar and windows will open on it. But you can move the cursor to the MacBook screen and move windows from the TV over to the MacBook screen.
    You can now use your MacBook in Clamshell Mode with a wired or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3131 When you disconnect from the TV your Menu Bar will automatically change back to the MacBook.
    Or if you want to work on the MacBook screen while showing it on a TV you can check the Mirror Display box on the lower left hand side of the Arrangement tab under the two monitors box. That will give you the same screen at the same resolution on both the MacBook and the external monitor.

    I am not a computer savy person.  I just need to plug in and have the machine do what it should do.
    Not a problem, but that indicates you have a lot to learn.
    File extensions like mpeg, mp4., avi, wmv, etc. are just wrappers. It is like a box the audio or video content is placed inside. The audio and video content must be encoded with a codec before it is placed in the box. There are thousands of codecs. Not all are installed on your Mac. You must have the same codec installed that encoded the video in order to play it. So, while Quicktime does support mpeg wrapper, it may not have the codecs to decode the internal video.
    Some programs have lots of the codecs available to them, like VLC, Niceplayer, MPlayerX, etc.
    You can also get "plug-ins" for Quicktime that add codecs to Quicktime, like Perian. Although it is no longer being developed, Perian still works well.
    Why is it so difficult? Probably because they are always working on ways to compress the video to get better playback.

    First we need to know which one of the 9 different models of MacBook you have. To see which model you have go to the Apple in the upper left corner and select About This Mac, then click on More Info (and then System Report if you’re running 10.7 Lion). When System Profiler comes up check the Model Identifier and post it back here.
    The Late 2008 model 5,1 Aluminum Unibody and the Late 2009 model 6,1 and Mid 2010 model 7,1 White Unibody have a Mini DisplayPort. The Early 2006 model 1,1 through Early 2008 model 4,1s plus the Early and Mid 2009 model 5,2s have Mini-DVI ports. Each would take a different adapter to connect with the TV.

    All Mac Pro's ever made have shipped with gigabit ethernet.  The last non-gigabit tower desktop Apple made was the very first generation PowerMac G4's back in 1999.
    Similarly, all Time Capsules have been gigabit ethernet as well - never been one that was not.

  • HT5228 How can I tell if my  computer has been infected with the Trojan?

    How can I tell if my computer has been infected with this latest Trojan (or with any Trojan)?  I did install the latest update to Java when I was told by my iMac that new software was available for my computer, which was just 2 or 3 days ago (first week of April).  Now it is being said that there was a Java Trojan.
    Many thanks for any replies!

    Log out and log back in, if you haven’t done so recently. Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the page that opens.
    Step 1
    Copy or drag — do not type — the line below into the Terminal window, then press return:
    launchctl getenv DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
    Post the lines of output, if any, that appear below what you just entered (the text, please, not a screenshot.)
    Step 2
    Repeat with this line (triple-click anywhere in it to select the whole line):
    find /Applications /System/Library/CoreServices -type d -name *.app -exec defaults read {}/Contents/Info LSEnvironment \; 2> /dev/null | grep DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
    The command will take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
    If you get no output from either step, you're not infected with any variant of Flashback that I know of.

  • Using S-Video w/ the Mini DVI to Video Adapter

    I just purchased a MacBook last week and I also purchased a Mini DVI to Video adapter for it so I can use the built-in DVD player to watch movies on my TV. I have a composite to composite cable and that worked fine when I connected the cable between the Mini DVI to Video Adapter and my TV. However, when I tried to use a S-Video cable and connected that between the Mini DVI to Video Adapter and my TV; then I got no picture at all. All I saw on the TV was a picture of the MAC desktop w/o the dock and the movie or nothing else played at all.
    Is the composite connection a better connection for the MAC, or, are there some settings I need to work with on the MAC to get the S-Video connection to work?

    I managed to figure this one out, by fluke. The MacBook has to be powered on and ready for user input prior to connecting the mini DVI to video adapter with the s video already connected to it, and to the TV. Once I did it this way, it worked fine. I just thought I'd share this.

    Yeah, I'm having the same exact problem - It seems that the thunderbolt minidisplay port is only able to output the analog VGA signal, not the digital signal to support DVI and HDMI. This is a bug that came up after installing 10.7.1. I bought my macbook air with 10.7 on it, upgraded it to 10.7.1 as soon as I got it, so I have never been able to use hdmi or dvi with my macbook air. This is an extremely frustrating problem for me, I used HDMI on a daily basis with my PC. I have spent many hours at the genius bar running diagnostic tests so Apple can get as much information as possible to create a fix for this problem. I have been emailing tech support for 3 or so weeks now, they keep saying that they are working on a fix and it should be out soon, but 10.7.2 has come and gone and I still have no HDMI functionality with my MacBook Air!
