What type of input are you using? Your macbook should auto detect it. If you go into system preferences, displays, you may just have it at the wrong resolution.

Hello and thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.


I recommend you boot your Mac into Safe Mode, to see if you can remove a possible folder(s) which may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

Try these steps:

-SAFE BOOT MODE-
• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while

(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain start up items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder

• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, please feel free to reply back to this post.


Regards,

Mactechtrainer

Mac book pro. Black screen cannot start but with boot sound


Have you tried connecting an external monitor.

A boot chime means the Mac has passed POST, that the screen remains black initially suggests there is a problem getting image to screen which could mean a bad cable to the LCD or the LCD display its self is having problems.

By connecting to an external display you verify the graphics on the logic board is functional, and it could get you up and running till the display problem is fixed.

Also try powering up and when you hear the chime, hold down the COMMAND+OPTION+P+R keys, and keep holding them till the machine has chimed 3 times, this will reset the 'BIOS' in case there is a glitch there stopping the display from showing up.

I am trying to connect my macbook to a sharp LCD


Are you tyring to play something off your laptop onto your TV? If yes then what you can see right now( Bigger picture of your laptop) that is correct. For no sounds try plugging in the speakers into the laptop headphone jack directly and then see it that works. If it does then the dvi-hdmi conenctor might have gone bad and needs to be replaced.

If you have other queires please reply back to this thread.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

Nothing shows up but audio works


Most likely your Logic Board needs to be replaced. There is a quality program for Nvidia video Chip issue that Apple is honoring free of charge. Please take it to Apple Authorized place and see if your computer qualifies for that.

Connecting laptop to lcd


You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

How can i watch a dvd from my mac book pro through an hd tv ,


Open up System Preferences in the Apple menu, then go to "Display".

Make sure the monitor is connected, and click the "arrangement" tab. Check "mirror displays" OR drag the menu bar (white bar at the top of one of the monitor representations) from your laptop screen image to the desktop screen image.
