It is a fault with your CPU's Ram module(90%). Rest goes to motherboard/Graphics card.

SOURCE: error message on Syncmaster- check signal cable

sounds like it might be a graphics card. if u have an old graphics or vidio card, open the case and remove your card then install the old one. if it works now youll know your card is bad. If u have an old video card and an open pci slot install it and move the monitor cable to the old video card plugin. if it works now same thing your graphics card is bad. to know which card to remove just remember which one the monitor is plugged into.

VGA Will not connect

Have you checked if the SyncMaster is compatible with a Mac? I do not use Macs, so I do not know. In the old times you had to buy everything Apple. You could try looking for an adapter to convert VGA or Digital to Mac Video.

A green hue from my samsung syncmaster 720n

Check the video cable connection at both ends. If it is secure, then move the cable in circles at both ends.
If the cable breaks a single wire, it will still be close enough to make contact under this test.
The red is almost always the one that will break first and cause the green and blue signals to be the only ones to be active resulting in a blue/green tint.
If you have another cable just try that instead.
