Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook

Open Question

I connected my macbook pro os 10.5 to a dell 2400mp projector when both machines were off. I turned on the projector then booted the mac. The projector projected what should have been my mac screen, but the mac screen was solid blue with nothing on it.

SOURCE: mac driver need for dell projector

You shouldn't need a driver as long as the Mac video system resolution can be matched by the Dell projector. Considering you are using a Mac Pro I don't think this will be an issue. Have you tried it and it didn't work?

SOURCE: Dell projector, Mac book Pro display problem

Hi smithmollie,

There should be a "displays" icon 67f8081.png in the top right portion of the menu bar where you can change the display mode to "Mirror Display" whenever you connect the projector.

If it's not there go to "System Preferences" > "Displays" > "Display" tab and put a checkmark next to "Show displays in menu bar".

Also you can go to "System Preferences" > "Displays" and leave it open while connecting the projector and change the settings to "Mirror Display" there.

Best regards,

Thomas

I have a question regarding the distance I can achieve with the Dell


The Dell 2400MP Projector is rated for 1-2 to 12 meters, or 3.9 feet to 39 feet.
However, the farther the distance to the screen, the dimmer the image will be.
A great resource for Dell Projectors is this link: http://www.projectorcentral.com/Dell-2400MP-projection-calculator-pro.htm

It leads to a little flash tool that allows you to use sliders to adjust throwing distance and then tells you how much light you can expect the wall. It also gives you a ton of other useful information about the projector.

hope this answers your question

How do you turn off DOS mode on a 13" MacBook Pro?


Is this a trick question? There is no "DOS mode" on a MacBook Pro.
Do you have WIndows installed as part of Boot Camp, and your machine is booting into Windows? To boot back into the Mac, either use the Boot Camp control panel in Windows, or hold down the Option key after you hear the startup chime and select the OS X partition to boot from.

Macbook recognizes dell projector, but not vice versa


Hello,
Your Macbook should automaticaly find the best resolution, if everything was OK. Is there any HDMI input on the dell projector? What projector is it? Is there is an HDMI input, you can use a HDMI to mini DVI cable: better picture and sound than VGA, and will probably solve your problem
