Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
Please help me. Bought the new monitor from bestbuy yesterday- I brought back adapters they said I needed to hook up with, today. I can hook up each to the other through the DVI IN port but nothing but check analog settings shows up on my samsung monitor. he driver-CD that came with the monitor is for PC only. I cannot get a driver online for this monitor. So....is this Monitor only for PC or will it adapt to my macbookpro? Love the monitor...hate to bring it back but useless to me right now. Thanks anyone out there... Ladyjane from Ladyjanes posin parlor-Superior Wisconsin firstname.lastname@example.org
I think you're using the adapter in reverse. The adapter that changes from VGA to DVI but not the other way. You should plug the adapter into the DVI out on the macbook and then plug the VGA end of the cable into the monitor. If the monitor has a DVI input then you should be using a DVI to DVI cable to hook it up.
Once you have the cable plugged in you'll need to enable dual monitors or switch to external monitor on your macbook. Don't worry about the driver's cd, they are not necessary to make the monitor work on your mac (or on a PC for that matter).
There are two great instructions on how to do this, just google for "macbook switch to external monitor"
Second one here.
