Question about Hannspree 22" widescreen LCD Flat Panel HD Monitor

2 Answers

Compatible with Mac?

Just bought the Hannspree HF229H monitor at Best Buy to use with my Mac PowerBook G4. I also bought a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter. Plugs in fine but the install software CD is not working. Can I get installation software to make this monitor work with my Mac or do I need a different monitor?
Thank you!

Need to connect hp pavilion vf15 monitor to mac computer

First of all, before you look which one to buy, you need to find out which Video Port does you Mac has, i.e. VGA or DVI or Mini DVI or HDMI. Once it's confirmed, you have to find out the same with your monitor, so that you can buy the appropriate cable.

Pictures Below:
1. VGA

2. DVI

3. Mini DVI


Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i connect the lcd to my computer

The monitor appears to be DVI capable, (White connector with a grid pattern). You will need to connect the monitor to the computer using a DVI cable (White connector with grid pattern and plus sign shape on one side). If your computer is not capable of connecting to a DVI monitor check to see if the monitor has a Blue VGA (Blue Zig Zag Openings) and connect it with a VGA cable. If your monitor only has the white DVI connector and your computer only has a Blue VGA connector you will need to go to the store (Best Buy, Walmart, Etc) to buy a small adapter that will convert DVI to VGA. If you ask someone for a DVI to VGA adapter they will know what you are talking about. I hope this helps.

How do i get my macbook pro to work with the monitor gateway VX720

You'll need a mini DVI to VGA adapter. The adapter I currently use was purchased at Best Buy for under $20. You might also try Ebay. I definitely recommend this as it is an invaluable addition to your MacBook Pro.

My apple mini mac (no intel) hook up mag monitor 780

The Mac Mini has an adapter plug, DVI to VGA.
If you use the adapter and a VGA cable to the monitor there is not a noticeable difference.

Just be sure to know the resolution maximums of the MAG monitor before you think its the Mac.

Can a macbook pro work with a hannspree 28" LCD monitor?

I cant see why not, On you TV you have incomming port called HDMI, on your mac you have an outgoing port called MiniDislay for DVI.
You can use that port whit an adapter to make it to a real DVI, the you need another adapter to reform the DVI to HDMI. It can be done, its a little bit tricky, but it can be done.

here is the spec on your mac

And here are the spec for yor tv

Good luck to you

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro

Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.
