VG910s not recognizing DVI input

Hi I have a ViewSonic VG 910s, which I was using connected to a Macbook Pro via DVI. A week ago, a connected them (as usual) an the monitor didn?t respond. It is just black, and if I turn it off and on the ?no signal? sign appears. The monitor is working nicely via the VGA input (which BTW connects to the DVI adaptor of the MAC) with no problem. Any ideas on which could be the problem with the DVI? Thanks

The VGA section of the Monitor is totally separate circuit than that used by the DVI circuit. Either or will do an automatic switch to what ever circuit communicates via the proper attachment (VG or DVI cable). AS long as the VGA Drivers are up-to-date the operating system should recognize the Video signal. Check the DEVICES and look for Video. Your Monitor should show up if the connection is proper, and if not there, you may have a bad Video Cord.

Macbook recognizes dell projector, but not vice versa

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

Yamaha reciever doesnt recognise hdmi from Mac laptop

Max does recognize receiver over HDMI-CEC.
The problem is that DVI output is for video only. Macbook won't (and can't) output audio via DVI. So yamaha receives only video signal via the HDMI connector. You can check that by pressing Option button on yamaha remote and choosing Signal Info - you will see info about video, but no audio signal present.

Macbook pro + IBM m4000

Depends on the connections you have on both. Most MacBook Pros have a DVI connector on the side. If the IBM projector takes that sort of input, then all you need is that cable.
If the IBM projector has a VGA input, then you'll need an adaptor from DVI to VGA.
(VGA input is standard monitor looking connector.)

DVI connection fault

I had the same problem, you must call Viewsonic to change your screen. The DVI input on the screen is dead.
