MacBook Pro to a Samsung 931BF 19" Monitor

Monitor does not detect digital signal with mini-DVI adapter connected to DVI cable. DVI cable and monitor connected to another computer, without mini-DVI adapter, works fine. What alternatives do I have to connect this monitor to my MacBook if the adapter is rendering the connection to the monitor useless?

    I'm having the same problem with a Samsung monitor and my mum's Mac Mini. I spoke to Samsung's very good support team and was told that I must use a DVI-D plug, not just DVI. Could this be the answer? I won't know till I've gone to the shops to make sure that's what I've got, but is the Apple mini-DVI to DVI adaptor going to work for me?

  • I'm having the exact same problem. I'm using a Samsung SyncMaster 2333 and it won't pick up the signal from my MacBook. I've tried two different connectors from the MB to the monitor, and still no luck. I went to a local electronics store to find out more info about the problem, and the sales rep hooked up a MB to a similar Samsung monitor (SyncMaster 2433), and everything worked fine. I going to go to the apple store first thing tomorrow to see if there's a problem with the port, or what they can do to help my situation.
