I am on a MBP Early 2011, running Snow Leopard and am facing a strange issue. If I boot up my system and try to connect to my external display using the MDP->VGA adapter, System Settings won't show the correct resolution for the secondary display. I can see
1600x1200, and even if I hit
Detect Displays, nothing will change.
What is my workaround? Connect using MDP->DVI adapter, which will identify the correct resolution of the display (
1680x1050), and then fall back to the VGA Adapter to surprisingly see the native resolution of my display listed!!
Do you guys know what is going on here? Thank you in advance.
