You can only connect two or more displays to your mac when it is a thunderbolt display. When you have an thunderbolt display and a non-thunderbolt display, your mac will automatically start working with the thunderbolt display until you unplug it.

Great post, it really worked and I'd buy you a beer for saving me from reinstalling Yosemite. Now I don't have to hear my wife complains about "System Disk Space is full". Took me a few days to find this answer but I'm glad I did. A few extra tips: While you are in "Recovery Mode" - also do a Repair Disk on the main OSX partition. I had a couple small ...

Using UltraMon seems to work fine for me, I've found it in a post on the Parallels Forum: I will start the VM with 3 screens, then I use a 3rd party software (UltraMon) and disable the one display so that my VM uses two screens running Windows 7 and my MacOS uses the one.

Realistically most Mavericks-capable systems with built-in displays, other than the early aluminum iMacs and Santa Rosa Core 2 MacBooks, have LED back-lighting which isn't going to noticeably dim with age or be affected by on/off cycling. If you're driving a CRT/plasma/CCFL-LCD monitor then you have option of increasing the lifespan of the display phosphor ...

I think of it as the "lawyer's light bulb", or the equivalent of "objects in this mirror may be closer than they appear" [which I actually thought was a joke when I saw it for the first time] Leaving a light bulb on 24/7 will shorten its life, as it won't last as many years compared to if you just used it an hour a day. This is, however, a 'fake' analogy, ...

Your system supports following resolutions: You can use 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs at the following resolutions and refresh rates via the built-in HDMI port. 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz refresh rate 4096 x 2160 at 24 Hz refresh rate (mirroring is not supported at this resolution)- MBP 2013 and up. Thus no 60Hz is possible.

You can use a USB Display Adapter. One like this could work. Some display adapters only support digital formats (HDMI, DVI-D...) so if your projector only supports analog signals (i.e. VGA) then make sure the adapter you get supports it. One limitation of USB display adapters is their limited bandwidth, and therefore limited resolution. For a ...

This is more of a comment adding data, but I'm not yet permitted to comment, so this will have to do: I'm seeing this several times a day since getting my imac back from the shop with a new hard disk and Lion install, followed by a time machine restore. I also upgraded the machine to 32G of ram after it came back. When it occurs, the kernel_task in top ...

It's because the sleeve has a "Magnetic snap closure with no zippers" which actually mimics the magnetic latch that's triggered while the lid of the MacBook is closed which turns off the screen. I've noticed this happen to me a few times in different situations when I would put my iPhone on the hand rest part of the MacBook or If i left my Adonit Jot ...

Let me summarize the troubleshooting steps. Before disassembling: 1- Run the Apple Hardware test to see if it comes up with anything. 2- As far I know you have a NVIDIA graphics car. Run without it to test. 3- Connect a external monitor to test if the internal display is failing. 4- Open up the computer and unplug/plug the Video cable few times to clean ...

Just wanted to add, don't forget that you have warranty on your device... If it is a retina display MBP I'm guessing it's not overly old, so may still be within the limited warranty period (even if it's not in warranty it's likely Apple will still help you) — especially seeing as you said that there is no accidental damage also (and yes, I do work for ...

There is a small possibility that the video cable is mis-seated and simply unplugging it and re-plugging it in might help. ifixit.com can help you with the take-apart. It is not difficult, just make sure you ground yourself and disconnect the battery before touching anything. Has the machine been dropped? Has anything been spilled on it? Is the LCD panel ...
