Dell supplied their monitor (at least my U2312HM) with DVI Single Link cable. That's the reason why you have incorrect resolution and frame rate. To get higher resolution you need to buy DVI Dual Link cable (with 9 additional pins) to get support higher resolution and frame rate. I sure that Dell made a mistake to supply the monitor with DVI Single Link ...

Found issue to be in the display assembly. I assume something on the control board got shorted or is not functioning properly, causing EFI to not recognize the screen at boot.

Apple, generally does not release drivers other than what ships with OS X. And video card manufacturers generally do not release drivers for their devices installed in a Mac under OS X unless it is a PCI card or some such that has a chipset not specifically supported by OS X. I suppose the Hackintosh community may have some drivers that do that but I would ...

Dragging the status bar (in Display Settings) to the screen you want as default worked for me! :)

You can absolutely use display link drivers. I have an Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB graphics card in my 8gb Mac Book Pro (early 2015) 13 in. It drives 2 24 in Dell displays via with mindvi (normal fps) and four other Dell 24 in monitors using usb 2.0 -->minidvi adapters at 12-15fps. Not great for video or gaming, but just fine for email/documents/command ...

This may not be a full fix. In the Display setting. Click the Arrange Tab. You will see how the Screens are being arranged. There you can adjust the layout. But more importantly you can drag the menu bar icon ( white line at the top of one display) across to the screen you want as primary. I would try that and see if you at least can get starting in at ...

No. Thunderbolt is a protocol for combining PCI express data with DisplayPort video protocols. (i.e. super high speed - low latency protocol for display, networking, data and power transfer) USB is a serial protocol for increased speeds and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 1.1 It doesn't include PCI express or DisplayPort but does have data and ...

It depends which MacBook you have. The cheaper ones only have integrated graphics processor (Intel Iris Graphics 6100) which runs from your CPU. The expensive ones have a separate graphics card (AMD Radeon R9 M370X) with 2Gb memory which supports more display or higher resolution displays. Macbook with integrated Intel graphics: Dual display and video ...

The iPhone warranty in the US doesn't cover physical damage or cosmetic issues. The scratch will likely be judged that way unless it interferes with a function like multi touch. Similarly, the return policy / window might be your best bet - especially if the LCD quality is clearly different than the rest of the display phones. Just because a light scratch ...

If it's just a light scratch and the burn-in was there from day one, then Apple shouldn't have any reason not to exchange it for you.

This trick works (make the external monitor as primary one and partially close the lid till display goes off) http://gizmodo.com/5938452/a-trick-to-make-using-an-external-monitor-with-your-macbook-way-better

The quick answer is that there isn't really much you can do on your end. What can I do? You could take apart the phone and attempt to fix the display manually, but by no means does this guarantee a fix (or even an improvement). By doing this, you would also run the risk of damaging your device further. If Apple replaced your screen when it was broken, ...

The setting you wish to adjust is the built-in display correct? Your screenshot is for the external. To change the built-in display on a retina screen running Yosemite: Unplug your HDMI (as in normal use) Go the the Display preferences ( > System Preferences) Set the display to Scaled and More Space. Play a bit with it to get the look you desire. ...

Bit late to the party, but this is what worked for me. Hope it helps: Download the update from https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1775?locale=en_US Shut down your Mac. Unplug Thunderbolt display. Boot back up, with your Mac lid/screen open (with Thunderbolt display still unplugged). Plug in your Thunderbolt display. Run the update/installer. Installer will ...

As I see the screenshot, the colors on that display are inverted. Try unchecking Settings > Accessibility > Display > Invert colors Also take a look at the Display contrast and the Increase contrast options. Here is a screenshot of the default settings:

It could be dead pixels or it could be the driver 'chips' or a dead 'mux'. The hardware that control what pixels are turned on. Note the color, It looks to me like a group of pixels are 'turned on' when they shouldn't be. It is hard to tell just by looking at a picture. It could be anything in the graphics display hardware. Just let Apple replace it, no one ...

It depends on if the both the digitizer and the display (LCD) are broken or just the display. If it's just the display, then you should be able to interact with the iPhone, even though you won't be able to see it. In other words, treat the iPhone as if it were fully functional and swipe where Slide To Unlock should be and then type in your passcode by ...

I agree that you cannot connect the monitor through the USB port. The mini-displayport is the way to go, imo. Have you considered connecting using HDMI through an HDMI/mini display port adapter? If your monitor has HDMI that's an option, and not too pricey.

What is the docking station? Without knowing, as a guess, I'd say yes, you will have to get video via the mini-DP. USB and Firewire and such are not really designed to carry video signals, and while some USB docks do video, the laptop needs to support this properly - something that my MBP does not do at all. I get the convenience, but the mini-DP is the ...

Changing the resolution will reset the GPU. I recommend the QuickRes app, since you can also set keyboard shortcuts. Read more here http://www.macworld.com/article/2012693/mac-gems-quickres-helps-you-get-the-most-out-of-retina-displays.html

Unless one of the displays is a Thunderbolt display, you cannot connect two displays to a Belkin Thunderbolt Dock (see this question). As neither of your displays is using Thunderbolt, you have two options: Connect one display to the dock and one to the MacBook Pro. One end of the cable (going into the dock or MacBook Pro) could be HDMI or Mini ...
