ENDS UP - the answer is to change the name of the HDMI input through the display's menu (the samsung menu from the external) to PC or DVI PC. Answer from here: http://superuser.com/questions/146841/why-does-text-look-so-horrible-on-my-hd-monitor. Apparently I was searching on the wrong stackexchange.

This is a combination of a few of the other posts/comments here into one place. I'm using a MacBook Pro running El Capitan. Advantages of this method over the terminal commands: no restart required no modification of boot-args Steps: plug in and turn on external monitor go to System Preferences -> Displays -> Arrangement uncheck "mirror displays" ...

My question was marked as a duplicate of this one but has a solution to this issue verified by many users. rMBP kernel_task spikes when connecting more than one external monitor :)

It sounds like there is some problem with the connecting wires for the display. If you're okay how things are, then you can just leave things be. A repair would probably cost several hundred dollars. I have the same model Mac and also have display issues. When it was almost one year old, I noticed that the display would often go wonky (not turn off but look ...

The way you connect more than 2 external displays to a MacBook (or any laptop for that matter) is to use USB display adapters like the StarTech USB 3.0 to 4K DisplayPort External Multi Monitor Video Graphics Adapter Each one of these adapters will function like a separate graphics card allowing you to hook up as many monitors as you have adapters. So, to ...

Yes, every model of the iPad mini 2 has a retina display. Those who call it the "iPad mini 2" are likely just using a shortened form of the name for convenience. Source: apple.com

You most likely caused damage to your MacBook Pro's screen, video cable, and or keyboard cable. I did a bit of research and found a very similar condition to the picture you provided (see below). This was posted on the iFixit forum. The resolution to this problem was a warranty replacement. Being that your MacBook Pro is 6 to 7 years old, this will be ...

You could connect multiple displays or other thunderbolt devices, via the thunderbolt connection. Take a look at DisplayPort daisy chaining, available from v1.2

You can also fix the dock on a other screen: Go to System Preferences Click on Displays Click on Arrangement Swipe the white bar from one screen to the other If this won't work, also check the alt + cmd + d keycombination to show / hide the dock.

In case anyone comes across this question - here's what I made out of it. Given that the graphics card might get to its limits with 4k anyway, I chose to give the Eizo 3237 a try with the 4k resolution at 140 DPI. Running on native resolution is small but crisp, as expected. Using HiDPI modes and scaling up works really nice as long as you don't hit your ...

Its possible with screenresx and this stuff. Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to HDMI 2.0a Active Adapter 4K@60Hz I have a MBP, early 2013, and it's working with 60Hz + 4k. There are many adapters out there, but be sure is 4k + 60hz active, otherwise will not work.

This appears to have been fixed in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, as the banner can be accepted using ↩. Furthermore, the window appears fully on-screen in my scenario, rendering the need for a keyboard-only approach unnecessary for my use case. So as far as I can tell, it is impossible to accept the policy banner without using the mouse in OS X 10.10 ...

I believe the problem is your HDMI cable - it's not capable of displaying 2560x1080. In other words, it's pre HDMI spec 1.4. (Also, the link provided to the cable in the original question is out of date; it's no longer available). Per Apple Support, the 2013 MacBook Air (11" and 13" model) has a Thunderbolt port which also supports mini Display Port ...

My 2 screens have been doing this more lately as well. I'm still running 10.10.5. I don't think it's one screen or another, though I'm wondering if it's the cables. They are getting over 3+ years old now. I'm going to try a total rebuild this week of my laptop to see if it's a weird driver issue (and update to El Capitan as well)

Unfortunately, OS X does not support multiple docks running on multiple monitors simultaneously. According to Apple's support article: When the Dock is configured to appear at the bottom of your screen, it's available on whichever screen you’re working on. Just move your pointer to the bottom of either display. When the Dock is configured for the left ...

Upgrading Graphics Card didn't work for me, I have an Early 2009 Mac Pro running the latest version of El Capitan and the only monitor that will work for me is my 2004 Apple Cinema Display that uses DVI or screw in cable (not mini DisplayPort) For some reason My 24" Apple LED Cinema Display will not stay on. It goes black but if I shine a light into the ...

I ran into the same problem when I bought a Dell UltraSharp Monitor to use with a MacBook Pro. It appears you may be using an older spec mDP to HDMI cable (Probably HDMI 1.2) Version 1.2 HDMI 1.2 was released August 8, 2005 and added the option of One Bit Audio, used on Super Audio CDs, at up to 8 channels. It also added the availability of HDMI ...

I don't know which product you have, but I own an Insignia HDMI to VGA adapter. There's a micro-USB port on the adapter which I need to plug into a power source, and it then works. I just plug it into my computer for the power and have a USB hub on the other side for my USB needs.
