That's not really what you wanted, but have you tried this arrangement?

Check out this Apple Support article about startup tones. I know you're not getting the beeps on startup but a hardware beep indicates a hardware issue. Startup tones are not necessarily only heard at startup. Apple Support article: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202768 Issue: Sounds like you're getting the 3 successive tones with a 5 second delay. ...

I also found this 'feature' annoying as you expect the Dock to be on one screen then you accidentally move the mouse to the bottom of the second screen and the Dock moves across. The easiest way to get it back is to move the mouse to the bottom of the screen you want the dock on. Sometimes you have to move it up then back down to get it to move. Personally ...

I answered a similar question here. You can summon the Dock on a different display by dragging the cursor to the bottom of it's display, and then continuing the dragging down motion for a second or so. Is it possible that this is occurring when you inadvertently perform that action?

EDIT:Make sure that you save everything you want before doing this Try changing the hibernate mode to RAM only, run this Terminal command: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 And, try deleting the sleepimage. From /private/var/vm/sleepimage. Do: sudo rm /private/var/vm/sleepimage Then type your password.

Also in the category of "expensive solutions" falls this: Your MacBook Pro 2012 can drive two Thunderbolt Displays. You can buy the displays at Apple's store. The information on how many Thunderbolt displays are supported on any given Mac can be found in the Thunderbolt FAQ.

No, that 3-in-1 adapter will not drive multiple monitors. What you need is either a system that combines 2 monitors, or a system that chains them. While DisplayPort allows for daisy-chaining displays, this only works on supported hardware. This means your monitors need to both have two DisplayPort connectors and official support from the vendor and inside ...

Apparently older Macs don't support audio through HDMI. Audio needs to be transmitted separately through the jack connection on your Mac, just as if attaching speakers. Then depending on your TV could be jack or RCA.

I had the exact same problem with a Dell monitor. After months of support calls and monitor replacements, it ended up being the cable. The problem was using a Mini-DP to DP cable. For some reason, the DP chips in the cable is not sending a signal that Dell monitors are expecting or the length of the cable causes the signal to degrade. The fix? Buy a ...

I think the Caldigit Thunderbolt station is your best option. It has one Thunderbolt out and one HDMI out, that can be driven from 1 Thunderbolt connection on your MacBook. http://www.caldigit.com/thunderboltstation/

Depending on your version of Mac O/S there should be controls in "Displays" that allow you to rotate the display. On the Snow Leopard mac I have at work there is a menu to the right that says "Rotation:" and a menu with Standard, 90, 180 and 270 degree selections available in it. I seem to recall it looks a little different in newer versions of Mac O/S

The Elgato only supports two devices (one in HDMI, second in Thunderbolt socket) if the second is a Thunderbolt monitor (i.e. a not displayport monitor)

So I figured this out, kind of. I cloned and built https://github.com/CdLbB/fb-rotate, and flipped the external monitor around a couple times with it. Suddenly everything works, even after a reboot. The only thing I can think of is that a config file somewhere got corrupted, and this utility rewrote it and fixed it. Either way, it works now!

I am trying to run 4 monitors to my MBP Mid 2014. Is the answer to this question accurate? How exactly can this be made to work?

I feel your pain as I had an almost identical issue. It went on for ever, no one knew how to fix it. I tried re-wiring the order of displays and just about everything I could think of. I'm now running on Yosemite.. Shortly after upgrading apple released a firmware update (I believe Dec 19th or so) for the ThunderBolt displays. Yosemite, along with that ...

You could use a Thunderbolt to HDMI then a HDMI splitter and I know there's a program to make your MacBook think you are using one big display.

Reboot the Mac with the monitor cable connected. That sometimes fixes it.

Switched from DVI cable to VGA, works now. Weird.

http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/digital_me/ Something like this should work. Seeing how thunderbolt can support display port connections this would allow you to use multiple monitors while only using one port.

I have the same machine and the fans do run when trying to display 4k... it's a pain but it appears that whenever the dedicated graphics card comes online it immediately tries to cool the machine... I'm also running OSX Yosemite if that helps.

If you look in the Console log you will find that the WindowServer is having a hard time finding the right protocol for your monitor. Usually that happens when the hardware (cable/converter) connection are not stable, to long or near interference source. From your picture it does look like your cable is to long and to close to the external monitor screen, ...

According to Everymac This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560x1600 via Thunderbolt and a single 1080p display at up to 60 Hz, 3840x2160 at 30 Hz, or 4096x2160 at 24 Hz via HDMI. …so I'd say 'yes'.

HDMI did not work for me but the Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI converter cable adapter worked perfectly! with a HP Pavilion 25bw

A couple of options for you... You could use an Apple TV connected to your monitor and connect to your Mini using AirPlay - since 10.9 you're no longer restricted to using AirPlay to just mirror your main display, you can use an AirPlay-connected display as a secondary display. Otherwise you're looking at a hard-wired display setup. Hard-wiring may be ...

@jorgen.ringen, I am facing the same issue with a 13" 3Ghz Macbook Pro 11,1 (mid-2014). The reviewer in 9to5mac from the link you posted states that the HDMI input ports will only do 4k at 30hz, so the only solution (as he also states) is to purchase a miniDisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 adapter or cable. I went for the cable and am currently awaiting its ...

2007 had 2 iMac models. The white Intel iMac and then the start of the Aluminum models. Based on the info and pictures above, you have the Aluminum Core2Duo model, which should be able to handle up to 1920x1200 digital external display in extended desktop mode so it isn't a limitation of the iMac video RAM. In the list above, when in extended desktop ...

Sparky's suggestion #2, swapping the ports that the displays connect to, resolved this problem for me. I'm using a 2013 Mac Pro 6,1 with two displays plugged into the bottom pair of Thunderbolt ports that share the same bus. No matter what else I change the monitor that's plugged into the port on the right – nearest the power button – becomes the primary ...

You are unlikely to be able use the VGA input to go above 1080p But just to make sure follow this answer how to view more Resolutions to try with.

You can use Insomniax to disable sleep when the display is closed. This will mean that you can close the lid and display the screen on a secondary monitor mode without needing to have a power adapter connected as the Mac will not sleep when you close the lid.

I suppose you could put together a script which runs a diskutil eject command on the specific volume, then schedule it to run at 4:30 PM each day via cronx or another scheduling app. When you go to leave at 5:00 PM, the disk has already been ejected. The drive will always be something like /dev/disk2, so the script only needs to eject the specific volume ...

According to Rhys Oxenhams: the kernel will keep looping some very simple tasks, e.g. getting the date, therefore ‘consuming’ (with the highest priority) the majority of the CPU in a bid to cool the system down. The solution he mentions on his blog should work for earlier Macs. For Ivy-Bridge Macs and a little earlier Richard Schwarting has found ...

I haven't had any issues using third party adapters but it looks like your adapter isn't compatible. You can buy the official apple one on apples website.

While this might not provide a direct answer to your question, I would be interested in the EDID (Extended display identification data) of that display. Run ioreg -l | grep EDID on terminal to get all the EDIDs listed. Your output then includes one line for each display connected, such as "IODisplayEDID" =<00ffffffffffff000...>. Take the part in ...

Do you get different options if you drop the refresh rate down to 30 or lower? I'm guessing you don't get the same options simply because it isn't a retina screen; instead you get the resolutions your card/display can negotiate between them. From Everymac This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via ...

It looks like timing issue between monitor and your Macbook. You might try different cable or just turning monitor off and on with a button (much better than wearing off HDMI socket btw)
