I was using M1 Apple Macbook Pro but had to sell it for some reason but now I am back on my Macbook Pro 2012. I tried using the display port to HDMI on SAMSUNG - Odyssey G95 but my MacBook seems to freeze and when I take the cable off the MacBook it is working. But the monitor doesn't even display.

Why is it happening

  • Does the Samsung Odessey G95 have display ports? – Melvin Jefferson Mar 19 at 3:33

Older Macs will often require two cables and Picture-by-Picture mode for it to work. On a newer mac, Thunderbolt ports can handle the connection.

Try to use two DisplayPort cables to accomplish this, not HDMI of any sort.

    The MacBook 2012 doesn’t have DisplayPort. It the following connector and expansion slot FireWire 800 port (up to 800 Mbps) Two USB 3 ports (up to 5 Gbps) Thunderbolt port (up to 10 Gbps) Do I need to buy converter? – localhost Mar 20 at 12:04

  • Yes you'll need a thunderbolt to HDMI cable or Display port adapter. – Melvin Jefferson Mar 25 at 4:13
