Hello guys, basically I am trying to connect a 2006 white macbook to my external monitor.
I bought to cables, a miniDVI to HDMI and miniDVI to DVI and both yield the exact same results when trying to connect to 2 different LCD monitors.
The pictures show the result:
The yellow/green screen changes based off the resolution.
Why is this happening? Is this a problem with my mac?
I should also note I am not using offical apple adapters, but knockoffs from Amazon - these were given good reivews so I dont see why it won't work.
Is this a problem with my Mac or my cables or the reason I am not using an OfficeMax apple adapter?
Cables I bought:
Amazon.com: PTC Mini-DVI to HDMI Adapter with 6ft HDMI Cable for Macintosh: Electronics
Amazon.com: Connectland CL-ADA31020 Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter: Electronics
