I just bought a new unibody white MP today and the mini dvi connector for it. Every time I plug in my monitor to the laptop it locks up and has to be hard reset to come back on. If I have it plugged in while it's booting up it never boots up all the way.

Make sure you're using the correct connector and adapter to the external monitor and the proper input on the monitor. If you're sure everything is OK and correct, take your MBP back to where you purchased it from and have them check it out. Bring the external monitor along (if possible).

Regards.
