    Mini display port to dvi > dvi to vga adapter > vga to vga display cord > monitor
    I have this cable setup : Mini display port to dvi > dvi to vga adapter > vga to vga display cord > monitor

    My macbook can display settings of each monitor I try to connect my macbook to, but it won't display. I try to use mirroring but that won't work either. Help? On the monitor it will just show as no vga detected, but my macbook can read the settings to each monitor.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    That adapter/cabling setup will not work.

    The mini displayport to DVI adapter only outputs a digital signal - no analog signal, so there is no signal being sent to your TV.

    See the following thread - Item #1 in post # 5 if you want to use VGA.

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
