Greetings,

I'm a relatively new convert to Mac's, so please forgive my ignorance.

Last night (slightly inebriated), I hooked up my Macbook to my plasma tv using a converter from the port to a vga cable into the tv. I can't remember what I pressed (beers didn't help), but I think I went along the old PC line of fn F4 and it switched over. Now, the next day, when I plug it in again, it says no cable in (on the tv) and no matter what I press, I can't get it to come up again.

if anyone has any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Mike

You might start here with post 2.

Connecting your Mac to your TV

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Hi Bob,

I looked at the link your provided, and I didn't find the answer.

Would letting my Macbook update its software have any effect? (I did this last night before sleeping.) Because when I plugged it in yesterday, it recognised the laptop immediately, and changing the tv screen to a mirror was done by the Apple button and one of the screen brightness buttons (I think).

Any further help would be great.

Cheers

Mike
