    Macbook to TV PLEASE HELP!!!!
    I am trying to hook my black macbook up to a 42 inch Vizio that is 1080p.
    I am using a MINI DVI to VGA adapter and a VGA cable.
    I change the input on my TV to PC, but nothing comes up on the TV.
    My mac recognizes the external display, but there's no picture!
    PLEASE HELP ME TROUBLESHOOT THIS!!

    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    Make sure you have the right resolution set on your MacBook, try 1024 x 768 for a start.

    Also have a look at this...

    System Preferences - Displays - adjust the resolution for the external monitor to a resolution it will accept via VGA.
    The resolution buzzard put up for you is a good starting point.

    To find out what resolutions are compatible via VGA, you need to open up the owners manual for the Vizio.
    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.
