How to display 2560x1440 using MacBook Air (2011)
I just bought this Auria 27" LED IPS monitor at: http://www.microcenter.com/product/3...PS_LED_Monitor
Background that you can skip:
I went for this over the $300 monitors on Ebay b/c
1) it's Local with a 100% refund within 30 days, very generous and no risk
2) it has a full complement of ports: dvi, dp, hdmi, vga.
3) this full set of ports would put the cost at at least $400 even on ebay.
It has the same panel as the $999 Thunderbolt monitor (that's the consensus).
Of course, now being the cheap little monitor that it is, it won't display anything past 1920x1080.
Macbook air 2011, running mountain lion.
I have tried connecting with DVI, HDMI, Displayport.
I'm using a mini-displayport adapter from monoprice hooked up to my MBA.
This should work, but it doesn't. Can someone please tell me how to do this?
When I plug my mini displayport into the displayport input of the Auria, I get "NO Signal" on the monitor and that's it. It's not even detecting my displayport?
I should not need a dual link DVI to get this to work right?
I also have a 2009 17" macbook pro with an NVIDIA graphics card and that, too does not work over displayport.
