    Hi everyone,

    I have got my new uMBP i7. It is gorgeous, super happy with it :). Because I need to run several programs under Windows XP, I have installed Windows XP under Bootcamp. I used Winclone to migrate bootcamp partition from my old MBP to the i7.

    My problem is that when I linked my external monitor (20 inch ViewSonic) to uMBP using the Minidisplay-to-DIV adaptor from Apple, there is no display on my external monitor. I can set the external monitor as extension of main monitor under "Setting", but after the windows Ding/Done sound, there is nothing on my external monitor. Does anyone have experiences about fixing this problem?

    The external monitor works in the Mac OS.

    Thanks for any help.

    I have the exact same problem. The option to make the external monitor the primary display is disabled. Think this is a video card thing?

    I know this is a super old thread, but this problem really needs to be resolved, it is such a pain! I deal with it all the time.
