    Hey all, tried hooking my MBP up to my external display with the mini display port dvi adapter and the screen on the MacBook Pro just flashes blue when I turn it on. This is the same DVI cable that I use with my desktop computer that works fine... Any ideas?

    If you haven't already tried this, try turning off your MacBook Pro and then connecting the cable to the MBP and then to the monitor. Then turn on the monitor and then turn on the MBP. Hopefully it'll detect the monitor and work correctly.
