Hi there, I have a Macbook Pro 17", my screen stopped working fully but the laptop still turns on. I have a DVI (not mini) to HDMI Cable. I was wondering how I can connect it to my HDTV and use it as a monitor? I tried to plug it in, but no signal. So I'm assuming its not plug and play...? Is there any other way? BTW my laptop is model A1229 Macbook Pro 17". Any help please?????
