    Hey folks,

    I just bought some Mac accessoires including an Apple Mini Display Port --> VGA. I have an 1920x1200 iiyama screen PLE2607WSV

    However, my MacBook doesn't recognize my external display resolution. It thinks the maximum is 1920x1080.

    Please, how can I fix it and get my maximum 1920x1200 resolution. I looked up and it should be supported?

    Otherwise: isn't there a workaround (or hack or something?)

    Thanks guys! :)

    Stefan

    It didn't work for me. What if I buy an Mini Display to DVI and an VGA --> DVI converter, will that work? Or are there more solutions?

    does the monitor support HDMI?

    will HDMI go to 1920x1200?
