    I am new to Mac computers, having just purchased one last week. Today, I hooked my macbook air 11 up to my BenQ monitor with a SVGA->Mini Display Port adapter. Unfortunately, for some reason, the monitor flickers, going black for 5-10 seconds at times, if I do not use the mirror arrangement and also, if I set the resolution above 1440x900 (it supports up 1920 x1080 - which is what I use when its hooked up to my HP).

    Anyidea what the problem is?

    Ah, turns out it was a faulty adapter. Please ignore, not Mac Air's fault
