New to the forums as most of you can probably tell. Anyways im not sure if this question or problem is been asked or solved on this forum but ill see what you guys got! I have an Early 2011 13" MacBook Pro. I recently ordered a minidisplay port to HDMI adapter off of amazon. I finally got it but most of you can guess what happend when I connected it to an external display. Yep, nothing. I tried numerous times clicking "Detect Display" but it just froze for 3 seconds and nothing happend. My current setup is the Thunderbolt port to hdmi, then hdmi to VGA. I also have OS X Lion 10.7.4. I have tried everything including gfxCardStatus and using every setting, turning the brightness all the way down. Putting the mac to sleep and closing it and waking it up with an external mouse. I have an appointment with an Apple Store this tuesday but im not sure if they can do anything. Any help would be great! If you need anymore info let me know! Thanks!
