    Hey Guys,

    I have some troubles calibrating my monitor.
    I just bought a new macbook pro 2.4GHZ. The external display that I use is a Samsung SyncMaster 226cw.

    I have both display on their highest resolution. On my macbook pro everything is cristal clear. On my external monitor everything seems blurred. It's just unsharp. Especially letters look unsharp. I tried to calibrate my monitor but it doesn't seem tot work.

    I don't understand this problem because my 4 year old laptop PC worked perfectly with this monitor.

    Thank you in advance

    Are you using the DVI or VGA connection? Does switching to the 9600 on the MBP make any difference?

    I use a DVI connection.

    I haven't tried switching yet

    If you are using both the display at the same time, the ext. monitor with drop to 1440x900 because you can only use the highest resolution of the smallest monitor.
