    I got my MDP-DVI cord today and tried it out. It works fine. I noticed when I had my Mid-2010 13" MBP connected to the external monitor that instead of a spinning beachball, it was the spinning gear that was showing up.

    When I say spinning gear, its the spinning thing that is below the apple logo at startup.

    Now that I have disconnected from the external monitor, my cursor will still turn into the spinning gear instead of the beachball.

    Does anyone know why this has happened?

    THANK YOU!!! When I was playing around in Photoshop is when I first noticed it. I'm relieved not...I thought something went wrong with my laptop.
