How to get VGA display to work


Recommended Posts

How to get your VGA display to work:

1. When you're booted up, goto System Preferences -> Displays

2. Make sure TV is on and plug in VGA cable and wait for laptop screen to refresh

3. Hit the Detect Displays button and wait a few seconds

4. if nothing happens the 1st time, unplug cable, wait for refresh and try a 2nd time hitting the Detect button again

5. it should get it the 2nd time!



after the TV display comes on you can then goto the arrangement tab and move the top bar over to the TV Display screen and do full screen apps (Lion) from there. . .

Hey, is there a way to turn off the internal display? Some exotic terminal command?

I would like to work with display@VGA-port only, because the NVS135 comes only with 128MB and graphics are slow, when using both (intern+extern) displays.


(The D630+usb-keyboard+display+closed lid - wont wake up like my old MacBook)
