Connect your mini DisplayPort equipped MacBook®, laptop, or PC to an HDMI® display using this Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter from Monoprice.
This is a passive adapter, which requires no additional power. It converts the mini DisplayPort signal to an HDMI audio/video signal. The adapter supports resolutions up to 1920x1080p and up to 36-bit Deep Color (12-bits per channel). Note that this is not bidirectional and therefore will NOT convert HDMI video to mini DisplayPort.
Note: This is a passive adapter and is therefore NOT suitable for AMD® Eyefinity installations. An active adapter, such as PID 5135, is required for Eyefinity setups.

Try the following:
1.) Go into the System Settings
2.) Go into the Display Settings
3.) On one of the Tabs in the Display Settings Window there will be a button on the lower right hand corner that says “Detect Displays”. Click on it.
4.) On one of the other tabs in the Display Settings Window will be a list of different resolutions, such as 1920x1080. Try them all until you find one that works, it can vary from setup to setup depending on the devices.
5.) On some models of Mac’s you can disable the discrete video card. When discrete video is disable the external display does not work. Re-enabling discrete video fixes the issue.

6.) Run the graphics and EFI updates.
Some firmware updates for Intel-based Macs may not be displayed automatically using Software Update. If they do not appear in Software Update, they must be manually downloaded from the Apple Downloads site. If you are unsure whether your computer needs a particular update, simply download and open the update installer. The installer will alert you if the firmware update is already installed or not needed.
|Question: Why am I not getting any sound? / Why is the sound still playing on computer speakers?|
|Answer: Using "Sound" Settings under System Preferences, or using "Audio MIDI Setup" - select the "HDMI Audio Device" as the audio output. This will switch the audio out from the built in speakers to the adapter.|
|Question: When I connect the mini dvi/mini displayport adapter to my mac my wifi signal drops or completely stops working.|
|Answer: There are several things that can cause these symptoms. Try the following: |
1.) Ensure the adapter is connected and straight, not being bent or angled in any way. Having the Mac on a stand which causes the adapter to hang freely can cause issues as well.
2.) Try swapping the cable connected to the adapter.
3.) Try changing the channel of the wireless signal on your router. It may take several attempts to find one that works for your network. Some that have been reported to work the best are: Channel 1, 5, 6, and 8.
