I have an avg connector but the monitor seems to be oriented towards a microsoft system. Also, i don't know squat about computers. :man:

Jason Arthur or powell is a mac addict...maybe he knows....above that I know Jon Arsta works for apple, you could try PMing him.

I have no clue how video systems work on a mac and barely know about them on PC.

I am guessing the mac book has a DVI out. In which case you just need a dvi to vga cable. If you are going to use a single display, once you have the cable hooked up just close the mac book. Once closed the image will switch to the monitor. If you want to use a dual display, that will be a bit more involved. If you are unsure what your input is.

As before, it will save time helping if you provide more info. That way the problem can be solved faster. As it will prevent alot of back and forth.

Hello, carynord!
I was wondering could I ask you something via PM, could you make some space on your messages box ?
