I had the same problem with an older laptop. The solution was to firstly, use the white HDMI adaptor that came with laptop and connect a male to male HDMI cable to the HDMI socket on the back of my Samsung and/or my Philips monitor. However, I have two HDMI cables and it only seems to work with one but not the other.
I discovered there are different types of DVI cable and you can see everything here http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html
If you have the wrong type of cable, it will not work. Mine is a DVI-D dual link and it works a treat.
Hope it helps.

OK, OK, I think I've solved it. Once again, I'm no techie but I hate not solving a problem, so I dug deeper,learned Korean last night and found thid solution - it's free and takes one minute.
As I thought originally, the problem stems from the Samsung expecting a TV signal in the HDMI port so you have to tell it it's a computer signal.
Go from the Mac HDMI socket to the Monitor HDMI socket with an HDMI cable.
Go to the Samsung input/source button on the remote and on that screen select tools.
Select 'edit name'
Scroll down to PC and press enter. It should now read HDMI - PC
Under apple 'system prefs - displays, select your monitor pref - mine is 1080p
and... BINGO, it should work.
If it works for you guys, I accept gifts of beer and public praise with no problem.

On a Samsung TV (No matter what port the HDMI is connected to) the computer display will always appear on HDMI 1/DVI.
