I just purchased the Del U2412M monitor. I have a new Apple MacBook retina 13 inch computer. I connected the monitor with an HDM I to DVI cable. The monitor works but none of the information on my computer is showing up on the monitor. What do you think the issue would be?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    Chef,  The computer and monitor seem to be connecting, after you connect, in system preferences>displays, click the arrangement tab and make sure mirror displays is checked.   Hope this helps, Best

    Chef,  Glad this worked for you, also in system preferences>displays there is a check box for show displays in the menu bar, if you check that one it will place access to the display preferences there with a drop down menu so you don't need to go to system preferences for basic functions of display.  All the best. SJP
