    Kellie, it's been several months since I had my AOC monitor problems (on two monitors connected each to a Macmini), but if my memory is correct it was a DVI cable issue.  I went to Best Buy, my least favorite place ever, and picked up different DVI cables and they worked.  At least, I'm pretty sure that's why I picked up those DVI cables.  Never found out why the ones that came with the monitor didn't work.  Wait...I don't think my monitor actually did come with DVI cables!  The first set I bought were crap and had to be replaced.  My issue had nothing to do with the AOC driver, either.

     

    Don't know if this will help, but I believe I can confirm that the first DVI cables didn't work.  If it hadn't been 10 months ago I might remember more.

    Yes, when I got it I was told DVI was fine (and I'm sure it is) however it failed to mention it only came with the anceint VGA cables, not DVI (but it does have a DVI port).  I will try and stop somewhere and pick up a DVI cable and cross my fingers that it works.  I'm guessing going through two adapters it's not too happy.

     

    Thanks again!  Will cross my fingers tomorrow

    those drivers are for windows. I still have problems connection monitors to my macbook pro. When i use the windows partition, no problems with all drivers installed. There are no drivers for mac's, they dont care :-(

    Having read this thread, I was a bit apprehensive before hooking up my AOC i2367F monitor.  As it turned out, my preliminary prep was far more than required: both on a PowerPC G4 and on a new retina-screen PowerBook it was plug and play all the way, no driver download and only autotuning with the presets.   It's not in the same league as Apple's monitor, but for $140 I have no complaint.  I don't know what additonal drivers others feel that they need.

    At the bottom under "support" this is needed for 10.8 and 10.9 and if you have upgraded from 10.8 to 10.9 you will need to re install the driver.

    mine is even weirder - i have a Macbook Air and hooked it up via thunderbolt VDI adapter for VGA connected to the AOC 2350 S about 6 weeks ago - took a bit of fiddling but works wonders

     

    i dropped my MACBook and had to pay 590 US for a new Thunderbolt and USB port on the back right - paid sorted

     

    now i plug in my HDI to the thunderbolt port and i get "no signal message" - thr port is working we tested it in the apple store

     

    ive downloaded the AOC :driver zip" (i didnt have to use this before) but how do i get it to run or install ? if i double click on the zip filr i just get 4 files none that are "actionable" when i click or double click

     

    the only other option is that the VGA/ VDI adapter has shorted ? thats why im getting a no signal message....

    wasting loads of time and really frustrated !!!
