Can't for the life of my connect my Macbook Air to a Dell u2711 monitor. Tried two mini displayport to dual DVI adapters, one from Apple, one from Kanex. Both recognized the monitor, but it remained black. Then I tried two mini displayport to displayport cables, the screen shows a massive snowstorm at anything above 1080i.


I want 2560x1440, which the Macbook Air seems capable of spitting out. I just don't know how. I'm ready to return the Dell screen and replace it with the Apple counterpart.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Dell u2711
