Looking for Samsung S24B300BL display driver for select finest resolution picture.

Win Wista worked in perfect 1980x1080 resolution.

Why?

 

Thank you!

1. Try resetting the NVRAM & PRAM as per > About NVRAM and PRAM

 

2. Make sure that your both your Mac Mini's Software and Firmware are up to date.

 

see > EFI and SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs

 

If it is a new Mac Mini, then you may need to wait a bit for a Firmware Update to correct the problem.

 

Alternatlly if a different DVI cable does not solve the problem, then you might want to try a MiniDisplay Port to VGA adapter and a VGA cable connected up to the Thunderbolt/MiniDisplay Port to see if you can get full 1980x1080.

    You should not need drivers like Windows.

     

    It looks like the S24B300BL supports both D-Sub (VGA) and DVIx1 (DVI-D).

     

    Are you using the Apple supplied HDMI to DVI Adapter and a DVI-D cable or some other adapter and cable configuration?

    Sure, I'm using included Apple HDMI to DVI adapter and DVI-D single link cable.

    Maybe I need to use DVI-D dual link cable or what?

     

    Thank you!
