Hi Brenden and thanks a million - your suggested solutions were a big help. I tossed out a couple of start-up items (Dropbox was probably causing many issues). Got the Pro and Dell talking/sharing in safe mode. Switched off and restarted in regular mode and it didn't work. Left staring at two very blurry screens with outline of background image and no log in window etc. Powered down. Restarted in safe mode and am working in safe mode as I've lost too many working hours already. What I do see is that 'Displays' thinks I have two DellUZ2315H monitors connected.... I don't seem to be able to delete one of them. Could this be a problem? Thanks again. Jenel

Thanks for replying, Jenel, and that additional info, it really helps! Since you're seeing duplicate monitors listed, your next step is to reset NVRAM (nonvolatile random-access memory) on your Mac and here is more info:
