    Just pulled an external from the closet and hooked it up to my Mac.

    The monitor has a blue hue that I thought at first was the monitor itself but after hooking up my netbook, it appears to be a problem with the adapter or the Mac not sending the right color.

    Any have this problem before?

    Is this with a DVI connector or VGA?
    Are you using the default color profile? Some have had this issue and resolved it by creating a custom profile for the external display and just using the default setting in it. Apparently this is a software bug they havent gotten ironed out yet.

    Don't think it's the monitor. It works fine on other machines.

    Check the pins and make sure they aren't bent or touching

    Yup, it's the pins or the cable itself. If possible, replace it.

    The cable works fine for other machines and I just bought the adapter yesterday to connect it to my iMac
