MacBook Pro shuts off (occasionally) while connected to external monitor.

Asked by wenn (2673points) March 12th, 2010

I just got an LG external monitor for my Macbook Pro recently, I am connecting with Mini Display port to DVI and DVI to HDMI. It looks great, but my laptop has just shut off at random about 2 or 3 times now and when I restart my clock gets reset to year 2000.

Any thoughts or similar experiences? I have googled a bit but nothing useful as of yet.

Is it plugged in?

I don’t think the external monitor is the problem. I think that is just a coincident. I would try resetting the SMC first.
