Here is the situation:
My macbook hard crashes (basically appears to turn off) when I plug in my VGA out dongle.
I have looked through the logs and cannot find any related logging.
The VGA display device (i.e. LG LCD display) was on at the time and the VGA signal is routed through a Belkin KVM device, although I have had the same behaviour without the KVM device too.
To make the situation even more difficult to figure out it does not occur every time I connect the dongle, in fact it is relatively rare, probably no more than once a week.
Here are my other specs:
MacBook Pro 15 in Purchased December 2008 OS X 10.5.8
Has anyone else seen this type of behaviour before? Any suggestions on what might be the cause?
