I have a Macbook 2,1 late 2007 and I'm wondering if it's possible to use a Mini-DVI to DVI adapter combined with a DVI to VGA adapter to use a VGA Monitor as a second display screen.
Someone has tried?

So long as the DVI adapters are both DVI-A it should work. If one is DVI-D it's less likely, unless it performs D-A conversion.
It would be a safer bet to just get a Mini-DVI to VGA. There are ones listed specifically for MacBooks, if you just Google "Mini-DVI to VGA adapter"
I have the 2 cables needed for this and upon testing the 2 cables together hooked up to my computer and a screen it works just fine.
