Resetting your Mac System Management Controller (SMC) and/or the Mac PRAM/NVRAM can be a solution. This is sometimes necessary to restore normal lower level system functionality to your Mac, particularly for power and hardware related troubles.
*When doing the resets, make sure the HyperDrive is disconnected from computer and nothing is connected to any of the ports on the HyperDrive. Once the reset(s) are done, you may connect the HyperDrive to your computer.
For MacBooks with Apple M1 chip
These Macs do not have an SMC, but there is a way to do a reset similar to the SMC reset:
- Shut down your Mac.
- Once the computer is completely shut down, close the lid of the MacBook.
- Wait 30 seconds, then open the lid press the power button to turn on your Mac.
For a step-by-step:
1.) Disconnect the HyperDrive from the laptop and make sure nothing is connected to the HyperDrive.
2.) Click on the Apple logo on your MacBook and select "Shut Down".
3.) Close the lid of the MacBook and wait 30 seconds.
4.) After 30 seconds, launch your MacBook and sign in.
5.) Connect your HyperDrive and launch the macOS InstantView App from the "HYPERDISPLY" drive.
6.) Connect your monitors one by one to the HDMI ports.
