    I have an imac 24 inch model with a cracked screen. I bought a mini dvi to vga adapter and wondered is there any special way I need to hook it up to use an external monitor? Unfortunately, I can not access anything on that computer because the screen is cracked. Is some magic combination of keys on boot to have the computer use the external monitor?
    Thanks!

    Hopefully that works I don't imagine you had screen sharing enable on your iMac?

    Otherwise it could be attempted via another Mac.
