    I've been using my Intel Mac-Mini without a hitch for three years now. Previously it had been plugged into a Samsung 32" LCD TV, but I've just swapped it over for a 1080p Panasonic 37".

    Now when I turn on the mac it takes a long time to boot up and then eventually settles on a blue screen. The mouse pointer is visible but nothing else. I've tried using a dvi to vga adaptor and an HDMI to vga cable and the same thing happens.

    I tried a 15" Samsung monitor and the same thing happens.

    If I boot in 'safe' mode it allows me to type in my password but when I try to log in it fades to blue and then returns to the log in page.

    I would really appreciate any help that you could offer.

    Thanks

    what happens if you plug it back to your 32" Samsung?

    Wish I could, unfortunately I don't have easy access to that TV anymore.
