    I have Mac mini G4 use with Samsung 920N monitor. Last two years they've been working together but now I have a blank screen. This monitor doesn't change to stanby only I can't see anything on screen. But Mini works well with other monitor and monitor with other computer. I did PRAM reset and deleted files like preference.displays.
    What can I do?

    I tried it, no change.
    I think this is a driver problem, but Samsung haven't new on, mainly not for Mac.

    plug it in and go to the display settings in system preferences, hit "detect displays" see if that does anything.

    no software/drivers should be required to run any monitor. and it shouldnt just stop working. try different resolutions aswell

    At the beginning I tried this.
    And refresh rate?
    Usually works with 60 Hz but with this monitor try 75 Hz and I can't change it.
    Is it possible force change monitor refresh rate in terminal?

    dont know, probably not...

    the tv should work with 65 Hz, that is very odd.
