    I have an '07 vintage (DVI) Mac Mini I use as a media center. I haven't used it in a few months & its been shut down during that time. I went to start it up today & the power light went on & I could hear the fan start up but no start-up chime & no video.

    I did an PMU reset to no avail. I'm thinking the logic board is done (it's under warranty & I have an appt. with a "genius" tomorrow). Just wondering if there is anything else I should try before I bring it in.

    You could try zapping the PRAM. Hold down the Command + Option + P + R keys when powering up, (normally) you'd wait until you hear the system startup chime 3-4 times and then let go. I think even without the chime, you'll be able to hear it cycle, so cycle it 3-4 times and see if that helps any.

    Just got back from the Apple Store. They confirmed it was a bad logic board and are replacing it (still on warranty).
