    Hi guys, i recently made the switch to a mac mini and was loving it!

    however, my screen no longer receives a signal and i can't figure out why. i've tried 3 different screens and cables (including a brand new LG one) so i'm guessing they're not at fault.

    do you have any suggestions?
    many thanks, rich

    Which output are using?

    If the computer is very new, you should probably get it exchanged as a defective assuming it was not BTO.

    the standard vga connecter.

    sorry if i wasn't clear in the original post, but the screen had been working until about 3 days ago.


    also found that when i unplug the vga cable from the mac the screen says "check signal cable", then if i plug it bag into the vga to dvi apater (even when it's not attached to the computer) it goes straight to the no signal message again.
