So I have had my mini for a little under a year and about one month back it started to become unresponsive when coming out of sleep mode (I activated it by moving the mouse) but only recently has something gone wrong to this proportion. About 2 days back it wouldn't send any video to my screen. I have a viewsonic from like 2010 idk it's exact model but it stopped showing anything for no reason. My mac is my most prized possession and I cared for it really well but no it just stopped working. I use a hdmi to dvi converter. And it worked fine tell 2 days ago. And to add on top of that it now boots up for 30 seconds then turns off. (I see the light) I already tried all the keyboard shortcuts but I can't do much because of my lack of a screen obviously. The only way for it to stay on for more then 30 seconds is for me to hold windows+r. Then a British guy says press enter if you want your main language to be English. I'm stuck here for now not knowing whether it's my moniter not working display, my hdmi to dvi cable not sending info, and on top of that I have to deal with the power problem for my mac. I called apple support and I did restart unplug Yada Yada and I can see my macs in sleep mode so maybe I have the power fixed but I can't tell because I'm getting no video. All help I welcome I really need it seeing as I'm homeschooled and my life revolves around this little cube (late 2012 Mac mini) also I've heard that mac minis and viewsonic a don't get along well....
