Well guys I am new here and plan to stick around (intro will be my next thread). Anyways I recently bought a Mac Mini from a friend for a temporary unit until I buy a G5 or something else next. Today I went out and purchased a Samsung Syncmaster P2370 23" monitor. I plugged the monitor into the mac mini with a DVI-D to DVI-D cord. For some reason it does not pick up any signal or anything. It's a blank screen and I can't even get menu to come on. Now when I hook it up to my PC with a VGA and DVI it works fine. The Mac Mini is the older 1.42 GHz with only 1 Gig of ram (soon to be updated) and 80G hard drive. Any idea's what could be the problem? Maybe the DVI-D cable needs to be plain DVI without the D for digital at the end? Thanks a lot for any help and information!!! Edit: I tried the plain DVI/VGA cable with a DVI adapter and it still shows just a blank screen.
