    I have an Intel Mac Mini that I use with a Viewsonic DVI LCD.

    My problem is that the gray boot screen doesn't ever appear. The computer starts up, but the display doesn't come on until I unplug the monitor and plug it back into the mini, then it comes on and I see the login window.

    Anyone have any tips for me? I've tried the cmd-opt-p-r, and resetting it via plugging in the power while holding the power button, but to no avail.

    Any tips appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Can you try it on other display with other cable? Could be defective cable or port in monitor

    Thanks for the suggestion, Hellhammer. I forgot to mention that I have tried it on three different cable/monitor pairs, although they are all of the Viewsonic brand, but different models.

    That's odd. Is there an Apple store or reseller near you, so you could take it to them so they can take a look? Mini's port might be defective but as I said, that's odd.
