    Hey guys,

    I have not done any modifications to my Mini yet..but about 10mins ago, my main monitor (running two) went black screen for about 5 seconds and then turned back on to where I was and is working normal again!

    Does this sound like a GPU issue, I need to locate the issue soon, as I do have warranty from the tech retailer I purchased it from, including a 14 day no quibbles return, which I'm around 6-7 days into.

    Cheers guys!

    Hi xylitol

    yeah mate, its a late 2012 and was connected via MDP to HDMI. I have two monitors, but don't need them, so selling one off and will be running the kept monitor on a good quality HDMI to HDMI cable.

    Ok, I would test that one monitor setup. I don't remember if there was/is a definitive fix for random black screens, maybe scanning those threads helps.
