    I had an old 17" Studio Display connected to my Windows PC with an Apple ADC to DVI adapter and it worked fine. I just bought a Mac Mini and connect the Studio Display to it using a Mini Displayport to DVI adapter (in addition to the ADC to DVI adapter).

    The first couple days when I first connected it, it worked fine. I recently restarted the Mini and now after the Apple logo screen my display goes black. The Mini is still on, but no video. To narrow things down, I connected the display back to the PC and it still works. Also, if I boot with the Mac install disc, the display works also.

    Help! I'm stuck... Any ideas?

    It sounds like OSX is pushing a resolution/refresh that is outside of the monitor's range. You might try booting in safe mode to see if that works.
