Have a minimac. My monitor blacks out on the moment it should display the finder. It used to work but after doing a system update which crashed this happened. I re-installed the system but that didn't work. When starting from the system CD the display works fine. Any ideas?
Sounds like dodgy video drivers or something similar. I thought hardware problem but if it doesn't do it when using the system disc it couldn't be that either. Have you tried reinstalling the system after doing a full erase?
I connected a expensive monitor to the mini mac and the problem vanished...
After that i tried updating my system and while updating the monitor turns black again. Restarting won't help. Re-installing system won't help (not full erase though).
Can anyone help me out with this problem?
