Re: Mac mini will not produce video
Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Well, that sounds pretty bad. Does the Mac make the start-up sound when you turn it on?
Does the little light in front turn on ?
Do you hear the hard drive spinning up and working to boot the mac ?
So, if all these questions are answered Yes....
sounds like the video connection has blown.
If you say the Mac is almost new, Apple should cover this with the one year warranty.

That Mac has a hdmi port and a mini display port. The monitor has a saga port. So ether a hdmi-svga. Or miniDisplay port-svga.
Any usb keyboard will work. So any Mac keyboard newer than 12 years should be good, and newer pic keyboards will work. Beware of older keyboards that have round plugs. On macs these were ADB ports. On PC's, they used PS2 (ADB, ps2, usb are all different, you want the flat rectangle USB)
U.S. pc keyboards also have two modifier keys wired different than the U.S. Mac keyboards, but this can be adjusted in the system preferences. Can't say for non U.S. KBs. They are the windows/alt keys. Vs Opt/Command keys. That is, if you are soused to using a Mac, the key that is closest to the spacebar (command key) is applied by the second key over rather than the first. Again, this can be modified in the Sys Prefs.
Hi Janice, Any time I get a wireless keyboard problem the first thing I do is put in a fresh set of betteries. Nine times out of ten that cures the problem. If it doesn't then further investigation is required - howver my workshop time makes it cheaper to buy a new keyboard. The Mac keyboard has Scroll-lock mapped to F14 but I think the wireless keyboard doesn't have that key.Are the arrow keys just not working in one program or not working at all?
Your mac mini more than likely has a DVI plug on it for a monitor. You just need a DVI to VGA adapter. You can get them at any computer store for around $7. You can get them at best buy also, but for some reason their cables and adapters are way overpriced.
If you don't have a mac mini, then your connection will be different. If that is the case then I would need to know that model of your computer. Here is a link to a random picture of a DVI port:
I had the same problem, but with Windows and Ubuntu I had to make two partitions. I can't remember exactly how I did it but I had to have reference to Ubuntu in each partitions. I hope this helps. mysleuth
The LC520 must be an old friend. It was built in 1993. That did not have the safeguards that Macs have today, although I don't know if that created your problem with the drive. It might be that a component or a piece of wiring simply got old and does not perform properly anymore. Sort of like me . . .
For what it's worth, that Mac used OS7, and that system is way obsolete now. There are no applications around that work with that system. You might think of laying it to rest, or better yet, recyclingit, and getting a new, shiny Mac that will make your heart sing once more.
