Question about Apple Mac Mini Desktop

1 Answer

Mac Mini 1.42 combo just shut off while I was using it.

I was ripping a DVD and streaming a football game at the same time and my mini just shut off like I pulled the power cord out. However, I had power running to it and there was no power surge. My original thought was it was a fuse. Help please!

    Do any lights show on the mac when you try to start up? Do you get any start-up tones? If not you might have a power supply failure.

Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Unfortunately, the MacMini has very poor ventilation due to it's small size. Chances are the Mac just overheated. Did you hear the Fan blowing as hard and as fast as it could?
It's a self preservation thing...
The Mac should boot up properly if you let it cool down, say an hour or so...
If that is not the case, it might have overheated to the point of burning out...
How old is this machine ? If it is still under warranty, Apple will repair it.
Also be sure there is lots of room around the macmini to allow as much airflow as possible.
Well, let us know how it goes..

How do I connect my iMac 27" i7


You can buy an optional cable that you can plug into the mini-DVI or mini-displayport port at the back of your iMac.see example picture on: http://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/products/new/570842.jpgFirst you need to be sure to know exact if you have a mini-DVI or mini-displayport. The connectors are different and depend on how old your iMac is. Than you can buy the connector that fits your Mac. The you only need to check the connections on your TV. HDMI or DVI will give the best image quality. VGA is older and will result in a lower image quality. Last, you need to buy a cable between the adapter and your TV.

Have you looked into System Preferences>energy saver>schedule? Maybe it's set up to start itself. I have my mother's mac set to start up and shut down automatically. Just a thought.
