If it has on-board graphics, try installing a graphics card and see if that helps. Also test with a different monitor. Sounds like one of those two things.

Check the connections. Sometimes that happens when you accidently pull a cable slightly out of the wall. It used to happen to the school computers all the time, so don't worry about it too much. Just make sure all the cables are as tight as they can go.

Have you zapped the p-ram? Hold Apple, Option, P and R keys when you hear the chime. Wait for four more chimes and release.
Try "detect displays" from display preferences. In system preferences, displays, be sure brightness control is turned up.

Mac OS X V 10.6.8 can't click on anything after being idle for awhile. Freeze up, have to restart to fix.

It would be much better if you downgrade your OS.
#1) If you're on the edge with regard to PCI/USB/FW power drains, 10.6.3 might just put you over the edge & cause sudden shutdowns. The enhanced Open GL/CL performance may be coming at a price in terms of power drain.
#2) Growl, even the latest version, is still not quite ready for prime time on some machines if you use a lot of real-time media playback. It seems to command top priority even when it's not appropriate.

Computer sounds like it is starting up but screen is black - is it possible that the monitor has gone bad? Or does that suggest something worse?

It is quite possible that your monitor has gone bad with age or impact. Fastest test is to hook up a separate display using the auxiliary monitor port -- if you get an image on that monitor but not on your main monitor, and the rest of the computer operates properly, your LCD panel or inverter has gone bad.
Either is a relatively simple fix for a certified technician. The inverter MSRPs for $60-80 but can be found for as little as $16 used. The LCD panel MSRPs for $250-300, but can be had for as little as $80 used. Prices quoted are for the 17" version iMac.

If you have cleared the PRAM with command-option-P-R and you do not get either a chime or error tones on boot, you have a logic board or power supply issue, and there is no DIY fix for this.

Mac mini display problem

Sounds like your monitor is not set right. Is the monitor LCD or CRT type? You can open system preferences from the top of the screen under the apple icon. Try and see if you can adjust the resolution settings. Also if you have an LCD screen set to "auto" adjust to reset the screen. Good Luck.
