    I got a MacMini, I dont use it that opten, but the other day Iconnected it up to get some use out of it, and it got to the desktop and after about 10 or so seconds, the screen started to go fizzy, then it went off.

    I moved the Mac around a bit and it came on and then back off again.

    For a moment, I thought it might be the cable but no, its not that.

    I had it plugged into my KVM instead of my Test Linux PC and the Linux PC is just fine with the cable, plus, just i ncase, I have also tried it on another cable.

    So, I have a rotten feeling the MacMini is duffed.

    One of the reasons I hate all in one things...

    Is there however a known issue and hopefully a cure to this, or am I just expected to accept it?

    Bypass the KVM completely and try that.

    Yeah, sorry, I tried that too.
    The screen light does go blue and so its certainly seeing that there is something trying to happen, but other than that...
