Hello everybody,

 

I am experiencing some weird things on my mac mini computer and need some help to solve the issue. For a little while, from time to time, my mac mini is showing strange colors and lines along the screen. Usually I turn it off then after few minutes I will turn it on again and it's alright but this morning it was doing it repeatedly also I wanted to check what is happening if I don't turn it off. So it turn off by itself and on again few times and every time it came on, the colors and lines were back. Until finally I turned it off and left it so for a good few hours. It is working now but I do not know for how long. I do not play games on it, neither surf on unsecure sites on the internet. I am not sure if the problem is with the mac mini or the screen ( I have a 19" HP screen). 

 

I appreciate any suggestion and help,

Best regards,
Cristina

Are you able to test the computer with another monitor, such as borrow a monitor from a friend?

Or maybe take the monitor to a friend's house to try with their computer?

Either should tell us whether it is an issue with the Mini or the monitor.

Thank you for the reply. I wasn't able to do that yet. I am not sure I will be able to do that but I will try. Majority of the people in my area use lap tops.

Thank you for the fast replay. I will try to do so.

Mean time, I manage to take a picture of the damaged screen but I am not sure how to upload it on the forum.

Most laptops still have a video output that allow connection to an external monitor or projector. Assuming you can find a friend with a laptop that has a video output that will work with your monitor, then you should be able to test your monitor with their laptop.
