I bought a mac mini yesterday and have had freezing problems. The mouse & keyboard become totally unresponsive and I have to hold the power button in to power the machine down. I have reinstalled the OS, reset the PRAM, tried a new HD, changed the ram and still no dice. I really hope it's something I am overlooking and not a logic board problem. Any suggestions?

Try and keep problems to one thread.

I'm a bit responsible for this Smithcraft. You'll notice that this is in the wrong section, so I advised that he post in the troubleshooting area.

It would be nice if we were able to delete our own threads.

No problems Bandit! I see so many HTPC threads in the general Mac mini section, or accessory threads not posted in the accessory section, I pretty much don't even notice what section things are posted in! Very Happy

Then again I just use the new posts link to see what everyone is posting. Wink
