Hi,

I was tinkering with my new Mini this evening and, in the screen resolution screen, selected tilt 90 degrees to see what happened. I've now got my Mini stuck in a resolution my monitor doesn't support.

I've tried booting into safe mode (following these instructions http://www.osxfaq.com/dailytips/02-2003/02-25.wshttp://www.osxfaq.com/dailytips/02-2003/02-25.ws) but that doesn't seem to help.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
PeteC

Try resetting the PRAM and NVRAM, instructions here. f you have one available connect anoter monitor and see if it will autodetect it. You should then be able to reconect the other monitor.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I tried the "spare" monitor trick and that seems to have worked.

Thanks again!
