    Help with external monitor
    Hi guys, Just turned my macbook on to find that the external monitor I use with it does not display anything. I unplugged the dvi connector, reconnected and the desktop showed up for about 10 seconds then powers off. Any ideas?

    First try restarting your Mac... If there is still no joy, check in the System Preferences > Displays and click "Detect Displays". You could also try repairing permissions and then restarting your Mac. By the way, what version of OS X are you using? You can add this to your forum profile in "Forum settings". Cheers Rounik
