Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2009 7:55 AM (in response to Jim Rogalski)this more of a Mac hardware issue, not FCP. You might have gotten faster response in that forum.
My second display monitor - an older 17-inch Apple monitor -< </div>
Older usually implies there is a power supply/convertor box attached to it. If so, unplug it from the computer and from the wall. Let it sit for a few seconds, go get a cup. Power it up.
This usually clears up this problem with ours. Sometimes just unplugging/replugging the display cable from the box can fix it.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2009 7:53 AM (in response to David Bogie Chq-1)Thanks for responding, David. I did unplug the monitor from both the computer and the wall, to no avail. But I will try again tonight when I'm back home, making sure to unplug the monitor from the box as well, and report back.

1. Shut down the computer.
2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
3. Turn on the computer.
4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
6. Release the keys.

Just to be clear, you're saying you got a positive experience out of the forums. And from ME? Rare.
Seriously, we're always glad when something good happens around here. Keep coming back.
