So I recently got a Mac Mini about two weeks ago and for some reason while I am on it the display will go blank and then return after a few seconds. It is happening very frequently. I checked the HDMI cable, I checked my tv and nothing seems to be wrong with them and I don't know what is going on.

 

I am getting a bit frustrated because this Mac is brand spanking new and it is totally acting up for no reason whatsoever.

 

Could someone please help me with this? I don't want my new computer to be useless. I need it.

Mac mini (Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
