    help. osx starts monitor out of range. cant do anything!
    Help

    I purchased a new mac mini from craigs list and when I went to boot the frist time I can't do anything. When it goes to the desktop it goes out of my monitors range. How can I fix this so I can do stuff on this computer. I also do not know the root password. I really want ot just install everything fresh. How can I do that? It is an intel mac mini if that matters.
    thanks

    Try pressing shift while booting as it will go into safe mode.

    If you don't know the root password, just boot with the install DVD (Press C while booting with the disc in drive) and from thereon you can reset the password as well as reinstall the full OS.
