Post HELP! How do I reset "Display" mirror setting - 04-23-2009, 07:00 AM

Hi guys,

need some help. I was checking out how my mini works with an external display. The extended desktop works well, which is what I need, but I accidentally check the "mirror display" box. Now both screens are scrambled and I cannot even see where that box is to uncheck it. :x

Does anyone know how to edit some configuration file so I can "uncheck" the box and have my computer back to normal with the extended display?

Also just a question: Can I use the mini9 with the display closed, connected to an external keyboard, mouse, and display?

Thanks for the help

Clamshell mode is some kind of a hussle: won't do even on my MacBook Pro. Whereas Windoze does it fine...
