Not really a Mac person here (*nix, not Windoze) and I have this MacBook and I've plugged in an external monitor to be able to work with it until repaired or replaced. When its plugged in and I boot the mac the external screen looks like a normal startup until the login prompt is displayed. Then when I enter my login credentials and press Enter there is a progress bar that appears and it does nothing else. If I reboot this will repeat.

Is there any magic trick to request that the config/drivers for the logging in user be forced to generic or to search for a more compatible version?

Thanks for any guidance/suggestions.

Thanks Cory. The reset NVRAM seemed to do the trick. Sorry I didn't respond sooner.
