Windows Xp help.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a computer that is running xp and it has developed a problem. When the computer starts up it goes through the normal screens then shows the xp loading screen. The next screen says welcome and it then proceeds to go black. Has anyone experienced a similar problem.

The screen actually seems to be in sleep mode I tried a different monitor and no luck. I see the desktop for a brief moment before it actually goes black.

Thanks in advance.

Windows XP must have been set to a resolution that the current monitor you're using cannot support. Unfortunately some monitors still do not have the ability to notify you that you're out of range, thus, the confusion on whether you have a problem with the video card or the monitor. tongue.gif
