Downloaded monitor driver screen has gone blank!

  ciorsten 03:55 22 May 2004

I downloaded a monitor driver (obviously the wrong one) and now my computer won't show anything no matter which monitor I plug it into. Only the XP logo (home edition) will show then the screen goes blank so I can't even do a restore to undo the driver I installed. Safe mode won't show either. Can anyone help?

Hi Ciorsten. Youre up late too? Its a nightmare your problem but dont worry. Interupt the normal boot up by pressing the F8 key.

Then go through the steps when asked, but select the VGA Safe mode. I think that should restore the old VGA driver as default.

This is sufficient for you to work and roll back the driver and select the correct one. I am not 100% on this but try it as you cant hurt anything. (more)

Let me know if you have any problems, Im here too!! Kefty
