I have an XP2400+ which has just started to misbehave.
on Bootup, its OK until it gets to just before the Win 98 music then the Monitor switches off,
and I can not switch it back on again.
I think all Progs are loaded OK.

you sure u havent put the resoloution of your monitor higher then it can peform. Remove the driver in safe mode and boot up normally and re install it.

You can drop the res in safe mode and retry it

Thanks to Johnny,Infamous,Woodchip.
I tried all suggestions but none worked.
I have now reformated the H.Drive and it is working fine.
Thanks again...eqpq.
