Somebody help please, I fiddled with my display settings via the following, display,settings,advanced,monitor,properties, driver, can't remember the next point, but it had something like this: start with the following options cd, demand, etc. I clicked demand and then restarted the system, only for it to boot to the windows xp home edition start up page, and then went blank afterwards it doesn't even show the log on page. I use a geforce card, tried plugging to the the tele but won't show or maybe I couldn't fin the compatible channel. is there anything I can do to reverse this problem, will re installing windows help?

Have you tried starting in safe mode and then using a restore point which is prior to your tinkering. You did make a restore point didn't you??????????

Thanks Smiler. Unfortunately I did not make a restore point.

XP makes restore points when you make changes to the system so there should smoe in the system give it a try

Thanks a lot Smiler, I used the windows xp cd to repair the home editon installation and that restored the system to normal.
