Hi Guys,
I spent a few hours with a friends PC today installing a legit XP home OS everithing went well till I got home and a phone call from my friend revealed that the monitor he uses at home is actualy a flat screen tv that he can use with a pc (the one we used at work was an old crt) windows starts to load but instead of the welcome screen it goes blank, then displays no signal. Has anybody any Ideas.

Boot to safe mode (F8) load TFT drivers and reboot.

If it is reporting no signal, then this is normally down to a connection. Is it plugged in correctly to the right socket.

Again, if there is no signal being recieved then the PC is not able to sent the signal down the cable. Check the cable for any damage including the pin connectors.

Second, try another monitor if you have one as this may throw light on any other issues.

"windows starts to load but instead of the welcome screen it goes blank."

This is when it swaps from safe mode generic drivers to your CRT driver which does not suit the TV.

You need to load drivers for the Tv what make is it?

The make is not known to me as yet, what I am thinking is that windows has loaded its own driver for graphics card instead of the makers driver, cos it looked ok I never checked cos we were running out of time (dooing it in working hours) he is bringing comp back tommorow with all the disks he got from new.
