monitor swiches off when log off user??

  greenimp 21:42 10 Jul 2006

Hi all,
Hope I can find some assistance after hours of searching.
Ive just sorted a mates pc out, which involved installing a new graphics card and reinstalling xp. Also installled Zone Alarm
However, now when he logs off (to return to welcome screen) the monitor switches off although the pc is still running.

The only poss fix I've found is this:

However running this is a registry edit, and I'm unsure of the implications if it goes wrong.

Hopefully there's a simple fix.

Your link's not working... but I wouldn't have any compunction about a simple reg hack. Everyone needs to make one sooner or later. If you can give the correct link, I'll see what I think.

Anything from Kelly's Korner is totally trustworthy.

Just checked the same value on my desktop and it is zero, so it's obviously okay. Whether it will cure the problem is another question.

If I run the reg edit and it doesn't work, will system restore roll back the registery to before the edit was done (if that makes sense)??

If it doesn't cure the problem, I can see no good reason why you would need to roll back; as I say, it obviously has no negative effect since my dekstop PC already has the zero value.
