When I turn on pc it gets to windows xp screen and no further. Although it is still on it loses the power to the monitor. There are lines down the screen as it starts up. Also the fan is always on. Have started in safe mode and restored to a previous point but that did not help. Also ran a virus scan and it says it is clean.Sorry if explanation is a bit jumbled. Can anyone help as don't know what else to try.
It starts up ok in safe mode. The lines are there all the time. The power light is still on the monitor. As said before the screen displays the xp screen but does not show the log in screen. The monitor does work on another pc. Hope this helps. As for other posters I am not at my own computer at the moment to your suggestions. Will try them later.
checked graphics card and memory. restarted computer but no difference. Checked resolution settings in control panal,set on the lowest setting, wont let me adjust to the correct settings.My graphics card is Nvidi GeForce 6200 turbocache.Thanks so far.
Installed new driver unfortunately still no change. So is it the graphics card that is stopping me booting the pc. Would the same graphics card be the best to buy or is there any other you could suggest. Thanks
i know u say the mono works on a other machine but just to chek on the pc with the problem the power cable is conected propley and so's the VGA/DVI cable corect? and when the display goes have u tried fiddaling with the VGA/DVI cable and disconecting the power to the mono then reataching?
if so then i would have to concur with the others regarding your graphics card and recommend u get a new one. if it was the driver u wouldn't get the lines on screen it would just be using the basic drivers untill u reinstalled the corect one
