Tip & How-To about Philips 190B6CB/27 19" LCD
If this problem occurs, it's usually after a monitor upgrade from CRT to LCD.
You're booting your computer, everything looks fine. The POST completes, Windows is starting up, then... Black screen.
You know both the card and monitor worked during the POST, so they must be functioning. So what changed?
Chances are the 'Refresh Rate' is set too high for the replacement monitor.
Put the old monitor back on and reboot.
