When you start yr computer, after the first screen press F8, and select enable VGA, It should show the screen in normal mode, but then you have to install a proper driver for your display adapter.
Please update further....

Can you get a screen in safe mode .?
When an LCD screen has turned completely white, there are three normal causes: the screen is defective, the video cable is not connected correctly, or the graphics card on the motherboard of the computer is faulty.

My laptop moniter turns on as usual with the proper reading. I start in safe mode as normal..wait about 10 min and screen goes white


hello

"I start in safe mode as normal."

safe mode is not a normal thing during your windows boot sequence :)
if your display works ok until those 10 minutes of safe mode are over i would say that reinstalling your windows operating system will most likely solve your monitor issues :)

Forgot password, need to reset


You can reset any user password by logging in using the Administrator account through Safe Mode. In Windows XP Home you cannot log into the Administrator account in normal mode.
When your computer is starting up, hold down the F8 key. This will bring you to a black screen with white text. Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode" and then hit enter. This will boot the computer into Safe Mode, which will look normal except the resolution will be very low. Log in as the Administrator (should have a blank password). Once logged in, open the Control Panel, then User accounts, then reset the password or whatever user you want. Reboot the machine to get back into normal mode.

You are not typeing in to correct password.
If you can not remember the password, you will have to restore from restoration disks.
Check that your cap locks are not on and you are correct with entered password.

Problm with viewsonic va712b


sounds like the operating mode is at a frequency or refresh rate that is outside the viewsonic operating specifications when in normal mode. possible solution: in safe mode access control panel, system, devices (hardware) and look for display. do a right click and uninstall. repeat right click and "scan for hardware changes". That might reset the monitor operating modes but it also gives you a chance to reinstall drivers. If this does not work, try other monitor crt/lcd to see what happens.

I cannot log on to computer, dont know password


try starting in safe mode(press power button like turning on normally then tapping F8 when the screen shows dell on it). choose safe mode. put administrator in as thu username and leave password blank. hopefully it works. if it does get you into the system i think you can go to control panel and then user accounts. you should be able to see the other user names there and you can delete passwords too. then you can restart and log on normally hopefully
