X6000 video driver

I'm getting a problem similar to the black screen upon launching Windows XP. I went into safe mode and was able to get into the Windows screen. I removed the ATI driver and everything works after restarting. However, I can't do many things without the driver installed.

I tried the memory solutions mentioned but that didn't work. Is there something wrong with my video card? Any help would be appreciated.

Monitor only works on safe mode,why?


Vga drivers might have been corrupted and need to be updated.

Video drivers are applications that enhance your on-screen display. The drivers make your text and images sharper and clearer. Some devices and applications may corrupt display drivers. You can, however, repair the drivers in Safe Mode. Safe Mode is an area of Windows that only allows a limited number of applications to run, thereby making it ideal for repairing and restoring your display driver. Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Double-click "System and Maintenance" and click "Device Manager" to launch the hardware management console if you are using Windows Vista or 7. For Windows XP users, right-click "My Computer" on the desktop and click "Manage." Click "Device Manager" to launch the hardware management console. Click the "Display Adapter" to expand it. Make a note of the video driver that contains a question or exclamation mark. A question or exclamation mark means the video driver is either damaged or missing. Close the Device Manager. Write down your computer's model and serial number. The location of the serial number varies with different computer models but can generally be found on the front or back of your computer. Go to your computer manufacturer's website and locate the "Support and Drivers" section. Locate "Driver Downloads." When prompted, type your serial or model number to locate the drivers compatible with your computer. Click "Download" next to the video driver compatible with your computer. Select "Save" and download the video driver installation file on your desktop. Restart your computer and press "F8" repeatedly before Windows reloads to launch the Advanced Options Menu. Select "Safe Mode" and press "Enter" to launch Windows Safe Mode. Double-click the video driver you installed and click "Run" to install the driver on your computer. When the installation completes, go back to the Device Manager and click "Display Adapters." Make sure that your video driver no longer contains a question or exclamation mark. If the driver still contains a question or exclamation mark, right-click it and click "Update driver." This launches the launch the driver installation wizard. Insert your Windows installation CD and click "Install software automatically (Recommended)" and then click "Next." The install wizard installs the video driver automatically. Restart your computer normally when the installation completes. Hope this helps.

When i turn my computer dell latitude d620 on it comes to the dell screen then the windows xp screen and then it goes black with nothing more than the mouse. what could be the problem?


This sounds like a video issue. Try starting the system into safe mode (after the dell screen, tap F8 to get the startup menu and then select safe mode) When in safe mode, go to the control panel and remove the display adapter driver from the device manager under System > hardware tab. Try booting into normal mode windows- you should be able to get into windows at that point. Download and reinstall the graphics driver from support.dell.com. If the issue reoccurs after you've reinstalled the graphics driver, it means that the video card on your system has gone out. At that point, contact Dell technical support if you are in warranty to get service- if not, try pricing the replacement video card from Ebay or Dell parts service.

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch


Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.

Facing windows XP problem


Try running Windows in safe mode by turning the computer and holding down on the F8 button while the computer is booting.

Instead of the Windows XP screen you will get a menu displayed. Select the safe mode option and press enter.

If Windows doesn't complete startup in safe mode, you will have to reinstall Windows.

Ati Radeon 9000 video card driver


It could be related to the display resolution settings. If you can boot into "VGA mode", that should get you started.

Try to boot in safe mode. From a cold boot, hit f8 till it gives you several options including "safe mode". Do that and if you can boot to windows let it do it's stuff before restarting normally. Good luck
