Question about PC Desktops
First try booting in safe mode (F8 for the menu when windows first starts to load) choose safe mode and see if it comes up. If it does, then chances are you have a driver problem, so change to the standard VGA driver (START : Control Panel | System | Hardware Tab - Device Manager) Uninstall the display adapter, and it will either reinstall or you can select a standard VGA adapter. Then reboot as normal and see if it is displaying. You can then try downloading an updated driver (before you delete the Video card from the device managaer, jot down which one it is)
If bootingin safe mode doesn;t work, but the intial screens come up when you power on, then a videw card problem is possible, but most times vidoe cards seem to be all or nothing, so I am betting on a driver problem.
