I was watching a movie when my screen turned off, and my computer stopped responding. So I turned it off with the power button.
Now when I boot it up, my screen has been divided up into 4, and each 1/4 shows the same thing. This happens as soon as I turn my computer on. I can't boot windows normally because I think the graphics drivers gives an error. If I uninstall the driver in safe mode, then I can boot windows normally.
Things I've tried: Uninstalling, reinstalling, and updating display adapter. System Restore. Checked for loose cables behind screen.
Any help would be much appreciated.
*Just as I was typing this, I decided to check to see if it still had the problem but now it's working fine..... but I would still like to know if anyone knew what happened

Laptop computers have power saver features that will blank the screen after a period of no input. Default on these can be as short as one minute. Users can change these settings to avoid screen blanking, especially when doing thins like watching movies or streaming video. The power saver feature may be different, and thus the screen shut off timer may be different when the unit is plugged in.
I have a interesting tip to increase your
Laptop's battery life. There is no matter, laptop manufactures gives
the guarantee about the battery that how long it works. The battery of
laptop always stops working very early at some stage in essential
research, just like when you are watching a DVD movie.
Follow the few steps to increase the laptop battery's life :
1. Lower the
backlighting on your screen.
The screen of your Laptop
takes up significant amount of power and you
do not require its maximum brightness. You should have to check your
system and decrease the screen brightness it to a comfortable point.
2. Stop your wireless
signal when you are not using.
After turning off your
Laptop can save max. 20 minutes of your laptop's
battery time because WiFi can use a considerable quantity of power. By
right clicking you can stop your WiFi signal when you are not using.
3. Manage the
power scheme in XP Windows XP
number of predetermined power plans, which control settings like how
rapidly your laptop turns off and when your screen saver boots in. You
can change your laptop power scheme by choosing Control Panel >
Options. For max. Battery life from the "Power scheme" chooses the
option "Max. Battery" and decline the list. There are good choices for
you just like "Low Power Mode" and Portable /Laptop. They don't
as much power as Max Battery. After selecting a power scheme you click
Ok button to finish the process.
