Re: display name

Hi, In Windows XP, if by "display name" you are referring to the username during login/logon, it can be replaced by going to Start, Control Panel, User Accounts, Change an Account, choose your account (last name), Change my Name, Provide New Name, follow all other on screen instructions. hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

1) First try to go into the control panel under display and try a different resolution. Or try to adjust the display on the actual monitor. If this does not help try Starting the Last Know Good Configuration.

2) The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the computer started successfully. Use the Last Known Good Configuration feature when you cannot start Windows XP after you make a change to your computer, or when you suspect that a change that you just made may cause a problem.

How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

Video card

I guess u must be aware that your graphic card requires/capable of:
  • Supports Microsoft DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.0 with Shader Model 4.0 for Microsoft Windows Vista or XP
  • 1 dual-link DVI-I, VGA and 1 HDTV outputs; HDCP-capable
The only thing I can suggest is from the BIOS, change the setting of display to PCIE-*****-IGP sequence and then try the video output....sodeep

the problem is the update you downloaded someone mixed with your graphic chip.. causeing it to only display dots and lines. the hp logo with the back round is the start up page. here are 2 ideas you might wanna try.

1. if your graphics car is in a AGP or PCI, pull it out and try useing the default card build in the computer.. if it is the default go out and bye a cheap graphics card and see if that works.. if not return it and get your money back.

2. try useing a diffrent moniter.. your moniter might of blown out. if that still dont fix it you might need to contact HP or the moniters manufactuer.

hope this helped!
