Something's wrong with the Video. That's obvious.
Could be Resolution (too High), Refresh (off), Other Video (TV Out) at time of boot.

Try, removing TV Video, if you're using, so it's not there at time of boot. I've had that problem, I had to break the connection, that means if you want TV Out, you must Shut Down, recconnect and reboot.

I've had problems with the others too, Resolution and Refresh Rate.

Good Luck,

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.

Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Screen is blank, but the mouse cursor moving

Please let me know if this happens while the system boots or at initial stage of booting.. (Before login Screen appears). If that is the case, then you may have to repair your OS or check for any new hardware added to the system. It wouldnt be a VGA issue as it shows the cursor movin, VGA is working fine. If this is happening after login session, It could be due to explorer.exe being corrupt or some backend process capturing the screen. Try it.. Good luck.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Desktop and start menu is missing what can i do

Is the desktop there with no icons?

Did you put the mouse cursor down where the system tray should be to see if it was on Auto-Hide?

Did you try and right click on the mouse with the cursor anywhere on the desktop to see if a pop-up menu appeared?

Sometimes when computer games are played the game changes the resolution on the monitor putting all the icons off screen, so by right clicking on the mouse and left clicking on properties the display properties will come up and when you go into settings you can restore them.

If none of this applies to your situation then
On boot up keep pressing F8. This will give you options, pick last known good configuration. and boot up.

If that doesn't work, press F8 on boot up and choose safe mode.

If this doesn't work then the Operating System is corrupt and will have to be repaired.

Boot with winxp cd and choose repair console.

You should have erased the system root directory,( the Windows XP installed drive). the boot sector still has the winxp boot information, but does not finds any file on the drive, were they are supposed to be.

You have to Install a fresh copy of winxp, with the winxp boot cd.
