It could be one of several things such as:
Loose cable, or bent pins on cable.
Loose video card.
burnt out power for the video card chip on mainboard (smells bad).
Video card is dead.
Remove the monitor cable from the Video card (back of PC),Open your PC case, earth yourself by touching the casing then see if the video card is loose, if so push it in. If not take it out anyway and put it in again, blowing the dust away (or even better use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum all the dirt out of your PC). Make sure it sits correctly.
Put the cable back on making sure it fits tight and that no pins are bent, and turn it on.
If this doesn´t work then try a different video card, even an old one. IF this works your video card is faulty.

I have the notebook PC x551 and when I tune it on


Have you try safemode? After the pc starts start pressing the F8 key.
Choose safe mode and see if you can login and see the desktop. If you do then in safe mode run anti-virus software. If you use Windows XP see if you can login as "administrator". Your profile could be corrupted. For vista, Win7 requires other method dificult to explain to login as administratore.

Remove User Accounts from the Login Screen in Windows XP So you login to your...


Remove User Accounts from the Login Screen in Windows XP
So you login to your computer every single day, but there’s morethan one account to choose from… either because you got the computerfrom somebody else, or some software package added a user account thatyou really don’t want to see. So how do we hide that other account fromthe login screen?
There’s a simple registry that you can do to hide accounts fromthe login screen, or you could alternatively delete the user account ifyou really don’t need it. Both methods are listed below.

Open up regedit.exe through the start menu Run box, and then navigate down to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NT
CurrentVersionWinlogonSpecialAccountsUserList
On the right-hand side you’ll see a list of keys that correspond touser accounts that are considered “Special” and are not to be shown onthe login screen

Create a new DWORD value with the same name as the user name thatyou want to hide. You’ll note that the actual username in theillustration was “OtherPerson” and not the description that was shownon the login screen.
To unhide the account, simply delete the registry key that you created.

The next time you log off you’ll see that the other account is gone.
Hide User Account with Tweak UI
You can also use the Microsoft Tweak UI PowerToy to do the same thing. (Thanks to Gustav for reminding me to include this)

Just click on the Logon key in the left hand side, and then uncheck the box for “Show <username> on Welcome screen”
Login to Hidden Account
You can still login to the account even though it’s not shown… You’ll just have to use a little trick.
At the login screen, just hit the Ctrl+Alt+Delete combination twicein a row, and you’ll be presented with the old-school login screen,where you have to manually enter the username.

Type the name and password of the other user, and login.
Delete User Account
Alternatively you can always delete the user account if you areabsolutely sure that you don’t need that user account anymore.Right-click on “My Computer” and choose “Manage”

Navigate down through “Local Users and Groups” and then Users, and thenlocate the username in the list that you’d like to get rid of.

Just right-click and choose Delete. Note that this step cannot bereversed, so make sure you only delete accounts you really really don’twant anymore. If you are unsure, you can just hide them using the firstoption above.

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.

Restart computer -> Keep tapping on F8 key till safe mode option appears-> login using safe mode -> when login complete -> rightclick on my computer -> properties-> hardware tab -> Device Manager -> click on Sub-option "Display Adapters"-> Right click the adapter inside -> properties -> driver tab -> rollback drivers.
Follow instructions and restart and choose normal windows if asked.

If not successful, goto start -> all programs -> Accessories -> System tools, -> system resore -> choose restore to a previous... -> choose a date before the date you updated drivers. dont go 3-4 month, you might loose data. choose a closer date to the date you found the issue. follow the instructions.
