    I already download and istalled the latest drivers but no luck.The only way to get a picture on my screen it's when there's no drivers installed.
    I tried to istall an Nvidia Geeforce 7300GT and the only drivers that I can istall and have a picture on my screen are dated back to 22/8/2006 Version 7.14.10.9687.Anything more recent and there is no picture.
    There is no other entry in device manager.
    Thanks for loocking into my problem. Peter

    OK, well after a long long long googling apparently there are two ways of fixing the black screen after login.

    #1: Basically you have to disable the User Account Control (UAC) which is the small messagebox that appears asking for administrator permission each time you open something. Go to Control Panel and type "uac" on the search box on top. then disable it on the link that appears. It worked for me but I had to remove that uac feature which is supposedly for security.

    #2: I would had chosen this option#2 instead of the #1 but apparently this updates didn't apply to my system, maybe it will work for yours:
    Install the updates that are in the first post of this link
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthre...
    Then Restart.


    (Try #2 first. If it didn't work for you, then the option#1)

    Hope this was helpful.

Need driver to work with vista home premium


http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=337&modelid=9986
If this link doesn't open to the Vista driver, then select Vista as your OS from the first box, then you should be able to download the driver.
