Question about HP Pavilion MX70 17" CRT Monitor
I just updated my computer with windows xp but right before my computer makes it to the user log screen it shuts off and wont come on
Possible reasons for this is a defective video card or the monitor
itself or Windows installation failure. First, isolate the problem by swapping a working monitor to
your system and check if the problem still persists. If it still
doesn't work, then video card is the culprit. Some defective video
cards function only on the lower resolution settings, which is the
default resolution in the installation process of Windows XP. When the installation
is finished, boot loader set the user interface to a much higher resolution which the defective video card is incapable of.
To further verify this, try pressing F8 and start Windows XP in a Safe Mode. If it boots properly, then Windows XP is incapable of going across the normal mode.

When this happens, the PC might make a beeping sound when turned on. Use the following steps to check for loose components: WARNING: The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer. CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD).
