Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)
How is it going?
I really do hope you can provide me with some insight :)
I used to have a ati 9200se card and my computer worked perfectly for 2 years. 2 weeks ago, I bought a Geforce 6800 xfx (agp) 256mb card.
I installed it; drivers as well. Then connected to my mointor using the dvi to vga adapter. And wow........it worked fine. And it did work fine for 3 days. Then I had to open up my cpu case; remove heatsink; check processor etc.
And now whenever I boot up the computer........its shows the first boot up screen as normal (screen which says 3.00ghz, 1.5gb ram etc etc........select xp or recovery console etc). Then it show the next normal screen........the black screen with XP logo.
THE monitor goes dead. Says "monitor working fine; check your connection cable or computer".
This keeps on happening every single time.
Could you please help me. My email id is:

Re: Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen...
There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some.
1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!)
if not then
2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try
Well if that doesn't work, tell me more!
Re: Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen...
Been following this for a while. seems that this problem stretches across many types of display. I have onchip vid display. have DVI and VGA. VGA (2nd) boots up first then i usually have to hit properties and enable "digital display" instead of "monitor". lately (today) it was just the 2nd monitor. My VGA. I tried disconnecting so that the DVI would boot up, nope. switched my VGA cord to my primary (larger) monitor and DVI to the smaller secondary. works like a charm. I think that if you are trying to run DVI for a higher res monitor the system looks to the VGA? seems to be a common thread since alot of people will want the larger higher res monitor to be the Primary, but probably most drivers will look to VGA on startup.

If you hit <F12> key upon boot-up and the monitor displays a boot menu, then you probably have an issue with your XP software. Meaning that you may have to re-install XP (by the way, XP is no longer supported).
Mostly because of the resolution, 1. startup press F8 >>> 2. select ENABLE VGA MODE 3. Adjust Resolution ( right klik on the middle of the screen > properties > go to the up right corner > settings ) Slide to the LESS Screen Resolution > apply > ok 4.Restart your PC
The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached
Dear i have send some information of your problem. i hope you can read it and solve your windows problem. Thanks. Aman.
ok my situations is
when i turn my pc it goes thru the normal procedure of starting up. all the way till you see the windows xp logo then it just goes away and the monitor is blank (a black screen). i tried the repair and that did not fix the problem. when i try to go open thru safe mode it tells me that windows xp setup cannot run under safemode. setup will restart now. can you help please i don't want to loose all my information on my hard drive so i really do not want to reformat and start all over. thanks
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.
Look the problem it may not your monitor it's your windows XP.
Let me guess you have a VGA/Svideo card. From prior experience I can tell you that dual output Nvidia cards will default to Svideo first, and then "adjust" your windows settings to do so every time even if a VGA monitor is re-connected (HIGHLY ANNOYING).
So if the last thing you see before nothing is the Windows XP boot screen, here's how to fix it.
Boot to safe mode
uninstall your video driver, reboot then reinstall.
You can substitute a system restore for uninstalling your drivers if you can remember when the monitor was last working.
This really really pissed me off when it happened to me.
