Help me (Computer)

Right this one has be stumped.

I uninstalled my display drivers to install new ones then restarted, everything goes fne, bios comes up Win XP loading screen the cue for the logon screen and it never comes it just sits there a bit of HDD activity for 30 seconds or so then stops, with the monitor green light on so its getting something from the computer but aint showing me anything, I dont know wtf is up with it because the other loading screens come up. I've unistalled display drivers restarted and its worked fine before so i dunno wtf is up with this.

Thanks

Re: Help me (Computer)

Load the drivers, press F8 on startup, check the display card settings, maybe refresh rate or resolution has been set too high for yoiur monitor, adjust them, then re-boot should be all good.

Re: Help me (Computer)

The res is 640x480 and the refresh rate is 60Hz, so I dont think the monitor is the problem because i just bring up the monitor settings from the monitor itself.

I dont see how i can unload reload kick it in the arse whatever because i simply cant see anything after windows has finished loading

Have you pressed F8 at the XP screen and gone to safe mode yet.
