I seem to be a bit of a regular here with these problems I keep getting in 2008! All have been sorted by Bleeping.

I had an intermmittent problem restarting when shutting down. I thought I had fixed it (via bleeping help) by uninstallling avast and reinstalling, and doing a chckdisc.

Now it has happened again, and the only error in the event manager is 'event 45062 ati2mtag CRT invalid display type'

I did notice in Windows Update the other day, an update for my Radeon 9600 ATI - which I downloaded and it installed.
If that is the problem, how do I uninstall that update? Im clutching at straws because it may have nothing to do with that.

Any suggestions?

Try reinstalling your video driver.

Update Those Drivers - http://www.cyberwalker.net/columns/aug00/310800.html

I have two ATI older (AIW 7500 and AIW 9600) cards and I find that the new drivers can be quirky. I only use the drivers which originally came with my cards and those seem to present the fewest problems.

I also find that...when the ATI drivers/software screw up, it's just best to uninstall everything that says ATI (files and registry) and then do a fresh install of the card, software, and drivers from the original CD.

Appears to be pertinent: http://support.ati.com/ics/support/default...uestionID=29385

I have looked into Devise Manager at the adapters and it is the Radeon 9600 Pro Sec Family. However, there was a red cross on the monitor icon. I looked in properties and it said it wasnt working properly. I looked to update it (dont know how) and it did.
It now says its working properly and the red cross has gone. But will this happen again if I have the computer reboot instead of shutting down? or do you think that the problem is cleared?

This will happen again if the file for your monitor gets corrupt, but you should be good. I was going to suggest looking for a MONITOR driver, as the video driver seems fine, but you seem to have taken care of it.

I cannot say if it will happen again.

I do know that my AIW 9600 card repeatedly "loses" its WDM capture driver...and I have to reinstall it in order to have my card work correctly. I don't know why or how the driver disappears...I only know that there are times that the card cannot detect it and utilize it.

I've never really seen a problem with a monitor, other than one which has outlived its usefulness and slowly fades away.
