Please Help. I can't find anything but the problem is bizarre and only occurs when starting up normally. My monitor never goes black in "Safe Mode" and the monitor works perfectly when attached to another computer.

When I start up my computer normally the monitor will be fine for the first 10 minutes or so and then the system starts to freeze temporarily and then right after the monitor will go black for a couple of seconds. The problem becomes increasingly worse over the next 10 minutes when the monitor becomes permanently lost by the computer and I am no longer able to see what my computer is doing until I turn it off and reboot starting the above process all over again.


Here are the specs for my computer:
System
-----------------------------------------------------------

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP
Operating System Version: 5.1
Software Update: Service Pack 2
OS Build: 2600
Total Memory(RAM): 1535.48MB RAM
Available Memory(RAM): 1270.09MB RAM
Processor: AMD Athlon™ XP 2800+
Processor Identifier: x86 Family 6 Model 10 Stepping 0
System Bios Version: Nvidia - 42302e31
Bios Date: 05/20/04
Video Bios Date: 11/17/03
Time Zone: Eastern Daylight Time


Also, a few days ago I ran Malware Bytes and it found a "Services.exe" problem that it eliminated along with some other issues. I've attached that log as well.

Please Help
Phil

Hello ,

I will be working on your malware issues, this may or may not solve other issues you may have with your machine.

  • Please reply using the Add/Reply button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic.
  • The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Unfortunately, if I do not hear back from you within 5 days, I will be forced to close your topic. If you still need help after I have closed your topic, send me or a moderator a personal message with the address of the thread or feel free to create a new one.
