I got a new desk for my computer, so I transfered all my comp stuff into my new desk. Everything was working fine before. I turned it on and it worked great except i needed ajust some cords, so i unplugged everything and rearranged them. After plugging everything back in i turned my computer back on. I got the usual black loading bios screen with white writing. After it goes to the loading windows XP screen (right before one logs on to their XP account my monitor clicks off (as if it were on standby) and displays "DMPS OFF MODE" for a brief while then vanishs. I rebooted in safe mode and i can logon to my XP account and access my desktop. I changed my desktop to blank and my resolution to 800x680 or something like that (i had a problem with that in the past). I then rebooted my computer again and no luck. Anyone able to help me with this problem? I need to access my computer for college.

Thanks in Advance

You are probably on the right track, particularly since monitor worked in safe mode. Go back into settings and lower refresh rate and see if that solves the problem.

A link about DPMS:

I'd suggest trying to update your video drivers in Safe Mode. That may work.

And, just to inject a bit of humor here - here's my Monitor Troubleshooting Guide:

1) Smack monitor
2) Wiggle the cords
3) Curse at monitor
4) Go get a beer :thumbsup:

ok, i booted my comp up again and it wouldnt load it all. It was stuck at the windows XP screen. Did sonme research, figured out that it was stuck on agp440. A driver was corrupt. I followed this http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;324764 but it doesnt come up with a number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair and jsut a blank command promt... ill do some more research.

Should not be a hardware issue, more to connectivity OR driver issue...... :thumbsup:

Try a restore date that existed before the problem began happening.

If that doesn't work, open your device manager and see if there are any warning flags, especially in the display adapter area.

You can update your video/graphics driver from there.

you can close this topic. I can see everything now. It was a agp440 problem. Please refer to my " Stuck At Xp Loading Screen!"

Thanks!
