I've seen a lot of threads about something like this, but not this. I've got an PC that runs either Linux or XP. Right now it defaults to xp. It was running fine until I did the last windows update. Upon restart it loaded a white screen instead of the regular desktop. Up until that point everything looked normal on startup, WinXP Splash screen, etc.
Now here is where my problem is different from most. I don't even see the cursor. I can use keyboard commands to shut down and/or restart, I even used keyboard commands to roll back to another day, but that doesn't help.
And now for the really weird part. This computer is running fine. I can go home and use Team Viewer to connect and operate the computer and everything is running fine.
If I boot to Linux (Ubuntu) then the monitor works fine, so it's not the monitor.
I've tried disconnecting the two usb accessories, a wifi antenna and a camera feed. No difference.
So, apart from reformatting the entire computer and starting from scratch, any ideas? Thanks so much
