I have the following problem: I had an old desktop from 2008 running vista. It was working amazingly well throughout the years but recently I thought about bringing it to my folks without my good screen. As soon as I got here I tried to connect it to their brand new TV-monitor but it failed. It goes like this. While the computer starts booting the monitor works. Then, after it tries to boot windows it stops working. Black. No signal. I know the computer has booted but I cannot see anything. If I restart it and go into safe mode the monitor works as it is supposed to.
After doing lots of search on line I understood that the pc opens in safe mode using a seperate graphics card, is that so? It gives a poor vga quality signal. My graphics is part of the motherboard so it cannot be that there are problems with that connection. What's left? That the graphics card is burnt or broken during the trip?
Could it be something else?
Is there a way to make the computer always work on the vga so that I don't have to search for a new graphics card, motherboard etc since it makes no sense for a computer that's going to be used just to check the weather (honestly!)?
Thank you everyone for sparing your time reading all this.
