This is an odd problem, I put in a brand new jump drive into my computer. As soon as I clicked on it in the file manager my monitor went into stanby mode and I heard all of my computer fans increase speed. I removed the jump drive and restarted the computer. Now right as windows finishes loading the monitor goes into standby and I hear the computer fans increase. Everyone once in a while windows will finish loading, and as soon as I click on something, same thing happens. I can get into safe mode with no problems and work in safe mode. I have restored the computer to an earlier date, but that has not fixed it. Any ideas????

That sounds like a hardware issue. When you put the drive in it may have interrupted or destroyed something on your motherboard. Your device may have been faulty when you brought it.

Well I dunno about hardware because safe mode works just fine. I would think if the motherboard had a problem then it would always have a problem

If safe mode works fine, boot into safe mode with command prompt.

Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state from before you tried to install the jump drive.

What make and model of jump drive is it? Is it brand new, or just new to you - perhaps purchased on ebay? Did you have any data on this jump drive at the time you put it in the computer - or was it clean out of the factory box for the first time?

If this is a totally brand new jump drive (i.e. there's no possible chance of it including virus/spyware/corrupted software) and you have anti-virus software which auto-enables itself, you might tyr turning that off and seeing if it works. I sometimes have a problem when I connect my USB drive before booting my computer. I think it may have to do with the anti-virus software attempting to scan the disk.

If your monitor goes into standby when Windows starts and Safe Mode works, I'd guess you've messed up your video card or its drivers somehow. Go into Safe Mode and check the Device Manager to see if the drivers seem to be working properly for starters. (Press Windows Key + Pause Key to open System Properties; Click Hardware tab; Click Device Manager button.)

I can't imagine a jump drive doing so much damage, but I suppose anything's possible. Thing is, when Windows loads up, it loads your video card's drivers and bingo, down she goes. But when going into Safe Mode, you're only using VGA.
