Hey! Happy to be back here with another computer problem!

I moved my computer and now i need to reconnect my monitor, when i put it into the PNY Tech Verto GeForce 128mb slot. I start up the computer and the boot up looks good but right after the Win XP startup screen (right before the log on screen) the mointor clicks of, then shows me the OSD and the color goes to the orange standby color.

Any ideas of whats wrong and how to fix it?

Also i am righting this while in safe mode, so safe mode works just fine.

Thanks in advanced, Tyler!

Boot the XP startup menu by tapping F8 on startup.
When the boot menu appears select Last Known Good Configuration.
See if that takes care of it.

If that doesnt work reseat all the cards in the system.
You said you moved it. How far?
Maybe a card is just loose enough to be flaky.
In the beginning there was the command line.

And you may have lost your video driver(s). While in Safe Mode, can you try to reset the resolution in your Display Properties to 640 x 480 x 16 colors, then restart normally? That's standard VGA and there's a chance you can then load the drivers.

I got it to work by going into the device manager and downloaded the new drivers, everything is working fine now!

Thanks guys
