  1. Hello, my PC starts up fine - everything is as it should be, atleast until after the windows bar has done its thing. Then my screen goes completely black. But I hear the Windows welcome tune, I hear people talking to me on msn etc.

    The day before this problem accoured i had a bluescreen right before i went to bed, so I just shut my pc off, couldn't be arsed looking at it then. When I woke up the next day I have a blackscreen, could it be related?

    I noticed there was another thread about it, and it was four pages, and I could not find a real answer to it.

    On the sidenote, i'm not that interested in formatting my pc:)

    Help is appreciated.

    Here are my specs incase they are helpful
    SPECS:
    OS: Windows XP SP2
    CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
    MOBO:ABIT AB9
    GFX:ATI Radeon X1650PRO 256mb
    RAM: 1GB Corsair XMS5400

    I would suggest looking for details in the Event Viewer (Start -> Run -> eventvwr) regarding the blue screen and other related issues. Have you tried going into Safe Mode? If everything works fine there, you probably have a corrupt video driver and should try to reload it.
