  1. Ok, so I have a 32 inch Panasonic TV, it has a port on the back for a PC, I had my computer plugged into my TV and it all worked fine for about a month, then the other day I was changing the resolution or something and it just went to a black screen, so I plugged it back into my monitor and it worked fine, I changed the resolution back, then plugged it back into my TV and still a black screen.. It works fine when starting it up, it has the Vista loading screen, but then when it gets to the desktop it's just black... Safe mode works.. Any solutions?
    Thanks in advance

    Do you still have it set to extend your desktop onto the secondary display?

    I don't have it plugged into my monitor and TV at the same time..

    Ah, I was assuming that it is a laptop which seems not to be the case.

    hm ... Now I am stumped too. lol

    In the past it helped me to set the resolution to the absolute minimum possible setting. It may be working in Safe Mode because it limits the maximum resolution by quite a bit. Do you have another user account you could log onto to test it?
