    is it your monitor turns off everytime you log on to windows then it start again? (1sec turn-off). if so, it's because inappropriate driver or outdated driver.

    What chips?

    Yes it is compatable.

    Start up in VGA mode, install different drivers.

    I removed the quoted images, no need to quote that crap which essentially duplicates exactly what we didn't want to see in the first place. Please next time just use the Report this post to moderator button at the top right of every post. It is this symbol: [​IMG] - SNGX1275

    Press F8 a few times before the Windows splash screen so you get that boot menu, one of the options is VGA mode.

    Also, if you have a CRT, try either dropping your refresh rate or resolution. Drivers sometimes reset those settings, and then your monitor "saves" itself by blanking the screen. And the initial login screen likely won't be high enough to mess you up.
