    It would help to know OS=Operating System & pc specs. Have you gone into the Control panel>Power options to see what the monitor setting are set to?

    tnx for the quick respomse.

    im using windows xp. im using 2g ram and an ati video card. i think its 521mb. i think my driver installer is ok because i used to install using that ever since. last night, i was able to boot not in normal but in "enable vga mode". its better than in safe mode cause i was able to install microsoft word, vb.net etc. the problem is im still not booting it in normal and it shuts down when i change resolution. thanks
