  1. Well, it was all working fine, up until 20 minutes ago, i decided to install a graphics driver update from nvidia, the.. august 21th one, think its something like 190.x.x, anyway..

    After i installed it, i restarted my computer, when it gets to the welcome screen, were i usually enter my password, the monitor turns off, or goes on standby, the power button on the monitor goes from green to orange? ._.

    My graphics card is a 9600 GT Geforce.

    oh, and im running on my XP partition, my monitor works fine on my vista partition.

    How old is the monitor/screen... and the brand.
    That is typical of monitor failure on some brands of monitors...

    The monitor is around 1 year old, and its Advent, but i fixed it now.

    It was caused due to the new graphics driver, it seemed to not support my monitor or something, and i couldn't figure out how to boot up in safe mode, but i asked a friend and he set me right, its working now, did a system restore in safe mode. o:

    Thanks anyway!
