  1. where is the moderator or ppl that replies??

    I'm using ATI x300 video card. It was okay before I reformat my computer with another version of Windows XP SP2. At first, it started with hanging in the black screen when I quitted a game. Then it get worse with hanging when loading the windows. It came out with the word "Not optimum mode". But I did tune it to optimum mode. Then I need to plug out the vga cable from the display card, turn off the power for the monitor, then restart the compupter, then after it loaded the windows, then turn on the monitor again. My monitor is Samsung N LCD. I consulted my friend, and he said that maybe it is the windows version that crash with the vga driver. But I tried another version of windows and newer vga driver, it is still the same. HELP>>>>

    Thank you.

    After you had reformated and reinstalled Windows, did you install your chipset drivers and your graphics card drivers?

    All I can suggest is you uninstall your graphics card drivers, then reboot your computer. Turn off any antivirus programme you are running and reinstall your graphics card drivers. Turn your antivirus programme back on.

    If that doesn`t help, maybe some of our other members will have other ideas.

    Regards Howard :)
