i've fittled with this problem off and on for months, i just want to be finished. i've figured out several symptoms to my problem. initially all i would get is blank screen after windows loaded...but i knew it loaded properly because i could hear it. so i would go into safe mode and try downloading older drivers, didnt work. adventually i got it to work, to this day im not sure what did it. then randomly the problem persisted, i took it to get repaired, but resolution was bad, i figured out that updating my computers rating with "windows experience index" fixed that. now, 2 weeks ago the problem started again so i figured out that, my moniter will show visual if either my graphix driver is disabled, or its enabled and the moniter isnt being properly detected. with the graphix driver enabled, i attempted to download a driver from the cd, it told me it couldnt detect my moniter, and it gave me instructions to do it manually, i tried and failed. i've fixed this problem twice, and it randomly came back up. i have 2 anti viruses, and a regestration cleaner, so i doubt its a virus. if anybody has any ideas what so ever, plz let me know.
