    That is normal; nothing to worry about. The screen goes blank for a few
    moments before everything fully loads, and your monitor's power management
    is just kicking in during that time.

    Hi.

    I have a problem. I installed WinXP over W98, but I can customized, WinXp
    replies me "I have changed your screen resolution..." or something like that,
    I define all about this, I turn off the computer (normally), but when I start
    Up newly (?), I see the screen of WinXP and then the screen go down (with
    blinking lights) and I can put the password (by heart, I can't see anything),
    but the WIN XP is working...but I see nothing...
    Tito

    Somebody can help me.. (sorry for my english...)

    best regards....

    Boot to Safe Mode. Use F8 during boot to get to the advanced start menu and
    select Safe Mode from the list. Change your screen resolution here to
    something that is usable for your display adapter *and* your monitor. Most
    important: click OK. Then restart normally.
