My system was working fine and all. I come back to it and it loads up, but right after the windows xp loading screen the connection from the pc to the monitor cuts off. I am not sure. The pc is still running and everything. The parts are a little old but were working fine.


Kingston HyperX 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model KHX3200A/512 - X 2

AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton 1.833GHz Socket A Processor Model

ABIT NF7-S V2 A (462) NVIDIA nForce2 SPP ATX AMD Motherboard

40gb IDE drive

Pioneer 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model DVR-115DBK

and a 300w antec powersupply. - i have tried a 550w antec neopower that powers another system of mine that is much more powerful than this one and still it doesn't work.

What is your monitor? Looks like to me that it's a resolution/freq settings issue in CRT. If you're running LCD I don't think you will encounter this. Try swap your monitor . .

Or load into the safe mode (F8) .. And check if you can load into windows, lower your resolutions ..

It could be that it's a VGA driver issue as well. While you're on the safe mode, uninstall the current driver, and reinstall it ...

Hope it help ...

Cheers ^^
