XP stops after loading screen

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.

  1. 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 ^^
  2. Its an LCD, but i can try loading it into safemode and see where than goes.
  3. could be a temperature issue as well
