Same-o same-o I uninstalled the previous video drivers, booted down, replaced the video with Geforce 9400GT and a new 430 Watt PS.

On boot-up, the WIndows logo screen comes up, but then all is black. It appears to still be running b/c the HD is still merrily chirping away, but no video display.

Rebooted in safe mode and the VGA mode comes on and works. Installed the 9400GT drivers while in safe mode, then rebooted. Still get black screen after the Windows color logo goes away.

The only way I can function is in safe mode. CP/System/Video seems to be happy with the drivers installed OK. Seems to be enabled.

Hello again!
Well, this issue was self-healing, I guess. Fourth time's the charm.
Booting up in (F8) VGA mode and reinstalling the drivers a third time seems to have done the trick. Computers....!
