I need help. I have a Hp desktop about 5 years old now I have a 17" hp lcd monitor. Well when I boot my computer on the monitor will turn off and on and so quick that i cant even log on. Sometimes I can get it to stay on when I boot it up, but if I restart it after an update or something it will go back to the powering off and on.
I dont know if this is bios related not reading the monitor or something. I have also recently restored it to factory setting (XP home) and put all my old back up files on it. It didnt start having this problem till I moved my computer desk about a month ago. This is mainly a kids computer now I have my laptop but I need to get those files off of it and I need help.
Once I get it on after turning off the computer several times (days usually) It is luck of the draw though. But once I get the monitor to stay on it does till we restart or shut the computer down to cool off. (it gets loud) I just dont know what to do and I dont wanna just trash it till I get my files off of it.
