I was using my pc for 1 years withou any problem, I was watching a DVD when the PC freezed up. When I reboot (winxp sp2) the windows splash screen appear then the screen come black. I know the boot up sequence continue correctly because I hear normal sounds.
I tried to use the windows repair without success. I reinstall the whole thing, I was back on track but after installing SP2, my router, my modem and a couple of other things, I had to reboot a couple of time, and after 4-5 reboots, same problem.... grrrrrrrr
If I boot in VGA mode, everything's fine until I go to control panel and change a setting. If I change 640X480 to a cheap 800X600 or from 8 to 16 bits or even when I change the refresh rate from 30 to 60 hz, to screen come black and the power lignt on the screen come orange which mean that the monitor no longer receive a signal from the PC.
I use and old Dell 19 inch 1226H screen with an ATI radeon 9600. I use the default 9600 driver provided by windows. I use no specific driver for the monitor (windows generic monitor).
any idea ?
