At the beginning; After the Windows Logo at the start, the screen goes black and a POWER SAVE MODE comes up. I must stop button. I can run the computer as I am now in Mode safe mode with networking.

When I turn on the computer of gateway, the machine starts and the initial window logo starts and runs for about five seconds.  Then the screen goes black instead of blue and stays black for about 10 seconds.  A 'Power SAVE MODE' appears.  The machine is dead to all orders.  I have to stop by pressing the off button.  I can turn back and the F10 key to get in Mode safe mode with networking.

I tried to reinstall Windows XP original but it would erase my files.  I tried to restore the last good configuration also knowledge.  That did not work.

The change came after a Windsows update.  I have McAfee security and I asked Windows but could not use due ot a conflict. -C' is all this bad start.  Clues?  I use Negear.  No change when I hooked directly either.

Botton line, I can run in SafeMode with networking; but it is slow and I can't make alll I have to do.  What does not load Windows?

    You can access Mode safe? Repeatedly press F8 as you start? If yes you can try Control Panel - device
    Manager - graphics card - Double click on - driver tab - click on UPDATE driver - then right click
    on devices and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.

    Another method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure)
    CTRL + ALT + DELETE and on the tab process EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - then
    on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is reached
    by tapping F8 as you start several times.

    Change the screen resolution

    Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They appear also smaller, so more items adapted to the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items adapted to the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images may have serrated edges.

    See you soon.

  • Screen goes black and only the mouse pointer visible to the windows xp screen

    My computer has used to work without problems.  Now, when I start it upward, to the Windows XP start screen, the screen turns off and all that is visible is the mouse pointer.  I tried to start safe mode, and it does give me even the option - not even if I press F8 at startup upward.  What is the problem with my computer and what can do?

    Thanks for your answers, Dena and Jojih.

    The screen went black and all I could see was the mouse pointer.  There is no ameioration or changes on the hardware of all kinds.  I wonder if one of my employees has a virus on the computer.  I could not do in safe mode, even if I tried to press F8.  If I put in the Windows XP CD, the screen would go black after that he loaded the system files, just like at the start of Windows XP.  So I used Acronis PC Backup and Recovery and make a recovery disc and used to reformat the hard drive and then I reinstalled Windows XP.  Everything has been great to work for.

    Does not need to update the Nvidia driver because it is up to date and could not update the Viewsonic that Windows only recognizes as "PnP monitor" generic monitor, even if it is described as Viewsonic in the Nvidia Control Panel. Did restore the default values in the video section of the Nvidia Control Panel, and that seems to have solved the problem.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Install these updates of 2 drivers and then restart the pc and try again see if the problem occurs.

    Another thing that I recommend is trying to reset your settings to default monitor by pressing the MENU button and finding the option defauult of zero/factory reset.

    You can also restore the default settings in the Nvidia Control Panel by clicking on restore by default in most sections.
