System Model: Intel Corporation
Mother Board:: Intel Corporation D865PERL AAC40926-204
512 Megabytes Installed Memory
Video card: RADEON 9000
Monitor: Dell 15.2"
This computer has been stable for over a year.
The computer was used last night and turned off.
This morning the computer started normally. On the monitor the famous Windows banner displayed itself then disappeared. The monitor displayed nothing else.
I shut-down the computer. Turn off the power strip.
Turn on the power strip, monitor and computer the same thing happens.
I can hear the music the XP generates when it nears the end of the booting process so I don't think that it is the computer.
I am going to connect my laptop to the monitor (Dell 15.2") and see what happens.
I do have an older video card if I have to dig deeper. But something tells me that the problem MAY be with the monitor.
Any suggestions and or comments are welcome!
