Black screen after "windows is starting up"
Posted on 2008-02-07
I was using my pc yesterday then all of the sudden the screen goes black. The monitor light stays green.
When I boot up, I see the bios page, the winxp logo when loading, then when it loads XP I see the "Windows is starting up" box for 1 second and then the screen turns black. I can still logon to windows without seeing anything though. The monitor light is still on and green.
If I press F8 to go into safe mode at startup, I see the boot options for just one second and then the screen turns black.
I can access the pc through remote desktop, logon and use it from another pc. (I'm on remote desktop on the nonworking pc right now).
I have mcafee antivirus installed with all the updates, and didn't open anything when it happened, I was just working on remote to another pc.
I removed the video card drivers and reinstalled it, but no luck.
