Black screen before the log on screen (Vista)
Posted on 2008-10-07
I have been having this problem for several months and would like to get your thoughts on the situation.
The computer I have been using is having trouble using the nVidia Graphics driver (nVidia GeForce 8400 GS) suggested by windows update. I am unsure of the graphics card as there is no sticker on the box and I don't want to look inside as the computer is not mine(I don' want to break it more to be honest.)
The issue is that when windows has updated, including the graphics driver, the PC boots up great but just before it gets to the logon screen it just goes black. However when booting into safe mode it boots up ok and can actually log on. I have tried updating just with this one driver and still an issue. Which is what has led me to believe the issue is with the graphics driver
The operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium sp1.
I hope you can help me!
Thanks in advance
