XP workstation screen goes black after login as desktop loads
Posted on 2010-01-07
We have an XP Pro workstation which has a problem with the screen going black after login, as the desktop loads. The PC is still active, and we can eject the CD drawer.
When we start in safe mode with networking, the workstation operates perfectly.
We have used MSCONFIG to dissable all but Microsoft items, but the problem remains.
If we leave it at the Ctr-Alt-Del logon box, it stays on constantly.
I have removed the video driver, and restarted, but although it seems to stay on a little longer (may have been just a coincidence) the same problem happens.
We are using AVG v8.5 and have fully updated signatures, but a scan shows nothing.
Does anyone have any good ideas, as it is driving me mad!
