can't install win 7 64 bit on my T5400. after the procedure of installing win 7 , the screen goes blank, and starting it up in safe modues doesn't help: the system says: will continue installing it, however, nothing happens it seems. The screen remains bank. I can not hook up another monitor on it since it is dvi only (running two monitors on it). I have the feeling that it has to do with the video card or so.

Okay this is a easy fix

Just connect one cable from monitor to tower. Do not connect two monitors and then reboot the computer. Can also try clean install again.

or

If you can boot in safe mode disable graphics driver and restart the computer in normal mode. Installed updated graphics driver.


After you boot to desktop make sure you install all updates and installed the updated graphics driver.

100% fix

Could you start with the VGA Enabled mode please? This option in the same screen with safe mode.
Other possibility is if you have downloaded Windows 7 as iso image and burned that also may cause problem. To burn MS images you need to use ISO Recorder. Nero or similar programs will not work with the some of MS images.
