I have no idea what's happened here. When I start my computer, I can watch the whole thing boot up on the monitor... it goes through the BIOS checks, the Windows load screen w/the progress bar, and then right before what would normally be the blue Welcome screen, my display goes blank and eventually my monitor turns off.

Why would windows not be using my display? Any ideas?

By the way, everything works fine if I boot up in safe mode.
