This has just started quite recently, whenever i turn on my computer it will start normally, but right after the xp loading screen, instead of showing the different user accounts the screen turns black. The Light on my monitor is still green, but the lights on my mouse turn off. My monitor is plugged into my computer through a dvi cable, and i have checked that its not loose on both ends. My graphics card/ram seem to be seated correctly, and the fan on my graphics card spins.
The first time this happened even though i kept restarting my computer took me to the loading screen but it looked like it was in safe mode (but not), my background was still there, just everything was Huge, and the colors were all washed out and pixelated. The computer wouldnt let me turn my resolution or color up. I reinstalled the drivers and the problem stopped, but the screen turning black still happens now.
Is this a hardware problem? Could it be a virus?
thanks in advance
