My screen goes black a few moments after the windows log in process begins. At first this happened a few times after the computer had been booted up for a while; the screen would just go black. Now it's happening every time I try to boot up. I can only use the computer in safe mode.
While trying to problem solve I pulled out the monitor cable and reinserted it to get a blue screen with the ati2dvag rave. This was the only time I have got this message so wondering if it is not the actual problem but more a result of pulling out the monitor cable while the machine was on?
In any case I googled "atidvag" and from a number of solutions decided to unistall then reinstall the ati driver from the CD. This seemed to work - the computer was usable in normal mode. However today on booting up the black screen was back.
I'm running xp. My graphics card is a 9200 series Raedon.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
