Okay, i followed the steps in that topic and have posted logs in my other thread, but they seem to be busy over there and i don't think they will be seen for a few days.
But, the anti-malware tools did show that no infections were found, but like i said, this moniter will only display what the computer is telling it to in safe mode, and i'm not sure if this will have affected the scans or not.
Just out of interest, have you worked with similar problems before? (with ATI Radeon graphics cards + LCD moniters), and has that download you provided from AMD solved the problem in those cases? (In other words, would that download just magically add the option of 1440x900 for me?)
Because it seems like the only problem i'm having (in terms of display) is that the computer hasn't set itself to a default 1440x900 or something, and then the moniter is reacting by just displaying the white box, preventing me from being able to see anything and be able to sign in/use the computer.
I have a CRT moniter in the house for the old family computer, would it be worth trying to start up the computer using that? - To see if it has a 1440x900 resolution setting or maybe to see if the driver even installed properly. It could just be that this moniter that i'm using isn't great for use with PC's (being a TV rather than a dedicated computer moniter).
But obviously, you're the pro's
I'm just writing down my most likely unhelpful thoughts...
Thanks again, i really appreciate this.
