yesterday I disconnected my LG monitor for some reason from my computer. Afterwards I put my computer on again but forgot to plug the monitor in again, so I did it while the computer was on. I got no display on my screen so I rebooted.
I got the normal Windows XP starting screen, with the flag and the "tube" that fills while starting up.
Next thing that happened was the message "Analog power saving mode" - and the screen got black. I heard the opening tune from Windows so my OS was still running... The power light from my monitor went from blue to orange/yellow.
The only strange thing I can think about is that I put the wire in the monitor while the computer was already running.
I rebooted at least 10 times but I always got the "analog power saving mode" message followed by a black/dead screen.
In the meanwhile I checked everything, the wires, contacts,... I connected the screen on my friends laptop and that worked, so the screen is not broken and the wires are not harmed.
After googeling the problem, I got not really further cause I found solutions about messing in the control panel, but since the screen is not working, I cannot change settings.
Maybe I need to update drivers from my videocard, but I have no vision so I canīt.
Then I tried to boot from a cd that has to do with the vga settings, but i can not boot from the cd because i still donīt get a screen. I tried to startup in safe mode but that doesnīt work either. I push the F8 button while starting up, but then I can only choose the boot sequence.
I would be extremely happy with some helping hints. If I need to give more information, please tell me.
Thanks in advance!
