Question: How can I reactivate my monitor without reformatting the hard drive?

 

This is what happened:

 

Two monitors were hooked to my computer, (Dell Inspiration), and I had to reduce it into one monitor.

 

 

I opened: screen resolution

 

Clicked on: Advanced settings

 

Clicked on: Monitor

 

Clicked on: Driver

 

Clicked on: Disable

 

 

After I did that, one monitor became completely dark, and the second monitor display was if it would run in safe mode, (graphic quality was so bad, it hurt to my eyes to watch it).  I checked the device list and both monitor was removed from the list, there were no monitor listed anymore (before they were there).

 

I tried the system restore, but after the system restore finished, there were no more connection with the monitor.

 

When I start the computer, the monitor works for few seconds, shows the start up process, and right after the windows logo displayed, it shuts off.  I tried to reboot in "safe mode", and it starts up as usual, (the monitor works), but before it reaches the desktop screen, it shuts off.

 

 

 

Windows version is: Windows 7

 

Computer: DELL Inspiration 546s

 

Operating System: 64-bit

 

Processor: AMD

 

 

Thank you in advance for your help

Hello repulo,

 

Two monitors were hooked to my computer, (Dell Inspiration), and I had to reduce it into one monitor.

 

 

Can I ask why you had to reduce it to one monitor as in were you already having display problems.

I opened: screen resolution
 
Clicked on: Advanced settings
 
Clicked on: Monitor
 
Clicked on: Driver
 
Clicked on: Disable

 

 

For future reference, you should not have disabled the driver to disable any second screen, I will explain more once we have resolved this issue.

 

Couple of questions if Imay;

 

Have you completely disconnected the second monitor from the computer.

 

Is the screen that you are still using connected to the blue VGA port on the back of the computer.

"Why I reduce it to one monitor?"

I got a new computer, and I still use the old one, without internet, and the new one for the internet.  So, it will speed up my computer which is without internet.

 

Finaly I got it to work, this is what I did:

I started the computer with the F8 tapping, and at this time I choose the repair mode, I and used the system restore.

Have a wonderful night!
