Your log looks to be ok. I think you probably have a short with either your motherboard, monitor, or your video card. Can you hook the computer to a different monitor? If so.... does it work?

Hi John_S...

Something you might try...Go to Windows Update site and choose the "Custom" option. When Update finishes scanning for updates, click on "Hardware" in the left panel. If there are any updates available for NVIDIA...install them.

I did notice that the video drivers listed in the Everest log are a couple of years old and there are newer drivers available. BUT try the Windows Update first and let us know how it goes.

Hi John_S...

What make and model is your Compaq? I'd like to search their site for the correct drivers before I send you to the NVIDIA drivers I found earlier.

What is the version that you have on your computer for your Nvidia Graphic's card?

To find this out:

Right click on a blank area of your desktop (where there is no icons)>Properties.

Display Properties should show up.

Go to:

Settings>Adavnced><card type>. E.g mine is GeForce 4 MX 440

Then where it says: Foreware Version. WHat version does it say?
