can you boot into safe mode?

While starting your computer tap the F8 key once every second during the memory count up, or during the system spash screen where you see the system maker's name (HP, COMPAQ, DELL....etc.)

This will result in a text based menu. Use the curors/arrorw keys to navigate to SAFE MODE and hit enter.

Does the problem recur in safe mode?

if y ou can boot into safe mode try updating the video drivers

Many newer moniters won't support the old VGA mode and that is probably what you're getting if you don't have the display adapter drivers installed. Go to Device manager and looks at display adapter. If it says "standard VGA" or a yellow question mark, you need to install the drivers. You can use another monitor to do that.
