I just bought a new mouse and monitor, I plugged them in and they worked fine. I had to restart the p.c. for the mouse "so these changes to take effect" so I did. I turned it back on, the p.c. loaded fine, the XP blue load bars loaded up fine, the XP tune played. But the desktop is blank! Its just black, nothing on it! I spent loads of money for it to realise it suddenly dosen't work! And I'm pretty sure it has no viruses. Help will be appreciated! Thanks! :) :tazz:

THe obvious answer is to check all the connections.

When the pc boots, do you see any kind of splash screen with the PC maker name? How about memory count up?

I see the p.c. load up at the start up to when the big XP logo with the blue loading bars under, then it logs on, I can hear the XP tune play but it's just a black screen. If I need to plug something in what would it be?

Dishy, I see this is the third post you;ve created on this topic

Please do not do that, as it creates more work and means fewer people can get help.

Please return to the original post
