Hi,

I just turned on my computer and it seems yo start up normally until the part where is loads all the icons and the computer screen goes into "power saving mode" its an lg flatscreen.

But when I reboot the computer in safe mode the monitor and programs work.

Your help would be appreciated.

I would recommend a complete virus scan/spy ware scan in safe mode, then load up computer normally if problem persist then come back here.

Also in safe mode do the following

start > control panel > power options > turn off monitor (on drop downlist select Never)


this may help

Re-install the video adapter drivers, use Everest Home if you do not know which one is installed. You may find more recent drivers on the manufacturer's site

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything
