Freezing on startup

June 23, 2010 at 19:18:45
Specs: Windows XP
I installed drivers for a Samsung LCD monitor and restated like it said, and now it makes it to my desk top and freezes. I have unpluged from the wall, removed and switch the RAM and nothing has worked.

Comp. - Cisnet
Proc. - 3.1 GHz
RAM - 2 GHz

What else can I do besides throwing against the wall...???

Monitors generally don't need drivers. Other than that, you didn't provide enough info.

I'm not to sure how much more info you could use, or that I can give you. I installed the drivers because my sys. is about 4 years old and everything was stretched on the monitor. After installing it freezes, and I can't uninstall. Cisnet has a reboot recovery, that willreturn everything to factory settings and not harm your files. Is that something I should look at?

"I'm not to sure how much more info you could use"

You didn't provide the monitor model number or size...Samsung makes dozens of different monitors. Is it a widescreen? Is it a new monitor? If it's new, what type had you been using? CRT/tube type?

3.1GHz processor? There are plenty of them, is it an Intel or AMD?

Motherboard make/model?

Graphics card or integrated video?

Like I said, monitors generally don't need drivers. More than likely, you either needed to upgrade your graphics drivers or just change the screen resolution. You also have to make sure the refresh rate is set should probably be set to 60Hz. Try booting into safe mode & uninstall the monitor driver. If you have to, use System Restore.

Sorry, didn't realize that was important.
Mon. - Samsung p2370 widescreen (was using Hansol 19" CRT)
Pentium 4 proc.
Motherboard - MSI microstar 7103
Integrated video

What function key was for choosing safe startup again?
F10 does the Cisnet recovery that will set it back to factory settings without deleting files (or it can recover with a format if I want, but I don't want that).

If the picture did not fit the screen correctly then you probably need to install Graphics drivers.

The native resolution of your display is 1920 x 1080.

If that resolution setting is not available you will need to update your graphics drivers.
