|After a recent crash, and successful reinstall of windows xp, I now get a blank white screen at startup on my desktop. I hear the proper beeps, and it seems to load the OS, but I cannot see anything.|
I have tried everything, and I had not yet gone online with PC for updates, but it worked fine until I shut down, unplugged, and moved upstairs. I have checked to make sure all memory and other items are seated properly, and they seem to be. I can't even over-ride it with a bootable cd. I tried both the onboard video card, and the GeForce 9400 GT --unninstalling the GT to test original: same result. I have tried f8 at startup, and jjust about everything short of kicking the machine itself.
Any thoughts other than "go buy a new one" would be appreciated. (Lack of funding rules that out. As it does for "take it to Geek Squad, the insanely high priced fixit guys).
I did post this in a separate thread, but your first answer was spot-on, so I am just sending this copy to you. Thank you so much.
