Pc stays blank/black until windows startup

Specs: Windows XP
My problem is similar to HunterJames22 except I am running Win2k and using an industrial Rocky 3782ev single board pc motherboard. I've tried to reset the bios by the jumper, removing the battery and by removing the bios chip..no go.

Jeez, at least provide a link to the posting by this 'HunterJames22' so we know what you're talking about.

But, in general, if your monitor screen is black and its LED stays orange instead of green until the OS loads then the video controller isn't supporting 640 x 480 as that's the resolution of the posting screen.

I picked up an old P-III awhile back and finally got around to starting it up. Same thing--no video until XP loads. I'm confident another video card will solve that.

You're not really green until you're soylent green.
