Specs: Windows XP
I was just playing around with different screens conecting to the computer now when it turns on the screen will display everything up until the end of the windows screen then it goes black. The computer also has no F8 option to get into safe mode.

Sounds like the video is out of range. When you first turn the computer on, you begin tapping the F8 key, I have never seen a computer that did not have one except maybe 20 yrs ago....explain no F8? You can try the "auto" tune on the monitor if you have one, but more than likely you need to boot into safe mode and change the display adapter settings to something like 1024X768 in High bit 32.

i agree that the resolution is not being displayed by the screen after windows loads, but what i mean by no F8 option is that there is no safe mode option at all making it impossible to change the settings back
