Hello, i'm running Windows XP Professional SP3 with a NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX video card and i've got the latest drivers installed. Ok here's the problem:
Yesterday night, when i turned off my computer, i had also unhooked the VGA cord from my monitor for various reasons. Then, this morning, i went to plug it in and boot up my machine and here's what happens. I boot up my machine, it gets by the POST fine and then i see the loading Windows XP screen. However whenever the graphic GUI starts loading, my monitor goes to sleep. I tried booting in VGA mode but the thing i found odd was that my NVIDIA Control Panel was gone and i was automatically set to the lowest resolution so i tried a higher resolution and my monitor went to sleep again. I figure really the reason that my monitor goes to sleep after the Windows XP loading screen is because it's getting set to a high resolution and for some reason goes to sleep. If anyone knows what's up please let me know.
