    I need to know how to go in to windows 2000XP and turn the vga monitor back on I went in it and turn it off lokking for the TVout which I never found for I could not play protected DVD,s it would say it cannot play it with the tv out open and I went in and turned off the vga thinking that might be it and the screen goes to black after I boot up and I cannot see how to go back in and turn it on again, I don,t see how they could may a program that would turn off monitor and you can not see anything or how to go to system restore which would fix it? Is ther another way to hookup a monitor so I can see how to go fix it? thanks for any input? I do not want to reformat my hard drive either, and don,t have the windows disc either that comes witht the machine, but do have others for other machines. Dogwood

      Haven’t done it on a laptop and I bet those electronics are REAL fragile, but if you have to, find the backup battery and remove it, or as a last resort if you can’t remove it, short it out. Don’t say you heard it here. I hope someones got a less dangerous solution.

      Use Safe Mode

      Turn the PC off, then restart it. As soon as the POST completes, press and hold . You will see a menu that offers various ways to start WinXP. Select Safe Mode and when it finishes booting, you should have video and be able to turn the vga monirot back on.

        I have tried it and when I hit enter in safe mode it just sits and don,t do anything. and I have went down to where it says enable vga mode and I treid that about 10 times and it still does the same thing bootup and goes black, If iI could get to system restore maybe that would work but cannot shut down like normal when I cannot see what to do so I have to cut power off and then it run the scan and I cannot see what to do.

          You may have removed your display adapter

          Boot back into safe mode and try reloading the drivers.
