Windows XP Restarts automatically before logon screen comes.

By meetppr ·
I am using a PC with the following configuration.
Asus P5GD1-VM (intel **5 chipset )MotherBoard.
3.0 GHz HyperThreading Techonlogy Processor.
250 GB Sata hard Disk.
512MB RAM.

Now I have no problem with my previous monitor which is LG 15" CRT monitor.

Recently i bought a LG TFT monitor (L1730S) and when i connected to my PC, windows restarts beore the windows logon screen

If i go to the safe mode and disable the Graphics adapter from device manager, then it works fine.

So there is a problem with my monitor and Graphics card. can any one guess the issue.

Can anyone guess the Graphics Card?...

You didn't list the graphics card in your machine spec.

What Graphics Card are you using?

Depending on which card you have, it MAY require its OWN power supply. Is it connected?

Have you checked its seating in its expansion slot?

Is it getting power?

Graphics card was not external.

by meetppr In reply to When was

The graphics card was not an external card.
Its in built with the motherboard.
(Asus P5GD1-VM (intel **5 chipset ).

I had the recent update on the drivers.

I got this problem earlier also, but some how it got resolved with out disabling the graphics adapter.( I dont know how).
But now when i reinstalled the windows, its again giving me the same problem.

Any Help ?

Got it..

by meetppr In reply to Ok a few more steps

Hey i got it myself..

After installing the drivers of the graphics adapter as well as the TFT monitor drivers, i should go to the desktop properties > settings tab. In this window select the new monitor in the drop down box displayed and click apply so that settings get applied then and there.
Now if you restart there is no auto restart problem.
