Having problems with your Apple Computer Servers ?

The screen turns black and stays like that

\015 When the computer boots the loading Progress Bar Of Windows XP is displayed but as soon as the computer goes into Windows XP the screen turns black and stays like that\015\012I am wondering what might be wrong?\015

Answers :

Normally it's because the resolution is set too high for the monitor. This has happened to me when I switch a computer from a flat screen to a old "biggy-size" monitor.

try rebooting the computer and BEFORE you see the windows splash screen, start pushing the F8 key...this should bring up a menu...select VGA Mode...it won't be pretty, but once you're in..right click on the desktop and change the solution (try 800x600). restart the machine...that should work.
