I have a strange problem that I've not encountered before. Everytime I boot into windows my monitor shuts off onto standby, but the computer carries on, (i can hear the windows startup noise when I blindly login).
I cannot use safemode either for it does the same thing, I can only get on in VGA mode.
Also, I thought it was a virus due to some virus exe's on my startup list. But my virus software stopped working, then every piece of virus software I try to install (mcafee, bitdefender, avgfree) has an error during the install. USually saying 'file X cannot be written, make sure you have access'.
I'm using windows xp pro
Athlon AMD 64
