I have two computers and two monitors. Both were working fine yesterday. One of them plugs into the blue VGA slot. The other uses the white DVI slot.
Yesterday I decided to switch the monitors. Put the bigger one on my better computer. Plugged it into the computer that uses the DVI slot. Plugged the smaller monitor into the computer that uses the VGA slot.
Now when I boot up the computer that has the VGA slot. It gets to the Windows XP loading screen just fine, but as soon as it gets to the user log in interface my monitor goes into "Power save mode."
I tried switching the monitors back to how they were. Same issue.
I tried starting in Safe Mode and it works. Everything is fine. I even changed display settings in safe mode. But as soon as I restart normally... same issue.
I tried starting with "Enable VGA" and it works as well. It's choppy, but it works.
So... it's a problem with my computer, because it does it on both monitors, yet my computer isn't fried obviously because it can display in safe mode. What's going on?
