    I have a strange problem. When i have my monitor plugged into my pc and i try to boot i get a blue screen right before windows load. When i unplug my monitor, and boot up in to windows, it works fine.....then i plug my monitor in again and i am all set. It only happens when i plug it in and boot up i get blue screens. Also counter-strike crashes says some c++ error. I have a compaq Mv740, geforce 4 mx 400 8x agp, soundblaster audigy 2, windows xp home edition sp1, dont know what motherboard. Can you please help me?

    How about if it is plugged in but not powered up? Have you made a note of the BSOD codes and any drivers mentioned? Did you change your display drivers or anything recently?

    Sounds like the monitor drivers are corrupted or the wrong drivers got installed. Once up and running go to device manager and uninstall the monitor. Reboot and make sure the right drivers get installed. If not sure just install standard VGA drivers until you can get the right ones.
