    when i am loading windows the screen goes off and ona few times, i thought it was nothing but it is now something, it shows the dos and the windows loading symbole but when it is in that part where it does the scan disk and stuff it does not turn on the screen, there is nothing comming out of the card. i have the latest drivers from nvidia and i dont know why it is doing this, anyone got any ideas?

    Maybe your refresh rate?
    Have you tried to boot into safe mode?

    Was it working before? Did it change after you updated drivers or anything?

    It sounds like you have the resolution in windows set to HIGH for the monitor to support! Try whacking it down to 800x600 and see if it works, go into safe mode (F8 at first windows xp boot up stage).

    it boots into safe fine but if i stay at like 800/600 the icons are about the size of my thumb
