    Display goes black right after windows splash screen.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi I have a Gateway PIII running Windows XP Pro. Last weekend I was setting up a home network and now when I turn it on the display goes black just after the windows splash screen disappears. Does anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Your going to have to go into more detail than what your sharing right now. Is your computer booting up even though the screen is black. Can you tell if the hdd is running, cpu working, fans, etc., are all running, or does the machine die at the splash screen? Let us know....Jazz

    Just to confirm; tapping the F8 function key during bootup has no affect? How is the keyboard connected to the computer?
