    Try it in safemode

    How to Start in Safemode

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. Before the windows logo you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
    3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
    5. Do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode..

    So your saying reboot in safe mode, with it hook to the svideo out? then do what it says than restart?

    With the s video it shows the screen, but it says it has a problem then ask if i want to do a system restore, but im just wondering if it has a recovery partion that i can just do a fresh install? And maybe fix the monitor problem?
