    first of all i have to say that, i'm complete dumb *** with computers. so try and understand, ok good thanks
    couple of days ago i bought a scanner and started to install the drivers for it. everything went fine untill the install-program asked if i'd like to start my computer again. i chose no because i had more of software to install: my monitor went to power save mode and wouldn't come alive. i thought ok and snapped the power off from monitor and computer. started them again, got to windows and started the installing again. this time when it asked will you restart now or later, i chose now. install softwares own restart-program started and it got out of windows, monitor went to power save mode but... computer did not start again. monitor stayed in power save mode and computer had power on.
    please help me, what the____ should i do?

    editted out the four letter word, please refrain from using, it is against the board rules.

    Your going to have to try booting up in safe mode, press F8 just after the memory count and choose safe mode. Once in windows uninstall the offending software.

    That is of course you can see the monitor while booting.

    Other thing would be to reset cmos by removing the battery for awhile, you would have to reconfigure your hard disks in setup afterware unless there set to auto detect.
