    Today when I turn on my computer, the load screen came on like normal, then right when it would normally show the first little windows icon, I lost video. My monitor said "no signal". I have had the same working monitor for over a year with no problems. When Id restart the computer, the same thing happened. When I would run it in safe mose, the video would work. Only in safe mode and the lowest reso setting. I tried re installing all my drivers. It did not help. Im running a GeForce 9800 GT, Ive had it for 8 months, no issues.

    To fix it I had to system restore to about a week ago. I have added no new programs in over a month. I have not changed any video settings or drivers recently. I have the latest AVG/Spybot SnD and my system is clean.

    You all got a suggestions for me? I'll post my system below from PC wizard. Thanks!

    try hitting F8 as windows starts to load and selecting VGA mode, then reset your screen resolution and refresh rate to the monitors native res.

    if you have onboard try removing ur 9800 and using the onboard, dose it work?, if so try reinstalling the 9800 and see if the problem returns, if posible try a diferent PCIe VGA card.

    in that case it's either your OS or your Monitor, try another monitor...
