 no red or green output - monitor works fine Post a Reply

I managed to give my gateway a minor static bump. Now I only have blue, no red or green output. I know it's not the monitor because the NO SIGNAL message as it reboots gives the RGB box correctly.

I am on the same computer that's hosed. The system boots OK. It's just blue. Safe mode boots OK. But if I go into boot logger and try to boot the Windows Media Edition and not the "Windows(default)" I get the error message, "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt-
Windows root>\system32\hal.dll
Hitting Enter at that point reboots.
I recently replaced the hal.dll file and nothing changed. still get the above message.

Tried a system recovery to before the time of the static but it did nothing

Boot logger and selecting the "Windows(defualt)", system boots ok.
So I don't know what is happening. The Gateway is a bundeled Windows Media Center Edition. XP SP2 with all updates.

have you tried on another computer? reinstall the video card drivers? other than that you probably magnetized the monitor and partially killed it.
