blank screen
teebucket Jul-26-00 02:17 PM
I'm building a Athlon computer. CPU 600 mhz, video card AGP, OS windows 98 SE. The system will boot properly and run great. The problem is when you do a warm boot, the screen will stay blank until you do a cold boot. I have look at drivers and they are current. I don't receive any error messages.

Thanks for your help

Try another monitor. Try anothe adapter. Slow the computer down and see if it works OK. See http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q238/0/96.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0. Larry

I've seen this happen...in many cases it turned out to be the video card not being properly initialized on soft boot...I have also come across monitors that go into "suspend mode" and dont quite "wake up"...pressing the monitor pwr button off and on will "wake it up, but thats almost as bad as where you're at now..haha
