  • Press sleep button and switch on/off button to be able to see login screen

    Friend of mine has got problem with his new desktop (XP SP2) , when he starts the PC it boots normally till it reaches where it shows windows XP logo then the screen gets blank (i.e he can not see the login name for users).

    What he used to do: is press the sleep button on the keyboard, then after that press the hardware switch on/off button (not the reset button) on the tower of the hard box.

    After pressing switch on/off button, he gets directly (pay attention to this) to the login screen where he can see the usernames for all users.

    He has to do this procedure every time he would like to boot the desktop

    VGA is NiVida with dual outputs, similar to below image

    Complete random guess (so apologies if it is nonsense!) but:
    1. If the motherboard has onboard VGA too make sure the card is primary not the onboard in the bios.
    2. Update the video card drivers.
    3. Use the other output to the main monitor.
    cheers
