Just bought a new computer and installed WXPpro-no problem. Tried to install software for Samsung flatscreen and it wouldn't change from default monitor. Now catastrophe, as I clicked something, VGA adapter? and now no screen when OS has started. Tried windows recovery and reinstalling OS but pointless as it is a blank screen. Can I start again,reformat the HDD or something. I have no idea what i'm doing.:o:o

have you tried during booting into safe mode? during boot press F8 - choose safe mode vga.

if this works go to the control panel -> display -> settings and see what monitor options you have

Sounds like you may have set up a second monitor and chose it as default.

It's OK now. I booted it again just after posting and it reinstalled OS OK:unsure. If it happens again ,I will try suggestions- don't want to keep reinstalling OS:redface:. Thanks for your input and time guys, much appreciated. :)
