Please help me with booting problems

Recommended Posts



I have this very strange problem that I don't know how to fix -

Whenever I restart my computer using Windows XP I get

a BRIGHTER display of everything - usually the text appearing when you

restart is white, but it's not bright, and after the restart, everything

changes to this horrible bright white color. If I press the restart button

on the computer, it gets back to normal.

I run also Windows 98 and WinME and I don't have this problem. I had it also

in Windows 2000.

Please help me to solve this problem.

I would appreciate your help - I tried everything.

That sounds like quite a strange problem. Is this ONLY with restarting? I don't have much eXPerience with restarting... I only ever shut down my computer but when I DID do a restart that didn't happen.

You might want to try upgrading your BIOS if possible but I doubt that will help much. You best bet is to just not restart. XP is meant to be this BRILLIANT stable OS with 100+ hours up time and you want to restart? LOL.

I seriously don't restart my computer... I only shut down and then power it up again. It might sound strange but I have never found restarts to be reliable in comparison to shutting down and booting up again.

Although what you said about restarting is completely true, I'm still trying to figure out this thing.

xpressman - I have had exactly that problem! It happened once in Win 2K and once in XP. I have no idea what caused it or what made it go away (it just did!).

It happens everytime you restart? That must suck.
