    My daughter's Desktop monitor went black.

    She hooked it up to her laptop and it worked perfectly.



    Tried to boot from install disk and got to Safe Mode but then

    went black again.



    Any idea's on to fix it. I assume since the monitor works

    (with the laptop) it has something to do with XP.



    The only things that was done was to add a new "external hard drive" which

    was

    done successfully, but when she went to try to assign her Norton backup to

    store

    on the new drive, Norton wouldn't let her. So she shut down for the night

    and

    work on it the next day.



    Next day, boot up, and black screen.



    Thank in advance for the help!
