Try this 1

1) When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get

"Windows Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and

keep tapping the F8 key)

Select the option "Safe Mode".

When the desktop appears, Click on Start --> Run --> Type devmgmt.msc and

press Enter. "Device Manager" will be opened.

Expand "Display adapters" --> Under the "Display adapter", right-click on your

display adapter (Example : Display adapter may be Nvidia or VIA etc ) -->

Select the option "Uninstall" --> Restart your laptop.

2) If the problem still exists then try connecting an external monitor to your

laptop. Just look for the VGA connector ( there will be a monitor symbol ) in your

laptop and connect it to the external monitor then switch ON your laptop.

Note : If you failed to get the display in external monitor, then use the proper

combination keys(like Fn+F5/ the function key that's having the monitor symbol

on it) to toggle between your laptop screen and the external monitor.

Check if are able to get a normal screen display in the external monitor or not.

Good Luck

4 yrs later, your solution still works . . . mine was on an old Windows Vista SP2 laptop.
