# Computer Screen goes black after Windows » Forum
This is letting my computer start up now ...
1. Going into Safe Mode - then I press F5 and F8 .... till the Welcome to Windows screen shows up
2. Then I right click on desktop and choose Display properties > Settings - it shows 640 X 680 pixels. I say APPLY - even though I DID NOT CHANGE ANYTHING in the display properties.
It gives me a message saying that "
At this time display properties are limited to troubleshooting. Next time system starts it will be in 640X 480X16 color mode, custom refresh rates wll be removed and secondary display will be disable. After you have restarted you can change the driver and make other setting changes."
So I hit OK button and it says I must restart my computer for new setting to take place and I say Yes then computer restarts.
Also, it shows me that my monitor is a IBM Thinkpad LCD 1024 X 768 and my Display Adapter is RAGE MOBILITY-M AGP (English)
Next time - it shows IBM logo then Microsoft Windows 98 logo and then start my computer with a blown up screen - which is the 640X480 resolution. So at least computer is starting in normal mode.
Now it is giving error " There is problem with your display settings. The adapter type is incorrect or the current settings do not work with your hardware" I am going to press ok as that is the only choice.
It opened Display properties and only settings tab it is showing 2 monitors and saying "Drag the monitor to match the physical arrangement of your monitors
Under Display - it shows 2 options:
1. IBM Thinkpad LCS 1024X768 on Rage Mobility - M AGP (English)
2. Default monitor on Rage Mobility -M AGP (English) with 256 colors
I chose option 1 with 256 colors and Screen area 640 X 480 , it is saying needs to restart windows and giving message Windows is now restarting ...... on black screen and again it became the black screen :(
