    I have a spare laptop that has a broken lcd, that I just hook another monitor to. Anyways, when I start it, it loads xp then the monitor immediately goes to sleep, but the comp still stays on. I can press f8, go into safe mode, and it loads fine that way.

    you might need to tell it to switch to your monitor, on my old xp it's Function f2.

    It just started doing this. Was working fine yesterday, tried to start the comp today and I see windows xp loading and then the monitor just goes to sleep while the comp still stays on.
