I was wondering if anyone knew why my Compaq Presario 7470, running Win98SE, now doesn't display anything on my monitor until the Windows Desktop info, no flashing cursor, no Compaq logo, nothing..just black. I hit enter a couple times and hear the harddrive run and then my Desktop appears. Comp also appears to refuse to startup in Safemode. I have been told I may be missing or have a faulty generic driver for my monitor. How do I correct this? Appreciate any helpful input anyone would have on this prob.
