    When I start windows vista normally, My monitor goes blank. when press the
    menu button on the monitor, it says that it is in power saver mode. I cannot
    get any picture to show up. My monitor works fine in safe mode. This happened
    just after I tried to update my graphics drivers.

    Hi,

    Use F8 at boot to get the start menu, choose the 'last known good
    configuration'.

    I tried that, and It booted windows in safe mode. I have also tried rolling
    back the updates on my graphics drivers, but windows said there were no
    updates I could roll back.

    And have you tried a system restore as well?

    Yes, I have. I restored my computer to a few days before today, and it still
    had the problem.

    Hi,

    From safe mode, uninstall any supporting video software, then retry starting
    normally. If that succeeds, you can then download and install the most
    recent distribution from the manufacturer.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean uninstall the drivers?

    Hi,

    Usually, most video cards have supporting software controls that can be
    removed under Programs and Features in the control panel. When you do so,
    the system should revert to a standard VGA driver (same as you are using in
    Safe mode), allowing you to boot into normal mode again.

    I was able to uninstall the software successfully, and now windows vista
    boots up normally. The monitor no longer goes in to power saver mode. Thank
    you so much for your help!
