If you've wiped out the HD, you then reloaded the OS from what? Have you tried the basic safe boot option, hitting F8 doing initial boot. If not, do so and check the video setting. Change them to what is required. If unable to change be sure to load the proper drivers, etc.. What are your results?
All right so I just wiped my hard drive on my acer aspire 3610. The problem lies in that, the screen to my laptop is screwed so I have an old desktop monitor hooked up which was working fine until after I wiped. The screen still works because I still have to type in my bios password and I can see that on the screen when I go into the bios. But after windows loads, the monitor will not turn and since my laptop screen is wacked I dont know what I have to click, i do hear some funky music though, and if I click tab then enter I can hear that there are different options. But I do not know where to stop.
If anyone could replicate this process and post a vid or some screen shots so I could at least guess where to click, or how many times to click tab that would be absolutely amazing and if you have any other ideas thanks.
P.S. I am not replacing my screen on my laptop.
