Monitor goes black at connection..

by rbt / May 25, 2005 6:49 AM PDT

I have a Windows XP PC with integrated video, after reformat, the monitor goes off as soon as I try to connect to the Internet. I am using a dialup modem.

Could this be the video driver, modem driver, or both?

Any suggestions is appreciated.
