Dell Vostro 1400 with black screen and no curser RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer after getting updates yesturday went to a black screen.  I finally got an external monitor to work and got into safe mode.  I went to device manager and found video driver corrupted.  I reinstalled the driver and uninstalled the recent updates.  I rebooted the laptop and got a screen right away. I logged in and black screen again.  I went back to external monitor and checked the driver again and it showed fine.  Rebooted again and still black screen with no curser and can't get the computer to show anything on the external monitor now except for a bunch of colors all the same color in each row.  Almost looks like a knit weave with some flickering.  Anybody got a clue what is causing this?
