  • I had this happen to me about 2 weeks ago.  I had recently upgraded to vista SP2 hoping it would fix the multitude of problems I had with vista.  It seemed a LITTLE more stable for a couple weeks.  Then one day I tried to turn on my desktop and...a black screen.  I didn't see the message you mentioned "system monitor settings missing."  But it would go through the normal boot process, you would see the Vista screen.  And then when I would normally see the login screen, just a black screen with nothing.  I couldn't do anything.  You can search the web for black screen of death and you will find a bunch of ideas.  None of them worked for me, I just wasted my entire weekend trying them all.  Microsoft's suggestion was to install a parallel copy of vista.  Ya...I'll get right on that...just install the same piece of ____ again.  I downloaded the RC for windows 7 and I've been VERY happy with it.  The RC of 7 is MUCH more stable and reliable than vista, vista SP1 or SP2.  Microsoft needs to give everyone a free upgrade from Vista to 7!!
