Re: Screen goes blank after login
I have the same kind of problem. I have a Acer Travelmate C310 with Nvidia
GeForce Go 6200. Every time I login to my account, it took 2 or 3 seconds,
then the screen goes blank and comes back again. It seems to me like the
graphic driver is making a reset.
It's very annoying if you have a external monitor pluged in. If I log in,

am working further on, it goes back to "Windows Aero" by itself.
I have tried different Vista compatible driver versions but there is no
