Hi all could anyone help me with this problem? My system is a self build with Asus P8Z68-V Pro and Intel i5 2500k chip. I installed 6 updates from Microsoft about 7:30 this eveving and my machine has not worked since. It will not boot from hard disc or Win7 CD. Screen is white all the time. I have disconnected HD and I cannot get into the BIOS either. Any thoughts?

Can you get into safe mode (tap f8 on startup) - you may be able to select Last Known Good Configuration

Unfortunatly not, when I turn on machine screen is all white and cannot see anything I cannot even get into the bios, which I have reset.

You associate problem with windows updates but check all external leads between rear of computer and monitor, unplug and reconnect including power leads, may be bad contact?

A Windows update can't cause those problems, so, for starters, try connecting a different monitor.

Thanks for the update PJ.

Don't go tinkering too much as it's not a Windows problem. It's likely that the monitor's packed in :( You can prove this of course by connecting it to a different PC.
