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

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.
