    ya so i do a reboot and all of a sudden my monitor won't work after the screen where the bar progresses across the screen. however i have an extended desktop on my tv (so i can watch movies and such).... that works... but is horrible for reading text and such.... i finally rebooted into safe mode (with the help of the magnifyer) and safe mode works on the monitor... anyone have a clue as to what's up?

    sounds like hte TV got set as the primary. Use the TV to go into display properties and re-enable the monitor.
