Windows 7: Switching Users Problems

Switching Users Problems

I Am running Win7 64 bit. Whenever I switch user accounts the computer will start the switch and then lock up with a display message that says no signal on the monitor. It happens if the computer has been running for hours or only a couple of minutes. I have to shut the PC off and leave it off for 20-30 minutes. I can then restart and enter any user account. But if I try to switch user or logoff and pick a different user the whole cycle begins anew. Can anyone here help me?

No signal to the monitor seems more like a graphics problem. Check and make sure your drivers are up to date. Also, run scannow system file checker. That will check the system files. See if either of these help.

I updated the drivers again and reinstalled Itunes and that did the trick. Thank you for the help essenbe. Brian

I'm glad it works well for you know. In the FWIW department, I've heard that Itunes can cause win 7 issues. I'm not sure how. I have it installed and only have problems with Itunes itself, not windows.
