Hello,
Please click on the link below and choose agree. Next you will need to download and run the connection utility. Make sure if anything pops up asking you to allow or run you choose to do so.

Am I doing this on my desktop or my laptop?

On the computer we will be working on, it is the laptop correct, your wifes computer?

Just connect on whichever one has the problem.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no it's her desktop computer which keeps on going blank and then I have to eventually shut it down. I am using my laptop to talk to you

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Can I do it in safe mode with networking?

Ok you will need to do this on her computer.

If the screen keep going black you need to boot into safe mode with networking.

Restart her computer and keep tapping the F8 key on the keyboard before windows starts, next choose safe mode with networking and the screen will look a bit funny but will not go black.

Return here on that computer and click the link to connect.

it is still trying to join your session

Remember you need to allow the download to run, or else it will not connect.

Look for something that says it is being blocked or asking your permission to run.

Ok in safe mode with networking try again

If it does not connect hold down CTRL and press the letter J to open the downloads window. Doubleclick the file called elsinore to run the connection program.

I am even having trouble opening it in safe mode with networking

How so?

Are you unable to get to the menu? You need to keep tapping F8 as soon as it starts, well before you see the windows screen.

If you can get the connection to run in regular mode I can get it into safe mode on my end.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

got it

Is it booting up now?, I am waiting to reconnect after restart
Your video card drivers you had installed were not working correctly.

I uninstalled the driver and re-installed the proper one which should fix the issue. Test it out for a bit and make sure. If it starts crashing again I will remote back in.

Thanks,
Chris

Ok thank you so much for all of your help. I first noticed a problem when it would take forever and a day for it to shut down and then I would have to manually shut it down and then it would say the computer was not shut down correctly.

It must have some how installed the video driver wrong, it could have been due to that issue though.

Let's see but I think it will be ok now.
