Hi, This is a bit weird.... When I turn on my computer the machine boots fine right up until the windows splash screen should appear. Then the monitor goes dark and everything seems to stop. To complete the boot into windows xp I have to turn the monitor off then on again. Then the screen degausses, and comes on and the login screen comes on with some text saying "Windows is now starting". The graphics card is a Sapphire Radeon Atlantis 9700 Pro and the screen is an Iiyama VM Pro 451 (CRT) Bizarre??? Any ideas?? Martin.
