  1. i have xp pro sp2 installed and everytime i turn on the pc it starts up very normally but then after the loading screen most of the time it loads to a black screen. if i restart a couple of times and it will finally load to the login screen

    what can i do to stop it from happening?

    regards

    first place to start would be the drivers - and maybe start with the graphics.
    can you boot reliably into safe mode?
    have you changed any of the hardware?

    i changed from the geforce 6200 agp to an ati 7000 series agp

    as the nvidia had to be sent away

    could drivers be conflicting?

    before installing a new graphics card it is always a good idea to remove the drivers and/or any software associated with the old card.

    This Has happened to me before..... I did a quick-format......... it must've been the drivers but the problem fixed...
