    I'm having a problem with a black screen after showing the windows loads screen. It stays black and I have to restart in safe mode. Does not show the HD light on while on black screen so I assume that nothing is trying to load up. I have reformatted 4 different times to fix this. It always works fine for a while(1 week to a month)but goes back to the black screen problem eventually. This last time I upgraded me power supply from 350w to 400w. No problems for about a month, then this morning I get a black screen. All monitor drivers are updated, video, an AGP. I had resolution set at 1024x768, 60hz refresh. With all the stuff I have messed with, this has been going on for about 5 months now, it seems that the monitor might be the problem. Also was having a little problem here lately before the black screen came back. System would boot up but the monitor would never actually come on, the light would stay yellow. Everytime I restarted it would come on and boot up fine, so I didn't worry too much. Please help me!!
