Running WinXP Pro on a new AMD Athlon 2100+ system.

Have a 19" monitor.

When you start up the system you see the normal startup displays and just before you hear the Windows start tune the screen goes blank. Turn the monitor off and back on & everything is fine. It also happens on a restart.

Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

Hmm.. So Windows loads up, the monitor goes blank and when you turn the monitor off and on again, it works? interesting..

Perhaps you need an updated monitor driver?

Check the monitor cable? Any bent pins, loose connections?

i sometimes have the same prob... if you reboot its ok... no idea what causes it.. i got a feeling it was due to the ram not being in properly so sometimes it just wasnt booting properly.. since i reseated ram i have not had the prob and comp has not randomly rebooted.
