Abit Kd7, 512DDR 2700, Radeon9500 128DDR. WinXP Home
This is a system I built myself and when I boot up from cold it gets to the first window screen and then the monitor goes into standby and can't be woken again, but the power from the pc is still going. To get round this problem I switch of at the back and then power up again to be met with a screen appologising for the start up problem, probably due to a hardware, software or power problem. There is a few options on how I want to start windows, I usually go for the last good configuration or start up normal.
Sometimes this is all it takes and sometimes I have to do it 3 or 4 times but once I am in windows it is fine, and if I have to do a reboot for a new program or such like it always gets into windows without a problem.
Sorry for this being so long winded, but any help or advice would be appreciated.

Try running in Diagnostics Startup to see if problem goes away, if it does you have something loading during startup causing this.

Use "Diagnostics Startup" to troubleshoot Windows
