Default Boot problem

every other time i restart my computer it goes through the whole load process but right when its about to get to the windows loading screen it goes completely blank......then i press the restart button and it will boot normally. It does this every other time without fail. Any ideas why this is and how i can fix it?

I have that happen ALL THE TIME!

I hate it!

Something that I do, doesn't always work, but if i press the Ctrl, Windows and Alt button when it goes there, it sometimes starts to run in Safe Mode.

DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK

That's just something that I have figured out.

The only other thing I can say is, ask someone better "qualified."

Unless you have a new Dell; in which case A would be useless and you might as well put in SCSI.
