Try another monitor.
Maybe windows does not like it?

It is possible that the refresh rate isn't set correctly. Tap F8 on startup and choose "Enable VGA Mode" or boot into safe mode and manually set the monitor to a lower resolution & refresh rate. Alternatively you can go into MSCONFIG and set the check box for "base video" until you get a driver installed.
