When i switch my pc on sometimes it works okay and other times I just get a blank screen like my monitor is not connected. I have tried other monitors , cables and graphics cards. I cannot hear any beebs so it may not be booting. Is this my motherboard or my hard drive or could this be something else?

had this problem before i re-installed xp,and not had it since.
Not really the answer you want as i never did find the cause.
Corrupted xp perhaps?

You could try disabling all programmes at start up and see if that makes a difference.Bit off a pain starting them manually but if it works you can gradually enable them again one at a time in a process of elimination.
