Hi there

Everytime I boot my computer i see the boot screen but just before it goes into desktop the screen stays black. This happens each time and usually i ahve to keep booting up and it finallys gets into windows xp home? I think this happen after i use Tune Up Utlities 2006 but not sure if its related?

thanks zincy

does it work every time if you select safe mode? hit f8 repeatedly during start up for a menu enabling you to select safe mode

full anti virus scan and spyware scan recommended (ewido is very effective click here) , as well as a thorough check of your hard drive (right click the drive, select properties, tools, Check Now)

yes it does work everytime in safe mode.
I have ran Kasperksy 2006, A2, and spybot search and destroy. It found just the usual cookies. Ok i will check no hard drive.

If it boots ok in safe mode then its probably a driver problem.

Uninstall each driver and see wich is causing the problem.
