    Windows black screen on boot

    Here are my specs
    asus 4870
    samsung 226bw
    4gig mushkin ram
    antec 850
    windows xp

    So I installed the driver off Asus' website for my card. When I reboot sometimes I get a blank screen after the blue welcome screen in windows, and it will just stay blank my monitor not being able to detect digital/analog. I used to reinstall XP everytime that happened, but then I rebooted like 8 times and it finally worked. I don't know if it's a ram issue or a driver issue, anyways is there an updated driver or something I should be using?

    I just installed the latest catlyst drivers, and I rebooted and I got the blank screen after the screen that says loading Windows XP, with the copyright on the bottom left. I had to reboot in safe mode, and uninstall the Catalyst drivers. So I am pretty sure this is driver related.

    download an alternative driver and the driver clean up tool from ATI. clean up this driver and install the previous release.

    post back your findings.
