booting up is not the problem. let me say that first. its the way it does it. when i boot up with my monitor plugged into my video card it stays a black screen with monitor in sleep/standby mode until the welcome screen then its fine. but if i boot up with my monitor plugged into my onboard graphics card it boots up fine showing the boot options and xp loading bar. i've tried to reinstall my video card drivers and set default settings in bios under onboard boot up. i dont know what the fuck the problem is. it booted up fine on my card before i upgraded my system.
