    see if it will boot without ur oc. it could be the warmer weather causing ur temps to be higher or something...just try that and see.

    weird thing is. here it is:
    i set the standby button on my keyboard to go to the box thing that comes up when u click shut down in start menu. u know, the 1 with 3 buttons (Stand by, Turn off, Restart). while the screen is black and shit, i press the stand by button on my keyboard, and then i press u (shutdown shortcut), and moments later the pc shuts down. i tried that with stand by button then r (restart), and the comp restarted. could this be a prob with my monitor? it is 5 years old

    could be a driver problem. or just an oc problem. take off all oc's on ur computer, see if that helps. if not then fine, atleast u can say you tried that. also try reinstalling\updating ur video drivers.

    oh ya and it could be a problem with ur monitor, or even with ur video card have u tried turning off then back on the monitor at a time when it goes black?

    i think you have a start up program throwing a bitch fit on boot. does it start up normally in safe mode?

    tried turning off and on the monitor. don&#39;t think it&#39;s a driver issue, cuz it works fine now.
