Blank Screen During Boot

  Legslip 13:15 06 Aug 09

I have two laptops running Vista. On one of them during the startup process as it starts to load the finla few icons in the system tray the screen goes completely bank and black for about five seconds. It is a little disconcerting. Any ideas as to the cause?

try it in safe mode, if it load ok then probably a graphics driver problem

Tried in Safe Mode but AVG does not load there and vista boots cleanly. However, in normal mode I have disabled all progs at startup in MSConfig and the screen still goes off. I have checked the graphics drivers and they are up to date. Any further thoughts?
