Hi Guys just recently and for no apparent reason my comp has started up got to the loading win 2000 then the screen goes blank I reboot and it starts up fine any help please Kopite

This sort of behaviour can happen when your hard drive gets sluggish at starting up. On reboot the drive is warmer and spins up faster. If this is the cause, a new drive is the only real solution.

Downloaded and ran lifeguard diagnostics and both short and extended test both say my disc is ok kopite

Unless the diagnostics tool includes a cold start test, it won't detect a slow cold start problem.
