This is a strange thing jef,

The boot sequence starts immediately when you power up the PC and you see a "boot" screen, then the hardware configuration screen followed by the windows load screen, and, eventually, Windows.

So, when your PC eventually comes to life, do you see windows already up and running? If so, then the computer is probably booting normally, only you can't see it because of a display problem.

If it is what I described above, then I would immediately suspect the monitor, can you try another monitor to test it?

If it's not the monitor, then suspect the video card.

EDIT: I just had a look at your mainboard, it's very unusual in that it is an Intel 915P chipset with both an AGP slot and a PCIe 16x graphics slot as well.

Has it done this since it was new? If so, carefully check and re-configure your BIOS settings concerning the graphics configuration. Re-setting CMOS sets everything to basic defaults, is it possible that the board defaults to the other slot?
That board would be a terrific solution if it performed problem free! :tazz:
