It sounds like the video system or the monitor is developing a fault. If you're running a motherboard video system, I would try to remove the memory chips and make sure they are clean of dust. If you have a AGP or PCI-E video card, I would examine the card and also make sure it's clean of dust. While you're "under the hood", examine your CPU heat sink and make sure that the cooling surfaces are also not impacted with dust. If your system is dust free, then I'd say it maybe the monitor, (although if that were the case your desktop should also be impacted).
The shift that your display is having sounds like a frequency shift. Adjust your video settings by changing the resolution settings, (go into your display control panel and click on the Settings s tab. You will see a resolution slide bar). Change the resolution and apply it and see what happens. Don't worry. If the resolution setting you choose can't display, your system will revert to the one that worked after 15 seconds.
What is your motherboard and video card?, (if there is one)...

Thanks for the quick reply. My motherboard is an ASUSTeK Computer INC. Goldfish3 1.xx and my video controller is an Intel® 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family [Display adapter] which I would assume is integrated into the motherboard(?) and not an actual video card. I will try the things you suggested and see what happens. You're obviously more knowledgeble than I when it comes to the inner workings of a computer so I feel kind of funny even questioning anything, but why would only my boot-up screen be affected?
Thanks again and I'll let you know what happens on my end
