I have seen this problem with radeon x800xl but i took a while for the card to die.

Could the problem be a driver that worked well in service pack 2, but need to be updated to work with service pack 3? Or is it a hardware problem?

Not a driver problem if it's happening before the Windows log-in screen. Windows drivers don't get loaded until after you log in.

Anyway, SP3 doesn't need different device drivers compared to SP2. If you go to any manufacturer's driver download page, it doesn't ask you which service pack you've got.

If Windows starts and runs okay, no error messages during boot time, i wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you phil22. I thought the problem was with a driver that controlled the screen.
Thanks again for your help in this matter.
