First let me start with the systems specs. Its a Rev A. Dual 2.0 Ghz with an ATI 9600 64 megs I think it has 1.5 gigs of ram Now the problem is that whenever I start it up it starts up black. Now I I know that it the system boots because when I click the volume buttons I hear the norm pop. Also if I type in his login password and hit return it shows up on the network in about 15 seconds. Know I have zapped the PRAM several times with no luck. I have also reinstalled the GPU with no success. When I boot from the hardware test disk nothing appears on the screen. Also I am 100% sure that the monitor works and is on and is plugged in, as I have tested it with my powerbook. The only other thing I can think to tell you guys is that is has been a persisting problem sense 10.3.6. By this I mean that it has happened 4 times and each time after about 20 tries it will work. When the computer is up and running there are no problems but when ever it has to restart for an update or something it goes into the state I have just described. Any thoughts?
