Hi Moderators. Thanks in advance.

I am new to win 2000 and i have come across a trouble spot with a machine i am working on.Its a Gateway 2000 with a p 3 450 mhz with 128 megs ram i dont remember the video card but here is what i do KNow. It had a virus on this computer which i in turn cleaned out with The help of Spybot and AVG 6.0. The machine will boot through the post ok but gets a hickup when the win 2k screen comes on it then goes blank. I do a warm reboot a wha-la it starts up. I am thinking a Video problem or a cpu any Help i would appreciate . Thanks in advance Joseph Boscoe
