My System Specs

Default Black Screen??

Well I've got an interesting intermittent problem.

Intel Core i7 930
EVGA X58 3way SLI
WD Black 640
6GB G.Skill 9-9-9-27 1600 1.65v
Win 7 64 Bit Home Premium

Every now and then, my computer boots up and I get the windows splash page. After that the traditional blue windows loading screen.
What happens after is wierd.
The screen is just black. My monitor light is blue and solid (meaning it has signal), my EVGA board has its diagnostic LED showing my CPU Temp (which means successful Post) and my HDD light is occasionally flickering.
But, it doesn't load windows. I don't get anything.
I have all my drivers up to date. WIndows is up to date.

Sometimes after 1 restart I get it back, sometimes it takes 1 or 2 before I get it back and running.

Anyone have any ideas on this one?

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
