could be video drivers or background software

My experience is that this problem is caused by two things:
1) video card is not displaying the image in a form the monitor can interpret. To solve this, in your case, boot into safe mode and uninstall your video drivers. When it gets back into normal mode, re-install them and see if that fixes your problem.
2) You are having a problem with a service or startup program. Boot into Safe Mode, click Start, then Run. Typein msconfig, and hit Enter. Deselect everything, and click OK. Reboot
IF your problem is solved, go back in msconfig, and turn everything on one at a time, rebooting each time, until the problem re-occurs. Go back into Safe Mode, turn it back off, and reboot. MAKE SURE your anti-virus, firewall and anti-spyware is turned on when you finish, or BAD THINGS will happen later on.
If this does not solve your problem, post your results for additional solutions.
