Greetings!

I know this is a mainly PC discussion forum, but just thought I'd post this here as it involves Windows.........

My iMac recently keeps 'white-screen'-ing on me..

I have Boot Camp installed, but sometimes it takes a few restarts for me to boot into Windows.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

have you tried an apple hardware test to see if any hardware is failing?

Oh and dont worry about being a pc forum. Some of us here are Mac Freaks as well. (Just not all of us have current mac hardware, me :(, but still know stuff)

Did you by any chance use Windows SP1 with Boot camp.
Unless you use SP2 you will get this problem
Have a look at this info

PC = Personal Computer

We don't discriminate based on OS or Gender, however you get bonus brownie points if you're a female and not using Windows IMO ;)
