I would also reccomend checking your startup folder / sheduled tasks for weird things starting up that could be causing the crash.
I.e having a prog run at 6.00am every day thats causing errors and thus when powering up first time round causes the prog to run.
When you say different card I'm assuming you mean a different video card?
And as for any startup programs... I just newly formatted my hard drive and clean installed XP so there isn't anything there - yet!
