Disconnect all unnecessary hardware from the system. This includes hard drives, video cards, USB devices, and expansion cards. Remove all but one stick of RAM.

Use the VGA output on your card if possible.

These problems can also be caused by bad RAM. Run a memory diagnostic overnight, using Memest86 or something similar.

If nothing above works, you may have bad installation media. What condition is the disc in? Verify your copy of Windows came from a reputable source. Try burning a new DVD, using the slowest speed possible.
Taken from my post Take a look, you may find something else that works for you.

Does the monitor go blank when it stalls out?

If so, this is common when drivers are being installed and a video card or tv tuner card are outputted to another screen, t.v. or monitor.
