Boot video problem

I post this periodically, hoping somebody might have come across it. So,
here goes, again.
I'm running Feisty. If I turn the machine off, then restart it, the
video shows the Gateway splash screen, then "Kubuntu" with the blue
progress bar, but a wide vertical bar on the right side that I can clear
by hitting Auto on the LCD.
Booting proceeds, and I get a wristwatch for a mouse cursor, then an
arrow. The arrow then freezes, a white square appears in the center of
the screen, and that's that for booting.
If, on the other hand, I put in ANY live CD (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Knoppix --
doesn't seem to matter), and choose Boot from First Harddrive, I'm good
to go. Video is normal and I get to the login screen just fine.
So, the put-in-a-liveCD workaround works around the problem, but that's
a dorky way to fix it. Anybody have any idea what's going on?
