    Lightbulb I think this is what you are after

    Give this code a go

    Code:
    #include<iostream.h> 
    
    int main() 
    { 
    	int counter,x;
    	counter=0; 
    
    	while(counter<8) 
    	{ 
    		if(counter%2)
    		{
    			for(x=0;x<8;x++) 
    			{ 
    				cout << "* "; 
    			}
    		}
    		else
    		{
    			for(x=0;x<8;x++) 
    			{ 
    				cout << " *"; 
    			}
    		}
    
    	cout<<endl;
    	counter++;
    
    	}
    
    	return 0; 
    }
