Hi guys, I am new to the forums, but not to windows, I've been using microsoft products since DOS and windows 3.1 so I know windows inside out. I just installed windows 7 RC1 onto my acer netbook (1.6ghz atom, 1GB ram, 160GB HDD) and it installed in 5-10 minutes real quick from my thumb drive. After updating it and reseting the netbook, it loads up fast, but it loads to a black screen with the mouse for about 20-30 seconds before I can choose which username I want to log into. The HDD light isnt blinking, so the computer really isnt proccesing much to make it have such a long pause. Anyone else experience this and know how to fix it? I've done fixes for people who had similar issues such as logging into a blank screen with the mouse only showing, but I still get the problem. The comptuer runs 100% fine besides the 20-30 second pause before choosing my username to login to. Thanks!
