Hello, There is an issue that I have been experiencing with Windows 7 for a while now and I was wondering if anybody else has experienced it and/or knows a solution. I have checked Google but I can't find my exact case, mostly system freezes and unrelated problems. Basically when my computer boots I see the Windows logo with "Starting Windows" and when it disappears the screen stays black but I also hear the startup music playing. After a good 10-20 seconds my user appears and allows me to type my password. While the screen is black there is nothing visible, no icons, no mouse points, nothing. If I blindly type my password after hearing the music I can actually log in because I hear the logon sound playing and a few seconds later I see my desktop instead of the logon screen. Does anybody know of a way to solve this or at least find the cause?
