    I had recently formatted and reinstalled windows xp home edition. Everytime I restart my computer this comes up after the Dell logo displays. It lasts for approximately 5 minutes and then the Windows XP loading screen comes up and boots to the desktop. This load is really annoying and has never happended to me on previous installs of Windows XP. Please let me know how to resolve this issue.

    System Specs.
    Dell Dimension 4600
    Windows XP home edition SP2(This issue also came up on the original install)
    Pentium 4 3.4ghz processor
    1 gb ram
    128mb ATI Radeon Pro graphics card

    That screen is actually a byproduct of SP2, as long as you run SP2 your stuck with it.

    I've ran SP1 and have not gotten this screen. I have also ran SP2 in previous installs and never got this screen before. I think I will be going to an authorized computer repair shop for this.

    That screen is part of the loading process but NOT for 5 minutes!

    5 seconds perhaps (or a bit longer if updates are installing on a boot).

    I therefore agree, there is a problem.
