    When I strart my laptop, the 'normal' Toshiba screen comes up, then the Windows screen, then the WELCOME screen for WXP, it lists the users on the system, and then as I am about to type my password, the screen goes blank for about 3-5 seconds, the WELCOME screen comes back, and I can type in my password and log in.

    This seems to have just started to happen recently, can't seem to find a reason for the screen to clear. Is there a file I can check to see the boot up and see if there is a clear screen command after the initial presentation of the WELCOME screen?

    I unchecked Fast User Switching, and that didn't seem to make any difference.



    I have a Toshiba Laptop 2410, with an external 80GB hard drive, a second CD/ROM/DVD drive, a ZIP 100MB drive and a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 hub. Those items are NOT attached when I boot up, so the computer is running without any external devices until after I log in.

    Any ideas??
