Hi guys,

I have been having a problem with my Dell Studio 17 laptop for about a week now and I need it sorted because I use my laptop daily and has important collage documents that need to remain safe.

Just to let you know, I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. The problem is, when I boot my laptop up its perfectly fine! I type in my password and it says welcome for about 20-25 seconds, then it moved to a black screen with the cursor and stays like that before about a minute, then I will start to show the task bar and icons, and then run fine!

Why? Any help please?

Because it's Vista! :) Seriously, it sounds like you are describing my Vista Home Premium. It's been like that almost since day one (at which time I thought there was a problem).

Just what do you want help with? Is the boot taking longer now than it used to? If so, how much longer? Did you install any application(s) about the time the problem started?

It never used to do it. It just takes longer to load up than it did. But only after typing my password in.

Presumably there is/are one or more things starting at boot that did not before this issue started. If you're lucky you'll remember something that you changed or added.
