    My computer has been running normally for quite a while now. Just the other day though, it started having a weird problem. I will turn it on, it will load the BIOS screen, then it will dislpay a blank screen for about 10 seconds before loading Windows XP. Windows loads normally and works fine after that. I think that this problem may have started after I installed and then uninstalled Dameon Tools, but I am not sure; that's just an idea.

    If it's only 10 seconds and everything is running normally, there doesn't seem to be a problem. Both of my systems have a delay between bios and the Windows load screen. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yeah, I just noticed that it was a lot longer than normal. My computer normally has a 3 or 4 second delay but a 10 to 15 second delay is not normally at all.
