Hi all From fist turning my pc on it can take up to 3 mins to get to the password screen ,after iv entered the password it can take up to 5 mins before my desktop opens ( it just stays black), the odd thing is i think all the programs are there and the desktop is open but the screen just stays black for ages. I'm running vista thanks for any help.
