Windows 7: Post boot freezing

Post boot freezing

Hello,
I'm not a computer guru but I do not know what the term is called when the computer starts up and you see the 'F1' through 'F12' commands.

My HPdv6700 laptop which has Win7 Ultimate 64-bit has not been able to get pass this screen. Basically all I see is 'hp invent' and stuck here for hours. Before it used to run fine with WinVista 32-bit.

I don't know but I was suggested maybe it's something with my BIOS?

So Windows 7 has never worked since upgrading from Vista?

Is does work and it's working atm. But it has a problem getting past that screen after I turn off the laptop or restart it. ALWAYS has a problem.

I am confused. You said in your opening post, "My HPdv6700 laptop which has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit has not been able to get pass this screen."

So if it "ALWAYS" has a problem, and it is not able to get past that screen, how is it working atm? What do you do to get it past that screen?

Sorry. I was stating what my OS was if in any case if that could've been a problem.

But for the ALWAYS having this problem is true. Oddly the case of it working is random. Once it gets past this screen the laptop works fine but the long start up is troubling me. Some cases it'll be a black screen for as long as I leave it on. Some cases it'll get to the 'hp invent logo' aka Post Boot up screen I guess.

Again, that is confusing. Working randomly and "ALWAYS" is contradictory.

That said, most slow boot up problems are caused by hardware drivers failing, or having difficulty loading. It can also be due to unavailable, but expected network or attached drives. Any errors in Device Manager?

Yes, Coprocessor and something with nVidia controller. The only two.

Well, the NVIDIA is the clue. NVIDIA is the maker of your graphics processor. You should visit HP for your computer and download and install the latest Windows 7 64-bit drivers for your computer.

Hm, would that explain why my sounds cut off when using my laptop?
Well I have tried updating it seeing others having this problem, I downloaded '12.35 nforce win7 64bit international whql'
but still no success... :[
