Windows 7: Window starts up then turns to blackscreen with cursor after crossfire

Window starts up then turns to blackscreen with cursor after crossfire

I've been having longer the normal windows load time after getting my second 6950 in my comp. I noticed that it starts up then goes into blackscreen with cursor then takes another 5 seconds to completely load into windows. Im thinking its something to do with adding another video card as i haven't experienced this before.

My Windows is installed on my Intel 320 80 GB SSD. Game performance stays the same. just the load up time for windows has slowed down a lot

Since you don't have any responses, I'll offer up a possibility (based upon my VAST 2 weeks of experience with windows 7). I had a similar issue on my new PC after an issue with an external drive. I'm pretty sure that the black screen with delayed startup indicates a driver problem. I think that would make sense based upon the fact that you just added a new card. Might try reloading the driver.

Mouse Cursor Turns into Repeating Pattern Occassionally.
I don't mean the cursor has a trail behind it due to a visual effect. I mean, sometimes the cursor will be replaced with a repeating pattern of the cursor, it will look like a line. It will only be like that in specific windows and then it will go away. It's still functional, just odd. Looks...
