Windows 7: Blank screen on boot up, before login screen; slow startup

Blank screen on boot up, before login screen; slow startup

Hey, first time posting here, so sorry if this is the wrong section or anything.

Lately my laptop has been experiencing a problem when I boot it up. After the Starting Windows screen with the glowing Windows logo, a blank black screen pops up that lasts for ages (I'd say at least 5 minutes). Afterwards the login screen will appear as normal.

When I log in, the desktop appears quickly, but when I try to start any programs, like my browser, they are slow and freeze often (usually I can run programs with no problem when the desktop appears). Sometimes the laptop will hang every three seconds. It takes a bit of time before the programs and the laptop run like normal.

I've tried several things without success:
-Uninstalling and reinstalling graphics drivers (I've never updated my drivers because no updates are ever available for my driver; is that normal? My laptop is about two years old)
-Defragging hard drive
-System Restore (I don't seem to have any restore points)
-Clean bootup
-Startup repair (or whatever that first F8 option is called)

Welcome to Seven Forums Tienjt.

You can run this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and post back with results.
Below my sig is a link to MalwareBytes, download the free version, update it, and run a full scan.

Have you installed anything new, hardware or software? Sometimes OEM's don't/won't have driver updates.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm running the SFC scan right now, so I'll post the results later.

I don't think I've installed anything recently. This startup problem started occurring at around the same time I disabled my Bluetooth. Re-enabling it didn't do anything though. I also recently updated my Synaptics driver, but this startup problem was occurring before that.

After both scans I rebooted the laptop, but I still got the ~5 minute blank screen before the login screen.

Whew! You only had to say no violations and one malware found and deleted.

Does the long black screen occur on a cold boot too, such as when the laptop has been off for hours? I was thinking maybe there is an overheat problem caused by dust in the vents, or where it is sitting. If used on your lap, or a soft surface, the vents could be blocked.

I would run a boot trace. There's an excellent guide here:

Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues - MSFN Forum

That should help you narrow down the cause of the black screen.

A couple of possibilities.

Are you conncected to a network?
If Yes,
THEN disconnect from the network.

Problem gone?

I realize that you may need the network, but we need to fault-isolate.

If you boot into SAFE MODE, is the problem gone?
BOOT TO SAFE MODE
Power down your computer.
Power up your computer.
IMMEDIATELY—Start tapping the SPACEBAR
When the Windows Boot Manager screen appears,
Press the F8 key
The Advanced Boot Options screen will appear.
Using the down arrow key, highlight Safe Mode
Press the ENTER key.

In shorthand,
PowerUp | Spacebar until Windows Boot Manager
| F8 | Safe Mode | ENTER

=====================================================
=====================================================

We've only scratched the surface of possibilities, but need you responses to each and to everyone of these.

thanks,

Oh, sorry about that, haha. And nope, I turn off my laptop every night so it's basically cold booted every day, and I have to wait for the blank screen to go away every time.

@kegobeer
I tried downloading the toolkit, but apparently it didn't install correctly (probably my fault). When I rebooted my laptop, I got the blue screen of death and couldn't get Windows to start, so I had to do a System Restore. I guess I'll try again later. Thanks for the suggestion though.

@karlsnooks
If by network you mean internet connection (I sound like a newb), then yes, I turned it off before rebooting, but it didn't work. The problem does go away when I boot in Safe Mode though!

@gregrocker
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check your link later; I need some sleep!

Thank you everyone!
