PC not showing Windows logo on Startup

Hey,

I wonder what is happening since I already have formated my computer more than once and for some reason the Windows logo is not showing up when the computer is starting up. Here's a screenshot:


I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits.

Thank you

Right Click on the Command prompt icon and select "Run as Administrator"

Then Type

bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

If you have a non US version of Windows, substitute en-us with your language, pt-PT for Portuguese (Portugal),

pt-BR for Portuguese (Brazil)
Restart your computer

Thank you for your reply.

I just tried that but it didn't work. Is there anything else I can do?

What language is your version of Windows?

Did you receive any error messages when you ran the command?

This has always worked for me.

I thought the reason for this loading screen was because of the hardware on your machine, if you had low specs, i always saw this loading screen, hmm..

What is your screen resolution set at?

If it is lower than 1024 x 768 you will get that alternate boot screen.

well on THIS net book, if i don't have the right drivers, in get the alternate boot screen. I didn't mean that i always see it, just that i always see it on low spec computers. (that's if you were talking to me)

for you, RDC4 is it a lappy or a desktop, and what about your screen resolution like derikimo suggested. please fill in your system specs, not only for help on THIS problem, but help on any other problems System Info - See Your System Specs, what do you mean by formatted your computer, do you mean changed the screen resolution?

It's portuguese, pt-PT, and I used it in the command.

And I didn't receive any error messages, just a confirmation message that the changes were made.

My resolution screen is 1360 x 768, so I don't know what's the problem here.

Ok, I already updated my System Specs. And when I say formatted my computer, I mean I formatted my hard disk drive and installed Windows again.
