Why on booting from HDD first, the cursor blinks for sometime ?

Hi,
When i boot from hdd as first priority, my screen blinks with cursor for some time before, yellow lights lit up and do the normal windows boot. I am using windows 7. This makes me think, sometime, that computer is not powered enough . But it is normally booting.

Before BIOS screen, or before win7 animation logo? How long does the blinking text cursor appear? In top left corener of screen?

When i power on, before it goes to the win logo. Yes, cursor at the left top. about 25 to 35 seconds. My yellow lights on only at the end of this blinking. This blink stops, and then window loads normally. Is it normal. Because, i doubted sometimes that computer is not booting and trying to press the power switch again and again.

Is it before or during the actual start of windows 7? Try this Advanced Boot Options you see that "advanced boot options" menu fast, or also a 25 seconds delay before showing that menu?

Yes, it is just blinking - in the top left of monitor. The computer boots up normally. I have tried start up repair and it found no problems . I also tested windows memory diagnostic. nothing found.
is it normal? My son also presses the power on button unnecessarily doubting that computer fails to boot, where as it is not.
Is there any delay time before booting to windows. is that is nearly 30 seconds normal.

Is the delay before or after the F8 Advanced Boot Options menu?

Hi, Thanks for prompt replies.
It is in normal mode. I heard that window processes something before booting. But the yellow light also blinks only after the wait of this cursor blinking. is this ok

yellow light means disk access... so there's no disk access during the wait?

Last time I ask.... answer #6 !

Yes. If you mean yellow light means disk access, then the cursor blinks sometime before the yellow light goes on. In normal boot , and not in advanced boot by f8

so you power on machine, then you press F8 a couple of times. The advanced boot menu appears very soon. You select "normal boot" and press enter. Now you see the blinking cursor for 25 seconds?

So AFTER the F8 advanced boot menu?
