If someone can guide me in finding updated drivers for my graphics cards, if there are any (according to the HP website I have the most recent ones), I will be grateful.
The thing is, if it's an HP laptop, you can only use the drivers provided by HP. If you're running the latest drivers, the only thing you could try to do is reinstall them.

Something else it could be related to is your WIFI connection. The delay in WIFI connectivity may be causing the delay in boot up, and the black screen. I'm not sure how to resolve that issue.

Perhaps a more experienced forum member will chime in with some advice.

I've been told leshcat continued the line of display drivers for my graphics configuration. I've tried them and they were unstable (graphical artifacts, especially with html5 videos) and did not contribute to solving the problem.

I think it's pretty safe to assume it doesn't have to do with my display drivers.

Are you on a domain, have mapped network drives, or running antivirus?

Thanks for your reply.

I am not on a domain and have not mapped network drives.

I have MSFT Security Essential as antivirus. If you read my thread, you can learn. I am not able to boot my computer.

Thanks for sharing.
