I really don't know what the problem is, but I would tend to suspect the video driver. I don't know anything about notebook either, but I imagine that you have onboard video. Check in the Device Manage to see what it shows for the driver for the Display Adapter, then check with HP to see what they recommend.

I think all copies of Windows 7 do that because mine does that as well. I've seen Windows 7 videos that have footage of that also, so I think it's normal and nothing to worry about.

I agree with the above poster. Mine does the same thing, though never timed it, might not be as long as ten seconds.

Have you a "Blinking White Cursor" in the top left corner of the black screen?


This could indicate that you have set your Bios to Boot from your DVD/CD Drive on 1st Boot, a 5/10sec delay then occurs before it boots into Windows on your HDD (in this scenario your 2nd boot Device)


If this is the case I would suggest you set your Bios to Boot the HDD that your OS is on as 1st boot device,


With Windows 7, if you tap the F8 Key continually as Bios loads on Start Up you are presented with a "Select Boot Device"screen, in-place of the "Advanced Boot Options" screen. = From here you can then select to boot from your Nominated (Preloaded) DVD/CD Drive, if you wish to Boot from a Boot Disk.

There could be a task called TMM in task scheduler which searches for any connected monitors. Disable that if its there.
