Windows 7: Screen goes blank for a few seconds during boot

@ 557953. This problem is probably caused by Delayed Launcher, which is ticked in your Start Up tab, as shown in your Post #8.

Refer to this website for an explanation.

You can try unticking it in the Start Up tab & then reboot & see if that overcomes the problem. As the website mentions it does help with a possible virus or malware infection prevention, but that decision is up to you.

Ah thats interesting, I still have that ticked after my reformat, as I do it the same every time

Just doing a bit of work at the moment, but soon as Im done I'll untick it and reboot, many thanks for your suggestion!

Hope double posting is ok here!!

Ok well I disabled that service, and no change I'm sorry to say! I actually felt that would work! So thanks again for your suggestion

Am I right in thinking, that it's got to be searching for something? Not sure what, but there must be something it needs to look for thats not set up correctly that is causing the delay, or am I way off??

Lookin at your system specs, and thinking out loud
Your showing Dual monitors, >> sometimes <<
Do you get the delay with only 1 "live" or both, either way it could be your monitor settings within either the Graphics GUI, or that the monitor is in standy mode.
Something to check anyway.

Hi Roy

Well honestly I have not yet used the 2nd monitor since my previous install, as in a couple of weeks ago now so well before I started having this issue. The second monitor is not something I use often jsut when on a long job so to speak I'll have a movie or something on the other screen!

I'm kinda thinking that it must be something in the Graphics or Display area tho, but I'm guessing blind there but don't know what else could be causing it....

______________________________________________________________________________________

What if I was to disable the 4790k's onboard Graphics and just leave the GTX970 active, could it be that they are wrestling for control??? I imagine the problem would be a lot more common if that was the case? Or visa versa disable the Nvidia display drivers and run on Intel's....... Maybe that would make my 970 pointless....Grrr what a headache!

Just as a further thought. Are both your monitors connected to GTX970 card & what sort of connections are you using, such as DVI, VGA or HDMI.

Hi, Yes indeed my monitor is connected to the 970 via HDMI, if I use the second monitor then I plug it into the DVI port. The audio always comes thru a soundbar connected to main monitor so there is no need for audio on the 2nd screen.

Not sure if you said this in the post above, but do away with the dual monitor and setup things as if you only had one. See what happens.

Hi bigmck,

Unfortunately that is what I have already done, I haven used/plugged in the second monitor for a little while now, certainly not on this install. So doesn't seem to be related to that, which is a shame as would be an easy fix!

It seems that Delayed Launcher is part of Intel's Rapid Storage Technology.

This website explains what is included in RST & when various parts are loaded. It also explains how to remove it if you wish.
