McTavish, it sounds like the computer is booting normally. There is often a black screen on bootup before the desktop loads, if I understand what you say is happening. Windows is either loading something in the background, or is deciding which screen to use (even if you only have one). Reboot your machine, then check the Event Viewer to see if there are any errors on boot.

Also, have you installed any new software or updated any software recently?
