Windows 7: Notebook stuck for 2 mins on black screen before booting up

If there is an option to contact HP support, then the disc was not made by the method I mentioned. The Microsoft Win 7 System Repair Disc has absolutely no options which reference a particular manufacturer.

Regardless, your answer has answered my question.

Go back into your bios and put booting from the HD as top priority, incidentally 2nd should be DVD.

Problem gone?

I guess HP supressed the option you mentioned, because when I did what you said the system recovery disc creation thing came up, and I guess instead of being made by Microsoft this one is made by HP. I'll try to search for the Microsoft one again.

About what you suggested, HD was already on top of the list, I just put DVD after so I could load from it. That setting doesn't make a difference on the long waiting time. Like I said, it seems the black screen stays there, and then only after 2 minutes the notebook begins its normal processes, like reading from BIOS, etc.

CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

START | type System Repair | Enter key | Create Disc button



Boot into your bios.
Where the boot order is shown, would you write that order down and type it into your next post.


I just need to make sure that I understand.

Are you getting these options? System Repair Disk

If so try running Startup Repair a few times.

Then test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes to stress it. Then swap sticks, check for debris in slots.

Next test your HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

Have you reset your BIOS to defaults? Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. Then see what settings are available for Quick Boot and adjust them to check.

That's what I did mate, but like I told you, on HP notebooks if we type this it opens up another manager, probably one by HP, which makes the repair disc boot into an HP screen.

The order right now shows CD/DVD drive then Internal HD, because I needed to boot from the DVD, but the original order was the inverse.

Thanks for the help mate. Nope, I didn't get those options, like I said above. But now you posted a screenshot of the direct link I'll search for it and make that DVD, and then I'll try your other steps.

Thanks!!!

It may be easier to download and burn to DVD or write to flash stick using the links in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

For as weird as it might seem, I didn't have time yet to sit down and try to fix the notebook. But reading once again your suggestion I came up with the same doubt I was having before: I thought about reinstalling Windows on the first place, but as the black screen comes up before the time that it seems the computer actually begins reading the BIOS and loading up, I'm unsure whether it would be effective. I still get the black screen whether I boot on the HD or on the DVD, so I don't see how it would make a difference.

I hope I was clear

How about putting MemTest86+ onto a CD AND then booting from that CD?

Just as a way to test if you can boot from a CD.

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Or you can go to another 64 bit Win 7 system (makes no difference which version of Win 7), THEN
make a SYSTEM REPAIR DISC,
boot from the SYSTEM REPAIR DISC.

Here is how to make a System Repair Disc:
