Windows 7: Unlock/Log in delay

Unlock/Log in delay

So I installed Windows 7 over the weekend and love it, it's awesome, I fixed any initial problems I had etc etc.. but there's one issue that I cannot figure out. My laptop is asleep rather than off most of the time, so when I open the lid it turns on and up comes my user log in.

That's all fine, but after I type my password in and hit enter the screen goes black for a solid 10-15 seconds. This happens every time, and always for the same length of time. It also does not matter whether I am logging in or just unlocking, I still get a long period of black screen with no activity.

What can I do to troubleshoot a problem like this? Video card drivers are installed, and I'm in single display mode (don't have an external monitor) so I can't think of a reason for Windows to be doing this.

Thanks for any ideas.

Are the drivers up-to-date? Where did you get them, Windows Update of the manufacturer's site?

They're off Windows Update, I could not find compatible drivers on nVidia's site (Windows 7 64 + GeForce Go 6150)..

Try installing Vista x64 drivers.
If it doesn't work, uninstall all nVidia drivers and let Update find them automatically.

It's the same deal; nothing for the Go 6 series, only 6 series desktop.. No 'Go' processors are listed if you check under the release notes for the 6 series drivers in this pic..

Minor update, it occurred to me that when I installed Windows 7 I put the chipset drivers on after the video drivers, so I uninstalled both in safe mode and used Driver Sweeper to clear what was left. Then I put them back on in the right order, chipset first then vid card (again using the Windows Update video drivers, still have not found an alternative)

Unfortunately this did nothing to help.

I also wanted to mention that in safe mode the computer goes straight from the log in screen to the desktop, without 15 seconds of inactivity.

Hi guys,

Just installed Windows 7, very happy since I managed to find drivers for my Nvidia 6150 and the rest..by just activating windows update:-) didn't know that would do much but voila I enjoy my Nvidia instead of originally given standard display. So, to keep it short just run UPDATE!
