Windows 7: White Screen and Slow to Login all of a sudden

02 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit with SP1
White Screen and Slow to Login all of a sudden

For the past few days my Laptop has been very slow to load up once I have logged in. Bootup seems to be fine until the user selection page. I then select my user ID and then log in. Once I hit the submit button the screen goes white and it takes a while to load up the desktop.

The mouse is visible, but nothing responds. The Windows Key doesn't bring up the Start Menu or anything.

CTRL+SHIFT+ESC brings up Task Manager which shows nothing untowards.

On boot-up there is no peripherals installed on the laptop, just the Power Lead and WiFi is Active.

I have updates on Automatic and Windows 7 is Genuine Home Premium. Here are the PC Specs:

The first thing I would suggest is Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup. If that does not resolve the problem, go through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

warning   Warning
Some of the steps require that you open up your system, so before doing any of the re-seating and connection checking steps, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: Some steps in that tutorial involve removing the system case or system panels and can void your warranty!!!

The steps specifically related to the warning are steps 8, 10, and 11.
