Windows 7: Windows logo no longer appears during startup . .

Windows 7 premium 64 bit
Windows logo no longer appears during startup . .

i've had my computer for about 2 months now. running windows 7 premium and recently when i boot up my computer, after it displays the bios menu, it skips the windows logo screen and goes straight to the welcome screen. i havent noticed any issues other then this however i did notice strange noises when i booted up and first noticed the logo was missing . . . i've checked the menus and different options to turn off the logo but there all set to display it so im not sure what the deal is. i ran the system file checker and that came back clean aswell. could it be a gpu issue or a motherboard issue? i did install skyrim recently and it reinstalled directx11 and made a new microsoft c++ file. im thinking that could be it too. other then that im pretty much out of ideas. there was a few other programs i installed too. evga precision, fraps, nvidia system tools, nvidia system monitor. i restored my system to a point before installing these programs so it cant be those but it hought id add em to the list anyway just to be safe. i didnt however restore to before getting the new C++ file

I,ve already toggled that on and off to no avail . . . the boot screen is completely black instead of having the windows logo show up . . . it was working normal until a day ago and im not even really sure when it actually started.
