Windows 7: Window starts up then turns to blackscreen with cursor after crossfire

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Window starts up then turns to blackscreen with cursor after crossfire

I've been having longer the normal windows load time after getting my second 6950 in my comp. I noticed that it starts up then goes into blackscreen with cursor then takes another 5 seconds to completely load into windows. Im thinking its something to do with adding another video card as i haven't experienced this before.

My Windows is installed on my Intel 320 80 GB SSD. Game performance stays the same. just the load up time for windows has slowed down a lot

Since you don't have any responses, I'll offer up a possibility (based upon my VAST 2 weeks of experience with windows 7). I had a similar issue on my new PC after an issue with an external drive. I'm pretty sure that the black screen with delayed startup indicates a driver problem. I think that would make sense based upon the fact that you just added a new card. Might try reloading the driver.
