Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

this happened to me when i did a bios update on my GIGABYTE motherboard using their liveupdate tool called @BIOS, after it said it updated the bios i restarted and the Windows loading screen took about 2 minutes and then it went to my desktop which was black screen with my mouse curser on it for about 30 seconds, then it finally loaded the desktop.

The way i fixed it was to go to recovery in safe mode and restore to the point before i updated the BIOS, and that fixed it.
