Windows 7: White Dashes while Windows is Booting up, but Windows boots up fine.

White Dashes while Windows is Booting up, but Windows boots up fine.

Windows 7 Profesional 64-bit
CPU: AMD FX8120 3.10 8 Core Processor
RAM: 4 GB x2 (8 Gigs)
Video Card: EVGA GTX 550 Ti (nVida Geforce)

I built a custom computer last week. Whenever I boot up my computer. There is a White Dash in the top right hand corner of the screen. When Windows starts booting there are 3 Dashes in a row in the top left to middle of the screen. Windows boots fine though. Just wondering what it means. Any help would be nice. :)

Type "msconfig" in the run box and select the "Boot"

tab. If you have a check mark in the "No GUI boot" selection box, remove the check.
Click "apply" then "OK".
Close the msconfig window and reboot-that should take care of it.
