no icon on bootup screen

I wasnt quite sure where to post this but when i start my machine and the "starting windows" screen comes up there is no win7 icon on the screen or anything. I just get a black screen with "starting windows" written at the bottom. Ideas? I'm not dual booting by the way.

Hello WhiteWolf,

You might see if you have the default background image from the yellow TIP box in the tutorial below. If not, then you may be able to use the tutorial to manually set that, or a one you want instead, as the background image.

Log On Screen - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Doing a Repair install should restore the boot screen for you.

No BIOS splash screen on bootup
This is a weird one. I was running a NVidia 220GT PCIe video card on the PC listed in my system specs. I just swapped that for a ZOTAC NVidia GT 640 PCIe card. Now on boot up I don't see my BIOS splash screen. It's just a blank black screen with one beep and then the Windows 7 loading screen. I can...

Hi, I have a friend who built my PC and installed Windows 7 Ultimate on it. He's since moved away so I've lost my tech guru! Thing is, when he was installing it all he may have done (or not done) something that stops the DOS screen from showing during bootup (that would be black screen with the...

Screen resolution during bootup
I was trying to reproduce the nice behavior I had on my old Sony laptop (running XP, but that's not the point). Namely, the boot-up screens - either the animation or the text-style info if the animation is disabled - would show in *their* native resolution (not sure if that was 640x480 or 800x600)...
