Hello, this is my first post! I need help regarding a problem with my computer, hope someone can solve this problem for me!
Whenever I start my computer, it hangs for 20-30 seconds before the BIOS screen loads and then after that, Windows loads. So first, a screen giving information on my graphics card (9600gso) loads...then the screen goes black with only a underscore (_) on the top left, stays like this for 20-30 seconds...then the bios screen loads (intel graphic, "press f2 to enter setup" thing)...then windows loads.
I run Vista ultimate (32bit) on a c2d processor with 2GB ram. My vista install dvd came preloaded with vistaloader for activation, and i thought that was causing the startup delay. I unsintalled that using VOATKTools, but still startup is so slow. I suspect either my video card (9600gso) or my tv tuner causes the problem now.
Anybody have any suggestion on what I should do? Please let me know if i have missed any information regarding the problem.
