Hello i am new here. My windows XP pro machine is having problems. When i boot up my pc, after the bios and windows logo screen my screen goes black with no mouse cursor or anythink for 5mins. This problem is annoying and i have been trying to fix it for the past month. I have seen some solutions but have not worked. I think it has somethink to do with my network card or whatever because i always have to repair my internet connection when i log into windows. Can somebody help me

I found a solution, System - Advanced - Start up setting - edit and changed the time to 5 seconds and now its starts fast now. Is this reliable? and i also have a problem with wireless internet. When ever i log in, it never connect to internet so i have to click repair on the wireless internet icon. Is there a way to fix this?

try uninstalling the wireless drivers
from Start/Run/ devmgmt.msc /click ok
click the + on network adapters
uninstall wireless drivers
the drivers will be reinstalled after you restart our computer
that should create a new connection
hopefully that helps
