but I have an hp laptop that is running vista and recently
when I enter my password to log in and after the screen says
welcome the laptop screen goes blank (gray-black) and my mouse
pointer is still shown. After a few minutes windows loads normally
and I can use the laptop with no problems. I have tried turning off
some of the programs that start automatically with windows and this
has not helped speed up the process and I am not sure what to do.
