When I turn on the computer in the morning it takes at least 1hr. before the black screen turns into my lovely desktop and I can start working normally. Can you tell me why it takes so long and how to resolve this issue?. All windows updates are current and I have disabled all unnecessary win services and startup items. I thought that would make it go faster, but it has had no effect.
I was so pleased when I turned my computer off and it re-started right away.....However, when I shot it down for the night and re-start the next day, I had to wait another hour or so before my desktop comes on.
I hear the windows startup music, but there is nothing for me to do, I can't start up on safe mode because the screen is black all the time, until an hour later when the desktop appears.
I have disabled all startup programs, disabled all unnecessary services (per list) and still have the same problem. I have also disabled antivirus.
I have reloaded everything to see if that made a difference but nothing changes.
