XP "Please Wait" message on start up

  Bill77 00:17 05 Apr 2004

I have had XP Pro. installed on my PC for some time and suddenly I am getting a "Please Wait" message every time I boot up. The PC starts normally then the pop up message appears and the desktop fades to black and white, after about 10 seconds the message disappears and the desktop returns to normal colour, everything else works fine. This is an annoyance more than anything but I would like to get rid of it. Thanks Bill77

It sounds like it is setting the desktop up have you changed any settings?Mine does this when i alter the Style of xp colours.Try looking in display properties and change the scheme see if that cures it.

Mine does the same thing if I boot up with the XP CD in the drive.

Check the CD ROM drive for disks.
