Hi new system build with msi6712 amd 2600 512ram win xp pro everthing is ok but on boot up after the bios page there is a 15 second delay before the win xp logo appears the screen is blank and grey.Have set bios to quick boot and to only boot from hdd.Any ideas Thomas
I have seen many variations re screens on bootup. I have a grey/black screen (varies between 5 & 15 seconds) between Win XP Logo screen and User Logon screen. I have seen PCs with blue screens - same Win version with varying screen aspects!!
Microsoft state a reasonable time from switching on and arriving at desktop should be around 30 seconds - this is with all Win default programmes in Startup Folder set to start at bootup.
