Do you close down your applications first before shutting down? If not, give that a shot. If that fails try closing things down in the System Tray (icons by the clock). Try these things first and if that doesn't work, I have a few more things to try.

    1) If you use a screen saver, try leaving it off.



    2) Control Panel -> Display -> Settings (tab) -> Advanced (button) -> Troubleshooting (tab). And turn down the Hardware acceleration. And see if that works.
