Thought. When this occurs, by chance would the drive have a cd/DVD in place?

If so, poota is going through a search startup phase, it finds the cd and presumes it is a prog asking to start.

My poota does this sometimes when External HD in line, even on occassion sets me up for a crash "*******".

So remove, as I do with Ex HD.

Hope this helps?

Hi,

You have nothing to worry about as this is normal operations. All the computer is doing is checking drives and reading any disks that maybe in the drive.
If there is no disk in the drive the LED indicator light will still come on but should resume Windows quicker.


Regards.

    Hi,

    Other problems can be caused by your video drivers.

    Right click on computer, select Manage from the list and then click on Device Manager.

    A list will populate, when its loaded look down the list for Display Adapters and click on the + icon or > icon next to it.
    Highlight the adapter by left clicking on it, then right click and try to update the driver. If it's says the best driver is installed right click on it again and this time select uninstall. Write down the manufacturer's make and model.

    Restart your computer and let Vista re-detect the drivers and install them.

    If you have anymore problems post back with the make and model of your display card.

You need a Windows DVD -- Same version as you have -- Vista / Win 7, 32-bit / 64-bit.

A local PC repair should be able to burn you a copy for a small fee.
