I have a new HP laptop dv6226us with Vista Home premium pre-loaded, and 1 Gb
ram. All of the Vista updates are installed. I noticed during the boot
process that the screen goes bright white for 10 seconds. The boot up
screens are as follows: black screen with Microsoft scroll bar, black screen
with Vista logo, blue-green Vista welcome screen for about 20 seconds, white
screen for about 10 seconds, then desktop background. It seemed that this
started happening after I loaded Ipod software. Is this going to be my new
standard?
