Slow Boot screen, No virus
So after about 2 months of this, I am yet again asking for help. When i turn my PC on, after it boots past all the proper menus, and after the windows XP logo is done, it hangs on a black screen for sometimes 20 seconds, sometimes almost a minute. Its even sat there for several minutes, thus forcing me to restart the computer. I am 99.99% sure that it isn't a software or virus problem. Why? Because i have scanned with AVG 8.0, Ad-aware, Avast!, and Spybot S&D. I regularly defrag, and run CCleaner a lot. I also noticed the same this with my other HDD running Vista. It will sit on a black screen after the windows logo (just the bars for vista) is done loading. It isn't short enough for me to ignore, things like this bother me.
I did some thinking, and came up with this. After i bought a GX2, i didn't run driver sweeper to delete all the old files. I haven't ever done this, even after installing about 4 different forceware versions. BUT, when i do run driver sweeper in safe mode, it does nothing. I set it so it would "Prompt" a restart after removing the nvidia files. I selected the nvidia (not chipset) and ran & cleaned. Nothing happened, i bring it back up and lo and behold, there are the intact nvidia driver files. So any help of why this doesn't work would be great.
Besides that, i haven't done anything hardware wise ever. I installed vista 3 weeks ago, and the problems were occurring before this too.
