I've had an issue with very slow restarts where once I get the Windows Start screen I then get a black screen where the monitors go to sleep then awake and then very slow Windows Welcome screen, sometimes another black screen with cursor and then slow to the desktop.
I suspect this may be related to Nvidia drivers for my Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT. I'm considering deleting all Nvidia programs and drivers and reloading. I've checked the system memory with the Windows 7 memory checker. I've checked the BIOS settings and everything is as it should be. I could do a recovery BIOS update just to leave no stone unturned, but I don't expect that to accomplish anything. I've checked the Event Viewer System Log and Application Log and I'm not getting any errors or warnings other than a warning that my magicJack driver didn't load, but that happens late in the system start sequence and it must load eventually, because the magicJack starts.
Google searches don't yield any solutions. I've seen a few threads on this forum, but they didn't seem to apply, because I don't have the system configured to wake from Nvidia network. I can't really recall when it started doing this very slow start with monitor sleep sequence, because I usually just tolerate these types of issues for a while before I've finally had enough.
Does anyone have any suggestions other than reloading Nividia drivers and software? I don't know if that drill will lead to success or not.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
