Default Long black screen after Windows XP Logo

Here is the scenario, whenever i bootup, could be a restart or a just turn the computer on, it boots perfectly until the Windows XP Logo screen, after that screen, there is a black screen for like 10 - 20 minutes then my desktop loads. Anyone have any ideas as to whats going on or what to do ?

Must be a computing error

I get a less severe version of this with some video drivers. Try and find either an older or newer version of them, and see if that works. Alternately, go to Start > Ruun > "msconfig" *Enter* > Startup and uncheck anythign that does not look important.

XP Repair install

Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, read this Warning#2!
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
