Specs: Windows 7
The Dell 990 boots to the windows splash screen, but then the screen goes black. Nothing happens for abou 40-50 minutes and then it just comes up. Everything workrs normal after that. I have checked the configurations and it is set to ATA . Is there some other diagnostic that may be running? Any suggesions would be helpful

You haven't given us enough info about your system. I assume it worked well at one time? It could be that you have a lot of crapware installed that's loading at startup, or it could be your system is infected with malware/spyware/viruses. What have you tried so far to fix it?

Could be worth a quick run with MalwareBytes freebie to see if it unearths anything:

If it doesn't find anything of any consequence then most likely we can forget the infection idea. Good product, which almost always finds them but is not always able to fix the tricky ones.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
