Start up problems with Sony Vaio VGN-A517S
\015 I am currently pulling my hair out re this start up problem with my Vaio.On booting the initial windows xp screen comes up then the screen goes into a black - black - blue screen change until it comes to my login page.Once this is done it will take me to my main screen however it has to go black for a few seconds prior to loading again.The initial start up takes c 10 seconds or more but is becoming frustrating.Running xp home.I have attempted via various means to adjust the start up but it all comes back to the same damned thing.......can you please help?Cheers,Patrick.ps once the machine is running it is fine.Shutdown - no probs just the start up.\015
