    At some point, my computer has lost the animation that should take place during bootup. Not sure when, because I usually don't hang around and watch during startup, but system restore and a repair install doesn't fix it. Does this portend some more substantial problem? Bootup seems normal, except there is nothing but a black screen with the mouse pointer visible during the time that I assume the animation should take place.

    TIA for any assistance.

    Hi Dave and welcome


    It isnt a portend of a future problem, in fact it may even boot a few seconds fastes

    Dave,

    I agree. in fact I usually go to msconfig and turn off the boot gui. Boot tab, No Gui Boot and change the timeout to a more manageable 3 secc rather than the default 30 sec. Helps boot quicker.

    Thanks guys. As long as the system is apparently intact, it doesn't matter if that animation plays or not. It puts my mind more at ease. I'm very happy with Win7, but then I was happy with Vista too. Never had an ounce of trouble with it.

    Thanks again
