x300 startup issue - boots weird

2008-10-14, 5:28 AM

im a new x300 user with Windows XP

when i got my x300, it boots a little weird. After the blackscreen with the dot (the 2nd screen, it comes after the lenovo one), the xp logo doesn't load right away, it just flashes like 5 times. its almost like its warming up or something.

Then the progress bar under the xp logo starts moving. This happens everytime.

I've restored it to factory setting, then updated everything and it was fine for awhile until it happened again.


I sent it in because of this and because it froze a couple of times, but after they replaced the systems board, the startup issue remains.


Has anyone seen this before or know anything?

It would help alottt.


ps. pc doctor shows normal
