I use a Dell Inspiron N5110 Core i5, Windows 7 XP, and i'm having a pretty annoying problem.
"all of a sudden"; a week or so ago (a few days before this issue), I downloaded the most recent drivers for my computer off of the Dell site, according to their detection tool. I don't know if this will even be relevant, just throwing it in there.
When i turn on my computer, it can take a few minutes for the login screen to show up, or sit at a black screen with nothing but my cursor visible after i have logged in. If one of those don't stop me i have a very long wait as my desktop loads, with the icons flashing from their regular images to a white page image. (I've gotten a DSD-260/2736 (not responding) window that pops up a few times, the number changes.)
After the 'loading' animation on my cursor has gone away, if i make it to this point, i can open a program such as task manager, the simple volume adjustment interface, or google chrome etc, and it will slowly run for a minute before becoming unresponsive along with the rest of my computer and i am forced to do a hard restart.
The most frustrating part is that sometimes i can boot up and it works properly. After 1-50 tries it'll power on and run without an issue all day. I've had no luck searching for similar problems.
If there's any more information i can give just say so, thank you in advance to anyone with some insight on this issue.
