    what type of computer is it, and what is the operating system???

    do you mean the POST ?? (like do you see windows loading, but nothing at the very start where it would usually tell you what to press to get into the BIOS)

    wow thats a bit weird,

    possible problems:

    -graphics card
    -windows xp


    um you can give hp a call they have much better people then microsoft, and are much more helpful

    but if the computer boots fast its not that big of a deal is it???

    also try hibernating and see if you see something when it start to come out of hibernation

    when it first boots up press f11 and then you can try a PC recovery, most hps and compaqs have this feature.
