Toshiba Laptop running XP pro (recent downgrade from Vista Home). 1GB ram.

When first powering on, XP boots normally then shows my wallpaper, mouse works and ctrl-alt-del brings up task manager, but there is no Start menu or icons on desktop for about 90 seconds - 2minutes. No HDD activity during this delay at all.

Then after the 90 seconds or so there is HDD activity and the Start menu and Icons appear, everything runs normally after this 90 second delay.

What's happening and can I fix it myself.

Did you install all the Toshiba drivers for XP on your model of laptop? Sounds like it is looking for something it can no longer find. Check device manager to see if all hardware is installed.
