While booting up HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop screen goes black for about 8 minutes before windows startup screen appears. This has never happened before. No changes have been made to computer. What is causing this?

Could be virus / malware, corrupt files, bad hard drive, bad driver... any number of issues. Have you run chkdsk?

Yes, I've run the chkdsk, my anti-virus, updated the drivers. I don't know what else to do.
