Blank screen at startup?

I've been getting this screen when I turn on my computer, it lasts for 2-5 min before Windows starts up. Is this a sign of hard drive failure?

Sounds like a dying hard-drive to me. Make sure you don't have any usb devices plugged in during startup. If you have a spare thumb-drive handy I would download YUMI, then install Ultimate Boot CD on it. Boot off the thumb-drive and see if the hard-drive passes the diagnostics test.

I'm an idiot. Turns out it was the USB receiver for my wireless headset.

Yup, infamous USB

Change boot options so you can leave it plugged in and not care (theyre in the bios)
