I am running a wireless XP Pro, SP3 laptop. I run a 2003 server windows domain. Normally when I start a computer it runs "applying computer settings" then "applying security policy" then "running startup scripts"

This machine goes past the 1st 2 steps really fast (doesn't do it). and then correctly runs the startup scripts portion. I know it is connecting to the network since the startup scripts are run off a network share and then complete successfully. I am then also able to login to the domain. BUT if I make group policy changes on the domain controller, apply them, reboot the laptop, it doesn't apply the changes because it is skipping "applying computer settings" I can't determine why it is skipping that on startup.
