At start up of Windows Vista my screen goes black or freezes operating system. But after a while laptop will respond and work properly.  Has anyone else experience this issue.

I would install your graphic driver or update it and see if the delay remains. In all likelihood i would guess you need an updated driver for vista. If that is not the case your profile could be corrupt and maybe try logging in as a different user to verify.
