make sure your drivers are updated. Use windows update to verify this.

Have you tried updating your video card drivers? Most drivers come with utilities that make the screen go blank for 1/2 a second which is normal, but not 10 minutes. Also make sure once the screen does appear that your refresh rate is set coreectly for your monitor. If it is LCD, 60Hz is the norm. For a CRT try 75Hz.

All drivers are updated, no change.  The timing is still at 10 minutes after logging into Windows.
