So, my computer is being weird all of a sudden.  When I boot it comes up just fine, I click my username and then the screen goes completely black with a moveable arrow.  It stays this way for maybe 15 minutes.

I once had this happen before and an iPod or external drive was causing the delay.  This machine doesn't have anything attached.
