I have a HP Pavilion g7-1320dx with Windows 7 that has been idle for 2 years due to a broken screen. I replaced the screen, and when I press the power button, it lights up but I have no screen for about 10 minutes, at which point the message "Press esc to pause startup". After another 5 minutes or so, Windows finally loads and everything works great. No issues in device manager

Let it boot, them get an elevated command prompt, and run sfc /scannow

Ran sfc/scannow...no issues.

Defrag the drives next. Then make certain all updates have been applied! If you must, keep it booted over night to upload all of the updates.

I did that...could the cmos battery be an issue? The computer keeps its time

Cmos does not cause slow load.
