I am running windows XP home on my Hp laptop. When I
turn the computer on the Microsoft Screen comes on.
Then it has a screen that somes up after that, that
has the word welcome on it.
This seemes like it takes for ever to get over with.
Most likley it only takes 30 to 45 seconds, but I'm
an impatient person.
Is there any way of skipping these two screens,so
my computer comes on faster.

I could be wrong, but I don't thing removing the welcome screen will do anything to decrease the time it takes your system to boot up. You probably have some background services that can be disabled or set to manual so they won't be loading at every boot. Same with any software you've installed that starts with Windows. If you don't need it until you use it, you should turn them off too. That will make XP boot up faster. The welcome screen is just something pretty to look at while all that's going on in the background.
