I'll be as concise as i can with this.
XP SP3 32bit.
AMD Duo 5000.
For no apparent reason at all, i am confronted with the windows startup option screen every time i boot up.
This started about 2 weeks ago and if i hit enter or let the timer expire windows boots normally.
Starting from last good config also boots normally.
All virus/malware scans (safe mode) are clean.
All hardware in device manager is ok except for Realtek HD audio in Sounds (X) on board audio, disabled over two months ago for Soundblaster card.
Double checked Soundblaster installation. Works fine.
No other major hard/software changes.
Has my XP just lost the plot, or is there a way to bypass/reduce the timer/reg edit the unsuccessful screen as it's really starting to become very very annoying.
Any thoughts or ideas greatly welcome.
