:thumbsup: After a "lost" reinstallation of Windows, now every time I turn on the computer I have three seconds to choose if I want to start with Windows XP or I want to install Windows XP. Is there a way to avoid having to choose every time?

Click on start, then control panel, and then double-click on System.

When the system screen comes up, click on the Advanced tab, then click on the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.

When that window opens, click on the edit button. THis will open a notepad with some text in it...copy the entire contents of that notepad as a reply to this topic and I will tell you what to remove to get rid of that option

Why not just uncheck the box that says Time to display a list of operating systems? If you do that you won't get that window when you startup. :thumbsup:

Did that come from a 19" monitor (the screen shot)?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

No 17" monitor, why did it take a long time to load or something? :thumbsup:
