My Start Up Menu always automatically comes on whenever I turn on the computer. I haven't configured it like that because I don't even know how.
How can I turn on the computer without getting startup menu automatically?

I am not sure. Some of my computers do that and some do. But does it really matter?

(your main harddrive, boot.ini [using X as example])

Start > run > "X:\boot.ini"


change timeout to 10 and add "/fastdetect" to your main operation system, unless you hit F8, it should not show up

Hi thanks for your help. But that didn't stop the startup menu comming up.
Here's what the boot.ini file says:

[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NoExecute=OptIn /fastdetect

Is this a problem that just began?

Do you have the Windows XP Pro bootable installation cd for this computer?

Try this:

go to Start->Run, type "msconfig" (sans quotes) and press enter. On the boot.ini tab, click the "Check All Boot Paths Button" and then change the Timeout to 0 seconds (that's zero). Reboot

Tell me if this leads somewhere or not: %systemroot%\I386

edit: same instructions as the boot.ini file, but replace that with this
