    I have a Dell laptop running Windows XP Home. Everytime I boot the Advanced boot options menu comes up. Have tried everything on the menu including Last Known Good Configuration. How does one stop this from happening and go back to a normal boot screen?

    Thanks

    Is it the full Advanced Options menu with all 11-12 items, or the short one that also says Windows Failed to start?

    If it's the full menu, my first guess would be that the F8 key is stuck.
