    Hi Experts,

    Thanks to all for your advice. I have a computer that I truly enjoy!

    I want to see if I can make one more tweak!! I searched all the forums and there was not an answer.
    I have a Gateway 4620D desktop. Is there any way I can bypass the American Megatrends F1 boot screen on start up? I get the Gateway welcome screen, then the Amer Meg screen comes up and I have to press F1 to boot to XP. Can I bypass it?
