    Ok.....when I boot up, I have to go thru 5 screens before I get to the welcome screen....

    1: NEC....this has the bios access options on it

    2:CASE OPEN....a serviceman added some memory...it seems that my computer has taken exception to being exposed to some fresh air...lol

    3:SELECT THE OPERATING SYSTEM....this one has just appeared...????

    4:NEC...again!.....no apparent use, just cosmetic...

    5:MICROSOFT....the usual

    FINALLY, we get to the welcome screen!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

    The bios options are obviously neccessary...I can also live with the Microsoft branding, to avoid them having a tantrum....
    BUT...do I need the others?....& if not how do I get rid of them?

    Please keep it very simple...I,m the ultimate computer dummy!

    You should only see the BIOS menu when you depress F2 when booting. So you need to check your BIOS settings and disable it showing twice when booting. Make sure the case is closed properly to stop the next issue. To stop the operating system question you need to clean up the BOOT.INI file and remove extra items.
