i just done a fresh install of a new hard drive in my sons comp, it was working fine untill he got to ( adjusting ) resolution; ie; and whatever else...now when you turn comp on it starts boot sequence then stops at press f1 to continue or delete to enter setup... if you press f1 it goes to windows, and works fine... i need help to get it to go strait to windows without the f1 to startup...any help greatly appreciated..

There has to be more to the message, the F1 will tell you what it is looking for.

YOu may need to get into the bios and give it auto for the disk, or if it is a Dell you need to turn of chassis intrusion in security within the bios.

mfdnsc,, you think i could do repair w/ xppro disk , and this would clear up the problem? it will start windows as soon as you hit f1 , so it must be a startup or directory file missing.....
