I have to choose operating system everytime I turn on my computer.

It's getting pretty annoying, and If I don't pick the choices. It'll picked the highlight choice by itself, then the blue screen pops up. >_>

I don't know much about computer's so here I come needing the professional help .

Here's a picture that will give you a idea of whatever I'm talking about :x

Thank you.

Hello Winnay.

Go into control panel then system. Choose advanced and go into the settings of startup and recovery. Choose a default operating system (XP Home) and uncheck "time to display operating systems". Apply and reboot.

The blue screen may indicate something more serious, like a master boot record fault. But try the above first.

If the above doesn't work, go into the properties of your hard drive and run error checking.
