I'm started working on a cpu at work, where I was told the monitor was broken. What I found was that it was defaulting to xp setup and not just xp. I have no idea why when it goes to xp setup it goes blank, but just booting xp works, and windows is fine. But you have to select for it to boot up using xp and not xp setup. Unfortunately, the workers here don't understand how to do that, and further don't want the hassle of having to manually select xp. I can't figure out how to make xp the default, or how it went wrong. Any ideas? Thanks.

right click my computer
select advanced tab
Startup and Recovery
then under default operating system select the correct one.
You can also edit the boot item manually. Just make sure you delete the bad one.
IF you do manually edit, set the time underneath to 1 second.. or even 0. If not they be prompted to choose from a list of one choice.
