BIOS/setup screen on laptop startup

  mikegm7 14:05 29 Jul 2008

A couple of times recently my HP laptop has not been loading into windows. Instead the BIOS/setup screen loads. I have set it to default settings-save and exit and then loads into windows. However, today again on startup it went to BIOS/setup screen, only this time whatever I do nothing is reverting it to windows. I did replace the hard drive a couple of years back, but the machine is a good 8 or more years old.(XP) Anybody any ideas?
I have also changed the boot order so that I could possibly boot from cd, but it doesn't even want to do this??
