My Tiny laptop keeps booting direct to setup any ideas why & how to stop it

Check that you don't have a sticky key on the keyboard, maybe a bit of a Choc-chip Hobnob stuck down the side of the key.

windows seteup? have you recently attempted a reinstall of the op system?

Another possibility is that the CMOS battery is dying, causing a BIOS setting to change. I don't know if this would cause the computer to boot into the BIOS setup screen, but, depending on the motherboard Tiny use, it could well happen
