hi , whenever i startup my pc , it always comes up with the black screen which says if you want to start windowns xp normally or in other ways.

it only stays on for about 2 seconds then carrys on normal.

(it never used to do that)

go the Control panel/system/device manager
Check the device drivers -look for any Yellow wotsits,- uninstall and reinstall any that show yellow.
It is a driver corruption problem almost certainly

ive checked device manager and everything seems to be working propery.

i updated bios a while ago , could it be anything to do with that , although that all went ok.
