When I startup my pc I have to press F1 before it starts . I am running windows xp home

This has nothing to do with windows, but is a cmos or bios issue. There should be an error something like, Time incorrect press F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup. Check the error and then press the correct key to enter setup. If the issue is the time, fix the time and date in set up. Most other issues will clear when you exit and save set up.

If you would like more information, please provide the exact wording of the error that you are pressing F1 to continue from.

This sounds like it might be some sort of virus or malware. Do you have anti-virus software installed? If you do, run a full scan of your system. Run it at least twice if nothing is found the first time. Windows doesn't typically tell you to press F1 to shutdown your computer.

If you don't have an anti-virus program installed, you can run the Windows Live One Care Safety Scanner from the web:

Check your Hardware configuration.  This usually happens when you tell the system BIOS that you have for example, a second floppy or Hard Drive, when you do not.  So it stops and asks you what to do next.


Hope that helps.

Installing new OS

Every laptop is accompanied by a preinstalled vesion of Windows, on the same hard disk in a hidden space. So if you get a prompt to restore your laptop to a previous state at the beginning of system startup, press the relevant key. If windows xp is your choice. and want to install it you may need follow the installation instruction from your system manufacturer. When the system starts up some information is displayed on the screen, like this: " Press F1 to enter setup" If you press the relevant key and enter the BIOS setup you can find the CPU temperature settings, shutdown temperature etc... This may not be you case. So I suggest you to get support from a qulified technician. Your system hardware should have some problem. (motherboard or hard disk is more prone to error) you can also try to find information from your system vendor's manuals and support website. All the best
