Re: computer always boots into the start up menu
Hi. I'm running windows 98 and today while booting windows I got a F8 screen without pressing F8. It has several options but no matter which one you choose it takes you to another screen which says error you need to restart your computer. I can get around it by actually pressing F8 while booting but I'd like to know how to get rid of this problem. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
