  2. Choosing an operating system on Startup of Pc

    Hi

    Thanks for all the previous advice to cure the above problem but still it persists.

    When I start the pc I get the option to choose an operating system with a 30 sec countdown where it then selects windows 10 (default) by itself.

    This has now been happening for about 2 weeks and previously just booted straight to windows 10.

    I would have thought there must be a way to return the pc to just boot to windows 10 as it did previously.

    As mentioned all the suggestions previous have come back all ok with no faults.

    Unfortunately the most recent advice below wont let me do it as it tells me I have to add a value of between

    3 and 999. Also the Pc is already set to windows 10 as default.

    Again would be grateful for help or advice

    Thanks

    Eddie

    boot tab.

    4. There, you will get the different Operating systems

    Help choosing a new case

    Don't really know how to help you. You are being vague. Here is what I would do. Choosing a case is aesthetics first. Shop NewEgg and list the cases you like and list them. Members will suggest the best choice from your selections.
