Smile Turning on the computer..strange OS load

Hello. After turning on my computer I get a screen that prompts me with F1 or to press F2 to resume loading of my operating system.

Then I get a screen that prompts me to press enter the start windows normally..then I will get the windows vista password screen.

Is there a way after turning on the computer to simply have the computer load the windows vista password screen?

Thanks for any and all responses

Try another new battery for your cmos (bios) It's a coin battery located on the motherboard, #2032 is the replacement anywhere they sell batteries

also check your hard drive, You can get a diagnostic .iso file to burn a boot disk from the hard drive manufacture
