Hello,

Try pressing 'windows key' and 'R' at the same time then type msconfig and press enter.

Click on the boot tab. This tab should show the operating systems listed at bootup. You can post back with the list, delete any other entry except the one you are using or reduce timeout.

- Let us know how it goes.
