windows 7 starts in safe mode -after pressing F1 loads normally

Windows 7 Home Premium on vanilla PC. Phoenix bios runs memory test then computer stops in safe mode requiring F1 press. On pressing F1 Windows loads normally and all seems to run ok. Recent updates have been auto installed.


How can I get it to load automatically?
