I went away for two days, leaving my PC powered on (not the screen, just the power at the plug socket). Since then, it won't fully load on startup. I get a message at the bottom of a lot of other info which states

Press F1 to run SETUP
Press F2 to load default values and continue

I'm on Windows XP. Is there anything I can do to prevent this happening?

Hi Janet
It's Usually The Result Of A Bad CMOS Battery..
Because the battery no longer saves the required CMOS startup settings, you're being asked to press F1 to continue.. I would start your troubleshooting process by replacing the battery.. It's cheap and easy to install yourself, specially if it's a desktop. See instructions in the link below:

How To Replace The CMOS Battery In Your PC(Procedures and Pictures)

Hope this helps.

I truly appreciate Bob, you exactly told the thing that I wanted to say. It is obviously a problem with the CMOS battery. I have nothing more to tell about it. I hope JanetC got it now.
