    Computer wont boot properly

    I came home from work today and turned on my computer and it got the infinite loading screen problem.

    I can not get into safe mode, if i shut it off to restart it 3 times it goes into a mode of tuening on and off 3 times very shortly then goes into automatic recovery where it then goes to a black screen with a cursor.

    Can anyone help?

  2. PC wont boot up (No POST, No Video)

    I recently installed a new Asus M5A99X Evo r2.0. The motherboard green LED lights up and the case and cpu fans spin. But there is no video when its hooked up to my monitor.

    Steps that i have tried:
    "No POST", "system won't boot", and "no video output" troubleshooting checklist

    Made sure all connections are properly connected.

    Flashing the CMOS

    Tested the PSU

    Followed all steps in the user manual

    If there are any links that you guys can point me to or suggestions that could help it would be highly appreciated. Thank you

    Comp wont boot..

    i would guess video card. I dont know how a PC with a bad CPU would behave but i assume it wont boot at all. My advice would be this, disconnect everything from the board but the PSU, 1 stick of RAM, GPU and try to run it. If it still wont boot up try putting GPU in another slot or try another stick of RAM. If that wont help use known good components (RAM, GPU, PSU) and see if it will boot. Also make sure heartsink is seated properly as the person above said.

    Hi Ron,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. I regret the inconvenience caused to you. Let me help you.

    • Do you see any error code or error message on the screen?

    I suggest you to perform a Clean Boot in Safe Mode and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Start computer in safe mode and then perform clean boot.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode

    • When you hit the power button in Windows 8.1 (through Charms Bar), hold down the
      Shift key when clicking the Restart button.

    • The next screen will present you with three options. Click

    • Next, hit Advanced options followed by
      Windows StartupSettings from the next screen.

      Your PC will now be rebooted to enable the advanced parameters, which include Safe Mode as well. Once it restarts, you’ll get nine options whereby the following commands apply:

    • F4 for Safe Mode

    • F5 for Safe Mode with Networking

    • F6 for Safe Mode with Command Prompt

      For more information you may refer to the article mentioned below.

      Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)

      Step 2: Perform clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

      To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

      Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

      How to perform a clean boot in Windows

      Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.
    Check if it helps.

    I hope the issue will be resolved. If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us again. We will be happy to assist you accordingly.

    Thank you.
