  2. Windows Won't Start - Infinite Spinning Circle of Dots

    No power failures or electrical storms. No changes made to the system (though when I shut down four hours earlier, it took a bit longer than usual, leading me to believe that an automatic update may have been installed). Was there an automatic update pushed
    out on March 1st?

    Yes, POST and BIOS appear to be fine. No warnings, beeps, or logged errors. The BIOS configuration appears to be unchanged. Drives are all recognized and the RAID 1 array shows both drives "functional."

    Again, I cannot get to the recovery menu. All attempts to power up this machine end up at the infinite spinning dots.

    Same thing with the Windows 10 installation DVD - spinning dots. I cannot get to the recovery menu or even re-install Windows.

    There's not much more detail I can provide. It's always the same:

    • Press the computer's power button
    • Computer displays routine startup BIOS status messages - no warnings; all SATA drives are recognized
    • Computer displays black screen with "Asus" logo and message at bottom of screen: "Please press DEL or F2 to enter UEFI BIOS setting."
    • Computer's USB keyboard and mouse are functional - I can press Del or F2 to enter BIOS
    • Computer displays RAID configuration with all drives status "functional"
    • Computer's USB keyboard and mouse are still functional - I can press Ctrl + I to enter RAID config utility
    • Black screen with "Asus" logo appears
    • Spinning dots appear under "Asus" logo
    • NumLock light on keyboard goes out
    • Pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del has no effect - keyboard appears to be non-functional
    • Nothing else happens - spinning dots keep spinning indefinitely

    The only change to this routine is that every third reboot produces the "Preparing Automatic Repair" message in Step #7, underneath the "Asus" logo. Otherwise, everything is the same. The routine continues from Step #8 to Step #11.

    And if I boot from my Windows 10 installation DVD, I'm given a message after Step #6: "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD....." Whether or not I press any keys, the routine continues without change from Step #7 to Step #11.

    After an automatic update I am constantly getting the spinning dots during streaming to Hulu. Pausing and freezing was bad before but this is horrible. I am not very good at computers and have read other info in the community about the dots but I don't
    understand most of what the solutions mean so if anyone has a suggestion please speak very simple computer dummy....

    Hi Cindy,

    It is possible that you experience having spinning dots while streaming a video due to having an intermittent Internet connection. To assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Does this issue happen only when streaming with Hulu or with other websites also?
    • Have you tried checking if your Internet connection is intermittent?

    We're looking forward to your response.
