1) Please post your full specs.

2) What exactly are you trying to do? Install Windows? Reinstall Windows? Repair Windows?

3) When you boot your computer, are you booting from a DVD or your hard drive?

Hi,

Is this happening when you try to boot your PC? If so, then there are two possibilities:

1. Your Master Boot Record (MBR) is damaged, or
2. You have a CD or DVD in your PC's DVD drive that is not bootable.

Can you tell us which one it is - you can check by removing any USB external storage devices, and maiing sure you have no CD's or DVD's in your CD/DVD drive. Can you also tell us whether you have an OEM Windows installation, or whether you have a Windows installation DVD?

Regards,
Golden
