When I turn on the power to my computer, it starts the boot process but won't boot up fully. It is stuck in a repeating cycle of restarting.
It is an Asus P5LD2 Deluxe that I assembled in 2006.
My computer was working fine when I disconnected everything about 2 months ago and carefully stored it in a closet during home renovations (painting, etc.) When I reconnected everything and started it up, I got a message saying "Overclocking Failure or Overvoltage Failure." I replaced the CMOS battery and reset the time and date in BIOS. When I restarted the computer the message no longer appeared, but then strange things began to happen:
I get one POST beep and then the Asus splash screen appears, then a blue screen for about 1/2 second, then a black screen saying IDE scan is taking place, then another black screen asking which OS I want to boot into (I only have Windows XP SP3 - malware free.) I select that and then the entire process repeats from the single POST beep.
When I go into the boot load screen, if I select Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking or Last Known Good Configuration, it doesn't boot into either of those. Instead the whole process starts over again with the single POST beep.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Geeks to Go (phillpower2) has helped me in the past, for which I am grateful. Thank you.
