Not enough information.
System specs (all hardware).
How was Windows installed (retail disk or other) and what version.
Disable auto-restart in BIOS and report the error message(s) that it shows.
After you installed Windows, did you update Windows? Install all hardware drivers?
Install an antivirus program? Which?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Asrock motherboard by any chance? I believe that is the message you get when the hard disk can't be found. Check the cables to the hard disk and see if it is recognized in the BIOS.

It's possible that other m/bs give the same message but I've only heard of it on Asrocks.
