Problems starting Win 7 on custom built PC

Specs: Windows 7
Hey I have a custom built PC and everything was fine. However, now, when I boot the system, windows start up doesn't come up and I have to shut down and turn on my computer several times before windows start up actually comes up. What should I do?

The MSI motherboard stuff shows up on the monitor for a bit but when it comes up to the windows start up, sometimes it doesn't show up and I have to reboot it several times for it to work

Not much info to go by.... Please post system specs, any prior issues, any errors, what does the screen show?? Overclocked? These things will help.

Try "load optimized defaults" in BIOS, or "Load Defaults" and go back in and make appropriate adjustments. Post details.

processor: AMD 64 X2 5200 (3.00GHz)

GeForce GTS 250

I'm posting the issue with the same PC I'm using right now. I had to reboot it like 5x until the windows start up came up. I didn't really have any prior issue, it just started happening. Once windows start up comes up, everything works fine. I'm somewhat knowledgeable with computers but I'm not that great with the techy stuff. But, when I turn on my computer, it shows a pic of the MSI motherboard or something and then it comes to a screen that says scanning for hard drives and then it says no array found. A few seconds after this, the windows start up comes up. However in my case, I have to try it several times before it comes up.

some thing wrong with the build i would say that you have wrong settings.
Have you configured an array?
Is all hardware compatible?
Try clean install.

If it used the word "Array", the BIOS may be looking for a RAID array. You will need to go into your BIOS and carefully check all of the settings with a copy of your motherboard manual. You will need to make sure that any RAID configuration tools are disabled. If you are not comfortable with BIOS settings, you can try "Load Optimized Defaults" for your BIOS option and it may be able to fix it, but if not you may be setting it manually anyway.

Yes it does, it says no array is defined...
So I have to go into my BIO and check the settings?
