You could have a USB device connected and switched on and when you boot its trying to find it and boot from it
You could set BIOS to boot from hard drive to see if it fixes it

    try changing M/board battery
    If that is flat it may require waiting until enough power there to start and by the way I was not trying I answered according to your question. if you do not give enough info do not blame me In 80% of cases my answer would have fixed it *********

Why my acer aspire say system not found

The system cannot detect the hard disk drive. Before you start up, re insert the hard disk. Remove the memory card and clean it with soft cloth or tissue paper. After doing these..Start up your computer and see the results. If nothing happens, restart your laptop, hit F12 key & set the hard disk drive to first boot device then press the Enter key. wait till the OS comes up.

Windows XP starts then restarts over and over

Heaps of things can cause this - corrupt software, corrupt OS, virus, hard disk error. etc

First of all, I'd try turning the pc on, press the F8 key repeatedly until you get a list of options in dos mode text.
The first one listed will be safe mode.
use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration.
press enter, and, if you are in luck, your system will boot up just like normal.
This has fixed numerous pcs in the past.
If it works, I'd advise doing a checkdisk on the hard disk and running an AV scan, just to make sure.

If that fails, I'd again press F* repeatedly on boot, then select safe mode.
Wait ages, until you get a prompt with heaps of text, with yes to go to safe mode, no to go to system restore.
Select NO, and the system restore wizard will start... select a date previous to when the issue started, wait a while, and then test. if that goes thru, but the system still wont boot, i'd rerun system restore, but choose an earlier restore point.

If that fails, you'll need to boot from an XP disk, home or pro - the one that matches your OS - home or pro... boot from the cd, at first screen press r to repair via the recovery console.
select your os partition ( usually just press 1)
put in your admin password (usually just press enter, unless one is set)
and, when you can see the command line...
type in
chkdsk /r c:
and press enter.
this will check and repair, if possible, any faults on the hard disk.
once this completes, reboot and retest.

If that fails, you'll need to again boot from an XP disk, at the first screen press enter to install OS, press F8 to accept the licence agreement... then, if and ONLY if you get the option to press "r" to repair, press R, and allow it to repair the OS.

To reiterate, if you don't get the option to press R to repair STOP, or otherwise say goodbye to your files.
you will not get the option to repair if you either are using the wrong xp disk, ie home disk with pro OS, or vice versa, or if the hard disk is corrupt, or the OS is too badly damaged to be recognised...

Hope this info helps.

My Asus Eee pc 900 is very slow booting. I disconceted the cmos battery and this helped for a few weeks but am now back to taking a good 20 mins to boot, Now the cmos trick wont work. Anyone got any ideas...

Sounds like you disconnecting the cmos and it helping was just coincidence.The hard drive may be bad or your OS needs to be repaired or reinstalled.Alot of times when it does as you indicated the boot sector maybe corrupt or your hard drive has bad sectors where the boot info was written on the hard disk
