Bummer, this is called "bootlooping." Pull the battery and keep it out for 10 seconds, put it back in and hold the power, menu and volume up keys until you get into the recovery screen. The touchscreen doesn't work here, you need to use the volume keys to navigate the options and the back arrow key to select them. You can factory reset here, this should fix your software. It will also wipe all your data off the phone, which sucks. Stuff on your SD card will be fine, and hopefully your contacts were backed up with your gmail account.

I would request your to perform the hardreset on the phone by following steps:-
Press and hold the combination of the Power key+ volum up key+ Menu key when the phone is off. When it enters the boot loader mode of teh phone use the volume key to scroll --> select wipe data and factory reset --> select yes and wait till the phone reboots.

How do I get to the BIOS setup on a android Motorola A 955


Typically Androids don't have a BIOS. But what the do have is a boot loading screen. there are a few different methods to access the boot loading screen for Androids.

First step for all Methods

  1. Method 1: Press and hold the Up direction button on the D-pad of the phone (Up direction button is toward the screen), and press the Power button until the screen lights up.
  2. Method 2: Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Camera button, and press then Power button until the screen lights up.
  3. Method 3: Press and hold the Volume Down button, and press then Power button until the screen lights up.


But if you are still insisting on a Bios you can download a Bios emulator off Google Play Store
Hope this helps

What does it mean when android robot is laying on its back


I am giving you an example with an Motorola Tablet. I'd try clearing your cache partition, you can get to the android recovery with your buttons.
1. Turn tablet off. You may need to use two hands in this process to press and hold buttons properly.




2. Turn on the tablet with power button, wait a full 2 seconds from the time the tablet starts showing the red Motorola logo, then press and hold the down Volume key. (you should not hold down the power button after it turns on and logo appears)




3. "Android Recovery" will appear on top of screen if timing is done correctly. Release volume button. (if you continue to press volume down at that message, the message will cycle through "RSD, Fastboot, and back to Android Recovery. Make sure message states Android Recovery before you go to next step). If stuck at a RSD protocol or Fast boot screen, reboot the tablet by holding power button then pressing the volume up).




4. While screen states "Android Recovery", Press volume up button, the screen will say "Entering Android recovery mode" and a few seconds later an Android robot graphic will appear alone on the screen. Release buttons.




5. Hold down power button and then press the volume up key together to see the Android Recovery screen menu selections.




6. Use the volume buttons to move up and down through selection in this menu.




7. Using the volume down button, scroll down to "Wipe data/factory reset"




8. Tap Power hard key to select option.




9. Scroll down to select "Yes, delete all user data".




10. Tap the power button to select. Wiping and formatting data will take a few minutes.




11. You will return back to the Android recovery screen menu.




12. Tap the Power button to "Reboot system now" which will power-cycle tablet and eventually power back on to the Initial Set-up / Welcome screen present when you first turned on your tablet.
As you're going through the options don't do the factory data reset, look for wipe cache partition then follow the instructions to reboot.






Hope this helps!!! Let me know if you need more help
