Question about Computers & Internet
The board is an Asrock board, socket 478, and therefore quite elderly. You can download a manual for this board here.
This error is quite common and can often relate to Hardware, but is given for a variety of reasons and has a variety of solutions. I give a few below:
1. Enter BIOS (usually Del or F2 during early boot) and set to default settings. Whilst in BIOS check that hard drive, optical drive, and memory are all accurately detected. Reboot and see if they work.
2. Clear CMOS, the manual will tell you how to do this. It is usually a 2/3 pin header with a jumper across 2 of the pins. To clear the CMOS the jumper usually is moved to the other 2 pins under certain conditions.
3. If you have more than one memory module try them each individually. Turning off the computer and rebooting with each one on its own.
4. Try rebooting after disconnecting the hard drive.
Don't forget whenever working inside the machine turn it off, disconnect from the mains and make sure you are grounded do that there is no static around which may damage parts.
Having tried the above you are heading towards the realm of CPU failure or part of the motherboard having failed, and needing replacement for the computer to work and I doubt the economic sense of this, unless you get used parts from eBay or something like that. The money my be better being put toward a new or better 2nd user machine.
Hope something here works

You need to flash your bios before it becomes totally corrupted. You are losing small bits of information that your motherboard needs to continue functioning.
I have what i believe is the proper page for your bios, but your exact model doesn't show up when I search the site, so the best solution for your problem is the MSI live bios update located at the bottom of this webpage:
Simply install that and allow it to automatically fix your bios for you.
