After about 1 year, my Spresso system began rebooting during boot up - in a near infinite reboot loop. The system would eventually successfully boot, but often after hours or boot attempts. Once booted the system ran fine until it needed to be rebooted again.
Working with ASUS tech support, I was able to determine that the power supply was bad and returned the system for a powersupply replacement.
A couple of years later, the same problem has started again. I am having difficulty locating a replacement power supply. The ASUS parts store seems to be always sold out.
If anyone is aware of a source for a powersupply that will fit the form factor and power the ASUS SPresso system, please post.
I fixed one of these SFF PSUs this week for a client, he also was experiencing power up & stability issues, basically the problem stems from the use of heat intolerant Teapo capacitors, poor case airflow & low CFM 70mm fan.
The solution is simply replace the capacitors with better quality Low ESR components from(but not limited to) Rubycon, Panasonic, Sanyo OR SamXon... a degree of electronics ability is required so if that doesn't sound like you perhaps consider taking it to your local electronic technician.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

hi Andrew. "Upon the 'Preparing automatic repair' window, press-and-hold Power button 3 times to forcefully shut down the machine. The system will enter boot repair page after 2-3 times of reboot, choose Troubleshoot, then go on to Refresh PC or Reset PC."

Does it just shuts down or it reboots?
If it shuts down this type of problems can be resolved by scanning the computer for a virus or using the Windows Repair Disks. During boot if you can hit F8 and use safemode with command and prompt.
1 Type CHKDSK/F then hit enter
2 Press Y then hit Enter then reboot to see if this works.
If it reboots while booting up then.
Other things that might be preventing the computer to boot up most likely is the memory.
Take out the memory put it on a different slot or try a new memory.
Also make sure that the power supply fans are not dirty this prevents the computer to bootup.
Sounds like a bad boot sector,to fix this try booting from your windows 7 disk.To do that reinstall the disk into a cd rom drive and reboot the system,as the system starts to reboot tap the Esc key.Doing that will bring up the Bio's.Use the arrow keys to get to the Boot section,Once there set the Cd rom that has the disk in it as the first boot device,then save and exit.The system will reboot from the disk,you'll see a lot of scrolling words,that's the boot loader reinstalling.The system should now boot as normal and you can remove the Cd from the drive you will not need it to restart again,the system will see that the CD is not in the drive and will automatically find the C drive for booting purposes. Hope this helps,good luck
Write down the exact error messages ....... that you receive while the computer is booting Windows.
Click "Start > Run Type "msconfig" in the field and click "OK." Click the BOOT.INI tab.
Check the box next to "/SAFEBOOT." Choose "MINIMAL" to reboot Windows in safe mode. Select "NETWORK" to reboot in safe mode with network support. Choose "DSREPAIR" to reboot in Directory Service restore mode.
Click "Performance and Maintenance" in Control Panel. Select "System." Select the "Hardware" tab. Click "Device Manager." Select the device that you added to your computer most recently. Right click the device and select "Properties." Click the "Troubleshoot" button and select the option that best describes the symptoms your device is experiencing.
Click on all of the plus signs next to the entries in Device Manager to expand all the devices. See if there are any black exclamation marks on a yellow triangle. This indicates a problem with your device. Also see if there are any red X marks near the devices. This indicates that the device is disabled.
Click "Start > Run." Type "msconfig" and select "OK." In the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck the /SAFEBOOT option. Reboot your computer. If the computer starts normally, you're finished. If it doesn't, reboot in safe mode and click "Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System Restore. and Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time." Choose a date on the calendar that is at least one day prior to the time that your computer began experiencing boot problems.
Reinstall any software programs or hardware you removed one at a time. Reboot the computer after each installation. Make careful notes of any error messages or boot problems you experience.
Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.
Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".
Hi Asif, Did you install there something new on it? Maybe could help to push the F8 key after POST (just after the DELL logo disappeared and before Windows logo would appear) and choose to start with last configuration which worked. If this doesn't help then after F8 choose to start in Safe Mode and uninstall the failing application after you log into Windows.
"I had the exact same problem tonight. I put in a DVD and it locked my
Toshiba RS-TX20 up. It simply wouldn't respond to anything but
unplugging. Then it went into this infinite loop of trying to power up.
I finally got it to boot:
Hold the eject button on the unit continuously while it boots up (be
patient!). It didn't open the tray until a couple minutes into the
powering up process. After I took out the disc, it booted up normally
at the next try.
I am guessing that there's a very small window during the booting
process that the dvd drive isn't locked and you have to push the eject
button in that small window to get the tray open. Since we don't know
when the drive is unlocked, the best bet is to hold down the eject
