Question about Computers & Internet
You can try to manually reset the CMOS by locating the CMOS jumper on the motherboard, unplugingg the computer and removing CMOS battery (small watch style battery). Move the jumper over to the empty and center pins. Re-install the cmos battery for a minute. Then remove the CMOS battery again and put the CMOS jumper back to it's original position. This should reset the bios. If you can get into the CMOS memory settings before the computer tries to boot to windows, you can use the reset option thru the BIOS. Get to the bios usually by hitting either the delete key or F2 key right after the computer starts up.
Sometimes, a computer will do this if a piece of hardware goes bad. So, you can try to remove all drives, except for the hard drive, from the motherboard and try starting the computer. If this works, you can connect one piece of hardware (CD drive, etc) at a time until you get the same problem to find the bad hardware.
There is a possbility that your motherboard is damaged, which is the reason for your symptoms. All you can do is use a process of ilimination to be certain.
Please let me know if this information is helpful and if I can assist you further. Please provide as much detail as possible so I can give you the best possible assistance. Also, I attempted to get some information on your particular board and was unable to find anything under N 15235. Is there any other identifying information on your board?

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to
cmos to restart (this is only a guide on how to enter BIOS)
it sounds like you have a faulty lead
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
hope this helps
