Well, as you have read, my computer crashes when it says "Preparing Automatic Repair", or sometimes if it does not crashes yet it could say "Diagnosing Your PC", but anyway, it crashes.

My problem started when I was playing an Indie Game... yup, that game it does not requires a good damn PC, so I don´t think that game is the reason of the problem. However, when I was playing the computer crashed, and for some reason when I tried to turn off the computer pressing the power button, it didn´t work, so I turned off the power supply, and I started to search in the forums solutions for my problem. Anything haven´t worked, disconnecting the PC and pressing the power button, or pressing f8 and selecting "safe mode" (I can´t, because it crashes). Or maybe I did something wrong.... but I need help, I´ve built my PC less than a month ago. I will appreciate any comments that will be helpful for me, and my PC. And sorry for my bad grammar.

Hi there Martin_130,

Your computer will currently not boot right?

In many cases, this "Preparing Automatic Repair" message could be associated with drive problems. My suggestion would be to take your drive out of the system, attach it as a secondary one to another computer, back up the data stored on it and run some brand specific testing tool, so you can make sure it is in a healthy state.

Let me know how this goes,

I didn´t try your solution, because now the problem has changed, now the computer doesn´t beep, so that means the PC doesn´t display image in the monitor... maybe that is not a big problem, and I searched if there are solutions for that problem.... and indeed, there are too many of them, but anything hasn´t worked. I don´t know what to do now.
