computer won't boot to window, stuck at bio screen

  jj hu 07:57 25 Feb 2018

So I recently bought a new power supply, and replaced the old one. When I finished I restart the computer and got to the MSI bio screen, I set everything to default, and exited the bio, but every time I do that, the computer boot back to the bio screen, instead of boot to the window screen. When I press F8, the screen says no profile to load.

Double check all connections, you have possibly disturbed the data lead to your hard drive. Is hard drive listed in BIOS?

it is connected to the hard drive according to bio; in my boot priority uefi hard disk is listed as the first one;

what make is your pc , before going custom built I have some Packard bell pc's , I could get different boot menus etc to come up by tapping f5 at power up but the manuals did not state this , I found out through geek chats.

I would suggest downloading a version of Linux and burn it to a CD / DVD and boot from it. Run as a "live" system - Do Not Install. This will then enable you to view your SSD and copy data off to another drive.

Then use a Windows disc, you don't mention which Windows you are using, to run a repair of your system.

does the problem occur when you type your password and press Enter at the Windows log-on screen?

I can't get to window, the computer only boot to bios screen, and it stuck there. How should I put it, it is almost like a loop, you save and exit the bios, only to get back to bios screen.

But does the HDD show in the BIOS?

I think you need to check the power and data cadles to your HDD.

Yes, the HDD is connected, its in the boot menu, and photo of that is on top;
