When I start up my PC, I get stuck on a boot menu

When I start up my PC, it is blank for a few seconds before going onto a boot menu which I can't edit or go into anything from. I can't get to the windows menu from it and It's really annoying me. Can anybody help me with this

what does the boot menu list?

It lists five things:

  1. Windows Boot Manager

  2. ATA HDD: SAMSUNG M27LN256HAJQ-000L2

  3. ATAPI CD: PLDS. DVD-RW DA8AESH

  4. PCI LAN: EFI NETWORK (IPv4)

  5. PCI LAN: EFI NETWORK (IPv6)

I don't know what any of these mean and plus when I click on them nothing happens. Any suggestions?

I would try selecting "2" and see what happens. Maybe you need to move up/down in the menu by using the arrow keys or sometimes a couple of the Function Keys

I can move up and down and select the options but when I do it just does nothing. I tried selecting 2 but it didn't work :(

Looks like a corrupt drive or boot manager.

Do you have any sort of rescue media? you can download and make a boot media from MS here you can put it on USB or burn it to a DVD.

Once mad then boot with the media inserted and do a start up repair. from the menu.

Hi fruit bat I know you wont mind me saying this. His pc is unusable , you forgot to mention when making the image , somewhere during the process he needs to select "to use on another pc" or words to that effect.

His pc is unusable

....but if he has the bootable rescue media, suggested by FB, he might well be able to start his PC from that and then continue to repair it.

I think your OS was crashed or you got any type of malware in your windows. You can jus diagnose your windows or diagnose your BIOS.
