:hello:  Welcome to the forums.

Is your system overclocked? If so, it probably means that it is unhappy with some BIOS settings, failed to boot the first time, and successfully retried.

Clear the BIOS and try to boot. If you can, that means that your problem was caused by BIOS settings. If you get the same behaviour, you may have a hardware problem.

In that case, we will need system specs.
