Considering the problem occurs systemmatically, at this menu, I'm assuming there's something up with the motherboard.

This could additionally be a problem with the video card, even memory, but my presumption is leaning heavily onto the board. The only way to attempt a fix would require another motherboard to test from.

:( Not much else to provide, motherboards are hardly fixable.

I was having this same problem. Not being an expert I gave some good old "give it a try" ideas.
I unplugged my dvd/cd player and got back to the regular screen of windows, everything else works good. I am going to take this as it needs to be replaced. If anyone has suggestions as to what to buy, I would appreciate it. Mine is a HP pavilion a705w.
Thank you!
Hopes this helps someone.
