Having problems with the reboot. It shows the asus page, then the windows page, after the screen power light blinks off and then it keeps cycling. I have replaced the bios battery as I thought this may have been the problem.

Any help appreciated

What version of Windows?

No safe mode boot?

No error messages?

Malware?

What led up to the system not booting properly?

Have you changed any Bios settings recently or installed a new version of windows. If you are running any SATA drives in AHCI mode then your windows may not recognize it and just restart once it tries to boot windows.

To add my two cents worth.

Any time you change the CMOS battery, you have to enter the BIOS set up utility.

Once you are in the set up utility you have to correct the time and date which would have defaulted back to the start time and date burned into the firmware.

You should also try using a setting called system defaults or fail-safe defaults, this setting is found in a main menu in the BIOS set up utility.

You should also re-detect all hard drives, as those settings were lost once the BIOS/CMOS back up battery was removed.

Can you access the BIOS set up utility?

Windows is crashing and auto rebooting. First thing is to stop it from doing this:
See this:
http://www.watchingthenet.com/prevent-auto...s-occurred.html

Boot up Windows normally. After the BIOS process has completed (POST process), press and hold "F8" to access the Advanced Options Menu (before Windows displays the loading screen) as shown from XP below. Vista loading screen will look similar).
