Damn, I will tell you the full story.
My PC -Accidentally- after booting (W10Logo) show a problem message (actually two), I take a shot of them and will put them here in this post.
To bypass this message I press Enter and the W10Logo appears for half second and message pop again, I press Enter contionsly to successfully boot and open the W.
Today; when I opened my PC; PC shut down. After the W10Logo appear, and i am was in this loop.
So I decided to Setup the W again, I used same W CD and format C and setup windows in it, that is the same thing that I do when setup a W.
Now windows Setup complete "Copying Files" and "get files ready for installation" and other tasks below it, and the W restart to complete the Setup.
After restart and W10Logo the error messages appear.
WHAT CAN I SOLVE THIS PROBLEM!!!!
*sorry for my bad english

This could be due to a hardware problem.

 

If the computer was pre-installed with Windows disable SecureBoot in UEFI settings. If you have anything called QuickBoot or Fastboot disable it also.

 

In order to boot a diagnostic disk called UBCD you may need to enable Legacy or CSM boot.

 

UBCD

 

http://mirror.sysadminguide.net/ubcd/ubcd538.iso

 

Burn the iso to a CD or if you have a spare USB flash drive use Rufus. Boot UBCD and at the menu screen select Parted Magic. On the desktop of Parted Magic select Disk Health and run the short/long tests.

 

If the hard drive passes boot UBCD and in the Memory section select Memtest86+. Run it for at least 6 passes.

 

If you want to attempt a clean install of Windows 10 instead of using UBCD do a clean install per the below BC guide. If the computer was pre-installed with Windows 8 or 10 use the convert GPT command. If Windows 7 it may be either convert GPT or convert MBR depending on the firmware of the motherboard.

 

You can substitute the clean all command for the clean command in the guide. Clean all will zero out the hard drive. It will be finished when you see the diskpart command again.

I am a noon in programming. I don't understand you. But now when I tried to install Windows 7 and I formated C (a error message pop up tell that Partition not formated but it formated!) anyway when I press install, a new screen pop up and on it "The installation was cancelled"
"windows could not format a partition on disk 0. the error occurred while preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x80070057"

It sounds like the hard drive may be bad. What is the make and model of the computer or the make and model of the motherboard if custom built.

Do you have a USB adapter to connect the drive to another computer? 

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/SATA-PATA-IDE-to-USB-2-0-Adapter-Converter-Cable-for-2-5-3-5-Inch-Hard-Drive-/321866626452

 

If not and you want to recover data then download the UBCD iso file. Burn the iso file to a CD. Right click the iso file on a Windows 7 or later computer. Select Burn Disk Image. Boot. Select Parted Magic from the Menu. Copy files to USB flash drive or external hard drive.

 

You can also burn to CD using isoburner.

Firstly, Glad you have Windows back!. 

 

If you have not done so already make sure you back up your important data to another device like a USB flash or USB hard drive. After backing up your critical data download Seatools for Windows and run the short test. If it passes run the long test.

 

If the HD is WD  then use WD's software.

 

If the drive passes run memtest+ for at least 6 passes. There is a free version.

 

https://www.memtest86.com/

 

If everything passes I would recommend you create a complete disk image to a USB external hard drive using software like Macrium Free, Aomei Backupper Standard, or Easeus Todo Backup Free. All let you create a bootable disk so you can recover the image if the computer does not boot or the hard drive fails.

Yes, if the drive is on the verge of failing then the tests can send the computer over the edge. That is why you should back up  your important data first even if you do not do the tests if the data is important to you.

 

If you hear a sound from the hard drive I urge you to backup your data as soon as possible.
