    Hello! First of all, sorry if I posted in the wrong section, but I am new to this forum and I kinda need a little help.
    So, two days ago I started experiencing a problem with my PC. I turn it ON and after about 5-10 it restarts and gives me the message ""Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". If I just turn it off and on again, it works fine. But still this is very annoying.
    I tried to look up this error on the internet, but I couldn`t find anything useful.
    So, what can it be the problem ?

    PS: This thing started two days ago when I bought a new USB wired mouse. Could this be the problem?

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Firstly we need a bit more information about your PC in order to make any kind of informed response. Please provide the following:

    - Exact make and model of the PC, assuming its a prebuilt system like a HP or Dell etc?
    - If it is a self / custom build, please provide make and model of the motherboard, CPU, RAM, harddrive(s), power supply etc. The more information the better.

    For some basic information please download the TSG System Information Utility (linked in my signature), run it then copy and paste the information shown into a reply here.

    I wouldn't think the mouse would cause the problem, but can't totally rule it out due to the timing.

    - I would suggest downloading Seatools from Seagate and running some diagnostic checks on your harddrive.
    - Any reason why your antivirus is disabled?
    - Do you know the exact make, model, wattage and approximate age of the PC power supply?

    I ran a few diagnostic checks. Everything seems to be fine.
    I turned off my firewall one time because I was having problems connecting to some websites and I think that turned off the Windows Defender too.
    My power supply is an Inter-tech Energon 650W. I have this build for about a year and a half now.
    Although, this is the second day without any restart or error. So, now, I am even more confused.
