during booting

What you are seeing, is likely the standard splash screen for the video card.

The standard boot sequence of events is:

POST check of drives.
Splash screen for video card.
POST screen for motherboard.
Seek boot drive.
Load operating system.

Does your system stop after the video splash?
If so, check the jumper for clearing the CMOS memory, it may be in the clear position.
Also, check that your keyboard is connected properly.
This could also indicate a problem with any of the system devices or plug in cards.
Did you change anything just before this happened?

If your system does not give you a POST screen, and just loads the operating system, this is a security feature that some motherboards have.
You need to set a jumper on the motherboard to allow you to access the BIOS setting program.
