My computer freezed. Since the one who is using that time is a child what he did was pull the plug then put it back. I don't know if it has something to do with it but when he turned it on again it does not start. When I check it there is power, it seems it booting properly, though there is short beep at the start of the booting but the monitor remains black. When I check the monitor it is properly working. I tried to clean the memory but with the same result. What could be the problem? Thank you very much.

Re: desktop compter problem
Well since he pulled the plug you may want to check all the connections on the back of the computer from the monitor , he may have knocked something out a bit causing your monitor not to work....also check the connections on the back of the monitor....

Why not just replace the CD drive in the PC? Don't be afraid to pull the cover.Turn the PC off,but leave it plugged in(the grounded plug will prevent static damage).Disconnect the drive,pull it out,put in a new one.(Don't forget to match the option pins on the back of the drive to set it for "slave" or "master".
Looking at a picture of the mother board, the cmos battery is located by the 4th (counting from the bottom) PCI slot. This battery is round like a watch battery. Make sure the power is unplugged from the computer and then pull the battery. You will see a silver tab holding the battery in, a small screw driver will let you move the tab over and the battery will pop out. Let the computer sit like this for about 30 mins (some models require far less time, others more, but 30 mins is a good average) then put the battery back in and plug the compter in. When you turn on the computer of get into the BOIS you should see the date and time are way way off. This indicates the cmos has been cleared.
You have three choices..
1...Try to do a system restore to an earlier date.
This will take your comuter back to an earlier time when it was operating good, pick one of the darkened dates before your troubles started..
To do a restore: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
2...Buy a restore disk from Emachines
3...Buy and Install a new operating system...
